A Tale Of Two Shoes: How I Survived Emmy Night

08/30/2006 at 10:34 AM ET

My first Emmys and all I can say is thank god I listened to veteran PEOPLE reporter Marisa Laudadio who insisted I bring a pair of ballet slippers with me to the awards!  I was planning to wear my 4 1/2 inch YSL pumps ($495, but bought on sale in Honolulu, but you can check eBay). But when our driver got to the Shrine Auditorium, he realized he didn’t have the right parking pass to get us to the entrance. With only 15 minutes to make it to our seats, our only hope was to sprint OVER A MILE to the theater. So I whipped out the ballet flats (luvmyflats gold leather ballet shoes from Nine West for $49) and started booking down broken sidewalks and Hardee’s parking lots. My Versani 18k gold and diamond earrings ($1,800 loaners—thanks guys!) and my $99 black Andalousy Satellite Paris necklace and $120 Jeanne Nicole lariat were flying everywhere. But thanks to my rubber-soled luvmyflats and my stretch taffeta frock ($410, Nicole Miller), the toughest thing about that mad Emmy dash was trying to breath through fits of hysterical laughter while hauling some serious ass. — Anne Marie Cruz
