A LOT of celebrities skipped the Oscars and headed straight to the after-parties yesterday – mainly the ones hosted by the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Vanity Fair.

Well, who can blame them? The after-parties are usually a lot more fun, don’t you agree? Same goes for the outfits too, yes?

Truth be told, we actually spotted more gorgeous dresses at the post-Oscar celebration than at the Oscars red carpet. Feast your eyes on these dresses:

1. Lily Collins in Zuhair Murad

Lily Collins is definitely making her mark as a style star in Hollywood. Whether she employs a stylist or not, the one thing we can certainly say about the girl is that she has been killing it on the red carpet.

Remember the frock she wore to the Costume Designer’s Guild Awards? That one was stunning. But guess what? She outdid herself at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party by wearing a purple Zuhair Murad that literally made our jaws drop:

2. Nina Dobrev in Naeem Khan

Nina Dobrev never disappoints on the red carpet. At the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party, the Vampire Diaries beauty wowed everyone with her patterned black and white number by Naeem Khan. A perfect 10, would you agree?

3. Miley Cyrus in Azzaro

Here at Your Next Dress, we always love a frock that’s prim on the front and ultra sexy on the back. Miley’s winter white Azzaro simply fit the bill, and she wore it with a wild pixie cut that gave her look a more rocker chick vibe. Seriously hot, yes?

4. Heidi Klum in Julien Macdonald

When it comes to sexy and risque dressing, Heidi Klum is a pro. And well, what can we say? She simply looked HOT in that gold beaded Julien Macdonald dress at the Elton John party.

Yep, she was sizzling alright. Can you say you’re a fan of her latest red carpet style?

5. Emma Roberts in Oscar de la Renta

Feminine and sweet – how can you not love Emma Roberts in her beaded Oscar de la Renta gown? The young starlet simply nailed the look to a T. Hair, make-up, jewelry, accessories – everything was spot-on:

6. Britney Spears in Michael Cinco

Dolls, Britney is back! First of all, we love the new brunette tresses. She (seriously) has never looked better.

And second of all, we love how she chose a more sophisticated and classy look this time by going for a black sequined Michael Cinco creation that came with a see-through detail on the back. Super fabulous, right?!

7. Miranda Kerr in Valentino

Miranda Kerr used her magic model powers to make the Valentino dress she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party look extra wonderful.

Seriously, the number wasn’t exactly what you’d call flattering, but she managed to pull it off with flair. Hats off to Miranda!

8. Anna Paquin in Alexander McQueen

We’re going to end Part 1 of our Oscar After-Parties post with the vampy look Anna Paquin put together at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Party.

Anna wore a very simple creation from Alexander McQueen, but somehow brought it to life with some dark make up and a whole lot of personality to go with:

And just in case you feel like channeling, say, Nina Dobrev in her patterned Naeem Khan dress, you can do so fabulously with these frocks from David Meister and Zac Posen:

No doubt, glittery gold, subtle champagne, and punches of black ruled the post-awards celebration, but a good few did veer away from the norm by wearing a color or two. Who do you think had the best after-party look of the night?

9. Kate Bosworth in Giambattista Valli

Ever the style star, Kate Bosworth did not disappoint when she attended the Vanity Fair Oscar After-Party. The beauty donned an exquisite creation by Giambattista Valli that was simply dreamy.

A gold Rauwolf clutch, Casadei sandals, and a braided updo finished her look and kept it on-point:

10. Jennifer Lawrence in Calvin Klein

If the Dior gown Jennifer wore to the Oscars red carpet blew you away, then the glittery gold Calvin Klein number she wore to the party will most likely make you swoon.

We actually cannot find the perfect words to describe just how good she looked in the dress because she simply rendered us speechless! Seriously, WOW is all we can say:

11. Selena Gomez in Versace

Selena Gomez sure sizzled in her Versace gown at the Vanity Fair Oscar After Party. The former Disney darling looked all grown-up and sexy in the corset-detailed number; we can hardly find any fault in the whole get-up. Can you?

12. Amy Adams in Oscar de la Renta

Amy Adams kept the drama going with another Oscar de la Renta gown at the after-party. But instead of layers and layers of tulle, the red-haired beauty switched to a glimmery gold piece that made her skin glow:

13. Naomi Watts in Emilio Pucci

Another celebrity who outdid herself at the party – Naomi Watts.

True, she sizzled in the asymmetric Armani Prive gown on the Oscars red carpet, but the black-gold sequined Pucci dress she wore to the post-awards celebration was nothing short of showstopping!

14. Diane Kruger in Giambattista Valli

One of the few ladies who can actually get away with wearing even the most unflattering silhouettes is Diane Kruger.

The German actress wore a black and white Giambattista Valli frock that was all poufy and printed. But get this, Diane wore it like a style star and she simply looked fabulous!

15. Elizabeth Banks in Alexander McQueen

One of the few ladies who opted to wear color the other night was Elizabeth Banks.

The actress chose a tangerine-hued strapless dress by Alexander McQueen that came with an insanely flattering silhouette. She styled it with a printed belt and an updo for polish:

16. Alessandra Ambrosio in Zuhair Murad

Another Zuhair Murad muse at the event was Alessandra Ambrosio. The supermodel chose an elaborate piece from the designer’s collection that featured gold embroidery and sheer insets.

17. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Valentino

Last but not least of our standout looks at the event was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

The supermodel opted for a frou-frou ruffled Valentino in pale lavender. Layers and layers of ruffles can be overwhelming, but Rosie managed to wear it like a pro and came out stunning:
