Leonardo DiCaprio Dons Gucci Loafers
Both Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill donned a pair of stylish Gucci loafers with horsebit detail on the set of the Oscar-nominated film The Wolf of Wall Street.
“Costume designer Sandy Powell never fails to bring real authenticity to Martin Scorsese’s vision, as she has done once again in The Wolf of Wall Street. It is great to see Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill wearing iconic Gucci loafers in a film, which really does capture the heady atmosphere of that time,” said Frida Giannini, Gucci’s Creative Director.
As a symbol of the jet-set lifestyle, DiCaprio’s Belfort and his friend and colleague Donnie Azoff, played by Jonah Hill, adopt the Gucci horsebit loafer, which features prominently in the film and celebrated its 60th anniversary last year, at the time of filming. This loafer has been the choice of international playboys ever since its introduction in 1953, and there is a pair in the permanent collection of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gucci announced.
