SOCIAL STYLES: Art Basel – Day Five
With all of the fairs open, Friday was all about parties and luncheons, and SocialMiami contributor, stylist Elysze Held, made the rounds from Coconut Grove to Bal Harbour with several stops in between. Featured in this latest Social Styles Art Basel edition are: the Art Nexus party at St. Regis Bal Harbour featuring Brazilian shoe designer Alexandre Birman; the Debut of Talking Heads (The Vent Haven Portraits) and Book Signing with photographer Matthew Rolston at Fontainebleau; the Women in Arts Luncheon; and the “Red and Blue Dinner Series” party benefiting the University of Pennsylvania at the home of Chip Brady and Allison Weiss Brady. The social stars were Basel chic and SocialMiami was there to capture the looks that everyone is talking about.
