“The images speak for themselves—iconic and beautiful,” said Joe Jonas of W magazine’s newest book, W: Stories, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at some of the magazine’s greatest hits. Jonas was just one of the many bold faced names on hand last night to celebrate the tome at Ian Schrager's newly opened Edition Hotel in Miami’s South Beach. Francesco Vezzoli, Douglas Booth, Laure Heriard Dubreuil, Linda Evangelista and Ferragamo creative director Massimiliano Giornetti, one of the night’s hosts, were among the first to arrive at the breezy penthouse suite, where W’s Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi held court. While Evangelista, dressed in a champagne and black Ferragamo dress, flipped through the book with Tonchi, an Erdem-clad Lily Kwong caught up with DJ Chelsea Leyland, who was dressed in a black crocheted Burberry frock, and ordered a round of the evening’s cocktail, the Belvedere lime gimlet. Nearby fellow Brit and CFDA nominee Misha Nonoo sipped champagne with her husband, Paddle8 founder Alexander Gilkes. “I was encouraging him to go with the canary colored suit but he went for grandpa blue instead,” said Nonoo, of her husband’s powder blue Ferragamo look. “I love Edward Enninful’s work and I’m happy to see so much of it in the book,” Nonoo continued. “I am absolutely ordering a copy!”
