Like a veritable Where's Waldo book of fabulous A-listers, the Vanity Fair Oscar Party certainly didn't seem understated, despite this year's downsizing of venue (from Morton's to the Sunset Tower) and guest list . Just about all of Sunday night's beauties and beaus did a lovely job of strutting their stuff, schmoozing, and avoiding their exes at the event (looks like Brad and Angelina graciously conceded their red-carpet throne to John and Jen for the night...) While we wish we could've scored an invite, we're just as content flipping through the photos from our perch here in New York. Enjoy!
