Lupita Nyong’o In Armani Privé – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Lupita Nyong’o also left the Academy Awards to celebrate at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscars party in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

At the ceremony, the ‘Black Panther’ star wore a gilded Atelier Versace gown, which she traded for a Armani Prive look for the party.

The drape on this dress really is beautiful–it looks like it simply drips into a puddle on the floor, and the beadwork is stunning.

Major accolades also go to Lupita’s beauty team, who are always on point and actually completely changed up her makeup between the events. Her rose gold lips and eyeshadow here are fitting for the queen she is.

Allison Janney In Brandon Maxwell – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Allison Janney held on to her Best Supporting Actress Oscar as she posed at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The star traded in her red Reem Acra gown from the ceremony for a custom Brandon Maxwell shirt and skirt with a couple diamond necklaces.

There is just something about an oxford shirt with a formal skirt that is so chic and stylish. I love the flared sleeves and the plunging neckline created by leaving many of the buttons open. Allison is simply slaying it all.

I also really love the continuity this has with her Oscars gown. It really does feel like she got a little more dressed down before going to party the night away after her win.

Ellen Pompeo In Azzaro Couture – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Ellen Pompeo joined many of her friends and colleagues at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star wore a Azzaro Spring 2018 Couture jumpsuit with Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps and a Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ clutch.

One of the good things about the Oscar parties is that stars get more creative than they do at the ceremony, and this look is case in point. The gorgeous brocade jumpsuit is ultra modern and fresh with the plunging neckline, and the black sash–while unique, and I’m guessing polarizing–is a cool high fashion addition.

I love that she didn’t wear a necklace and left her hair down in a perfect blowout giving a certain ease to the whole thing.

Laurie Metcalf In Christian Siriano – 2018 Oscars

Laurie Metcalf walked the red carpet of the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The nominee for the film ‘Lady Bird’ wore a custom Christian Siriano (a designer who was well represented tonight) gown in a subtle pink hue.

The boatneck bodice is really elegant on Laurie, as are the long sleeves. The slight train, impeccable sheen of the fabric and of course, perfect fit, make this a real home run. It’s just so effortless and subdued, and I really like that Laurie and her styling team kept it that way by not going crazy with jewelry.

The one really bold addition is her pearlized purple clutch, and it’s just the right amount of ‘pop’ to the sophisticated look.

Whoopi Goldberg In Christian Siriano – 2018 Oscars

Whoopi Goldberg also attended the 2018 Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 4).

The Hollywood legend and current talkshow host wore a custom Christian Siriano gown. I love the idea of these two working together, because when I think of Whoopi, I don’t automatically think of Christian Siriano.

Unfortunately, that’s about the end of what I love. This is what we can delicately call ‘a lot of look’, and it definitely fits with Whoopi’s M.O. of bucking every fashion convention. It is simply unflattering. The belt. The enormous flowers–I can’t get behind this, and I’m guessing most of you will agree.

Rita Hayek In Elie Saab – 2018 Oscars

Rita Hayek also attended the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

The Lebanese actress wore a Elie Saab Resort 2018 gown that definitely gave the virtually unknown (to American audiences) actress a moment in the spotlight.

I often think of watercolor as a very delicate medium, but using these bold, jewel-toned colors, the watercolor print on the fabric is strong and fierce. While I often turn up my nose to gown that reveal this much skin, this is done in such a refined way–it is classy, and I’m here for it! Oh, and there’s a cape!

Are you as excited by this look as I am?
