Vanity Fair: Oscar Night Sessions: A Decade of Portraits from the After-Party Hardcover – November 14, 2023 by Mark Seliger (Photographer), Alan Cumming (Afterword), Radhika Jones (Foreword). Vanity Fair: Oscar Night Sessions presents 10 years of luminous photographic portraits of Hollywood celebrities who attended the most exclusive and glamorous after-party of the year in a gorgeous volume.

This book gathers the best of these portraits, along with a foreword by Vanity Fair editor in chief Radhika Jones and an afterword by actor Alan Cumming, who sheds light on what it’s like to be in front of Seliger’s lens on the night of nights.
With some 200 color portraits, featuring Oscar-winning actors, directors, and musicians, Hollywood power couples, and luminaries of all stripes, including Lady Gaga, Robert De Niro, Spike Lee, Regina King, Jessica Chastain, Taika Waititi, Timothée Chalamet, Donald Glover, and many more, this over-the-top volume will delight anyone interested in exquisite photography and Hollywood glamour.
