THE PARTY The third annual Emmy week kickoff fĂȘte honoring the stars of the small screen, hosted by Audi and Derek Lam at Cecconi’s THE PLAYERS Melissa McCarthy, Matthew Weiner, Julie Bowen, Ashley Madekwe, Rumer Willis THE HIGHLIGHTS The hot West Hollywood eatery was the perfect setting for the Audi event celebrating Emmy nominees, a lucky handful of which arrived in the company’s luxury flagship sedan, the A8L. “Audi has chairs in the backseat that massage you on the way here,” said Modern Family’s Bowen. “I’m dead serious. Literally it’s amazing.” Her castmates, Ty Burrell and Eric Stonestreet, showed off their dance moves to DJ Michelle Pesce’s turntable selections, while Lam—fresh from New York Fashion Week and masterminding plans for the Audi Green Room backstage at the Emmys—maintained his neutrality throughout the evening. “I’m a bit of a channel surfer, so I don’t have any favorites at the moment,” he said. “I’m hoping everybody gets their due.”­ Photography by Charley Gallay and Michael Buckner/Wireimage
