MIAMI BEACH — Last week’s prestigious Art Basel fair brought a bevy of celebrities to Miami Beach (including big names such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Cindy Crawford), and some of them elected to stick around and enjoy the famous beaches.
Movie star Owen Wilson and fashion model Sofia Richie were each glimpsed separately this weekend partaking in some fun-in-the-sun.
Wilson, of course, is known primarily for comedies such as Wedding Crashers and various quirky outings from director Wes Anderson, with whom he has also shared writing duties.
On Friday, though, the film star was all about taking it easy, enjoy a leisurely late afternoon swim with friends.
Wilson, 49, was in fine form, looking toned and healthy as he splashed in the surf. He wore a pair of long green swim trunks with understated red designs and accents. His blond hair clung to his neck and the stubble on his chin bespoke the casual nature of his outing in the Sunshine State.
Wilson was spotted the previous day attending the opening of The Beach Club at 1 Hotel South Beach where he chatted with other celebs such as English songstress Ellie Goulding and the original “Fergie,” Sarah Ferguson.
Richie, 19, graced the beaches earlier in the day. Missing from her outing was famous beau Scott Disick, but that didn’t stop the model and daughter of famous singer Lionel Richie from having a good time!
Richie wore a tight white two-piece that showcased her graceful figure, leaving precious little to the imagination. She alternated her time between strolling the shore and surf and zooming around on her jet ski.
The blonde bombshell pulled her hair back into a ponytail and augmented her sparse ensemble with a couple of bracelets and a pair of tinted sunglasses. She was seen at times draping a billowing white cover over her shoulders and carrying a pair of sandals by Givenchy.
Presumably Richie will be making the scene with Disick again; the pair were both in Miami for Art Basel, and making up for lost time after spending Thanksgiving apart.
“She’s been great for him,” a source said of Richie’s influence on notorious party-boy Disick. “She’s made a big impact on his life and he hasn’t partied at all since they met.”
Time will tell whether Disick can actually go cold turkey on as basic an impulse as partying.
