Gatsby comp

From Benjamin

That both the costumes’ and the production’s design of The Great Gatsby were by the hands of the same person helps to explain how her work for both earned her the Oscar for both, last night. Catherine Martin, whose work with Muicia Prada this page brought to your attention back in May, brought her talent & penchant for improbable material excess to the job of meticulously illustrating improbable material excess. If Nick Carraway narrates memories from an overwrought world, who better to bring that to exuberant life than she? With Set Decoration by Beverley Dunn, West Egg was never so tastily overcooked.
