CNN hosted a party Friday night as part of the Television Critics Association tour. Anderson was one of many CNN anchors in attendance. So if you thought Friday's AC360 looked a bit different, Anderson was in the LA studio. Photos from Zimbio.com

From The Hollywood Reporter:
The Party: The gala Golden Globe weekend opening of Diane von Furstenberg's Journey of a Dress Exhibiton at LACMA, celebrating the designer's 40th anniversary, on Friday, Jan. 10.
The Place: The old Wilshire May Company Building at Fairfax and Wilshire, and the future home of the new Academy of Motion Pictures -- filled to the brim with printed colorful DVF wrap dresses that looked like a sea of candy on their various mannequins on platforms.
The Players: DVF and husband Barry Diller, Moby, Jeff Bezos, Christian Louboutin (in a natty burgundy suit), Anderson Cooper, Abbie Cornish, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rooney Mara on the arm of stylist Ryan Hastings, Marisa Tomei (in vintage DVF), Joe Jones, Tobey Maguire, Julie Delpy, Demi Moore, Edward Norton, Chris Martin, Crystal Lourd, Bryan Lourd, Seth Meyers, Loree Rodkin, Martin Lawrence Bullard, Coco Rocha, Erin Wasson, Andre Leon Talley holding court with Anna Wintour, Dawn Hudson, Howard Rosenman, David Geffen, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright with Ben Foster, Gelila Puck, Jed Root, W's Stefano Tonchi. The room was also packed with every major New York journalist covering the Globes over the weekend.
The Scene: Was there anyone who wasn't there? It certainly didn't appear to be. Booking this exhibition opening on Golden Globe weekend was a stroke of genius. When David Geffen (in a suit, no less) is posing for pictures with Barry Diller, you know it's an occasion. The hallway entrance to the dress exhibition is filled with fabulous DVF history: portraits of designer, muse, and collector Diane von Furstenberg by artists Andy Warhol, Barbara Kruger, Chuck Close, Francesco Clemente, Helmut Newton, and Annie Leibovitz. The exhibition also includes stills from the wrap dress’ big screen cameos, from Cybill Shepherd in Taxi Driver to Amy Adams in American Hustle. (please click on the above link for the full article)
Andy Cohen was emcee for the opening which was live-streamed on DVF.com and for those interested in the exhibit, Vogue has a nice article which you can read by clicking here.
