Live from In Touch’s Icons+Idols Party with Jenny McCarthy, NERVO, Sarah Hyland, Taryn Manning, Nick Cannon {sponsored}

Last night, live from In Touch Weekly’s Icons+Idols party I was tweeting up the red carpet like it was my job! Which of course it was, since I was fortunate enough to be the red carpet corespondent for COVERGIRL! I already posted about my outfit, now for the fun stuff of who was there and the inside scoop on the top celebs #covermoments of the day as well as their must have beauty item for the red carpet!

Jenny McCarthy has been making headlines what with recently being announced as the newest member of The View, and dating New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg. Her #covermoment was showing her son NYC for the first time and experiencing it through his eyes. Her must have red carpet product is powder — don’t want to be shiny on the red carpet.

She had the same must-have product, powder as well as added lip gloss to the list.Sarah Hyland, Lara Eurdolian, VMA'sIt was so great meeting Taryn Manning, who was wearing a great mix of H&M and vintage, with some Rag and Bone jeans. Paired with a killer red lip that really competed the look, it came as no surprise her must-have beauty item — lipstick.

Sporting some COVERGIRL Flammed Out Shadow Pots and Smoochies Lip Balm, we gushed over our love for the new Flammed Out Collection!! Their #covermoment was the moment before they stepped onto the red carpet and were getting their makeup done.NERVO at In Touch's Icons+Idols eventNow my next guest is tough to say without singing his name… yes, I’m talking about Jason Derulo. Sporting some pretty sick Guiseppe Zanotti pumps, Mr. Derulo opened up that his #covermoment was having dinner with his “sweetheart” post-show. #howsweetJason Derulo, Lara Eurdolian at Icons and Idols VMA after partyIt probably wouldn’t be an In Touch Weekly party if the red carpet wasn’t swimming with reality TV stars. Cast members from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, New York, Mob Wives, Teen Mom, City Girl Diaries and The Jersey Shore joined in the celebration. On again-off again couple Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro joined me on the red carpet. Sammi’s must-have beauty product… bronzer! Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro at Icons and IdolsNick Cannon stopped by for a quick photo opp — how great does he look decked out in Dolce and Gabbana? Going straight from the red carpet to the DJ booth he got the crowd moving and turned the event into a full on dance party. We even caught Jenny McCarthy rocking out in the DJ booth with friends.

Nick Cannon VMA'sSpeaking of Jenny McCarthy, lets face it, I’ve loved her since Singled Out. I’m so excited to see her back in the spotlight and doing so well! My #covermoment of the night goes to her telling me I looked great — twice. (Since apparently the first time left me so speechless, with facial expressions that mimic an adolescent boy trying to ask a girl out that she wanted to reassure me I heard her correctly).
