F ront Runners Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, talk with students in an ESL class at Miami’s Booker T. Washington Middle School on May 17, 1991.

Royal Treatment More than two decades ago, Queen Elizabeth II paid the Magic City a quick visit, creating a royal frenzy. by jon warech

photography by ap photo/lynne sladky

T

he idea of royalty is not lost on Miami, but the definition may often get muddled in translation. We’re quick to dub anyone who looks fabulous while hosting a party the “king of nightlife” or the “queen of fashion”; we may even bow in respect to a Sir Paul McCartney or Dame Helen Mirren when they sashay into town. But Miami is more the “Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece” kind of royal, the type that Lorde sings about. However, back in May of 1991, actual royalty graced our fair city as Queen Elizabeth II spent 12 hours in Miami on her 13-day tour of the United States. The reaction was very typical of a “back-then Miami.” The local NBC affiliate ran continuous coverage and set up a phone line to update residents on the queen’s every move (this was, after all, before Twitter). Those in the know, like socialites and political bigwigs, sipped Champagne with her at Vizcaya and made their way aboard the royal yacht for a dinner reception with, among others, the Reagans and Fords. Those not invited got as close as they could just to catch a glimpse. As The Miami Herald humor columnist Dave Barry pointed out, not everyone knew what to do. “It has been hilarious watching social Miami, in various stages of grovel, trying to figure out how to act in front of this short lady who never says anything,” he told The New York Times that week. Our best representative may just have been Luz Rivera, a seventh grader who demonstrated a perfect curtsy for the queen when she visited Booker T. Washington Middle School. After all the hoopla, it was that leg of the trip that proved Miami worthy of a royal tour.  OD

F ront Runners In 1937, Amelia Earhart took off from Miami in this Lockheed Electra aircraft in an attempt to fly around the world; a month later she disappeared over the Pacific.

Pioneer Risk-Taker history’s most celebrated female pilot, Amelia Earhart started her final voyage in Miami in June 1937. by juliet izon

photography by sspl/getty images

L

ong before Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 tragically disappeared over the Indian Ocean, pilot Amelia Earhart was at the center of one of aviation’s most famed unsolved mysteries. The first woman to fly nonstop across the US and the Atlantic, and the first person to fly solo across the Pacific, Earhart had even designed a line of clothing for “the woman who lives actively,” including a flying suit that was advertised in Vogue with a two-page spread. On June 1, 1937, Earhart took off from Miami, at what is now Opa-locka Airport, with the goal of flying 29,000 miles around the world. The initial weeks of her voyage went by smoothly as the pilot traveled to South America, Africa, India, and Southeast Asia. But radio contact ceased on July 2, the day Earhart was supposed to land on a nearly invisible airstrip on Howland Island in the mid-Pacific. Despite extensive searching in the area, neither Earhart nor her plane was ever found. Even before liftoff, Earhart understood the risks of such an arduous journey. “Please know I am quite aware of the hazards,” she wrote to her husband, George Putnam. “I want to do it because I want to do it. Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others.” Her words ring as true today as they did more than 70 years ago.  OD

the saying goes. But lucky for us, the flowers are always blooming here in South Florida, whether it’s May or December. We’re a town perpetually in bloom—beautiful, strong, and vibrant 12 months a year. But this month in particular we are focusing on the beautiful, strong, and vibrant women of Miami. Our May/June double issue is devoted to women of influence—women who not only run this town but who infuse it with style, creativity, energy, success, and their presence. From University of Miami President Donna Shalala to South Florida native Jackie Soffer, there are powerful women making a difference in the day-to-day lives of our entire community. Our annual “Real Beauties” feature hones in on the women who are gorgeous both inside and out, and their special importance to the community, philanthropy, and overall well-being of Miami. And last but certainly not least, our part-time resident Shakira not only owns the radio waves but now, as a judge on TV’s The Voice, owns the airwaves, too. As a mother, performer, and philanthropist, she’s also the founder of the Barefoot Foundation, a US-based nonprofit whose mission is to make education universally available to every child. May and June are special months in Miami. It’s the calm after the storm, and the calm before the storm, a time where things tend to slow down a bit. Visitors don’t feel the need to come here for sun—they’re getting their own wherever they live. Our figurative showers—the hard work we put into entertaining the rest of the world all year long—leads to figurative flowers; we get to enjoy the heat and the air and the warm waters all to ourselves, a subtle reminder of why everyone is always rushing down here. I can’t count how many times I’ve seen people hashtag “We live where you vacation” on social media in the past year. I can’t help but smile every time I read that saying. I’ll never post that online—it’s just rubbing it in and bragging, but I certainly don’t mind actually living where other people vacation. Oops, I just said it. Enjoy the sun….

seem the sleepy Miami summers of years past are upon us. But any true local knows that our calendars are still full. There’s a lot going on in the city, as evidenced by all the exciting features we have for you in this issue. This month marks the inaugural Women of Influence Issue, a celebration of the powerful, ambitious, successful women who continually work to make our community thrive. To commemorate this important milestone, we’re honored to feature Shakira on our cover. Not only has the spicy international pop star produced chart-topping hits, but she also recently released a new album, is a doting mom to her 1-year-old son, Milan, and established the Barefoot Foundation to help build schools for the world’s most in-need children. Shakira is the definition of a woman of influence. Inside these pages, you’ll also find our annual “Real Miami Beauties” feature profiling an inspirational group of women of all ages who are each changing Miami for the better. And in the vein of giving back, Ocean Drive is pleased to welcome the 12th annual FedEx/St. Jude Angels and Stars Gala back to the JW Marriott Marquis on Saturday, May 17. This increasingly important event continues to raise muchneeded funds to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s International Outreach Program. As a special treat this summer, we are pleased to be featuring a colorful, Miami-inspired cover from famed artist Peter Max. This artful add-on opens the discussion for the thrilling news about the highly anticipated Maison & Objet show arriving in Miami in May 2015. In this issue, we talk with South Florida’s foremost design experts about why Miami was chosen as the next international destination for the widely renowned show. See you around town….

Laura van Straaten

Van Straaten has written about art and culture for Whitewall, Art Basel Miami Beach magazine, pbs.org, and a number of regional and international publications. As a journalist, she has produced many award-winning broadcasts and multimedia experiences for NBC, CNN, AOL, and other digital, print, and TV companies, and is at work on a theatrical adaptation of a Henry James novella. Van Straaten lives in Manhattan but loves visiting her parents on Brickell Key and scuba diving in the Florida Keys. In this issue, she interviews artist Tracey Emin on page 132.

Coffee & Cocoa Filet

Classic ST E A K HOUSE.

What surprised you most about Tracey Emin? She’s full of

contradictions. She takes her feminism seriously but is provocative in many ways. And, since she’s got a lightning-rod public persona as a tough-as-nails Brit, I was surprised by how funny and fun to talk to she was, and that her lifestyle in Miami is super mellow and private.

Unconventional approach. Enjoy the classic steakhouse in an unexpected way. Our USDA Prime dry-aged steaks, premium seafood and

Suzanne McGee

McGee has contributed to publications such as Barron’s and Art+Auction, writing on topics as eclectic as philanthropy and financial engineering. In this issue, she profiles University of Miami President Donna Shalala on page 94. What surprised you most about Donna Shalala?

She’s a massive sports fan! I’ve always encountered college leaders who were focused on academics or athletics, so it’s refreshing to talk to someone who doesn’t see them as mutually exclusive. What would you be interested in seeing her accomplish next? Given that incomes are flatlining while college costs have soared, I’ll be interested to see how Shalala responds in terms of making education more accessible and affordable.

Sue Hostetler

The editor-in-chief of Art Basel Miami Beach magazine, Hostetler is also a consultant to the website art.sy, a past Suncoast Emmy Award winner, and the author of three books, including Hip Hollywood Homes. Hostetler gives a preview of the upcoming Art Basel in Hong Kong on page 138. Which artist and gallery would you be excited to see at Art Basel in Hong Kong? I would run straight for the Lehmann Maupin

booth to see Korean artist Lee Bul’s work. She is a huge rising star, and I adore her complex sculptures and installations. David Maupin is a genius at spotting young talent (and is a member of the ABHK selection committee). If money were no object, whose work would you collect? Gerhard Richter and Urs Fischer.

Eva Longoria celebrates her Ocean Drive cover at Cavalli Miami. Dress, David Koma. Bracelet, Cartier.

ll eyes were on Eva Longoria when she stepped into her Ocean Drive March issue cover party at Cavalli Miami in South Beach’s posh South of Fifth neighborhood. The Latin actress, showing off newly chopped flirty bangs, sizzled in a red-hot David Koma mini and nude T-strap sandals. Celebrating her 39th birthday one night early, Longoria enjoyed herself among a gaggle of girlfriends and her doting beau, Jose Antonio Baston, who joined his leading lady for dinner at Cavalli prior to the party. “I love being in Miami,” says Longoria. “It’s great to spend so much time here; I went waterskiing all day!” The Desperate Housewife-turned-producer had spent her day soaking up the sun and surf. After dinner, Longoria continued the celebrations upstairs at Cavalli, where her girlfriends and her mane man, Ken Paves, joined her for dancing and drinks. The evening ended with a sweet twist, when the birthdaygirl was presented with a surprise cake that featured a sugarcoated icing version of her Ocean Drive cover.

Keeping one foot on the beach… Shalala may have an official residence, but she also keeps a little apartment on Ocean Drive. “It’s where friends and family stay when they come to visit, because they all want to go to the beach.”

Riding in the backseat for all of it was Jon Paul Pérez, Jorge’s son, who would tag along with his father as he bounced from site to site, checking up on The Related Group’s latest projects. “Those were my Saturdays,” says Jon Paul. “After the soccer games, he would take us to the leasing centers and the models, since at that time he was doing rental properties. I always enjoyed visiting projects and learning what it was my father did, and I’ve been able to pick up on it fast.” That was the plan from the beginning—to transform the young boy into The Related Group’s eventual leader. The company, which currently has a $10.7 billion portfolio, has not only changed the landscape of South Florida but also made a name for itself around the globe. And Jon Paul has seen the worldwide success firsthand.

Home Away from Home Before success in Aventura, Turnberry Associates’ jackie soffer recalls a life in North Beach. by jon warech

T

urnberry Associates founder Don Soffer helped build Aventura—he’s the billionaire developer behind many of its landmarks such as the Aventura Mall and Turnberry Isle Miami. He raised his family next door to Jimmy Connors, hosted Pro-Am tennis tournaments with Brooke Shields, and sent his high schoolaged daughter Jackie backstage at a Van Halen concert with tennis star Vitas Gerulaitis. (“I was in shell shock from that,” she recalls.) Before there was Aventura, for Jackie Soffer, today the cochair and CEO of Turnberry Associates, there was Miami Beach. Miami Beach in the 1970s was a far cry from today’s Miami Beach that attracts visitors from around the world. South Beach—as it is currently geographically defined—was, as Soffer calls it, “God’s waiting room” with elderly residents sitting on porches as far as the eye could see. Her Miami Beach—which ran mainly from 41st Street to 79th Street—had more of a neighborhood vibe.

It was a place where kids could ride bikes or roller-skate, as she did every Friday night in North Shore Open Space Park. “I lived basically off of 50th and Pine Tree Drive—it was a great neighborhood. I have such positive memories,” says Soffer, who attended North Beach Elementary School (notable alumni include Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg) and Nautilus Middle School. “I remember walking home from school sometimes. When I drive that route now, I remember walking it. I had full freedom. My parents were probably a lot more lenient than I am as a parent.” However, the neighborhood wasn’t short on glitz and media attention with residents like the Gibb family and the controversial singer Anita Bryant turning heads in the area. “We used to trick or treat on North Bay Road, but even in those times, our parents would take us to homes of people I knew,” she says. “Anita Bryant was a big continued on page 104

You could do a bunch of things.” Soffer’s grandmother lived at the Harbour House for some time, which meant trips to Jewish delis like Pumpernicks, Rascal House, and Wolfie’s. Those are all gone today, but when in need of a trip down memory lane, Soffer will swing by Athens Juice Bar—a landmark since 1942. “If you want to go somewhere nostalgic, you should go there,” she says. “It’s an old-fashioned Miami Beach juice bar, nothing like this coldpressed modern stuff.” Today, Soffer sees Miami Beach as more international, more sophisticated than it was during her childhood. However, when she wants it, there are still hidden pockets with that classic neighborhood feel. “There are little local places you can go, like Purdy Avenue with Fresh Market, Lucali, and Panther Coffee, where it feels like a community,” she says. “That to me is great.”  OD

It’s a little bit fantasy-like, and I think it always was.” In the 1970s, Miami “club life” meant going to country clubs for tennis or swimming during the day and evening social hour. “There was the Palm Bay Club, then there was the Jockey Club, then the Cricket Club, and then eventually there was Turnberry,” she says. “The nightclub action at the time was in these different clubs. We used to go during the day to go to the pool; the pool at the Jockey Club was a very social atmosphere.” In those days, most places were kid-friendly, and Soffer would go with her family to Benihana and swing by a neighboring trampoline park, where she’d spend hours bouncing around, or walk around Fun Fair, a child’s paradise with food and games.

