Leonardo DiCaprio is back on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. An upcoming Martin Scorsese film will do that: Killers of the Flower Moon, arguably one of the most anticipated films of 2023, has seen its leading star to show up and turn out. And while the movie apparently earned a standing ovation that lasted for almost ten minutes, his tuxedo deserves a respect, too.

Since 2002, DiCaprio has dominated the red carpet in tailored suits and classic tuxedos. While there's a trend in Hollywood to dress fashionably, the 48-year-old prefers to go classic and timeless. In a single-breasted tux from British label Alexander McQueen, DiCaprio's fit is what sustainability should look like in 2023.

The actor, who in 24 years old started a nonprofit to support organizations and projects that combat climate change, went for a tuxedo sourced from regenerative wool. To the uninitiated, that means fabric that's crated using less water, and less electricity – McQueen and its owner, luxury conglomerate Kering, uses Nativa merino wool sourced from sustainable farms in Australia.

DiCaprio's white shirt was eco-friendly too in design, and made using organic wool. His bow tie is from an organic silk. Looks great and is gentle to the planet. Inspirational.

Meanwhile he's often been recognised as one of the few celebrities who rewears outfits – something of a trend not just with Oscar winners but members of the royal family (Prince William often seen wearing the same blazer, and Kate Middleton doesn't mind second helpings on big fits).

That old black tuxedo in your wardrobe? Rewear it. No need to go for something flashy. It'll look just as classy as DiCaprio in Cannes.
