    We don't know about you, but if we were a ballerina pirouetting our way through a performance, the first thing we'd want to put on afterwards would be a pair of slippers — but not for Joffrey star Jeraldine Mendoza. One good foot rub from her S.O. (and dancing partner!) and she's ready to rock a killer pair of stems. In fact, this petite (sugar plum) fairy enjoys making a statement wherever she goes by showing her personality through her clothes. To prove it, Mendoza ditched the tutu to show us four killer inspirational looks she wears off the stage.

    Without dedication to any particular designer or shop, this little lady seamlessly blends pieces from spots like Louis Vuitton, Free People, Forever 21, and Topshop to create ensembles that make her "feel good and ready to have some fun." Our opinion? We say this ballerina's sartorial style is right on pointe.
