7:36 am
>> liberate ourself from all prejudice and thinking and making sure once and forever that the color of the skin back as irrelevant at the length of our hair. some winners were long awaited. revenant star leonardo dicaprio finally took home an oscar and connected the film to his environmental advocacy. needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow, climate change is real, happening right now. the show also addressed the issue of sexual abuse with a stirring performance by lady gaga. you all know how i feel . and spotlight, the true story of the boston globe reporters who uncovered squall abuse by catholic priests and the cover uptaking best original screenplay and best picture of the year. we made this film for all the journalists who have and continue to hold the powerful

7:39 am
and there were a number of speeches ran long and the music had to signal them off. and it makes hard to do these predictions 100%. the academy seems to have a few of those pictures that no one ever had any of their bets on. and so it becomes kind of odd. i knew two people who got all of them. what can i say. >> with just watching the recaps and watching as much as i could, from what i did say, there was amazing moments too like sometimes you get those, it wasn't like i had those today. >> i agree. there wasn't too many of those, i'm rooting for them, i'm rooting for them and they got it, all the memorable clips, it was okay. i wouldn't call it memorable. it was okay. >> i'd like to see chris rock, though, too. thank you.

won a seat in the . welcome back everyone, 8:16. 38 degrees here in reno, things are really going to be heating up, it is time to talk spring fashion. we have jennifer here, the
8:16 am
she is here to tell us about the top pieces to have in your spring capsule wardrobe. first of all, what is a spring capsule wardrobe? a capsule wardrobe are essential pieces that everyone needs in their closet. what you can do is 25 to 30 pieces depending upon who you are you can mix and match and make different outfits of these 30 pieces you can go around and put they will in with trendier pieces the off-season. i'm thinking 15 shirts, 15 pairs of pants we're talking pieces when it comes to shoes at purses the whole shabang. >> shoes, bags everything is capsuled. always a fight, especially in my house too.
8:17 am
five items someone should have in your capsule wardrobe? i think definitely the first item that every woman should have in their capsule wardrobe is a little black dress like the one we have from maurice's right here. you can wear this to a wedding, work, shopping during the day, put a little jean jacket. you can dress it up or down, definitely a little black dress. another thing would be a smaller lightweight jacket like the one that we have right here something you can throw over a white t-shirt with jeans also obviously a great pair of denim jeans. and i would say a shirt and a white t-shirt. these are mine obviously you would be barefoot.
8:18 am
i would go with a great pair of wedges something you can dress up, dress down it is great. you can wear those with jean skirts, dresses. i think the big question is how much should a capsule wardrobe cost one? >> that's a big question, with these pieces you don't really want to skip on the money. so if you are only going to have one pair of denim in your capsule wardrobe spend that extra 20, $30, you want the piece to last, want it to look good, go through the wear and tear of the washer and dryer and not fade. you want to spend a little extra on i would say the seasonal pieces the more trendy piece that is will go out of style, that's where you wand to save your money. >> i've never heard of a capsule wardrobe. i think i can fit into my capsule wardrobe. thank you so much. tim over to you. good morning to you, we've got a warm forecast still out ahead of us for the next few days we've been above average
