Hollywood met South Beach Saturday night at a party thrown by Maxim magazine at the SLS Hotel. The so called lad’s mag editor-in-chief Kate Lanphear hosted a party to celebrate the worldwide debut of its inaugural 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 including style blogger Jasmine Tosh, model Chantel Jeffries, boxing champion Lennox Lewis and international singer Che’Nelle. Inspired by legendary fashion icon, Brigitte Bardot and featuring two design themes, “Boho” and “Girl Next Door,” the bathing suit collection paid homage to key moments in history led by exceptional women.
Twenty models walked the runway over a lighted pool in over 50 looks. 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, paired with sophisticated color palettes. Guests enjoyed complimentary Peroni beverages, stayed hydrated with FIJI Water and were treated to SKYN products (aka condoms).
As for Rimes and Cibrian, they are fans of Swim Week; the duo was in town last year for the same event (pictured). This year, the country singer is rumored to be with child.
