No, Your Faves Never Made The Best Oscars After-Party List

This is an image of Gigi Hadid, one of the best-dressed celebrities at this year's Oscars after-party.

This year’s Oscars looks were so good that I had to dedicate an entirely separate article to the after-party outfits. Even then, the list is long. I have written a few ‘Best Dressed Lists’ so far in my career, and I honestly think this is the hardest one I’ve ever had to cut down. Guests came to the after-parties ready to fight for a place in those ‘Best Dressed Lists’; honestly, they all deserve one. However, we must pick favourites, so I had to live out my own Sophie’s Choice compiling this list. Without further ado, here are our favourite looks from the night.

Sophie Turner

Oscars After-Party Choice: Louis Vuitton

Sophie Turner attended the 2023 Vanity Fair with her husband, Joe Jonas. She wore a sheer black cape dress with a cut-out just above the plunging neckline. The gothic look complimented the actress’s long red hair perfectly. Combined, the two created a high-fashion Morticia Addams moment. 

Adwoa Aboah

Oscars After-Party Choice: Loewe

The Loewe Anthurium collection is the next PP Pink. Celebrities from Zendaya to Emily Ratajakowski are devouring this collection, and it’s easy to understand why. The looks are eye-catching and sculptural, like wearing a work of art. For the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscars Party, Adwoa Aboah wore a white dress from this collection. She chose the piece that featured a bust made from two orchids. Minimal makeup and a plaited up-do complemented the floral look to tie in with the natural elements of the dress.

Gigi Hadid

Oscars After-Party Choice: Zac Posen

I fell in love with this custom Zac Posen look when I saw it. The deep red and intricate pleating made it so attractive to the eye. It was one of those looks where you can physically see the craftmanship that has gone into it. It wasn’t too long before I realised that it reminded me of another all-time favourite look from Gigi Hadid. Of course, I am talking about her iconic Versace coat from last year’s Met Gala.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. How can a latex jumpsuit and oversized puffer jacket possibly remind me of this dainty gown? Just hear me out; Gigi Hadid is a model who knows fashion. She has her cashmere line and co-hosts Netflix’s Next in Fashion, proving her industry knowledge. From her participation in this show, we can see how much she knows and cares about the design process behind a look. I also think that this is something that she incorporates into her own fashion choices.

Gigi’s after-party and Met Gala looks were very dependent on intentional stitching. Each pleat was crucial in the execution of the pieces. Both outfits champion craftsmanship which is what I love about both of them.
