Art Basel isn’t just about the art. It’s about the stars who come into town to see and be seen. From supermodels, to musicians and the woman who brought sex to the city, everyone’s hanging out at the glitziest soirées.
Just hours after gracing the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show…
Martha Hunt: “The show was incredible. I’m exhausted; it was such a fun week. We were doing press and we did the show. The energy backstage was just indescribable, and it was so much fun.”

Celebrity stylist Patricia Field shows you how art can be worn.
Patricia Field: “Take a classic — a T-shirt, a pair of jeans, a blazer, a motorcycle jacket; everybody likes those things — and then put your art on it.”
The woman behind the “Sex and the City” wardrobe is adding some pop to Basel.
Her pop-up shop at Wynwood’s White Dot Gallery features one-of-a-kind pieces to hang on your wall — or wear on your body.
Patricia Field: “All of these painters who paint the clothing, they also paint canvases and sculptings and so on.”
The stars also aligned at Russell Simmons’ seventh annual Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series Finale. The mega producer collaborates with the brand every year to search for the next big name in visual arts.
Russell Simmons: “Without artists, we don’t as a society grow. We need to nurture the creative spirit.”
His pal Rosario Dawson is a big supporter of the event.
Rosario Dawson: “There’s so many artists that are struggling to get their work seen, especially in an environment like this, where people are really appreciating it.”
