Shark Attack! This Weekend's Craziest Party In 16 Pictures

There are all sorts of check lists that hostesses and party planners invariably go through as they work their way from idea to event. And we imagine this weekend's annual Shark Attack rave/rage to be no different — just exceedingly more "turnt up" (as Miley would say) — than your average July 4 party.
Replace the beer with 100 cases of WattsUp wine (named after event host Ben Watts and devoured within two hours), sub your iPod playlist with DJ sets from the likes of Theophilus London and Chelsea Leyland, move the venue from your backyard to the outdoor field and playground at the Montauk Yacht Club, and, oh yeah, ditch the simple bikinis and denim shorts for some of the cutest nighttime party looks of the summer. We got an inside look at the sold-out, VIP event, and are bringing you all the party pics right here to get inspired for your next big bash this weekend. Formal apologies if the slideshow induces a hangover.
