This past weekend in Miami, Veuve Clicquot hosted the “Clicquot Carnaval,” an event chock-full of champagne, samba, sunshine and celebs at the new Thompson Hotel. Emily Ratajkowski of Blurred Lines, Gone Girl, and the new Sports Illustrated issue, showed off her killer abs in a cream Parker cropped top and pants, while Padma Lakshmi of Top Chef fame kept a close eye on her flowing Pucci caftan, as the morning was quite breezy.
Meanwhile, Solange turned heads in a sheer, blush-colored Ellery dress, Manolo Blahnik sandals and rose gold Jennifer Fisher bangles. “I live in the center of where Mardi Gras is happening, so I couldn’t escape if I wanted to, but I don’t want to!” exclaimed the New Orleans resident of its own version of carnival. Declaring she goes “all out” for the event, she added, “It works out well for me because I can wear a mask.”
