Naya Rivera, Darren Criss and Jennifer Lawrence: 2013 GLAAD Awards (PHOTOS)
Naya Rivera (Santana) never has any problem being able to turn heads on the red carpet, and the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards were certainly no exception! The Glee star stunned in an elegant dusty rose dress, crystal heels, and gorgeous turquoise drop earrings.
Even better, Naya showed up to the awards with her mother, Yolanda Rivera, as her date. Too cute! The Glee star recently started dating rapper Big Sean, and though we would have loved to have seen another set of cute couple pics on the red carpet, we’d say that a mother-daughter date is definitely an acceptable alternative.
Elsewhere at the show, Naya’s co-star Darren Criss (Blaine) posed for photos with Hunger Games beauty Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Alex Newell (Unique). Oscar winner Jennifer, who wore a sexy black dress and showed off her short new haircut, laughed and traded hugs with Darren at his table.
Glee was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series. The show didn’t end up winning, but all was not lost! Glee creator Ryan Murphy still took home a win in that category: His NBC comedy The New Normal ended up taking the prize.
Darren also performed during the April 20 event — taking the stage to play Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit “Call Me Maybe,” but with all new words! The modified tune shows support for same-sex marriage, while speaking out against California’s Prop 8 and the Defense Against Marriage Act (DOMA). Take a look at all the fun photos from the event!
