WHO WORE WHAT? .....2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet

Hailee Steinfeld in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2017 at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted by Radhika Jones, Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Beverly Hills CA

As we all know, the actual Academy Awards wasn't the only "Red Carpet Game" in town on Sunday night. There were several major Oscar parties and therefore, many opportunities for stars and supermodels alike to don couture and get photographed. One of the most A-list Oscar parties was of course, the Vanity Fair bash...

Ready for a Party--(L to R) Lupita Nyong'o, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zendaya, Kendall jenner and Rita Ora--Vanity Fair 2018 Oscar Party, Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Beverly Hills

This year, it was "hosted" by Radhika Jones and held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills. Let's get to some of my FAVORITES from this fabulous party:
Kendall Jenner in Redemption--Supermodel Kendall Jenner utilized her best assets (her INCREDIBLE figure and THOSE loooooong legs!) by wearing this super short and superb sexy black dress with exaggerated tiered volant ruffles from Redemption, a French brand headed by designer Gabriele "Bebe" Moratti. I thought she looked AMAZING and I loved this dress: So 90's and so ON TREND!

Hailee Steinfeld in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2017--Hailee has become a total fashionista in the past several years--with the assistance of her power styling duo of Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haehn. I thought this was an impressive red carpet showing from Hailee in this gorgeous silk lace and tulle black and white gown from Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2017 collection. She looked ethereal, pretty and super chic!

Lily Aldridge in Gianni Versace Spring 2018--Lily wore this gold chainmail gown from Gianni Versace's 20th Anniversary collection for Spring 2018, shown last September. This particular dress is a recreation of one of Gianni Versace's most iconic gowns from Versace's Autumn/Winter 1994 Atelier Versace collection (lower photo). The style Lily wore was modeled at the Spring 2018 show by the one-and-only former First lady of France, Carla Bruni (top photo, left).

Lupita Nyong'o in Custom Armani Prive--Lupita changed from the gold-and-black chainmail-and-sequin Custom Atelier Versace gown that she wore at the Oscars to this black sequined number from Armani Prive custom-made for her. The black color with the sparkly Swarovski crystals made the gown look like a star-filled night sky on Lupita. The fit was perfection as well.

Martha Hunt in Marina Moscone Fall 2018--Victoria's Secret model Martha Hunt looked quite elegant in this tunic-and-pants ensemble from NY-based Maria Moscone and her Fall 2018 collection. I loved how effortless this look was and still perfectly suited for a red carpet party! I especially admired the neckline drape that mimicked a sporty tied sweater, albeit much more Haute!

Zendaya in Custom Michael Kors Collection--After wearing a chocolate brown off-the-shoulder Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown at the Oscars, the fabulous Zendaya went "Princess Pretty" with this blush/golden colored sequined Custom Michael Kors Collection mermaid-shaped gown. The dress was beautiful and of course, Zendaya looked oh-so-pretty in it. Now, if I had to choose which Zendaya I prefer, it would be the more stylish Oscars version.

Janelle Monae in Custom Christian Siriano--Janelle Monae is no wallflower when it comes to fashion and making a red carpet entrance. I loved this fun--if not a bit "costume'y" look custom-made for her by Christian Siriano. The designer dressed 17 starts on Oscars Sunday so he (and his team) were UBER busy! This lipstick red colored ensemble included a sweeping hi-lo overskirt, sequined epaulet jacket, pants, and white shirt with black bow tie. This is a look only Janelle Monae could pull off!

Zoey Kravitz in Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2018--Love, Love and Love! I know some of you might say "OMG! She looks like a puffball!"(I can just hear it now!) But Zoe looks so cute, and so chic in this black mini ensemble from the French fashion house of Saint Laurent and its newly-minted Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello. From the looks of it, it seems that they "customized" it for Kravitz by taking off the sleeves, making the pouf more...pouffy! well as adding ostrich feathers at the bottom.

Kerry Washington in Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2018 Ready-to-Wear--Kerry Washington showed up tot he Vanity Fair Oscar Party in this mini party dress from French designer Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2018 Read-to-Wear collection. The leather dress featured gorgeous side drapes and fuchsia-colored sequined side cascade volants. While I didn't mind the black thigh-high boots, I probably would have preferred her in super high strappy heels.

Jasmine Tookes in Jean-Louis Sabaji Couture Spring 2018--Victoria's secret Angel/Supermodel Jasmine Tookes wore this golden lame gown from Beirut Lebanon-based Jean-Louis Sabaji Couture Spring 2018 collection...and naturally she looked FLAWLESS. I mean, seriously, just look at her...that skin...that gold fabric effortlessly draped on her...Wow!

Rita Ora in Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2018--Rita Ora was serving you SEQUINED and FEATHERED COUTURE darlings in this strawberry red concoction from Lebanon-based designer Zuhair Murad Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2018 collection. You could tell Rita was feeling every bit a DIVA in this $100,000+ (she didn't pay for it, kids) costing gown. The design featured hand-sewn sequins and feathered trim, a high center front slit, plunging neckline and sleeves. Everything about it was superb!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Ralph & Russo Couture Spring/Summer 2018--I really loved this mint-colored gown worn by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The glittery sequin-and-silk chiffon gown was from UK brand Ralph & Russo Couture Spring/Summer 2018 collection. First, I am sure ANYTHING looks amazing on Rosie, let's just start there...but I did like the impact of the gown and almost "Pageant fab" effect. Some pageant brand needs to copy it and re-make it for a future Miss Universe. ASAP!

Gal Gadot in Custom Armani Prive--Gal wore this red sequined gown custom-made for her from Armani Prive. The dress was simple and classic, featuring a blouson waist and side front slit. It was very 70's Disco fab.

Joan Collins--Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you THE LEGEND...THE DIVA...Miss Joan Collins, in a blue sequined lace ensemble featuring a long skirt and fitted SUPER SHOULDERED jacket. I love the not-so-subtle homage to her "Dynasty" days and her now-iconic Nolan Miller shoulder padded looks. This really made my day! Bravo Miss Collins.

Mirai Nagasu and Adam Rippon--While Adam--wearing Moschino--did not change for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party (he wore this to the Oscars), Mirai did do a gown change from a blue colored Tadashi see-through gown to this blush/golden feathered concoction. Whether it was intentional or not, I kinda like the slight (or not so slight) hint of a "Swan Lake-like figure skating costume.

And more Figure Skating Red Carpet couple:
Maia and Alex Shibutani in Custom Ralph Lauren: So cute, so perfect! I really like the color blocked gold-and-black strapless dress worn by Maia. the geometric vertical seaming was smart in that it lengthens her petite body. And oh yes, Alex looked very sharp in his shawl collared tuxedo. They get the GOLD...for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party Red Carpet!
