“A fabulous international couple: New Yorker SHARI LIU—of Chinese, German and Russian descent—was not only a model but also the publisher of Elite Traveler magazine. Now this holder of two master’s degrees has been chosen as one of the Vogue 100, a list of influential women nationwide. She also sits on the board of directors of the Miami Symphony Orchestra and designs a line of handbags. Here with Venezuelan ALEJANDRO GRIMALDI, who is part Italian and Lebanese. Educated in London, this multilingual entrepreneur runs an investment banking firm. They met last spring at the Sony Ericsson Open and have been inseparable ever since, moving in together after just one month.”
“Two divine beauties and best friends:
With a background in art history, Londoner MUNISHA UNDERHILL (left) worked at Christie’s, The Henry Moore Foundation and Miami’s Museum of Contemporary Art; now she is the director of development at theAdrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Argentine SOL JUNCADELLA, who received a master’s in architecture with an emphasis on restoring classical buildings, is also on the boards of the United Way, MOCA, the Jackson Memorial Foundation, the International Kids Fund and Act 4 Me. Together they support many initiatives in the community, including The Wolfsonian-FIU Visionaries and the Green Room Society.”
