Aussie costumer Catherine Martin picked up this year’s Best Costume Designer Award at the just consummated 86th Oscars night.
The prolific 49-year-old bagged the coveted golden trophy for her period costume designs in the Roaring Twenties set motion cinema ‘The Great Gatsby’.
Other than winning in the best costume category, the costumer has also scooped up the Best Production Design title, for the same Baz Luhrmann directed movie, at the Los Angeles event.
Before her latest prize at the 86th Academy Awards, the Sydney-born designer had earlier won two more Oscars, in Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction categories, for another Baz Luhrmann blockbuster ‘Moulin Rouge’ (2002).
‘The Great Gatsby’ is a story of a Yale graduate and World War I veteran named Nick Carraway who is fascinated with the extravagant life of his mysterious millionaire neighbour Jay Gatsby. The film stars Hollywood A-listers like Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan.
Some of the exotic ensembles in the movie were co-designed by the Milan-based fashion designer Miuccia Prada.
Apart from the screen adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, the other nominated films in best costume category were ‘American Hustle’ (Michael Wilkinson), ‘The Grandmaster’ (William Chang Suk Ping), ‘The Invisible Woman’ (Michael O’Connor) and ‘12 Years a Slave’ (Patricia Norris).
