Our American counterparts may well have claimed the lion’s share of the accolades at the 95th annual Academy Awards on Sunday evening, but Great Britain ensured it was well represented – and well appointed – at the ensuing Vanity Fair Oscars party.
Leading a Brit heavy guest list at Beverly Hills venue Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Cara Delevingne looked stunning in an ethereal floor length gown as she posed for an obligatory round of photos.
The model and actress, 30, emphatically drew a line under a turbulent two year period with arguably her most glamorous public appearance since confirming she entered residential rehabilitation in 2022 to combat substance and alcohol dependency.
She was joined by Lily James, who inevitably commanded attention in a sweeping powder pink gown with fringed detailing as she greeted onlookers outside the venue.
With an off-the-shoulder detail, the evening dress ensured Lily, 33, stood out despite not being nominated in any of this year’s categories.
Opting for limited accessories and tastefully applied make-up selected from a natural colour palette, the actress looked every inch the graceful Hollywood star as she mingled with a star-studded guest list at the celebratory event.
Elsewhere Sienna Miller claimed her own share of the spotlight in a tasteful sleeveless evening gown with a delicate floral print detail.
The model and actress, 41, added to her look with an understated handbag, while statement earrings and generously applied make-up rounded off her latest red carpet appearance.
Everything Everywhere All at Once was the big winner at the Oscars on Sunday taking home seven awards.
The American absurdist action comedy-drama film was the biggest winner of the night at the event featuring a star-studded red carpet as it earned Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Editing, and Best Original screenplay at the gala event held at Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
The movie’s stars Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quan, took home the Leading Actress and Supporting Actress and Actor awards respectively.
In her acceptance speech, Michelle hailed her win as a ‘beacon of hope and possibilities’ for Asian people and urged those watching at home to ‘dream big’.
She said: ‘For all the little boys and girls who look like me watching tonight. This is the beacon of hope and possibilities. This is proof to dream big and dreams do come true.
‘Ladies, don’t let anybody tell you you are past your prime. Never give up…
‘Thank you to the Academy, this is history in the making, thank you.’
The film beat out quite the field including: All Quiet on the Western Front, Avatar: The Way of Water, The Banshees of Inisherin, Elvis, The Fabelmans, TÁR, Top Gun: Maverick, Triangle of Sadness, and Women Talking.
Meanwhile, Best Actor in a Leading Role went to Brendan Fraser, who was tearful as he picked up his prize for his work on The Whale.
He said: ‘So this is what the multiverse looks like. I thank the Academy for this honour and our studio A24 for making such a bold film.
‘I’m grateful to Darren Aronofsky for throwing me a creative lifeline and hauling me aboard the good ship ‘The Whale’. It was written by Samuel D. Hunter who is our lighthouse.’
German war movie All Quiet on the Western Front also had a successful evening, taking home four of the prizes it was nominated for, Best International Feature Film, Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Production Design.
This year’s Academy Awards – which were hosted by Jimmy Kimmel – saw all the nominated tracks for Best Original Song performed, but the accolade went to Naatu Naatu from RRR.
