Art Basel Miami kicks off today. A four day convergence of artists, collectors, gallery owners, and the fashion set. In it’s 11th year, the event seems to grow exponentially each season. As I was declining invitations to a number of goings-on, I started to reminisce about Miami and decided I am going to attend next year.
Although we try to go to Florida every winter to visit my mother in Naples and friends in Palm Beach, I have not been to Miami in ages. Last visit I was a judge at Ford Models’ ‘Supermodel of the Year’ contest. At the magazine, we would often go to Miami for a last minute, warm-weather (re)shoot. Something that could be done in a day, like a cover. Even when I was a child, our trips to Miami were brief. My step father was a television producer and we would pop down for a dinner or meeting.
So next year, I will go to Art Basel for a day. A great dress, sandals and swimsuit should be all I need. If I end up staying longer, I will check out The Webster and pick up something chic.
