50. Miss: Kate Hudson

Kate Hudson missed the mark with her after-party look for the 2020 Oscars. While we love the shape and fit of this dress, the light greenish-yellow color wasn’t the most complimentary for her skin tone or hair color.

49. Hit: Diane Kruger

Diane Kruger looked stunning at the Vanity Fair After Party where she rocked a floor-length silver metallic gown. The number fit her like a glove and had the most gorgeous accordion detailing on the shoulder.

48. Miss: Emily Ratajkowski

Emily Ratajkowski opted for a white two-piece set for the Vanity Fair after-party. While we’re typically fans of chic two-piece sets, this one felt a little too unproportionate and would have been much more flattering with a high-waisted skirt.

47. Hit: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley dazzled in this black sculptural dress she wore to the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. Her entire ensemble oozed glamor with the combination of the dramatic neckline, sleek hair and red lip.

46. Miss: Heidi Klum

Heidi Klum stepped out at the Vanity Fair after-party wearing a slinky sequined dress we weren’t the biggest fans of. The dress seemed a little too small for her and this in combination with her messy hair made the entire look feel a little off.

45. Hit: Cynthia Erivo

Cynthia Erivo stole the show in this dramatic after-party look for the Vanity Fair party. We love the unique combination of lilac and aqua blue which is one you don’t see often on the red carpet.

Press Association

44. Miss: Catherine O’Hara

Catherine O’Hara missed the mark with her 2020 Oscars after-party look. This dress felt a little too busy with all the sparkles, colors and the intense striped pattern.

Press Association

43. Hit: Regina King

Regina King dazzled at the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party where she opted for a sparkling powder blue dress. We absolutely love the contrast of the black hemlines and the soft blue color. The glittering beading also added a glitzy 3-dimensional element.

42. Miss: Kerry Washington

We have to admit we weren’t the biggest fans of this look worn by Kerry Washington at the 2020 Oscars’ after party. This look had a little too much going on which made it feel chaotic with the heavy beading, bold colors and intricate designs.

41. Hit: Laura Dern

Laura Dern looked chic and sophisticated for this year’s Oscars’ after-party where she rocked a black cutout dress. We love that she layered her look with a pink iridescent blazer which added a pop of color and uniqueness to her look.

40. Miss: Olivia Wilde

Olivia Wilde opted for a black dress for the 2020 Vanity Fair party that we have to admit felt a little underwhelming. The shape wasn’t the most flattering and there was no unique detailing to make it stand out.

39. Hit: Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen glowed at the Vanity Fair after-party where she rocked an aqua-colored dress with pretty beaded detailing and sheer tulle on the skirt. This color was so flattering against her sunkissed complexion and the sleek bun was the perfect hair choice to allow the dress to shine.

Press Association

38. Miss: Joey King

Joey King missed the mark with this sculptural number she wore for the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. The look was a little too experimental for the event and the color wasn’t the most flattering to highlight her complexion and brunette tresses.

37. Hit: Florence Pugh

Florence Pugh had all eyes on her when she stepped onto the Vanity Fair red carpet wearing this glitzy metallic number. We love the column-style shape of this dress and all the unique beading involved in the design of the skirt.

Press Association

36. Miss: Leslie Mann

We admittedly weren’t the biggest fans of this after-party look worn by Leslie Mann. The harsh contrast of the iridescent purple and green seemed to clash and weren’t the most complimentary colors.

35. Hit: Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron looked so elegant at the 2020 Oscars’ after-party wearing this gold fringe number. Theron’s tall, slender build can pull off tiered fringe like this flawlessly!

34. Miss: Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish missed the mark with her look for the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. The combination of the oversized Gucci top, pants and gloves seemed over the top. We also didn’t love the fact that she wore sunglasses while walking the red carpet which hid her face.

33. Hit: Katharine McPhee

Katharine McPhee looked so classy at the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party where she rocked this muted purple gown. We love the slightly poofed sleeves and glitzy cutout on the side of the bodice.

32. Miss: Joan Smalls

Joan Smalls wore a two-tone blue look for the 2020 Vanity Fair party that we admittedly weren’t the biggest fans of. The oversized ruffles and sequined bodice made for an odd combination.

31. Hit: Madelaine Petsch

Madelaine Petsch was a total bombshell at the 2020 Oscars’ after-party where she rocked this emerald velvet dress with floral embellishment. We love the glamorous cape detail on this look and how flattering this shade of green compliments Petch’s red tresses.

30. Miss: Suki Waterhouse

Suki Waterhouse missed the mark with her look for the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party. This look had too many contrasting details in our opinion including the mint green bra-top, ruffled skirt, and sheer geometric bodice.

29. Hit: Rebel Wilson

Rebel Wilson channeled classic Hollywood with her pink off-the-shoulder look for the Vanity Fair party. We love the ruffled sleeves with this look and how she wore her hair in glam finger waves.

28. Miss: Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul had an unfortunate fashion miss at the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party where she opted for a mint green gown. This look had a lot of details competing for attention from the sheer bodice to the peacock feather on the belt.

Press Association

27. Hit: Adriana Lima

Adriana Lima dazzled at the 2020 Vanity Fair party where she rocked this white glamorous dress. We absolutely love the glitzy tights she wore on one leg which was a fun detail we’ve never seen before.

Press Association

26. Miss: Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross opted for a gold beaded look for the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. While we love all the detail on this dress, it simply felt a little heavy and overwhelming with the dramatic beading and full cape combined together.

