The Great Gatsby Leonardo DiCaprio

Academy Award winning costume and production designer Catherine Martin will be inducted into the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style on Feb. 28.

The city of Beverly Hills and the Rodeo Drive Committee will honor its 21st (and first Australian) recipient for her contributions to the worlds of fashion and entertainment.

Martin will be the first costume designer to get the honor solo.  The only other costume designers to be feted were Edith Head, James Acheson and Milena Canonero, who shared the honor back  in 2006.  Tom Ford, Giorgio Armani, Donatella Versace and other fashion designers have also been tapped.

In 2001, Martin won Academy Awards for best costume design and best art direction–set decoration for “Moulin Rouge.” This season, Martin has received praise for partnering with brands like Prada, Brooks Brothers and Tiffany & CO. to recreate the Jazz Age for “The Great Gatsby” — a project that earned her two BAFTA Awards and Oscar noms for best costume and production design.

“As we look back on our own glamorous past, celebrating her recreations of 1920s design while working with three of Rodeo Drive’s key luxury brands is particularly gratifying,” said Beverly Hills mayor John Mirisch.

The induction ceremony and award will be presented at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.

An outdoor exhibition of Martin’s sketches for “The Great Gatsby” will be on view  from February 17 to March 2 on Rodeo Drive.
