LOS ANGELES Entertainment Tonight announced today that its 13th annual Emmy party, sponsored by People magazine for the sixth consecutive year, will take to Vibiana following the Emmy telecast on September 20.
The venue choice marks a shift toward a more intimate party; the last two annual events have been held at Disney Hall. Chef Susan Feniger’s Los Angeles restaurant, Street, will cater the event, and Milk will provide a frozen dessert bar with treats like mini ice-cream sandwiches, drumsticks, bon bons, milk shakes, and malts. The look will include a palette of “warm tones, classic furniture, and decor with a modern twist," according to a release. Samantha Ronson will serve as DJ, and a live musical performance—historically a big-name headliner—will be announced at a later date. The party will include a customized Absolut vodka bar serving guests signature cocktails, and the Maybelline Lounge will allow guests to fill up their personal gift bags with product samples. Bounce Entertainment, helmed by president Carleen Cappelletti, produces the event.
“We are really looking to host this year’s party at a venue that's exciting and untapped for most people in the TV business. Vibiana will give us an amazing backdrop for our entertainment and menu this year,” said Linda Bell Blue, executive producer for ET and The Insider, in a release. “I've been hearing so much buzz about Street, and everyone raves about the desserts at Milk. We can't hold the party at either spot, so we're bringing their delectable foods downtown for our guests.”
