While Leonardo DiCaprio was selling his soul to that goat from The Witch for his Oscar, the Eureka Theater was flush with its own parade of gowns and tuxes at the Red Carpet Gala co-hosted by the Humboldt Del Norte Film Commission and the theater, celebrating 100 years of filming on the North Coast. The 88th Academy Awards and clips from movies with familiar locales played on the big screen, local awards were bestowed and a lobby full of locals in their finest clinked glasses and chased after the woman carrying the plate of bacon-wrapped shrimp. And they looked good, too. The people. (And the shrimp, actually.) True to Humboldt's nature, there was a lot of vintage, especially in the way of tuxedos, hats and fur stoles, both real and faux. Plenty of women took a shine to sequins, and it appears trains are back, so watch your step. Check out the slideshow for some style highlights just off the red carpet.
