Pink. There was pink everywhere. Pink Lights. Pink, velvet, giraffe print tablecloths. Pink cotton candy. If anything, you couldn't say the 62nd Annual Emmy HBO After Party wasn't festive.
All the A-listers filed into the Pacific Design Center to the beat of conga drums. As soon as Stephen Moyer and his new bride, Anna Paquin arrived, they were whisked by security to the True Blood corner. Vampires, werewolves and shape shifters were already there nibbling on hamachi salad and mini burgers. When Paquin saw Mariana Klaveno, the devious vampiress Lorena, she threw her arms around her with a huge "Hello!". Moyer stood by graciously thanking fans for their well wishes on his recent nuptials. A couple lucky few even got to get their picture snapped with the handsome Bill Compton.
On the other side of the room, Susan Sarandon chatted with friends, including a very slim John Goodman. And the legendary Tom Hanks never left his wife, or his Emmy's, side. Another couple that couldn't get enough of each other were Jenny McCarthy and her new beau, Jason Toohey…they stole several kisses throughout the night.
On top of the pink there was a lot of gold. Emmy winners proudly kept their awards in hand. The stunning Claire Danes was snapped with her Emmy and the real life Temple Grandin. Jim Parsons, Paul Greenberg, Aaron Paul, Julia Ormond and Tom Colicchio clutched their statues throughout the night.
Another golden statue, with a hint of Latin spice, was Sofia Vergara in her canary, jeweled Carolina Herrera gown. You could hear her laugh across the room, when she wasn't on her Blackberry…and to that end, who wouldn't be laughing if they got to snuggle up to George
Even as the temperature dropped to shiver-inducing lows, it wasn't until the music stopped well past midnight that the likes of Chloe Sevigny and Michelle Trachtenberg were forced to bid each other adieu. All in all, this glamours night gets an A+.
