Watch The Royal Ballet's Francesca Hayward Share Her 5 Favorite Things With British Vogue

We love seeing dancers pop up in mainstream media, and Royal Ballet principal Francesca Hayward just made the ultimate crossover in British Vogue's "Five Favourite Objects" series. Naturally, most of Hayward's picks are ballet-related (she even still has the Nutcracker VHS her grandparents gave her at three years old!). In between clips of Hayward practicing in the studio, she shares the importance behind each favorite thing, from the obligatory rehearsal tutu and pointe shoes to the less-expected stuffed animal she never travels without.


In addition to bringing Vogue into the studio with her, Hayward also recently joined the magazine on their home turf, appearing in the March issue of American Vogue. Wearing a dreamy ballet-meets-runway Marchesa gown, Hayward looks just as comfortable posing alongside the other models as she does dancing onstage.
