Ballet Beautiful’s Mary Helen Bowers debuts a dance-inspired activewear collection


Ballet BeautifulAs a trainer to supermodels like Miranda Kerr, Karlie Kloss, and Lily Aldridge, Ballet Beautiful founder Mary Helen Bowers knows how to make bodies look good. And apparently, she knows how to dress them, too.

New York City-based Bowers (who became a household name after training Natalie Portman for Black Swan) just debuted a line of ballet-inspired activewear, which is available on Net-A-Sporter and Ballet Beautiful. It’s Bowers second foray into fashion design.

BalletBeautiful_dancer_activewearThe new collection ($35–$175) includes workout slippers, knit legwarmers, wrap sweaters, slim jersey shorts, seamed tights, tulle skirts, leotards—which also look great under high-waisted jeans—all to answer the recurring question, “What should I wear to the ballet workout?” (Or while streaming Ballet Beautiful classes in your living room.)

“You don’t have to be a professional dancer to look like one,” Bowers swears. “I created Ballet Beautiful to make fitness more elegant, chic, and effective, but also as a way to make ballet more accessible to the busy modern woman who doesn’t want to compromise on how she looks and feels.” Ostensibly, her activewear line will achieve the same goal.

At seven months pregnant and in the process of opening a second Ballet Beautiful studio on the Upper East Side, entrepreneurial Bowers is clearly on a roll and setting the stage for more ballet-centric buzz to come. —Jamie McKillop
