Celebrating Global Style

W hosted an intimate, rooftop dinner on Tuesday evening.

While the madness of fashion week continued on the streets of New York City, W Magazine hosted a preview of its November Global Style Issue high atop the roof of the Peninsula Hotel. Veronica Chou, Miroslava Duma, Melvin Chua, Mario Sorrenti, and W Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi— a host committee that appropriately represented all corners of the globe—welcomed a crowd of international fashion insiders for an intimate dinner al fresco. “It doesn’t even feel like fashion week up here,” remarked one relieved guest over cocktails in the breezy, open-air Salon de Ning.

When guests took their seats for dinner at the grand, banquet-style table, the gathering started to feel a bit like a meeting of the United Nations—and an incredibly chic one, at that. Duma held court with fellow Russians like art collector Maria Baibakova, and street style star Nasiba Adilova, while Brazilian it-girl Helena Bordon chatted with compatriots Ana Khouri and Carlos Souza, and met Colombian jewelry designer, Paula Mendoza. A slew of international models including Liu Wen, Joan Smalls, and Jessica Gomes, sat interspersed throughout the table, each representing their respective corners of the world.

The party didn’t properly start, however, until supermodel Naomi Campbell made her fashionably late entrance. Stunning as usual in a cut-out Versace number, all eyes turned as she sashayed in and took her prime seat next to Sorrenti.

“[Tonight] has been really lovely because I got to see and visit with such great people and great friends,” said Duma. “And the biggest treat for me is seeing Baz Luhrman who I admire and adore.” The director was warmly welcomed by all when he made an impromptu appearance at midnight, joining the group for one more round of drinks over the Manhattan skyline.
