8 Oscars After-Party Looks that Were Even Better than Their Red Carpet Counterparts

The Oscars were a night to remember as far as fashion goes. There was Margot Robbie in Chanel, Brie Larson in Celine, Renée Zellweger in Armani Privé and Natalie Portman in Dior. But what about the stars who followed up their red carpet walk with a little let-your-hair-down after-party? Here, eight celebs whose Vanity Fair after-party looks were even better than their main event looks.

1. Charlize Theron

The Bombshell star kicked things off in a black Dior Couture number with Tiffany and Co. jewelry, then upped the ante in another Dior ensemble complete with tassels and mega-watt shine.

2. Cynthia Erivo

The Harriet star stunned in two Atelier Versace looks, first at the 92nd Academy Awards, then at the Vanity Fair after-party. All we can say is wow.

3. Greta Gerwig

The Little Women director swapped out her dark chartreuse Dior gown for a flirty LBD from the fashion house after the statuettes were passed out. 


4. Billy Porter

The Pose star brought his A-game to the red carpet in a fiery Giles Deacon number and then made a total My Fair Lady 180 in Christian Siriano at Hollywood’s hottest after-party.

5. Chrissy Metz

The This Is Us star looked like Rapunzel in two colorful Christian Siriano gowns. We’re loving those long locks and jewel tones.

6. Regina King

King brought the house down in two very different Atelier Versace numbers and we’re totally swooning. 


7. Scarlett Johansson

The Marriage Story star looked resplendent in a pair of gold Oscar De La Renta gowns that were, dare we say, Oscar-inspired.


8. Gal Gadot

The Wonder Woman star erred on the side of frilly on the red carpet, but went tuxedo-sleek at the after-party. The catch? Both looks are Givenchy Haute Couture.

Oh, what a night for fashion.
