  • Hoards of screaming fans lined the Leicester Square red carpet as Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page & Marion Cotillard arrived in London

    When Leonardo DiCaprio comes to town, you can pretty much guarantee that he’s not going to be allowed to come quietly…

    Thousands of screaming fans lined the Leicester Square red carpet last night to get a glimpse of the A-list actor at premiere of his new film, Inception.


    And true to his nice-guy reputation, Leo spent many a minute – well, as many as one is allowed at such events – posing for pictures and signing autographs for the patiently waiting fans.

    Joining Leo on the red carpet were his two leading ladies, Marion Cotillard and Ellen Page, who both donned their glad rags for the London event.

    While Juno starlet Ellen opted for a chic LBD and classic courts, Marion donned a patterned Thakoon frock with asymmetric hem and black peep-toe shoeboots.

    While granted, both A-list actresses looked good, we can’t say that we were particularly blown away by either look…

    Also walking the Inception red carpet was their fellow co-star Tom Hardy, who arrived with his actress girlfriend Charlotte Riley – in a floor-sweeping monochrome gown.

    Famous fans who put in an appearance to check out the lovely Leo were Pixie Lott and Peaches Geldof, who were no doubt swooning their way down the red carpet.

    While Peaches went for floral strapless Dolce & Gabbana, Pixie went for her usual hippie-rock look by teaming her floaty dress with a cropped leather jacket and chunky biker boots.

    Sci-fi thriller Inception stars Leo as an ‘extractor’ – a person able to enter someone’s subconscious while they’re dreaming, and steal their secrets.

    You’re already in our dreams, Leo…
