The LA-based design duo adds a romantic jolt to festive proceedings.

In the space of a decade, Rodarte designers (and sisters) Laura and Kate Mulleavy have become synonymous with cerebral, whimsical West Coast fashion. Since their first collection, comprising just ten pieces, they’ve gone on to design costumes for Natalie Portman in Black Swan, win CFDA Womenswear Designer of the Year, and create a red carpet cult following, with friends Kirsten Dunst and Dakota Fanning championing their gowns.

Below, the Pasadena-dwelling pair shares their eclectic beauty and fashion suggestions for your nearest and dearest.
