While Leonardo DiCaprio is taking this year’s award for most popular celeb to be spotted around Miami during Art Basel, there were plenty of other A-listers who hit the scene.
Cardi B took off her shoes and performed barefoot at Miami nightclub Story around 3 a.m. Sunday before making her way over for another set at Booby Trap on the River.
Earlier in the day, she told fans on her Instagram Story, “Today’s gonna be my drunk night … we’re gonna be f–king turned the f–k up.”
Meanwhile, Larsa Pippen and Marcus Jordan were seen dancing together at a VIP table at E11even, where Travis Scott performed at 3 a.m. Pippen and the 31-year-old son of Michael Jordan first sparked dating rumors in September.
Billionaire Google founder Sergey Brin was also spotted in Miami at a Haute Living bash at engineering executive Bill Dean’s $40 million mega mansion, which includes its own nightclub.
Brin — who filed for divorce from wife Nicole Shanahan this summer amid rumors she had an affair with Elon Musk, which the two denied — is an investor in the party’s sponsor, electric boat company Navier.
Also seen out and about in the wee hours of the morning was artist Alec Monopoly, who hit up hot spot Gala. The new nightclub was flooded with stars like Kim Kardashian, Hailey Bieber and Serena Williams after attending Wayne and Cynthia Boich’s starry mansion party the previous night.

Rapper Trippie Redd showed up with a massive entourage to Maxim’s Art Week party at Hyde Beach at SLS South Beach.
“There were hoards of people trying to get into the party,” a spy told Page Six. “It was the place to be.”
Earlier in the week, A-listers were spotted all over the sunny city. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner enjoyed some Aperol Spritzes in the courtyard of Sofia Design District, while Meredith Marks attended the VIP grand opening of the rooftop spot Fabel.
Bella Thorne joined an intimate dinner celebrating Art Basel at GITANO Miami and Madonna showed up for one night only to celebrate YSL’s exhibit of Steven Meisel’s photographs from her 1992 cult book “Sex.”
Famed artist Jeff Koons was on hand at a Haute Living and Places.co dinner at Bagatelle celebrating his magazine cover.
Koons is currently working on “Phases,” which will send 125 sculptures — named after past cultural innovators — to the moon, which will be photographed, minted and sold as NFTs.
“I wanted to bring meaning to the NFT dialogue,” he told us. “So many NFTs have been PDFs, kind of somewhat on the surface. . . Humans are the carriers of meaning and I wanted to share that and embed that in the NFT.”
When asked if he felt that crypto would be affected by the recent implosion of Samuel Bankman-Fried exchange FTX, Koons doesn’t seem worried.
“I have been almost in a cash-free situation of not carrying paper money on me,” he told us. “The direction it’s been going in, the digital electronic world, seemed to make sense.”
He added, “But I’m sure there’s a lot of problems in that area that are being worked out. Like how something can exist and be regulated and meet the needs of the world community. But I am sure it is going in that direction.”
Also spotted over the weekend was John Mayer, who was seen looking at watches at Audemars Piguet. And NFT artist Beeple — whose work has gone for $69 million — was seen having a cocktail at the Artnet event at the Standard Spa Miami.
“Gossip Girl” star Evan Mock also “looked like he was having the best time” with Ocean Drive mag at a huge bash at the Fontainebleau.
Elsewhere, Cuba Gooding Jr. and girlfriend Claudine De Niro were seen at a mansion party thrown by Dragon Global CEO Bob Zangrillo that featured fire twirling acrobats and a hydrofoil performance involving a flame thrower.
Gregory Pellitteri and Mike Packman of Bridge, a personal data NFT, held a soirée on a mega yacht that brought out Ramona Singer and Marks, publicist Anna Rothschild and artist Camilla Webster.
And on another mega yacht, Fuel Venture Capital honored photographer Tony Kelly with an intimate soirée that included live music by a Latin jazz trio.
