Elizabeth Banks attended the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar party hosted by Graydon Carter at Sunset Tower in California last night.

I wanted to see some dramatic gowns on Oscar night, so Elizabeth gave it to me wearing this Chadwick Bell Fall 2012 dress.

Her green, navy polka-dotted long-sleeve gown with a navy feathered skirt and velvet waistband was the most interesting look of the night.

As always, the more interesting looks are saved for the after-parties, as actress are too scared to make bold choices at the main event for fear of ending up on the worst dressed list.

Elizabeth teamed her dress with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cameo’ clutch and Bulgari jewels.

This was Chadwick Bell’s first major red carpet moment, and Elizabeth did well by him.
