Trawling The Gilded Halls Of The Villa By Barton G
What we we were really hanging out for was the afternoon tea service that kicks off at The Villa By Barton G on November 1. But since we were in town last week, we asked for a tour of the property anyway and were pretty happy with our consolation prize: laying eyes on that double-sized king bed in the suite that Donatella Versace used to sleep in when she visited her brother Gianni. (RIP).
Yes, our hints weren't quite obscure enough to stop people guessing that the massive bed indeed belongs to the former Versace Mansion, now super-exclusive guest home, restaurant and event space, The Villa By Barton G.
Take a spin through our gallery for a look at even more gilded grandeur. Just think: next time you see tourists posing outside those black gates along Ocean Drive you won't have to wonder what's on the other side...
