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

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 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.

Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Amy Adams In Oscar de la Renta - 2013 Vanity Fair PartyAfter debuting an extravagant Oscar de la Renta ball gown on the Academy Awards red carpet, Amy Adams changed into something a bit more manageable for the 2013 Vanity Fair Party at Sunset Tower in Hollywood.

While ‘The Master’ star didn’t win the Best Supporting Actress nod, she still brought another Oscar to the Vanity Fair party, as she wore a dress from de la Renta’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Following last night’s metallic trend, she was dripping in silver with this caviar-beaded fringe gown, which was paired with diamond drop earrings and a bracelet.

With the flapper flair of this look, it would have been expected for Amy to wear her hair in a retro pin curl. But she kept her her auburn locks sleekly swept back into a simple updo, similar to what we saw earlier in the evening.

Anne Hathaway In Saint Laurent – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Anne Hathaway in Saint Laurent - 2013 Vanity Fair PartyAfter a rather perky appearance in a surprising baby-pink Prada gown on the Academy Awards red carpet, Anne Hathaway changed into another dress for Graydon Carter’s 2013 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at the Sunset Tower in Los Angeles, California yesterday evening.

Her second look was another column gown, this time a custom design from Saint Laurent with a metallic sequin triangular neckline. I’m glad she didn’t try to wear another necklace here.

But the shapeless silhouette and dove grey colour had me yawning; that is, until the ‘Les Miserables’ star cracked her infectious wide smile, which was glossed in a pretty pink hue, as she posed with her proudest new gold accessory.

I really wanted to love Anne’s fashion on her big night. Unfortunately, her looks weren’t quite as triumphant as her Best Supporting Actress win.

Bella Heathcote In Chanel Couture – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Bella Heathcote In Chanel Couture - 2013 Vanity Fair PartyBella Heathcote took Chanel out for a second spin in as many days, as she attended the 2013 Vanity Fair Party, hosted at West Hollywood’s Sunset Tower last night.

After her first floral dress, the Australian actress plucked another nature-inspired cocktail frock, this time from Chanel’s Spring 2013 Couture collection. She took all the sweet elements from the runway and left off the more sinister details seen on the model.

That means the whimsical butterfly brooch stayed put. But she skipped the silver space-age gloves and high boots, the gothic organza eyelashes and that feathered topper.

Instead, she added some delightful sparkle with a metallic clutch, Jimmy Choo ‘Tease’ sandals and Chanel fine jewels.

The off-the-shoulder cape collar and A-line silhouette was charming in this demure, vintage-inspired dress.

Bella’s feminine rose-toned makeup and her old Hollywood updo with a side-swept bang completed the retro vibe.

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior – 2013 Vanity Fair Party

Natalie Portman In Christian Dior - 2013 Vanity Fair PartyNatalie Portman was the picture of grace, as she attended the 2013 Vanity Fair Oscars Party with her husband, Benjamin Millepied, at the Sunset Tower in Hollywood, California.

The face for Miss Dior Cherie perfume, she naturally donned a Christian Dior design last night. And she wore it well.

The gown’s empire waist gave way to a long, flowing skirt that fell to the floor, elongating her petite frame. The black sash that sliced through the left side of this gown was a modern flourish to edge up the sweet silhouette.

Emerald green earrings by Anna Hu cut through this monochromatic moment, and I loved them for that.

WIth a sleek, side-parted updo and a petal-pink lip, the actress and former Academy Award winner looked every bit the effortless star.
