If it wasn't all-over sequins or bold colour that caught our eye on last night's after party attendees, it was the sultry sheer detailing that drew us in. With subtle sex appeal, sheer fabrications left just a little to the imagination on necklines and hemlines alike. While the feel from Kate Bosworth's Prabal Gurung confection, Zoe Saldana's Marios Schwab, and Ginnifer Goodwin's Peter Som gowns are on the moodier side of the sartorial spectrum, the feel is a touch softer and ethereal in white, and all-out sexy in red finishes. In each case, sheer details play up the drama of the dress with see-through illusion that's eye-catching without being OTT.

We were hoping Zoe Saldana would make an Oscar-night appearance — and we just got what we wished for thanks to Vanity Fair's after party. Equal parts vampy and vintage-inspired, Zoe opted for a Marios Schwab sheer-skirted black satin gown that gets a dose of sweetness via a jewelled collar (a popular choice last night) and a hint of sexy via see-through insets. A bold croc clutch complete her awards-night style. Do you love it?
You can trust Diane Kruger to make a styled arrival — and her appearance at last night's Vanity Fair Oscar fête didn't disappoint. Diane's elegant-cum-sultry red Calvin Klein gown gets a jolt of sexy via a plunging neckline and a peek at her pretty lace bralette, while she adds interest with a gold box clutch and a pair of intricate diamond drop earrings. Diane doesn't often shy away from making a statement on the red carpet, and we think this is a risk that's paid off in spades. Do you agree?
