Miami turned into the art capital of the world with Art Basel well underway in the city notorious for sandy beaches, hot sun and glittering nightlife.

Drawing 50,000 visitors each year, Miami Art Basel is not only known for leading international galleries showcasing artists’ work (paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations, etc.), but also the swanky and sexy celebrity-filled parties including an annual birthday dinner and after-party for record producer, Rico Love (most notably known for his work with Beyoncé, Nelly, Kelly Rowland and TI).

In recent years, Love has celebrated his birthday during Miami Art Basel with a select group of his celebrity friends ranging from Diddy, Kelly Rowland and more. This year, his celebration was made extraordinary by legendary whisky company, Crown Royal. Guests attending Love’s party were among the first in the world to try the new Crown Royal XO – an extraordinary whisky finished to perfection in cognac casks. We have some grea exclusive pictures from the event.
