Gala Chair Spotlight: Jenni Coba & Christy Martin
In anticipation of the upcoming event themed "The Party of the Century" and inspired by Truman Capote's "Black & White Ball," SocialMiami photographed the VIZCAYA BALL CHAIRS around the museum's gorgeous grounds.
Why she cares: Vizcaya is an impressive historic landmark uniting our citizens through culture, art, science and care for the environment.
What she’ll wear to the ball: A made-to-order black, Gucci gown with an empire waist that’s trimmed in white crystals. Plus Gucci gloves with feathers and crystals and a custom mask.
Her advice about Vizcaya: Purchase an annual pass! Every visit is new and magical.
Why she cares: Miami is a young city and Vizcaya is a registered museum. It’s 100 years old and our history. When you give to Vizcaya, you’re giving to Miami.
What she’ll wear to the ball: A white, sequined Balmain gown adorned with body jewelry from Maria Elena Headpieces.
Her advice to us about Vizcaya: Go to the café! They serve the best food ever. I know that house inside and out and every time I go, I still see something new.
