As much as we love to obsess over what celebrities wear down the Academy Awards' hallowed red carpet, it can be almost more interesting to see what they wear to the after-parties--for a couple of reasons. For one, those who make an outfit change often put on something a little more daring. Second, the parties draw a wider range of stylish celebrities, including those who didn't get an invite to the main event.
The Governor's ball, Madonna's party, Elton John's AIDS Foundation benefit, and Graydon Carter's Vanity Fair bash were the biggest events last night. And since photos are scarce from the first two, we focused on John's and Carter's soirees to bring you the best looks from celebs like Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Olsen, Sofia Coppola, January Jones, Kim Kardashian, a very pregnant Alessandra Ambrosio, a happy-looking Heidi Klum, a less chaste Shailene Woodley and more. Click through to see them all. Who do you think was the best dressed party girl?
