Colour returned to the Academy Awards’ red carpet on Sunday night, with Lupita Nyong’o in a gold and black Versace gown with jewellery by Niwaka; Nicole Kidman in a strapless cobalt blue Armani Privé gown accessorized with 84 ct of Harry Winston diamonds; Viola Davis wore a bright pink crèpe Michael Kors gown; and also in pink was Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan in a powder-pink Calvin Klein gown. Of course there were the more expected hues at the 2018 Oscars: Best Actress nominee Margot Robbie donned a Chanel gown in a bright white; Zendaya wore a brown draped silk chiffon Giambattista Valli gown with jewellery by Bulgari; and Jennifer Lawrence walked the 900 ft of red carpet in a metallic grey Dior number with Niwaka jewellery.
   In the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, The Shape of Water, with 13 nominations, took home four awards, including Best Picture, and Best Director for Guillermo del Toro. Perhaps expected after earlier triumphs, Frances McDormand won Best Actress for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and used her speech to make a stand for diversity in Hollywood; and Gary Oldman, who was the favourite for Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, won his category.
   Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk won three categories: Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Film Editing.
   American director and screenwriter James Ivory, 89, became the oldest Academy Award winner, taking home the Best Adapted Screenplay prize for Call Me By Your Name.
