We're still recovering from the Veuve Clicquot Carnaval this weekend, a champagne-filled fête for Miami's most discerning bubbly guzzlers. Guests didn't just bring with them a thirst for the finer things in life, they donned only their chicest as they watched samba dancers, batucada drummers, aerial performers, and fire dancers celebrate the spirit of Brazil bayside at Museum Park.
Behind the lush VIP ropes, celebs and local influencers gathered to sip glasses of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label, Rosé, and Veuve Clicquot Rich. Ciara hung out with Sports Illustrated models Chanel Iman and Nina Agdal, Gabrielle Union made a pitstop before heading to watch hubby Dwyane Wade at an adjacent Heat Game, Olivia Culpo led a parade of samba dancers and drummers, and Prince Royce learned the proper way to say Veuve, which rhymes with "love," not "Louvre." We're told he kept practicing all day.
It was the perfect day to sip champagne with friends while dressed to impress. Take a look at some of the best looks in the gallery above, and maybe whip out a glass of bubbly to celebrate.
