I think we see what Gatsby, Nick, and (probably Fitzgerald saw when he met Ginerva King and later on, Zelda) an almost ethereal woman.  It's hard to imagine (for me anyway) Daisy in any other setting than her posh home with men buzzing around her like bees.  Her beauty is captivating, her aloofness compelling.  One of my very favorite lines in literature is when Gatsby says of Daisy, "Her voice is full of money."
