In terms of spectacle, it’s looking like the Formula One Miami Grand Prix might just blow Art Week out of the clear, turquoise water. With the race scheduled for Sunday, stylish denizens have descended upon the city to celebrate the occasion with gusto, glitz, and plenty of champagne all weekend long. On Friday night, W and Dior, with Karlie Kloss, hosted a cocktail party to toast Lewis Hamilton, the record-setting Mercedes driver and fan favorite.
On a steamy south Florida evening, guests mingled in the candlelit courtyard of a private residence on the bay shore, snacking on plant-based bites (Hamilton is an outspoken vegan) and sipping chilled tequila and hibiscus cocktails. Friends of Dior showed off the house’s latest wares: Kloss wore a kicky sequined number, while Hamilton came straight from a final day of training in a crisp charcoal waistcoat and trousers. The driver’s arrival added a magnetic charge to the already energized crowd, who alternated between grooving to Italo Disco hits and kicking back on couches by the water.
Also in the mix: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, will.i.am, Shawn Mendes, NFL player Travis Kelce, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Derek Blasberg and Nick Brown, Richard Plepler, Natalie Massenet, Bryan Goldberg and W publisher Amber Estabrook.
