San Francisco co-starred with Tokyo as one-half of a futuristic mashup city in Big Hero 6 —last night's Best Animated Feature Oscar winner— but that wasn't the SF's only win for the night. Four Bay Area natives proved that actors who are lucky enough to pass through our city leave with major style points.

Both Jamie Chung and Jessica Chastain (who's actually from Sacramento, but got her start acting in SF) rocked multiple dresses last night, while Leslie Mann stuck with a single, sleek white suit for the Vanity Fair party. Then there was Clint Eastwood— actor, writer, director, former mayor of Carmel, and all-around Hollywood badass— who was as dapper as ever in a tuxedo. (The guy is 84, and he still made it a late night at the after-party. Rock. Star.)
