Mercedes Benz Swim Week was sweltering for so many reasons, among them the appearance of models. And where there are models, there are Leonardo DiCaprio and buddies Lucas Haas and Kevin Connolly, who were spotted all over town with, say our spies, “a harem.” The gang of 10 started out Friday with dinner at Bianca at the Delano, followed by a stop downstairs to FDR where they sipped on vodka and tequila. After that, they stopped by Adore nightclub where they had “no less than 25 models with them.” They danced and partied there all night long. The next day, DiCaprio and crew were spotted at the Delano Beach Club soaking up some sun. Later that night, they were seen at WALL’s fifth anniversary party, again with the magic number of 25 — wait for it — models. There they took over “huge portions of the club, having every bottle available — champagne, vodka, whiskey, tequila and beer.” They partied until closing. Also spotted in between the modelizers: rapper French Montana.

Nina Agdal partied Saturday night with her new real estate agent boyfriend Reid Heidenry at Boulan’s rooftop for the WildFox party where they were seen “drinking punch and getting chummy.”

SELF magazine’s Music Fest Saturday night at Soho Beach House featured guest DJ Alexandra Richards — daughter of Keith — and Entertainment Tonight correspondent Rocsi Diaz and the magazine’s VP Mary Murcko. Richards’ spinning style runs the gamut from The Animals’ classic House of the Rising Sun to pop pablum such as Tiffany’s I Think We’re Alone Now. When an audio tech who was packing up her gear handed her a piece of turntable equipment that wasn’t hers, Richards declined: “If I was a sketchy DJ, I would take it.”

A-Rod and Kevin Hart were seen Friday afternoon working out separately at Equinox South Beach. On Saturday, Hart, in town filming Ride Along 2, was seen in Cameo’s VIP section with football player Dwight Freeney and rapper T-Pain, sipping from multiple bottles of Moet Nectar Rose and Coconut Ciroc. Hart was also seen getting on the mic around 2 a.m., during which time he gave shout outs to people in the crowd.

Tennis player Andy Murray was seen Friday heading into Zuma’s private dining room with a large group of friends. Actress and model Nadine Velazquez there with her own friends on Saturday.

A few football stars enjoyed one last hurrah at E11even Miami before starting football training camp this week. On Friday night, Tennessee Titans linebacker Shaun Phillips and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Marcus Gilbert held court at a VIP table into early Saturday morning. On Saturday night, Tennessee Titans offensive tackle and inspiration for the movie The Blind Side, Michael Oher, was spotted in the club’s party pit popping bottles of Belvedere.
