Leonardo DiCaprio gave an Oscars climate-change speech that’ll give you chills

A big hug to the great Leonardo di Caprio, also like me of Italian origin, with honor and pride, I rejoice in this success

When Leonardo Di Caprio accepted his Oscar for Best Actor Sunday night for “The Revenant,” he took the opportunity to highlight an inconvenient truth.

“Making ‘The Revenant’ was about man’s relationship to the natural world,” he said in his acceptance speech. “Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.”

As DiCaprio pointed out, 2015 was the hottest year in recorded history. The average global temperature over land and sea was 1.62 degrees Fahrenheit (0.90 Celsius) above the 20th century average — 0.29 F (0.16 C) hotter than the previous record set in 2014.

“Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow,” DiCaprio said.

As The Washington Post reported, the actor’s speech comes on the heals of a recent studywhich suggests climate change may be worse than we thought. The report found that humanity must keep our emissions of carbon dioxide to less than 1,000 billion tons if we’re to have a good chance of keep global warming below the widely accepted limit of 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

This is not the first time DiCaprio has taken a stand on climate change. In December, he addressed mayors from around the world during the Paris climate talks, calling for countries to divest from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and gas, The New York Times reported.

“Now to get there, we must act. We must finally leave behind the inefficient technologies of another century and the business models that they have created,” he said, according to the Times.

In January, DiCaprio received an award at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, for his foundation, which focuses on climate change and protecting the world’s wildlife and ecosystems.

THE ‘ZOOLANDER 2’ WORLD PREMIERE IN NYC

Posted on Updated on

zoolander

If you found Barneys or the Polo Bar suspiciously empty last night, that’s because every single fashion person in New York was at Lincoln Center for the world premiere of Zoolander 2. Derek and Hansel, Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, a handful of Jenners… we could go on. Even Neil deGrasse Tyson made an appearance.

Of course, with NYFW in the air, this major fashion moment was anything but your typical movie premiere. Besides a red carpet, there was a full-blown runway show featuring the likes of Gigi Hadid, Irina Shayk, and Stella Maxwell. Penélope Cruz, Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell all appeared in character, and Justin Theroux reprised his role as the evil, dreadlocked DJ (he danced down the catwalk with Skrillex. #Casual).

Needless to say, there were plenty of memorable looks to be seen. Click through for our favorites!

REFRESH BEFORE NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

Posted on

prepnyfw

It’s not called New York Fashion WEAK for nothin’. As much as we love the next seven days of nonstop shows, presentations, and parties, it’s important to prepare. Late nights, early mornings, lots of running, all while looking our best? It’s harder than it sounds – although it definitely doesn’t have to be. Click through for our (easy) go-to ways to get ready for NYFW. Trust, your skin, body, and immune system will thank you.

While a high intensity workout before a grueling week may seem counterintuitive, hear us out. Refine Method is a fashion world favorite, a boutique studio specializing in interval training that works out your entire body in just 50 minutes. Its founder, Brynn Putnam, is a Harvard-educated former ballerina, so you already know this is a smart workout that will result in lean muscles, not bulk. The small classes allow you to work closely with your instructor and it feels practically like a private session – no wonder Vogue editors and It-DJs love it so much. We can attest that after you try it, you’ll be feeling the burn for days afterwards, a.k.a. a pep in your step worthy of Fashion Week.
