Once Upon A Time In... Hollywood received a standing ovation at Cannes that lasted several minutesactually quite a long time to physically stand and clap, when you think about it. The tale of two down-on-their-luck actors stumbling across the Charles Manson cult is already shaping up to be huge. Factor in the cast's well-documented wardrobe choices on the marketing trail, and there's every reason to take extra notespecifically if you follow Brad, Leo, and Quentin's lead on sunglasses. 

During a photocall at Europe's biggest Champagne-swilling, air-kissing film festival, cinema's rock solid triumvirate provided a masterclass in the art of informed shade wearing.

Just take DiCaprio. By settling for a pair of rounder, softer frames (in this case, by LA-based label Garrett Leight), the 44-year-old found a natural fit for his face shape. And the same applies for Brad Pitt: glass-cutting jawlines suit squarer sunglasses, and so on and so forth.

Lest we forget Tarantino, too. As a man more known for absurd on-screen decapitations than fashion kudos, the Kill Bill auteur gave a nod to the seventies directors of yore: big, tea-stained aviators complete with an accent to the nose bridge. You can almost hear them sucking on a big cigar before rudely berating a hapless runner for spilling a Piña Colada on the set of a softly-lit, unnecessarily erotic detective show. 

What's more, it's a statement pair of sunglasses, and one every man should enlist if you're to channel a Miami mafioso this summer (hint: you should).
