Sure there were plenty of professional photographers on hand, but did you know Kelly Preston, Norah Jones and Quvenzhané Wallis snapped personal photos from Oscar night for their favorite charities exclusively for PEOPLE?
Preston, who took pics for the Jett Travolta Foundation and Heroes Health Fund, gives readers an intimate look as she gets ready at home with husband John Travolta and daughter Ella. The three later drove off to the red carpet in their 1962 Rolls Royce.
First-time Oscar attendee Jones, raised funds for SeriousFun.org, by showing us how she glammed it up at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel before performing at the show. Wallis, meanwhile, captured her special moments (she meet Halle Berry and Jamie Foxx!) for the Haven, a Louisiana-based charity for victims of violence.
