Art Basel Miami Beach: Ricky Martin, Man About Town

“I’m having a lot of fun, that’s all I’ve got to say.”
Ricky Martin, fresh off a night out with Miuccia Prada at the Prada Double Club opening on Tuesday night, was dressed in Dior Homme and mingling about at The Webster on Wednesday. But — by his own admission — his Art Basel Miami Beach week wasn’t about him; rather, he’s playing doting fiancé, supporting his husband-to-be Jwan Yosef on the art scene.
“To be honest, my fiancé is a conceptual artist, so I’m following him everywhere,” Martin said.
The two have been fitting in stops through the design fair, as well as a night out with Prada.
“That was the first time I met her — she’s adorable,” Martin said of the designer. “She’s very special.”
After Dior Homme, their week takes a charitable turn.
“We’re going to be busy — I have a gala tomorrow, the Global Gift gala, to fund-raise for Puerto Rico, with Eva Longoria,” Martin said. “It’s an event that we do every year, but this time, all the funds are going to Puerto Rico. It’s a very beautiful event — I’m very happy.”
Yosef then interjected with their schedule for the remainder of the week.
