i saw black swan when it first came out last month. i'm not typically a fan of horror, which the film most certainly is, but the ballet-natalie portman-darren aronofsky combination made it necessary viewing. and it did not disappoint. an added plus: the beautiful ballet costumes by the darlings of the fashion world, kate and laura mulleavy of rodarte. these costumes are quite a step from the sequinned, polyester disasters that i wore for performances. then again, i wasn't dancing swan lake.
