Every year Vanity Fair brings together the brightest stars of the film world for the its annual Hollywood Issue, but it's the magazine's Oscar Party where the magic really happens. On Sunday night Hollywood's leading ladies and gents let their hair down following the ceremony and contributing photographer Mark Seliger captured the action in a series of intimate portraits featuring the likes of Lupita Nyong'o, Sienna Miller and Samuel L. Jackson.
Best supporting actress winner Lupita, who changed from Prada to Miu Miu dress for the bash, is seen holding her Oscar with her head bowed down, while a pregnant Kerry Washington stands with her hands clasping her bump. Lady Gaga enjoyed a fashion moment with actor Nolan Funk and designer Donatella Versace and How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris demonstrated how flexible he is by leg kicking in a suit.
Some of our favourite portraits featured Vanity Fair Oscar Party couples including Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson (adorable as usual), Mad Men's Jon Hamm and his partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Oscar host Ellen Degeneres and her wife Portia de Rossi and director Judd Apatow and his actress other half Leslie Mann.
In contrast to the glitz and glamour of the occasion the A-list subjects were given a selection of everyday props to work with in the custom-built studio, which adjoined the Vanity Fair Oscar Party space. These rustic objects included stepladders, crates and workbenches, which encouraged some comedy poses. Seliger explained, "We're aiming to capture a little of the glamour of Oscar night in a timeless yet modern and accessible way."
The magazine has also just released its annual snaps from the Vanity Fair photo booth and the general theme of the celebrity pictures? Just being plain adorable with your significant other.
