Mark Seliger shares Oscar-night Vanity Fair portraits of Gaga, Winfrey, more

Mark Seliger has shared this year's batch of moody Oscar party pics and, as usual, they feature A-listers galore.

The award-winning photographer set up shop at Vanity Fair's annual bash — arguably the hottest ticket in town — and made beautiful portrait magic with celebrities in his exclusive photo booth. For the bulk of the party, the line for the booth was around 10 deep, and the results confirm that the wait was worth it.

Here's a selection of our favorite memorable compositions from the 2015 batch that Seliger and the magazine shared on Instagram on Monday. For all the pics, click here.
