The hottest new Miami restaurants to try during Art Basel

Lee Brian Schrager, founder and director of the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival, dishes on the best new spots to dine during Art Basel.

Chotto Matte 1664 Lenox Ave.

This Miami Beach newcomer is a not-to-be-missed spot for Basel attendees, with its Japanese-Peruvian cuisine served up just steps from Lincoln Road, in a space easily mistaken for an art gallery. Aptly named, Chotto Matte (which translates from Japanese to “wait a minute”) invites the arteratti to revive and imbibe. Hot and cold appetizers offer refreshing comfort, while dishes like crispy duck with honey orange ponzu and beef short rib with white asparagus and teriyaki sauce are perfectly accompanied by yuca frita or arroz chifa. A vast robata grill menu, sushi rolls and sashimi round out the robust choices, capped off by plenty of creative libations for sipping.

Swan 90 NE 39th St.

Diners, imbibers and A-listers are all getting happy at this brand-new, pretty-in-pink resto and cocktail lounge created by Grammy-winner Pharrell Williams and Miami hospitality visionary David Grutman. Helming one of the most gorgeous new spaces in the Design District, “Top Chef Europe” champion Jean Imbert dishes up a fresh mix of signature menu items to match the atmosphere: creamy polenta with popcorn and brown butter, smoked beet carpacio and roasted chicken with curry-carrot puree. Upstairs at the connected Bar Bevy, the lounge offers up its own set of eclectic cocktails to go with the alluring hot-spot atmosphere.

Kaido 151 NE 41st St.

Tucked in the heart of the Design District’s sprawling, open-air Paradise Plaza, James Beard Best Chef nominee Brad Kilgore brings his longanticipated Asian-inspired concept to life just in time for Basel. But don’t expect the same dining routine as Kilgore’s other two acclaimed Miami concepts (Alter and Brava) — this one offers a more bespoke experience. Kilgore deploys his exceptional technique to create elevated Japanese fare, including highlights like lionfish sashimi and green papaya with Thai vinaigrette. Parisian bartender Nico de Soto has created distinct menus of Asian-focused classic cocktails, like the jasmine gimlet, plus a larger luxury set of concoctions meant to be shared with tablemates.

Boulud Sud 255 Biscayne Blvd. Way

Iconic chef Daniel Boulud’s second iteration of his Mediterranean concept is tucked in downtown Miami, inside the JW Marriott Marquis. Boulud’s elevated coastal cuisine is exceptionally spiced — throughout a menu of small, medium and large plates, as well as simply grilled options — designed to please any group of diners. Standouts to snack on include the lamb flatbread, tunisian beef tartare and crispy artichokes, followed by the Italian chicory salad or roasted mushroom with tomato confit and farm egg. For heartier plates, one can’t go wrong with the slow-baked salmon or chicken tagine — not to be outdone by Sud’s versatile wine list and seasonal craft cocktail program.

Fiola 1500 San Ignacio Ave.

Stunningly nestled in the landmark Sunset building in Coral Gables, celebrated chef Fabio Trabocchi’s latest endeavor brings his flagship Michelin-starred concept from DC to the burgeoning dining oasis of this historic Miami neighborhood. While the crudo and raw bar are alone enough to satiate the most sophisticated of palates, the pastas are the star of the show at what might be Miami’s best new restaurant. It’s difficult to go wrong, but the Roman shell cacio e pepe, lobster ravioli and beef short rib agnolotti shine. And groups can indulge in any number of larger familystyle offerings, like whole salt-crusted branzino or the Angus prime porterhouse.

The Surf Club Restaurant by Chef Thomas Keller 9011 Collins Ave.

Designed to pay homage to the Surf Club’s original 1930s Old Hollywood lifestyle, revered chef Thomas Keller’s first Florida restaurant shines in the Surfside neighborhood. Classic continental cuisine gets a refined touch, evidenced in dishes like avocado and garden vegetable louie, soft-boiled egg with caviar, dover sole meunière and beef short rib Wellington. The vintage glamour also caters to Miami’s contemporary diner, with special attention paid to the Champagnes, white burgundys and rosés offered to pair with the elegant cuisine.

