These After Party Looks Deserve Their Own Damn Oscars

I know it’s not PC to have a favourite child, but between the Oscars and the official afterparties, I’ll say it, I prefer the afterparties. The fashion is so much whackier and ends up being so much better because all the A-listers think our attention as waned post-show. But they’re wrong, as soon as Vanity Fair rolls out that red carpet, we’re primed and ready to go for some Academy Award-winning looks. And no surprises, Billy Porter is at the top of our list. Here are the best looks from the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscars Afterparty (oh and a few of the not so good).