f working together puts an otherwise solid relationship to the test, Ariel Tomat and Carina Radonich of Finish My Condo, a luxury general contractor company, could teach the course on how to make it successful. The husband-andwife team, who celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary in September, create model residences at some of South Florida’s most desirable addresses, including Paramount Bay, Acqualina, Canyon Ranch, and the St. Regis, as well as custom-build the homes of local celebrities. Currently, Radonich and Tomat are finishing a 4,000-square-foot model loft at Ocean House. The multi­ million-dollar redesign in the exclusive South of Fifth enclave will mix stainless steel and exotic woods for a fresh, contemporary vibe and include furnishings by Brazilian design company Artefacto. “The people coming to Miami have money and don’t need to show it,” Radonich says. “They’re looking for something minimal, beautiful, and smart. Elegance in the truest sense of the word.” Radonich, a vivacious personality who spent more than 10 years working for the nation’s leading real estate brokerages, including Fort Lauderdale’s Galleria Collection of Fine Homes, taps into her extensive network at the onset of each project. Then, if clients can dream it, Tomat, a former industrial engineer, “can build it from the ground up”—from the classic to the ultramodern, such as the floating white onyx floors with underlying LED lights that they recently created for one client on North Bay Road. Says Radonich, “If a problem presents itself, it is only because a solution already exists.” Married for two decades, the couple have only been in business together since 2007; however, they make sure to keep home and office life very much separate. “We leave work talk for the office,” says Tomat. “When we [cross] the threshold of our home, it becomes our sanctuary.” Family—including the couple’s two children, ages 9 and 11, continues to fuel their work with Finish My Condo. “When you see clients who are so thrilled that they’re literally moved to tears, you realize you’re the architect of the most important moment of their life,” says Radonich. “Home is where the best moments are shared.” finishmycondo.com  OD

here are only a handful of major TV networks operating from offices in South Florida—Univision, Telemundo, MTV Networks Latin America, and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez’s new El Rey Network, to name a few. And over the past 20 years, Antoinette Zel has been at the helm of most of them. But after resigning as COO of El Rey in March when the company relocated to New York, Zel knew it was time to chart a different path. With a unique and impressive pedigree in both corporate media at Viacom and NBC, and ad agency experience as the CEO of award-winning La Comunidad, Zel is now going out on her own with a start-up venture focusing on social media. Here she talks with Ocean Drive about today’s media landscape, the power of our own social networks, and life in Miami.

t’s hard to imagine anything more beautiful than Necker Island, Richard Branson’s private, luxury island sanctuary in the British Virgin Islands. But Samantha Cox, who lived there for four years as Branson’s personal assistant, believes she may have found something even better. Cox is the new director of VIP services at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino—a 140,000-square-foot casino, Hard Rock Live concert venue (Counting Crows and Weezer are playing in June), and 500-room hotel and spa. “I look after all the high rollers and any celebrities that we have here—either staying in-house or playing at Hard Rock Live—anything they want, any time,” says Cox, who often greets VIPs’ private jets with a limo on the tarmac in Fort Lauderdale. “I have Although working guests who have lost a million dollars still com24/7, Cox does find ing back and having a great time.” time to enjoy her Born in England, Cox moved Down Under paradise. “I live in a beautiful apartment to be the assistant to the COO of Virgin block with an Australia before the owner of the company, bilamazing pool in lionaire Richard Branson, offered her a position downtown Fort on Necker in the Caribbean.

emember the horrors of high school—the nausea-inducing process of finding where to sit in the cafeteria, between the coveted “cool kids’ ” table and sidelined cerebral nerds? That’s not exactly the best climate in which to cultivate a girl’s interest in science, let alone computers, but in a 21st-century job market, tech skills are the ticket. Sadly, girls often avoid the tech-savvy education tracks, but Girls Who Code is out to change all that. Launched in Manhattan in 2012 by Reshma Saujani, a lawyer and former deputy public advocate for New York City, Girls Who Code prepares young women for the 21st century via intensive summer programs that draw out and hone their computer science acumen. The genesis for the idea came when Saujani was on the campaign trail (she ran for Congress in 2010) and saw a hundred boys in a computer lab in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, but just one continued on page 116

“ There are little to no great female role models in the technical field.”

Amanda Chen and Sheree Lewis at Goldman Sachs, one of many companies in NYC hosting Girls Who Code’s summer immersion programs. Saujani hopes to find similar opportunities in Miami.

Code Trip

Meredith Tannor

New York high school senior Meredith Tannor attended Girls Who Code last summer. Here she describes what’s on the horizon for Miami. What was your interest in computer science before Girls Who Code? I was always the tech geek in my house that would fix the computers, but I never really knew what I wanted to do with that hidden talent. Your parents didn’t grow up with tech. Did that prompt you to take the lead? It put me in the position where I had to teach myself and then teach them how to use computer programs. How do guys respond to you knowing how to code? A lot of people think guys are intimidated by it, but my experience is that they go, “Whoa, this girl’s really cool!” Why do you think so few girls seem interested in tech? I think it’s intimidation. You walk into a room filled with guys, or people that aren’t like you, and you think that you can’t do it. So people just kind of back away and look for something more comfortable. For me, I was not intimidated. What was your final project for Girls Who Code? I looked around for any problem, and the one I found was refilling transportation cards [for New York public transportation]. You can only do it at subway stations, which is inconvenient if you want to take buses. I set out to make an app that lets you refill your MetroCard on your phone rather than at the machines. I’ve submitted it to an MTA app challenge. What was the most inspiring moment you had at Girls Who Code? On the night before the first day of classes, I told my friends I had to go home to get up early for this program. I said, “Don’t worry, this is the only day I’m going, and then I’m never going again.” But that first day we had this speaker—she was this entrepreneur, Lauren Maillian Bias. She was young and beautiful. She was so confident in her life. Hearing her speak made me want to be like that. What’s your next step? I intend to study computer science as my major. I’ve applied to University of Michigan, USC, Virginia Tech, and the University of Wisconsin—those are my top four.

continued from page 114 girl. “My family came here as refugees from Uganda,” she says. “And one of the reasons why I think that they were given status was because they had technical talent, and the United States in the ’70s was desperate for engineers. I grew up with a role model who was brilliant at her job.” By 2020, there will be an estimated 1.4 million computer science jobs in the US, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but currently just 18 percent of computer science graduates are women, according to figures from the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics. In other words, women are missing out on opportunity, and we, as a society, are missing out on some serious female talent. It bodes for a gender left behind. Why the dearth of female tech interest? “It’s not aptitude; I think it’s pop culture,” offers Saujani. “You can’t be what you can’t see, and there are little to no great female role models that are in the technical field.” To launch the program, Saujani raised funds from companies such as Google, Twitter, and Intel, and she and her executive director strategized by quizzing tech companies about what they sought in female job applicants. One common complaint was that by the time companies recruited on campuses, girls were already too far behind in computer science skills. The —reshma saujani program needed to catch girls at a younger age. Saujani and her team developed an immersive summer program for high school girls, and brainstormed with people who worked in academic and tech fields to create a curriculum that includes robotics, animation, and mobile app development, but also offered leadership lectures and field trips to local tech companies. So far, they’ve launched in five cities—New York, Detroit, San Francisco, San Jose, and now Miami, where the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Verizon Foundation are helping with funding. “Miami is a burgeoning tech hub,” says Saujani. “It’s got a diverse community of companies. I also think that not everyone is going to go work at Google or Twitter—mid-market start-ups and technology companies are where the majority of these women are going to get jobs.” continued on page 118

Previous girl coders have built apps to help the disabled function better in the New York City subway system; one created an app for book clubs, another a video game. “You can be anything you want, right?” says Saujani. “I do believe that the next Instagram or Facebook or Twitter will come out of Girls Who Code, and that’s what’s going to revolutionize demand and interest.” girlswhocode.com  OD

Heat & Soul With his annual DJ IRIE Weekend set to rock Miami Beach, our town’s favorite spin master gives the lowdown on this year’s fun-in-the-sun events. by jordi lippe

T

he definition of Miami Beach, it can be argued, is sun, fun, and, of course, the ocean. So when world-renowned DJ and Miami resident DJ Irie learned that many of the city’s disadvantaged young people hadn’t even had the chance to dig their toes into the sand, he set out to make a change. “I was visiting at this one school and was telling the kids how I lived in Miami Beach,” recalls Ian Grocher, aka DJ Irie, the Miami Heat’s official DJ for more than a decade. “One boy asked if I had ever actually been to the beach, and I said, ‘Of course.’ He then asked me what it was like, since he had never set foot on a beach, even though his school was 10 miles from one.” That simple conversation helped spur the DJ (who was born in St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands and raised in Miami and Jamaica) to launch the Irie Foundation, which supports Miami’s at-risk youth through mentorship programs, cultural experiences, and scholarship opportunities. Programs are held throughout the year; however, it’s the annual DJ Irie Weekend, kicking off June 19, that draws firstclass athletes and Hollywood’s hottest. Started in 2004, this three-day festival of music, food, sports, and entertainment has quickly become one of the city’s most sought-after tickets. “We want people to come out and really have a lot of fun and raise awareness for the foundation,” says Irie of the celebrity-studded event. “It draws in people from all over the world.” The weekend’s biggest attraction is the golf tournament held at the Miami Beach Golf Club, and with 144 slots already filled, DJ Irie and his organization are looking into expanding to multiple

courses next year. “No other DJ has a golf tournament, so we’re changing the game and bringing a party to the golf course,” he says. Festivities kick off June 19 with a VIP party followed by the popular golf tournament the next morning and a concert later that night. In previous years, artists such as LMFAO, Ne-Yo, Jamie Foxx, and Flo Rida have performed, while A-listers such as Dan Marino, Carmelo Anthony, Luke Wilson, Gabrielle Union, and players from the Heat are regularly in attendance. “DJ Irie’s been a part of the Heat for many years,” says team superstar Dwyane Wade. “To know the guy is to love the guy, which is a big part of why his Irie Weekend event is such a success. My teammates and I are happy to support his charity.” On Saturday, June 20, the two groups—the stars and the kids supported by the foundation—have the opportunity to comingle. —dj irie “We wanted to have an event that our kids could participate in with the celebrities,” says Irie. “We came up with this really cool bowling tournament at Lucky Strike here on the beach. It’s a huge hit!” In addition to all the smiles the weekend brings, the financial support is crucial to the success of the foundation’s mission. “We are committed to helping kids get on the right track and strive for successful futures,” says Irie of his eponymous foundation. “When we do the weekend, the money we raise goes towards those programs and helps create well-rounded individuals. What’s better than that?” The 10th annual Irie Weekend takes place June 19–21; for a full schedule of events and locations, visit irieweekend.com.  OD

an you imagine anything more blissful than swimming through the air, unburdened of your weight and gravity itself? Take a second to really think about it. Chances are you’ll come up short. If you’ve seen footage of astronauts floating in space stations and have found yourself jealous, you now have something to add to your bucket list: an opportunity to experience weightlessness, thanks to the Zero-G Experience. Founded in 2004 by futurist/entrepreneur Peter H. Diamandis and Byron K. Lichtenberg, a former NASA astronaut, Zero-G conducts flights on a specially modified Boeing 727 that jets high into the atmosphere and performs a series of parabolic arcs to give passengers on board a taste of weightlessness. “They knew the average person would not get to experience space in their lifetime, so it was the closest thing to feeling what it would be like up there without having to leave the atmosphere,” says Terese Brewster, the president and chief operating officer of Zero-G. Since launching a decade ago, more than 12,000 people have boarded the Zero-G plane, many of them celebrities who were just as geeked out

as the average Joe. Physicist Stephen Hawking apparently still raves about his flight, and buxom supermodel Kate Upton was recently photographed during her float for the Sports Illustrated 50th-anniversary Swimsuit Issue. However, superstars are far from the most VIP to take the flight. “Flying with celebrities has been great, but really, the most touching flights are ones we’ve flown with kids from the Make-A-Wish Foundation or guys from the Wounded Warrior Project,” says Brewster. “We also did a flight with Nickelodeon for a show called The View from My Chair for children who have been in wheelchairs their whole life. For some of them it was the first time they were able to stand up straight.” A Zero-G flight costs exponentially more than the average plane ticket—$4,950 per passenger—but given that you’re probably not going to astronaut training anytime soon, it might be entirely worth it. “It’s so different from any other experience you can have,” says Brewster. “It’s otherworldly.” Zero-G will be staging flights in Miami on Saturday, May 24, and Sunday, May 25.

Artist Tracey Emin, seen here drawing in her studio, creates controversial works that can be found in the private collections of everyone from Madonna to Joan Collins and Elton John.