BALEENkitchen 17315 Collins Ave.

A generous helping of surf and plenty of turf is offered at this reimagined Miami classic — a former Coconut Grove mainstay, now re-emerging nearly a decade later at Solé on the Ocean hotel in Sunny Isles. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the beaches, while diners tuck into aptly prepared favorites like the wedge BLT, cioppino, pan-roasted grouper, linguini bolognese and skirt steak frites. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the indoor and outdoor dining areas also offer an extensive cocktail list — complete with global reinterpretations of the classic Moscow mule.

Cardi B Wears Look-Alike Nicki Minaj Costume For New ‘Twerk’ Video: Who Wore It Better?

Sartorial shots fired! Cardi B is wearing a nearly identical copy of one of Nicki Minaj’s most iconic glittery bikini costumes. We’ve got the side by side music video looks.

Normally imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But since Cardi B and Nicki Minaj can’t stand each other, the 26-year-old rapper’s latest music video costume could be some serious fashion shade. Cardi has been filming in Miami for the past two days, working on the new music video for City Girls‘ “Twerk.” On Dec. 4 she was photographed on set wearing cleavage baring silver sequined bikini top, matching string bottoms and a layer of see-through silver glittery fringe raining down from her waistline. It’s a killer look. It’s also nearly identical to one that Nicki wore in a music video last year. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE COMPARISON PHOTOS.

The 35-year-old was featured on Future‘s 2017 song “You Da Baddest” and she wore — you guessed it — a silver glittery bikini top, a matching thong and had glittery silver fringe cascading down from her waist. The only noticeable difference is that Nicki’s bottoms tied in little bows on the sides while Cardi’s featured a string look. Even both ladies’ hair is styled nearly the same, with both wearing long black straight wigs. Considering how each woman loves to play with different colors and styles, the resemblance in the overall video looks is beyond uncanny.

Since it was the City Girls’ video, maybe their stylist was the one who decided to dress Cardi in something so similar to what Nicki has already rocked in the past. The group’s Yung Miami  is seen next to the “I Like It” rapper wearing almost the same getup. When Nicki sees what Cardi is wearing she’s definitely going to have a “B*tch stole my look” moment because Barbie wore that skimpy glittery costume throughout the nearly entire video for “You Da Baddest.” It wasn’t like it was just in one scene. Check it out for yourself:

To add insult to injury, Cardi not only is wearing almost the same costume, she’s filming the video in Miami Beach which is where Nicki and Future shot their vid. Nicki even struts down the beach walkway in her skimpy outfit, and she uses it for shock value to the hotel guests she encounters along her sexy trip there.

Maybe this is Cardi’s revenge after Nicki used the strip club workers who are planning to sue the “Bodak Yellow” rapper in her Nov. 29 video for “Good Form.” Cardi’s already facing misdemeanor assault charges in the case, where bartenders Baddie Gi and Jade claim Nicki ordered an attack on them after she allegedly  believed that Jade had slept with her husband Offset. The two ladies were seen twerking it up in “Good Form” as Nicki gave Cardi’s accusers a chance to shine.

Kim Kardashian Pokes Fun at Her Accidental Nip Slip on The Cher Show Opening Night Red Carpet

Kim Kardashian West unexpectedly showed a little bit of side boob on the red carpet at the opening night of The Cher Show on Broadway — and she didn’t mind poking fun at herself over it.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 38, wore form-fitting gunmetal dress with a halter neck, fringe detailing and an open back that was so dangerously low, that it exposed more of her chest than she intended.

But Kardashian West, who’s never ashamed to show off her famous assets, didn’t let it bother her.

The star posted a photo of the mishap on her Instagram Story and hilariously covered up her wardrobe malfunction with a very fitting GIF of Cher pulling her sunglasses down from her face.

