The Oscars are like a wedding: First everyone has to go through a long, formal reception, and then everyone changes into their fun looks to get drunk at the after party. The biggest post-Oscars ticket is always the Vanity Fair party hosted by Graydon Carter, and this year was no exception.
Jennifer Lawrence looks like a Terminator in her cool mirrored Tom Ford dress.
Anne Hathaway gets photobombed by Jared Leto. This probably happened to her every time she went anywhere last night.
Lupita Nyong’o‘s well-deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar is the best accessory ever.
Paula Patton‘s sexy dress has too much sheer illusion.
Kate Hudson‘s dress has just the right amount of sheer illusion.
Christina Hendricks belongs on American Horror Story.
Alison Brie‘s dress looks demure and innocent, but the rest of her is very much not. The combination is epic. Her ring and bracelet are by Dana Rebecca Designs.
Lisa Bonet and her daughter, Zoe Kravitz.
Amy Adams‘ second dress of the night was not as good as her first one. Movie stars borrowing runway dresses can be problematic, because the dresses are cut for models and are often far too long for the actresses. Amy Adams is probably wearing 12″ stilts under there, and her dress is still a couple inches too long for safety.
Ellen Page looks awesome in Saint Laurent, and she might well be the only person at the Oscars whose hair is as pretty as Jared Leto’s.
There’s more sparkles, cleavage, and adorable couples this way …
Sophia Vergara went super sexy, as she is wont to do. At one point people complained about her one-note dressing, and she shrugged it off saying she’s old enough to know what she likes. Sophia Vergara is pretty cool.
Zooey Deschanel wore a manic pixie dream dress.
Gabrielle Union wore a shiny dress with a lot of cleavage. She wins the prize for best earrings.
Evan Rachel Wood looks like she is on Downton Abbey.
Ellen helps Portia de Rossi with her train.
Brooklyn Decker‘s cream suit is unexpected for a supermodel at a Hollywood party, but we love her for wearing it, even though her feet look like they’ve been squashed into painful elf shoes.
Now Karlie Kloss is wearing more what we expect from supermodels at Hollywood parties, and she reminds us that there’s a reason they all dress like this.
Rita Ora‘s peplum is just fucking with us now.
Allison Williams is on rollerskates under here.
This could well be the best Taylor Swift look ever.
Emmy Rossum‘s triangular mullet skirt has a cool silhouette, even if the bodice looks like an ice skating costume.
Saorise Ronan‘s cool butterflies make this one of our favorites.
