Before the ceremony, sweaty celebs strutted down a red carpet lined with wall gardens bursting with strawberries and other organic goodies. Also positioned along the carpet were fans _ the ones that circulate air, not obsessive screams _ powered by models pedaling exercise bikes to keep attendees feeling cool.

Levi Johnston, who recently called off his engagement _ again _ with Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, walked the red carpet with singer Brittani Senser. Johnston said his relationship with Palin as the parents of their toddler son, Tripp, is going well despite their break-up.

“We are doing great,” said Johnston. “I talk to her every day. We keep in touch. Even though with us broken off, it is like we are together. We found a way to work with each other. Things are going good.”
