Victorious’ Victoria Justice, Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, True Grit’s Hailee Steinfeld and Glee’s Chord Overstreet were among the many young stars who flocked to Beverly Hills on Thursday for a fashionable night out to celebrate their peers’ success in the industry.
The 10th Annual Teen Vogue 'Young Hollywood' Party with Emporio Armani was held a sprawling private residence, where guests mingled around an infinity pool and snacked on seared ahi tuna, mini sliders and shrimp tacos.

Fresh off of their show’s multiple Emmy wins last weekend, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland and Ariel Winter previewed some upcoming storylines for its current season. While Hyland hinted that Haley might not take to the academic side of college very well, Winter told The Hollywood Reporter that Haley’s absence from home is “weird” for her character. “For Alex, it’s kind of like the balance is thrown off. She has nobody to really torment. Haley was her main target. So she really has to get used to that,” Winter said.
Revenge star Christa B. Allen teased that the upcoming season, premiering Sept. 30, will reveal more about the characters’ past history. While Allen remained mum about her character’s fate after last season’s cliffhanger, she promised that Charlotte returns in some capacity in season two.
Pretty Little Liars’ Lucy Hale mingled and joked around with her co-star Tyler Blackburn on the red carpet. Blackburn revealed to THR that the show’s upcoming Halloween episode will “definitely have a dead body or two.” Hale added that her character Aria, who dresses up as Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby for Halloween, gets put into a “very strange situation” in the episode, which will take place on a train.
Some adults were also spotted among the young Hollywood crowd, including director Judd Apatow and his wife, actress Leslie Mann. They team up again in the upcoming comedy This Is 40, which will also feature performances by their daughters Maude and Iris. On working with his daughters, Apatow told THR, “It’s super fun. They’re really good actresses. It allows me to not have to work with other kids.”
