On Wednesday, Entertainment Tonight, consistently the host of one of Emmy night's biggest events, announced details of its party. The event will take to Vibiana for the second consecutive year, following the Primetime Emmy telecast on August 29. And it will stick to its typical format: hotshot chef, big-name performer, sponsored beauty lounge, coveted gift bag.
Chef Susan Feniger of Border Grill will create the menu, and Bure Family Wines will provide its limited selection Majesty Cabernet Sauvignon and Nuit Blanche, of which only 125 cases of each are produced every year. Magnolia Bakery, which recently opened in town amid much buzz, will provide the dessert bar.
Carleen Cappelletti, president of Bounce Entertainment, will produce the event, and Along Came Mary will staff it. The colors of summer will inspire the look, accented by black and white. DJ Samantha Ronson will spin, and there will be a live performance by a Grammy-winning artist, whose name will be announced on August 16. Past headline acts include Prince, Mary J. Blige, Duran Duran, Billy Idol, and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Cole Haan will supply the gift bags, which will be stuffed with 30 high-end products, including a resort stay at the Terranea. Neutrogena will host a beauty bar providing guests with professional touch-ups and product giveaways. Dr. Scholl’s For Her will also have a lounge to alleviate high-heel discomfort at the end of a long award show night. The party will also have a Grey Goose vodka bar.
“Each year we look forward to hosting the hottest party in town for TV's biggest night,” said ET and The Insider executive producer Linda Bell Blue in the statement. “This year is no exception with the food, desserts, Napa wines, a Grammy-winning performer, and of course, our gift bag.”
