The 94th Academy Awards was one for the books. The red carpet and Oscars after party looked great and the stars were happy to be back on the beat after a disappointing awards show last year. Everything was going swimmingly until a stunning (supposedly unscripted) exchange between Chris Rock and Will Smith shook the audience. Great for ratings, perhaps, but with so much violence facing the nation, it is not what is needed to see from stars that many people admire.
It’s a good thing there was something to look forward to after that tense moment, the Vanity Fair Oscars Party at the Wallis Annenberg Center in Beverly Hills. In many ways, the stars took more style risks than on the red carpet.
Jessica Chastain stunned again; this time in a green Gucci draped gown. Style renegade and possible punk performance artist, Julia Fox, wore an all-leather gown with a claw clutching her neck. Fox of course paired it with her iconic cat eye makeup. Men’s fashion trailblazer, Timothée Chalamet, wore an all black denim and leather biker jacket and jeans.
The host of the night, Vanity Fair Editor-in-Chief, Radhika Jones, wore an all natural aloe linen red gown by Gabriela Hearst. Anya Taylor-Joy (read our exclusive interview with her rocker boyfriend) wore a black transparent Dior dress and Jeremy O. Harris looked dapper in a floral Gucci suit.
