The handing out of those little golden statues is just one of the many exciting aspects of tuning into the annual Academy Awards. Even before all the accolades have been presented, some celebrities are already toasting glasses of champagne at the post-ceremony festivities — and doing so in style. And in terms of the 2020 Oscar After-Party Looks, some of the best fashions even rivaled those from the pre-show red carpet.
Before the show even started, the stars were making jaws drop with Swarovski-studded hoods and statement necklaces, among other standouts. But thankfully, the glamour didn't stop there. As celebs trickled into the coveted Vanity Fair after party one-by-one, the stunning looks just kept on coming, and among them were some of the trends that had already been getting some buzz, like a classic red lip, an effortless bob, and yes — so many sequins.
While the star-studded list of attendees all looked incredibly chic, Tracee Ellis Ross' gold gown and matching cape, Elizabeth Banks' recycled Badgley Mischka (which she first wore to an Oscar's party in 2004!), and Olivia Wilde's dramatic sleeves were some of the most memorable fashions spotted.
