UPDATE: The Rodarte/Fanning Collection Is Not Happening

dakota
UPDATE: We received word from Rodarte's reps that this is, in fact, just a rumor, and there is no collaboration in the works. For any further questions, please find us shaking our fists at the air, dramatically screaming, "Damn you, Daily Mail!"
We've often associated the Fanning sisters with Miu Miu and Comme Des Garçons, but the pair stepped out in custom Rodarte at the Met Ball last week, posing with the Mulleavy sisters and working it as always. Wouldn't you know, days later, the foursome's photos inspired rumors of a possible design collaboration — fueled by the Daily Mail's alleged "fashion mole" (where can we get one of those?).
A custom gown is often the beginning of a larger partnership, be it formal or informal, but the source says the girls have been "very hands-on" in the design process for an as-yet-undefined partnership, which could be anything from a brief design stint to capsule collection. Who knows what this sister-sister power team will bring? Either way, we're excited and keeping our eyes peeled for more news. (The Daily Mail)
