Along with the rest of the fashion universe, we've been chomping at the bit to catch a glimpse of Kate and Laura Mulleavy's first foray into opera. Not that they haven't had a ton of costume experience under their belts — who could forget when the insanely talented sibs took a sartorial stab at tutus and tiaras for Black Swan? But, unless you're Dakota Fanning or an Editor-in-Chief sitting front row at Fashion Week, it's rare to witness Rodarte's splendor in the flesh.
Rejoice! Angelenos can now take in Rodarte's couture-like creations at the L.A. Philharmonic debut of Mozart’s Don Giovanni come May 26th. Plus, the Pasadena natives are working with a slew of artistic heavyweights! Frank Gehry is responsible for those larger-than-life sets and choreographer Benjamin Millepied (aka NatPo's baby daddy) is debuting new routines. And what would a theatre production be without dramatic hair and makeup!? Radarte recruited their go-to beauty crew — hairstylist Odile Gilbert and James Kaliardos of NARS Cosmetics — for the runway-ready looks.
With costumes that feature more than 130,000 Swarovski crystals, this show is sure to stun. And if a trip downtown isn't in your near future, settle for our breathtaking slideshow right here.
When: Thursday, May 24 and Saturday, May 26, 8 p.m.
Where: Walt Disney Concert Hall at L.A. Phil, 111 South Grand Avenue (Between West 1st and West 2nd Streets); 323-850-2000.
