Forget the bathing suits. Miami Swim Week is a gawkfest of barely-clad models and celebs who love them.
One of the biggest modelizers of our time, Leonardo DiCaprio, was seen Friday night at a sneak preview of Chris Paciello’s soon-to-open Jezebel Bar + Kitchen. Afterward, DiCaprio and his crew hit up Rockwell Nightclub’s swim week kickoff party with a special performance by ASAP Ferg. Also there: DJ Ruckus and model fiance Shanina Shaik, the recently ubiquitous Christina Milian, Dolphins player Reshad Jones and New Orleans Saints player Mark Ingram.
On Saturday, the indefatigable DiCaprio was seen hitting the town again, this time at the Doheny Room At Delano for the Treats Magazine party with the scorching Scott Eastwood and a large group of friends. The group was surrounded by – surprise!- models.
Earlier in the week, former reality star-turned-swimwear-designer Audrina Patridge was seen partying at the Doheny Room with a gal pal, dancing around during the Wildfox Swimwear party the night before her own big show for her Prey Swim line.
Over at the Swim Week kickoff party on the rooftop of the 1 Hotel South Beach, DJ Jazzy Jeff spun ’80s hits along with such favorites as “Hey Ma” and “21 Questions” at the hotel’s weekly Funk Shui party.
On the decks Thursday at Story: Diplo, who finished his set and rushed off to E11even Miami where he was surrounded by – wait for it – swimsuit models.
That same night, the aforementioned Christina Milian rolled up to E11even Miami with a big group, surprising guests when she made her way to the DJ booth in a “sexy white dress,” says our spy. She danced in the party pit until 6 a.m. Rapper Wale joined in on the fun the same night when he decided to do an impromptu set for the riled up crowd.
Spotted hanging out at the W South Beach allegedly here for the fashion shows was Mariah Carey ex Nick Cannon, seen sporting a red turban.