T

he first time British artist Tracey Emin visited Miami, the city left its mark on her—and not just in the metaphorical sense. “I got stung on my elbow by jellyfish and still have scars!” says Emin, an avid swimmer, of that initial trip to Miami Beach. But she loved the Magic City, so much so that she decided to take up a residence here. Miami, so far, has proven to be a welcoming respite for the boundary-pushing creator. “I wish I had come here earlier,” she says of her newfound retreat, near the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Indian Creek, demurring to give further details to protect her privacy. “I love the architecture of Miami. There’s a fecundity in Miami; I feel good….” Her new South Florida apartment is just one of the luxuries that, after an upbringing marked by instability, Emin says she now allows herself. “My big indulgence now is property,” explains the artist, whose pieces can be found in the private collections of such high-profile connoisseurs as Joan Collins, David Bowie, Elton John, and Madonna. “I was invited to stay in people’s houses and got tired of always being the guest.” In contrast to her loud art, Emin herself keeps a low profile while in town, and her Miami routine is a restorative one. “I [go] to rest and be peaceful, not to socialize,” says Emin, who lists Soho Beach House, The Dutch, and yes, even Walgreens, as a few of her favorite local spots. continued on page 134

“The noisy arguments around Tracey Emin’s work are good for art.” —jeannette winterson including famous fans like actor Kevin Spacey, artists Mickalene Thomas and Damien Hirst, photographer Bruce Weber, and Pharrell Williams. Others found Emin’s work distasteful; few are neutral about her pieces. But as author Jeannette Winterson wrote, “The noisy arguments around Emin’s work are good for art. Nothing is worse for art than a rarefied remote state, where the thing languishes in the lands of connoisseurship and curators.” It was two other controversial art installations that initially put Emin on the international map: her famously slept-in My Bed (1998) and her Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963–1995 (1995), a tent appliquéd with the names of everyone she has ever shared a bed with, platonically or otherwise. Winterson wrote that those two works in particular had a “huge impact— Duchamp ‘Urinal’ impact, or Warhol ‘Soup Can’ impact—because they found a way of containing the mesmeric and iconic properties of art within the most commonplace of objects.” Miami, with our gallimaufry of cultures, our collection of immigrants, is a town where one has the power and freedom to reinvent oneself. “Power for me is to have choice, choice of freedom, choice of identity. I’m not Mrs. Anybody; I am Tracey Emin. I have my own autonomy.” Says Emin, “I’ve been doing what I do for so long, they realize that I’m not going away. This is my work; this is my life. I’m an artist and I’m here to stay.”  OD

continued from page 132 “I love the terrace of my little apartment. I sit there drinking tea and watch the clouds go by.” She even brought a cadre of UK pals to see her new work and new life here. “I had a couple hundred people over from London and the majority really loved Miami.” In a spirit of reciprocation, the artist too has left a lasting impression on the Magic City: Emin’s neon creations have been snatched up by private art collectors all along the beach; hotels such as the Fontainebleau hosted her book signing and displayed her work; and her recent neon show, “Angel Without You”—a first in the US for her—was on display this spring at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami. All of it solidified her love affair with Miami. “I really love the sun beds; they remind me of where I grew up,” says Emin. “Miami is a major contradiction of man-made [development] and architecture that has completely taken over. But yet the nature is ever present.” Her neon exhibition at MOCA—illuminated sayings spelled out in Emin’s own handwriting, complete with her own capitalization and punctuation peccadilloes—captured pithy but personal emotional tidbits that seemed like the mantras, mottoes, and maxims one might scribble in a diary: you forgot to kiss my soul; every part of me’s bleeding; i loved you more than i can love; and people like you need to fuck people like me—a particularly popular piece that had fans queued up waiting to take selfies. “I’ve wanted to do a pure neon show for a long time,” says Emin, who was brought up in an area with lots of neon and nightlife, the somewhat tawdry seaside town of Margate, on a peninsula east of London. Miami, with its neon-lit history, was the perfect place to debut her work. “[They] work on the level where it’s like the lyrics to a song that you think you know but you don’t,” she says. “It’s not one dimension.” The words expressed in fluorescence were of an intimate nature, things you might hide, yet here, Emin turned them into bright, brazen signage akin to Washington Avenue marquees. That very tension made them artful to some,

Yo Mama (2003), Wangechi Mutu.

Life Source “M

y work is based on the female body because it’s based on my experience,” says Wangechi Mutu, a Kenya-born, New Yorkbased artist. “It’s based on the experience of being human, and I think we are all part woman because we are all from our mothers.” That kind of layering of identity, physicality, and humanity is revealed within Mutu’s upcoming exhibition “A Fantastic Journey,” on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. The heavily collage-based pieces utilize female forms intricately carved from the pages of National Geographic and glossy fashion magazines. The resulting pictures are stunning, sharp-edged yet fantastical, creating otherworldly and magical effects. “She is a deeply content-rich person and artist,” says the museum’s

interim director and chief curator, Alex Gartenfeld, who suggests that Mutu’s work is not just collage but incorporates multidisciplinary forms that reflect an impressive range of her talents, from sculpture to video. According to Mutu, the female figure is a “grounding force” in her work, but she pulls in other issues such as race, family, media, globalization, and the diaspora. These elements collide and coalesce into landscapes and bodyscapes only Mutu could dream possible. “It’s going to be phenomenally beautiful,” muses Gartenfeld of the exhibition. “It’s a very transportive show.” “Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey” is on display through July 6 at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, 770 NE 125th St., 305-893-6211; mocanomi.org  OD

How the East Has Won It’s a new cultural revolution as Art Basel in Hong Kong takes asia by storm. by sue hostetler

“Art Basel in Hong Kong aspires to provide a fair for Asia of global stature.” —Magnus Renfrew

awarded to one of nearly 30 participants of this sector at the end of the week, a unique element of AB in HK that is not seen at other fairs. Much preshow buzz has surrounded the funky Irish gallery Mother’s Tankstation and its presentation of the work of Sydney-based artist Noel McKenna, whose figurative pieces contemplate the human condition and make him one to watch in Discoveries. Also creating excitement is the Encounters sector—featuring large-scale sculptural and installation pieces—being curated by Japan’s highly regarded Yuko Hasegawa of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. “Last year, Yuko’s selection spurred a compelling discourse around contrasting generational and cultural approaches to artistic practices,” says Renfrew. “I have every confidence that her program this year will again present ambitious works that act as conversation points throughout the exhibition halls.” And one of Miami’s most beloved events—the Film sector—will debut in Hong Kong this year, developed by Chinese multimedia artist and curator Li Zhenhua and hosted in partnership with the Hong Kong Arts Centre. These types of collaborations with local institutions help Art Basel recognize, support, and promote the exploding contemporary art scene in Hong Kong. Not only is the government pouring billions of dollars into developing a cultural district in West Kowloon, but the new M+, an ambitious Herzog & de Meuron-designed Magnus world-class museum, slated for completion in 2017, furRenfrew ther illustrates Hong Kong’s commitment to its future support of the visual arts. But maybe the This year’s event at the Hong Kong Convention and most significant indicator is the number of Exhibition Centre features 245 respected Western galleries, like Gagosian, of the world’s most influential galleries from 39 countries.

n just a few short years, Hong Kong has been transformed from a city that many considered a cultural desert into the fourth-largest global market for contemporary art, according to Artprice, an art market information source, with more than $130 million sold in 2013, partially due to record-setting auctions and the rise of billionaire art collectors in China. As recently as 2008, there were no major art fairs, but the visionaries behind the powerful Art Basel shows in Switzerland and Miami Beach helped push the cultural renaissance forward last year when they debuted Art Basel in Hong Kong. Asia’s second annual art fair—which opens Thursday, May 15, and features a slate of 245 of the world’s most influential galleries from 39 countries—will help add even more international credibility and exposure to the Asian art market. “Every fair has its own mission and vision,” says show director Magnus Renfrew, “and Art Basel in Hong Kong aspires to provide a fair for Asia of global stature and the highest quality while retaining its unique regional flavor. Hong Kong has long been regarded as the portal connecting the East and the West. It is a major financial hub and as such is designed to allow for more professional and efficient transactions.” This year’s show will be marked by a continuation of the strong programming that is a hallmark of the two other Art Basel shows. The Discoveries sector, which is dedicated to solo and two-person exhibitions by emerging artists, is shaping up to be particularly exceptional. A $25,000 prize will be

continued from page 138 which have opened Hong Kong outposts over the last few years. These dealers, along with influential homegrown stalwarts such as 10 Chancery Lane, Galerie OraOra, and Pearl Lam, are instrumental in developing and nurturing the careers of artists and collections in the region. According to Renfrew, these relationships with the local galleries and institutions (including Asia Art Archive, Para/Site, the Asia Society, and Spring Workshop) are imperative to AB in HK as they create a show “grounded in the city.” “We want to promote long-term arts infrastructure development and encourage associated programming across the city,” says Renfrew. “The growth of Hong Kong’s museum sector and contemporary arts education will truly impact the larger discourse in the city, and that is something that we aim—through long-term partnerships—to cultivate.” The fair’s impact and thematic reach is sure to be much broader than just the Asian region. One needs to look no further than the talks planned as part of the Conversations and Salon program. A discussion titled the “Global Art World/Making Biennials” will feature luminaries Juliana Engberg,

artistic director of the 2014 Biennale of Sydney and artistic director of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art; Eungie Joo, curator of the 2015 Sharjah Biennial; and Jessica Morgan, artistic director of the 10th Gwangju Biennale and the Daskalopoulos curator, International Art at the Tate Modern, London, moderated by Hou Hanru, artistic director at Maxxi Museum in Rome. “This is a conversation that has real international relevancy, reflecting the transitional reality of today’s art world,” explains Renfrew. Programming such as this, coupled with a rapidly maturing Asian art market and the resurgence of Chinese art exhibitions across the US, will undoubtedly help draw record numbers of highly informed collectors to the fair this month. With so much anticipation building around the fair, what does Renfrew most look forward to? “The highlight is exposing new audiences to the depth of work from the broader Asian region, and being part of that experience of discovery when collectors come to know artists they have not yet seen, or when curators have an opportunity to join in dialogue with artists whose work they have long followed.” artbasel.com/en/hong-kong OD

Local Lens Dennis Scholl, Vice President/ Arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Miami “What stood out to me when I met the art community for Art Basel in Hong Kong was their enthusiasm for their own artistic product. It spurred considerable attention and activity from the Western collecting world. There are collectors who are building Chinese-only collections, feeling that work is at a high level and still fairly valued.”

Last year’s AB in HK fair offered a range of thought-provoking art installations.

Bonnie Clearwater, Director and Chief Curator, Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale/Nova Southeastern University “The studio complexes in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai are making it possible for artists to be inspired by each other’s close proximity and provide a strong support system that connects them to collectors, curators, and dealers. There is a network of knowledgeable independent curators that are indispensable for outsiders to navigate the Chinese art world.”

Craig Robins, President of Dacra and Contemporary Art Collector “Art Basel’s presence in Hong Kong is an important validation of the market. The influence is evident within the collections of some of [Miami’s] leading contemporary art collectors like Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz [and] the Fontainebleau, which displays an important piece from Ai Weiwei in one of its public spaces. Miami has such a strong tradition of [multiculturalism] that I think we will see growing interest in the years to come.” Dale Anderson, Palm Beach Art Collector “When I started going to China to collect contemporary Chinese photography more than 12 years ago, the art scene was boiling and these incredible artists exploded onto the scene. Since Art Basel launched in Hong Kong, the dialog between artists, dealers, and collectors [has] become more stimulating as more people are exposed to the work.”

“ Miami is making real strides to become a true cultural destination.”—katerina llanes the museum’s role as both cultural port and social hub. Performers run the genre gamut, with sounds ranging from international club music to urban pop, Chicago juke to Dominican dembow. “These artists aren’t the typical DJs you would hear in a South Beach club,” says Llanes. “They’re part of an international community that focuses on experimental and diverse cross-genre dance music.” These types of out-of-the-box gatherings are part of the reason Miami’s reputation as a creative destination is on the rise. “Even though Miami is

still a young city, it’s making real strides to become a true cultural destination,” says Llanes. “PAMM solidified Miami’s spot among the ranks of New York and Los Angeles by bringing the community a world-class museum. We now have the opportunity to become a permanent location for the exchange of ideas.” On Third Thursdays, those ideas come with a soundtrack. PAMM Presents takes place the third Thursday of every month from 6–9 pm at Pérez Art Museum Miami, 1103 Biscayne Blvd.,

nly in Miami does a night at the museum eschew conventions of hushed voices and art-lined hallways. Instead, PAMM Presents, the outdoor music series that takes place the third Thursday of every month at the Pérez Art Museum Miami, is filled with lasers, fog machines, and pulsating bass. As the moon rises over Biscayne Bay, the city’s cultural set convenes on the museum’s massive waterfront terrace to watch as DJs and musicians send their experimental sounds into the night, an experience further enhanced by video projections, choreographed dancers, and sculptural fabric installations. At the helm of the series is Katerina Llanes, PAMM’s time-based arts coordinator. “The artists I invite are no different than the ones exhibiting in the galleries; they’re just using a different medium,” says Llanes. “PAMM Presents is a way to highlight their work as an essential part of the art landscape.” The museum, it turns out, was conceived and built with this kind of communal get-together in mind. Broad bayside steps are a favored gathering place for Miami’s culturati—some use the terraces for a nocturnal picnic stocked with a bottle or two of vino and an artisanal cheese spread from Verde, the museum’s on-site restaurant. Others congregate on the upper level, below the museum’s dense stalactite-like hanging gardens, transfixed by trippy wall projections and the hypnotic sight of cruise ships rolling into the Port of Miami. In effect, PAMM Presents fuses the vibe of an outdoor indie/electric music festival with the understated glitz of a gallery opening, reflecting

Diane von Furstenberg’s effortless dresses revolutionized fashion when she introduced them in the ’70s.

