We're a little woozy from all of the Oscars excitement last night, and we didn't even go, let alone win a coveted statue, so we can hardly even imagine how our award winning actresses are feeling today. Probably a little more than woozy, but we're sure they're also elated. Bravo, ladies! But we're not just applauding their achievements, we're also applauding their sartorial success. Not only did all of these women make it onto our 10 Best Dressed List, but they also managed to wear not one but TWO amazing dresses, by changing before the Vanity Fair party that night. Ok so maybe Anne Hathaway wins the big prize because she actually wore THREE dresses last night, but we're not splitting hairs here. When was the last time we got to wear an incredible designer gown, you ask? Yeah...we're not gonna answer that.
ANNE HATHAWAY IN PRADA, ARMANI, & CUSTOM SAINT LAURENT

It was really hard to decide who would lead this post, but with three Oscars looks, Anne Hathaway had a clear advantage. She started the night in a now-infamous pink Prada gown, which had her, shall we say, standing out in the crowd a little more than perhaps she would have intended? Sorry, we had to. But really, we think it was a combination of the dress' darts and the chilly LA air that was the cause for Anne Hathaway nipplegate, and that really, all press is good press right? And who doesn't want to join Angie's leg in infamy? For her second look of the night, Anne took to the Oscars stage in a draped, glittering Armani gown to perform a medley of songs from Les Miserables along with the rest of the cast. The dress features tiered cream fabric with glinting royal blue gems on the neck and hemlines, and, while it keeps to the empire waisted silhouette that Anne is fond of, it's a much more relaxed look than the structured Prada. For her final look of the night, Anne stepped out in custom powder blue Saint Laurent at the Vanity Fair party. She is understandably beaming with her well-deserved statue, and she herself is statuesque in the wholly unstructured column gown with a densely beaded neckline.
JENNIFER LAWRENCE IN DIOR HAUTE COUTURE & CALVIN KLEIN

We can safely say that last night was Jennifer Lawrence's night. While her choice of Dior Haute Couture on the red carpet wasn't a surprise to anyone, she chose a gorgeous dress to round out her awards season in, and despite being somewhat hard to walk in during the heat of the moment (but really, what WOULDN'T be hard to walk in when you're that freaked out), her voluminous blush gown was the perfect look for the young actress. A train like that isn't exactly party friendly, however, so we're not at all surprised that Jennifer changed into a sleeker Calvin Klein number to show off her statue at the Vanity Fair party. The spaghetti strapped column gown featured a sweetheart neckline and the most incredible shimmering gunmetal color, and paired with J.Law's simple, smouldering makeup from earlier in the night it was sharp, slick, but still fun and young.
AMANDA SEYFRIED IN ALEXANDER MCQUEEN & GIVENCHY

Amanda Seyfried took an interesting tack when coordinating her red carpet to party dresses (with a stop on-stage in between)--she chose two very different gowns, one silver and one pure, show stopping red, but found them in similar silhouettes. This created a lovely continuity in her looks throughout the night, but still gave us not one but two pretty dresses for us to oogle and imaging ourselves twirling around in. Her first gown, a floral-detailed Alexander McQueen with a keyhole neckline and long train, was one of our favorites of the night, and it looked like it was basically made to fit Amanda's body flawlessly. For her second look, the actress stepped up the drama in a big way in bright red Givenchy. Her second look also featured a key hole shape, but this time with almost-bondage inspired straps and red leather details. MAJOR. We thought she might just be bringing out the look for her performance, but we were happy to see it up close at the Governor's Ball later on in the night.
AMY ADAMS IN OSCAR DE LA RENTA

Amy Adams was the only one of our girls to do the double designer red carpet to party look. We went bananas over her princess-pretty dove grey Oscar de la Renta gown on the red carpet, and we have to say that although it's a TOTALLY different look, we love the super sleek, super lux gold fringe Oscar that she slipped into for the Vanity Fair party. Her party look is a modern take on the flapper dress, keeping the signature glossy fringe while opting for a more flattering cut than the usual column. We've been trying to avoid playing favorites, but we have to say, in this case we much prefer the party look to the red carpet, and seeing as how much we liked Amy's red carpet steeze, that's saying a lot.
What do you think of our leading ladies' red carpet to party style?
