Shaking Things Up

| April 8, 2015 | Parties

The annual Pérez Art Museum Miami gala changed things up for its first-ever January gala. For the occasion, South Beach Wine & Food Festival founder Lee Brian Schrager created a three-part evening to offer various experiences and lured renowned chef Thomas Troisgros from Rio de Janeiro to orchestrate the evening’s two distinct dinner parties.

The Art of the Party Presented by Louis Vuitton (as the celebration was dubbed) featured a who’s-who of familiar faces, including supermodel Karolina Kurkova, singer Pitbull, museum namesake Jorge Pérez and our town’s two top politicos: Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and City of Miami Mayor Manny Diaz.

Schrager’s celebration trifecta didn’t disappoint. The Chef’s Table portion of the night featured a four-course dinner, lots of Dom Pérignon and a 90-minute concert by Nicole Henry. The Supper Club part took over PAMM’s second-floor exhibition galleries with an extravagant buffet and a sudden 20-person flash mob that emerged from the crowd dancing to Fergie’s “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody.” Then there was the Remix afterparty, where sax player Pee Wee Ellis and the Batuke Samba Funk band kept attendees dancing and mingling late into the night. –Photography by World Red Eye
