Natalie Portman in "Black Swan"

Natalie Portman’s acting and Darren Aronofsky’s directing chops aren’t the only things garnering attention in the critically-acclaimed Black Swan. The movie’s costumes were honoured on Tuesday at the Costume Designers Guild Awards. Fans can see the tutus Portman wore in the Oscar-nominated film in a new exhibit. 


West Hollywood’s Museum of Contemporary Art will be displaying six tutus (three white and three black) worn by Portman in Black Swan, according to Associated Press. The tutus are part of the museum's exhibit “Rodarte: States of Matter.” 


Kate and Laura Mulleavy -- the sisters behind the couture clothing and accessories brand Rodarte -- designed Portman’s celebrated costumes in the movie. 


Black Swan tells the story of Nina (played by Portman), a troubled New York ballerina who’s given the opportunity to star in an upcoming production of Swan Lake.


Portman has already won a number of awards for her role in the film -- including a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild Award and a BAFTA Award -- and is considered to be the front-runner for an Academy Award.


Black Swan is up for a total of five Oscars: Best Picture, Actress in a Leading Role, Cinematography, Directing and Film Editing. 


You’ll have to wait until Sunday, Feb. 27 to find out whether the movie takes home any awards. The 83rd Academy Awards will air in Canada on CTV.
