Oscars 2013: The After Parties (PICS)

They've walked down the red carpet, sat through a bum-numbing ceremony, celebrated (and commiserated) their awards, and after host Seth MacFarlane closed the ceremony, it was time for the stars of the 2013 Oscars to really let their hair down at the after show parties.

As ever, there were three lavish bashes for them to choose from - the Vanity Fair party, the Governor's Ball and Elton John's annual AIDS Foundation party.

A new-look Britney Spears and a pregnant Kim Kardashian were the guests of honour at Elton's bash, along with Miley Cyrus and a flesh-flashing Heidi Klum. Emeli Sande was also on hand to provide the entertainment (is there anything she DOESN'T perform at?).

Anne Hathaway celebrated her Best Supporting Actress win at the Vanity Fair party, along with Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, who were putting on a show of unity on the red carpet.
