A look at costumes by Rodarte for ‘Black Swan’
Have you thought about seeing real world Fashion designers winning an Oscar? Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte are likely to be the talking-point post-award season if they make the unexpected happen – winning Best Costume Design at the upcoming 83rd Academy Awards ceremony. The innovative costumes they created for ‘Black Swan’ are generating almost as much buzz as the film itself.
‘Black Swan’ is not set to open in Singapore till next year, but we combed the internet for film stills to have a sneak peek at the costumes. Inspired by objects like mechanical birds, the New York-based duo designed pieces like tutu covered in broken white angora wool, which gives the appearance of “tree branches growing on [the skirt].”
