The Arsht Gala



Fashions for the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts’ Annual Gala

Always one of the highlights of the Miami social season, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts’ annual gala is almost here, and this time it’s in celebration of the Arsht Center’s 12th anniversary. A black-tie affair, gala proceeds will support the Arsht Center’s mission-driven arts education and community engagement programs. Aptly named “A Celebration of Leadership”, the full gala experience includes a cocktail reception, dinner, concert, dancing and dessert.

The glitzy benefit concert will be hosted by WPLG Local 10 News Anchor Calvin Hughes, and includes performances by Grammy Award-winners and jazz pianists Ramsey Lewis & Shelly Berg, Broadwayworld.com Award-winner known for her "The Streisand Songbook" performances, Ann Hampton Callaway, Emmy® Award-winner actor and vocalist Clint Holmes and pop, R&B and jazz vocalist Niki Haris.

Every year at the Arsht Center’s Gala VIPs walk the red carpet, making sure to dress to impress. Read on for some gown suggestions that’ll be sure to make you part of the fashion elite on this very special evening.
