Peter Davis' Status Update: Amanda Ross Styles Up the W

Peter Davis
Stylist/costume designer Amanda Ross is now the global fashion director of W Hotels Worldwide, consulting for the chain of hotels and creating partnerships between the W and designers. To celebrate, Daniel Benedict toasted Ross with a small, chic cocktail party at the W Lounge in Bryant Park with Euan and Lucy Rellie, Carlos Souza, Richie Rich, Tinsley Mortimer, Miguel Fabregas, Milly de Cabrol, Kelly Cutrone, Fern Mallis and other chicsters raising flutes of champagne. Ross (pictured above with Benedict) is going to be piling up major frequent flyer miles. She leaves this March for the grand opening of the W Barcelona. And more hotels opening this year include: W Retreat and Spa on Vieques Island, W London in Leicester Square and W St. Petersburg. "My passport is sure to get a workout," Ross told me, not looking even the slightest bit jet-lagged.
