The Vanity Fair Oscars after-party is always the place to see and be seen, and last evening’s event at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills, Calif., did not disappoint. 

After the 96th annual Academy Awards wrapped up on March 10, A-listers made their outfit changes and posed for more red carpet photos before heading into the hottest after-party in town, hosted by Vanity Fair editor in chief Radhika Jones. 

And while everyone from two-time Oscar winners Emma Stone and Billie Eilish to former SI Swimsuit cover models Ciara and Lily Aldridge were in attendance, below we’re focusing on a few barely-there looks that immediately drew our attention.

The two-time SI Swimsuit model donned a stunning white sculptural gown by French fashion label Jacquemus. The floor-length backless number featured a front panel that merely skimmed the 32-year-old’s front and offered up some major side boob.

No stranger to freeing the nipple, the 28-year-old Dune actress did just that in a figure-hugging dress with a sheer top. The midi-length number from Jean Paul Gaultier’s haute couture collection featured a peplum waist and a small train.

The Grammy nominated SI Swimsuit star turned heads in a completely sheer, revealing ensemble. The backless Fendi couture gown reached the floor, but otherwise left little to the imagination. The 30-year-old opted for a matching thong underneath and accessorized with earrings that mimicked the texture of her designer gown.

Laverne Cox

The 51-year-old actress opted for old Hollywood glamour for the main event, but switched things up with a futuristic look for the after-party. Cox donned a long-sleeved underboob-baring crop top, paired with a split-waist skirt with three-dimensional clear panels at the hip cut-outs.
