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?

Maybe a black turtle neck is more existential… how long must I wait?

It doesn’t matter which tie he wears as long as he only wears a tie.

He looks fine in anything he wears. But, it is The Oscars, so he needs to wear the bow tie.

I think that he makes an elegant statement in both of the suits. He is a classy looking gentleman (and even better if he would shave the scruff!).

I like the necktie! No bowties for me!

Mouse on

He looks good either way, though I think the long tie makes him look his age, where the bowtie, makes him look younger. Just my opinion though

alexis cute on

he looks good on the bowtie….

mo lo on

I think he should wear a tie…not a bow tie(too clownish).
