Watch: Will Smith arrives at Vanity Fair party after slapping Chris Rock during Oscars ceremony
Will Smith appeared to be all smiles on the Vanity Fair red carpet as he arrived for the Oscars after-party, despite a previous altercation with comedian and host Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards ceremony.
The whole Smith family – including son Trey Smith, wife Jada Pinkett Smith, and their children Jaden and Willow Smith – appeared to show a united front following the Fresh Prince of Bel Air actor’s altercation with Chris Rock earlier in the evening as the younger members of the famous family joined Will and Jada for the glamorous after party.
The youngest Smith, 21-year-old Willow, who also wears her hair shaven short like her mother, wore a black cut-out look and accessorised with gloves and sunglasses.
Jaden, 23, opted for a sunrise-esque orange and purple suit, with a cropped jacket and matching tie.
Earlier in the evening, Smith was seen to spontaneously storm the stage and hit Chris Rock in the face after the comedian made a joke about his wife's short haircut, comparing her shaved hairstyle to Demi Moore's buzzcut in G.I. Jane.
The incident threw the ceremony into chaos, just before Smith was awarded the Best Actor gong for his role as Richard Williams in King Richard.
Pinkett Smith, who changed into a gold sequinned gown with a matching gilded shawl for the after party event, has previously opened up about her struggles with alopecia, which has led her to keeping her hair in a short, shaven style.

Smith was later seen to be dancing and singing along to his 1998 hit Gettin Jiggy Wit It with his Academy award statuette at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party, seemingly brushing off the events of earlier in the evening.
Whilst it is yet to be seen whether Smith and Chris Rock, 57, have made amends after the ceremony, other actors came out to support the actor after his tearful apology and acceptance speech for the Best Actor gong.
After the TV cameras cut, Smith was seen speaking with Denzel Washington, who Smith said during his speech had told him: “...at your highest moment, be careful, that's when the devil comes for you”.
Fellow actor Bradley Cooper was also seen comforting Smith following the segment presented by Chris Rock.

Smith’s youngest son, Jaden, took to Twitter as the incident unfolded, and wrote:“And That’s How We Do It”, seemingly in reference to the on-stage altercation between the two stars.
