There are few brands that evoke haute and glamour better than Vogue. But whats better than Vogue? (Cover your eyes, Anna Wintour.) Italian Vogue, of course! Even an egomaniac like Tyra Banks knows it. Thats why she upgraded her prize package on this seasons Americas Next Top Model from a spread in the barely fashionable Seventeen to a spot in high-fashion Vogue Italia. And if its good enough for Tyra, you better believe its good enough for Art Basel Miami Beach.
Enter socialite and Paper magazine editor-at-large Peter Davis, who will host Italian Vogues Basel Bash at Set, the only place in Miami where Pucci fabrics, bottle service, and a strict no-riffraff door policy come together to make an alternate reality of South Beach refinement um, well, by nightclub standards. Davis, a born-and-raised Manhattanite, will have the sounds of resident DJ Chicco Secci to help him push the fashion-meets-art soirée over the edge. Sets strict door policy means the cover charge depends on the doormans mood. (And gentlemen, if you arrive alone, the only way youll get in is if you buy a table.)
