The temperature may be dropping in most cities across the United States, but Miami is one spot where men and women are bringing the heat. Art Basel, a weekend-long fashion and art celebration which started on December 5 and ended December 8, showcased some of the best creations in the business and along with unique paintings and sculptures comes the fabulous parties that South Florida is known for.
On Friday, December 7, socialites, artists and designers gathered for a get-together hosted by famous photographer Bruce Weber at the Standard Spa, according to The New York Times.
''I just landed; that’s why I’m late,'' said Donna Karan, who partied with people like Calvin Klein, reported the publication. Like most guests, she had a long night ahead of her.
Visionaire Magazine editor and co-founder Cecilia Dean showed off her manners at the event by telling reporters that ''The most important thing is to always say hello to the host.''
The party at the Standard may have been an indication of who's who in the art and fashion world, but that doesn't mean that guests were going to stay too long and wait to be seen. In fact, by 8 p.m., many were already off to the next affair, an upscale dinner hosted by Miami real estate mogul Aby Rosen and his wife, Samantha Boardman at the W Hotel's Dutch Restaurant.
Baseball player Alex Rodriguez, actor Owen Wilson and the Hilton sisters were among those at the event. After attendees finished eating, they made their way to the W's nightclub. Never to miss out on an opportunity to show off her designer handbags or designer shoes, Kim Kardashian and beau Kanye West reportedly arrived around midnight and hit the dance floor with all the other guests.
