Just minutes away from the Dolby Theatre, where the 85th Academy Awards were held, there was another celebration going on—InStyle‘s annual Oscar viewing party! The guest list at BOA Steakhouse in West Hollywood included Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance, Justin Mikita (both in Hugo Boss), Kat Graham (in Dolce & Gabbana), Jessica Szohr (in Reformation), and more, snacking on steak sandwiches and sipping Beluga Noble Vodka mixed drinks to watch all the action, both fashion and film. One very big fan of Best Actress winner Jennifer Lawrence also swung by, Hunger Games co-star Alexander Ludwig. “I was blown away, but I totally expected it. She, of all people, deserved it,” said Ludwig (in Armani), who stood up and cheered as soon as he heard her name. “She’s one of the most classy and incredible, exceptional people I’ve ever met. I’m so happy for her. The second I heard her name, I texted her!” And he also had a winning moment himself, predicting enough right answers for InStyle‘s Academy Awards ballot contest to take home the grand prize, a luxury stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
