Last week, the New York City Ballet debuted "Two Hearts," a ballet by Benjamin Millepied (aka Mr. Natalie Portman) set to music by young composer Nico Muhly. For fashion people, the biggest draw of the performance were the costumes by Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte—simple black and white pieces with cut-out sides that would look just as natural on the street as on the stage. Check them out in the gallery above, and then head to our sister site in LA for a glimpse of Rodarte's next theatrical project, the opera "Don Giovanni."
