DiCaprio teamed up with director Quentin Tarantino for the first time in 2012 for Django Unchained, in which he played plantation owner Calvin Candie opposite Jamie Foxx in the lead role.

In classic Tarantino style, the movie was an ultra-violent gore-fest, with Candie the catalyst in some of the film’s most gruesome scenes, but his lavish three-piece suits were always impeccable.

The Great Gatsby
