Models @ The Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Models stormed the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, with a range of head-turning looks—for better or worse.

Alessandra Ambrosio: The naked dress had another showing with this Ralph & Russo Couture embellished, sheer design, styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. There will be no doubt her body isn’t rocking, but I know eyes will be rolling at the complete transparency of the look.

Ashley Graham: This Rubin Singer gown featured a recognizable, slit-to-there silhouette, but it was the gleaming sheen that upped the ante. A swept-back hairstyle and Sophia Webster sandals completed the look.

Lily Aldridge: The golden-goddess look served Lily well in this Versace liquid-gold gown that had a certain chainmail effect. Christian Louboutin heels and Bvlgari jewels and bag finished her glamorously regal entrance.

2018 Oscars & Oscar Parties Menswear Roundup

Many of the men brought their A game to the 2018 Oscars and Oscars parties, including the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in California.

Chadwick Boseman: The ‘Black Panther’ star continued his reign of sartorial power in this Givenchy Haute Couture suit that was inspired by a full look in the Spring 2018 collection. However, I love how he made the long, embellished jacket his own—sleekly styling it with black shirting and trousers and the zipper-accented shoes.

Donald Glover: This Gucci tux such a handsome-luxe approach with the velvet jacket taking it to the next level in partnership with the relaxed-suave appeal of the slipper shoes. A David Yurman ring completed the look.

Tom Holland: Sometimes double-breasted jackets can come across as a bit contrived, but I love how Tom wore this Hermès suit so sharply. It was a standout on the Oscars red carpet with his Piaget watch adding that final touch.

2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet Roundup

The crush of beauties continued in full force on the red carpet of the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party last night (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California.

Odeya Rush: The young starlet was a vision in this neon-bright chartreuse Vivienne Westwood Couture gown. The sculptural, one-shoulder ruffle detail is nothing we haven’t seen before, but the bold colour made the look feel dynamic. I do think she could have offered up a more youthful beauty look—and less bronzer—to accompany the sophisticated sass of the gown.

Dree Hemingway: There was a delicate daintiness to this Valentino Pre-Fall 2018 nude, embellished lace gown, which Dree echoed in her minimal hair and makeup. The yellow-tinged, ribbon belt made all the difference in breathing a bit of life into the neutral dress, with Repossi jewels to complete the look.

Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party Red Carpet Roundup

There was no shortage of memorable looks at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California.

Karolina Kurkova: Look closely at the Czech model’s Balmain Pre-Fall 2018 suit as the fabric has a marvelous texture that’s flecked with sparkles on the collar. It might not have been the loudest look, but it was unique and nice to see another pants option.

Darby Stanchfield: The ‘Scandal’ actress celebrated floral and fauna with her Teresa Helbig gown. Unfortunately, there were too many opposing elements between the print, sequins, sharp neckline and the sparkling bag. I can see some saying it’s a lesser version of Gucci.

Petra Nemcova: The philanthropist and model struck a pose in a sunny Celia Kritharioti gown. It was a well-executed look with her waves echoing the ruffled shoulder detail. The red lipstick and high slit added allure to the cheerful fabric.

Ana de Armas In Dolce & Gabbana – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Ana de Armas was one of the lovely ladies at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California, along with Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyGal Gadot, Betty Gabriel and Abbie Cornish.

The Cuban actress brought a playful party spirit in a Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2018 gown.

She kept accessories to a minimum, allowing the shimmering berry dress to take on a feminine, vintage sentiment with the fitted waist and pleated skirt.

Given the rich embellishment on the fabric, I think she could have carried off the original version with the sheer skirt and still projected the same mood.

Of course, I’m sure many will prefer the version with the lining.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley In Ralph & Russo Couture – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley graced the red carpet at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, joining Gal Gadot, Betty Gabriel and Abbie Cornish.

The model looked like a goddess in a Ralph & Russo Spring 2018 Couture gown.

The wispy layers of mint green add ethereal softness to the structured, glistening strapless silhouette.

It’s the contrasting elements and unexpected draping that give the dress such dimension, but the overall feeling of the look is of romance and beauty.

Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals and soft hair and makeup completed the style.

Betty Gabriel In Pamella Roland – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

At the 2018 Oscars, I took issue with Betty Gabriel’s visible underwear killing what would have been a beautiful look. I’m afraid I’m experiencing a bit of déjà vu with her ensemble at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4).

When I first glanced at the ‘Get Out’ actress’s Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2018 gown, I was pleased to see the addition of the lining to negate the naked feel of the original.

The modification worked in her favour as it brought formality without completely obstructing the details on the gown.

Now, it’s the illusion panel on the neckline I’m struggling with. The sheer netting is too light against her skin and the thick seam ruins the floating effect of the shoulder embellishment.

I would have preferred to see the grayish tulle used on the neckline compared to this, although, a true skin tone netting match would have been preferred.

Gal Gadot In Armani Prive – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Gal Gadot delighted, first attending the 2018 Oscars on Sunday (March 4) then making her way to the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party where she joined Abbie Cornish, Allison Williams and Emily Blunt.

Shine was the theme of the night for the ‘Wonder Woman’ actress, with her stepping out in a sequined Armani Prive gown for the party.

Despite the glistening fabric and sensual cut, there is an ease to the ensemble that is evident in a number of her looks.

She didn’t overcook the outfit with dramatic accessories or makeup.

It still has a glamorous allure appropriate for the event, but she looks comfortable and carefree.

Abbie Cornish In Christian Siriano – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

After attending the 2018 Oscars, Abbie Cornish headed to the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California. She joined Zoe KravitzEmma Watson and Emily Blunt.

The ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ actress went from heavy embellishment to bold blooms in a Christian Siriano Spring 2018 ensemble.

Even though this is a full runway look, I enjoy that it’s separates, bringing a fresh silhouette to the mix of gowns.

Such a strong print on a voluminous skirt could have overwhelmed her, but the stark black long sleeves balance out the striking pattern.

The jewels might not have been necessary but they echo the flora on the dress while softening the austere nature of the bodice.

Angela Sarafyan In Celia Kritharioti – Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

Angela Sarafyan struck a pose at Elton John’s AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday (March 4) in West Hollywood, California, joining Sofia CarsonLea Michele and Karen Gillan.

Sequined gowns are to be expected during awards season, but the ‘Westworld’ actress’s Celia Kritharioti dress made me sit up and take notice.

The vivid tangerine shade was a unique colour choice, but it photographed splendidly, enlivening her complexion and playing off the berry earrings.

I’m of two minds in regards to the fabric bow. As a full look, the detail draws attention to her face and wraps up the look nicely. On the other hand, I am curious to see it in a lighter fabric.

Thoughts?

Emily Blunt In Alexander McQueen – 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

Emily Blunt was one of the many attendees at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Sunday (March 4) in Beverly Hills, California. She joined Zoe Kravitz, Emma Watson and Zendaya Coleman.

The ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ actress shone in an Alexander McQueen gown. The ornate style was bedecked with Art Nouveau flower and bird embroidery which was created with gold sequins and silver beaded outlines.

It was a change of pace from the ethereal Schiaparelli Couture dress she wore to the 2018 Oscars. It was decadent with the luxurious surface work playing off her blonde hair and jewellery.

Looking at it, you cannot tell whether it’s lined, partly lined or completely sheer, and that is exactly the type of illusion you want to create with a detailed piece such as this. It’s exquisite craftsmanship.
