Tonight, comic genius Seth Meyers trades his shared desk at Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update for a solo seat as host of Late Night, taking over Jimmy Fallon‘s former seat. Since this zinger king has years of experience staying up while most of us are getting ready for bed, we asked him how he rolls after-hours — really! One choice activity? Late night eBay searches for old-school football memorabilia, with which he plans to deck out his new office. “I’m currently very nostalgic about the football teams of my youth. Also being married now, I realize that a lot of the crappy stuff I used to hang up in my apartment now is not going up in my apartment,” he tells InStyle exclusively. “So I’m like ‘Oh, I’ll get these old Pittsburgh Steelers posters, but I’ll put them up in my new work office. If you’re currently bidding on something that is Steelers-related, and if you are losing to someone, it’s likely me.” Keep scrolling to find out what else Meyers gets up to when the sun goes down, then catch his first Late Night show on NBC tonight at 12:35 AM EST.

Seth Meyers isn’t worried about Golden Globe Awards hosts Amy Poehler and Tiny Fey being entertaining tomorrow. Why not? He prepared them for the show himself! The soon-to-be host of Late Night tells InStyle that he is the man behind the duo’s roster of jokes for tomorrow night’s awards – well kind of. “I have readied myself for the beautiful music of Poehler and Fey,” he told us at Diane von Furstenberg’s Journey of a Dress exhibition premiere in Los Angeles on Friday night, which brought out an A-list of stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Demi Moore. “I’ve been helping out, every year. The last two years, those of us who have worked with them have been happy to suggest jokes; not that they really need our help.”
As for the comedic lineup, Meyers says we should expect to be highly entertained, just like last year. “I heard their jokes last night – we went to a read-through and they are in great shape, they are great,” says Meyers, who takes on the role of presenter at this year’s awards. “They have earned the goodwill of the audience. It is the perfect formula for that kind of show.”

Diane von Furstenberg Celebrates the Dress That “Paid All My Bills” with Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore and OthersJan 11, 2014 @ 3:05 pm
Last night, Diane von Furstenberg kicked off the 40th anniversary of her famed wrap dress with the launch of the “Journey of a Dress” exhibition at the Wilshire May Company Building in Los Angeles, now open to the public until March. To help honor the dress that started it all for the designer, von Furstenberg invited a few of her closest friends—including Gwyneth Paltrow, Rachel Zoe, Coco Rocha, Seth Meyers, Ahna O’Reilly, Demi Moore, Allison Williams, Ashley Olsen—who all paid homage to DVF by wearing one of her many creations (except for Meyers of course!) “This is the first time that I’ve ever honored the wrap dress, who has paid for all my bills,” von Furstenberg said to InStyle.com. “I took her for granted, and now I am honoring her and it feels good.”
Inside the gallery-style space, vintage and contemporary DVF designs were displayed on countless mannequins—including the very first sample of the wrap dress— dating back over the past four decades, as well as a collection of von Furstenberg photos created by artists and photographers alike including Andy Warhol, Helmut Newton, and Annie Leibovitz, not to mention an oversized guestbook filled with loving notes written to the designer, which caught the attention of Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon.
As von Furstenberg greeted each of her guests—who all enjoyed small bites like mini shrimp tacos, mushroom crostinis, veggie samosas, and crispy white truffle risotto cakes—the designer saved her most glowing praise for the other “girls” in the room, those iconic wrap dresses. As she looked around at the hundreds of her creations on display, she admitted to InStyle.com, “they are all my children,” and she just simply couldn’t pick a favorite. Here’s to another 40 years!
Seth Meyers, Diane von Furstenberg, Elie Tahari, and More Show Their Support At The Worldwide Orphans 9th Annual GalaNov 19, 2013 @ 5:45 pm
Last night in New York City, Cipriani Wall Street was filled with messages of hope at the Worldwide Orphans 9th Annual Gala. The Worldwide Orphans Foundation, founded in 1997 by Dr. Jane Aronson, aims to transform the lives of orphaned children to help them become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world. Funny-man Seth Meyers hosted the evening, which honored Diane von Furstenberg and Dr. Sophie Mengistu for being exceptional WWO ambassadors and supporters. In her acceptance speech, von Furstenberg touched on the importance of WWO. “Worldwide Orphans has saved 50,000 children! That is amazing! Dr. Jane is the most wonderful, extraordinary person, and I am just honored to be here and to help her,” the designer stated.
Elie Tahari, Alexi Meyers, Jenna Lyons, and Ann Curry, were also in attendance, each of whom seemed to have a personal connection to the cause. “It’s a wonderful thing, this cause. When I was young, I was in an orphanage myself,” Tahari, who was honored at last year’s gala, told InStyle.com. Seth Meyers got involved in the cause through the encouragement of the women in his life. “Amy Poehler, who was honored with Dr. Jane is 2009, has been speaking about WWO to me since then. Also, my wife has been working for the organization. I was lucky enough to have these strong-willed women in my life introduce me to the strongest-willed woman, being Dr. Jane,” Meyers told InStyle.com.
The evening also included a live auction, where items including Saturday Night Live tickets, an apprenticeship with DVF, and a personalized voicemail message from Hugh Jackman were auctioned off. All in all, the event raised over $1.3 million for the commendable organization.
