The biggest stars on the small screen are in New York City to give TV execs a taste of what they’ll be watching this fall. Last night, InStyle and Untitled Entertainment teamed up to host a cocktail party for some of television’s most familiar faces and their biggest fans. “I came here straight from Cannes,” said Vanessa Hudgens, who mingled with Californication‘s Carla Gugino, Top Chef‘s Padma Lakshmi and the stars of The Vampire Diaries. While Hudgens is focused on her movie career, she isn’t ruling out a return to TV. “I’ve been on an adventurous kick, so I’d love to guest star on Man vs. Wild or Survivorman,” said the High School Musical alum. “I think it would be so much fun!” Click through the gallery to see all the stars who joined in the celebration at our annual Upfronts bash.
Hot on the heels of his eBay collab, Derek Lam is launching a new clothing line! Called 10 Crosby Derek Lam, after the designer’s New York City office address, the collection features lower price points and a more downtown feel. “After the tough economic times, there definitely is a customer looking for fashion with an accessible reach, but considered in a fresh manner,” Lam told WWD. Shoppers can expect to see lots of jersey fabrics and soft tailoring in 10 Crosby, with an emphasis on utilitarian everyday basics. The line is set to roll out in November at department stores and Lam’s Crosby Street boutique, and prices will run from $195 to $895.

Ralph Macchio and his partner Karina Smirnoff were eliminated from Dancing With the Stars last night, one week shy of the final show. It was almost expected, as the original Karate Kid received the lowest scores the past two weeks. But it was still sad to see him go! Aside from their hot cha chas, we’ll miss the duo’s style the most. Macchio drew attention for his dramatic eye makeup looks, while Smirnoff always wore the sexiest outfits ballroom dancing has to offer. “I will never forget how the fans have driven us through every week,” Macchio said after the results.
