Oscars 2014 after party pictures: All the black, sultry gowns

The fashion parade doesn’t stop when the Oscars awards ceremony ends. For these stylish starlets, the afterparty is the perfect opportunity to debut some fabulous – and overwhelmingly, black – dress changes.

Kelly Osbourne looked pretty and playful in a black tea-length dress complete with a sheer top and a full, voluminous skirt made of layers of tulle.

The 29-year-old E! Fashion Police host, who had opted for a figure-hugging cream gown complete with golden embroidery for the 86th Academy Awards cermony, transformed her look and let her lavendar locks down as she headed to Elton John’s annual Oscars bash.

While Kate Hudson was another vision in white in a chic ivory Versace dress for her red-carpet appearance, the beautiful blonde relaxed into a black and nude number for the rest of the evening. Also bringing glamour to Hollywood’s starry night was Diane Kruger, in a black lacy dress, a sparkly black clutch and matching heels.

Another lady in black was Russian beauty Irina Shayk, who dazzled in a sequined floor-length number with a corset-style bodice.
