Rodarte Costumes the NYC Ballet Spring Gala

Kate and Laura Mulleavy designed costumes for Academy Award winning movie Black Swan with great fanfare (and controversy).  The gorgeous feathered costumes for Natalie Portman were as much the star as the Oscar winner herself.

Since then, the Rodarte designers have been on a roll with theatrical dressing.  They have collaborated with the Dutch National Ballet and just debuted the clean, modern, stripe costumes for the New York City Ballet
Spring Gala pictured above.  The team was a reunion of Black Swan creatives, with choreographer/dancer (and husband to Natalie Portman post-movie) Benjamin Millepied and the actress herself as gala chairman.

Up next?  The Mulleavy sisters are working on costumes for the opera.  Specifically, the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Don Giovanni.   

I'm hoping they will tackle Broadway next...How about an update on Jekyll and Hyde?
