Hollywood met South Beach Saturday night at a party thrown by Maxim magazine at the SLS Hotel. Kate Lanphear, editor-in-chief of the so-called lad’s mag, hosted a party to celebrate the worldwide debut of its Maxim Swimwear Collection at Funkshion Swim Week.
Onetime reality TV duo LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian cuddled for the cameras while mingling with other guests such as style blogger Jasmine Tosh, model Chantel Jeffries and boxing champion Lennox Lewis.
Models catwalked over a dimly lit pool in more than 50 Brigitte Bardot-inspired looks in collections called Boho and Girl Next Door. The Boho pieces featured fringe, crochet lace and bold prints interjected with warm earth tones and embellishments, while Girl Next Door captured a more All-American feel with sleek solids, seersucker and gingham prints.
As for Rimes and Cibrian, they are definitely fans of swimwear. The duo was in town last year for the same event, back when it was IMG Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. This time around, the country singer was rumored to be with child. But Rimes squashed that scuttlebutt on Sunday by parading around SoBe for paparazzi in a skimpy bikini. Flat abs? Check.
Never miss a local story.
MAKING A SPLASH
Treats! magazine cooled off Miami Swim Week — literally. At a party thrown by the L.A.-based publication Friday night at Miami Beach Editions’s Basement nightclub, the catwalk was the venue’s ice rink.
Famous guests like Joe Jonas enjoyed custom vodka cocktails while taking in resort 2016 designs by Lezard. The former Jonas Brothers singer was seen texting his girlfriend Gigi Hadid. The model and sometime Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star — Cody Simpson’s ex — stayed home in Los Angeles.
Real Housewives of Miami cast member Lisa Hochstein stepped out with husband Lenny just two weeks after the couple welcomed son Logan via surrogate (the tireless duo was also spotted front row at Luli Fama). Fellow RHOM, Alexia Echevarria, newly separated Venue magazine editor, came with aspiring-model son Peter Rosello on her arm.
Also in the crowd: Orlando-born-and-raised model Charlotte McKinney and boyfriend, actor Stephen Dorff (Cecil B Demented). Hollywood’s hot new duo — she’s 21, he turns 42 next week — were partying, dancing and drinking the night away.
Shahs of Sunset headliner Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, along with sister and business partner Leila Gharachedaghi and pal Shervin Roohparvar, took in the Maaji show inside the FUNKSHION tent on Sunday. Earlier on “Funday,” GG soaked up the sun, sipped rose and ate shrimp ceviche at the Shelborne with PR pal Marysol Patton, as per the hair extensions entrepreneur’s Periscope account (powered by Twitter). “An amazing day in Miami,” said GG on the video. “Just really pretty here. Wish you all could see it.”
