She loves the shoes, the wigs, the colorful costumes, the face paint (she has her own set of it), the absolute silliness.
A sibling of a dear friend runs a circus school in London, so we may be looking to the continent for her higher education.
But until then, she can enjoy her ten-year-old sense of fun (including pratfalls).
Her mother likes circuses too, especially vintage circus posters and gilt big-top decorations past their prime.
And I adore these images from Marcus Bleasdale’s “Exquisite Circus” portfolio in New York Magazine, all stunning looks from the fall fashion shows.
