    Rodarte ladies Laura and Kate Mulleavy will design costumes for director Darren Aronofsky's next film, Black Swan starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as rival ballet dancers.

    The Rodarte gals have already proven themselves to be rather quixotic movie buffs -- from a penchant for horror films to a trippy collaboration with Todd Cole to a recent entertainment contract with William Morris -- so it makes sense that they'd try their hands at costume design sooner or later. Heck, their runway shows are certainly theatrical. Darren Aronofsky's latest seems dark, moody, and theatrical -- all of the Rodarte ingredients -- and as an added bonus, it stars Natalie Portman, who's been on team Rodarte since their start. So farn, details on the costumes are scarce, but we hear the costumes will actually be part of the ballet.
