Inside All Of This Weekend's Star-Studded Art Basel Parties In Miami

Paris hilton nicky and Nicky Hilton were among the celebs partying at Art Basel.

Art Basel Miami Beach is an international contemporary art fair held each year in Miami Beach.

But since it began in 2002 as an offshoot of the annual art fair in Basel, Switzerland, Art Basel Miami Beach has become as much about the parties as the art.

This year’s fair brought out the likes of Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Miley Cyrus, and many more.

While some actually looked at art, most were just there to party  —  and we have the pictures to prove it.

Miley Cyrus kicked off the Art Basel festivities Wednesday night with a wild, private concert at the Raleigh Hotel.

The event was hosted by Jeffrey Deitch, Tommy Hilfiger, and V Magazine. Miley's performance was complete with blowup rainbows and mushrooms, and the audience was doused with glitter and bubbles.

Kim Kardashian caused quite a crowd at Paper Magazine's 'Break The Internet' issue release party.

The event was a seated dinner that Kim attended with pals Larsa Pippen, Jonathan Cheban, and Paper Magazine editorial director, Mickey Boardman.

Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurkova kept close at IWC's party launching the new Portofino midsize watch collection.
