I couldn't quite make out whether the lapel was peaked or notched, but Warren Beatty looked very appropriate. I must say I'd forgotten (until the clips reminded me) that Carson had worn white tie when he was Master of Ceremonies years ago. If you'd asked me, I'd have said he'd worn black tie, but no. To what can we account this four-in-hand apostasy when all the world knows that only a bow tie is appropriate? Most men seem to wear the four-in-hand in black or white, so the peacock argument wouldn't seem to apply. Bow ties were in a distinct minority. Sadly, with the few rare exceptions others have noted, most of the men were dressed no better--from the points of view of both 'correctness' and simple fit-- than high school boys at their junior prom. What happened to hooray for Hollywood?
