After the show is the afterparty, and the Oscars had the mother of all afterparties. Vanity Fair hosted the biggest post-show events of the night, with a star-studded guest list of the top names in film, music, and fashion. Many celebrities turned heads, but it was Ciara who had people breaking their necks in her after party gown.
Despite sporting a less-than-pleased expression after losing The Best Supporting Actress nomination, Angela Bassett dusted herself off and stepped back out last night for the Vanity Fairs event. There, the Queen of Wakanda sported a red Moschino pantsuit and a big smile. Bassett had the entire support of black Twitter and a wonderful viral moment when Michael B. Jordan and Jonathan Majors shouted her out onstage, saying, “Hi Auntie.”
Cardi B was also in attendance and sporting red. The “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker is said to have been wearing $16 million of Azature diamonds and rocked a red veil and long train. Her “W.A.P” collaborator Megan Thee Stallion also stepped out. It’s been one of her first appearances since winning her case against Tory Lanez. She sported a black strapless gown, a lace bustier inset, trumpet hem, and Gismondi 1754 jewels. She paired this with a big curly hairdo.
One of the stars of the evening was not even in an Oscar-nominated film. It was pop/R&B starlet Ciara. The “1, 2 Step” hitmaker has become a poster woman for fashion in the latter half of her career and took the Vanity Fair red carpet as her own personal runway. Sporting a sleek black bob, Ciara’s sparkly outfit by Dundas left everything to the imagination. It tastefully shielded her top region while a g-string was all that kept her lower half from being exposed. She paired this with long black gloves and heels. Husband, Russell Wilson, stood beside her in a black suit.
The internet lost their minds and immediately rushed to compliment the mother of three on her body and outfit. “Ciara showed up at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, looking dazzling in sheer sequin gown alongside NFL Quarterback husband Russell Wilson,” said one blog. “MRS WILSON, IF YA NASTY | Ciara is showing all the way off at the Vanity Fair 2023 #Oscars after party!” said another.
Over on her page, she shared a video collage of the fit, showing her at home getting ready, as well as some photos from her outside. Ciara playfully eats a burger, shields her breasts, and poses it up with Megan Thee Stallion. Some fans felt the mom was being too risque with her ensemble. “I mean…. u have a daughter, ur beautiful, everyone knows, but u were naked,” said one fan. “Only wish money can buy class and dignity! 🙏🏼,” said another.

“If her husband is fine with it, that’s all approval that truly matters!” reasoned one person. CiCi is clearly in a nude era because only a day before, she rocked another sheer outfit with the caption, “One of those Nights 🤎🤟🏽”
