Fan Bingbing In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Fan Bingbing In Oscar de la Renta - 2013 Vanity Fair Party I immediately thought of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s striped entrance at the Chanel Pre-Oscar Dinner when I saw Fan Bingbing showing her own stripes at the 2013 Vanity Fair Party, hosted Sunday night at the Sunset Tower in California.

For the after-party circuit, the Asian actress swapped her Marchesa magenta ball gown, worn on the Oscars red carpet, for monochrome. But she wasn’t afraid to still go big with this voluminous dress from Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2013 collection.

On the model, I liked this linear moment, especially since stripes (even those of the zebra variety) are so on trend right now.

On Fan, it was missing the wow factor I wanted. Without the runway’s bold statement necklace, this look came off as a bit one-dimensional.

A bold lip colour or a less structured hairstyle could have helped the situation.

Juliette Lewis In Vionnet – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Juliette Lewis In Vionnet - 2013 Vanity Fair PartyJuliette Lewis attended the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars party, hosted by editor Graydon Carter, on Sunday night.

The actress entered Hollywood’s Sunset Tower in a cream-coloured halter gown by Vionnet.

There was a lot going on with this dress—from the draped wrap skirt that revealed black and neon yellow layers on the side to the nipped-in waist that was tied up with a bow. And who could miss the whimsical fringe of dandelion-like embellishment that floated all across the dress.

Adding to the quirk factor was Juliette’s crimson hair, which was coaxed back into a side ‘do. I’m now wondering if this hair colour is what is bothering me about this look.

One thing’s certain, the dress was a departure from the glitz and glam in many others seen at the after parties.

Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli Couture – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Diane Kruger In Giambattista Valli Couture - 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Never one to shy away from taking a fashion risk or two on the red carpet, Diane Kruger opted for a very unique look at the 2013 Vanity Fair Party, held at Sunset Tower on Sunday evening.

The German actress wore a Giambattisa Valli Spring 2013 Couture dress.

Her caped long-sleeve white dress with black velvet beading and asymmetrical hemline is yet another tricky look which Diane pulls off with ease.

Keeping her look simple she styled her hair in a center parted bun with a neutral makeup.

Faberge jewels, Christian Louboutin ‘Paulina’ white pumps with a black trim and Roger Vivier Boite de Nuit gold and black metal clutch accessorized her look.

Was this an fashion-forward risk that paid off, or does this look not work for you?

Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Jennifer Lawrence In Calvin Klein - 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Aside from her Oscar win, Jennifer Lawrence’s other silver lining at the 2013 Academy Awards might just have been her dazzling Vanity Fair party gown, which was glimpsed at Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, California.

After experiencing every starlet’s worst nightmare—falling on Hollywood’s biggest night—the ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actress exchanged her voluminous Dior ball gown for a custom Calvin Klein dress that was easier to walk in.

This body-con, glittery gunmetal creation was completely out of character for the unembellished, plain-Jane Jennifer we’ve seen lately. And it was marvelous just for that reason.

In particular, I’m applauding the sculpted bodice and the straps; a genius new direction from that same-old strapless silhouette.

It doesn’t hurt that this liquid metallic look matched her Oscar perfectly.

Stacks of bronze, gem-encrusted bangles and a pair of matching drop earrings topped off the ensemble.

Did Jennifer win you over with her shiny new style on Sunday night?

Solange Knowles In Emilio Pucci – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Solange Knowles In Emilio Pucci - 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Sporting a vivid hue, Solange Knowles would’ve been hard to miss on the red carpet at the Sunset Tower where the 2013 Vanity Fair Party was hosted on Sunday evening.

The singer wore an Emilio Pucci beaded gown with a mesh halterneck in her favourite colour – yellow.

Having worn this colour several times before, she knew this look would be complementary with her skin-tone, but it’s the styling which perfects the look for me.

Lorraine Schwartz yellow-gold and diamond bracelets plus Lorraine Schwartz and OFIRA rings and a gold clutch added even more drama to her look.

We seen Solange rock many forms of her trademark fro’. On this occasion it was more voluminous than ever.

Ginnifer Goodwin In Monique Lhuillier – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Ginnifer Goodwin joined a host of beautiful stars who took to the red carpet for the 2013 Vanity Fair Party on Sunday evening, held at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood, California.

Sporting sultry smoky eyes, the actress wore a Monique Lhuiller Spring 2013 dress.

Her ocean-blue pearlized shell structured dress was styled with black Jimmy Choo ‘Deny’ sandals and a gold bracelet.

While Ginnfer’s pose feels quite stiff and awkward (but’s what’s new?), I love both the colour and the fresh youthful feel of this look.

In a sea of gowns, she was a breath of fresh air.

Rose Byrne In Lanvin – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Rose Byrne In Lanvin - 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Rose Byrne was a vision in white, as she joined a chic set at the 2013 Vanity Fair Party last night, held at Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, California.

She stepped out in a bodysuit and skirt from Lanvin’s Spring 2013 collection.

At first glance, this may seem like a safe choice. But with just the slight side turn, this ensemble went from innocently white to white-hot, as the daring splice of that backless, barely-there bodysuit was revealed.

The simple wrap skirt, which was a stark contrast to the runway’s navy version and metallic belt, brought another layer of hidden seduction with the slit up the front.

With the help of designer Alber Elbaz, Rose shows us here that elegance can be edgy, and sophisticated can be sexy.

Perfectly placed Chanel jewels, including a stunning pendant earring and bangle, dressed up this ensemble even more. I don’t even mind the white platform pumps on this occasion.

I also loved her loose, effortless waves and the punch of that fuchsia lippie.

A Swarovski clutch completed her look.
