We all know that when it comes to dressing for the Oscars, everyone takes it very seriously. They put on a tux or fancy gown that definitely didn’t come with a check attached to the garment bag. Most of the time the result is a one-way ticket to Zzzzzz town (see: a good 75% of the looks from last night). But then everyone gets to let loose at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar afterparty and put on what they really want to wear (see: The Gold Standard). Like many people at the Vanity Fair party, Diane Kruger wasn’t at the Oscars and she showed up wearing that.
Diane is wearing a dress by Alexandre Vauthier, but it looks more like a homemade version of the ASOS bow dress made from an old sateen runner taken from the head table of her sister’s winter-themed wedding. And it’s perfect – that is the dress you wear when you really want people to think you’re single.
Gabrielle Union arrived wearing a similar sort of arbitrarily-wrapped fabric ensemble by Jean Paul Gaultier. Gabrielle clearly couldn’t decide between a dress and a bikini, and was like “Can you do a half-and-half?”
Kate Beckinsale’s dress came with two sea urchins. That’s the kind of dress you wear to a party and not an award show. Nobody wants to be crammed into a tiny seat and have to feel itchy tulle scratching into their shoulder for over four hours.
I would have thought that Jared Leto would have boycotted Oscars night after the Academy failed to recognize his commitment to method acting as The Joker in Suicide Squad. But he went to the Vanity Fair party, and he looked like a hipster clown’s coke dealer.
He also sort of looks like Scott Disick going through a Canadian phase.
Here’s more from Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar after-party.
