When it comes to fashion, Art Basel Miami Beach is the perfect opportunity to let your freak flag fly high. For many Basel revelers, channeling art is just as important as soaking in the sights of the latest Banksy or Picasso. Here, you’ll find 5 attention-seeking trends from Art Basel Miami Beach:
1) Eva & Adele
If you’ve attended any Art Basel Miami Beach, chances are you came across a striking bald couple who stand apart from the masses: Eva & Adele. The otherworldly Berlin-based duo are self-proclaimed “artwork” and always game for a #selfie. Can you say, “Instagram sensation?”
2) Fascinating Fascinators
Now here’s a way to turn heads during that art exhibit: Wear an over-the-top fascinator. Miami’s own gal-about-town Suzy Buckley Woodward (photographed on left) can always be spotted in one of her own cocktail chapeaus, which are bold pieces of art on their own.
From Demi Moore (pictured here in Chanel) to Pharell (in that oversized hat) to Emily Blunt to Kanye West to P. Diddy to Naomi Campbell — industry A-listers flock to Miami Beach to enjoy Art Basel’s weeklong festivities. Heck, locals don’t call it Art Boozel for nothing! The art fair brings with it a slew of parties and highbrow dinners where you may find yourself face to face with your favorite Hollywood starlet.
4) Weirdness & Possible Nudity
When dressing for Art Basel, ask yourself, “What would Miley Cyrus do?” WE KID. In fact, we’re still not quite over those mirrored disco ball nipple covers she wore last time she was here for the prestigious art fair.
5) Life Imitating Art
Can we talk about this dude’s look for a minute? Yep, take a page from designer Anayo Nworjih’s book and rock that splatter paint suit if you’re htting the canvas-filled tents. After all, dressing the part is just as important as the art!
