There was a great show after the show, with lovely ladies and dapper gents!

When you thought we covered all the red carpet outfits of the season, here comes the after party! And not any after party, but the Vanity Fair annual bash. I’m sure you have already seen the great annual portrait gallery by Marc Seliger (here) but I want to take you on a journey on the event’s red carpet.

Even more celebrities (including models, TV hosts & singers) attended the party and put on a great display of evening wear. Most of them were pretty successful, so you’ll see a very large selection of outfits I really liked. I appreciate the use of color and that many ladies were brave enough to step away from the general evening wear cut. There were of course some over the top and out of place outfits, but we can clearly overlook them. I love the daring ladies going for pants suits for the evening and I think Emma Stone’s post Oscars outfit was quite disappointing. Several pregnant ladies looking sharp, sending a great message to all the yummy mummies out there.

And now, for my absolute favorites of the evening, please see:

  • Kate Bosworth’s long ballerina dress – with her slim figure and pale complexion looked demure and breathtaking
  • Jessica Biel who also made the Oscar’s cut here on HB and now looked like a modern goddess
  • Joan Smalls who was exquisite in her deep blue, multi cut dress
  • Nina Dobrev in the much acclaimed and Instagramed Dior number, which actually looks great on a real person as well

Here is the extended gallery below and I love yo get your thoughts on the looks!
