Katharine McPhee In Amanda Wakeley – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party

Katherine McPhee was also in attendance at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (February 26).

The corset came out to play yet again in her Amanda Wakeley black gown that was a far darker and subtler vision on sultriness.

The hint at gothic romance was enhanced with her choker necklace, with a Halston Heritage minaudière clutch finishing the look.

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.

Elizabeth Banks In Elie Saab Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

There were plenty of warm, fuzzy feelings to be had upon seeing Elizabeth Banks on the red carpet for the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (February 26).

Much like those feelings you have after seeing an old friend after an extended period.

My favourite girl hasn’t lost any of her charm, elegance or grace.

I was excited to see that the union with Elie Saab is still going strong – as most of her magic moments have come from the Lebanese designer.

Elie Saab’s Fall 2016 Couture collection was one of his finest to date, as he showcased his impeccable approach to craftsmanship and returned to his out-of-the-box design which is presented within this masterpiece.

Now, I know I’ll be deemed totally biased by saying that this was one of the best looks of the night, so what do you think?

Gabrielle Union In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

This is going to some as a shock to some of you, but Gabrielle Union was one of my favourites at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (February 26).

First off, her skin is outstanding – standing O for that alone.

Secondly, while there’s not a whole lot of this dual-coloured Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2017 piece, she’s rock the hell out of it -hard.

And lastly, if you have the body and confidence to carry off something like this in such a graceful manner, then why not?

Jennifer Aniston In Atelier Versace – 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Believe it or not, I was happy to see Jennifer Aniston at the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (February 26).

While not much has changed in the hair and preference for black department, I do like that she wore this fully beaded Atelier Versace gown with Swarovski crystal accents as is – with it’s deep plunging neckline and daring thigh-high slit.

If there was a temptation to modify, I can imagine that was vetoed by Donatella because Jennifer has the body to make this work, and she did.

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.
