Continuity mistake: When Nina and Leroy are standing halfway up the stairs as he is about to announce that she is the new star ballerina, they both hold a glass of champagne. At first, Nina's glass is almost empty; at the end of the scene however, she is holding a full glass.
Factual error: Toward the end after Nina dances the black swan and she's in her dressing room, Lily knocks on the door to congratulate Nina on her performance. When Lily turns around to leave, her huge double-wing tattoo is visible on her back. No ballet company will allow a dancer to perform on stage with tattoos that have not been properly covered up.
Other mistake: When Nina and Lily are at the bar, it shows Lily move to the seat directly to Nina's right, thus placing Nina on the right side of Lily. However, the entire time they converse, Lily's eyes are looking to her left. Same goes for Nina who is looking to her right the entire time.
Continuity mistake: When Nina watches Lily dancing after filling up her water bottle, look very closely at Lily's back as she spins around and you can see that her tattoo isn't there. As she was wearing a vest and her hair was down over her back, it is likely the film makers thought they could get away with this.
