It’s difficult to put a moniker on this month’s cover model, Nicole Richie— reality star, best-selling author, jewelry designer, entrepreneur. However you look at it, she’s made a wonderful evolution to wife and doting mother since the last time she appeared on our cover, in 2005. We’re more than excited to see her grace our pages once again.

I’ve said it before, but March brings a certain madness to our town. On one end of the spectrum—spring break. The other—the Sony Ericsson Open tennis tournament—brings massive crowds to Key Biscayne’s Crandon Park from March 19 to April 1. The tennis is beautiful to watch in person, but beyond that, the celebrity-spotting’s not too shabby. Last year we saw everyone from LeBron James and Dwyane Wade to Brooklyn Decker and Anna Wintour.
Then there’s the music. Unlike last year’s “divorce,” Winter Music Conference will bleed into the Ultra Music Festival this year, drawing thousands to South Florida for the best in electronic music. And Ultra continues to diversify, while maintaining a roster of heavy hitters such as Tiësto, David Guetta, and Kaskade.
In between all of the month’s exciting events, be sure to check out the opening of the Tom Ford boutique in Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour on the 15th, and The Blacks’ Annual Gala—featuring Queen Latifah and Tony Bennett—at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on the 24th.
If you want to catch a glimpse of Nicole Richie in person, stay tuned for details on the issue release party we’ll be hosting in her honor. As always, see you around town….
