Sequins, tuxedos and ball gowns: all the after-party action from the 2017 Oscars

In the immortal words of R. Kelly, after the show, it’s the after party – and when the show is the Oscars, the after party’s guaranteed to have some pretty stellar fashion moments. Hollywood’s biggest Oscars bashes are hosted by the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Vanity Fair, and both make for a visual feast if photos of pretty, pretty dresses are your thing.

Elton’s party actually kicks off before the Oscars begin, functioning as a viewing party for those stars not invited to the Academy Awards. (This isn’t necessarily a snub, by the way: no matter how much of an A-grade A-lister you are, the only way to be guaranteed a ticket to the ceremony is to be nominated for an award.)

Once the prize-giving is over, Elton’s event transforms into an after party, as the stars who were invited to the Oscars hot-foot it over to the Rocket Man’s place – usually squeezing in an outfit change en route.

Next, it’s on to the legendary Vanity Fair Oscars party (which, of course, requires yet another change of clothes). Housed in a custom-built space next to the Wallis Annenberg Centre and Beverly Hills City Hall in Los Angeles, the party draws attendees from across the celebrity world – from supermodels to musicians and Oscar winners past and present.
