On the Scene: The 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party with Naomie Harris in Calvin Klein By Appointment, Gabrielle Union in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture, Tracee Ellis Ross in Zuhair Murad, and More!

After the show, it’s the after party! First up came the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar celebration. Newly-minted Academy Award winners, presenters who made a quick change, and a slew of other iconic ladies and gents were in attendance.

Let’s get into the fête’s looks!

Naomie Harris donned her second Calvin Klein By Appointment number of the night. This time, she chose a one-shoulder gown that radiated goddess vibes to the max.

Gabrielle Union shut down the entire night in a black and electric blue Jean Paul Gaultier gown that showcased her toned physique.

Tracee Ellis Ross wore one of her best looks ever in a red embellished Zuhair Murad ball gown with a plunging neckline. She just keeps getting more and more fabulous.

Janelle Monae continued the slayage in a black Alexandre Vauthier Couture gown with a voluminous skirt, mesh bust and sleeves, grommet detailing, and a front slit. I thought she reached her peak on the red carpet, but this was even better!

Ciara was positively glowing in a curve-hugging Jovani Signature velvet gown that put her beautiful baby bump on display.

Kerry Washington shimmered in a long-sleeve, sequin Michael Kors Collection piece and a sleek bob. Couldn’t find a flaw.

Oscar winner Viola Davis was a vision in an all-white Brandon Maxwell suit. Flawless from head-to-toe!

Ruth Negga’s colorful strapless, sequin Oscar de la Renta gown with a high-low hemline couldn’t have been any more heavenly. Another reason why she’s one of my faves.

Thandie Newton brought the glitz and glamour in a plunging sequin Schiaparelli Couture dress with a sheer skirt, colorful shoulders, and a choker for added flair.

Rashida Jones was positively captivating in a navy, floral appliqué Prada gown.

We can always count on Zoe Kravitz to bring some edge to the evening and the dark romance of her Armani Privé gown was not to be overlooked. She never strays from her aesthetic and I love that!

Halle Berry slipped on her second Atelier Versace dress of the night, this time choosing a chainmail mini dress.

Décolletage was on the agenda for Mariah Carey who looked every bit the diva in a black and yellow printed Philipp Plein design.

Another stunning look from Ralph & Russo Couture! Jessica Alba channeled a retro ice princess in a delicate, pale blue ruffle gown from the brand.

Mindy Kaling was a floral dream in Naeem Khan. She’s never looked better!

Sofia Vergara flaunted her curves in a long-sleeve Michael Kors Collection gown. Hot!

Freida Pinto looked astonishing in a blue one-shoulder Elie Saab cutout gown with a thigh-high slit. This was perfection.

It doesn’t get much more refined than Olivia Munn’s red Giambattista Valli look.

Deepika Padukone posed alongside Christian Louboutin in a strapless, Monique Lhuillier gown with a gold sequin skirt. This was glamour done right!

Sarah Paulson went bold in a two-tone, black and yellow Ronald van der Kemp velvet gown. Certainly not for the faint of heart, but Sarah wore it effortlessly.

Kate Bosworth served up princess chic in a sage J.Mendel tulle ball gown. I loved the drama of this look!

Demi Lovato was ethereal in a wispy, lavender Monique Lhuillier piece. She totally knocked it out of the park with this one.

Kate Hudson was a total bombshell in a plunging Cavalli Couture gown with ruffle and sheer lace accents.

After seeing Nocturnal Animals, I’m even more obsessed with Amy Adams! Naturally, she wore Tom Ford for the evening, accented with Cindy Chao jewelry. Her long-sleeve silver, beaded gown with a plunging neckline was the definition of chic.

Mommy-to-be Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked every bit the supermodel in an Atelier Versace gown with draped shoulders, a crystal-embellished bust, and thigh-high slits. She never disappoints!

Reese Witherspoon flaunted her toned gams in a long-sleeve embellished Michael Kors Fall 2017 LBD which she shortened from the runway’s midi length. I liked the catwalk iteration a bit more, but it’s a stunning dress nonetheless.

The silhouette of Heidi Klum’s black feather Alberta Ferretti gown was absolutely breathtaking.

With her Oscar in tow, Emma Stone accented her on-trend Givenchy slip dress with a pearl-accented blazer. A fun look indeed, but lacking in a bit more glamour for me. But who cares? She won one of the world’s biggest honors!

Alessandra Ambrosio was another one of the night’s party hoppers, donning her second look of the evening from Ralph & Russo Couture. This stunner was an asymmetric corset design with another sexy slit.

The one-shoulder silhouette continued its reign on Diane Kruger, whose Alexandre Vauthier Couture mini dress was absolutely exquisite.

Nina Dobrev wore one of the most coveted looks of the year, clad in a sheer white Christian Dior tulle gown with the iconic French fashion house’s logo straps.

It was all about sustainability for Rooney Mara who chose a plissé ruffle H&M Conscious Collection LWD.

Though Brie Larson was only presenting for the night, she looked like a winner in an emerald Ralph & Russo Couture gown with a thigh-high slit. Hot!

I expected something provocative from Miranda Kerr, but she surprised me in a baby blue Miu Miu floral gown. This was refreshing.

Kate Beckinsale’s sheer embellished Zuhair Murad design with black tulle sleeves was tricky, but the actress executed it perfectly. Like a real fashion girl would.

Old Hollywood glamour with a modern edge was on the agenda for Lily Collins in Elie Saab Couture. Gorgeous!

Michelle Monaghan flaunted her toned abs in a black Brandon Maxwell cutout gown. I would’ve loved a sleek ponytail or chignon to showcase the dress’s shoulder cutouts, but it was a graceful look nonetheless.

Ralph & Russo had quite the night! Hailee Steinfeld was outfitted in a crystal-adorned, sheer halter Couture gown from the brand. So lovely!

Jennifer Aniston got to werk in a black sequin Atelier Versace gown with a plunging neckline and thigh-high slit.

Jessica Biel was dipped in gold for the second time last night, this time going for a bronze metallic and white Ralph Lauren cutout cape gown. Haven’t seen a dress this brilliant in ages!

Another one-shoulder silhouette! Karlie Kloss’s red Naeem Khan gown was simple in form, but sequins and her matching red lips took it to the next level.

Shanina Shaik added some color to her black, sheer panel Kaufmanfranco embellished gown with pink Lorraine Schwartz statement-making earrings and an eye-catching Devi Kroell clutch. I loved this!

Adriana Lima was luminescent in a gold embellished Elisabetta Franchi keyhole gown with a thigh-high slit.

The electric blue shade of Chanel Iman’s Zuhair Murad Couture gown made sure she wasn’t missed at the celebration.

Emily Ratajkowski sizzled in an embellished Jonathan Simkhai gown with a feather hem. It’s clear the designer has real red carpet chops!

Priyanka Chopra’s black Michael Kors Collection design was given that extra shimmer allover sequins.

I lived for Sia’s Giorgio Armani suit! Still unsure how she sees anything at all, but I can dig her commitment to metaphorically staying out of the public eye.

Kat Graham went bold in a colorful Renato Balestra Couture strapless dress. Instant mood-lifter!
