Mar 4 2014 - 6:45am

The Oscars red carpet may have more than a few sartorial sights to see [1], but don't think the parade of dresses is over just because the last award has been announced. With an evening full of afterparties, you can rest assured that the best is yet to come. And while our favorite stars may have chosen sophisticated and sexy gowns [2] for the show, some of the most daring dresses of all turned up after hours. While stars such as Amy Adams [3], Reese Witherspoon [4], and none other than Lupita Nyong'o opted for more delicate, classic numbers, there were more than a few who pushed the boundaries — and necklines — to see just how showstopping an afterparty dress can be!

Lupita Nyong'o

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o swapped her light blue Prada gown [5] for a seafoam green Miu Miu [6] number at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. She accessorized with a pair of matching heels and a Prada [7] clutch.

Sienna Miller

At the Vanity Fair Oscars party, Sienna Miller [8] showed that an arm party can extend all the way past the elbow. Her red bustier gown is from the Alexander McQueen [9] Spring 2014 collection.
