HERE COMES THE RODARTE BRIDE: Rodarte’s Kate and Laura Mulleavy are trying their hand at bridal gowns with the dress that they’re creating for filmmaker Miranda July. Best known for her 2005 film “Me and You and Everyone We Know,” which she wrote, directed and starred in, July is engaged to Mike Mills, another multihyphenated creative who recently published a book called “Mike Mills: Graphics/Films.” A regular at Rodarte’s runway shows, July said the design process entailed telling her friends what she liked from their past collections. The dress for her May nuptials surely won’t be graphically bold like the Cosmic Wonder gold tunic she donned on Thursday at the Hammer Museum and then Purple Lounge to celebrate Mills’ new book. At the Hammer, the Mulleavys and Mills regaled the invitation-only audience, including actress Patricia Arquette and designers Jasmin Shokrian and Scott Sternberg, with personal factoids about themselves. For instance, Kate Mulleavy confessed she’s obsessed with World War II films and Mills explained he immersed himself in the SoCal skater scene because he couldn’t tan at the beach. Mills seems to approve his fiancée’s decision to wear Rodarte on their big day: After all, he owns a pair of Rodarte pajamas.
