Angela Bassett wore Moschino to the VF Oscar Party, looked unbothered

If you lost at the Oscars would you be tempted to go home and skip the parties? I know I would. Hell, I would want to ditch the minute someone else’s name was announced. These celebrities have teams of people relying on them to showcase and promote their work. Plus their friends and coworkers are out and they can mingle. You know they have decent snacks and drinks and by that time you’re starving. Networking is part of their job. I would not make a decent celebrity, is what I’m saying.

Angela Bassett wore a Moschino gown to the ceremony and she changed into a Moschino pantsuit for the Vanity Fair after party. She is vibrant and unbothered and her friends and family were there! I was looking at the Instagram for her makeup artist and he reposted a story where someone posted her picture and wrote “face card never declines” which is so accurate for her. He also posted the makeup he uses for her and it’s all Chanel.

Danai Gurira was in a glam pink sequin gown that fit her like a glove. She was working that cleavage and she looked amazing. I love how she was all covered up and prim for the Oscars and let loose for the after party.

Salma Hayek wore Gucci to the ceremony. I don’t have an ID on her after party dress, but she definitely picked the better dress to wear earlier in the night. This looks a little nightgowny, I think that’s due to the lace edging. I like her daughter Valentina’s dress a little better. Valentina is 15 and she looks so bored! I remember that age, it’s just how they are.

Hong Chau changed into black ruched Maison Rabih Kayrouz. This is such a different look from her staid pink Prada at the ceremony and I like it. Like Danai, she was conservative for the Oscars and switched it up after. I’ve enjoyed seeing her fashion this awards season. She takes calculated risks.

Allison Williams should have worn this striped gold gown to the Oscars. It’s so much better than the pink Giambattista Valli mess she had on. She was just a presenter though, maybe she didn’t want to overdo it.

    They always look better at the after-parties than at the Oscars — why is that?

  2. Runaway says:

    As always miss Bassett slays!
    That vibrant outfit looks amazing on her.
    She is the world’s auntie.
    Love her

  3. tamsin says:

    Love Angela’s pantsuit. What a great carefree vibe.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes and the color looks incredible on her too!!! I love how stunning she looked this awards season but I don’t think I have ever seen her not killing it. AB is a goddess!!!!

      As for Wiliams, she certainly hit it as did Gurira. As for Salma at least she didn’t go to her usual look. Though her daughter looked miserable the entire night. Does her husband ever attend events with her??

      Hong Chau she looks perfect with her choice of dress but I don’t know if I can get behind the boots. But I am not that fashion forward but it give her look some edge to it though. They were probably much more comfortable than stilettos as well.

      • Josephine says:

        The color was such a nice relief from the black and nudes. The red and purple in that top pic just made me so happy.

  4. Seraphina says:

    While Angela can carry the pant suit look and she wears it well, it reminds me of late 80s early 90s Barbie outfits.

    • Betsy says:

      It would take a very specific circumstance (here) and a very strong person (her) to wear it, because otherwise it would absolutely read 1989 Barbie outfit. The little flat one, sold by itself, not a whole featured Barbie.

    • Christine says:

      LMAO!!! I think Angela Basset looks amazing, but you killed me with the Barbie reference. It’s like the time I forgot to peel Barbie’s pants off (the pink ones, with the sparkles) before I put her in her hot tub. And of course her stupid Barbie “heels” were still on, with the dumb pegs that attached them to her feet.

      JFC, I have just gone back in time, to the 80s, thank you for that.

      But Angela Basset looks incredible!! She’s wearing this, it’s not wearing her.

  5. Chaine says:

    Salma’s figure is still to die for whatever she wears. The child looks so pissed to be there, should have left her at home for a few more years. I love the color on Angela but not the design.

    • CuriousCole says:

      Agreed @Chaine. Valentina doesn’t look bored, she looks pissy at having to be there. I wonder if Salma is using her as a buffer so people won’t ask questions about why her husband is absent, again.

