One scroll through Instagram this weekend—whether you’re a fan of Formula One like I am or have only ever seen an icon for its docuseries Drive to Survive pop up on Netflix (likely after you wrapped up Beckham)—and you no doubt caught a glimpse of the happenings around the Las Vegas Grand Prix. That’s because in addition to the sport growing at a record pace in the U.S. thanks to the series, countless fashion collabs, F1 content creators, and more, celebrities and influencers were a dime a dozen during the three-day race weekend, at pop ups, parties, and of course, the track, which took over the Las Vegas strip, spanning from Treasure Island to Planet Hollywood, past the Mirage, Bellagio, and Cosmopolitan casinos. Even Monaco, one of the oldest and most prestigious F1 venues, doesn’t bring in the calibre of names that Las Vegas did this weekend.
Mercedes AMG Petronas driver and seven-time World Champion Lewis Hamilton led the charge as he so often does, rocking up to the paddock for media day wearing an all-black Valentino look from the French house’s S/S 24 menswear collection, with a pearl choker from the brand as well as Versace boots. (If you’re a fan of Hamilton’s style, follow @hamazinglew on Instagram to be the first to know when a new look drops.) The following day, he wore another runway look, this time from Pharrell’s S/S 24 collection for Louis Vuitton with IWC’s Pilot’s Perpetual Calendar Top Gun Lake Tahoe watch and Bottega Veneta’s drop aviators (that Kendall Jenner was just seen wearing as well). Lewis Hamilton Fashion Week as some online have penned the weekend continued with custom Bottega Veneta, custom Burberry by Daniel Lee, and a custom Las Vegas-inspired bomber jacket by Donatella Versace herself. “A true Versace man: Bold, fearless and with amazing style,” Versace captioned a photo of the jacket on Instagram. “I looooove that jacket on you, Lewis Hamilton. Always on your team!”
