Speaking of Style

The Party
With varying opinions, party collaborations can go either way. Luckily there was none of that at the W Stories ($47, Harry N. Abrams) book launch at The Edition Miami Beach. W magazine and Salvatore Ferragamo joined forces to celebrate the new volume, which offers a look at the artistic collaborations that have produced some of the most provocative and enchanting photography of recent time.

The Crowd
Hosted by W Editor-in-Chief Stefano Tonchi, Salvatore Ferragamo Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti and supermodel legend Linda Evangelista, the gathering was the ultimate style soiree with an A-list contingent of glamorous guests. Among those seeing and being seen (in head-to-toe Ferragamo, no less) were actor Douglas Booth, singer Joe Jonas, actress Jena Malone and singer Geordon Nicol.

The Highlights
Three words summarize the scene succinctly: mingling, moxie and air-kissing. Giornetti, Evangelista and Tonchi worked the crowd. The Misshapes performed their brand of stylish rock. And the sign of too much of a good time was apparent just hours into the celebration: Plenty of Champagne and spirits to drink but no clean glasses from which to do the sipping. “We’re working on it,” said a frazzled but friendly waiter. “It will all... be... fine.” And so it was. –Photography by Billy Farrell/Billy Farrell Agency
