Seth Browarnik Lifts the Velvet Rope
An exclusive behind-the-velvet-rope look at Miami through the lens of photographer Seth Browarnik.
The New World Symphony’s Wallcast, right off Lincoln Road, was the talk of the town this season. This was the last one of 2011. Concerts from inside the New World Center are projected onto the 7,000-square-foot wall, and the sound is amazing. Anyone can bring a blanket, food, whatever, for exposure to some serious culture.
2. KIM KARDASHIAN AND KRIS HUMPHRIES
Kim’s a super-busy girl with her retail ventures and TV shows, but she and beau Kris Humphries managed to find some time together in the Magic City to hit LIV at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. A couple of days after this shot was taken, Humphries proposed, and now they’re engaged.
3.THE JUICE FOUNDATION
The wives and girlfriends of Miami Heat players were out in force at Neiman Marcus Coral Gables to show support for Jenine Howard’s Juice Foundation. Here we have Adrienne Williams, Monique Idlett (wife of music producer Timbaland), Howard, Tracy Mourning, Michelle Mashburn and Savannah Brinson. The Juice Foundation helps cancer patients devise ultra-healthy lifestyles, and was inspired by Juwan Howard’s childhood friend, Juice, who battled cancer.
4. RALLY FOR KIDS WITH CANCER SCAVENGER CUP
STK at the Gansevoort Miami Beach was one of the Rally pit stops the next day. Eva Longoria helped JR Ridinger dole out snacks to hungry hunters, but took a minute to check out this monstrously cool Mercedes-Benz McLaren.

The Rally started at the Eden Roc with this phenomenal Celebrity Draft Party, where participants selected celebs to help them navigate during the scavenger hunt. I caught Christina Milian and Jamie-Lynn Sigler chatting and enjoying the vibe.

10. AUDI A7 LAUNCH AT THE COLLECTION
More than 400 people showed up as The Collection revealed a new member in the Audi lineup: the A7. And having Dwyane Wade show up doesn’t hurt the energy level, either.
