The United States’s premier contemporary art fair kicked off its tenth-anniversary edition yesterday with a heady mix of pricey works, a throng of collectors, along with a sprinkling of celebrities.
Held at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Florida, in attendance were NAOMI CAMPBELL, PHARRELL WILLIAMS, and DIDDY (who snagged a Tracey Emin wall sculpture for $71,000).
So DIDDY had enough money to buy a sculpture, but not a new jacket?
Last night the 2011 Victoria Secret Fashion show aired on CBS with a special performance by rapper NICKI MINAJ.

She kept the crowd and models in good spirits, and even looked like she had creative input in the Vicky Secret Pink line being showcased.
