i'm super in awe of these girls - one of them is my age and i really love what they're doing.


Kate and Laura Mulleavy, 26 and 24, respectively, are the fresh-faced Californian designers behind Rodarte. Judging by the talent they showed in only their second New York Fashion Week show, it's easy to understand all the brouhaha surrounding this sister act. Rumor has it that they were literally hand-plucked by Anna Wintour to become Vogue darlings. The fall collection was as light as a feather and pristine as a white gardenia. Each piece was lovingly handcrafted with ethereal embellishments: scalloped edges, ruffled trims and willowy petals. The preciousness of the collection was somewhat intimidating –- we would be terrified to spill even a drop of red wine on any of these garments. In the end, though, these clothes are beautiful and bring to mind a Georgia O'Keefe flower.
not sure i like the o'keefe reference, but...

some favorites (also from paper)

i really love these peep-toes!

I disagree with the comments questioning Rodarte's wearability. Dr. Lisa Airan wore it to the Costume Institute Gala and looked absolutely stunning. She was by far the best-dressed, IMHO. This is not the best picture, but it was the only one I could find online. From

Their clothing is stellar and elegant.
People should make occassion to wear it. That dress on Dita is flawless, a breath of fresh air. I think the whole collection is a breath of fresh air.

dita looks like an angel.

airan's face is freakish as usual, but the dress is gorgeous.

do you prefer fashion victim or ensemble-y challenged?

oooh gosh. Wait till you see what these girls have in store for the next collection! Simply beautiful!!! What I love about Rodarte is the idea behind it. It harkens back to the older days with the luxury couture houses defiently pre-marc jacobs where everything is about selling to the masses or styling for street. It's 10x more gorgeous in real life!!
