EMMY NIGHT MEMORIES

The big show was over, but the special guest stars were still appearing: Desperate HousewivesEva Longoria and boyfriend Tony Parker shared Kobe beef. Michael Vartan held court at a table surrounded by admiring women. And Heidi Klum slow-danced with husband Seal as Prince got the crowd grooving for nearly two hours.

That was the scene at the Entertainment Tonight & PEOPLE post-Emmy party Aug. 27, as more than 700 guests mingled over short ribs and seared ahi salad inside the Skybar at L.A.’s Mondrian hotel. Other treats? The Häagen-Dazs Sweet Suite, where ET‘s Vanessa Minnillo had her pick of mini ice-cream cones; two Emmy gowns crafted completely from PEOPLE magazines by the nominated costume teams of Everybody Hates Chris and Desperate Housewives; and a Maybelline New York beauty bar. While Prince lit up the stage, partygoers sipped purple-vanilla cosmos amid crystal vases layered with lavender jelly beans. We’d gathered to celebrate Emmy gold, but purple prevailed.
