We've covered the nexus of fashion and dance in the magazine plenty of times, but when dancers appear in a huge ad campaign, it still makes me smile. I love seeing two of my favorite dancers —our ravishing December 2009 cover star Yuan Yuan Tan of San Francisco Ballet and phenom Lil Buck, a 2012 "25 to Watch"—on bus shelters, subway signs, and billboards around town. (The jeans are pretty cute too.)
