Ten Swanky Art Basel Parties You're Not Invited To
Obviously, any party thrown by Valentino is going to be an exclusive celebrity heavy event. Held at the Webster, the party will be a collaboration between Valentino, Interview Magazine, and fashion consultant/ founder of Argentinian designer clothes site Underoursky.com, Sofía Sanchez Barrenechea with DJ Chelsea Leyland. This one night party, on Decemeber 5, is a celebration of the new polka dot line by Valentino. Good luck not looking like Cruella de Vil enviously eyeing the spots on that one.
Chanel and Art.sy Beachside BBQ
This celebrity studded BBQ has a rather interesting cast of characters on the guest list. Guess what? It's not you. Thrown by Carter Cleveland, Art.sy CEO; Wendi Murdoch, Art.sy investor most famous for saving her husband (Fox News chairman) Rupert Murdoch from a pie in the face; Pay-Pal co-founder and hedge fund manager Peter Thiel; and Russian socialite Dasha Zhukova, it's an invite-only event at Soho Beach House on December 5. Slated to attend: Drew Barrymore, her art dealer husband Will Kopelman, Russell Simmons, Owen Wilson.
Visionaire Magazine and Net-A-Porter
Known as one of the most extravagant and favored parties of all the Basel events, you have to be kidding yourself to think there is a chance you're getting in, if you're not already on the list. It's being held at Hyde Beach at the SLS South Beach on December 6.
