The 91st annual Academy Awards were a night to remember, but the excitement continued even after the lights at the Dolby Theater turned off. There were a slew of afterparties around Los Angeles that kicked off at the end of the biggest night in Hollywood — and stars totally let loose.
Vanity Fair hosted its annual post-Oscars bash at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills on Sunday, February 24, but the fun continued well into the early hours of Monday, February 25. Us Weekly had eyewitnesses inside the party and watched as celebrities including Lady Gaga, Jason Momoa, Heidi Klum and Idris Elba sipped on cocktails, caught up with old friends and danced the night away during the event.
