The Oscar Dresses You Didn't See

Posted on

After the last Oscar is handed out, actresses rush to change out of their elegant ballgowns and slip into something sexier (and more dance-floor-friendly!) for the after-parties. And since most stars’ second looks rarely get as much screen time as their red carpet numbers, we’re spotlighting our favorite post-show dresses.

Jennifer Lawrence: After tripping in her over-the-top Dior creation when accepting her trophy for Best Actress, the Oscar winner changed into something she could get down in — a second-skin metallic Calvin Klein Collection dress with a structured bodice. (Side note: Does the sexiness and simplicity of this gown remind anyone else of a certain other Calvin Klein Collection design Lawrence once wore on the red carpet?)

Naomi Watts: The actress swapped her gunmetal Armani Privé gown for an equally amazing dress, this one a disco-ready one-shoulder black and gold beaded Emilio Pucci number. We’d gladly borrow either from you, Naomi.

Zoë Saldana: Though Saldana‘s red carpet look was debatable (we’re still scratching our heads over that belt), everyone can agree that the star nailed it the second time around in a romantic ruffled black Givenchy dress. And we respect her for sticking to what she likes — floral necklines and intricate designs.

Anne Hathaway: One star who refused to get on board with the black-and-white trend — and we’re okay with that — is Hathaway, who slipped out of her pastel pink Prada number for a custom sky blue Saint Laurent confection with a sparkly gold neckline.

Olivia Munn: She may not have been nominated, but Munn was definitely out to steal a bit of the spotlight. She traded her ruby red regal creation (you’ve gotta see it from all angles!) for a sexier beaded blush Versace gown with a thigh-high slit.