40 and Fabulous Having just “wrapped” the 40th anniversary of her iconic wrap dress, and with a new boutique in Coral Gables, Diane von Furstenberg has much to celebrate in 2014. by julia ford-carther

A

few moments in the presence of Diane von Furstenberg and immediately the intoxicating charisma of the DVF fashion house is understood. Von Furstenberg is an effervescent force, a true embodiment of her brand, whose empowering message—“Be the woman you want to be!”—speaks directly to her wearers. After all, that’s what the designer’s pioneering wrap dress was all about. Created when von Furstenberg was just 26 years old, the frock revolutionized women’s fashion by simultaneously liberating and feminizing power-female dressing. Forty years later, the designer commemorated her milestone with an exhibition in Los Angeles. The “Journey of a Dress” installation, which drew A-list stylesetters, including Rachel Zoe, Anna Wintour, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Allison Williams, was a look back at the decades-long evolution of the wrap dress featuring vintage DVF advertising, iconic photographs of the designer, and a parade of mannequins modeling the many incarnations of the garment in a variety of patterns and colors. Yet even after four decades in business, the designer is still setting new goals for her brand. “I would like to be as important in accessories as we are in clothes,” says von Furstenberg, 67. Her Coral Gables store in Merrick Park, which opened in November, was designed with that initiative in mind. “There’s so much real estate dedicated to the bags, to the shoes, and to the accessories in general. That is really where the company is going.” For 2014, von Furstenberg updates her waist-accentuating wrap dress with a flirty circle-skirt flare—an added flounce that will appeal to the Miami woman. Long column silhouettes, wide-leg pants, and drop-waist dresses come in Miami-mod patterns of black-and-white geometry with bold strokes of jewel tones. “My brand is very effortless, sexy, on-the-go, which is very much what Miami is about,” the designer says. Dubbed the Grand Canal collection, the clothing’s soft folds, signature prints, and bright hues complement the sun and sand of South Beach. Says von Furstenberg, “The prints are very joyful, right?” Village of Merrick Park, 320 San Lorenzo Ave., Coral Gables, 305-446-4003; dvf.com  OD

Trunk Treasures

Louis Vuitton looks to its iconic travel trunks for a line of fine jewelry and watches out this summer AND PERFECT FOR MIAMI. by lauren finney

With six stores stretching from Aventura down to Coral Gables, Louis Vuitton has established a dominating presence in South Florida. The brand garnered additional exposure during December’s Design Miami, when it transported legendary French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand’s house, La Maison au Bord de l’Eau, directly onto the beach for a show-stopping exhibit. Now Louis Vuitton has turned even more heads in Miami with the new Emprise collection—a glittering array of lemon, amethyst, and smoky quartz gemstones, artfully crafted into pendants, rings, metal bangles, and watches. The line pays tribute to the French fashion house’s signature monogrammed trunks, incorporating distinctive elements such as corner caps, nail heads, and metal framing into the pieces, a modern Miami twist to a classic design. Minimal cocktail rings feature octagonal stones encased in yellow or white gold and outlined in studs, while chain-link tassels hang from the collection’s more intricate drop earrings and necklaces. Most spectacular is a diamond-encrusted gemstone tassel pendant with floating white diamonds that will be hard not to wear out of the boutique. 170 NE 40th St., Miami, 305-573-1366; Aventura Mall, 19501 Biscayne Blvd., 305-866-4470; louisvuitton.com  OD

In a city teeming with loud fashion like Miami, Onia, a luxury men’s beachwear brand, makes a strong statement about simplicity. The line of classic swim trunks, bottoms, tees, and button-downs translates the clean, tailored silhouettes of dress suiting into smart and versatile casualwear. Cofounders Carl Cunow and Nathan Romano, who both grew up frequenting Miami as an escape from winters in New York, focus on fabric and technique to create high-end function. “We were thinking more abstractly,” say Cunow and Romano of the Summer 2014 collection, which uses fresh tone-on-tone textures and a new bonded style that fuses fabrics to create more flexibility. “It was less about where we were going as opposed to how we were going to get there.” Base, 927 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-531-4982; baseworld.com

D

esigner collaborations are ubiquitous these days, but nine years ago, Stella McCartney’s partnership with Adidas was groundbreaking. Now, the first US outpost of Adidas by Stella McCartney has arrived on Lincoln Road. “Miami is the perfect place to showcase the collection focused on style and performance,” says McCartney. Divided into categories for swim, running, cycling, studio, yoga, tennis, and weekenders, the brand has plenty to offer active Miamians, including the new Adidas by Stella McCartney barricade Youth line that caters to the next generation of stylish tennis players and the adizero footwear collection for fashion-forward training. Available in seasonal-chic colors with a cool, transparent mesh accent, the Stella McCartney Adidas adizero 2.0 running shoe is a hip fusion of style and performance-enhancing technology.

Coupled with Adidas’ sprintframe design, these trainers not only look light, but feel light, too. Considering that both Stella McCartney and Adidas focus on sustainability efforts in their businesses, it’s no surprise that the collection includes 39 highly sustainable pieces from apparel to accessories in which Adidas Better Place Program principles—low waste; eco-friendly materials like organic cotton, recycled yarn, and Tencel—are employed to reduce the carbon footprint. The newest piece of technology, called Dry Dye, is used on select tank tops and shorts and eliminates the need for water in the dyeing process. “I’m really proud to offer a collection that incorporates sustainable elements wherever possible,” says McCartney. “We continuously strive to find new ways to do our bit for the environment.” 1111 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach, 305-532-5455; adidas.com  OD

Sarah Jessica Parker models a pair of Sex and the City-worthy red Lady pumps ($350) from her new SJP Collection.

Color in the City Style and pop-culture phenomenon Sarah Jessica Parker debuts her eponymous shoe and accessories collection at Nordstrom Aventura. by julia ford-carther

“I

wanted to make a beautiful, long-lasting shoe that, in five years, would still be relevant, feel good, and look good,” says Sarah Jessica Parker of her new accessories line, The SJP Collection. Amid a fan frenzy, Parker presented the collection’s Manhattan trench coat, handbags, and shoes at Nordstrom at Aventura Mall. Channeling her wellheeled alter ego, Carrie Bradshaw, Parker wore the line’s Carrie—a glossy, black pointy-toe T-strap pump—for her in-store appearance. “I freakin’ love the Carrie,” she says. “It’s sexy, it’s strong, but it’s still really feminine.” A year in the making, SJP is a collaboration with business partner George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik. It’s a fitting partnership considering Parker made “Manolo” a household name during her sixyear run as Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City. “I wanted to revisit the single sole and focus on colors as neutrals,” she says. “We have three black options out of 32.” The rest, an assortment of peeptoe and traditional pumps, flats, ankle-strap sandals, and booties, stand out in Miami-friendly hues of teal, coral, and mint. “Women are still under the impression that if they go to work in a geranium-red grosgrain pump, that somehow makes them appear less capable, less reliable,” she says. In addition to timeless designs and wearable heel heights, Parker says the collection’s bright color palette offers women liberating options. “It’s what you really want to do,” she says. “Mint can go with this and grape can go with this—you can wear whatever makes you feel good. That’s when you look your best.” Available exclusively at Nordstrom, Aventura Mall, 19507 Biscayne Blvd., 305-356-6900; nordstrom.com  OD

Inner Beauty In the independent spirit of Wynwood, Frangipani brings just the right eclectic mix of creative gifts and home goods. by brett graff

T

he Wynwood Walls, the warehouses that serve as giant canvases for street art, are successfully luring pedestrians to the burgeoning arts district. But if you keep your eyes locked only on the striking exteriors, you just might miss some of the imaginative goods on the inside of those buildings. Nestled in between the winding warehouse paths and Joey’s restaurant, Frangipani (pronounced franju-pan-ee) blends into the city blocks so well that the store, which offers a chic and artistic array of items from coffee table books to impossibly modern yoga wear, might be missed by a distracted browser. In the oversize front window, the shop’s merchandise is not represented by any of the exotic trinkets found within but rather a single vintage Vespa from 1964 that’s restored in both body and motor. With an original 150cc, it can travel at 70 miles per hour. Compare that, says shop owner Jennifer Frehling, to a typical 50cc Vespa, which rides at only about 40 miles per hour. “People see them and go crazy,” she says, pointing to the $5,600 model currently on display. “I’ve sold four.” That notion of “special” pervades the store and is all part of the proprietor’s vision. Frehling—who, continued on page 168

Some of the unusual items at Frangipani include a Russian Criminal Tattoo book ($33), petrified wood bookends ($225), handmade nesting olive wood bowls ($275 for a set of 7), and handmade gold and silver leather clutches by Molly M Designs ($85–$100).

However, Frehling is certain it’s Wynwood that is the perfect location for her retail vision; after all, Frangipani was profitable from the first month, she says, and sales are up 25 percent this year. “That could credit the neighborhood as much as the store,” she says, humbly. “Wynwood has been written up in The New York Times, a ton of tourists are coming to look at the walls and the graffiti, and I can’t wait for the other retail stores to open.” But as any retail analyst would agree, foot-traffic alone is not a recipe for retail success.

She’s Got the Upper Hand Stacie Orloff, one of the few female execs in the watch business, is changing the face of Miami-based Bell & Ross. by roberta naas

T

he global watch industry has long been dominated by men; only in the past few decades have women begun taking on leadership roles. One such pioneer is Stacie Orloff, who became the president of Bell & Ross in the Americas six years ago. With 20-plus years of experience in the watch industry working with brands such as Corum, Gucci, and Montblanc, Orloff took over the reins at Bell & Ross with army-like determination. In the six years she has been in charge of the Miamiheadquartered brand, Orloff has grown the business more than 300 percent, built an entire technical service center (complete with four watchmakers), and has increased the average retail sale close to $1,500. “When I met with the two male owners of the brand about establishing the US arm here, everything clicked,” says Orloff. “They wanted someone the retailers could trust and have confidence in, someone who could realize the Bell & Ross vision, which is to create watches for professionals who demand optimal reliability, meeting four basic principles—legibility, functionality, precision, and water-resistance. I was that someone. I knew I could execute the plan.” While Orloff often travels back and forth to Switzerland, her pri—stacie orloff mary itinerary is between North and South America, building relationships with retailers and increasing brand presence in these important markets. As company president, she aims to maintain the brand’s dominant position in the $3,000-to-$5,000 category while expanding into more expensive timepieces using new case materials and complications. “I run Bell & Ross as though it is my own brand,” says Orloff, who had a staff of just two employees when she started with the company; today she oversees 17—seven of whom are women. “We are small and family owned, and you have to make every minute count in the run for success.” To monitor those minutes, Orloff alternates between several different Bell & Ross timepieces, her favorite being a 45mm Big Date watch. “If you are wearing a strong and recognizable accessory, it gives you the confidence that says I can easily handle anything thrown my way,” explains Orloff, who also favors the sleek BRS Automatic Silver; the 1940s aviationinspired Officer Black bracelet; and the Grande Date, which was inspired by the pocket watches of the 1920s. “This watch makes the statement that I am strong. It says I am here.” For more watch features and expanded coverage, go to oceandrive.com/watches.  OD

hat happens in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas, and when it comes to Carla Pellegrino, that’s a good thing. In fact, she didn’t stay put in Brazil, Italy, or New York, either, but she did pick up culinary gems along the way. Pellegrino was born in Rio, where she helped at her mother’s catering business, but she also grew up in Italy, giving daily cooking demonstrations before moving to Manhattan and studying at the French Culinary Institute. After a stint running New York’s Baldoria Restaurant, Pellegrino became the executive chef responsible for opening Rao’s Las Vegas, an outpost of the city’s famed family Italian joint. She’s also been a contestant on Top Chef and won her episode of Throwdown with Bobby Flay. And it’s all led to Miami, where she’s the powerhouse chef behind Touché. The restaurant is a cool glass cube perched on the rooftop of the new and opulently renovated E11even club downtown, which, depending on what room you’re in, is either a lounge, a cabaret, or a gentlemen’s club. That, and the fact that it’s walking distance from the Heat’s AmericanAirlines Arena, makes Touché a prime spot for a steak joint, but Pellegrino took the menu in a different direction, instead, opting for fare with heritage in both Italy and Japan. “I’m not a steakhouse chef,” she says. “I’m known for good Italian food. It’s something I’ve been cooking since I was a kid. Why change the game continued on page 180

continued from page 179 plan if I’m winning? I wanted to give this [place] a little feminine feeling.” A yin to the yang, if you will. Pellegrino made her name with classic Italian cuisine, and Touché falls in line. (Her chef de cuisine, Diego Pasqualicchio, is Italian from the Piedmont region.) Here she covers a rustic, thick pappardelle with porcini mushrooms, cream, and white truffle oil; there’s classic lobster fra diavolo over spaghetti with a spicy tomato sauce, white pizza from a wood oven, and meatballs made with pork, veal, and beef. Entrées include a pan-seared Florida red snapper with skin crisp, as it should be, but with a light red sauce that gracefully gets out of the way, its acidity seeping into sautéed spinach, and plump caper berries. It’s not your typical Florida presentation and brings in just the right amount of Italian. If you want to go in the steakhouse direction, there are more opulent choices, such as Colorado lamb lollipops served with Parma prosciutto, caramelized onions, and a house-made mint sauce, or the unapologetic filet Chateaubriand—filet mignon medallion wrapped in pancetta and topped with melted Gorgonzola. Why add a Japanese section of the menu? “It was personal,” says Pellegrino. “I’m a chef, but I want to keep skinny, and every time I go out I end up eating Japanese. I don’t want to go dancing with four bowls of pasta in my belly.” The Japanese section is creatively non-classic—halibut usuzukuri comes with a zingy yet almost creamy citrus sauce on the plate, and the ceviche roll uses Japanese structure but has a South American influence via mango and cilantro, and surprise appearances by both tarragon and an ultrathin slice of lime with the skin on (yes, you eat the skin). “It’s pretty,” she says of the lime skin. “It has a nice bite.” Just the kind of outside-the-box thinking you might expect from a woman bold enough to open a restaurant perched where this one is. 15 NE 11th St., Miami, 305-538-9848; touchemiami.com  OD

Star Grazing Beyond Touché, E11even’s grand open-air roof-deck lounge serves food off a separate menu until 5 am. The menu, designed by Pellegrino and emanating from the same kitchen, has a nice slate of wood-fire pizzas, Kobe beef meatball sliders, and even breakfast burritos. The space gains ambience from a maze of patio-like wood booths, fire pits, a waterfall wall, and the stars above. Still pining after 5 am? You can order food 24/7 in the club downstairs.

