In the spirit of the age-old saying, “better late than never,” we’re finally posting up our favorites from the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. If we had to choose whether to post only red carpet photos from the actual ceremony or photos from the various after-parties following the awards show, I’d obviously choose the latter.
The overall theme of the outfits can be summed up with the statement “Look, but don’t touch—unless your name is Leonardo DiCaprio.” I know a lot of chicks probably wouldn’t admit it to it, but with the amount of pre- and post-buzz surrounding that guy’s Best Actor Academy Award, he could’ve seriously gone home with any number of women last night. We’re pretty sure he didn’t follow through, but we’re about 110% sure some of his close friends cleaned up with all the chicks who had lofty aspirations of texting all their friends the sentence, “I had sex with Leo the night he won the Oscar for Best Actor.”

Looks like somebody snuck out of the house while her mom was busy making dinner in the kitchen! The beautiful Nickelodeon starlet Victoria Justice was seen at LoveGold’s celebration of jeweler Fred Leighton cocktail party last night held at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood. It’s a pity Harmony Korine couldn’t convince Victoria’s parents to let their daughter star in his upcoming “Spring Breakers” film. I’m sure it would’ve done wonders for her career as she slowly gets ready to transition from kiddy roles to older roles. If Victoria waits too long, she’ll miss the train & then will have to resort to extreme measures down the road (i.e. risque photos on FB & Twitter, leaked nude pics from cell phone or God forbid, a sex tape), so it’s definitely in her best interest to start the transition early.
As for LoveGold, they seem like a luxury jewelry stalking site. According to their official website, which doesn’t fully launch until the spring, their intentions are very clear: “We seek out the world’s most beautiful gold jewellery, the designers creating it and the people wearing it.”
Other attendees included Victoria’s 16-year-old sister Madison, who celebrates her 17th birthday sometime this May. Sanaa Lathan was Sanaa Lathan was also a standout for a couple delicious reasons, as well as Andie MacDowell’s hot daughter Rainey Qualley, who looked really sexy.

Despite Whitney Houston’s death yesterday afternoon at the Beverly Hilton, the pre-Grammy festivities rolled on—even at the very hotel the late pop superstar was found dead (inside her hotel room bathtub). Aside from the drugged-out lifestyle over the past decade, for someone to go from the armpit of America’s inner city (Newark, NJ) and call it quits inside the Beverly Hilton, that’s not too bad, right?
I gotta admit, there were some big names missing on the red carpet, but that’s completely acceptable considering the circumstances. Here’s a selection of notable attendees at last night’s pre-Grammy gala thrown by Clive Davis & the Recording Academy. The Beverly Hilton was awfully busy last night, with the fourth floor eerily buzzing with a police investigation and the hotel’s main hall in party-mode celebrating not only tonight’s Grammy Awards, but also Whitney Houston’s life & music career.
