After the show is the after party and…well you know rest! It is that time of the year everyone, award show season. With NYFW just ending, us fashion junkies still had more to look forward to on these red carpets. On Sunday, February 28, 2016, all of Hollywood’s finest graced the red carpet. Watching the red carpet events, I was stunned at the beautiful elegant ensembles worn by the attendees. My favorites included Jennifer Lawrence and Rachel McAdams. As millions watched the red carpet, flooded the blogs, and read the magazine articles about the red carpet fashions at the Oscars, I took it a step further. I decided to check out a little more details about the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Its one of the most lavish, fashionably conscious after party events in Hollywood. While the Oscar red carpet is a little more conservative, this event gives the celebs a little more freedom of expression in their fashion. I mean that is basically what fashion is about right? So, I did some research, checked out pictures from this event, and made an analysis. Here I formed Society Keeper’s 10 Best Dressed at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. Here we go!
1. Gwen Stefani in Yanine Couture
This year black and red were super hot on the red carpet. Gwen always looked amazing in red. This dress literally stole the show with the red applique and the sheer fabric allowing Gwen to tastefully show some skin. I absolutely loved this dress on her. Kudos to Ms. Sefani’s stylist! She looks absolutely stunning!
2. Alessandra Ambrosio in Balmain
Balmain is one of my all time favorite couture designers and I must say Alessandra Ambrosio did this wonderful masterpiece some true justice. With her fierce presence and killer body, the dress was perfect. Known for their abstract detailing, I loved this dress and I couldn’t see it in a better color BLACK! I also loved the high neck concept adding the bold gold choker to give it more of a modern elegance. Also correlating the gold waist detailing gives the dress that extra wow factor.
3. Diane Kruger in Keem Acra
All I have to say about this dress is detail! Detail! DETAIL! First off I love this wine color, it is very rich and elegant. In addition to color the beading and fringe detailing makes the dress in a category of its own. Diane wore this dress and she wore it well!
4. Kate Hudson in Maria Lucia Hohan
Kate Hudson has always been a stunner on the ref carpet. This gold number should one for the books as far as her red carpet fashions. This dress gave us young and vibrant vibe while still being red carpet worthy which is not the easiest thing to do. However, leave it to Ms. Hudson to do the job. The thigh high slit added some “sex appeal” to the dress allowing her to show off her amazing legs. I also loved the pleating, it gave the dress some individuality instead of your regular free flowing look. Kate Hudson definitely looked like a red carpet goddess!
5. Keri Washington in Atelier Versace
In this dress Keri Washington brought us something different (while in attendance of the Vanity Fair Oscar After-party) with the bright chartreuse straps to set off this subtly detail white Versace number. With Spring being right around the corner, I think this was the perfect dress to make a statement to usher in the season. As we all know, the deep v-neck cut is very much “in” and Keri has mastered that concept giving us that sexy, sophisticated style that we are used to seeing her give us every single time she graces the red carpet.
6. Jennifer Lawrence in Alexander Wang
As I stated earlier black and red were the two colors seen frequently on the carpet, Here Jennifer Lawrence “wowed” us again after taking our breaths away earlier on the red carpet at the Oscars. However, here J. Law took a more simple approach which is why I liked this look. She looked simple, but gave a little bit of edge with the thigh high slit on her skirt as well as the small detailing on the slit. This look definitely complimented her beauty.
7. Miranda Kerr in Kaufmanfranco
Here we have another red number, but this time it’s supermodel Miranda Kerr stunning us in this wonderful gown. The cut out detail of this dress looks ridiculously perfect on Miranda’s supermodel chiseled bod. As we all can see the color red definitely looks good on her as well. I also loved the pocket detailing, it gives the dress some personality. Kudos Miranda!
8. Emily Ratajowski in Steven Khalil
Steven Khalil is one of my favorite couture dress designers so, when I found out he designed this dress I was not surprised. The detailing down by the hem of the dress and the sheer fabric to bring out the detailing was fabulous. This mermaid structured dress and sweetheart neckline gave us elegance as well as edge. This black noir ensemble fits Emily perfectly.
9. Priyanka Chopra in Jenny Packham
Priyanka always bring a sense of class, sophistication, and elegance everywhere she goes. This dress represents just that. This silver dress spoke sophistication very loudly. Who does not like sparkly dresses anyways? I know I do! The small slit in the middle of this drop waist dress showing a little skin added tasteful sex appeal to the dress.
10. Olivia Munn in J. Mendel
This beaded cut detailed dress was definitely a stunner. It complimented Olivia Munn very well. I also loved the forest green color which a different color among the many dresses that were worn that night. The dress fitted Olivia like a glove and the thigh high slit gave it tasteful sex appeal as well.
These were our top ten favorite picks of the night, but lets not forget out honorable mentions. These gals did not make the list, but they were definitely worth mentioning!
Taylor Swift in Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture
Sara Sampaio in Zuhair Murad Couture
Rachel McAdams in Naeem Khan
Malin Akerman in Elizabeth Kennedy
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
