It's no secret in the Oscars world that some of the fiercest fashions wait until after the awards to come out and play. Some of my favorite looks this year included...
Kate Bosworth romancing in Valentino. While the ruffles along the shoulder and waistline of this gown are no doubt gorgeous, it's the dress's exotic, coral shade that sends the competition packing.
Hilary Swank rocking Armani Privé. The actress took a dramatically different route than stars like J.Lo and Amanda Seyfried (who both wore Armani Privé princess gowns), opting for something that better suits her straightforward style, and really plays up her sex appeal.
Katy Perry mesmerizing in Zuhair Murad. This modern mermaid make (from the Spring 2010 Couture collection) has an Old Hollywood glam appeal that suits Katy's voluminous 'do perfectly.
Kate Beckinsale shimmering in Kaufman Franco. Kate rarely disappoints on the red carpet, and this occasion was no exception. While the fit of her asymmetrical gown was rather breezy, it still managed to emphasize the actress's flawless figure.
And believe me, you ain't seen nuttin' yet! Check out more Oscars after-party styles now on All the Looks.