Kardashian West was joined by husband Kanye West, 41, at the musical about the 72-year-old singer’s life, where he was put on blast by Broadway star Jarrod Spector (who plays Sonny Bono in the show) for texting during the performance.

“Hey @KanyeWest so cool that you’re here at @TheCherShow! If you look up from your cell phone you’ll see we’re doing a show up here,” Spector wrote on Twitter.

“It’s opening night,” the actor continued. “Kind of a big deal for us. Thanks so much.”

West later responded to Spector blasting his faux pas by writing, “To Cher and the Cher show team the dynamics of Cher and Sonny’s relationship made Kim and I grab each other’s hand and sing ‘I got you babe’ please pardon my lack of etiquette.”

He added, “We have so much appreciation for the energy you guys put into making this master piece.”

Quick! Meghan Markle’s $56 ASOS Dress Is Back in Stock

Meghan Markle nearly broke the internet when she stepped out wearing a $56 ASOS dress in New Zealand. Unfortunately, most shoppers were smacked upside the face with a big old sold-out sign while attempting to snag the affordable look. But as the saying goes, hard times don’t last forever. Today, I’m excited to let you know that the dress is finally back in stock.

And that’s not the end of the good news. Though Markle had the Markle's maternity dress version of the style, ASOS is also offering the dress in regular sizing options, too. And if you’re tall, ASOS created sizing options just for you as well. Not into the all-black look? There’s a yellow option ($56; asos.com) if you want to add a pop of color to your closet.

The black mini dress has a timeless silhouette that will never go out of style. But with Markle’s seal of approval, it very well might sell out. Get yours, like, now.

Why Versace is bringing back Liz Hurley’s iconic safety-pin dress

What is it with designers bringing back their greatest hits?

First, Donatella Versace offered an ode to her brother Gianni's archives, as well as to his most celebrated supermodel moment, in 2017, on the 20th anniversary of his murder; then Fendi brought back the baguette bag; then Marc Jacobs announced his "grunge redux" collection, which officially goes on sale this week.

And on Sunday night in New York, Versace was at it again, reincarnating the notorious safety-pin gown of 1994. You know: the one worn by then fairly unknown starlet Elizabeth Hurley, who was accompanying her boyfriend, Hugh Grant, to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral, catapulting her to paparazzi stardom overnight.

Also, the palm-tree-print chiffon number that Jennifer Lopez wore to the Grammy's in 2000, which won the public's eye that night.

Well, musicians do it, not to mention Hollywood (Mary Poppins Returns, anyone?), so why not fashion? There's always been a lot of mutual admiration and back-scratching between the two industries, after all.

And you can understand the thinking, in the current uncertain climate. It worked very well once; why shouldn't it work again? Plus, on the constantly churning fashion hamster wheel, it takes a little creative pressure off designers to constantly make something new and fabulous. Instead, they can give you the familiar and fabulous!

So Donatella did.

The occasion for the Versace trip down memory lane was the brand's first pre-fall collection show, its first show in New York and its first show as a member of the Michael Kors family – sorry, the Capri Holdings family (remember, the holding company has been renamed, now that it's a group). As a way of announcing Versace's new status and suggesting that, contrary to some fears, being owned by a US company would not make the brand forget its roots, the show was a pretty high-profile statement.

"Donatella came to me and said she wanted to do something big, and I was all for it!" John D Idol, chief executive of Capri, said before the show.

It was the first Versace show he attended, and he was wearing his first Versace suit (black, slim-cut), as well as a pair of Versace Chain Reaction sneakers (also black, with white soles). He was very excited.

He was standing on the edge of the cavernous former trading floor of the old American Stock Exchange, where the show was held. In the centre of the room was another recreation: the hand holding the torch from the Statue of Liberty — but this being Versace, it was gilded. Which was part of a whole ode-to-New-York thing that Versace saw as important to the collection, as well as being part of an ode-to-female-freedom thing (ditto).

