A New Generation Changes the Oscar Red Carpet Rules
A New Generation Changes the Oscar Red Carpet Rules.
It’s hard to remember now, through the mist of time, but there was a moment, pre-Covid, when a movement was afoot in Hollywood to #askhermore on the red carpet (him too).
To try to change what was looking, literally, like a paid-for marketing opportunity for fashion, and the celebs that wore it, into a storytelling opportunity about values and personal choice.
That didn’t last long.
At least not judging by the first full-on, maskless, non-socially-distanced Oscar red carpet in two years.
You can kind of understand it: It’s just so darn exciting to be back, getting to wear fabulous clothes, en masse.
Also, there’s a lot of grimness in the world at the moment, and if the moviemaking world is good at one thing, it’s escapism.
