Illustrated Posters Highlight Different Suits Worn by Leonardo DiCaprio

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is a talented fellow who has starred in many critically-acclaimed movies. And in those films, he's worn a lot of suits. Art director Zi Wei Tan can attest to this, as he's illustrated a series of posters called Suit & Tie – DiCaprio's Suits. The bold, colorful images feature a close up view of attire that the actor wore in many of his films.

We see the iconic white suit that DiCaprio donned in The Great Gatsby, as well the pilot's uniform he wore in Catch Me If You Can. Wei Tan draws everything in a minimalist style, but uses colors and symbols that we're sure to recognize. This allows him to cleverly convey what film is being represented. He'll also add little details like a scarf or pencil that were significant to DiCaprio's characters. It just goes to show that sometimes, the costume can be as memorable as the movie is.
