The Oscars marks the end of awards season, and is one of the most hotly anticipated events of the red carpet calendar.
But it is not just the ceremony itself that commands attention, and one of the most popular parties on the night is the Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.
Elton first held the do in 1993, and it has gone on to become one of the most high-profile Oscar parties in Hollywood – while also having raised more than $200 million for HIV/AIDS prevention since its inception.
A list names push for a ticket, and this year was no exception, with Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum and Joan Collins all in attendance.
A red carpet means a host of couture gowns – but many celebrities made fashion faux pas while attending the bash.
Miley Cyrus led the style disasters in a hot pink and silver embellished gown which had an 80s feel.
She paired the extravagant dress with a classic Hollywood waved hairstyle and diamond star earrings.
But Miley was not alone with the style errors, and Lea Michele also did not look her best.
The Glee star left very little to the imagination in a black and gold dress which had a deep, wide v neck that left her breasts nearly spilling out.
It didn’t end there, as the gown was slashed right up the thigh, showing plenty of leg.
More covered up but looking no less disastrous was Sofia Richie, 19, who wore a silver strapless gown.
The dress had a fitted bodice and sheer skirt, onto which was embroidered a forest scene in silver sequins.
Red carpets across LA fell victim to style disasters, and none more so than the Oscars themselves.
Many women wore as little as possible in an apparent attempt to grab attention, while others simply chose ugly dresses that saw them join the worst dressed list.
Dame Helen Mirren even suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction as she arrived at the Oscars.
The Vanity Fair Oscars party also had its fair share of fashion fails, with everything from too much flesh to blinding colour choices.
