Heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio is out to prove he’s more than just a pretty face. Last week, at Vancouver’s Fifth Avenue Cinemas, local and international celebs came out to the premiere of his new documentary — The 11th Hour.


DiCaprio produced and narrated this eco-film, which emphasizes the urgent situation facing our constantly diminishing and changing world.

Stars walked the “green” carpet and proved that you can still look good while saving the Earth. And speaking of stylish, there’s a new celeb in town. H&M (Hennes & Mauritz) — a name known around the world — has landed in Coquitlam. The Swedish-based clothing store, which features runway fashions at bargain prices, opened its doors last week. Media night featured an invite-only preview and long lines at the change rooms as we all cashed in our paychecks in the name of fashion.

ForestEthics star Tzeporah Berman is the driving force behind the “go green” message at the DiCaprio premiere.
