Just because they didn’t walk the Oscars red carpet in these looks doesn’t make these stars’ afterparty outfits any less noteworthy. In fact, we’d argue that the annual Vanity Fair Oscars fete brought out a lineup of gowns that could rival anything we saw at the Academy Awards. The proof, as they say, is in the pudding — the designer ensembles below: Kate Bosworth had herself a Cinderella moment in J. Mendel. Ruth Negga stepped out in a fresh-from-the-runway Oscar de la Renta gown. Kerry Washington married sophistication and sex appeal in this Michael Kors Collection gown. Allison Williams was sleek and fashion-forward in Miu Miu. Karlie Kloss brought the drama in a red Naeem Khan gown; and Viola Davis switched up her ceremony look to celebrate her win in a chic Brandon Maxwell suit (bonus points for those Stella McCartney creepers!).
Now that you have the details, it’s time to make some decisions. Who won the Oscars afterparty?
