VIDEO: AMG Miami Beach Polo World Cup
Miami Chic Mingles with the Sport of Kings
Combine the elegance of polo, with its beautiful horses and their glamorous riders, and the sexiness of South Beach and you have AMG Miami Beach Polo World Cup.
With the ocean as its backdrop and four days of perfect weather, this year’s tournament was the epitome of Miami chic as a jet-set crowd came dressed in their finest linen outfits, sun dresses and wide-brimmed hats.
In the end, a resilient Raleigh team took the AMG Miami Beach Polo World Cup title. In Miami, however, the party is as equally important as the polo – if not more so. Grey Groose flowed freely in the AMG suite as Miami society partied like rock stars and a DJ spun the funky beats between matches.

It’s the SOCIAL Manny 50th Edition Commemorative Album with each image hand-picked by Manny Hernandez himself. We start with the Donald and end with King James with 211 images in between featuring Miami’s grandest people. On Wednesday, May 4th, we’ll all gather to celebrate Manny, at which time Manny will receive the SocialMiami “Good Guy” Award, thus solidifying his position as one of the good guys in Miami. The award was created by artist Stephen Gamson exclusively for this event.

Brian Atwood at Saks Bal Harbour
“Everything looks great on a high heel.”- Brian Atwood
Any self-respecting fashionista is familiar with Brian Atwood, designer of high fashion stilettos. Blessed with dashing good looks, Atwood started his career in modeling before being hired by Gianni Versace, where he learned to design ready to wear; but shoes were on his mind, always.
SocialMiami caught up with Atwood in the Fifth Avenue Club at Saks Bal Harbour just prior to his personal appearance later that evening…
Partying Out with Bacardi
SOCIAL Manny has turned 50 – not celebrated social photographer Manny Hernandez mind you – but SocialMiami’s weekly society photo column authored by Manny. To celebrate SOCIAL Manny’s 50th edition, we’re throwing a party on Wednesday, May 4th at Trio on the Bay, Miami’s newest and chicest waterfront restaurant.
Sponsoring the bar for the event is Bacardi, the Miami-based liquor giant that is a huge fan of Manny’s. Their products include Bacardi rum, Grey Goose, Dewers, Martini & Rossi, Bombay Sapphire and more.
The featured drinks for the evening bring several of these brands together in creative concoctions. Here are the mixtures you can expect to enjoy at the SOCIAL Manny celebration.
