Gossip #1: I looooove the work of Jose Parla, he is actually one of Johnny Boy's first artists that I collected. Back in the day when i was trolloping around South Beach, I met Jose and we became fast friends. I loved his passion and the way he saw the world, and always knew that he would be a success. Well, almost a decade later, he's toured the world, had solo shows everywhere, and now, his newest book out with fellow french artist JR titled Wrinkles of the City, Havana, Cuba a documentation of their time and installation work at the Havana Biennial, is going to be the head celebration at the Standard, complete with the first viewing of their soon to be released film on their time and subjects in Cuba, and a special super secret pop-up that you'll have to visit at the Standard and experience. Expect the crème de la crème of the art world here, and their hanger-oner's.

Gossip #2: The stunning and always elegant Stella McCartney will be doing a quick whirlwind in Miami this year, with a breakfast at her Bal Harbour shop, an Adidas event at a private home, and of course a stop by the uber chic fashion emporium The Webster. She'll host an English Tea Party in their salon where you can meet her personally and peruse the new collection. Hmmm, I wonder if she'll be hitting up the annual MOCA dinner this year, Johnny Boy hears she may be the special guest...shhhh!