The overarching theme, though, was again an ode to her brother, down to the fact the show was held on his birthday, Dec 2 (he would have been 72). And that one of the prints – a multicoloured heart number that replaced the palm trees that had been on ye olde J Lo dress (worn in Sunday's show by Amber Valletta, who also wore the original palm-tree dress on the Versace runway) – came from artist Jim Dine's work for Gianni's New York townhouse, which the designer had also used in a collection in 1997.

Because you can bring back the past, but you have to update it a little. Otherwise, it just looks like a lack of imagination.

So the oversize gold safety pins of fashion legend came not just on a slinky black gown slit up to here and sliced down to there, more asymmetric and twisty than the original, but also on nipped-in black jackets, holding together seams on the back and shoulders and paired with cropped mohair sweaters (stomachs were a prime erogenous zone) and black miniskirts.

Because you can bring back the past, but you have to update it a little. Otherwise, it just looks like a lack of imagination.

They also, not coincidentally, showed up half a world away on a bright yellow custom-made Versace jumpsuit that Beyoncé wore over the weekend at the Global Citizen concert in South Africa. It, too, was inspired by the pre-fall line (see! synergy!), highlighter shades being another part of the collection, although back on the New York runway they came in the form of vinyl minidresses. Which were in turn mixed in with a whole wild kingdom of not-in-nature animal prints themselves (and fur, though the fake kind), which were mixed in with the brand's signature Barocco swirls of gold, black and white, and more hearts, for men and women no matter.

Oh, and there were sneakers. Cat's eye bejewelled sunglasses and crazy 1960s' bouffants. One "I Love New York" Medusa-head T-shirt. Also lots of gold buttons, and even more celebrities, including Kim and Kanye, Bradley Cooper, Lupita Nyong'o, 2 Chainz, Paris Jackson and Blake Lively. So did the models, who stayed on the runway to sip Champagne and dance around in their new-vintage finery after the show was all over.

It was all a little head-spinning, in a Dr Who kind of time-travelling way. What decade were we in? Does it matter? For anyone who's not just playing dress-up, it should.

Before the show, Donatella tried to sum up the difference between then and now in her own way: Today "you can wear a short dress and a pair of sneakers and that's not sexy any more, it's cool," she said. It was a good try, and pretty fun to watch, but all this back-to-the-future-ness is starting to seem less and less convincing.

Why do people kiss under mistletoe at Christmas, what colour are its berries and where is the plant from?

Mistletoe is a Christmas staple, but what is it and why do people kiss underneath it? We have the history behind the festive custom…

What is the story behind it?

Mistletoe's mystical properties stem back to the Celts and Norse people who believed there was something mystical about the plant as the sprigs stayed green in winter even when the tree has lost its leaves.

It was also believed to bring luck in Medieval times.

One Norse tale explains its links to romance, love and kissing.

Balder, son of the goddess Frigga, was killed by an evil spirit with an arrow made of mistletoe.

Frigga was so distraught that her tears turned to white berries, coating the plant and symbolising her love for him.

Frigga was overjoyed by the white berries so she blessed the plant and promised a kiss to all who passed beneath it from that day onward.

This turned into a tradition in ancient times when visitors would kiss the hand of a host under the mistletoe when they arrived as a way of honouring the Norse legend.

Since then, the tradition has evolved to the custom we all know and in England, kissing under the mistletoe was first referred to in late 18th century England.

What is mistletoe?

Despite all the romantic connotations, mistletoe is actually a tree-killing parasite plant.

The plant can only thrive if its seeds are carried to a host tree by birds that have eaten the mistletoe berries.

The plant feeds off the host tree by stealing all the water and soil minerals which is why the mistletoe retains its vibrant green colour all through winter.

What colour are mistletoe berries?

Most species of mistletoe have waxy white berries.

There are approximately 1300 species of the plant, and some of them have red, pink or transparent berries.

Mistletoe berries are poisonous and should definitely not be ingested.

One French tradition holds that the reason mistletoe is poisonous is because it was growing on a tree that was used to make the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified.
