NYCB Vol. 9 No. 32 - Nutcracker


"Upon this costume of so little visible substance, Karinska dripped rhinestone dewdrops around the neck and hip. And with the same drops, in all shapes and sizes, she devised a headpiece of the most exquisite glitter and delicacy. The costume was a vision of liquid beauty.”
