"Moon over Miami," Susanne Bartsch riffed at the Crocker Partners' unveiling of White Square - a space designed by Richard Meier & Partners — at the highly anticipated Citigroup Center in Downtown Miami, on the Super Moon. The invitation-only event on December 7 featured exclusive installations by Susanne Bartsch in which guests looked into private, controversial moments through a peephole, a burlesque dancer caught the eyes of many, and a cheeky performance of The Nutcracker came with a twist.

"This is an art gallery," Bartsch told Hamptons.com. "Doing looks and expressing yourself via transformation is my art." She described her tableaus as a "sexy, surprise adventure. You come into this beautiful big space and all of a sudden you have a peep show into an intimate hidden one." One tableau is a retro looking girl making pancakes in an apron. Buxom pasties and bare behinds figure prominently. "Sex fantasies," said Bartsch. "The idea of a peep show is retro, but the big white peepholes make it modern."

Photographs by Paul Solberg and Christopher Makos - Andy Warhol's former personal photographer - were on display throughout the 7,000 square foot space for guests to admire while indulging in savory bites by celebrity Chef Ingrid Hoffmann, including chorizo empanadas, lamb chops, jumbo shrimp, & bacon-wrapped dates.

VIP party-goers stayed refreshed throughout the night at Acqua Di Parma's spa-inspired restrooms, with fragrances and lotion to take home with them.
