http://www.FTV.com/videos NEW YORK - Rodarte's Spring/Summer 2012 collection for New York Fashion Week was one part Sleeping Beauty and another part Vincent van Gogh. FashionTV wasn't sure where they were going with this until we heard designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy say they were infatuated with the color palettef the Disney movie from 1959 and wanted to know where else they could find similar color combinations. Enter Van Gogh, Dutch postimpressionist painter. Nevertheless, as great as they are at using those green and purple combinations, along with other momentous colors like yellow and seafoam, we're not so sure that the adult fashion world would be akin to it. It makes sense, considering Rodarte's front row was packed with teen and twentysomethings like Taylor Swift, Elle and Dakota Fanning, Rooney Mara, and teen blogger/editor Tavi Gevinson. They'd look smashing in a Rodarte getup on the red carpet. What we did love was the Van Gogh that was literally painted on a dress, like the one worn by model Joan Smalls. And the fact that Style.com's Nicole Phelps said the shoulders of some of the dresses were very 1940s Joan Crawford.
