And the Art Basel sightings just keep on coming.

China’s biggest actress, Maggie Cheung, known as that nation’s Meryl Streep, arrived from Beijing on Wednesday night as a special guest of Audemars Piguet watches. Cheung visited the brand’s booth at the Collectors’ Lounge at the Convention Center. Other visitors: Serena Williams, Nicole Richie and PGA great Sir Nick Faldo. Cheung and Richie attended a private dinner Thursday night in a chalet installed at Miami Marine Stadium. Richie’s guest: dad Lionel.

Ketel One Vodka debuted De Nolet, an installation of the brand’s distillery in Holland at a party on Northwest 24th Street Thursday co-hosted by photographer Randall Slavin, who unveiled never before seen images of Zoe Saldana, Eva Longoria, Ben Stiller and more. Eva arrived with bf Antonio Baston in a Ferrari. Kevin Spacey also swung by.

Dom Perignon celebrated the Limited Edition by Jeff Koons bottle Thursday night at Wall at W Hotel. Among those spotted partying were Lenny Kravitz and his daughter Zoe, Paris and Nicky Hilton, Gerard Butler and A-Rod.

Pamela Anderson celebrated artist Raphael Mazzucco Thursday at the Rose Bar at the Delano, where rapper Theophilus London jumped in the DJ booth for a set.

Lindsay Lohan was holed up Thursday in a Star Island manse, then emerged to attend pal Domingo Zapata’s “The Art of Bullfighting” at Cipriani Downtown Miami.

In non-Basel sightings: Eric Spoelstra spent Monday night with friends at Rok Brgr in Pinecrest. Our eavesdropper tells us that “his buddies were bugging him because they did not have anything named after him.” On the menu: the King James Burger, the Bosh Burger and the DWade Burger. Spoelstra had a salmon salad and the restaurant said they’d name that after him.

    Amber Valletta comes clean: I’m a raging addict

    Amber Valletta isn’t playing the blame game. The model-actress (Hitch, Revenge, Transporter 2) talked candidly in a video for and takes full responsibility for her addiction to drugs and alcohol. In the clip, Valletta says she started young, sniffing markers while growing up in Oklahoma, then graduated to the hard stuff when she began posing for magazines. Even though she has been sober for 25 years, the self proclaimed raging addict still has moments when she wants to “distract herself” because she’s “uncomfortable being a human being.” The 40-year-old mother of one, who is married to volleyball player Chip McCaw, credits looking inward constantly to stay healthy.
