After an evening of anticipation, achievements, excitement, and the occasional yet prominent wardrobe malfunction, (Yes, that one’s for you, Anne Hathaway) what better way to end such an eventful night?
A gathering at the world-renowned Vanity Fair after-party, just a few feet from the entrance of the Sunset Tower Hotel was the perfect conclusion. Although the scene took on a luminous effect from the posse’ of photographers flashpoint cameras, none shown brighter than these radiant heavy hitters.
Young and rising actress Jennifer Lawrence walked the pin-stripe carpet in a Calvin Klein collection dress. I’m currently loving the gunmetal color of this strap dress; who can even pay attention to the Oscar she brought with her?
The lovely Jennifer Aniston also held her own in the trend department in an eye-catching Valentino gown in a shade of scarlet. The fit was absolutely perfect for Aniston’s shape, with a smart waist-line leading to nicely tapered drapery.
The age-defying Naomi Campbell strut her way into the affair in an indigo Ralph and Russo velvet dress. Both body-hugging and bold, this model shows her style is not the only thing getting better with age.
Double-treat Tony and Emmy winning actress Kristen Chenoweth gave the classic LBD a twist in a Giorgio Armani gown. The flowing off-white train at the nape of Chenoweth’s back was an unexpected surprise, but a good one to say the least.
Now not everyone attending the Vanity Fair after-party quite caught my eye, these stars style took an entirely different direction.
Even that vixen-like down-turned pout cant distract from the layer upon layer of mauve ruffles Rosie Huntington Whiteley is lost in. This Valentino number simply did not do it for me in the fashion department considering the mass amount of fabric used for this seemingly under-stated dress. Not a fan.
Although Jennifer Hudson‘s velvety smooth voice during her rendition of “And I Am Telling You” may have been spot on during the Oscars, her Roberto Cavalli dress took a miss. In all honestly, the dress itself is elegant enough, it’s the bright patent leather shoes Hudson chose to pair with it that threw off this ensemble altogether.
Actress Hillary Swank looks gorgeous per usual, it’s her lace-heavy Valentino dress that makes me feel a bit iffy about her appearance. It also looked a lot like the dress Sally Fields wore.
Not only does this pewter-colored Versace gown start to fade out the ex-Disney channel star, Selena Gomez, it does nothing to emphasize her stunning legs. I can appreciate the top half of the dress for its corseted bust fitting her waist-line perfectly, it is the bottom half of the full skirt that makes me not care for this look.
