The famous Vanity Fair Oscars party is almost as popular as the Oscars themselves, and for this, the stars are prepared to let their hair down. The style rules relax and major fashion statements are made - see Sarah Paulson's yellow and black dress. Browse our gallery here for some of the most head-turning looks on the Vanity Fair red carpet.
Diane Kruger gets the legs out - and why not? Although it does look like she just took a pair of scissors to a full-length gown.
Allison Williams of Girls fame makes a demure, Black Swan inspired statement.
Elizabeth Banks is a bronzed goddess and her dress is one of our favourites of the entire night.
Let's talk about Kate Bosworth. She's so dainty, angelic and stunning she almost looks as if she's been superimposed into this photo. Lots of twirling opportunities with this dress.
Rooney Mara is such a style queen she feels no need to smile for us mere mortals.
Thandie Newton goes for a rock-chick vibe.
Emily Ratajkowki. GOALZ.
Gabrielle Union, who got her big break with Bring It On, opts for something interesting and barely there. It's half black red carpet gown half blue bikini. We're not sure.
Demi Lovato sports long luscious extensions with a prom-like dress. Cute.
Kate Upton nails it in a classic metallic gown and those Hollywood waves.
Sia suits up with her face concealed (though at this point we're not sure why she bothers given that we've all seen her).
Jennifer Aniston rocked up with beau Justin Theroux, and of course she wore black (it's only ever black or beige) but this time, she went for a thigh-high slit, similar to - dare we say it - something Angelina Jolie wore a few years back.
Finally, props to Jessica Alba for stepping outside her comfort zone.
