Boy George's Basel 2013 Bash at Mansion Miami: A Photo Recap

When Miami heard that the legend, the fashion (and karma) chameleon, and now comeback kid, Boy George, would be coming to play a DJ and an acoustic set during Art Basel Miami Beach week, every mouth was yapping about it from Hialeah to Wilton Manors.

There's no one quite like Boy George. In the '80s, he was one hot mama-looking lad. In the '90s, he knew all that there was to know about The Crying Game, and he transformed into performance guru Leigh Bowery for his musical Taboo. And yes, he ended up in the slammer for a bit in the aughts. But these days, he's touring again with manager and DJ Marc Vedo (they have a residency at Amnesia Ibiza) and he very recently released, This Is What I Do, because this is what George does, ladies and gents.

For Basel 2013, he and Vedo ruled the dance floor at South Beach's Mansion. It was a magnificent way to wrap up a week of insanity. Here's a photo recap of the night.

The night, besides being about seamlessly woven house beats, was a lot about the women and the booze.

Acrobats hung and looped their bodies overhead in the VIP section and in the middle of the main dance floor. They served as a shining pink beacon of nightlife hope after a grueling week of shoveling nose candy up nostrils and taking dumb selfies with art.