After dinner at Touché, head downstairs to E11even for the club’s acrobatics and contortionist shows (Thursday through Saturday, starting at around 11:30 pm). Produced by master rigger Daniel Rowland and other vets of Cirque du Soleil, the shows feature video backdrops, original music scores, and flight-like acrobatics up to the venue’s 25-foot ceiling, which undulates with thousands of LED lights. The performers also put on random side vignettes throughout the club (though not for the faint of heart) ranging from contortion to provocative role-plays. 305-829-2911; 11miami.com

Female Power Lunch The women of Miami select smart choices to wine and dine clients, and catch up with old friends. by galena mosovich

W

hen you think of a power lunch, you think of a steakhouse, unless, of course, you’re one of Miami’s growing legion of power ladies. Lighter, airier spots with diverse cuisine—often healthy and locally grown—are perfect for these female deal­ makers. Below, we ask some of our town’s leading women where they do lunch. Top real estate broker Nancy Batchelor is entertaining a client on the terrace at Canyon Ranch Grill (6801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-514-7474; canyonranch.com/ miamibeach) in North Beach. The beachside restaurant is a popular destination for the EWM Realty International agent not only for its unrivaled view of the water but also for its healthconscious gourmet dining. “They have a passion for the holistic, spiritual lifestyle, and they’re feeding themselves to fuel their bodies and manage the stress of their hectic lives,” says Batchelor of her Fortune 500 clients. At Canyon Ranch, nutritional information such as calories; grams of carbs, protein, fat, and fiber; and sodium milligrams is broken down for each dish on the lunch menu. Salt must be specially requested because it’s not part of the res­ taurant’s usual repertoire. Batchelor’s go-to meal is by no means short on flavor, however; she recommends the kale pea­ nut salad with bell peppers, carrots, scallions, cabbage, cilantro, and peanut vinaigrette, as well as the many hearthfired flatbreads such as the fig and Maytag blue cheese with sweet balsamic glaze, arugula, and caramelized onions.

Elegant Asian A few miles north on Collins Avenue is Makoto (9700 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-864-8600; makotorestaurant.me) in Bal Harbour Shops; here you’ll find

entertainment reporter Lisa Petrillo catching up with friends before a busy day at WFOR-TV/CBS4. “Eating and gabbing can be productive,” she says. “We share stories that can lead to story ideas for everything from fash­ ion trends to human interest pieces to new restaurants worth checking out.” At Makoto, a modern Japanese restaurant that’s sleek and always packed, Petrillo and her friends usually start with the Makoto house salad—a hearty bowl of watercress, chikuwa (tiny Japanese fish cakes made in the shape of a tube) for texture, and a light wasabi dressing. Then, Petrillo opts for what she considers one of the best deals in town: For $18, the bento box includes short rib robata (prepared on the traditional charcoal grill) with truffle miso, ponzu salmon with crispy Brussels sprouts, a spicy tuna roll, and a California roll. The potent green tea, served in a traditional cast-iron tet­ subin, is a delightful way to pick up the pace for an afternoon of creativity.

Aegean Awesomeness Nestled in a residential neighborhood just a few blocks away from the Design District is Mandolin Aegean Bistro (4312 NE Second Ave., Miami, 305-749-9140; mandolinmiami.com). It’s where Susie Wahab, a prominent philanthropist who volunteers at the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, enjoys meeting friends for the restaurant’s authentic Mediterranean cuisine. “The best way to keep up with the people you care for is to listen to what they have to say,” explains Wahab, who typically orders a medley of her favorite dishes, including the kefte, grilled beef and lamb meatballs minced with fresh parsley; the Greek Village salad, an assortment of tomato, cucumber, Feta, green pepper, red onion, and Kalamata olives; and whole fish grilled with olive oil, lemon, and fresh oregano. Most of the

ingredients, like the tomatoes, herbs, and greens, are picked from the restaurant’s backyard garden. “Good food must be complemented by good conversation and Mandolin’s homemade fries because they’re delicious.”

Vegan Victory For Alyse Pask, Choices Vegan Cafe (379 SW 15th Road, Miami, 305-4008895; mychoicescafe.com) in downtown/Brickell is like a breath of fresh air in contrast to the hustle of the city. It’s off the beaten path and unassuming, but once you enter the front door, Pask says, you’re warmly greeted with topnotch service. Choices is always bustling with positive energy, and that’s exactly what the Pask Productions founder, who executes events across the country for clients like Bacardi USA, needs to keep her creative juices flowing. “I think the food options at Choices help inspire us from the inside out,” she says of lunch with her team. Her typical order includes La Pixsa: Daiya cheese, black beans, tomato, walnut meat, red and green bell pepper, pico, carrots, onion, and pesto on a sprouted crust, with lots of chipotle sauce to add depth. No meal is complete, according to Pask, without a shot of ginger (for energy and vitality) and a slice of vegan cheesecake.  OD

For seven years, it has served as a hub for business and cultural leaders such as Susanne Birbragher, associate publisher of ArtNexus and CEO at Liaisons Corporation, an international marketing consultancy catering to chic clients like Chanel. “I love the ambience—contemporary yet laid-back—and Michael Schwartz’s creations are always innovative and fresh because his ingredients come from local providers,” says Birbragher. She starts with the crispy hominy (fried whole kernels of corn) sprinkled with lime juice. It’s a snack you must eat with your hands, which eliminates pomp and circumstance from a business meeting. To boost her energy level, she’ll ask for the wood-roasted local fish of the day.

What Women Want Gone are the days of the apple martini. Miami’s sophisticated female cocktail connoisseurs are pushing the spirit boundaries. by galena mosovich

Miami women are exploring cocktail culture with drinks such as (clockwise from top) the Bonnie & Clyde from The Cypress Room, the East by West Old Fashioned from Hakkasan, and the Oaxacan Venice from The Broken Shaker.

And Reddick is hardly alone—liquor brands are increasing their outreach to women, while others in the spirits industry, such as Jennifer Massolo of the Miami-based tasting series Spirited Sirens, which brings female imbibers together to explore artisanal spirits through interactive seminars, are helping expose more women to bourbon, Scotch, and other brown spirits. “Ladies are always asking me for refreshing bourbon cocktails,” says Sarah Lawrence, head bartender at Hakkasan (4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 877-326-7412; fontainebleau.com) at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. Lawrence recommends the popular East by West Old Fashioned, which blends Yamazaki 12 whisky with Basil Hayden’s bourbon and Licor 43, along with Bittermens Xocolati mole bitters and Fee Brothers black walnut bitters, garnished with continued on page 188

randi Reddick has a keen eye for the cutting-edge—both with the public art installations she’s placed around South Florida and with her taste in cocktails. The curator for Miami-Dade Art in Public Places, Reddick doesn’t shy away from powerful spirits or obscure liqueurs with hard-to-pronounce names. For a nightcap, she selects a potent yet elegant French 75, made with gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and simple syrup, at The Corner (1035 N. Miami Ave., Miami, 305-961-7887; thecornermiami.com).

continued from page 186 a grapefruit twist and bachelor’s button flowers. “I love it when a couple steps up to the bar to order a lychee martini and a Black Label, [and then] the lady takes the Scotch.” “I’ve seen it evolve so much here that even when I worked at the nightclub Set last year, I’d get women asking me to make them an elaborate cocktail,” says Virginia King, bartender at The Broken Shaker (2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach, 305-531-2727), who has found that women are doing their research and asking thoughtful questions about ingredients, including mezcal, the key player in her Oaxacan Venice, which mixes mezcal, Aperol, and sweet vermouth. The same dichotomy can be found at The Cypress Room (3620 NE Second Ave., Miami, 305-520-5197; thecypressroom.com) in the Design District, where pink floral wallpaper appears alongside deer trophies, and feminine vintage glassware is used to serve liquorforward rose-colored cocktails. “You would think that the manly spirits would be served in manly glassware, but they’re not, so women feel empowered to try them,” says bartender Noelle-Victoria Service, whose signature drink is the Bonnie & Clyde, made with Hendrick’s Gin, Solerno blood orange liqueur, and Cocchi Americano aperitif wine. The cocktail is served in charming Nick and Nora stemware, which looks like a more bowl-shaped martini glass. While it’s fairly common in Miami to find talented women like Lawrence, King, and Service behind the bar, you don’t see many running beverage programs. An exception to the rule is Ashley Danella of The Pubbelly Restaurant Group, who oversees the bars at the Hilton Cabana Miami Beach (6261 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-864-6261; hilton.com). “Women are open to what’s out there, and they’re drinking more gin over vodka,” says Danella, who is partial to the Cabana Colada, made with Diplomatico Reserva rum, Panther cold-brew coffee, fresh pineapple juice, and orgeat, and garnished with a mint sprig. “They’re trusting the bartender more and ordering something they haven’t tried before.”  OD

n an ideal world, the consumption of cupcakes Francesca and muffins would whittle waistlines and thwart Caltagirone sugar crashes. CraveClean has taken a step toward making that possible. Founded by Miami native and fitness fanatic Francesca Caltagirone, CraveClean offers a selection of protein-based muffins, cupcakes, cookies, and bars that are made with less than a dozen food-label-legible ingredients, such as protein powder, gluten-free oat flour, fresh-made almond milk, coconut oil, unsweetened apple sauce, and small amounts of Stevia. Even her preservative of choice is natural and found in organic foods. “The idea is that every ingredient I put in would be beneficial to your body in some way,” she says. Before she launched CraveClean, Caltagirone struggled with fitting healthy snacks into her active lifestyle. “I was working out six days a week and turning to protein bars that had a bunch of sugar and ingredients I didn’t understand in them,” she explains. Instead, she now turns to her moist, yummy cakes with attractive nutritional stats. Favorites include the PB&P, a peanut butter and oats cupcake that’s packed with protein and garnished with peanut butter frosting, with 135 calories and 14 grams of protein, and the Strawberry Fields, a vanilla cake filled with strawberries and topped with Greek yogurt (145 calories and 12 grams of protein). The dessert-ready chocolate-vanilla B&W muffin, meanwhile, comes in at an impressive 119 calories and only nine grams of carbs. Caltagirone, who is opening a bakery at Eighth Street and Ponce De Leon Boulevard in early May, is willing to modify recipes to accommodate allergies and sensitivities to satisfy “mothers who buy it for their kids, fitness mothers, grandparents with diabetes, and fitness dads who get the jumbo size.” Says Caltagirone of CraveClean, “I love that it can change lives.” 3822 SW Eighth St., Miami, 305-431-4005; simplycleaneats.com

Ladies of the Line Pals Nina Compton of Scarpetta and Jen Chaefsky of Macchialina discuss how women are shaping Miami’s food scene. moderated by ana heretoiu

n an industry still dominated by men, more and more female restaurateurs and chefs are taking the reins, and in Miami, they’re beginning to change the culinary landscape. Here, Jen Chaefsky, general manager and owner of Macchialina, who studied agricultural sciences in school, and Top Chef alum/chef de cuisine at Scarpetta Nina Compton, who trained under renowned chef Daniel Boulud, discuss how they’re redefining Miami’s food scene.

Jen Chaefsky and Nina Compton check out the selection of produce at The Fresh Market in Coconut Grove.

family, you don’t go to weddings, you’re always on call. I think that’s hard for a lot of women. People’s choices are changing, though. Maybe husbands stay home with the kids, maybe you’re not going to have kids; there are ways. I don’t know how you would do it and have a family. This is our family. NC: You have to sacrifice a lot. My husband’s in the business, so we get along very well, but if he worked 9-to-5, it would never work. Advice for young women in the culinary arts? NC: I do tell my female cooks, “Don’t show any sign of weakness because the second you do that,

they’re going to eat you alive.” You can’t be like, “I’m a woman, so can you pick this up?” You have to show that you can pick up 50 pounds and more. JC: There’s pressure to prove yourself even more. I’ll be the first one in or the last one to leave, and in between, I’ll do everything. I’m not a princess; I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty, and [the men in the kitchen] respond to that.

How do you think dining in Miami has changed since you’ve arrived? Nina Compton: When I first moved here 12 years ago, it seemed like there were fine dining restaurants only in hotels. Then [in 2008], Michelle Bernstein opened her own restaurant [Michy’s] and Michael Schwartz opened up [Restaurant Michael Schwartz]. Now we have more female chefs coming up—it is a very exciting time for Miami. Jen Chaefsky: When we got here six years ago, we were like, “Where do you eat?” It’s an easy niche to fill; I think that’s why people respond so well to what we’re doing here. Kitchens can be verbally combative places to work. Does that matter as a woman? JC: Not to this woman. We can hold our own with the boys. I think that also helps us succeed. It makes it a lot easier to do our jobs when we’re seen as one of them. NC: You really have to have a thick skin. People can say some offensive things, but you can’t take it personally. You have to roll with the punches. If you’re one of the guys, they know “she’s with us.” Why do you think there aren’t more women restaurateurs and chefs? JC: Because you have to give up a lot of stuff. It’s hard to have these hours—you don’t see your

INSIGHT When: A hot afternoon. Where: Yardbird Southern Table & Bar, 1600 Lenox Ave., Miami Beach, 305-538-5220; runchickenrun.com Why: Fried chicken is heaven.

clockwise from far left: Lee Brian

Schrager raves about the crispy fried chicken at Yardbird; the signature bird, accompanied by chilled spiced watermelon and a green tomato chowchow-topped waffle; sweet iced tea is presented in Southern-style Mason jars.

Clucking the Trend L

ee Brian Schrager, best known as the founder of the Food Network New York City and South Beach Wine & Food Festivals, would argue that any time is a good time for fried chicken. But there are few better places in Miami than Yardbird, the ardently Southern eatery off Lincoln Road. We sat down for a proper meal with Schrager to chat about his new book, Fried & True (available May 20), which chronicles more than 50 of America’s best fried chicken recipes—both back-road and big-city iterations—and explores the phenomenon of what Schrager calls America’s “number-one guilty pleasure.” Why write a book about fried chicken? I love it. It’s something that everyone relates to. When I told people about the book, some said, “We don’t eat fried chicken,” but no one said, “We don’t like it.” And there are so many great recipes.

