Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad at the VF Oscar party: still glum or perked up?

CA: Vanity Fair Oscar Party - Arrivals

I thought Jennifer Lopez looked especially glum and over-it at the Oscars, but she seemed to perk up slightly for the Vanity Fair Oscar party. She went with Alex Rodriguez, who may or may not be plucking her last nerve. Mostly, I think Jennifer was happy to have better makeup for the afterparties – her styling at the Oscars was not great. She wore this peacock vibing Zuhair Murad dress. I love the colors but hate the design.

Kacey Musgraves in Versace. Kacey really went to LA to do the whole Oscar experience. I can’t hate on her hustle – maybe Kacey is the next Blake Shelton, some country crossover who becomes a huge multi-platform name. She’s certainly trying. Anyway, I actually sort of like this Versace – it’s a great party dress.

KiKi Layne also chose Versace for her party dress. This doesn’t look comfortable, nor is it actually that cute?

Emily Ratajkowski in Brock Collection. I’m shocked that all of her bits and pieces aren’t hanging out. I’m also shocked that her shady husband isn’t hanging on her. Huh.

Taraji Henson in Roland Mouret, with her fiance. I really dislike the dress, but her man is handsome.

    In the photo with ARod, Jlo has a fake forced smile on her face that reads” hurry up and take the damm photo can’t stand being so close to this person right now”
    She is pissed
    PS: Her dress is gorgeous

      Which I don’t understand…. just don’t bring him with you! Whether it’s a breakup happening or if he’s just driving her nuts… leave him home, girl.

      I agree on the dress. I kind of love it. It’s different, and really eye catching, but in a good way. This is probably my favorite JLo look.

      • ByTheSea says:

        But she can’t be anywhere without him now, not after all those declarations of love and the hinting for a ring (which hint he has not taken, apparently).

    • AnnaKist says:

      Ha! I always need to do a mental translation. In Australia (and Britain, too, still?) , saying ‘’she’s pissed’’ means ‘she’s drunk’. Maybe she is drunk…

      • Lizzie says:

        fun fact: jlo doesn’t drink alcohol or caffeine and like – never has. which partially explains why she looks 25 years younger than her age LOL

    • Mia says:

      With her hand on the hip, JLO looks like she’s carrying a fan.

  2. Lucy2 says:

    I love J Lo’s dress! She does seem unhappy based on these photos. Must have had a bad evening.
    I don’t care for any of the other dresses in this post .

    • 90sgrirl says:

      JLO had three weeks or four ,of not so good press after the Motown performance and then the Elvis Presley tribute. Maybe she’s just not in the mood.

  3. Dee says:

    As soon as I got the New York Times magazine last Sunday, I knew RUFFLES were going to be the next big thing (and the next majorly-regretted thing). So ridiculous — these dresses are (I suppose) trying to look bold and architectural, but they really just look like tacky little girls’ skating costumes.

  4. Birdie says:

    Jlo seems not that happy lately. When she made the promo tour with Leah Remini she seemed moody and over it. We all know how she acts when she is in love but with A-Rod it is different. Maybe he looks good on paper but she isn’t into it? She just seems gloomy idk.

    • KLO says:

      Maybe she was just hella tired from being really hot in that tight disco ball dress :D. I am not digging the color of her foundation, other than that I think she lookes effin fab.

  5. W1hatever says:

    J Lo’s dress is absolutely stunning! my fav from the VF party.

  6. grabbyhands says:

    As ever, Emily Rajakowski looks a newly revived corpse. It looks like she is dressed in an undergarment she found in an attic that she decided to pretend was a gown but didn’t have time to launder first.

    • Josephine says:

      Who is she? The only thing I ever see about her is a bunch of topless of near-nude photos. And yes, the “dress” is awful.

      But I’m kinda digging Kiki’s dress. It’s weird but my eye keeps getting drawn to it. I think it’s the perfect dress for the after-parties.

    • Esmom says:

      Haha. It is such a terrible dress. Yikes.

  7. AnnaKist says:

    JL looks so much better with her hair (wig?) in this style. Her days of being an earlier incarnation of Ariana Grande are long gone. Is it the light, or does the spray tan lady hate her? I’ve given upon that pout of hers. Emily R and Taraji… oh, dear.

