So by now you”ll be well versed in all things Academy Awards, having read through the live blog and taken a look at the hits and misses of the night, so there’s no better time to take a look at what everyone else wore, at the annual post-Academy Awards party, hosted by Graydon Carter of Vanity Fair.

Zoe Saldana – where was she on the red carpet? She was missed; I love this Marios Schwab gown.

Predictably classy and boring from VB. Next!

Venus Williams in Christiane King – get an excellent dupe from Sass & Bide at Asos!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showed up with her beau Jason Statham in Antonio Berardi.

Olivia Wilde, who was the media darling at last year’s Golden Globes, in a strapless, corseted dress by Gucci.

Minnie Driver’s dress was one of the biggest surprises for me – I loved it, although I wish she hadn’t gone quite so matchy-matchy with her shoes.

Marisa Miller’s gold gown was certainly eye-catching, but a little dull if you ask me – and when head to toe sequins are dull, you know they’ve been overdone.

I loved Lily Collins in Monique Lhuillier – it reminded me of the Elie Saab dresses I posted on just this week.

Katie Holmes did, in fact, opt for Elie Saab couture from the A/W collection – and I loved the colour on her, despite feeling as if Tom Cruise was the most disappointing final Oscar host ever.

I was so glad when Jennifer Lopez changed from her earlier-in-the-night nudity dress by Zuhair Murad, into this gorgeous crimson number also by Murad.

I’m really not sure how I feel about January Jones’s choice. I appreciate the bravery of it, but I just don’t quite love it. It’s by Wes Gordon.

Ah, Elizabeth. In Dior – with a bag by The Row. I hope the rumours about you and Alexander Skarsgard are true …

Calvin Klein on Diane Kruger – but of course.

Claire Danes in Valentino – just stunning. As far as I’m concerned the girl can do no wrong!

Amy Adams is in Vivienne Westwood – and I really, really dislike this choice. It’s too pale for her skintone and the silver dress + silver shoes screams tacky, if you ask me.

Who did you think was best-dressed on the night? And whose outfit did you hate?
