|Daisy is the symbol of Gatsbys dream: pure and naive. The
purity of this dream is displayed through the use of colour she is almost always
shown wearing white.
Daisy comes from an upper-class established background.
This is established from the first shot of Daisy. She and Jordon are shown lying on a
sofa. They are filmed through a filtered lens and are both dressed in white. The scene is
the epitome of wealth.
Other methods which are used to portray Daisys class are:
-her attire, expensive looking clothing and jewelry
-contrasting scenes between her and Myrtle Myrtle is always shown in much
harsher light, wearing bright colours, whereas Daisy wears white
-shots of her house
In reality Daisy has no substance she is careless and self-centred,
what one could call a twit. The choice of Mia Farrow
for the part of Daisy has often been criticized, however she
appears an appropriate choice as she portrays the empty, careless
side of Daisys character very effectively.
