Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Alicia Vikander turned to Louis Vuitton to dress her again for the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

The actress wore a teal lace gown, which for me was a big upgrade from her ceremony look.

The color is beautiful against her bronzed skintone, and the dress offers plenty of easy style, which seems perfectly apropos for a party look.

I also love that she pulled her hair out of that messy bun and went with some chic waves in her bob.

While this look will have a hard time competing head-to-head with some of the more dramatic looks at the Vanity Fair soiree, I think it’s a solid win for Alicia.

Jessica Alba In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Jessica Alba made a long-awaited return to the red carpet for the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 26).

She wore a pale blue Ralph & Russo Couture gown from the Spring 2017 collection.

I want to like this look. I really do.

I appreciate the pastel color in the sea of nudes and whites, and it’s a complete dream in motion on the runway. But somehow, Jessica is giving me ‘Barbie in a 50s dressing gown’ vibes.

Do you see what I mean, or am I crazy? Could a bit more grown-up hair styling have helped elevate the frothy number?

I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that her jewel-encrusted Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ box clutch is a true work of art, and I appreciate its hard edge against the soft, flowy gown.

Giuseppe Zanotti shoes completed her look.

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.

The nude, jewel-encrusted Ralph & Russo Couture gown needed little jewelry.

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?
