Art Basel Miami 2011 Re-Cap: Fashion

As we jumped from venue to venue, installation to cocktail hour, we had our eyes peeled for interesting fashion choices this year. This year? The tagging crew “Art Is My Weapon” was ubiquitous – on the streets, on scarfs, and on t-shirts – at all hours of the night. Meanwhile, the boys on the shore tended to have fun with their t-shirt choices – from humorous “Crack” selections, to vibrant colors. The girls got creative with funky accessories-  colorful, textured tights and funky, punky nails dressed up the no-fail LBD choices. (Half the time, cocktails were our best accessory.) Oh – other things we fell head-over-heels over? The endless creativity of street artists’ tattoos, pink buzz cuts, the top costumes at Paris Paris this year, purposefully tacky color combos, and cheeky peek-a-boo derrières. Check it.
