Natalie Portman, Rodarte Team Up for Black Swan

0 Comments 29 October 2010

Natalie Portman is a favorite of fashion designers, and one of her favorites is Rodarte. For her upcoming movie Black Swan, Portman introduced Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy to director Darren Aronofsky, who brought the designing sisters on to create the costumes for the movie’s “Swan Lake” scenes. Kate and Laura explained to People.com, that tutus are far more than fashion accessories: “Building a tutu is one of the lost couture arts.” It involves putting together 13 layers of tulle and custom fitting them to the ballerina.

Black Swan recently opened to rave reviews at the London and Venice Film Festivals, and is a psychological drama starring Portman, as well as Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, and Barbara Hershey.
