Call us art connoisseurs but we've taken a special interest in Art Miami this year. While thousands of modern art fans will flock to the fair, which encompasses work from 125 international galleries from December 3 - 8, we had our eyes pinned on last night's VIP preview from the Keszler Gallery.

Housed within Art Miami's complex, in the Wynwood Art District, is currently a photographic retrospective of Cindy Crawford. One of the original Nineties supermodels, along with Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, Keszler looked to fashion photographer Marco Glaviano for his famous black and white images of Crawford. The large-scale recreations of the portraits have been printed on canvas and sprinkled with diamond dust.

"Because of her friendship with Marco, whom she did a lot of photo shoots with in the '80s and the '90s, Cindy immediately said, 'I'd love to come, and I'd love to help you to promote it,'" owner of Keszler Gallery, Stephan Keszler told the Huffington Post.

And support the preview night Cindy did, in a slinky black dress with thick leather wrap-around belt. Though the mother-of-two might "wish I still had the body I had at 22!", our eyes were on the glowing 47-year-old Cindy, not the twenty-something that graced the canvases behind her.

As well as celebrating a zoomed-in view of Crawford's famous mole (just above her upper lip), Keszler will donate 10 percent of the exhibition's proceeds to Crawford's choice of charity, the American Family Children's Hospital.
