After winning her Oscar for The Black Swan, Natalie Portman feasted – and the star was in good company.

Decamping to the Governors Ball within the Hollywood and Highland complex immediately after Sunday's ceremony at the Kodak Theatre, the Best Actress enjoyed a spread prepared by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck. On the menu: a three-course dinner of salad, Dover sole and lemon cheesecake.

Guests, including Justin Timberlake, Best Supporting Actor winner Christian Bale and Russell Brand, also enjoyed passed appetizers that included smoked salmon Oscar flatbread, tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, mini cheeseburgers, black truffle pizza, crispy rice and taro root tacos. There were also food stations with sushi and shellfish, a dessert bar – plus Moet & Chandon champagne.





As for Oscar co-host Anne Hathaway, she told PEOPLE at the party that her first priority was finding some nourishment. "First things first," she said. "I have to get something to eat. I'm starving!"

Meanwhile, at the Pacific Design Center, stars like Vanessa Hudgens, Chace Crawford, Glee's Chris Colfer and more assembled for Elton John's annual AIDS Foundation viewing party.

While Florence Welch (of Florence + the Machine) provided the entertainment, Chef Ludo Lefebvre designed the menu. Guests noshed on a four-course meal made up of goat cheese soup, red and yellow beet salad, sole with spinach puree and coconut polenta and beef tenderloin and local greens.

For dessert? An apple tart.

After the meal, guests took part in an auction before Welch took to the stage at 10 p.m. to perform her hits and even share the stage with John, who sang a duet with her of his classic "Tiny Dancer."

After the concert, many guests, including Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale, kicked off their shoes and danced up a storm.

But Heidi Klum and hubby Seal opted for a sweet ending to their night: The model picked up a heart-shaped marzipan chocolate ... while Seal opted for a white chocolate truffle at the Godiva station.
