Kendall Jenner and Dad Caitlyn Jenner Embrace at Vanity Fair Oscars Party
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars kept up with the Oscars
Only the Kardashians would have a family reunion at Hollywood’s most glamorous night.
Each were dressed to the nines for the occasion. Caitlyn, 69, wore a short gold sequin dress with flowing sleeves. She paired the look white pumps, and kept her brown locks down.
Daughter Kendall, 23, also wore her hair down in flowing beach curls — and like her dad, showed some leg in a sequin number. Her outfit featured a high-cut leotard with fringe details on her hips, and long panels of sequin fabric covering her front and rear. The gown’s top was backless, and featured a cutout detail that highlighted Kendall’s fit frame. She added long matching earrings top it off, and black strappy sandals.
Other celebrities to walk the carpet included Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Joe Manganiello, Sofia Vergara, Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Selma Blair, America Ferrera, Jon Hamm, Gabrielle Union, Shonda Rhimes, Ashlee Simpson, Evan Ross, Diana Ross and Tracee Ellis Ross.
Joining Caitlyn at the event was pal Sophia Hutchins, who wore a sheer black long-sleeve mermaid-cut gown over a fitted lace black bodysuit. The 22-year-old kept her long blonde hair off her face in a ponytail.
Earlier in the evening, Caitlyn and Hutchins watched the 91st annual Academy Awards at the 27th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party (sponsored by IMDb and Neuro Drinks) in West Hollywood, where they posed together on the red carpet and were photographed inside sitting next to each other.
In addition to Kendall, Caitlyn — who publicly came out as transgender in 2015 — is dad to son Burt, 40, and daughter Cassandra, 38, with ex-wife Chrystie Crownover; sons Brandon, 37, and Brody, 35, with ex-wife Linda Thompson; and daughter Kylie, 21, (who, like Kendall, he shares with ex-wife Kris Jenner).
Caitlyn also helped raise Kris’ children Kourtney Kardashian, 39, Kim Kardashian West, 38, and Khloé Kardashian, 34, and Rob Kardashian, 31. However, the Olympian grew estranged from her stepchildren after penning her 2017 memoir, which caused a rift in the family because Caitlyn claimed that Kris knew more about her identity struggles than she says she did.
All that seems to be in the past now. During a January appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the Kardashian sisters revealed that they’ve patched things up with Caitlyn — and even spent the holidays with her.
“Yeah, we saw her on Christmas Eve,” Kim said. Kourtney added, “I saw her on Christmas.”
“It’s like, new year, drama free. That’s like our motto this year,” said Kim, with Khloé noting, “Let go and let’s just be in love.”
Back in December, Caitlyn appeared on WE tv’s Real Love: Relationship Reality TV’s Past, Present & Future panel in Los Angeles, where she said she was proud of all of her kids — and that her relationship “is still good with all of them.”“It’s kind of amazing to me,” she said, reflecting on the family’s long-running E! show, of which she’s no longer a part. “Take Kimberly. She has been doing this show for like, 12 or 13 years now and has stayed relevant for that entire time. Thirteen years of staying relevant. … That’s amazing to me that she has stayed relevant.”
“Kimberly has been out there and she’s extremely smart — all my kids [are],” Caitlyn continued. “I have 10 kids and 14 grandchildren. All my kids have done so extremely well. The ones you don’t even see on camera are very successful. I’m so proud of my family. … They are very entrepreneurial. All of them. They’ve done very well for themselves. They’ve used their celebrity status and the show to build businesses to be out there in the marketplace.”
