If you weren't among the lucky guests at last night's pre-Emmy party put on by Audi at Cecconi's in West Hollywood, you missed out on a lot. Stars like Aaron Paul, Michelle Dockery, Jon Voight, Zoe Saldana and Julie Bowen showed up to celebrate Emmys week in what was Audi's fifth annual event at the restaurant. Guests rolled up in shiny luxury cars, including the A8 TDI, to hit the red carpet for some photos and interviews. With drinks flowing, Cecconi's famous food passed around (we could live off their gourmet pizzas), and Audi's photo booth immortalizing the night, here is a little peek at what you missed.
Aaron Paul took some time to chat about being reunited with Breaking Bad co-star Bryan Cranston for Audi's Emmy video, Barely Legal Pawn—which was released on Tuesday and also stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus. He also dished about the scavenger hunt he's holding throughout Hollywood for a ton of Breaking Bad-related treats (like a script, show art, and action figures), which is in honor of the show's last round of Emmy nominations.
Aaron Paul and Lauren Parsekian
Paul officially announced the scavenger hunt on his Instagram on Wednesday, telling his fans: "Thank you to everyone that has supported us thru out the years. We couldn't have done it without you!" If you want to join in, it starts Monday at 11 am and will last two hours. Keep an eye on his Instagram for locations and you better hurry!
Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego
Zoe Saldana (who positively glowed in a leopard print dress) made a big hit with her husband Marco Perego, as it was their very first public appearance since she officially announced her pregnancy early this week—which is pretty noticeable now.
Jessica Pare and Michelle Dockery
Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery wowed everyone, dressed in an emerald green Zac Posen dress, while Jessica Pare wore a black and white printed dress accented with a lace slit.
Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ty Burrell, Rich Sommer
Of course, with excellent DJs spinning all the hits, the restaurant's dance floor filled up by ten o'clock. Modern Family co-stars Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell (who was one of the first stars to arrive on the red carpet), along with Mad Men's Rich Sommer, had a good time getting down to some 90s hip hop—despite Stonestreet's earlier comment about skipping dancing in favor of saving energy for an early call time this morning.
Dascha Polanco and Taryn Manning
Orange is the New Black was represented by Taryn Manning and Dascha Polanco who took some selfies before Polanco jumped out to dance to Beyoncé’s Yoncé.
Jon Voight and Aaron Paul
Jon Voight definitely got around, popping up all over the party while always smiling. On the red carpet he chatted about fatherhood and needing to write an acceptance speech on the off-chance he wins for best supporting actor for his role in Ray Donovan.
