Fans of Natalie Portman's tutus in Black Swan will now have a chance to see the garments up close.

Six of the tutus she wore in the film -- which were designed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sister duo behind the Rodarte brand -- will be on display as part of "Rodarte: States of Matter," a new exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Associated Press reported.

The tutus -- three black and three white -- will hang throughout the Pacific Design Center suspended on nearly invisible resin mannequins made specifically for the exhibit. A tiny hidden motor spins the tutus at the speed of one revolution per minute.

"It's exciting to be part of a legacy that's not changing every six months, because our (industry) is about a constant renewal of ideas," Laura Mulleavy said. "With a film, the costume, it's not renewing that idea of the costume within that film. ... It lasts."

Portman is up for best actress at Sunday's Oscars. She has already won a Golden Globe, a BAFTA Award and SAG Award, among other honors, for her role as a ballerina in the Darren Aronofsky-directed psychological thriller.