I understand that as a kid, your love for fried chicken got you into some trouble. Howard Johnson’s used to have an all-you-can-eat fried chicken night. I would go with a group of five guys—we were like 13 years old—and could really pack away the food. I think they probably lost money on us, so it’s true, we were asked not to return to the Howard Johnson’s in Massapequa, New York. What’s your take on the fried chicken here at Yardbird? It’s not the first time I’ve seen fried chicken with a waffle or with watermelon, but all together, it’s great. It’s really crispy on the outside, and when you bite into it, it’s moist. I love the contrast. The green tomato chowchow on the waffles is fun, too. What dishes here at Yardbird do you like to eat along with the chicken? continued on page 194

continued from page 192 It’s nice to have a vegetarian option, so the cauliflower steak is fantastic. It’s beautiful, first of all, and secondly, the cranberries on top are interesting, and I love the bay leaf crumble on the side. The St. Louis ribs, too, have a very tangy standout taste. The meat is not overly fatty, just fatty enough. Anything on the lighter side? The farmer’s salad changes by the day. What I love about it is you could eat here tomorrow night and rather than cherry tomatoes, maybe they’re teardrop tomatoes. I’m impressed with how committed they [are to using] local ingredients. The pickled vegetables, too, with mushrooms, garlic, and carrots, come with bread and whipped butter. The butter and the pickled tartness are a nice contrast. What other local spots are you keen on? I love Publix—the best fried chicken. I love Joe’s Stone Crab, too. Those are the two places out of 200 I asked that wouldn’t give me their recipes for the book. Michy’s is one of my favorites. —lee brian schrager Michelle Bernstein does an allyou-can-eat fried chicken on Wednesdays over the summer that I love—and she hasn’t kicked me out! Everyone knows you as the mind behind the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. But you went to the Culinary Institute of America? I graduated in ’79. I didn’t want to be a chef, but I wanted the culinary experience. I went, also, because I was a very average student, and at that point, you didn’t have to take the SATs to get in. I was deathly afraid of not doing well on my SATs. Tell us about the road trip you took for the book. We went on a three-week trip to do the lifestyle shots all over the South, hitting 60 or 70 restaurants. We found that be it Thomas Keller at Ad Hoc or a shack on the side of the street in Georgia, you’ll find chicken that’s just as good as Keller’s, just not in a white-tablecloth, Michelin-starred setting. What tricks of the trade did you discover on your road trip? I heard two things throughout the South: “Always use cold chicken.” I’d never heard that before, but I heard it many times through [the research]. The end result is very crispy. And the clapping method—you hit the chicken after you dredge it in flour, to knock the excess off. They need to teach that at CIA. They probably should. We didn’t make fried chicken once when I was there, though it’s probably on the menu now. What recipes might surprise some readers? There’s an Indian chef, Asha Gomez, who lives in Atlanta. Her chicken recipe

was unbelievable. It’s marinated in yogurt and fresh herbs. It fries up green from the herbs, and she serves it on a sweet-potato waffle. It was the most delicious fried chicken I’ve ever had. You said writing this book was humbling. How so? I’m so used to dealing with food personalities and pop-culture chefs that I think it was traveling on the back roads, and stopping and talking to people who are so passionate about food—people who cook to support their families. One of the things that came up the most was people talking about food and using the word “love.” If you hear that from a lot of chefs, you think, Oh, what BS is that? But from these people on the back roads of the South, you really believe it. These people are so hard working and so committed to pleasing people. Meeting them was really humbling. What’s next for you? I’m working on two more books, one called Morning Glory, on breakfast foods. At the same time, I’m working on Hole in One, which is a book on doughnuts.  OD

ecoming a worldwide pop phenomenon didn’t happen overnight for Shakira. Raised in the port city of Barranquilla, Colombia, she wrote her first song at age 8, released her debut album by age 13, then forged forward with an ironclad will born from the knowledge that this was her calling. “I had my difficulties in the beginning, and it wasn’t until my third record really that I started to get a taste of success,” says Shakira, the most-liked musician on Facebook (to the tune of 89.8 million followers). “But I did always know that this was what I was meant to be doing. And when you’re sure of that, you just don’t take no for an answer.” Some 60 million albums sold later, the 37-year-old bilingual pop juggernaut released her 10th album, simply titled Shakira, in March, all the while continuing to be a standout member of the four-panel judge/mentoring team on The Voice. She and her partner, international soccer star Gerard Piqué, also welcomed their first child, Milan, into the world last January—and that, she says, changed everything. OCEAN DRIVE: Where are you today? What are your days like? SHAKIRA: I’m home, in Barcelona, in a comfy T-shirt and workout pants. When I’m home with days off, I always start my day with Milan, playing outside, and just enjoying that quiet time together. Then I’ll have a late breakfast, take my vitamins, and get ready for the day while he’s napping. You also have a home in Miami.

last album, I’ve entered one of the happiest phases of my life.”

above, from left:

Shakira mentors contestants on The Voice; performing live on NBC’s Today earlier this year; opposite page: Shakira at the inauguration of the sixth school of her Fundación Pies Descalzos in Cartagena, Colombia. The singer and humanitarian started the organization to bring quality education to underprivileged children in her native country.

When I’m in Miami, I spend a lot of time with family—my parents and some extended family who all live there—as well as a couple of close friends from childhood. I tend to stay pretty low-key, although I love getting out on the water, either jet skiing or on a boat when possible. This is our Women of Influence Issue. What does it mean to be powerful today—and how do you use your stature to get things done? Power is a double-edged sword. It can be a very useful tool, but it can also become something that consumes you—that perpetual pursuit of more power. To me, being powerful means you are in control of yourself above all and know how to use your strengths to achieve things that are important to you—in my case, a lot of the time that ends up being philanthropic endeavors. I have two foundations that both work towards achieving universal access to quality education for young children, Pies Descalzos (Barefoot Foundation) and ALAS (America Latina en Accion Solidaria). I grew up in a third-world country where it was impossible to live unaware of the poverty and inequality around me. It wasn’t really a matter of charity in my mind so much as a sense of civic duty. I see power as a means to an end rather than an end in itself, a way to use the voice I’ve been afforded by my professional success to give a voice to others who wouldn’t normally have one—kids in the poorest areas of Latin America and around the globe who would easily be trapped in the cycle of poverty without outside factors helping them. It’s important to remind oneself that power is as easy to lose as it is hard to gain, so we need to be magnanimous with it where we can. Do men and women exhibit or embody power differently?

Undoubtedly—power is something that has only entered the female consciousness in relatively recent history, and I think we’re still figuring out how best to utilize it. For men, it’s something that has always been part of the psyche. That said, we’ve come a long way for such a short time. Who wears the pants in your house? In my house, I would say the balance of power is fairly equal. Relationships have to have a give and take if they’re going to work in the long term. Your relationship has been the focus of much publicity lately, particularly after you said your partner doesn’t like you in videos with hot guys. It’s funny, when I made those comments, it was really in a lighthearted, humorous way. I was surprised to see that it was taken so seriously in the press. Gerard doesn’t tell me what to do—we discuss everything as a couple, as I imagine most partners do. We have a beautiful relationship and one of mutual trust. What was it like working with Rihanna and filming the very provocative video for “Can’t Remember to Forget You”? It was a blast, honestly. I’m sure on the outside it looks like two divas, but when we got together, we realized we had a lot in common—both Caribbean girls from small towns who are very down to earth when it comes down to it, and just enjoy having a good time. What does the new record say about where you are in life, personally and professionally? Since my last album, I’ve entered one of the happiest phases of my life. It

“It’s

was definitely a time of change, of rebirth, of self-discovery, and of course becoming a mother, which turned my world on its head in the best of ways. This album is a culmination of all of those changes. You are a role model for millions of young fans. How do you handle that responsibility? While I appreciate the idea of being seen as a role model, I think role models come in many forms, and the ones that make the most impact are the ones that we have around us on a daily basis, like teachers or older siblings. For me, my parents always held me to very high standards and made a real effort to not let me be corrupted by success at an early age. It’s hard enough as an adolescent to figure out who you are, let alone with an entire industry wanting to tell you who to be. My parents helped me keep my feet on the ground and never compromise on the things that made me who I was. What powerful woman has made the greatest impact on your career? Gloria Estefan was a big role model and mentor for me when I was making my first English album. She really was a trailblazer as a bilingual artist and helped me to see that it was possible and that all I needed was perseverance. What has been the most rewarding part about being a mentor to other aspiring singers on The Voice? I love feeling that I’m really contributing to this person’s growth and helping them find their own path and embrace their individuality—record labels don’t always place enough importance on that. I know that had I conformed to what other pop artists were doing at the time, not only would people not remember my name by now, but I would have been betraying myself as an artist. How did it feel to go country for your duet with your Voice costar Blake Shelton?

That duet is one of my favorite tracks on the album. It was a long process—I wrote it with people from Nashville originally but then went through eight versions before I finally decided that it needed to stay as a country song and used all Nashville musicians on it. I was nervous when I sent it to Blake, but he loved it and I was so thrilled! How often do you go back to Colombia, and what do your roots mean to you? I go back a couple of times a year—not as often as I’d like with my schedule, but I still remain very identified with the culture. I have a big family that I’m very close with. This year, when I inaugurated my school, we also got Milan his Colombian passport. Even though he spends most of his time in Europe, I want him to identify with and know that part of his background and culture because it’s a beautifully rich and colorful one. You’ve gone from pop star to a mega-brand multihyphenate: singermom-philanthropist-entertainer-TV personality. What drives you, and how do you find balance? My drive has always come from within. But surprisingly, since I’ve become a mother, I’ve actually been able to find more balance. All mothers are multitaskers, but in the past I’ve found myself working nonstop and sometimes didn’t know when or how to just take a break. Becoming a mother has forced me to slow down and reorganize my life to find a way to still be devoted to all the things I’m passionate about—music, philanthropy, and motherhood. How else has being a mom to Milan changed you? Everything is different. Maybe the biggest change is that I think about the future more, what the world will be like for him when he grows up. But when it comes to living, it’s all about the present. I’m finally able to really savor all of those little moments that in the early days of my career I was too busy thinking about the next thing to just stop, take it all in, and enjoy.  OD

O

ne of the most prolific artists working today, Peter Max is widely known for his “cosmic style,” with creations that have been seen everywhere from the hull of Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Breakaway and a Continental Airlines Boeing 777 fuselage to the massive stages of the 1999 Woodstock music festival. His mixed-media works can be found in the collections of six past US presidents, while his art—recognizable for its energetic brushstrokes of primary colors and psychedelic panoramas of stars, planets, profiles, and icons from Lady Liberty to the Beatles—has been used to represent five Super Bowls, the World Cup, the World Series, the US Open, the Grammys, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “I’m just very happy to be in the middle of all this,” says Max of his many accomplishments. “I’m happy to do all the painting and have all the museum shows.” Born in Berlin and raised in Shanghai, Max and his family moved around the globe, from Tibet to Israel to Paris, with each destination influencing his art. Eventually, Max settled in New York, where, at age 76, he continues to produce a dizzying array of works, including this Ocean Drive cover, one of a collection of 10 covers created exclusively for Niche Media publications that also includes LA Confidential, Gotham, Hamptons, Aspen Peak, and Michigan Avenue. The original painting will be auctioned on Charitybuzz starting this month to benefit The Humane Society of the US. “I paint and draw every day, and I loved creating this cover art for Ocean Drive,” says Max. “I went through files of my drawings to choose the right inspiration for this cover. I love nature and creating peter max landscapes that are natural and yet fantasy, with colorful skies, clouds, and cosmic characters. I featured South Beach’s iconic lifeguard stands, palm trees, Art Deco hotels, beach and sea, and the nature all around, and gave them all my colors in this cosmic landscape.” In his studio—two full-floor lofts near New York’s Lincoln Center—Max has galleries’ worth of his work: a towering portrait of the Statue of Liberty he painted on the White House lawn for President Ronald Reagan in 1981; a multicolored Baldwin piano signed by his pal Ringo Starr; rows of Lucite sculptures taken from his “Angel” series; a painted guitar originally made for Jon Bon Jovi; and portraits of everyone from Marilyn Monroe to John F. Kennedy, all done in Max’s distinctive style. “When you’re a singer and you have a really great voice, it’s not like you create a voice—it’s just there. My art is just

“I love nature and creating landscapes that are natural and yet fantasy.” —

Max’s work has appeared on thousands of magazine covers. “I’m really lucky because we live in an age of media,” he says.

there,” says Max. “I just put the brush on paper and I don’t even know what I’m doing, but I know it’s going to come out great. Twenty-four seven, creativity, creativity, creativity—it’s all I do. I draw on airplanes, I draw in limousines, I draw when I wake up in the morning, and in taxicabs.” Beyond the studio, Max is a longtime vegetarian and practices yoga and meditation daily—a part of his routine for more than 40 years. He also gives freely of his time, money, and art to benefit animal charities such as The Humane Society of the US and the equine rescue organization Wild for Life Foundation, and works for conservationism. “Nature itself is the most beautiful and creative work of art, and we should do all that we can to protect it for future generations,” says Max. “As an artist, I visualize our cities with gleaming skyscrapers, beautiful trees and flowers, and clean colorblended skies. But it’s up to us as individuals to live a more sustainable lifestyle and help keep our cities and countries green.” By his side in all of it is his wife of 17 years, Mary Max, whom the artist calls “one of [his] greatest inspirations.” “When I met her, it fueled me, and she still fuels me today, quite a few years later,” he says of his wife, whom he spotted one day while out for coffee and declared he would marry at first sight. “We donate money left and right, we have events up [in the studio] all the time, and we have six rescue animals of our own at the house.” At the present, Max also has seven feature film and animation projects in the works, including one yet to be announced for the estate of Frank Sinatra. Here, in celebration of Max’s 50 years of commercial success and his collection of city renderings exclusively for Niche Media, the artist opens up to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski about his unparalleled career, his spirituality, philanthropy, and the famous friends who have helped influence his work.

New York, 1967.

