Gabrielle Union’s Valentino was one of the best looks of Oscar night

Stars are seen at the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

For my money, Gabrielle Union was one of the best-dressed women on Oscar night, and she didn’t even attend the Oscars. Gabrielle just did the parties. She wore this absolutely stunning Valentino gown in a reddish pumpkin shade which 100% works because of her skin, body and hair. Gabrielle recently chopped her hair off and OMG does this choppy cut look cute. Hands down, one of my favorite looks.

I stan Liberty Ross. She dumped a cheating husband and landed a billionaire. She and Jimmy Iovine attend the VF party every year. Love her.

Tiffany Haddish in Rami Kadi. This is a glorious mess and she comes close to making it work.

Selma Blair in Ralph & Russo, walking her first big red carpet since her MS diagnosis. She walked with a cane and she got quite emotional on the carpet. Great dress!

Lupita Nyong’o in Oscar De La Renta -weirdly, I don’t think she actually attended the Oscars, she just did the afterparties? Which is fine, I guess. Her dress was cute!

    Liberty looks like she’s wearing a bathrobe

    Gabrielle ‘s dress is gorgeous! She looks fabulous.
    I saw some really lovely photos of Selma, glad she was able to go.

    • ByTheSea says:

      The color is beautiful and flattering, but the dress looks cheap to me. Satin has a way of doing that.

      • Josephine says:

        Satin can be tricky but I actually thought this was a good one – the fabric looks thick and luxurious. She was definitely my favorite of the night, and I love her hair.

    • Kitten says:

      She looks unbelievable.

      I didn’t know Selma had MS. As debilitating as a disease like MS is, there is still hope that she can slow the progression and live a fairly normal life. She strikes me as very strong.

      Gabriella’s dress looked cheap to me but loved her hair. Selma was gorgeous.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Gabrielle is so dang beautiful. No dress ever made could compete with that amazing face! Sooooo gorgeous.

  3. Sayrah says:

    Gabrielle is stunning.

    • Enny says:

      She really is, but I will never be able to forgive her for that haircut, because someone said it made her look like Kris Jenner and now I can’t unsee it. 😩

      • Avamae says:

        She does not look like the Jenner Mom!

        She has a movable face!
        She has a normal mimic!

        The back of her dress is not good though.

        Selma Blair looked wonderful.

        This fluffy white thing of Ms Lupita looks like a frizzy cotton ball.

        It’s a wig

    Selma Blair’s moment was wonderful and she looked fabulous. Illness and disability are a part of life and the more we can normalize that and remove the stigma the better. What can anyone do but wish her well!

    • OriginalLala says:

      she is really open about her struggles with MS – I have some friends with it and I am grateful that she is shining a light on this terrible illness. Too many suffer in silence

    • Natalia says:

      Selma looks amazing. Great dress and styling. I see a great character in a movie.

      Gabrielle Union: OMG. Amazing. I wish I could wear my hair like that. I didn’t think of Kris Jenner when I saw the hair. I just thought G looked amazing in that cut.

  5. Coz' says:

    Lupita attended the Oscars but didn’t walk the red carpet.
    Love Gabrielle Union new hair cut!

  6. blueb says:

    I swear that everyone saved their best looks for the after parties… There was not one look that grabbed my attention on the red carpet. It was just kind of blah but I am loving the party dresses!

    • Esmom says:

      I agree. I can’t believe how much better the after party dresses were. Although I smiled to see Charlize not change dresses for the VF party. It does strike me as extra to have to deal with two major looks in the span of a few hours.

  7. Becks1 says:

    Gabrielle looks gorgeous. I love that dress on her.

  8. tuille says:

    Gabrielle looked terrific.
    Liberty wore my favorite bathrobe!
    I’m sorry Selma or anyone has MS but I still remember the time she nearly ran over me in the Malibu Country Market parking lot then flipped me the bird because she had to brake for a pedestrian.

  9. Jess says:

    Love Lupita’s and Gabrielle’s dresses. But my best dressed is Gemma Chan. Love her pink dress.

    • Pandy says:

      Agree re Gemma’s dress being my favourite too … but Gabrielle’s dress is a close second. She looks fantastic! I also really like Selma’s dress, so pretty. Lupita’s is just okay to me. Not a big fan of the hi/low look although I normally like fuzzy duckling fabrics.

  10. Esmom says:

    I’m not a fan of satin or the loose-is cut of the bodice but damn if Gabrielle doesn’t make it work. I really liked Lupita’s look, too.

    I swear I have seen Selma’s dress before, just in a solid color and not by Ralph and Russo. Hmm.

    Tiffany’s dress gives me serious car wash vibes. Yuck.

  11. Case says:

    The after party dresses were soooo much better than the dresses for the ceremony. This year’s actual red carpet was pretty dull, but these dresses are great!

  12. Veronica S. says:

    Honestly, I like most of these dresses. They work for the women wearing them. Lupita Nyong’o is stunning and always looks like she’s having fun with fashion. Houses must love dressing her.

  13. velourazure says:

    Oh, Lupita….. nooooooo.

  14. savu says:

    Selma Blair’s dress was my favorite of the night! Fit her like a glove, the colorblocking was cool, and THAT CAPE. Add on top of that how she’s owning that cane and going for it, it felt like such a special moment. I’ve never known much about her, but she’s grown on me so much.

  15. Maxine says:

    I love Gabrielle Union she is one of my favorite actresses, but there is something about this dress I hate. I love to color on her and it was made well (are those side pockets?) But maybe it the way the lights hit the dress it just throws me off. Selma Blair I loved her looked, the cane brought it together to give it almost a regal look. She looked great. Tiffany Hadish I just cant with the dress. It looks like a christmas candy cane gone wrong! Lupita Nyong’o dress was super cute! The cut and design was perfect and she looked great.

    My favorite of the night–hands down is Julia Roberts! My favorite dress ever!! My next favorite is Constance Wu in the yellow confection! Just gorgeous!