Press Association

25. Hit: Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba looked stunning at the 2020 Oscars’ after-party where she rocked this nude and silver dress. It hugged her figure flawlessly and had the perfect amount of glitz.

Press Association

24. Miss: Hailee Steinfeld

We didn’t love the look Hailee Steinfeld wore for the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. The net pattern of the dress seemed a little odd in combination with sparkle beading.

Press Association

23. Hit: Olivia Munn

Olivia Munn wore a gorgeous one-shoulder black number for the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. We love all the buckle detailing on this dress which was something totally unique and different in comparison to some of the other typical sequin looks.

Press Association

22. Miss: Rachel Brosnahan

Rachel Brosnahan opted for a black sparkling number with a tiered skirt for the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. We have to admit we didn’t love some of the details involved with this look including the cartoon-looking bow on the chest, especially combined with the ruffles on the skirt.

21. Hit: Tessa Thompson

Tessa Thompson looked stunning in this unique mint green dress with buckle detailing at the Vanity Fair party. The black piping was an edgy contrast against the soft green color which was refreshing and unique.

Press Association

20. Miss: Taylor Hill

Taylor Hill opted for a bold printed look for the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party. While we actually don’t mind the dress itself, we have to admit we weren’t the biggest fans of her bouffant hairstyle and heavy eye makeup.

Press Association

19. Hit: Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara was a total bombshell at the 2020 Vanity Fair party where she walked the red carpet wearing this black mermaid-style dress. We absolutely love the flattering shape of this dress and the glitzy bustier top.

Press Association

18. Miss: Lili Reinhart

Lili Reinhart missed the mark with this voluminous pastel number she wore to the Vanity Fair after-party. This dress totally overwhelmed her with the oversized sleeves and bold floral pattern.

Press Association

17. Hit: Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts looked chic and classy in this black body-hugging dress she wore to the Oscars’ after-party. We love the soft ruffle on the bustline and the brooch on the waist added the perfect pop of sparkle.

Press Association

16. Miss: Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon is an absolute beauty, but we weren’t wowed by her after-party look for the Oscars this year. The minidress seemed much better suited for a cocktail party than the formal Vanity Fair party.

Press Association

15. Hit: Alicia Silverstone

Alicia Silverstone opted for a charcoal grey dress at the 2020 Oscars’ after-party this year. This cool-tone grey color worked beautifully to highlight her blue eyes and we love the sultriness of the glittering fringe.

Press Association

14. Miss: Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union missed the mark at the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party where she rocked this white embellished dress. The look featured a three-dimensional floral print that seemed to overwhelm her figure.

Press Association

13. Hit: Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens dazzled at the Vanity Fair party where she rocked this royal purple silk gown. We love the fun cape detail with this look that added the perfect amount of glamor and drama.

Press Association

12. Miss: Camila Mendes

We were not impressed by this look Camila Mendes wore to the 2020 Vanity Fair party. This dress had way too much going on and the contrasting patterns were undeniably questionable.

Press Association

11. Hit: Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale opted for a glittering red dress for the 2020 Vanity Fair party. She looked stunning in this halter-style dress and we love the unique beading laced throughout.

Press Association

10. Miss: Sarah Paulson

We didn’t love this look Sarah Paulson wore to the 2020 after-party. The look featured a sharp Peter Pan collar, heavy sequins, and feathers on the hemlines which didn’t flow together well.

Press Association

9. Hit: Candice Swanepoel

Candice Swanepoel made jaws drop with this sparkling blue look she wore to the Vanity Fair after-party. The shape of this dress screams glamor and the color worked perfectly to compliment her blue eyes and blonde hair.

Press Association

8. Miss: Sandra Oh

We admittedly weren’t the biggest fans of this look worn by Sandra Oh at the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. The feathers on the shoulders seemed a little excessive, especially considering the dress was made of head-to-toe sequins.

7. Hit: Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson looked stunning in this champagne-colored dress she wore to the 2020 Vanity Fair party. We love the cutout detail and the unique one-shoulder sleeve.

6. Miss: Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek missed the mark with this blue sequined dress she wore to the after-party. The dress hit at an awkward length which made her appear shorter than she actually is.

Press Association

5. Hit: Shay Mitchell

Shay Mitchell was a total bombshell at the 2020 Vanity Fair after-party. We love the shape of this wispy white dress and the slightly sheer material felt glitzy and sultry at the same time.

Press Association

4. Miss: Sophia Bush

Sophia Bush opted for a white suit with gold medallions embellished on it that we were quite disappointed by. Bush is such a natural beauty but this look did not do her justice!

Press Association

3. Hit: Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner showed off her unbelievable hourglass figure at the 2020 Vanity Fair party where she rocked this navy sequin dress. We love the swooping sculptural detail on this dress which made it feel super unique and different.

2. Miss: Kim Kardashian

We admittedly weren’t huge fans of this look Kim Kardashian wore to the 2020 Oscars’ after-party. The material of this look felt tacky and stringy rather than the luxe fabrics we’re used to seeing her rock.

Press Association

1. Hit: Hailey Bieber

Hailey Bieber had one of the most show-stopping looks of the evening at the 2020 Oscars’ Vanity Fair after-party. We love the lingerie-inspired feel of this look but it was still sophisticated and classy with the full-length skirt and high neckline.
