Art Basel celeb watch: Leo's gone, but his philanthropy (& art) will go on

And because it's not an official #ArtBasel day without a mention of Leonardo DiCaprio even though he fled town two days ago, the Titanic star actually did a bit more than party when he was here. While at Art Miami, he stopped by and made an undisclosed donation to The Perry J. Cohen Foundation started by Art Miami founder Nick Korniloff and wife Pamela Telvi Cohen, whose son Perry was lost at sea 19 weeks ago off the inlet of Jupiter.  That totally makes up for his picking and choosing of women like they were Deadliest Catch crab at his nightly bowling parties. 

Hublot and Haute Living came together with Hublot Brand Ambassador Dwyane Wade and wifey Gabrielle Union to host a dinner Friday chez Wade in honor of Art Basel and Hublot Loves Art. At the dinner: Adrien Brody, Miami Heat’s Justice Winslow, A-Rod, recording artist Omarion, actors Terrence Jenkins and Damon Wayans Jr., and Million Dollar Listing’s Josh Altman. Following the dinner, the crowd headed to the home of coal heir Wayne Boich for the after party at which Owen Wilson, Chris and Adrienne Bosh and director Michael Bay were spotted.

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes went out in the nasty weather Friday night to celebrate her Ocean Drive magazine cover at the magazine's annual Art of The Party at the home (and former home of A-Rod's) of Petra and Stephen Levin. Petra Levin took Holmes on a tour of her home's extensive art collection of sculpture, painting, photography and video art, while the ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise snapped several photos and selfies with her cracked iPhone.





A$AP Rocky
and Brooklyn-based artist Mark Anthony Green hosted a party Friday at the Dream South Beach debuting Barefoot, a collection of intimate unpublished photographs of the hip-hop star. The night began with a private dinner party at the hotel’s restaurant Naked Taco and continued with an after party held at HIGHBAR. Among the guests: Model Lily Collins pictured above (Photo/Aaron Davidson for Getty), and Kylie Jenner, who did not arrive in a wheelchair, but was seen supping with alleged boyfriend (this minute), the party's honoree, A$AP Rockstar--er, Rocky. Says one witness, "Who does she think she is?" Our question exactly.
