Let us start by saying that Miami’s annual Art Basel is a platform for international artists — particularly emerging ones — to show their work. But if we’re being completely honest, the four-day art fair is now equally known for its seriously epic social events, which regularly draw an A-list crowd. And because of the focus on visual art, the environment is especially conducive to creative dressing, for better or worse. We’re shining a light on some of the best looks we’ve seen on stylish stars at partying it up, or just posing in front of a Miami-appropriate backdrop for a killer Instagram post. Silk, sequins, and lots of skin are all just a few of the things you’ll find on this fashionable group, which includes models, bloggers, and one actress whose name is synonymous with style.
