The Best of the Red Carpet from the Oscars 2018

What a wonderful night at the Academy Awards 2018! Genuine support and affection among many of those nominated; provocative films that told the stories of all kinds of people across space and time; inspirational montages throughout the show; and a more diverse group of winners than ever. Jordan Peele wins his first Oscar, Frances McDormand acknowledges all of the women in the room nominated for any award, and challenges those with money and power to work with them to create brilliant new works. Jimmy Kimmel does a fine job balancing comedy and sincerity. And Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway get a do-over at presenting the award for Best Picture and get it right this time. It was a feel-good night, nicely done. But what about the clothes? They were relaxed, authentic and happy, just like the rest of the evening.
