She might not have been in the running for a golden statuette  - yet - but Thuso Mbedu had the time of her life at Vanity Fair's Oscars after-party.

The 30-year-old looked all kinds of amazing in a gorgeous Gucci dress. She was styled by celebrity stylists Wayman + Micah, who also dressed Tiffany Haddish, Colman Domingo, and 'Avengers' star Tessa Thompson.

"A moment of silence for tonight’s look… What the dream team did tonight is crazy out of this world," Thuso wrote about her Oscars look.

The actress, who was born and raised in Pietermaritzburg, took to Instagram on Wednesday to share pictures and videos from the A-list party. 

Thuso was pictured chatting to Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland at the after-party. The pair took several pictures together. 

Thuso also bumped into South Africa's golden boy Trevor Noah.  "I remember talking to @trevornoah and thinking “noooor man, I don’t have to be speaking English with this guy”. Pretty sure I spoke 95% Zulu after that," she joked. 

'The Underground Railroad' star was also spotted on the dance floor with Will Smith - who was all smiles despite his drama with Chris Rock at the awards ceremony


Thuso has attended several Hollywood red carpet events in recent months, including the 2022 Spirit Awards where she won 'Best Female Performance'.
