We like to think of the Oscars as the classiest of all possible nights, and nothing about last night seems classier than a star-studded party hosted by Vanity Fair. So of course the organizers hired an accomplished Rolling Stone photographer to take portraits for Instagram (the classiest selfie network).

"We're aiming to capture a little of the glamour of Oscar night in a timeless yet modern and accessible way," the photographer, Mark Seliger, said in a statement. Because even the beautiful people need filters.


Lupita Nyong'o didn't let go of her Oscar all night, because it was glued to her hand.