Behind the Brushstrokes JOE AND MIKA: Many artists will agree that it’s a struggle to gain recognition, but to keep it and have it last 50 years is staggering. What do you think is the key to your success? PETER MAX: It’s just being present, letting creativity come through. I’m also really lucky because we live in an age of media. It used to be, when I was on the cover of Life magazine 45 years ago, there were only three magazines—Time, Life, and Fortune. My art got to be on two of those covers. Today there are thousands of magazines out there, and my work has been on 2,000 to 3,000 covers. Early in your career, you studied a lot of the masters, from Rembrandt to Sargent. So how did you develop your cosmic style? I always used to draw never even thinking that drawing is something you could do [as a career] once you became an adult. In China, I studied with the 6-year-old daughter of a street artist. Then in Israel, my mother hooked me up with a famous art professor from Austria. After we left Israel and moved to Paris, my mother signed me up for the classes for kids at the Louvre. And when we came to America, I found a private teacher, Frank Reilly [at the Art Students League of New York]; after high school, I used to go into the city and I studied with him. Frank Reilly went to that school 30 years earlier, and the kid who used to sit beside him was Norman Rockwell. So Norman Rockwell and Frank Reilly studied together and Rockwell became Rockwell; Reilly became Peter Max’s teacher. Then I hooked up with some people with certain art

I Get By with a Little Help from My Friends People will recognize your paintings of the Statue of Liberty or the “Love” series, but what do you think your most defining piece is? There are so many defining pieces. Painting the Statue of Liberty was a big thing because it’s an emblem; it’s the symbol for the United States of America, so it got so much [attention]. Then I’ve painted so many unbelievable people, like the Dalai Lama, John F. Kennedy—close to 800 portraits.

You’ve also painted portraits of all of the Beatles, who also just celebrated 50 years in America. Tell us more about your relationship with the band. I met John [Lennon] way, way back, and I was best friends with Yoko Ono. One day I read in the paper that my little friend Yoko was going out with John. I knew John, I knew Yoko; I could have introduced them in a second. I used to go pick both of them up at the Dakota where she lives, and we used to go to Central Park. We used to walk around and bullshit and talk and sing songs. Here in your studio, you have a colorful piano that’s signed “To Peter, Love Ringo….” I did a Baldwin piano for Ringo Starr, and he loved it. Then Baldwin called me up and said, “We love it so much, we’re going to send you a piano.” Two days later, they deliver it, the guys assemble it, and I roll out my paints and start painting the piano beautiful colors. Just as I’m finishing, my girl comes from the front desk and says, “Your buddy Ringo is here.” Ringo had been uptown and wanted to say thanks; instead he said, “I like yours better!” and I said, “No, Ringo, yours is the first; it’s the nicest.” He asked if I had paints and I said, “Do I have paints?” We roll out a cart of paints, and he writes, “To Peter, love Ringo,” followed by a star. There’s a photo right on top of you and Ringo. Was it another famous Beatle, Paul McCartney, who turned you on to vegetarianism? Paul and I became vegetarian at the same time. I’ve been a vegetarian now

schools who were very design oriented. For someone who studied realism, your painting style is not necessarily realist.… No, I’m kind of impressionistic. Realism gave me the skill to paint, but my eye was more into design-ery art. The Art Students League has produced some famous alumni, including Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly. Ever have any celebrity encounters? I once met Marilyn Monroe. The steps to the street were very narrow, and some of the students used to sit on the steps. I sat there one day with a friend of mine and I see this girl walking by, and I did a double take. I said to my friend, “It’s Marilyn Monroe,” and as she’s walking by, she turns to me and says, “I like your pants”—I had a lot of paint on my pants—and then she kept on walking. She was so stunning; all her features were just perfect.

We hang out; I’ve been very lucky. Is it true that you also have a DJ who works here in your studio? Yes—Joe. I have two or three radio stations I like, and he has certain CDs he’s made for me. He plays for me all good contemporary music—jazz, bebop, fusion jazz, certain rock ’n’ roll. When I start painting, the music is on and I’m just in the groove. Music inspires my whole will to paint, the will to be creative—it fuels the creativity. You worked with George Harrison on the Integral Yoga Institute, a yoga center and ashram in New York’s Greenwich Village based on the teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda, whom you brought to America in 1966. Was it George who introduced you to the Swami? No, George was involved with the Maharaji out of England. George and I talked about my Satchidananda and his Maharaji, and we introduced each other to the other guys. The institute teaches how to go into meditation, get your mind focused, do stretching, become a vegan—a lot of health, behavioral, and mental benefits that have changed my whole life. How did you first meet Swami Satchidananda? Conrad Rooks, who was the heir of Avon cosmetics—he was a billionaire kid—called me one day when I was still in my early 20s, and he wanted me to come to Paris to help him with the colors on a film he was going to make.

A day or two later, I pack a little bag, my driver drops me off at Kennedy Airport, and I go to Paris. Conrad picks me up from the airport and we’re hanging out in the restaurant at the hotel that he’s staying in, and then in comes the Swami—long beard, beautiful long black hair, gorgeous eyes— and Conrad introduces me to him. After spending a day with the Swami, I knew I had to bring him to New York. All my hippie buddies were taking LSD, and I was thinking, This is the man we need to be with, not this other stuff. I brought him to America and I opened yoga centers for him.

THE BEST IS YET TO COME Over your career, you’ve accomplished so much. Is there something—a goal—you have yet to achieve? I’ve been listening to music very intensely my whole life, but especially in the last 36 months because I’ve been collecting music for seven feature films and animation. Characters and stories—I have so many; the only thing I hadn’t collected was music, so I called my friends—Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Bon Jovi—everyone I knew. Out of 200,000 pieces of music, I selected about 3,000 or 4,000 that I adore. Have you ever thought about retiring? I’ve been retired since I was 20. [Laughs] Retiring is getting to do completely what you love, right? It’s not like sitting in a chair somewhere. This is a nice life—it’s creative, colors, music, and people. I love it. OD

Beauties With sophistication, grace, and unbridled love for our city, these six women embody modern beauty in Miami, captured at the iconic Raleigh Hotel. By Julia ford-carther | Photography by david benoliel

A

renas’s interest in healthy cuisine developed at a young age when she taught herself how to cook after losing her mother at 16. Now a registered dietician who works part time at Miami Children’s Hospital and also has a private practice in downtown Miami, the ever-smiling Arenas is revolutionizing staff members’ approaches to healthy living and sustainable weight loss. In her free time—of which she wishes she had more—this grounded and wise-beyond-her-years former model/actress takes on private personal-training clients and shares healthy cooking tips and recipes on her blog, feedmehealth.com. Age: 25. Neighborhood: Edgewater. Miami inspiration: The weather and the culture. Beauty brand go-to: M.A.C. mascara. Fitness regimen: I mix it up—spinning, Pure Barre, Bikram yoga, running on the beach, and good old weights. Style black book: My friend Kelly Nugent owns French 75 Vintage boutique and also does my hair. Favorite feature: My eyes. What makes a woman beautiful:

Brains and seeing the cup half full—it changes everything. Most proud of: Putting myself through college and getting my dietician license. Signature style: I was a full-out rocker girl growing up in California, and then Miami spiced it up; it brought out the Latin roots in me. Cause closest to my heart: Farmers markets and local suppliers. Best piece of advice I’ve received: Keep going. My mom always told me, “Everything changes until you’re dead.” Personal manifesto: There is no right, there is no wrong, there are just moments. Person I’d most want to have dinner with: My mom. I miss her. I wish I could catch up with her. When no one is looking: I play music. It’s my escape. Happiness is: A state of being. You choose to be happy. Greatest love of my life: Music. I genuinely love feeling music. What makes me smile: I’m smiling 80 percent [of the time], so a lot of things. Good company. What I see when I look in the mirror: Light. I see that in everyone, though. I never leave home without: A water bottle— have to stay hydrated!

Today, she’s the newly appointed director of corporate partnerships and Friends of NWS; as such, she cultivates support among Miami’s younger generations.

s the morning anchor at WSVN, Rivera’s familiar face is widely recognized across Miami—a place she and her family have called home for decades. The self-professed Miami girl grew up in Miami Beach (coincidentally and unbeknownst to Rivera, alongside her future husband), and after experiencing colder climes in the Northeast, she returned home to quickly ascend the ranks at her local station. The accomplished journalist also anchors her family, which includes her husband and 1-year-old son, and works with various organizations like the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.

The viewers know only what they see. Not only do I have to be professional, but they also have to trust me. How Miami influences my look: In Miami, anything goes. You can have so much fun with what you wear. That doesn’t mean I’m going to wear a crop top at 31 years of age; I don’t think I can pull that off anymore. Go-to beauty brand: I swear by Yves Saint Laurent mascara. What makes a woman beautiful: How she feels about herself, her sense of security, her sense of self. Quality I like most in a woman: Compassion. Best piece of advice I’ve received: Do what makes you happy and find something you’re passionate about. Why it’s important to be engaged with my community: It’s part of what I do professionally. In my personal life, I was always raised to give back. I find it important to help those who helped you along the way. Miami inspiration: Miami is a melting pot, and there are so many different opportunities here. You have the world at your fingertips.

ith a wealth of top furniture and apparel retailers and showrooms in the Design District, an abundance of newly opened art galleries in Wynwood, and a rich array of world-class residential buildings popping up in the city’s skyline, design aficionados in Miami are already spoiled for choice. Now they have another reason to smile—Maison & Objet, the preeminent decorative arts exhibition established almost two decades ago in France and held biannually in Paris, will converge for the first time on Miami Beach next May, bringing a whole new crop of designers and suppliers to the city. With around 280 exhibitors and more than 15,000 interior designers, architects, retailers, property developers, and hotel and restaurant owners expected to attend, its arrival also promises to solidify Miami’s place at the forefront of international design. “We wanted to find a location that could attract visitors from North and South America as well as a city which is really involved with and linked to architecture, design, and arts,” says Philippe Brocart, the managing director of SAFI, which organizes the exposition. “Miami Beach was clearly ranked number one on these objectives.” In recent years, Miami’s profile has grown from a winter getaway to a full-blown international crossroads and cultural mecca, with fashion, food, design, art, and music attracting a new brand of international habitués—many of whom are now establishing roots here. Maison & Objet’s arrival not only ups the ante but also brings increased attention to the current surge in work by world-renowned architects and designers taking place in the city.

DESIGNING THE SKYLINE: Bernardo Fort-Brescia

photography by tk; illustration by tk photography by nick garcia

Visionary architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia has likely had a hand in shaping more of the Miami skyline than any other architect. Born in Lima, Peru, and educated at Princeton and Harvard, he and his wife, Laurinda Spear, founded Arquitectonica in 1977. Five years later, after designing the Atlantis on Brickell (featured in the opening credits of Miami Vice), the couple began making waves with their progressive projects around the globe. Locally, Arquitectonica has designed several Miami landmarks, including the AmericanAirlines Arena and the Miami Children’s Museum; currently, Fort-Brescia and his team are working on eight new residential projects in Miami, including Icon Bay, Chateau Ocean, SLS Brickell, and Paraiso Bay, a multifaceted project that will play a pivotal role in revitalizing Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood. “It will animate the waterfront with a park and restaurants in a way that can only be accomplished by a project of a certain size,” says Fort-Brescia. arquitectonica.com

MADE IN MIAMI: Jay Wall

photography by nick photography by nick garcia photography bygarcia tk; illustration by tk

Inspired by his childhood travels, sailing around the globe on a yacht with his family, Jay Wall applies a multidisciplinary take on design to projects ranging from renovations of historic Art Deco buildings in South Beach to high-end homes in Palm Beach to fine-art galleries and commercial spaces in Manhattan. Since launching his firm, Thirlwall Building Design, in Miami and New York nine years ago, his projects have expanded to Paris, Italy, Mexico, and Morocco. Trained at the École des BeauxArts in France, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and Rhode Island School of Design, Wall says his work in Miami is influenced by “Latin flair and Mediterranean Revival, traditional Renaissance, and MiMo architecture, as well as midcentury furniture styles and the pre-Mizner influences from the Caribbean, though at heart it’s much more modern—there’s a collision of both ends of the spectrum in eloquent dialogue.” thirlwalldesign.com

of South Beach along with the transformation of Lincoln Road—reignited Miami’s passion for design. And the current building boom is elevating it to a whole new level. “Developers feel the challenge of doing something special, and the pressure to think differently is reaching a peak,” says architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia, principal of Arquitectonica, which is designing a bevy of new condominiums in Miami and the Beach. “The amount of buildings [in Miami] that are design-conscious reflects a given part of the persona of the city.” Robins, who is president and CEO of the real estate development firm Dacra, has since turned his attention across the bay. “I began to think about a place where South Beach could expand and realized the most natural next frontier was the Design District,” he says. “After discovering its history as a place for the furniture and design business in the ’70s and ’80s, the first thing we did was work to bring in retailers in that category. After succeeding at that, I began to think of other cultural dimensions that the neighborhood could have.” The Design District boom went into high gear as a result of the collaboration with Art Basel. “The Design District then became popular for things beyond furni—carlos rosso esign has always been integral ture and design, and art galleries and to the texture of Miami—from restaurants started to open, and we the whimsical Old Worldinspired Mediterranean Revival style popular in the early 20th century to began to have an interesting creative spirit,” says Robins. “I realized that if we the Art Deco and Moderne boutique hotels built in South Beach in the could combine art and design and food and fashion, we would have the ulti1920s, ’30s, and ’40s, and the midcentury MiMo structures influenced by the mate combination of synergistic uses.” Today, the area is home to flagship stores of the world’s top luxury fashInternational Style and exemplified most saliently, perhaps, by Morris Lapidus’s Fontainebleau Hotel. However, the spotlight on its rich repertoire ion brands, including Prada, Hermès, Celine, and Louis Vuitton, as well as of design gems had dimmed during the ’70s and ’80s, when Miami’s luster icons of furniture design like Christian Liaigre, Poltrona Frau, and Molteni lapsed and the city became a haven for drug smugglers and tequila-swilling & C.

