‘Great Gatsby’ costumer Catherine Martin a Glamour Woman of the Year
Glamour has been rolling out this year’s roster of Women of the Year a few at a time. We know Lady Gaga is on the cover of the issue, which is to be on newsstands Nov. 5. And we know some of the other choices are Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai, models Christy Turlington Burns and Liya Kebede and Net-a-porter-founder Natalie Massenet.
A sampling of others on the list include Barbra Streisand, Kerry Washington, Gabrielle Giffords and Melinda Gates.
But today we’re taking note of Tony- and Oscar-winning designer Catherine Martin. Martin is the creative mind behind the costumes and production designs in husband Baz Luhrman’s films “The Great Gatsby” and “Moulin Rouge,” among others.
Luhrman got called to duty for the occasion, shooting the photo of Martin that’s featured in the issue.
Glamour points out that Martin is a shrewd businesswoman, too: “Her partnerships with Miuccia Prada, Tiffany & Co., and Brooks Brothers boosted the [“The Great Gatsby”] film’s profits,” the magazine points out on its Web page dedicated to her.
