It’s that time of year again! That is, time for the the human clothing hangers better known as models to strut down the catwalks of Lincoln Center in beautiful, expensive and sometimes absurd designer clothing, for the Fall 2014 runway shows. Each day, we’ll present to you a selection of noteworthy shows so that, even if you… READ MORE »

Rodarte’s runway shows are known for being innovative with beauty — after all, they brought us those gorgeous gold scattered star hair clips, and last fall’s Australian Outback-inspired makeup had every fashion girl clamoring for “dirty” skin and nails for the first (and likely the last) time. This year’s standout look is decidedly more refined,… READ MORE »

Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the sisters behind the label Rodarte, rocked it with their costumes for the movie “Black Swan.” So I can’t wait to see what happens when they get their hands on Don Giovanni, the arrogant, slutty nobleman who meets a nasty end in the Mozart opera. The ladies will be doing the… READ MORE »

“People always wanna know, well, you’re a female designer, do you want to wear your clothes, why aren’t you wearing a gown to this event. In a weird way, I’ve really become distant from what we do … it’s nothing I would wear in my day to day life but I’m much more minimal and… READ MORE »

Okay, okay, so I get it: fashion’s always on to the next. The newest, the weirdest, the most avant-garde — and apparently, the youngest. And that’s why the Fanning children, Elle and Dakota, have been on fashion’s sweet radar for the last year or so, making the rounds in magazine editorials, on blogs and in… READ MORE »

I love Rodarte as much as the next person who loves Rodarte and can’t afford it, but $500 for a pair of socks? With holes in them? I’ll pass, thanks. They’re made from angora goat, and they actually look kind of cute on the model, but you can’t wash them, which would make… READ MORE »

This is crazy: After our post about a Juarez, Mexico-inspired makeup line created by the designers Rodarte for M.A.C. blew up, the company has canceled the Rodarte line entirely. In a statement on their Facebook page, M.A.C. said: Out of respect for the people of Mexico, the women and girls of Juarez and their families,… READ MORE »

Fiber optic shoes? Now that’s something new. Sure, we’ve seen light-up heels before. Strippers have been wearing glow in the dark heels for years, and Rodarte has picked up the glowing shoes trend, too. This time around, Italian designer Francesca Castagnacci has created a high heel outfitted with fiber optics that transform regular pumps into… READ MORE »

Rodarte’s Mulleavy sisters have been involved in some unfriendly press lately over their MAC cosmetics oops, but here’s something nice to offset the bad—a sneak peek at the Rodarte-designed tutus that Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis get to wear in the upcoming flick “Black Swan.” In a nutshell, the movie is a psychological thriller about… READ MORE »

Dang, when people complain, MAC really does listen. Last week, Jessica told you about the makeup brand’s collaboration with designers Rodarte, which was inspired by the culture and colors of Mexico. Two nail polish shades were named “Juarez” and “Factory,” which we deemed insensitive and offensive, because the town is notorious for the number of… READ MORE »

We spoke; MAC and Rodarte listened. After my post yesterday about the MAC/Rodarte makeup collaboration which I think tastelessly names new nail polishes “Juarez” and “Factory,” MAC has released a statement to NYMag.com’s fashion blog, The Cut: … READ MORE »

My favorite makeup brand, MAC, has teamed up with Rodarte designers for a September 2010 collaboration based on their fall collection— but it’s gone horribly wrong. Drawing inspiration from the colors and culture of Mexico, MAC/Rodarte features a pink powder blush called Quinceanera, a sheer white lipstick called Ghost Town, and other items. That’s fine… READ MORE »

For the 50th anniversary of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless,” the Rodarte sisters collaborated with Parisian concept boutique Colette on a line of T-shirts inspired by the film. We were pumped when the news first broke, and now the goods have arrived. In the quartet of designs, one works the classic New York Herald Tribune logo Jean… READ MORE »

Awesome news: Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sister duo behind label Rodarte, will be designing two shirts inspired by the classic French New Wave film “Breathless” (French title: “À Bout de Souffle”). We’re so pumped to see what the two come up with when the tops hit stores a bit later this season; one of… READ MORE »

During New York Fashion Week, models galavanted down the Rodarte runway in shoes with heels that appeared to be dripping wax. These Nicholas Kirkwood creations echoed the show itself, which boasted a birthday cake-esque pile of burning candles as its central theatrical twist. Since the designers have suggested the models were intended to invoke ghostly… READ MORE »

As of today, Fashion Week is officially underway, but with the snow and cold temperatures, getting around in New York City is simply treacherous. This weather makes you want to sit on your couch in PJs and catch up on daytime television, doesn’t it? Thankfully, 12 designers (so far!) have plans to embrace the internet… READ MORE »

When it comes to designing gold medal-worthy Olympic uniforms, why should Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang have all the fun? The New York Times Magazine asked the sisters Mulleavy to design a mini-collection for several star athletes, and teamed them up with photographer Ryan McGinley to create what we can only assume will be one… READ MORE »
