Dom Pérignon + Lenny Kravitz: This Was Our Fave Art Basel Party

 

 

For experienced “Baselers,” Art Basel Miami Beach is not really just about the art itself, but also, of course, about the lavish and extravagantly-spent-on parties that take place before the fair actually opens to the public. Our pick for the best of them all this year was Dom Pérignon pairing up with Creative Director Lenny Kravitz to recreate The Last Supper (you know, that Da Vinci painting?) at Alan Faena’s gorgeous waterfront home, to celebrate the release of Lenny’s limited edition Dom Pérignon collection – including the Vintage 2008 and Rosé 2006.

 

 

Following Lenny’s ‘Power of Inspiration’ photo exhibition in NYC, which enlightened how inspiration is the catalyst and also the magnet for drawing together the exceptional and the very talented together, this extravagant evening brought that very spirit to life. Lenny and Mr. Faena hosted several of their closest friends for an intimate dinner, whipped up by Chef Francis Mallmann (who counts Gwyneth and Katy Perry amongst his fans), followed by a larger VIP party where the cognoscenti from the art, entertainment and fashion worlds sipped and schmoozed.

We spotted Paris Hilton, Luka Sabbat, Rosario Dawson, Tommy Hilfiger, Sean Penn, Mario Sorrenti, Caroline Vreeland, Leonard Blavatnik, Timo Weiland, Yves Behar, and Caroline Daur and so many more, all grooving ’til the wee hours to a set by everyone’s favorite superstar DJ Diplo.
