MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — "Come quickly, I am drinking the stars!" Dom Pierre Pérignon, creator of the eponymous champagne one said. Last night at Art Basel Miami Beach, it was more about drinking with the stars.
Endless glasses of Dom Pérignon flowed at the most-talked about soirée of Thursday night — the after-party for Aby Rosen and Samantha Boardman’s dinner at the Dutch Miami Beach, thrown by Alex Dellal, Stavros Niarchos, and Vito Schnabel to launch Dom Pérignon's new "Luminous" label at the Wall at the W Hotel. Hoards of pretty young things stood outside the velvet ropes, but only a select few could actually get in.
Once inside, ARTINFO spotted Larry Gagosian (looking bored with his arms at his sides) and Alberto Mugrabi standing on a banquette. Dasha Zhukova looked impeccably gorgeous as usual. Nestled in a corner was Michael Douglas, who had his arm around wife Catherine Zeta-Jones as she smiled and swayed to the music. Anthony Hayden-Guest danced on a table just like he used to do at Studio 54. Nicky Hilton was surrounded by gallery boys Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld, Andy Valmorbida, Joseph Nahmad, and Schnabel. Diane von Furstenberg, Sean Penn, Paris Hilton, Tony Shafrazi, Flo Rida, and Jeffrey Deitch were also among the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd that filled the Wall at capacity.
Dancing and debauchery ensued — and how could it not, with all that champagne? And if you’re wondering what Dom Pérignon’s new Luminous label is, it’s a special edition bottle, not even available for sale (it will only be at a select few nightlife venues), which has a glow in the dark label.
