What Happened When Victoria’s Secret Came to Miami Beach: Part 1

If you couldn’t make it to Miami for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this past weekend then that’s just sort of sad for you. Or if you were there but were too drunk to remember the night, don’t worry, you can re-live it right here, right now. We saw everything go down and this is what you missed, Part 1…

On Friday night there was a Gala for the official opening of the Fontainebleau Hotel on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. The Gala which kicked off the re-opening of the 1 billion dollar renovation project was like a Barmitzvah, minus the food and the cheesy dancers. There was a DJ, Robin Thicke, and Mariah Carey belting out a few numbers in diva-ish style. The most prominent families of Miami were in attendance and some seriously famous celebrities. A-Rod, Gwenyth Paltrow P. Diddy, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian plus step brother Brody Jenner, his ex-girlfriend and reality sweetheart Kristen Cavallari. Plus, Paris Hilton and her ex Stavros Niarchos, who didn’t so much as look at each other the whole weekend. Oh and Terrence Howard, Chloë Sevigny, Kate Hudson and Martha Stewart all mingled together upstairs in the ballroom’s VIP lounge away from the crowd.

As the Gala came died down around midnight, everyone stampeded toward the new underground Blade nightclub, off the Fontainebleau Hotel lobby. The lobby, the ballroom, and the club, were all grandiose and over the top. The face-lifted Fontainebleau Hotel looked more like it belonged
in Las Vegas then in Miami Beach.The crowd practically ran down the stairs into Blade for it’s soft opening, celebrities included. A wall of sushi awaited and got sucked up faster then the drinks, at first. Just as it should have been and the classy way to do it, food and drinks were on the house all night.

All the supermodels stayed in Friday Night to get some beauty rest and probably vomit a few more times. Tomorrow we will share all the juicy gossip that happened Staurday night and more photos. From the hyped up Victoria’s Secret Runway Show to the after party and then the after, after party. The night was filled with debauchery, gift bags and a little drama, of course.
