Holiday Gifts- Lingerie Inspired by The Nutcracker

Yes, I staged yesterday’s Sugar Plum Fairy editorial mostly so I could say “Kingdom of Sweets” multiple times in all seriousness.

Also, y’all, apparently it’s cool among adult dancers to roll their eyes and go “oh, the Nutcracker, I’m so sick of the Nutcracker”, and I’m sorry but NOPE. The Nutcracker is awesome. Julia Lambert and I, like many of us, danced in the Nutcracker for years as children (the number of times my father has been seated at a production of the Nutcracker and the number of times my father has stayed awake through a production of the Nutcracker are two very different numbers). I will love this ballet and this music without reserve until the day I die. I don’t go very often in NYC, because it’s brutally expensive, but every time I’ve seen New York City Ballet’s production at Lincoln Center I’ve wound up sobbing when the Christmas tree starts to grow. So I had a fabulous time compiling bright, colorful, festive lingerie, fit for a Sugar Plum Fairy. Enjoy!
