The fashion world has breathlessly awaited tonight's premiere of Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. And why not? It covers most of the topics worthy of our perennial obsession—extreme beauty, fraught competition, impossible standards, performance anxiety—and star Natalie Portman, as dancer Nina, is wearing Rodarte costumes while performing in the ballet Swan Lake!
