IRL: Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet

If there’s one thing you took away from Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, it was probably the profound importance of the perfect aloha shirt. As a young Leonardo led his gang around Verona Beach, it was pretty impossible not to think, “I’d rock the shit out of that perfect aloha shirt. And those very blue blue jeans. And I should probably acquire a friend with a pink buzz cut.” That in mind, we went ahead and assembled you a guide to his whole ensemble.

Soft! What light! It’s you, looking like a very ’90s Leo.

Breaking: Here’s the New The Wolf of Wall Street Trailer

With the announcement of a hard release date of Christmas Day 2013 for Wolf of Wall Street, the powers that be have also unveiled an all-new theatrical trailer today. Apparently, the original mid-November date caught a minor snag when Scorsese turned in a reel pushing three hours—and the NC-17 envelope—but what remains looks just as exciting: a fever dream of pinstripes, fun shirts, dad jeans, power ties, money bikinis and just about everything else great about ’90s excess.

Kempt Digs: The 1974 Robert Redford Great Gatsby

Redford

You may have heard of an upcoming Gatsby film from a guy named Baz “shiny things everywhere” Luhrmann. Perhaps here. Or here, even.

With all the hullabaloo around a bow-tied Leonardo DiCaprio, we thought it worth remembering that this is not the only pass made at turning TGG into a movie.

In fact, Robert Redford gave a master class in Jazz Age chic way back in 1974—the year young Leo was born.

Here are five reasons that film’s worth revisiting.»

If Kempt Ran the Oscars...

Aaron Taylor Johnson

We couldn’t help ourselves. With the Oscars only days away and awards season coming to a head, we felt honor-bound to weigh in on the subject of style, cinema and the intersection of the two.

So we collected our memories of the past year’s worth of handsomeness on film and tried to nail down exactly what made each film stylish—much like the actual Oscars, we’re breaking down the movie by individual garment performance, not just handing out awards willy-nilly.

So without further ado, the Oscar for Best Cardigan in a Supporting Role goes to...»

Your Latest Dose of Gatsby

  • Kempt Staff

We’ve said it before, but Hollywood’s been coming up handsome these days.

And even though we originally thought we’d get to see Baz Luhrmann’s neo-Gatsby this weekend, it’s been pushed back to next summer. So instead, we’ll have to settle for these recently released film posters—more evidence of all the literary good-looking-ness to come. We couldn’t be more excited. (A three-piece tweed suit can do that to us...) And don’t worry, you’ll still get your fill of rakish Leonardo DiCaprio this Christmas.