    • Kitten says:

      If you saw the pics from yesterday, AnnaKist, she was also very very orange. I don’t get it. Maybe it looks more natural in person but on camera is just looks awful.

      I do love that dress on her though and I agree about her hair. I think she took out the hair pieces/extensions. It looks so much more modern/fresh.

  8. otaku fairy... says:

    Love J.Lo’s dress. Not everybody would look good in that combination of colors though. I think this dress Kiki Layne is wearing is cooler than the pink one she wore.

  9. duchess of hazard says:

    I don’t mind Taraji Henson’s outfit. It works for her. She’s normally short waisted, so hiking the band under her breasts (the smallest part of her torso) makes her form look slimmer and elongated. The dualchrome colour is a good one for her skin. It’s almostcarmel but not, so it lends some interest, but I always like to see her in dark, inky colours.

    JLo-s dress is so pretty! I love the effect of holding the fan at your waist, and it fans out. It’s a lovely bit of architecture. Also, the inky dark background with the colours to the fore front at the waist is just cunning.

    • Josephine says:

      I like Taraji’s as well, but are those actually pants on the bottom? Either way, I think it’s flattering on her. I hate ruffles but somehow hers are ok. She looks really pretty.

    • LauraBee says:

      I agree about Taraji’s outfit. For some reason I like it even more as pants.

  10. Jess says:

    I love Kiki’s dress and she looks stunning.

  11. Millenial says:

    Kacey just won the Grammy for album of the year, so I don’t think its odd she’s showing up to the big parties. She gets zero support from country radio/the industry, so she has to drum up business/interest elsewhere.

  12. DiegoInSF says:

    The dress is so beautiful! Maybe she’s just tired, she just works too much!

  13. Esmom says:

    I liked JLo’s first look much better, both the dress and hairstyle. I thought it was extra to change dresses for the parties but redoing your hair, too? So. Much. Work. Maybe that’s why she looks like that.

  14. Anare says:

    JLo looks hungry and gaunt. ARod’s Botox forehead is making me laugh. He has a confused look. LOL! Musgraves dress is icky. I don’t like the way it’s clinging. Taraji looks cute. Looks like a jumpsuit. Not her most glam look but comfy. Her man is fine. 😍

  15. Adrien says:

    Kacey looks like Demi Moore. ARod is like an awkward looking Gary Shandling. He looked like an awkward Jon Lovitz before.

  16. Lindy says:

    Totally disagree about Kiki Layne–I think she’s killing it in that dress! The color, the structure, the cut… It’s a unique look and she’s pulling it off!

  17. Grant says:

    Why is Emily Rata…ski a thing? She was in a bad music video for a bad song five years ago and then had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it role in Gone Girl. Why is she still around?

  18. bobafelty says:

    J Lo’s dress is super tacky, and I still love it on her for some reason. It suits her and she has the confidence to pull off such a wackadoo look.

  19. Veronica S. says:

    Is Taraji’s outfit a dress or is it a jumpsuit? I feel like there’s a seam down the middle. I almost feel like I’d like it more as a jumpsuit because why not go full ridiculous disco? She and her fiance are a cute couple, though.

  20. Kerfuffle says:

    I don’t get how J Lo looked glum? She doesn’t smile on the carpet.

    Also, Emily R looks like she didn’t get many dress options if she ended up with that one. She’s tall and a model – a sample size should fit her fairly well, and this looks like it’s falling off. To me, it says that she was left with whatever was leftover.

  21. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    Well, no surprise, I love JLo’s dress and Kiki’s. Kaiser’s comment on perhaps Alex was getting on her last nerve made me laugh. I think I’ll go “no comment” on the other dresses.

  22. Naddie says:

    Jennifer made the dress look good because of her amazing body. I also like her hair.
    Loving Kiki’s dress and damn, what a perfect looking individual she is.

  23. Seraphina says:

    She makes this drrss look good but she still looks like a cross between Vanna White and a vegas show girl. And A Rod, she could do way better than him. Someone out of show biz, someone smart and established and secure. But I think she likes the drama. Sad. Smart in business not so smart with men.
