While nominees packed out the Dolby Theater for the 85th annual Academy Awards, a number of celebs took to a star-studded viewing party in Los Angeles. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Kim Kardashian and others attended Elton John’s Academy Awards viewing party at Los Angeles’ Pacific Design Center. While there they posed for pictures and shared snaps of the event on social media.

Nicki Minaj was a standout of the evening as she debuted a new blonde ‘do and minimal makeup offset by her Pink Friday for M.A.C. lipstick. She also donned a white Alexander McQueen dress and strappy gold sandals. Kim Kardashian, who also wore white alongside Miley Cyrus and Kelly Osbourne, sported her very visible baby bump and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
