Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy, who created the costumes for the Oscar-winning Black Swan, have caught the ballet bug again.
The sisters are designing ensembles for the New York City Ballet’s Spring Gala, the New York Times reports. But the Black Swan flashbacks don’t end there!
Natalie Portman, who starred in the Darren Aronofsky film, will serve as the honorary chair of the gala, and one of the works that will take the Lincoln Center stage will be choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, the New York City Ballet dancer who choreographed and had a small role in Black Swan—and who’s now engaged (or, if you believe the rumors, already married) to Portman.

Needless to say, it will be one stylish affair come May 10, what with the Rodarte creations onstage and, presumably, on more than a few audience members.
Additional costumes for the evening’s show will be by Gilles Mendel, a longtime ballet collaborator, and the New York City Ballet’s director of costumes, Marc Happel, who teamed up with Swarovski for the costumes for George Balanchine’s “Symphony in C.”
