The Emmy excitement isn't over yet! While Buzz shared last night's press room highlights and we've seen all the amazing fashion, beauty, and parties, here are some hidden gems from last night. From Jennifer Aniston to Sarah Palin, our favorite starlets, and Madonna's TV rules — no one was safe from a little lighthearted fun. Check out my top five quotes from last night when the winners stepped away from the podium and really spoke their minds!
Project Runway's Heidi Klum went through six outfit changes at last night's Emmys, which means — you guessed it — six hairstyles. Her stylist, Helena Faccenda, played off each dress and took inspiration from past big screen stars Brigitte Bardot and Veronica Lake. While Heidi went home without an Emmy, she wins praise for her variety of looks. Read on to find out more about each hairstyle.
The majority of you loved Lauren's Emmy dress she designed for herself. We thought it was pretty, but a bit ho-hum. Her second gown of the night, on one of the trophy girls, was also revealed last night. The dresses were complimentary, but nothing over-the-top fabulous. Maybe they wanted the drama to be saved for stunners like Christina Applegate and Olivia Wilde. It was fun to see Project Runway superstar Christian Siriano at the Emmys too — another first — and he designed the deep red tiered dress the other trophy girl wore. Two very different styles from budding designers. What did you think about either? Or both?!

It's not every day you get to witness rare and bold jewelry. Last night at the Emmys I had my bling eye tuned in to the Fred Leighton, Chopard, Cartier, and Lorraine Schwartz stunners. All these beauties deserve a closer look, and I'm here to give it to you. I must point out Christina Applegate's candy-drop earrings; she proves even if you wear a bold (Reem Acra) dress, your jewelry doesn't have to hide.

I'm still feeling the afterglow today from my time in the Emmy press room, where so many happy stars came to talk about their big awards. There are a bunch of tidbits I didn't get to share with you live, so to see what Bryan Cranston, Paul Giamatti, and Laura Linney had to say, read on!
- Bryan Cranston was maybe the happiest guy on Earth when he came back to the press room, clutching his Emmy in one hand and the envelope with his name on it in the other. "I thought I was the dark horse, I really did," he said. "I thought I should have been in the back of the pack. Breaking Bad only had seven episodes to air. I didn't know if that would be enough sampling for the academy to take a look. I'm shocked and wonderfully surprised."
- Cranston also talked a little about his bald head, a look he's currently sporting for the role as his character is going through chemotherapy (he's also lost 17 pounds, he said). Immersing himself in a character that way, he said, is "something actors dream about." That said, he compared baldness to having a skull made of velcro. "There are all kinds of things that are sticking to my head — fuzz, a jujube . . . "
- Someone asked Jon Hamm about his reaction to his success and whether he was getting either a) shy or b) a big head. After laughing that both of those things were true, Hamm got serious: "I still feel like I'm in 10th grade and no one will talk to me at lunch," he said.
- Laura Linney said she's still got a huge stack of history books by her bed, long after her work on John Adams was done. "I had a real understanding of how people get addicted to American history," she said, because each person leads to another. "I'm still reading, actually."
All the women at the Primetime Emmy Awards looked beautiful on the red carpet last night, but some caught our eyes more than others with their bright and colorful gowns. You've voted on the best dressed women and now we want to know who wore the most exciting dress. Tell us — who was your favorite red carpet standout?
After the highs and lows of the Emmys show the party really got started. For many, the first stop was the Governor's Ball like Heidi in yet another gown before the other bashes. Some were off to the ET/People bash while others went to hear Samantha Ronson spin at Kress nightclub for the TV Guide soiree. Lindsay Lohan came along for the ride and acted as a pillow for Samantha after a long weekend of gigs. Best Dressed candidate Hayden kept posing pretty before tonight's big Heroes return. The Mad Men folks had a lot to celebrate making history with their Best Drama Series win. In the press room the cast were clearly loving every second of it taking photos of each other on their iPhones, Jon Hamm pretending to light a cigarette as an homage to the Don Draper inside him while January Jones talked about how the first season Betty was "imploding" and this season she's "exploding" — and it looks like they all exploded a bit partying the night away with the rest of the television stars.
