Oscars After Parties 2018: Let’s Finish This Thing

Guys. This is it. This final post of awards season. It’s been a completely wild few months – from launching this thing soon after the Emmys, to closing out the busy season with the last two weeks of Oscars coverage. I’ve had a blast and want to thank each and every person who has stuck with me and kept reading!

And while awards season may be over, stay tuned for a lot of great stuff over the next few months. Next week we’ll be catching up with Will and Kate and Meghan and Harry who got up to all sorts of fun while I was busy blogging about awards season. Both Cannes and the Met Ball are coming up in May, as well as the terribly exciting Royal Wedding. So thanks for being here, and thanks for continuing to be here! xx

Mindy is looking FANTASTIC on her first big red carpet since giving birth to her new daughter, Katherine. She’s kept mum about who the father is, but I think we can all agree we hope it’s this guy:

Ava DuVernay Armani Privé

Ava might be my #StyleGoals. She tends to like sleeves, sparkles, and ball gown silhouettes. And I tend to like…everything she wears.

Those are the most opera-est of opera gloves. And this is all a bit too bumblebee.

I can’t see Elizabeth Banks on a red carpet without thinking about Avery Jessup, her “30 Rock” character:


She does look good…

Tracee Ellis Ross in Balmain

I just started watching “Black-ish” and highly recommend it. Tracee is an absolute delight. I don’t know if this is vintage, but it looks straight out of 1985.

Olivia Munn in Andrew Gn

I included a few gowns from this collection in my fantasy stylist post – and for good reason, it’s excellent. This is definitely a top 3 best ever look from her.

Olivia Wilde in Roberto Cavalli

Holy side abs! And a second Cavalli that I like!? Color me pleasantly surprised. And curious about how I can get side abs with as little effort possible.

I think Isla and Amy (see below) are trying to confuse the world further with their solid color-asymmetrical neckline gowns.

Amy Adams in Christian Siriano

Stop it! You know the whole world already can’t tell you apart!

Jokes aside, they both look great.

Angela Bassett in Teresa Helbig

Killer. *Insert hands clapping emoji*

Rachel Bloom in Christian Siriano

I love this navy velvet – very luxurious. I’m not wild about how the bust fits though.

Rashida Jones in Valentino

I’m on the record as a huge Valentino fan…but even Pierpaolo gets it very wrong sometimes. It may be gorgeously patterned, but it’s still just a sack.

Kerry Washington in Alexandre Vauthier

This is a little less Oscars and a bit more MTV Music Awards. Fun look, wrong occasion.

Zoe Kravitz in Saint Laurent

Embed from Getty Images

And THIS! This is a Muppet masquerading as formal wear.

Kate Bosworth in Christian Dior

Kate’s look at last years Vanity Fair party made my best dressed list – so this drab number is particularly disappointing. Great jewels though.

Jamie King in Oscar de la Renta

So much fun!

Emma Watson in Ralph Lauren

Embed from Getty Images

Emma’s (thankfully fake) tattoo is apparently misspelled – it’s missing the apostrophe. That’s awkward. But not nearly as awkward as whatever the hell is happening with her bangs.

Paz Vega in Elie Saab

Paz is two for two for me – I loved her strange ceremony gown, and this is undeniably fantastic. I love that she takes risks – they pay off.

Patricia Clarkson in Christian Siriano

Embed from Getty Images

She is such a DISH! This is fantastic.

Halle Berry in Zuhair Murad

How exactly does she propose to sit in this? I mean, there’s short…and then there’s SHORT.

Lea Michele in La Perla

LA PERLA IS NOT CLOTHES. I cannot stress this enough. Just like how Coach should stick to making handbags, La Perla should stick to lingerie instead of creating clothes that are little more than lingerie themselves.

Busy Phillips in Christian Siriano

I love this skirt – it’s very Cinderella. I totally get the fancy/casual juxtaposition with the tank top, but I just wish it looked a little less like one of those tops with the built-in bra we all had in 2002.

Paris Jackson in Atelier Versace

Trashy Tinkerbell. That is all.

Karen Gillan in Ronald van der Kemp

Oh my god, I love this bizarre little dress! Way to end things on a whimsical high note, Karen!
