If your name is Robin Givhan, turn away now. Rodarte’s controversial Spring 2014 collection is now available for pre-order on Moda Operandi, and that ‘spangly bra top’ singled out by our fearless cultural commentator as one of the biggest failures in the collection? It costs $6,440.
We’re not sure if we’d rather have Elijah or the heavy duty silver ear cuff.
On the same day a much poo-poohed Allure issue disclosed her weight on the cover then showed her completely naked inside, Zoe Saldana had the guts (literally) to arrive at Tuesday night’s Star Trek: Into Darkness L.A. premiere in a torso-exposing dress.
In case you haven’t already heard, Keira Knightley and James Righton tied the knot this weekend in the South of France at what looked to be a lovely, low-key ceremony. So low key in fact, that the actress donned a dress she pulled out from the back of her closet — not the worst idea when your closet is filled with gorgeous Rodarte frocks.
Season three of Game Of Thrones premieres this Sunday and pretty much everyone is obsessed. We’re obsessed. Food sites are obsessed. Even Vogue editors are obsessed. But it’s obviously not the mass beheadings or Medieval machismo that have us hooked. It’s the runway ready fashion.
For just a few dollars, you can now snag a piece of Rodarte…for Starbucks?
Last Thursday, hot on the heels of their much-buzzed-about Spring 2013 collection, Rodarte‘s Kate and Laura Mulleavy chatted with us about the experience of working on the L.A Philharmonic‘s production of Don Giovanni, and how, exactly, they translated their inspiration of medieval, fantasy role-playing games to the edgy, critically-lauded collection that took the runway by siege just last week.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied finally exchanged vows in California this weekend, but the most important question on our minds was: who designed the dress? There was speculation that the 31-year-old actress would don a Christian Dior creation, but we scoffed at such a thought since she slammed John Galliano for his anti-Semetic remarks last year. We thought that Portman would wear one of her favorite brands Rodarte, and as it turns out, we were right.
Last week we showed you sketches of Rodarte‘s fancy costumes for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s production of Don Giovanni. Now we’ve got actual pics of the costumes and the Frank Gehry-designed set.
Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte are two of the coolest designers out there. And not only did they create amazing the ballet costumes for Black Swan, the sisters are now designing pieces for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s production of Don Giovanni.
How do we know that The Hunger Games movie is going to be full of fashion? Because it’s official fashion Tumblr Capitol Couture keeps dropping hints that just about every major avant garde fashion house in the world is donating its talents to the film’s costume efforts — including Rodarte.
Rooney Mara‘s fashion hits just keep on coming!
Kate and Laura Mulleavy are the latest designers to pair up with A Magazine, the biannual mag that invites designers to take over an issue and make it their own. Obviously, A Magazine Curated by Rodarte totally rules.
There is no dearth of model lip-synch videos, and Rodarte did all of them one better by playing a rousing game of 20 questions during the fitting for its spring show.
The theme of W‘s July issue is music and style, and while we loved the mag’s feature on Beyoncé, our favorite spread involves 10 designers and their stylish musical muses.
When one brand rips off another, it’s generally a case of one producing a cheaper version of something the other makes. But a brand producing an almost identical copy of something, and then charging four times the original price? That’s just dumb.
What do Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Doutzen Kroes, and Milla Jovovich have in common? Yes, they’re all in Cannes but, more importantly, they all looked awesome. Kirsten rocked polka dot Rodarte while Milla was statuesque in Prada. Doutzen and Charlotte both opted for black, though the former came in the form of a sleek, drape-y gown, while the latter was a brave, pregnant tummy-baring skirt and shirt combo. Who was your fave?
Admittedly, the bevy of expensive gowns at this year’s Oscars wasn’t the most exciting we’ve ever seen, but that didn’t stop a few looks from standing out. And among the ones that did, there were some pretty clear cut trends. Take a look at the colors and ideas that dominated the night and let us know if you see any trends you’ll be taking off the red carpet.
It’s the Oscar dress everyone was waiting for. On Sunday, Natalie Portman stepped out onto the 82nd Annual Academy Awards red carpet in a rich aubergine, off-the-shoulder gown by design darlings Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte.
Opening Ceremony is one of our favorite stores, and their newest collaboration has everyone worked up into quite an excited frenzy. Why? Because Rodarte is the latest brand to team up with Carol and Humberto (fun fact: the pair actually met the Mulleavy sisters back in their Berkeley days).
