The most stunning oscar moments happened at the after-party

A wise man once said “after the show, it’s the after-party,” which is exactly what had Hollywood’s biggest stars — some accompanied by their Oscars — flocking to the Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar Party on Sunday night (February 22). As it turns out, some of the night’s most glamorous moments took place after the red carpet wrapped up. (And presumablybefore the carbs were consumed.)

From Lady Gaga to Ansel Elgort, photographer Mark Seliger captured some of the most stunning images of the night in Vanity Fair’s Instagram portrait studio. Below, take a look at some of our favorites:

Lady Gaga

The hills are alive with Mother Monster’s fierceness.

Eddie Redmayne

He’s never letting Oscar out of his sight. Because, you know, he promised.

Rita Ora

Rita Ora may not have won the Oscar for Best Original Song, but she sure looked like a winner at the after-party.

J.K. Simmons

Looking dapper AF.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo

Did he just… fall asleep on her? Tbh, we’d bow down in Bahati’s presence too.

Ansel Elgort

Swooning forever.

Mindy Kaling

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson

Have you ever seen two people look so perfect together?

Sofia Vergara

The only thing that would have made this pic any more striking is if Vergara’s fiance Joe Manganiello was by her side. Honestly, we think our eyes would have melted from the overwhelming heat.

Natalie Portman and Rashida Jones

QUEENS.
