Inspired by four actresses from Maggie Cheung's films ("Hero," "In the Mood for Love," "Clean," and "Heroic Trio") Rodarte's Laura and Kate Mulleavy created the four handmade dresses seen in this Wing Shya-directed video to benefit UNICEF at auction. And, it pays to watch . . . for every click of the short film on YouTube from now until March 31, the retailer Joyce will donate HK$1 to the charity.
The Rodarte sisters also recently announced they have designed ballet costumes for Darren Aronofsky's film, "Black Swan," a thriller starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as competing ballerinas. The movie includes dances from "Swan Lake," for which the Mulleavys designed the stage costumes.
