Beach Ball

| August 25, 2011 | Parties National

A funny thing happened at Miami's Splashion event: "People are actually early?" gulped confused doormen and guest list holders as the crowd outside LIV at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach grew larger and more eager. As the unofficial kickoff to Miami Swim Week, the party drew more than 800 guests. Once inside, attendees were treated to Cointreau cocktails and Voga wine, cupcakes, mini spa services from Elemis and plenty of swag to take home by evening's end. The highlight of the event was a swimwear fashion show, sponsored by The Collection Porsche and styled by Daniella Sredni, featuring styles from Becca by Rebecca Virtue, Betsey Johnson, La Martina, Jag, Jantzen, Masquenada, My Best Friend’s Closet, Perry Ellis Swim and Poupette St Barth. Throughout the runway spectacle, amidst the floor level's VIP booths, DJ Irie kept the evening alive with tunes both old and new. On the guest list: David Edelstein, Lazaro Arias, Jason Clarke, Phil Goldfarb, Katy Stoka, Susanne Birbragher and Kelly Saks. "I never arrive at any party before 10," said publicist Robert Martinez. "This was my one exception for the year." Photography by Erika Delgado & NPLG Images
