Because after the show it’s the after-party, and after the party it’s… time for bed? Never.

Of course, Nicki and the elder Kardashians sisters weren’t the only ones reaping the benefits of their fame for couture formal wear and an open bar. The friends mingled with a crowd made up of Oscar winners, reality stars, and locals hunting for some free appetizers, gaining important style perspective along the way.

We’re assuming it was a long night, but at least things ended well.

Comfort first, Nicki. Always.
