Andy Cohen tweeted all night... mostly about Jennifer Hudson's ridiculous security detail.
"Liza is onstage going superdeep about Dame Elizabeth Taylor. Liza is feeling it on this Manhattan summer night. "
"Why does Jennifer Hudson need two body guards!? Is someone trying to get her? Is there a JHud treat?"
"JHud tore the ROOF off MoMA. Her security detail wisked her out before any attempt on her life by this rowdy amfAR crowd."
Kenneth Cole, Robert Verdi, Lance Bass, Amber Heard, Ana Matronic, Annie Stark, Alek Wek, Thom Browne, Michael Kors, Andy Cohen, Joanna Garcia, Elie Tahari, Judith Light, Roberto Bolle, Beth Ostrosky Katie Lee, Fabiola Beracasa, Nyasha Zimu, and Cheyenne Jackson were all guests in attendance.
