Saturday night’s Gareth Pugh dinner hosted by Byrdie Bell at the newly re-launched Baoli-Vita Miami was a sight to see. The soiree was a fabulous way to end 10th year of Art Basel Miami Beach and honored edgy Brit designer Gareth Pugh for his contributions to the worlds of art, fashion and design while celebrating the venue’s new look. The evening also celebrated Gareth’s shoe collaboration with Melissa Plastic Dreams and Michele Levy of Melissa Shoes toasted to the new shoe design with Dom Perignon Luminous.
The back patio of the restaurant was roped off to VIP guests only who sipped on champagne with guests including co-host NYC nightlife entrepreneur Nima Yamini, supermodels Lily Donaldson, Maryna Linchuk and Lisalla Montenegro, Derek Blasberg, Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy), Bryan Greenberg (How to make it in America), 90210 girls Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup, Lorenzo Martone, Kristian Laliberte, Natalie Obradovich, Darrell Hartman, DJ Sal Morale, Matt Dillon and many more. Guests enjoyed Baoli-Vita’s exquisite new Mediterranean cuisine and the unique sights of body-painted, champagne pouring girls before dancing the night away.
