Oscars winner Anne Hathaway is always a force to be reckoned with on the red carpet. From her shining Gucci moment at the 2014 Academy Awards to looking like an actual award in an Oscar de la Renta gown, she always finds her way onto a best dressed list.

But this year Hathaway and her growing baby bump skipped the red carpet and headed straight to the after-parties. The mom-to-be posted an adorable Instagram before the show featuring her bump and her coveted Academy Award. “Favorite Oscar day ever. Good luck to everyone at the show!” she captioned the post.

But luckily the pregnant star didn’t skip the awards all together: She made an appearance at the Vanity Fair after-party with her husband, Adam Shulman.

Hathaway showed off her bump in a black gown with mesh sleeves and metallic studs. The expectant star completed the look with Irene Neuwirth earrings, an elegant updo, and her classic black eyeliner.

While we missed the star on the red carpet, we’re loving this elegant gown on the soon-to-be new mom. Go inside Oscar night's hottest parties with a look through our gallery.
