Day three of my Oscars 2018 coverage – are you still with me? Or are you totally done with the award season red carpet? I promise this is the last one, but it is a good one, my favourite looks from the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, which sometimes I find is even better than the main event as the celebs can be a little be more adventurous, and I have some gorgeous looks for you – from Gal Gadot to Sienna Miller and my new style crush, Eiza Gonzalez who apparently you all love from your social media comments.
