Before crashing Twitter with her A-list selfie, Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres prepped for hosting duties wearing her emotions on her “sleeve” in Miami-based designer Alina Villasante’s Peace Love World “i am happy” hoodie. DeGeneres even posted a shot of her comfy backstage wardrobe choice on her now popular Instagram account before heading into the show.

Hot bars

Nightclub & Bar's Top 100 list of the highest-grossing nightclubs in the country included several Miami hot spots.

Mango's was at No. 12 with $20-$25 million, the Clevelander at No. 27 with $15-$20 million, SET at No. 36, Mansion at No. 44 and Club Space at No. 54, the last three all raking in between $10 million and $15 million last year.
