Last night’s 89th Academy Awards ceremony was definitely one to remember—and for a number of reasons. But after the broadcast had ended, our film favorites went on to celebrate amongst each other at Vanity Fair’s official after-party in Beverly Hills.
That, of course, just means that there was a whole other round of gorgeous couture gowns to ogle over (and, with the insane plot twist from the last five minutes, we assumed a little partying was much needed).
The after-party red carpet proved to boast looks just as beautiful and intricate as the ones we saw for the actual ceremony, not to mention much more daring. Many of those who were in attendance at the ceremony this year swapped out their look for yet another gown. The rest of our celebrity favorites—from actresses and supermodels to Olympian athletes—showed up to join the party dressed to the nines.
Below, we rounded up 13 of our favorite looks from last night’s celebration.
Just when we were finally done swooning over Janelle Monae’s incredible ceremony gown, she changed into this amazing Alexandre Vaulthier belted dress to attend the after-party.
