Not being at the big show isn't any reason to dress down. In fact, some of the hottest looks in Hollywood aren't even at the Oscars right now.
Kim Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian, for instance, both went for dramatic lips—bright red for Kim and a deep plum for her sis—and flowing glamour-girl waves for Elton John's annual star-packed viewing party.
"Face brought to you by @joycebonelli @clydehairgod!!! These @lorraineschwartz jewels are giving me life!! And just wait until you see what @robzangardi and@marielwashere put together #Oscars #EltonJohn," promised Khloé via Instagram, along with a close-up pic of her dramatic pout.
Kim, meanwhile, was wearing Lorraine Schwartz jewels, but all we had was a glimpse of her ample cleavage, framed to perfection in a plunging red dress that matched her lips, before mom Kris Jenner proudly shared a pic of her and all three Kardashian sisters in their Oscar night finery.
And though we haven't seen much yet, we already thing it's a nice change-up from her favorite black and white! And she didn't just give her presence to the cause tonight: She donated $5,000 to the Elton John AIDS Foundation as well, her contribution flashing across the screen with the message "lots of love and support."
Scott Disick was there with Kourtney Kardashian, who opted for a more conservative, lady-tux look while sipping champagne and chatting with Khloé at their central table. Kim chatted with the many fellow party guests who approached her as Kris made the rounds, and a number of fans approached the sisters to take pictures—and they happily obliged.
The room was crammed with celebs and pals of the host and his hubby, David Furnish.
Britney Spears and boyfriend David Lucado, Robert De Niro, Ed Sheeran, Abby Lee Miller, John Waters, Colton Haynes (not wearing J.Law's Golden Globes dress), Chace Crawford, Jane Seymour, David and Yolanda Foster, Dustin Lance Black, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, Cheyenne Jackson and fiancé Jason Landau, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Jane Fonda, Ryan Kwanten, Alex Pettyfer, Eric McCormack, Jonathan Groff, Sheryl Crow, Cheryl Burke, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, Bellamy Young, Anne V, Heidi Klum, Ashley Greene, Donatella Versace and Josh Groban all made the guest list.
