Jane Krakowski, Abigail Breslin Kick Off Emmys Weekend With a Toast to Women in TV
Hollywood’s female TV game-changers celebrated ‘Glamour’s’ “Women to Watch” at Tory Burch’s Beverly Hills rooftop.
They may all be prepping for the big night at the moment, but on Friday afternoon, some of TV’s most-powerful women headed to Beverly Hills to toast Glamour magazine’s “Women to Watch,” a celebration of powerful females in the TV biz who are changing the landscape of Hollywood.

Despite the 90-degree heat, guests including Kiernan Shipka (who arrived arm in arm with Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant), Jane Krakowski, Abigail Spencer and Kate Bosworth were effortlessly cool in looks by Tory Burch — with Bosworth’s white, off-the-shoulder ensemble coming straight from Burch’s spring 2016 NYFW runway.
Also helping Glamour editor-in-chief Cindi Leive celebrate the moment were Emmy-nominated actress Khandi Alexander (a.k.a. Mama Pope from Scandal), Emmy-nominated Homeland director and executive producer Lesli Linka Glatter, Emmy-nominated actress Zoe Kazan as well as some of fall TV’s biggest stars including Scream Queens actress Abigail Breslin, Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland and Eva Longoria, who’s starring in the new comedy, Hot and Bothered.
But just because they took a moment to celebrate the big weekend, doesn’t mean they’re hanging up their hats until next season. “We’re working still,” Linka Glatter told Pret-a-Reporter. “I had to come home early to go to the editing room — we’re still shooting [Homeland] Berlin.”
Breslin too, who flew in from New York where she’s filming Scream Queens, is busy working — but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time for a little bonding on set. “Emma [Roberts] is like my big sister,” she said of her co-star, who also nabbed one of Glamour’s three covers for its October issue. “She always asks for Internet advice. She’ll be like, ‘Gail, how do I stalk this person?’” The 19-year-old actress/social media maven joked of her stalking skills, “The girls all send me links to their boyfriends' Facebook pages. I have my ways.”
Krakowski, who is nominated for her role on Tina Fey’s Netflix hit, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, also has a tight relationship with her castmates. While filming the second season of the show, the 46-year-old mused that they took a little time out of their day to prep for tonight’s big show.
“I know what all my girls are wearing, we all share,” she said. “We all went into Carol Kane’s dressing room and tried on all of our outfits.” And though she's mum on what she'll be stepping out in this evening, she did have this to say with regards to her dress: "It's an amazing look, I'm really proud to wear it."
