    We already showed you our best dressed list at the 2014 Academy Awards, but c'mon! Everybody knows that the outfits that walk the red carpet at the ceremony itself are only half the story. 

    The other half? The parties, obviously. Whether they swapped their floor-length formal pieces for something different (Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o), or cranked up the Old Hollywood factor in slinky, plunging gowns (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Selena Gomez), the dresses at the Oscar after parties rivaled the ones at the show.

    It was impossible to pick a favorite, so we've rounded up the 38 prettiest looks below. Seriously, they were all that good.
