Kate Moss to star in ballet short

Michael Baryshnikov may not be Carrie Bradshaw’s Russian boyfriend in Sex in the City 2, but he found himself another fashion-forward partner to dance with. The dance icon will star alongside Kate Moss in a short film directed by renowned choreographer Michael Clark. Clark is famous for using David Bowie’s music in his contemporary ballets and for collaborating with punk rock musicians. He has also worked with Leigh Bowery – an influential performance artist and fashion designer from the ‘80s, whose avant-garde ideas are said to have inspired Alexander McQueen and Lady Gaga. Moss will begin her intense three-month ballet training this July to prepare for the short, loosely titled Baryshnimoss.—Olga Bran
