Pharrell & Diddy Attend Silencio Art Basel Popup, Hosted by GREY GOOSE Vodka

SILENCIO & MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT Event Curated by Pharrell Williams & Takashi Murakami

Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 is in full effect! A lot of celebs, music artists, artists and film makers are in Miami for the festivities. Cassie was photo’d at Art Basel 2013 and Angela Simmons hit up DuJour magazine’s event to honor artist Marc Quinn at Delano Beach Club.

YDBR latest sighting was Pharrell Williams and Diddy. Last night Wednesday (December 4), Silencio once again brought the legendary Paris nightclub to the heart of the Design District with a pop-up lounge.  This highly anticipated event was hosted by Pharell Williams and contemporary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami and featured music by DJ Mike and specialty GREY GOOSE cocktails.

David Lynch, filmmaker and artist, worked with designer Raphael Navot, architectural agency Enia and light designer Thierry Dreyfus, to conceive and design “Silencio” inspired by the club from Lynch’s 2001 film Mulholland Drive.

It was the hottest party of the night – Pharrell arrived with Diddy early in the evening and made their rounds, mingling with pals and posing for photos.  Later, Pharrell took to the stage for an energetic performance that spurred a massive conga line around the room.

Suit, $2,540 and crewneck, $398, by Mattison. Hat by Happy Hour.

I remember hearing about HBO’s ‘The Wire’, however I do not remember watching that show. Most likely, I was either focusing on school or on the court playing basketball. Actor Michael B. Jordan was just 16-year-old when he played as Wallace (a drug dealer) on The Wire. He is also known for his roles as Reggie Montgomery in All My Children, quarterback Vince Howard on the NBC television series Friday Nights Lights, and Alex in Parenthood. He played Steve Montgomery in the 2012 film Chronicle and, in a lead role, shooting Victim Oscar Grant in the 2013 film Fruitvale Station.

The 26-year-old Santa Ana, California-native is all grown up now and showing his Hollywood adult body in his latest photo shoot. Jordan was named ‘Breakout Star of The Year‘ by GQ magazine. In his photo spread, Jordan is modeling pieces from rising designer brands including MattisonSkingraft, Public School, Stampd, and En Noir.

His photo spread came out nice! I love how he mixed up his style for a Downtown, Los Angeles blended with an Uptown, Harlem look. Enjoy the photos below:
