After successfully hosting the 43rd season premiere of Saturday Night Live, Ryan Gosling celebrated with his love Eva Mendes and tons of stars! A glittering afterparty for the episode was held at TAO Uptown in NYC on early Sunday morning. Along with the cast and crew of the late-night comedy, the A-list couple joined stars like Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the event. The happy couple was spotted holding hands as they made their way into the restaurant, looking chic in retro ensembles.

The 36-year-old actor opted for a more casual post-host look. He stepped out in a 70s-inspired patterned sweater, which was nestled underneath a light jean jacket, and blue slacks. He also wore a yellow necklace and faded brown shoes. Ryan’s longtime love Eva kept the retro-style going with a patterned jumpsuit. The mother-of-two also wore a pair of throwback black peep-toe heels.
Celebrities like Alicia Keys, Andy Cohen, Diddy, Damien Marley, Dakota Johnson and Scarlett Johansson, who’s dating Colin Jost of SNL, were also in attendance for the big bash. Ryan’s La La Land co-star Emma Stone, who has hosted the Emmy-winning show three times and delivered a cameo during Ryan’s recent stint, was seen enjoying the night’s festivities as well. Of course, one of the show’s producers Lindsay Shookus stopped by the event too. However, she was without her movie star boyfriend Ben Affleck.

Ryan did a wonderful job ringing the live show back in. He was a charming host, providing lots of fun and topical moments, including a sketch with Kate McKinnon, where he couldn’t hold back from laughing. Jay-Z complemented the actor’s duties for the night, performing songs from his new album before he joined his superstar wife for the kick-off celebration. The Blade Runner 2049 star first hosted Saturday Night Live back in December 2015.
