Westerns are hot right now. In fashion, and in film. Leonardo DiCaprio gave fans a “first look” at Quentin Tarantino’s new film “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” on Wednesday. The actor teased an image himself and co-star Brad Pitt on Instagram.
Set in the 1960s era of Hollywood, DiCaprio plays former western TV series actor Rick Dalton, while Pitt plays his stunt double, Cliff Booth, both of whom grapple with making it in showbusiness.
Side by side, DiCaprio and Pitt look like a couple of old school Western dreamboats, ready to ride off into the sunset like two American cowboys. Their outfits definitely resemble those of OG Western stars Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
Their looks were perfected by costume designer Arianne Phillips. Phillips is a major Hollywood stylist, and has worked with fashion clients like Tom Ford on his movie “Nocturnal Animals”. She also counts Madonna as a client and has styled her for her last five concert tours.
