ART BASEL & StarShop: Where Rosario Dawson, Gloria Estefan, Vanessa Williams and More Partied!By The DivaGals | January 2, 2018 | Gals On The Town
Hey Divas! We packed a lot into our trip to Miami for Art Basel 2017 with StarShop. Our Divalicious EIC Delaina Dixon and StarShop correspondent Chanel Omari made sure to snap a shot with all your fave celebs!
StarShop, from CEO Jim Morrison and COO Marvin Segel who partnered with Sprint, is the coolest mobile app, website and soon-to-be TV network that pairs original celebrity content with shopping – one of our favorite pastimes – and you can download the app on iTunes or Google Play!
Hair guru Joel Warren invited us to “Beauty is Art” cocktail party to celebrate Salatto Beauty Parlor, his bespoke salon at 1 Hotel South Beach, as well as The Salon Project at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City. Each client’s stylist fulfills all aspects of service, from the moment we walk into the salon to shampooing, styling and completing the transaction – all in one area dedicated to bringing out our best beauty.
Just a few floors down, we attended the Page Six TV party, where we spent some time chatting with the incomparable Gloria Estefan. Gloria Estefan told Chanel that she might be coming out with new music soon. She also revealed her secret to feeling and looking younger (lots of Miami sun) and how important it was for her to give back during the disasters happening in Puerto Rico.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Page Six TV without series co-host Bevy Smith. She gave our Delaina Dixon a big hug – and the two laughed over the Page Six story covering London paper The Telegraph’s gaff of thinking our Divalicious EIC is Princess-to-be Meghan Markle’s mom!
The night ended at THE BALL OF EDEN hosted by Maison Perrier-Jouet. Singer Ellie Goulding gave a rousing performance as we enjoyed flutes of the delicious champagne brand.
On Friday, we got our exclusive StarShop interview with Roger J. Mason who hosted the Remy Martin VIP Experience and celebrity basketball game at W South Beach Bungalow.
We also interviewed model, actress and activist Carmen Carrera who shared some her top beauty secrets for our exclusive StarShop interview – out soon!
We ended the night hanging at Photo Butler event at Soho House South Beach, hosted by the gorgeous Rosario Dawson. Photo Butler is an app that allows you to share your photos collaboratively. We snapped a group photo with our pals, socialite Anna Rothchild (third from left) and comedian Carol J. Castillo (second from right) and mixed media artist, Tiago Margo, who created live-action paintings on canvas throughout the event.
Paris Hilton was there too!
On Saturday evening, our Divalicious EIC joined Phil Collins and his wife Orianne at their Little Dreams Foundation gala, an organization that provides music opportunities for disadvantaged kids. The night’s performances included award-winning Italian artist Laura Pausini, GRAMMY® Award nominee rock singer KT Tunstall, Latin pop Venezuelan singer Nacho and sexy Spanish soul artist Pitingo!
Diva queen Vanessa Williams chatted with us at the Clear Eyes Bridges Alderhold closing party in Wynwood, Miami’s art district.
She shared with Chanel how during this time in Hollywood it’s important it is for us women to stick together and empower one another during this challenging times – she’s definitely Team Female Support System! Vanessa also revealed that she will be coming out with new shows, music and products for 2018 – we can’t wait!
