Any after-party is essentially the place where people can loosen up, kick back, and not feel the pressure of, ya know, winning or not winning one the most coveted awards in film. But, Oscar night after-parties are also the time we get to see all of the celebrities who didn't walk the red carpet earlier. And, even more exciting, those celebs wear designs that are way more boundary-pushing than the looks they wore to the ceremony. In other words, it was the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party where the fashion got a bit weirder, and in the coolest way possible.
For us, weird can mean a number of things: a quirky layering combination, a busy print, an unexpected accessory, or even a creative way to show skin — sometimes a lot of skin. It's the ability to create outfits that are out-of-the-box, spark conversations beyond Ooh, so pretty!, and are sometimes so weird, they work. Ahead we've rounded up 20 such examples from last night. Click on for our favorite bold moments from the one red carpet that gave Oscar a run for its money.
