Eco-conscious DiCaprio won’t take private jet to his fancy gala
By Ian Mohr
Leo DiCaprio is shoring up environmentally friendly plans for his foundation’s annual gala and auction in St-Tropez, sources tell us.
We hear that the star is ditching any private jets and will fly commercial to the glitzy French fête on Wednesday.
Organizers are putting the finishing touches on a “pescetarian” menu that will be “meat-free and feature local, sustainable fish and vegetables from area growers.”
We hear dishes will include “Tropezienne egg” as well as waffle with mushrooms and burrata, and crispy king prawns.
There will also be plenty of wine flowing for the crowd of stars, models and moguls since the event will be at vineyard Domaine Bertaud Belieu.
Art in an auction by Simon de Pury will include works by Damien Hirst, Urs Fischer and Richard Prince. Ecowarrior DiCaprio has gotten flack for taking rides on pals’ private planes to attend charity events, such as last year’s amfAR gala in Cannes, France, after picking up an environmental award in New York City.
