Overview

Finally, a book that takes you beyond the beautiful Art Deco buildings of Miami's South Beach to the glamorous twenty-first century people who build them, work in them, love and live in them. These beautiful people come to South Florida from all over the world, yet they share a surprisingly consistent vision of what is so special about this small shimmering slice of the state. From Cuban-born diva Gloria Estefan to the late Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace and a flock of rock-star hoteliers and real estate developers, their take on "SoBe" is all about the sun, the sea...and, of course, the other beautiful people who inhabit their neighborhood. Meet over forty of South Beach's most influential residents and immerse yourself in the fabulous exteriors and interiors of classic old hotels, world-famous restaurants, and soaring contemporary structures that abound in this subtropical paradise. Take a photographic tour of Casa Tua restaurant, the Eden Roc, National, and Raleigh hotels, Mellon Bank, the Wolfsonian Museum, and many more. The beauty here is exceptional, and the people and places of South Beach — its faces and façades — are part of what makes this alluring area so special.
