America's Got Talent...and glamour. Just 24 hours after Adrian Stoica and his dog Hurricane were crowned the winners of AGT season 18, Judges Heidi Klum and Sofia Vergara were together again — on another coast.

How to Watch

Watch the Season 19 premiere of America’s Got Talent Tuesday, May 28 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

The reality talent competition films in Pasadena, California, so both stars had to hop on overnight cross-country flights to make it to New York City for The Albies, an awards ceremony honoring "defenders of justice" and hosted by the Clooney Foundation at the New York Public Library. Attendees were treated to performances by former Voice Coach Alicia Keys (Seasons 11, 12, and 14) and a gospel choir. Celebrity advocates were on hand to present the honors and bring awareness to the various issues highlighted by the winners, and of course, to look fabulous while doing so.

For the occasion, Klum chose a figure-hugging bejeweled dress with a contrasting black and white silhouette, while Vergara opted for a strapless rhinestoned jumpsuit with a flared hem. They posed together with makeup mogul Charlotte Tilbury and fellow guests Kate Moss, Mark Ronson, and Mary J. Blige. Vergara also uploaded a selfie of herself and Klum.

Judges who play together stay together.

The German model took the trip to New York as the perfect opportunity to visit her 19-year-old daughter Leni, who is living in the Big Apple while she studies interior design and pursues a modeling career of her own. The Klum ladies shared a lunch of mashed potatoes and steamed spinach while enjoying their mother-daughter time.

Klum previously opened up about spending time with Vergara outside of work hours, revealing that the two of them, plus Howie Mandel's wife Terry and Simon Cowell's fiancée Laura, have "girly" hangs.

"When we all hang out together, we're kind of gossiping, talking about relationships," she said. "I mean, girly stuff, and it's just fun to have girls to do that with now, and we're all kind of in the same age group...It's nice to exchange." On another occasion, she gushed about working with colleague-turned-friend Vergara. “I love Sofia. You know, it’s not really work. You can’t call this work what we’re doing…We’re having fun…We have a great time together off camera and on camera."

The feeling is mutual. As Vergara put it, “I love [Heidi]...I mean we have the best time together. We’re always, you know joking. We even dress up the same way without even planning.” Jet-setting from a TV spectacle to an A-list dinner with your bestie...not a bad way to kick off the weekend!
