Catherine Martin discusses Oscar-nominated costume design for 'The Great Gatsby

As many are preparing for the Oscars, Costume Design can be one of the most overlooked categories. One the main contenders this year is Catherine Martin's work from The Great Gatsby.

Martin is getting nods all over Hollywood this year. For The Great Gatsby, she found inspiration in Prada, Brooks Brothers, and Tiffany & Co. to build costumes that reflected the best of the 1920s. Peri Ellen Berne, chair of the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style, told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s really amazing that she was able to create something from that time period that’s so current and relevant and was also true to that time as well.”

The famous designer will be inducted into Rodeo Drive’s Walk of Style on Feb. 28. Martin’s sketches will be shown in an outdoor exhibit on Rodeo Drive until March 2. The induction for the Rodeo Drive’s Walk of Style will take place at Beverly Hills’ Greystone Mansion.

Martin will be competing against Michael O’Connor (The Invisible Woman), William Chang Suk Ping (The Grandmaster), and Michael Wilkinson (American Hustle) for the Oscar this year. Martin recently won two BAFTA Awards at the Royal Opera House in London. She has previously won two Oscars for Moulin Rouge!.
