Sarah was in an “extremely good mood. She was on the dance floor dancing with Debby Ryan, and laughing quite often,” an eyewitness at the event tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We’re also told that Sarah had fun in the photo booth on more than one occasion, and she was seen hanging out with Teen Vogue editor Amy Astley and Teen Vogue‘s Andrew Bevan all night — she was really interested in spending time with them.
We’re so happy to hear that Sarah is spending time with friends and doing her best at keeping her mind off Matt and her horrific breakup.
Sarah “looked great. She was in a spectacular mood. She showed zero signs of pain or disappointment,” our source adds.
