Last night, high heels came off as celebrities and socialites flocked to the beach where they danced away the night to music by DJ Jus Ske in a magical lantern-lit tent and beachside bonfire. Hosted by Carter Cleveland, Wendi Murdoch and Dasha Zhukova, the Louis Vuitton barbecue celebrated the Art.sy gallery, museum and content partners. This will undoubtably be one the week’s top events.
The entrance to the Soho house was a scene within itself, with hundreds trying to make their way in but the invite-only party only allowed an impressive guest list of attendees such as Adrien Brody, Pharrell Williams, Roberto Cavalli, Naomi Campbell, Eva Chow, Brett Ratner, Val Kilmer, Vito Shnabel, Aby Rosen, Nadja Swarovski, Nicky and Paris Hilton, just to name a few.
Art.sy is a new website founded by Carter Cleveland that helps users discover art from an expansive and dynamic inventory of art from the world’s leading galleries, private collections and museums. Art.sy will launch in spring 2012