      • TwinFalls says:

        She looked like that on stage, too. Leave your grumpy kids at home to be kids.

      • Betsy says:

        She’s giving strong Detective Rosa Diaz vibes.

      • Josephine says:

        Seems to me that a child that age would just say no. I suspect she’s just trying out her “serious” face and it went a little sideways. She’s really just a kid so I’m giving her the benefit of a doubt because man, she does look mega-bratty there. But my own kids sometimes look bratty when something else is going on.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Salma brings her everywhere and that is always how she looks. I know she’s just a kid which is why I hesitate to criticize-but she just looks so spoiled and bratty at all of these events. I am the mom of teens/young adults and my feeling is, don’t bring them to adult events if they can’t behave.

      • Ameerah M says:

        Behave?? Nothing about her face says she is “misbehaving”. She may simply have RBF. And that’s okay. Kids don’t have to perform for folks.

      • Fabiola says:

        You have to be a special kind of ahole to pick on a kid. She’s a teenager. I’m sure she’d rather be with her friends. We’ve all been there as teens. I’m sure her mom means well and wants to just spend time with her.

  6. Kirsten says:

    Angela’s and Danai’s outfits look so uncomfortable to me. Like, taffeta pantsuit has got to feel quite weird to walk in?

    I love Hong’s and Allison’s dresses — they both look great.

  7. lucy2 says:

    Now this post, I like all of them! Angela’s is not my favorite, but the color is perfection on her, and she’s clearly having fun with it.
    Salma and her daughter’s gowns are lovely. I hope this is not step one of pushing her daughter into the spotlight though.

  8. TwinFalls says:

    Angela Bassett deserves an Oscar for coming to the after party with an unbothered face. She was robbed and I love JLC.

  9. HeyKay says:

    Salma daughter looked annoyed in every photo.
    She obviously did not want to be at any of these events.
    Salma should have come alone.

    I like AB pantsuit, but maybe in a green or blue.

    • Coco says:

      If you google there are photos of her smiling. I think this is just her face and as someone who has “resting bitch face” I’ve been told many times that I look angry, or bitchy because I’m not smiling.

      If she didn’t want to be there I’m sure she would not have been.

    • Granger says:

      Seriously, I can’t imagine any 15 year old wouldn’t want to go to an Oscars after-party. She’s grown up around actors and models. She might have RBF, but she might also be trying out her serious pouty face.

  10. TIFFANY says:

    Angela is great as always.

    Danai is a absolutely stunning woman. Seriously.

    And Hong needs to start practing for more award carpets.

    Her turn in The Whale was amazing and this woman is only gonna get better.

  11. Jen says:

    Wow, Salma in TWO dresses that fit her. The fit on this is even better than her ceremony dress. She looks great in it, but it’s not going to be as memorable as the dress she wore at the actual event. Her daughter’s dress is very softly romantic and I love it.

  12. Kittenmom says:

    Love Angela’s pantsuit & Salma’s dress. Salma looks better here than she did at the ceremony. I think that is just her kiddo’s normal facial expression, and she looks nice too.

  13. Sshark_29 says:

    Number one pet peeve, “smile, you look so much prettier when you do.” She’s a kid (Selma’s) she has rbf, men say that smile bs to me all the time when I’m just trying to live my life. It irks me grown women on here saying it to a kid. She wouldn’t go if she didn’t want to she’s a teenager, I think it gets overwhelming the picture part but I bet she enjoys the party. Either way give up the you should smile bs that’s rude.

  14. Notjust says:

    Allison Williams and her husband look like brother and sister in these pictures. I feel for Salma’s daughter, it’s not easy to constantly smile or maybe she’s a little self-conscious. I’m giving her te benefit of doubt for being a teen/ having RBF.

  15. Well Wisher says:

    Hong Chou’s is the best look, pairing it with boots is fantastic.
    Angela Basset is taking chances and doing well. The children are grown. A lovely 👪.
    All the women are 😻.
