The Stars of Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood Had a Very Stylish Time...In London

The publicity push for Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood is still in full effect. The film already gave Tarantino his biggest opening weekend after releasing in the U.S. on July 26. But in the U.K., folks have to wait until August 14 to see Leonardo DiCaprio's Rick Dalton, Brad Pitt's Cliff Booth, and Margot Robbie's Sharon Tate on the big screen. Thanks to its across-the-pond premiere, though, the Brits can at least get a glimpse of the stars' real-life style, which was particularly on-point in London. 

For the red carpet, the three top-billed actors all channeled different vibes to equally impressive effect. Robbie was all about the (slightly) relaxed elegance, Leo buttoned-up a little with a three-piece suit (a nod to classic British style?), and Pitt went full '90s in the best way possible.

Both Brad and Leo also busted out their signature style move of late: wearing very good sunglasses. Pitt opted for the same Garrett Leight style (the Calabar) that he wore in Cannes, while DiCaprio switched from the Cary Grant-inspired Oliver Peoples shades he wore for the Los Angeles premiere to another pair (the Forman L.A.) from the brand.

But things weren't restricted to the premiere itself. The actors and Tarantino also took advantage of a photo opp with some very English accoutrements in the background (note the London Eye looming above everyone). The vibe was considerably more dressed down, but Pitt still had the '90s thing going, just with lighter neutrals and white instead of a blacked-out 'fit. Ditto the consistency for Robbie, who looked supremely comfortable at the intersection of "chilled-out" and "dressed-up." Leo? He went for the kinda-staid but still stylish combo of dark jeans and a navy jacket. 

But honestly, let's forget those three. Because we've gotta talk about Tarantino.

I can't tell if the director is wearing the best fit of the bunch or the worst. I think the answer might be both, to tell the truth. That's a Phat Farm tiki shirt, for fuck's sake. It's ridiculous. And yet...it's kind of great! The shoes, not so much, but whatever. That shirt is the star of the show. 

What's the takeaway from all of this Hollywood style in London? Well, that's up to you. It might be that '90s red-carpet style was actually better than we all remember. Ot might simply be that good sunglasses will always elevate your look. Or—and bear with me here—it might be that you need more Phat Farm tiki shirts in your collection. Maybe.
