Laura Dern let her hair down for the VF Oscar Party and it looks so much better, right?

2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party - Arrivals
We’re doing some Vanity Fair Oscar party photos but we’ll have more for you tomorrow too. It was a long night for us. Laura Dern isn’t always a miss on the red carpet, which is why it was disappointing to see her in that Armani boob-tassel number with very dated styling. The dangling parts kept moving during her acceptance speech and it was distracting. She let her hair down for the VF Oscar Party and it looked so much nicer. You could tell she had extensions, they reminded me of her character’s hair in Marriage Story, but they looked just full and not fake. Laura wore a 1017 ALYX 9SM blazer (thanks JJ for that ID) over a t-front black dress. This is a decent party look, and it’s not like she could have worn this for the ceremony. I wanted to see more from her. Oh and she carried her Oscar! I would bring that thing with me to all the parties too.

Rachel Brosnahan wasn’t at the Oscars but she did do the Spirit Awards the night before. She was super cute there so I don’t know what happened over the course of a day where she ended up like this. I don’t have an ID on this dress and that’s probably for the best. Her styling is so bad. Sometimes I wonder if celebrities know how terrible their looks turn out and just assume that’s part of the deal. A whole team of people created this look.

Joey King watched the Oscars at home, we know because she posted about it on her Instagram stories. Then she got glammed up to the go to the parties with her sister, Hunter King. I love Joey’s curly hair and her very mod brown dress. I wonder if this is 3D printed or laser cut. I feel like I don’t know enough about technological innovations in fashion. She looks like a wood nymph and this is fabulous. (Update: Just Jared has the ID on this and it’s a “threeASFOUR laser-cut cork fabric Fig Leaf Dress. Hunter is in Georges Hobeika.)

Emma Roberts kind of phoned it in in this black semi-sheer frou-frou gown. Her styling is pretty but now that she’s blonde she looks interchangeable with so many other actresses.

    I think Emma’s dress…the fit is spectacular! Her hair color and makeup unfortunately doesn’t pop…but she looks lovely…

    Ms. King…looks like an edgy fashion QUEEN!!!! I LOVE THAT OUTFIT!

    • Nancito says:

      At first glance, I thought that Emma Roberts was Ivanka. And that is NOT something you want people thinking.

  2. ks says:

    I love Emma’s look!

  3. Lucy says:

    Joey’s style is so interesting and striking!!

    • Moneypenny says:

      I really like this dress. I especially like it in combination with the hair!

    • Livvers says:

      Tinkerbell/Ferngully realness. I like when red carpet looks seem to directly reference childhood fantasy dressing. Goodness knows I wore a locket on my forehead often enough trying to emulate the Empress in Neverending Story, if I was a 20 year old ingenue attending fancy dress events, I’d probably do it again. 🙂

    • Loved Joey’s dress and how she styled herself. She took a risk and pulled it off. She looks great. I haven’t seen Marriage Story yet, but I usually enjoy Laura’s acting. However, when it comes to fashion and styling, she is ALWAYS one hot mess in my opinion. I don’t think either of the gowns last night did her any favors last night and that mess she wore to the Spirit awards should be taken somewhere and burned.

    I actually think that’s probably the most I can remember liking an Emma Roberts look. Styling and all. It’s very simple, but she looks great.

    Laura’s hair looks great here. She’s a pretty lady, but she looks really nice here.

    Joey’s outfit is super fun. It’s not something I’d ever choose, but I really like looking at it. It’s just really interesting.

  5. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I actually like Rachel’s dress. It just needed a lining. Her hair was a mess though. It’s like they didn’t know what to do with it.

    I LOVE Joey’s dress. It’s fun and unique. And Emma is blah. As usual.

  6. TheOriginalMia says:

    Loved Joey’s dress. She’s so cute. Emma looks dated. Rachel…I’m over sheer dresses, except for Geena’s. Love Laura’s dress. Much better looking than that tassel mess she wore.

  7. Case says:

    I think Emma looks really beautiful! It’s a plain look, but classy.

  8. Kaylove says:

    I love Joey’s dress but I dont think I like the matchy shoes.

  9. Moneypenny says:

    Laura Dern looks better, but anything is an improvement over a dress that seemed inspired by a Victorian lamp shade.

    I don’t like the cut outs, as they seem to draw your eye down and give me the illusion of sagging.

    • josephine says:

      I thought the same about the sagging – Dern has a killer body and that dress isn’t doing her any favors. I like her better with a middle part. The back of her hair is just so “old lady” puffy to me, like she has one of those fake bumps people put under their hair.

    • omnibre says:

      Dern’s been wearing the black T-front dress since the mid90s! Someone put the photos on twitter and it’s great.

  10. lucy2 says:

    I like Emma’s dress, but find her highly annoying.

    • omnibre says:

      It’s weird how just because she’s female she’s gotten away with physical abuse against a partner.

  11. Kelly says:

    Is it just me or does Emma look like Hailey Baldwin there?

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Yeah she kinda does. Is her nose smaller than before? It’s like she has done something to zap all of the character in her face and I don’t think it’s just the blonde hair.

    • TheOtherSam says:

      Same thoughts. I had to do a double take.

  12. ChillyWilly says:

    Joey is adorable in that dress!

  13. A says:

    Laura looks nice but LOL @ her winning for her Marriage Story role. Even the pretentious film twitter people didn’t think she should have won which says a lot because they like everything performed by a popular white woman.

  14. Sass says:

    Laura’s look here is way way better than her Oscar look. Rachel B why baby why? I haven’t liked a look of hers since that gorgeous red gown. Who did this to you? The King sisters are impeccable, I’ve loved nearly everything I’ve seen them in, especially Joey.

  15. Charfromdarock says:

    I’ve loved everything Joey King has worn.

  16. Shackella says:

    I’m sorry but blond Emma Roberts looks like James Charles doing Dua Lipa drag…
