I was trying to figure out an angle of coverage for this year's Art Basel that was more amusing than art or fashion but tossed in turn for nights trying to think of something.


Then I arrived and my story began writing itself. After a cocktail or two and people just say the darndest things! Alas I will be posting the five best quotes from each day from the world's kookiest and craziest art event.

Which one is your favorite?

Quote 1
In the elevator going to the Art Ruby party:
"Darling every night when I get dressed I think, WWMPD."
"What's that?"
"What would Miss Piggy Do?"

Quote 2
In the middle of the dance floor at Le Baronsomeone was so excited they actually threw their hands in the air and screamed, "This is Art Basel Bitch!"

Quote 3
At the Raleigh:
"Can you believe A-Rod just left without tipping?"

Quote 4
In the jacuzzi at The Standard:
"OMG my bikini line is so bushy it looks like I'm wearing shorts!"

Quote 5
When trying to get into the LCD Sound System/ MOCA party a P.R. woman in a red silk dress shouts, "You're not on the list!"
"But I'm here to cover your event?"
"Darling we already have too much coverage!"
