Today on What’s My Frame? I’m joined by costume designer Joseph La Corte. I have admired Joseph’s beautiful work for years, and after spending an afternoon on Zoom with him I am blown away by his warmth and stories. Prepare yourself, for hands down the best first job story in history!! Talk about being thrown into the deep end and handling it style and grace! All while landing on his feet mind you… pun intended, you’ll see. 

From period and fantasy costumes, to contemporary clothing, Joseph brings his fine-tuned attention to detail and unbridled enthusiasm for design to every project! As he puts it he’s a very lucky man, but to see Joseph’s work on some of the most iconic shows on television including the critically acclaimed FX series Fosse/Verdon, countless HBO series including The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire and Divorce, it’s quite clear to see luck may have been involved, but Joseph’s talent is what kept him at the forefront of his industry. One of Joseph’s other notable credits is Saturday Night Live, today he shares rare behind the scenes stories from New York’s most iconic show.

Joseph’s film credits are just as impressive,  contributing his expertise to the Academy award willing film Three Billboards Outside of  Ebbing, Missouri, All the Kings Men, Sex and the City 2, and School of Rock to just name a few.  Whether the project calls for a modern sensibility, or an interpretation of the past, Joseph brings a true sense of authenticity and a painstaking eye for detail to every costume he designs.

Please join me in welcoming a very special guest to celebrate our 40th episode Joseph La Corte
