Kristen Stewart wore lace Chanel to the VF Oscar party: doily mess or fine?

Many years, I lament the fact that the Oscar afterparty dresses are often better/more fun/cuter than the Oscar dresses. I’m pleased to say that this year, most women wore their “better” looks to the Oscars, and then they wore some big, messy, god-awful sh-t to the parties. Kristen Stewart wasn’t one of them though – she wore Chanel booty shorts and greasy hair to the Oscars, then she changed into this horrid lace Chanel dress with a buttoned crotch. A rare moment when I loathe both the Oscar and the after-party looks. Weirdly, I think she washed her hair in-between the Oscars and the parties.

Zendaya changed out of her custom Valentino and into this tailored Sportmax suit. She looks so good in menswear-inspired stuff, she really does.

Dakota Johnson in Gucci. She should have been invited to the Oscars and she could have worn this! This is so fun.

Jessica Chastain, Best Actress Oscar winner, changed out of her cheap-looking purple-and-gold Gucci and into this poison-green Gucci for the parties. I think… this was fine? It’s a fun party dress, she looked like she really loved it and the Oscar popped off the green.

Tessa Thompson in Schiaparelli. Lord, this isn’t even a fun party dress. It doesn’t look comfortable in the least.

    Dakota’s dress wow! Looks beautiful

      Dakota looks stunning!

      Kristen Stewart was such a sartorial disappointment all around. I had really enjoyed most of her fashion and styling this award season and had high hopes for her to really bring it to the Oscar red carpet with a show stopper. Something that would really elevate her even further. Instead it’s like she took a step backwards and we got same old / same old fashion from her. She’s done the shorts on the red carpet look so many times before. Yawn.

        I’m not sure how KS’s plunging neckline/see though dress can look dowdy, but it does.

    Both Kristen and Tessa are a mess. Dakota looks amazing!

  3. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    So much Kristen Stewart hate on here! I think she looks amazing. Not quite as sexy as her Oscar look – but wow she’s gorgeous. It’s the confidence in her own skin that I find so compelling

    • Mai B says:

      I like Zendaya’s look, she looks like she should be in Men In Black.

      • minx says:

        Zendaya looks fantastic! I’m not the biggest Dakota fan but she looks stunning here. And Jessica looks like a real Oscar winner, dazzling.

    • Barbie1 says:

      Everyone looks incredible except Tessa. I prefer these K-stew/ Jessica’s dresses over their red carpet looks. Zendaya’s suit thrills.

    If Kristen is such a fashion rebel and only ‘plays dress up ‘ cause she has to then she honestly shouldnt sign another contract. Her attitude towards fashion stinks, and she wore that tacky outfit to the Oscars as a big ‘Up Yours’ because she no longer had anything to lose. I truely dont see what fashion houses get in return for being associated with her.

    • Div says:

      Huh? I very much disliked her Chanel look at the Oscars (though I like this dress at the VF party) but they gave her the outfit to wear. Very strange to act like this was a eff you to Chanel when…Chanel created the look for her to wear. Again, I didn’t like it but saying Kristen wore a Chanel look-that Chanel gave her for the Oscars as part of her contract-as an eff you to Chanel makes zero sense. A lot of weird hostility towards her.

      • Noki says:

        No i didnt mean to Chanel ,i meant to the whole pageantry aspect. She clearly doesnt like it. However do you think Chanel really wanted their Oscar leading lady to wear something like that !?

    • tolly says:

      Her face is always a ringing endorsement of Chanel cosmetics, and the divisive outfits land her on the homepage of a lot of fashion sites. Chanel pays for exposure, so they get their money’s worth out of her.

    • KLO says:

      I got the same feeling that she tried to do the American Sweetheart Princess thing until the votes were counted and then went full “i don`t know how to call this” for the actual ceremony.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Zendaya looks awesome!
    Everyone else should have worn these dresses to the ceremony, I like them all better.

  6. Sue says:

    Dakota was channeling Moira Rose and I am here for it.

  7. Eurydice says:

    Kristen’s dress is such a droopy, saggy mess – the neckline isn’t sexy, it just looks like the top is too big for her – and the sad bow, pointless buttons and patch pockets, what?

    I was kind of into Tessa’s high black collar until I scrolled down – no.

    And Zendaya looks awesome – perfect tailoring and just the perfect amount of purple sleeve showing at the cuff.

  8. girl_ninja says:

    Ahhh…Miss Jessica looked gorgeous. I am loving the color of that gown, Z of course looks fabulous and Dakota looks like she grabbed a gown from Mrs. Roper’s closet and I am into it.

  9. Div says:

    Shrug, I really like Kristen’s dress. Completely bizarre that Chanel gave her the weird suit with shorts for the Oscars (tbf, if they were pants I think it would have been slightly different) and then this for the VF after party. I don’t know what designer Timothee Chalamet was wearing but he had a similar look to Kristen’s at the ceremony except with pants and I kept thinking…for the Oscars? Nah. Indie spirits would have been the place for it.

    I also like Jessica’s look way more here than the one she wore at the ceremony. Dakota looks like a fancy feathered mop.

    Zendaya is PERFECTION, I am in love with her suitdress but even when she doesn’t kill it like in the Oscars, she manages to look absolutely stunning.

    The other ones, well only Jessica Chastain looks great. KStew has disappointed me both in the cerfemony and the after party, what a shame, I usually like the risks she takes with fashion.

  11. Arpeggi says:

    I didn’t hate Kristen’s outfit. This is a nightgown though. At least I hope it’s comfortable and not itchy?

    Jessica’s dress is great! Zendaya could wear a paper bag and look awesome. It’s a good look but maybe a bit stiff for a party? Or maybe I haven’t recovered from that perfect skirt

  12. MsIam says:

    I like Zendaya’s suit better than the skirt combo she wore to the Oscars. Same with Jessica’s gown, gorgeous color. Meh to the rest.

  13. Daisy says:

    Kristen’s Chanel look with the shorts was custom, she approved the look and wore it because she liked it. I didn’t like it but it was a very KStew look and it was clear they were going for the “rebel” look. I was more surprised Penélope wore a dress from the 2020.21 season and not something custom or at least from the new collection. Also I loved Jessica’s dress, she looks so good in green. And I guess it’s an unpopular opinion but I’m here for any Schiaparelli red carpet moment, it’s so fun.

  14. SomeChick says:

    Dakota’s dress is nearly a foot too long. it’s going to get ruined at this party.

    I’m amazed that people seem to think Kristen doesn’t wash her hair. it’s called product. she was clearly wearing hair gel earlier. during the restyle they probably sprayed it with product remover (which is a thing and it’s awesome) and then used something lighter weight on the look here.

    Jessica looked great all night! I’m glad she won, this was a passion project for her and I’m sure it meant a lot.

    and the buried lede… Schiaparelli brings back bike shorts!!!

  15. Normades says:

    None of these outfits look party appropriate.
    I love Dakotas dress but someone should have worn it to the ceremony. Way too long and dressy for the party.
    Zendaya suit is fab but looks too buttoned up, stiff for a party. She already went pretty tame at the ceremony now was the time to have more fun.
    Jessica’s dress just screamed ‘this was the one I didn’t choose for the ceremony’.
