Hailee Steinfeld In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Hailee Steinfeld wore her second Ralph & Russo Spring 2017 Couture gown to the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The halter-neck gown is quite striking on Hailee’s frame, and the top-to bottom beading and hybrid cape/train are bringing plenty of drama.

I love how the lining fits it purpose without nullifying any of the magic of this exquisite piece.

Thandie Newton In Schiaparelli Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Thandie Newton attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The star wore a sequined silver Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fall 2016 gown with an Atelier Swarovski fine jewelry choker.

Fashion should be fun, and oh my goodness is this look ever fun. It’s bold, it’s flashy and it brings a smile to my face. While extending the lining from the runway for real world wear was not only necessary, it actually makes the dress even more eye-catching, and of course those shoulder plates are absolutely stunning works of art, from the structure to the design.

Wearing a choker with this look was a stroke of styling inspiration as is wearing her hair long and sleek. I do honestly feel like the blue eyeshadow is overkill with everything else going on, but when you’re having this much fun with your gown, I can’t fault anyone for having some fun in the beauty department, too.

Are you swooning as hard for this look as I am?

Diane Kruger In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Diane Kruger attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a silver mini dress from the Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2017 Couture collection with Messika diamond jewels.

While falling quite squarely into the colour trend of the night, this dress just really confuses me for the occasion.

I love the liquid metal fabric, and the fit is impeccable, but it just seemed better suited to the Grammys.

The love continued to the one-shoulder style and the front sash and yes, even the length, but it just doesn’t seem au currant enough for such a big night.

I think there is one thing we can all agree upon: We are all quite inspired to go work-out and stand up a little straighter, but beyond that, let’s hear it: Do you like this look, or are you with me that it’s a bit of a style disappointment?

Janelle Monae In Alexandre Vauthier Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Janelle Monae attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The singer and now-actress wore a black Alexandre Vauthier gown from the Fall 2016 Couture collection.

Let’s be honest: Janelle’s Elie Saab Couture gown from the ceremony was a pretty tough act to follow, but I like this choice as the fashion dessert to that main course. It plays along to the same theme–black, voluminous skirt, highly editorial–but in a much edgier fashion.

The punk elements of the mesh sleeves and upper bodice and the brackets on the sash are a bit of a departure for the often ladylike Janelle, and she is selling me hard on the look.

Keeping her hair styled the same throughout the night only further cements the idea that her two gowns were very much two chapters in the same fashion story.

Thank you, Janelle, once again, for making fashion so much more than just a dress and some jewels.

Christian Louboutin ‘Marchavekel’ heels and the same Jennifer Behr headpiece from earlier in the day completed her look.

Kate Hudson In Cavalli Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Kate Hudson attended the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a champagne-colored lace Cavalli Couture gown with diamond jewels and a copper-toned clutch.

I really want to like this look, I do, but somehow the proportions just strike me wrong. The lace tiering is beautiful, but along with the ultra low neckline, it just seems a bit off to me.

Her fresh-faced makeup and textured French twist are stunning and well-suited to the gown, but they just can’t redeem what doesn’t sit right with me.

What do you think–am I crazy, or is this just not doing it for you, either?

Sarah Paulson In Ronald van der Kemp – 2017 Oscar Vanity Fair Party

Sarah Paulson attended the 2017 Oscar Vanity Fair Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a two-toned, velvet gown from the Ronald van der Kemp Spring 2017 Couture collection and a yellow box clutch and long Forevermark diamond earrings.

As per usual, Sarah doesn’t disappoint with her daring and much-of-the-time quirky approach to fashion. This gown is nothing if not a talking point, and such a striking color and design.

My only tiny complaint is that it is a bit heavy on Sarah. I wish it had been taken in a bit more like we see in the lookbook, because all the fabric is dangerously close to wearing Sarah, vs. her wearing it.

That small critique withstanding, I love this look. It’s strong and striking, like Sarah herself, and her asymmetrical bob and smudgey smokey eye are the perfect beauty choices to round it out.

Busy Philipps In Elizabeth Kennedy – 2017 Oscars

Busy Philipps attended the 2017 Oscars on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress and BFF and constant red carpet companion of Michelle Williams wore an Elizabeth Kennedy gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Not every gown can be both fun and elegant, but this one does the job beautifully. The emerald green color is striking and then those polka dots! Such a fun addition to an Oscars gown, and so perfectly placed upon the see-through panels. It really is the perfect gown for someone as fun and playful as Busy.

Here emerald green eyeshadow, peach lips and sleek hair are styling perfection.
