Striking Celebrity Portraits Taken at Vanity Fair's Oscar Party 2016

For the third year in a row, Vanity Fair has teamed up with renowned photographer Mark Seliger and Instagram for a stunning set of celebrity portraits, each one taken at their coveted Oscar Party following the big awards ceremony. Celebrities from all corners of the industry–film, television, and music–gathered for a night of celebration, and took a moment to stand before Seliger's lens.

Each portrait presents an intimate shot of stars radiating an old Hollywood elegance. Like every other year, the annual event hosted a parade of big names, including newly awarded Oscar winners Brie Larson and Sam Smith. One after the other, these accomplished actors, musicians, and film makers entered the Instagram portrait studio to mingle and take part in this new photography tradition.

For more portraits, you can check in to both the photographer's and Vanity Fair's Instagram feeds which are continuing to unveil more photos from the big night.
