Rodarte’s (Black) Swan Song

Dec 8, 2010 By Amy

The Mulleavy sisters have taken on new roles as costume designers for the ballet-meets-suspense film, Black Swan with Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the dark ballet centers around Nina (Portman), a lead prima ballerina who gets competitive when a new dancer Lily (Kunis) comes into the picture. Lily and Nina end up having a very twisted friendship bringing out the darker and reckless side of Nina.

One of the highlights of this film, aside from the feisty rivalries, are the fashions! Laura and Kate Mulleavy created beautiful and dark costumes for movie’s performance of Swan Lake. The duo also made various knit pieces worn by Portman, including gray leotards, legwarmers, shawls, and even arm warmers. The fitted comfort of their knits, along with the silk, tulle and chiffon ballet pieces makes me wish there was some kind of fashion collection releasing alongside the film. Black Swan for Target anyone?

If you’ve been under a rock and haven’t heard about the film, you can watch the trailer below.
