Of dealing with Iconic Actress Lady Gaga, Yates states, “Working with L.G. was so collective. She was wonderful. I couldnt have actually desired for a much better starlet. With Gucci, we did quite a bit on our own. They was available in towards completion of preparation and opened the doors for us.”

While the film covers over a number of years, Yates felt comfortable showcasing the advancement of design in the movie. She states,” [Director Ridley Scott] and I are of a specific generation. We endured the 70s, 80s, and 90s. It was really easy. My favorite Gucci age was Tom Ford. Their design [before Tom Ford], I explained it as round and brown. Tom Ford occurred in 94 and tore a strip though it and made it monochrome and slinky and sexy, and he was just amazing. Alessandro Michele has brought on with that approach.”

Yates, who has worked on movies varying from American Gangster to Alien and won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design for the 2000 film Gladiator, advises that anyone who desires to work as an outfit designer to just do the work and persevere. I went to work ultimately for other designers as an assistants assistant for no cash. Youve got to work in every department.
