This past Sunday the 96th Academy Awards (Oscars) took place. The night was a gathering of the biggest stars in Hollywood and celebrated some of the best films including ‘Oppenheimer’, ‘Poor Things’, ‘Anatomy of a Fall’, ‘Barbie’,’American Fiction’ and more.

The night didn’t end when the award ceremony did though, in fact it was only the beginning. The Oscars red carpet was all about glamour and class, but the rules of fashion went out the window for the after parties. This year there were two official after parties hosted by Vanity Fair and the Elton John Aids Foundations respectively. Practically of Hollywood attended the after parties including dozens of celebrities that weren’t even at the actual award show. Some celebrities nailed their after party looks by pushing the envelope while others nailed their looks by following current trends. Here are my favorite looks from the 2024 Oscars After Parties:

Many fans of Margot were upset when The Academy “snubbed” her and did not nominate her for Best Actress, however one thing fans could all agree on is that she nailed her after party look. She opted to wear a gold corset bodysuit complete with plenty of sparkles. The bodysuit is from the Mugler spring/summer 1996 collection. She accessorized the looks with simple strappy gold heels and a deep gold cape draped over her arms.

While the women definitely dominated the night in terms of fashion, there were also some men who deserved a place on the best dressed list. Any man who pushed the boundaries of men’s fashion and opts for something that isn’t a classic black suit or tuxedo deserves to be recognized. Here are the best dressed men at this year’s after parties: 


Lenny Kravitz 

 

 

If anyone is known for pushing the boundaries of men’s fashion and creating fashion trends, it’s Lenny Kravitz. For the after party he stuck with a perfectly tailored black jacket and matching black pants. Underneath the jacket he opted for a less than traditional white shirt that looked like something Prince would have worn. He added dramatic black sunglasses to the look in classic Lenny Kravitz style adding drama to the look. Overall the look combined his personal style, drama and classic styling making it perfect for the after party. 


Barry Keoghan 

 

 

It’s not often both halves of a celebrity couple make a best dressed list for the same event, but Barry Keoghan and his current girlfriend Sabrina Carpenter both did in this case. Barry wore black pants and white undershirt but the highlight of his look was the tweed jacket that resembled the men’s version of Channel’s classic tweed jackets. He accessorized the look with simple jewelry that elevated the overall look, including a handmade friendship bracelet with Sabrina’s name on it. Overall the look was daring and the jacket was a bold choice that paid off. 


Chris Evans 

 

 

While a men’s suit usually isn’t really pushing the boundaries of fashion, Chris Evans found a way to make his suit push the boundaries of fashion. He wore a typical men’s suit complete with a black tie but he pushed the boundaries by opting for bold red pants and a bold red jacket. The red color made him stand out and the bold move to choose a less than typical color was refreshing. 


Tan France 

 

 

Tan France is another men’s fashion icon and his after party look did not disappoint. He wore black pants paired with a gray jacket complete with a matching dramatic cape. His look was truly original and no one else wore anything that even came close to it. The dramatic cape added drama to the look, but the black pants and neutral gray color of the jacket kept the elegance of the look. Overall it was the perfect balance of elegance and drama 


Ncuti Gatwa

 

 

It was no surprise that one of the Kens from the ‘Barbie’ movie would also be one of the best dressed at the after party. Ncuti Gatwa wore a high neck silver chest-plate with black pants and his midriff peeking through. The look was a bold choice and definitely pushed the fashion envelope. He kept the pants and shoes sleek and classic while the chest-plate was a bold statement and a risky choice that definitely paid off. 

 

Overall the 96th annual Academy Awards were a night to remember, but it’s the fashion moments from the Vanity Fair After Party and the Elton John Aids Foundation After Party that we’re sure to never forget.
