What Tie Should Leo Wear to the Oscars?

02/23/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

With all of his nominations for both Blood Diamond and The Departed this award season, Leonardo DiCaprio sure has had plenty of reasons to trot out the formalwear. And he’s demonstrated his love of classic tuxedoed looks — no splashes of inappropriate color, bolo ties or Jeremy Irons-like dandy style here — opting for elegant black ties at each affair. At the Golden Globes ceremony in January, DiCaprio sported a classic black bowtie, while at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, only two weeks later, he opted for a trendier long tie. This begs the question: What should Leo wear to the traditionally buttoned-up Academy Awards? Would you prefer to see him in a bowtie or a long tie? Or should he try something totally new and different?

My vote is definitely for the long tie (your shot of him w/the bow tie hits me as a little ‘off’. It looks way too small for his build.

Unless the poor man gets a wider bow tie, I’m definitely voting for the long tie.

I think he would look good in either. I am intersted in him winning. He is such a good actor and sure deserves an oscar!

I dont care what he wears he still looks like a little boy playing dress up, where is the attraction? He has nothing on George Clooney, who happens to look handsome in any suit.
