2018 Oscars After-Parties, Part 2

Let’s keep the party going.

Best Dressed: LUPITA NYONG’O

Oh, did you think Lupita was only Best Dressed at the Oscars? What, you expected her to not slay every bit as hard at the even-more-star-studded after-parties? HAVE YOU EVER EVEN SEEN HER?

She is just serving looks on a completely different level than anyone else. There is no comparison.

Runner-Up: EMMA ROBERTS
gown and stole by Prada

I couldn’t believe how much I loved this. The fur stole and sequins give me subtle disco vibes, but the color and cut are incredibly fresh. The embellished straps are a great touch, and Emma’s hair and makeup have never looked better.

Honorable Mention: TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
gown by Balmain, purse by Judith Leiber, shoes by Roger Vivier

Weird and wonderful: the Tracee Ellis Ross story.

ALLISON JANNEY

I dig the button-down/fancy skirt combo. A strong follow-up to the perfection she served up earlier in the evening.

LIAM HEMSWORTH and MILEY CYRUS
gown by Moschino

I predicted Margot Robbie would wear this fresh-off-the-runways Moschino gown, but it’s undeniably a perfect choice for Miley. A great mix of her new grown-up aesthetic and her wild child vibes of the extremely distant past.

MILEY CYRUS

Of course Miley went to two Oscars parties. And honestly, I love that she wore split-down-the-middle mixed-fabric gowns to both. At first glance, they’re pretty different looks, but that detail pulls them together. This one is a little less interesting and unique than her Moschino gown, but she still looks excellent.

BETTY GABRIEL
gown by Pamella Roland

I’d have kept the fringey parts, but lost the sheer sleeves. And maybe lifted the bustline up an inch, just because the proportions are a little off. But this is a heavenly gown. The detailing is exquisite.

This could have veered toward basic, but the matching lips and nails, paired with the chic blunt bob, really made this dress pop.

TIFFANY HADDISH
gown by Brandon Maxwell, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Nobody on this earth is having more fun than Tiffany Haddish.

RITA ORA
gown by Zuhair Murad, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, shoes by Olgana Paris

It’s a lot, but Rita Ora never met an over-the-top gown she didn’t love. At least it’s relatively modern, the fit is gorgeous, and the hair is awesome.

KAROLINA KURKOVA
suit by Balmain

Not my preferred lady-pants ensemble of the evening, but I’ll take it.

KATE BOSWORTH
gown by Christian Dior, jewelry by Piaget, purse by Jimmy Choo

It’s accessorized magnificently – the necklace and purse are particular strokes of genius – but the dress itself isn’t all that remarkable.

EMILY RATAJKOWSKI
gown by Zac Posen

Great color, but the undone hair doesn’t really work with such a structured, corseted gown.

SIENNA MILLER
gown by Miu Miu, earrings by Messika, purse by Jimmy Choo

It has a delicate, ethereal beauty that I want to love, but something’s missing from this look for me.

EMMA STONE
dress and shoes by Louis Vuitton

What is your deal lately, Emma? You used to be a reliable red carpet commodity – maybe not perfect, but always putting in the effort. This is fine for a movie premiere, but it lacks the magic that Oscars night demands.

AMY ADAMS
gown by Christian Siriano, jewelry by Cartier

Photo: John Shearer/Getty

Killer fit, phenomenal jewels, but the dress isn’t memorable.

KERRY WASHINGTON
dress by Alexandre Vauthier, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, boots by Casadei

This is kind of a mess.

ISLA FISHER
gown by Alex Perry, purse by Swarovski

I really hate the way that shoulder piece just sort of… ends. And the turquoise jewelry was a terrible choice.

JARED LETO
jacket, shirt, and pants by Gucci

Okay, I know I’m always begging men to take more risks on the red carpet. But Jared Leto has made the full transition into Russell Brand character, and I just hate it.

ADRIANA LIMA
gown by Georges Hobeika, jewelry by Chopard, shoes by Rene Caovilla

The only dress any model seems to own anymore.

ELIZABETH BANKS
dress by Ralph & Russo, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz, purse by Roger Vivier, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Photo: Dia Dipasupil/Getty

The proportions are weird. The fabric looks like cheap tinsel. Ugh, remember the Hunger Games press tours, when Elizabeth turned out look after incredible look? I miss those days.

NINA DOBREV
gown by Valentino

Why are you wearing a bib?

CIARA
gown by Alexandre Vauthier, shoes by Brian Atwood

I respect the attempt, but no.

Worst Dressed: JULIANNE HOUGH
gown by MaxMara, necklace by Lorraine Schwartz, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Ah, the look we all aspire to: a cheap nightie and a necklace from an old Madonna video.
