Rashida Jones In Valentino – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rashida Jones offered up a relaxed-glam approach for the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Her Valentino Spring 2018 dress relied on its painterly print to make the primary impact.

But I found myself distinctly missing the additional bib detail from the runway, as without it, the gown seemed a bit unfinished and quite casual.

I also was craving a bit more shape to what I would classify as a rather bohemian look for the Oscars parties.

But, I do love her pretty styling with her breezy, effortless bun and striking earrings.

Jaime King In Oscar de la Renta – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Jaime King graced the red carpet at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Miley Cyrus, Karen Gillan and Lea Michele.

With frothy layers of white tulle and a smattering of cascading gold embellishment, she oozed ethereal prettiness in an Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2018 gown.

The whimsical mood was kicked up a notch with her floral jewellery.

Even with the ornate metallic bodice, there is a carefree nature to the style I find most appealing.

Karen Gillan In Ronald van der Kemp Couture – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Karen Gillan attended Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in Hollywood, California.

She brought what I would call a joyously eccentric spirit to the proceedings in her Ronald van der Kemp Fall 2017 Couture dress.

Although this was a fall design, I was getting something of a spring fever from its bright, playful palette and patterned whimsy.

A Judith Leiber clutch and Irene Neuwirth jewels along with her distinct, mulberry lip rounded it out in such a girly-sophisticated manner.

I much preferred Karen’s fresh, youthful zeal, as opposed to the look’s original presentation.

What about you?

Sarah Paulson In Marc Jacobs -2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Sarah Paulson brought some sunshine to the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, alongside Elizabeth BanksIsla Fisher and Gabrielle Union.

I’m sure this Marc Jacobs Spring 2018 look will prove divisive with half being in favour of the gloves and the others stating they kill the look.

The ‘American Horror Story’ actress marches to the beat of her own drum and often ends up having some of the most memorable looks thanks to her fashion-forward choices so I can understand the accessory’s appeal.

Her decision to pair the gloves with a coordinating clutch, as opposed to the rope belt from the runway, was wise as it suited the more formal nature of the event.

Thoughts?

Angela Bassett In Teresa Helbig – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Angela Bassett also joined the mix at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

I was immediately intrigued by this Teresa Helbig Spring 2017 sequin suit.

She was like an artful, walking mosaic—and she nailed the styling with her strong yet smart accessories including statement earrings, a snake motif Kilian clutch, and Le Silla sandals.

They complemented rather than competed with the colourfully engaging look.

She lost me a bit with the topknot, half-up component of her ’do, as I feel that is where the look stepped into slightly forced territory.

Would you agree?

Elizabeth Banks In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Elizabeth Banks shimmered and sashayed her way onto the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party scene on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

This Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture fringed frock was ready to party, and I loved it for that reason.

However, her updo didn’t match the sassy, shiny fun of the dress.

In fact, I found it be a bit mature for both her and the look—even if it did reflect a certain old-Hollywood, vintage sensibility.

Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ silver sandals were a seamless way to complete the ensemble.
