“I love this night because it’s so honest,” said Francisco Costa, there to see Zoe Saldana receive the Calvin Klein Collection Spotlight Award. Everyone was definitely in a sharing mood.

“It feels a bit overwhelming because I have watched these women for so long,” said award winner Emily Blunt. “You watch — and steal from them — all the time, really.”
“I’m a girl’s girl,” added fellow honoree Julianne Moore. “I should just play lesbians from now on so I get to work with more women.”
Host Alec Baldwin, meanwhile, was just happy he’s working with fewer women.
“It’s a good thing I’m not playing the love interest anymore,” he said. “Because actresses are so tiny these days I would definitely crush them.”
