Emily Ratajkowski, Pharrell and more attend W magazine party – WWD

No 50th birthday can pass without a serious celebration. On Wednesday night, W Magazine editor Sara Moonves threw a 70s-themed party at Shun Lee West (host of many W Mag parties lately), surrounded by a host of celebrities, editors, fashion personalities and Suite.

The Lexus sponsorship hit hard the moment we pulled onto the sidewalk, where a giant light box sat holding a shiny Lexus. (Was it a photo shoot? Maybe?) Inside, the Upper West Side restaurant was decked out in red and black decor, with red balloons and streamers floating near the ceiling and, yes, another Lexus-branded rehearsal moment awaited guests.

The real party was in the large back room of the restaurant, where the likes of Justin Theroux, Karlie Kloss, Pharrell Williams, Emily Ratajkowski, Geena Davis, Michaela Coel, Nina Dobrev, Simon Rex, Jeremy Strong, J. Smith Cameron, Anok Yai, Ziwe Fumudoh, Ariel Nicholson, Ella Emhoff, Mark Ronson, Grace Gummer, Myha’la Herrold, Dianna Agron, Sarah Hoover, Jenna Lyons, Christy Turlington Burns, Victor Glemaud, Chlöe Sevigny, Harley Viera-Newton, Jemima Kirke, Huma Abedin, Harris Reed and others came together.

Kloss, co-owner of W Magazine, held court at one of the lower-level stalls, where piles of Chinese food in take-out boxes and wine glasses littered the tables. Dobrev and Ratajkowski pouted for the camera (a friend, not an official photographer, of course) while Kirke was lost in a groove on the dance floor with Cass Bird on Donna Summers’ “Bad Girl.”

Feathers were falling to the floor from various ensembles, the air smelled of hairspray from the many teased styles, and by 11 p.m. the night showed no signs of slowing down.
