Jennifer Lopez was a winner and Elizabeth Hurley a presenter at Friday's VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards, but the real fun didn't start until after the high-fashion show was long over. Lopez, the first-ever Versace Award recipient for best, ahem, embodying the "energy and daring" of late designer Gianni Versace, partied with a bunch of pals at the library bar of New York's swanky Hudson Hotel on Friday night, the New York Daily News reports.

Keith Richards and Paul McCartney played pool with Designer of the Year recipient Stella McCartney, Paul's daughter. Kate Hudson played cutesy couple with Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson. Other partygoers included Moby, Sheryl Crow, Chris Rock, Liv Tyler, Lara Flynn Boyle, Christian Slater and fashion awards co-host Gisele Bundchen minus her main squeeze, Leonardo DiCaprio.

All was fine and dandy until 3 a.m., when Lopez and guests decided to spill out into the night air of the hotel garden. Hotel staff showed up and ushered the wild and crazy guests back into the bar after some hotel patrons (probably tourists) complained.

Party over.

Meanwhile, supermodel turned actress Elizabeth Hurley turned heads of her own before and after the VH1/Vogue event.

MSNBC gossip columnist Jeannette Walls reports that Hurley arrived at the awards looking suspiciously disheveled with funnyman Denis Leary. Seems Hurley had smeared much of her Estee Lauder body glitter on the very married Leary's suit.

An "Access Hollywood" report Tuesday backed up Hurley's flustered arrival. As model-"Access" anchor Heidi Klum presented Hurley with a joke best dressed award -- a Barbie doll -- Hurley glared and sarcastically responded "thanks so much" before trying to make an exit.

Klum continued and asked Hurley if she was wearing any undergarments under her revealing dress. Hurley gave Klum a look of pure hatred before replying that it was none of her business. Icy!

On Saturday, Hurley was seen cozying up with millionaire Steve Bing at an Elton John concert in New York. Photos of the couple dancing naughtily were printed in London's Sun tabloid Tuesday.

Hurley has also been linked to billionaire Ted Forstmann since her breakup with her beau of 13 years, actor Hugh Grant.

What a weekend.
