Which Leonardo DiCaprio Film Was Kate Beckinsale’s Birthday Dress Referencing?
We live each day holding two thoughts in our minds at once. The horrors? They never cease. And also, time marches on. Babies are born, the holidays come again, the ginkgo tree yellows, and Leonardo DiCaprio has a birthday. These things we can count on for the most part. The actor turned 49 this year, and he threw a big bash where he allegedly kissed his girlfriend, Vittoria Ceretti, 25, and the crowd allegedly hoisted him into the air. One gets the sense that DiCaprio has long been good at balancing the solemn and frivolous—all that yachting balanced with excellent work balanced with his philanthropic endeavors.
But enough about him and the horrors. What about everyone else who went to the party? There were many: Kim Kardashian, Rita Ora, Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Salma Hayek, Lady Gaga, Chris Rock, Snoop Dogg, and the reportedly recently affianced Zoë Kravitz and Channing Tatum all attended. What do you wear to Leonardo DiCaprio’s birthday party? The overarching theme was little black dress (many guests were arriving from the 2023 Baby2Baby Gala, Los Angeles’s biggest night for babies, and were dressed all the way up).
Kate Beckinsale, however, did something a little different than the little black dress. She wore a little black dress from the Blonds’ fall runway, which came with a surreal belt. It was deeply reminiscent of two fictional gems that have crossed paths with DiCaprio on film.

One is the the blue square-cut sapphire and diamond necklace that DiCaprio’s character Howard Hughes gave Beckinsale’s character Ava Gardner in 2004’s The Aviator. The other is the Heart of the Ocean, immortalized in the 1997 DiCaprio vehicle, Titanic. The Heart of the Ocean was heart-shaped, and the “stone” of Beckinsale’s outfit was more emerald cut. Who knows if she was actually referencing one, the other, both, or neither films with her outfit Saturday night, but regardless, it reminds us of what the elderly version of Rose said in Titanic’s fabled alternate ending, “You look for treasure in the wrong place, Mr. Lovett. Only life is priceless. And making each day count.”
