Lily Collins In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Lily Collins In Zuhair Murad Couture - 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Lily Collins attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

Upon sight of this sheer black beaded lattice tuxedo wrap evening gown from Zuhair Murad’s Fall 2014 Couture collection, my first thought was they – you – aren’t going to like it.

I absolutely love it. Here’s why. This is a more grown-up look for Lily. She’s done the princess thing to death, so why not head in a new direction?

Sheer isn’t always trashy; it’s all in the way you wear it and Lily is wearing it well and with ease.

A selection of jewels courtesy of Nasrin Imani, Harry Kotlar and Martin Katz accessorized her look along with a simple black clutch.

One of the best of the night for me.

Emma Stone In Altuzarra – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Emma Stone In Altuzarra - 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Emma Stone attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

Looking to another era for inspiration, the actress channeled vintage glamour in a plunging red, pleated gown with deco-inspired sequined embroidery from the Altuzarra Fall 2015 collection.

The dropped-waist, above-the-ankle silhouette had the spirited influence of flapper styling.

I’m not a huge fan of the lace, scarf-like detail, as it feels like a mere afterthought here, although it saves the neckline from verging on too bare.

She styled the retro-facing look with black Christian Louboutin ‘Just On’ sandals and the same wavy ‘do from earlier in the evening.

With plenty of love and also loathing directed towards her chartreuse Oscars gown, how does her ruby-red dress rate?

Marion Cotillard In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Marion Cotillard attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

The French beauty again opted for a non-Dior look, donning a Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture ensemble.

I take no issue with the top that was magnificently encrusted with an array of metallic and multicolour embellishment, nor the artfully constructed, cloud-like folds of the skirt.

I, however, cannot get on board with the black-and-white bow-like appendage that wrapped sportily around her waist. Enough is enough with this look—and that addition was too much.

For those that found no favour in her earlier Oscars outing, I’m not sure this effort will win many more points.

Karolina Kurkova In Schiaparelli Couture – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

After the Oscars, Karolina Kurkova made her way to the 2015 Vanity Fair Party at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

Making the requisite outfit change, the supermodel flaunted a completely different look, this time a Schiaparelli Spring 2015 Couture dress that didn’t scrimp on the pizzazz factor.

While her first gown was business in the front, party in the back, this festive little number brought the revelry from all angles, glittering in tonal sequin embellishment.

Here, she was her own gift, wrapped with ribbons and ribbons of colourful bows, which were added some tongue-in-cheek sass to this glam statement.

Taking into account one of the ribbon hues, she painted on a chic burnt-orange lip and finished the look with her swept-back bun.

Many of you were opposed to her first look of the night as being too underwhelming. Does her second entrance catch your fancy?

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Natalie Portman attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Party at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

As we’d expect, the actress was dressed in a Christian Dior gown. Less expected, but very much welcomed, was that she actually continued to move outside of her favoured black comfort zone.

All the more reason that she was a vision in this creamy ivory design, with a plunging V-back, as she worked its simple, clean lines to perfection.

She styled the look with a silver metallic Eddie Borgo minaudiere alongside a petal-pink lip and dazzling, emerald-green earrings that I won’t soon forget.

If I were to nitpick, it would be aimed towards the buttoned sleeves that bunched a bit too much for my liking and could have used a nip and a tuck.

Hailee Steinfeld In Andrew Gn – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Hailee Steinfeld was also in the mix at the 2015 Vanity Fair Party at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

The trendsetting starlet took a dramatic turn in an Andrew Gn Pre-Fall 2015 gown that really took my breath away.

Manifested in a rich, multicoloured palette, the Byzantine-inspired tapestry pattern was bold and beautiful, creating a stained-glass effect.

Amping up the look even more was the shine of the sequined bodice, not to mention her magenta-oxblood lip.

With her ponytail adding a youthful flair, this look sees Hailee showing a more mature style stance yet still maintaining the risk-taking, directional edge that we’ve come to expect and appreciate.

Chloe Grace Moretz In Alexander McQueen – 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Chloe Grace Moretz In Alexander McQueen - 2015 Vanity Fair Party

Chloe Grace Moretz attended the 2015 Vanity Fair Party at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday (February 22) in Beverly Hills, California.

Slipping into something a bit more sultry than her Oscars gown, the starlet grew up before our very eyes in an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2015 black lace number.

While this was a more mature look for her, it still possessed a youthful, boho flair with its scattering of mini flowers and tiered, embroidered skirt.

She likewise owned the directional bell accent sleeves, and I’m so glad she kept the waist-cinching black leather belt.

Her half-up, half-down ’do was the sweet answer to that punchier red lip.

I much preferred this particular brand of charming sassiness over her evening’s earlier look. Do you agree?
