While the Oscar red carpet is filled with the awards' seasons most stunning gowns, the after parties are also a breeding ground for some enviable bridal inspiration. Changing into new designer looks, Hollywood's hottest gravitated towards two strikingly different aesthetics: minimalist white looks with clean lines, and glistening, heavily-embellished gowns fit for the glamour girl. Here, our favorite celebrity looks from last night's Oscar after parties.

Beyoncé in Stella McCartney
The Queen still reigned strong in this sleek Stella McCartney sheath. Minimalist brides would be wise to take note of this look, with figure-flattering darts, and just enough hint of Old Hollywood glamour thanks to her fur stole.

Solange Knowles in Naeem Khan
She may be Yoncé's sister (and wearing white as well!) but Solange went a completely different route with this heavily-embellished Naeem Khan number. Sophisticated with a high-neck and long sleeves, this look begs to be worn by a glamour girl getting married in the winter.

Lupita Nyong'o in Calvin Klein Collection
There's no doubt that Lupita owned the Oscars for the second year in a row — and her after-party ensemble is no exception! Sticking with Calvin Klein Collection throughout the entire night, the fashion superstar slipped out of her pearl-dotted halter and into a glam, gilded strapless sheath perfect for a reception dress or flashy bride looking to make a major statement.

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad
She may not have been nominated for anything, but J.Lo made the Oscars entirely her own, first with a princess-like Elie Saab ballgown, and next with this smoldering sheer Zuhair Murad stunner. If you want to grab everyone's attention come your big day, take notes from this equal parts sexy and shimmering sheath.

Natalie Portman in Dior
Like Queen Bey, this former Oscar winner went for clean lines and a snug fit. What makes this look even more elegant? Her dangling emerald earrings and softly-swept updo.

Naomi Watts in a Pantsuit
Naomi Watts is a red carpet vet for a good reason — she never disappoints! Slipping out of her edgy silver-and-black Armani Privé gown, Watts was effortlessly chic in this tailored blazer (with a serious deep V), slim-fit pant and waist-cinching belt. If you're searching for a rehearsal dinner outfit, look to this look for inspiration.
