The Estefans throw grand reopening party for Larios on the Beach


Rain or shine, the Estefans know how to throw a great party.

The weather didn’t behave for the Larios on the Beach grand reopening Thursday night, but inside the newly glitzed-up Ocean Drive spot guests were in a great mood. Attendees sipped on freshly made mojitos and nibbled on hors d’oeuvres of pulled pork, conch fritters, fried meatballs and veggies served with a cilantro aioli.

Owner Emilio Estefan entered in a gray suit and big smile. A little later on, wife Gloria arrived in a sexy red dress and perfectly coiffed hair (how she keeps it so straight and perfect in a rainstorm is a good question).

Tree hugger

Haulover Beach Park just got a little more fashionable.

Ecofriendly designer Stella McCartney — daughter of cute Beatle Paul McCartney — contributed 30 trees to the dog park as part of the community program Million Trees Miami. The tree-planting ceremony went down Friday morning, though Stella, who lives in London; was unable to attend; staffers from her namesake store at Bal Harbour Shops were on hand.

“We are proud of Ms. McCartney’s commitment,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez at the event. “As a business owner, she is demonstrating her community stewardship by increasing shade and beautifying our parks, contributing to something we can all enjoy.”

Selfie op

While older sister Kim plans her wedding in Florence, Italy, Khloe Kardashian may be hanging with her latest companion, French Montana. The rapper tweeted to his 1.74 million followers that he will be in town Sunday at Bamboo club in Miami Beach, which is celebrating the second anniversary of its Prestige Sundays parties. Table reservations: 305-904-5909.
