Art Basel Miami 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, Kanye West, Paris Hilton, Lenny Kravitz, Steven Tyler, Elle Macpherson, and many more.
While some actually looked at art, most were just there to party — and we have the pictures to prove it.
