After all the big dresses on the Oscars 2016 red carpet, Hollywood's A-listers swapped frocks for a succession of glamorous after-parties.

Jennifer Lawrence traded Dior for Alexander Wang, Rachel McAdams ditched her backless green dress for a similar one in pink, while Kate Hudson slipped into metallic Maria Lucia Hohan.

Of course, some shunned the extravagance (or indeed the hassle) of peeling off one corsetted creation and shimmying into another after exiting the Dolby Theatre - if we were Jennifer Garner, we'd never take that dramatic Atelier Versace gown off either.
