DuJour Magazine’s Art Basel Miami kick-off party was an exclusive affair, held at the Delano in South Beach, for those lucky enough to make the invite-only list. The remarkable night of style and sophistication was hosted by DuJour Magazine’s Haley and Jason Binn, and co-hosted by Dee and Tommy Hilfiger and Tony Shafrazi. The friends hosted a special celebration at the Delano Beach Club to honor Marc Quinn, one of the leading artists of his generation. Quinn is known for his sculptures, paintings, and drawings that explore the relationship between art and science, the human body, and the perception of beauty.
After walking through the elegant Delano lobby, guests were greeted by live art performers with avatar-like makeup and colorful costumes with wings. Guests mingled around the infinity pool, which was lined with private cabanas. In true South Florida fashion, some of the invited even dipped their toes in the water as they watched an exotic fire-dancer perform, giving the illusion of walking on water.
Stoli Vodka provided cocktails for the night and tastemakers had the option of grapefruit or lemonade infused beverages. Miami’s most gorgeous servers passed around mouthwatering bites, which included caprice kebabs, chicken pate on toasted baguette, and cheesy puff pastries (Yum!). As the night progressed Hollywood’s hottest started pouring including power-couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Entourage’s Adrien Grenier and supermodel Cindy Crawford.
DuJour Magazine threw an elegant yet laid back bash, which is the perfect mesh of what guests have come to expect of Art Basel.
