Hollywood loves a costume change. Maybe that’s why so many stars decide to wear a second look to go from the 2023 Oscars to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, because one ensemble isn’t enough for such an important event—and two red carpets deserve two different looks. For many, the outfit change is more than putting on a brand new dress or slipping into a different suit, it’s a total transformation and a welcome opportunity to take style risks. It’s at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party where guests can let their hair down (or tie it up, pin it back, or tease it out), switch up their makeup, and try out the latest trends, sometimes pulling inspiration straight from the runway.
Below, a look at the unbelievable transformations that take place between the Oscars and arriving at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