But ment professionals, Robins and his team have developed a master plan the renaissance sparked in the late ’80s—when the visionary developer Craig that will expand the Design District even further. “In addition to the buildRobins revitalized much of the Art Deco District, precipitating the renewal ings that are there now, we have 15 more under construction, and by “We brought in great designers and great architects to work on our projects because we recognized a long time ago that clients were becoming more and more sophisticated and design was one of the distinguishing factors that people were looking for in real estate,” says Carlos Rosso, president of the condominium development division of The Related Group, the über developer responsible for some of the most interesting condo projects now underway in Miami, including the SLS Hotel & Residences in Brickell with interiors by French designer Philippe Starck, and Paraiso Bay, the multitower condominium complex and park by the Miami-based firm Arquitectonica now under construction in Edgewater. “The reality is that Miami is a unique city in that probably 15 of the world’s top architects are all doing projects here at the same time.” Also contributing to the world-class mix of notable buildings reinvigorating Miami’s skyline are the 1111 Lincoln Road parking garage and the new Pérez Art Museum Miami by Swiss masters Herzog & de Meuron, the New World Center in Miami Beach by Frank Gehry, and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts by Cesar Pelli.

“We have a chance of being a great historical city 100 years from now that people will visit because of all of the amazing architecture and design that’s happening now.” —craig robins

December there will be 60 more stores in the neighborhood. We’ll also begin work on a next phase, where we’ll build another 15 to 20 buildings, adding residential and hotels and another 60 or so retail stores,” he says. “It’s really been a transformative experience.” Also helping transform the local landscape are advancements in construction and building technology such as the boundary-blurring, site-sensitive fritted glass used by local architect Rene Gonzalez at the exclusive Glass condominium designed in South Beach, or the vast uninterrupted interior spaces made possible by the innovative structure designed by architect Zaha Hadid for One Thousand Museum on Biscayne Boulevard. “The building’s external structure is its key feature,” says Hadid. “Its form is both architectural expression and primary structure. Connecting at critical points for stability, it conveys the integrity and fluidity of the design and allows for greater uninterrupted floor areas within each apartment,” she explains. “With balconies recessed behind the external structure, the glazing on the building will appear as faceted crystals in the ever-changing Miami light, contrasting with the solidity of the structure and animating the design. The expressed external structure allows for much greater degrees of fluidity throughout the design, enabling the interior and exterior spaces to flow into each other.” Since Paulo Bacchi These new developments are not just launched the first US outpost of Artefacto in enhancing Miami’s aesthetics—they’re also Coral Gables in 2002, driving up real estate values. “The class of demand for his vast collection of modern people who come here to collect art is the furniture and accents same as the ones who will buy a home in a has never waned.

Each time we add to that overall equation, our city becomes more and more special.”  OD

THE SPACE OF OBJECTS: Carola Hinojosa Known for timeless interiors, designer Carola Hinojosa has shaped elegant and enduring spaces in many high-profile single-family homes and condominiums in Miami, as well as country clubs, hotels, and foreign embassies in Latin America. The Bolivia-born designer was raised in Argentina and attended Radcliffe Institute’s renowned landscape design program in Boston before opening one of the most elite design firms in Bolivia; she later settled in Miami in 1999. All of her projects share a sophisticated modern classicism. “My design aesthetic revolves more around thinking about a lifestyle than a specific style of decoration,” says Hinojosa, who founded her eponymous design firm in 2001. “Serenity and comfort, through the use of symmetry and proportion, are my ultimate goals.” hinojosadesign

As the president of Kiehl’s Since 1851, Chris helped inspire the company’s in-store recycling program which has already collected more than 1.5 million Kiehl’s containers to date. And their commitment to recycling has gone so much further. In the past three years, Kiehl’s has donated $200,000 to the Recycle Across America® “Let’s recycle right!”™ initiative to give approximately 280,000 free standardized labels to K-12 schools throughout the U.S. As a result, some of the schools are reporting their recycling levels have doubled since applying the standardized labels to their recycling bins; and one school district anticipates a net savings of $200,000 in landfill fees in the first year because their trash hauling has decreased so significantly since using the labels. “Chris and Kiehl’s, thank you for advancing recycling and helping the next generation recycle right! ” - R.A.A.

Past Tense The demolition of historic homes on South Beach has reached a climax, bringing with it attention and discussion as to what should—and should not—be protected. by sean mccaughan

y the time this article is published, the 1925 house designed by Walter DeGarmo at 42 Star Island Drive—one of the most visible and architecturally noteworthy houses in Miami Beach—will have been demolished. Easily visible to anyone traveling westbound on the MacArthur Causeway, the historic home will have been razed and the entire city of Miami Beach will have watched it happen. Lisa and Leonard Hochstein of The Real Housewives of Miami fame are replacing it with a 20,000-square-foot house that is more than double the size, complete with home theater, commercial-size kitchen, and staff quarters, for their growing family. Demolition began in late March, when a crew (both TV and demolition) arrived and started on the garage. Hochstein actions aside, Miami Beach has become known for its preservation efforts on structures ranging from hotels to apartments to prehistoric

circles. Everything from the Art Deco District in South Beach, the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, or even the Australian pines of Pine Tree Drive (especially the pines) is protected by laws, statutes, the city’s Historic Preservation Board, and tax breaks for preservation-minded developers. The fact that Miami Beach has such a great collection of historic buildings and districts is a testament to its strong preservation ethos, and some would argue that preservation is part of Miami’s boom. “Historic preservation was definitely the catalyst for [Miami Beach’s] success,” says Herb Sosa, a member of Miami Beach’s Historic Preservation Board. “The sun and beach have always been here, but it took preservation—the protection and promotion of our unique buildings, homes, and neighborhoods—to make South Beach a textbook study in what happens when the preservation stars align.” continued on page 254

gold coast report This as yet unprotected Star Island home, designed by August Geiger, was built in 1925 in the Mediterranean Revival style, and its exterior walls have the original rough stucco finish.

continued from page 253 Where many of the city’s preservation laws end, however, are single-family neighborhoods. A homeowner can’t be stopped from demolition based on the age of his or her house, and in a town flush with new wealth, tax breaks don’t seem to be the preservation incentive they used to be. The city is considering new laws meant to encourage homeowners to seek historic designation and limit the lot coverages of new houses that replace older, possibly historic, ones. Limiting the sizes would presumably deter owners from demolishing smaller structures to replace them with much larger ones. But the details of the new law, puzzlingly, might have the opposite effect by allowing larger houses in certain situations where they wouldn’t have been allowed before. The city has seen a spike in the loss of architecturally significant single-family houses of a certain age in recent years. Notable examples include modernist Jorge Arango’s Villa May on North Bay Road and a red brick Federal-style mansion by the famed Maurice Fatio, also on North Bay Road. (Arango also established the Arango Design Store, a South Florida institution.) Other noteworthy but unprotected houses have come under threat but remain standing. The longtime Miami Beach home of Al Capone, on Palm Island, is currently for sale and located on land far more valuable, monetarily, than the structure itself. The house is relatively small and simple compared to the baronial mansion that might replace it. According to a City Commission memo, owners made demolition requests for at least 25 “pre-1942 architecturally significant single-family

homes” in 2013, and 20 in 2012, a skyrocketing figure considering there were never more than five proposals a year for the seven years prior. And in 2009, there were none. The economic recovery seems to have people thinking demolition as opposed to preservation. In a twist of fate, the demolition of 42 Star Island Drive just may be the best thing to happen to Miami Beach’s single-family-home preservation movement. The house could be the martyr that galvanizes the city to action, led by preservationists and the Miami Design Preservation League, just as the almost mythical loss of the Senator Hotel in 1988 became the rallying cry that saved the rest of the Art Deco District. This momentum was summed up by Daniel Ciraldo of the MDPL when he told The Miami Herald, “We’re a small

town and we have our symbols. And when certain symbols are lost, it kind of gets a community together and makes us think, What can we do to make sure this doesn’t happen again? Somebody’s got to do it. It’s important to our city.” Whether because of the Hochsteins’ fame or the high profile that 42 Star Island already enjoyed due to its elaborate design and prominent location, something is afoot. After all, the threat of 42 Star Island’s demolition alone set off a legal battle between the Hochsteins and the MDPL that lasted longer than a year and resulted in national publicity, a six-month citywide moratorium on historic home demolitions, new legislation, and even a story line on The Real Housewives of Miami. It just might be the cause around which an invigorated historic preservation movement could rally.  OD

G

one are the days of condo flipping. South Florida buyers today are trending toward end use and want ease of lifestyle all in one project. Liliana Paez, sales and marketing director at Key International, and Peggy Fucci, CEO of One World Properties, discuss how this new buyer behavior dictates a higher concentration of never-before-seen amenities.

precious asset. And once you have a great architect who can address having three bedrooms in 1,500 or 1,600 square feet, it works. LP: That’s where we come in—being able to design a unit that is not as big but is still comfortable. It has the number of bedrooms that people need and has the price that they can pay. At 1010 Brickell, prices are from $400,000 up to $3 million for the penthouses. Regular units are up to $1.5 million. We have a lot of people on the waiting list. Many units have three reservations per unit. PF: Miami is a safe place; we’ve been fueled by the issues of Latin America. If that fails, the European market will be recovering and we’re going to see the Europeans and the North Americans coming. Our economy is recovering. In 2005, we didn’t have the plans that we have today to encourage buyers.

Liliana Paez: The buyer now is more serious and more long-term, not just [looking to] flip units like before. At 1010 Brickell, we said, “What could we do for the real end users who are going to live in these units?” Most parents here work. We thought about a place where, if the mom’s working and leaving the kid with the nanny [after] school, she could be comfortable that the nanny’s going to take them to the game room, basketball, squash, indoor tennis, indoor soccer, bowling, virtual golf—things that nobody’s done. Here we designed all these areas with glass walls, so, for example, if a parent is working out in the gym, they can see the kid’s gym. Peggy Fucci: At Paramount Fort Lauderdale Beach, we’re doing a glass children’s area as well. I think it’s a great feature. LP: We also thought about the family working from home. They don’t have meeting space, so we’ve done an amazing business center. We’re really targeting the end user and, specifically, the one who’s making the buying decision. Women always make the buying decision. PF: Fort Lauderdale is very different. You’re coming to truly enjoy your second home. To give the buyer that ability, we have Paramount Attaché, a personal concierge from the minute you start your reservation. You’re sold on the lifestyle as well. LP: We’re partnering up with Quintessentially and giving our buyers access to the concierge service when they convert. PF: Developers have to be extremely creative right now. People are looking for efficiency. When it comes to amenities, [taking into account] the everyday lifestyle of the buyer, making it convenient and easy is the most

Once again, the anticipated Sony Open Tennis returned to Key Biscayne for two weeks of sun, serves, and celebrities.

And in an exciting match, Novak Djokovic beat out number-one-ranked Rafael Nadal to claim his fourth Sony Open win.

Parting Shot Reputation Is Only Skin Deep don’t be fooled by the hair, the lips, the nails—they’re just part of the arsenal of this town’s power females. by betsy f. perry

D

up the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale; Gloria Estefan, whose foundation does enormous good works; Donna Shalala, president of the University of Miami; and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, whose name adorns the Center for the Performing Arts, are also among Miami’s sorority of smart alpha sisters helping to “turn the beat around.” Entrepreneur and 20-year Miami resident Loren Ridinger, whose online marketing and shopping site, Market America/shop.com, has 6 million customers generating $1 billion in sales, says, “Miami women get a bad rap because we’re often judged by first impressions, and if you’re in the party scene, people think that’s your life,” adding, “Pretty women are a distraction here, but that image is part of why people come to Miami—we can do a better job to change this perception.” Perhaps for the moment Miami’s coterie of wickedly smart women seems a smallish clan compared to those who prefer intense discussions about injectables. However, driven by similar passions, this brainy pack is a combustible force that makes up in power and influence what it lacks in numbers. And now that Miami is no longer a nest for aging blue-haired snowbirds, it’s inevitable that in this relatively small town, smart women are finding each other—the ho-hum status quo is getting a kick in the rear. Miami has a beautiful aesthetic appearance, but there’s much more on the inside. So get off the beach before your brain is damaged from a falling coconut, and remember, as Judge Judy puts it, “Beauty fades; dumb is forever.”  OD

oes anyone really care that despite the endless array of lush female bodies splayed across Miami’s beaches in barely-there bikinis, swishing Secretariat-like manes, some Miami girls might also have brains? Doubtful. After all, who comes to Miami to discuss the Big Bang theory or the commodities market (unless it’s the price of oil in suntan lotion)? Unlike their northern cousins, for whom brains are evidently a more marketable item, being a beach-lounging beauty is the Bitcoin of this Neverland dominated by Tinker Bells in thongs. However, take a few steps back from Collins Avenue’s runway and you will find an elite sorority of successful women who fuel Miami’s cultural, civic, and corporate world. Unfortunately, convincing their city sisters to put down the blow-dryer, change out of yoga wear, and join them is still a work in progress. “There was a time when women here were mostly nuts and sluts because Miami allowed for eccentricity and there was a high skin-to-air ratio,” says the sublime artist and native Miamian Michele Oka Doner. Considered part of our town’s royalty, Doner—whose mega-art installation lies underfoot at Miami International Airport and who is now creating a chandelier for Tiffany’s in the Design District—has seen Miami women slowly emerge to take part in some intellectual discourse, but she candidly admits, “Let’s face it, you come here to see exactly what one expects from a place where you take off a lot of clothes. People don’t come here to go to the public library!” Off the flip-flop path, other dynamos, including Bonnie Clearwater, who captained MOCA for years and now heads
