Bonus Post: The People of Art Week Miami

How I adore the outfits of the people who show up at Miami’s Art Week! The outfits are amazing. I am hoping to continue to update this post throughout the week as I see amazing outfits… but here are the “best of” from yesterday’s Art Basel and Aqua openings (that I managed to capture) – now updating from the top!

This head-to-toe ensemble at Art Basel. The man with an approximately foot-tall headdress is walking away from me, in case it’s not clear. Believed to be sculptor Chakaia Booker David Owens.

I would also like to take a moment to shoutout to the women in yellow wig and yellow jumpsuit with a fake cat on her shoulder at Art Miami – she looked amazing and I regret not taking her photo!

So, send in your photos, and come back for more during the week!
