Miley Cyrus, Joan Smalls Throw a Rager in 'W' Magazine's September Issue

From a topless Cyrus to male models covered in glitter, this spread has it all.

Generally speaking, W magazine really brings it with its September issues. In 2014, it rounded up the biggest models in the game — Daria Werbowy, Kate Moss, Lara Stone and Raquel Zimmermann, to name a few — for its main fall fashion spread, leaving the entire Fashionista staff wanting to wear nothing but oversized mohair sweaters and black combat boots for the entirety of autumn. 

While that too cool for school spread is still fresh in our minds, Edward Enninful, the magazine's fashion and style director, decided to go in a vastly different direction for the September 2015 issue, which features Gigi Hadid on its cover. In one spread, the likes of Miley Cyrus, Emily Ratajkowski, Joan Smalls, Amber Valetta and more are captured at a secret Los Angeles rager that recalls Studio 54-era debauchery. (L.A., so hot right now.)

On Monday, photographer Mert Alas — one half of the famed duo Mert and Marcus — teased the shoot on his Instagram, and, in the words of "Saturday Night Live" regular Stefon, this party has everything: Victoria's Secret Angel Stella Maxwell feeding her topless, rumored girlfriend Miley Cyrus cake; Joan Smalls undressing in a swimming pool; Amber Valetta tearing the shorts off of a beefy male model; Anna Cleveland getting down and dirty with a disco ball and, of course, Anna Ewers posing normally and looking generally perfect. It's all very wild, and we haven't even seen the full editorial yet. Color us excited for the issue, which hits newsstands Aug. 18.
