The Vanity Fair post-Oscar party seemed like it was quite the bash.

A number of celebrities were seen living it up after watching The Artist bring home most of the major hardware at the 84th annual Academy Awards.

Let’s take a look at who was there.

Venus and Serena Williams

These two sisters, who have dominated women’s tennis since the late 1990’s, decided to make an appearance at the party.

They stopped to pose on the red carpet for a while and made small-talk with a number of celebs.

It doesn’t seem likely either of the two appears at the Indian Wells Masters on March 7 (they have boycotted since 2002), so they have plenty of time to party.

Sharapova was the other big-name tennis star to show up at the Vanity Fair party.

According to Alan Kyle at LiveTennisGuide.com, she was the third-best dressed at the event.

I guess that doesn’t make up for her second-place finish at the Australian Open.

Here’s a list of some other major celebs at the party:

David and Victoria Beckham

Soccer star and his household-name wife.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

Movie-star power couple.

Rachel Zoe

Fashion stylist.

Carrie Underwood

Paris Hilton


Cameron Diaz


Jennifer Lopez

Actress and singer.

Apparently, the event is so popular that guests are invited in shifts, according to The New York Times.

The Sunset Tower Hotel was the place to be and it’s no wonder that superstar tennis players were attending along with seemingly everyone else in Hollywood.
