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! But beginning with David Denby, the critics are weighing in. "Black Swan is every bit as beautiful as a tray of Russian Easter eggs," he cackles in the New Yorker. "Maybe someone should crack one of them on Aronofsky’s noggin and bring him to his senses." Worth a read!

The adulation of Anne Hathaway continues unabated. First,  a glowing David Denby review for her Love & Other Drugs performance in Monday's New Yorker. ("But she’s not just vivid and generously expressive; she has become, in her last few roles, a high-flying actress who reveals everything that’s inside her characters. Through sheer conviction, she makes the defiant-dying-girl tearjerking clichés work.") Her fashion cred: equally upheld, thanks to the Dolce & Gabbana floral cocktail frock she sported to the IFP's 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards on November 29, 2010. Has she finally moved on from Chanel?
