Classic Worth Avenue

WHAT A YEAR! Worth Avenue has shifted into

the national vocabulary through its Palm Beach

location—which it now shares with the Winter

White House. Its merchants’ association, which

brings you this magazine, is celebrating its 70th

year this season, and we’ve heard that Santa Claus will arrive at our annual

holiday tree lighting by yacht this year for the first time. We’ve seen

new businesses open on the Avenue, survived a hurricane, and ramped up

our website and social media.

Still, the enduring magic of Worth Avenue remains the same. It is a

boulevard that changes with the times, but is endowed with the classic

grace of its historic past—and the beauty of its Old World architecture.

Bougainvillea still tumbles from a high wall, fountains dance in secluded

vias, and you can hear the blue waves of the Atlantic Ocean just down the

street. Underlying it all is the Avenue’s legacy of customer service, its mix

of whimsy and haute couture and its special appeal as an international

dining and shopping destination.

MITCH HERRING PHOTOGRAPHY

We know we are ever-changing, but we also honor our traditions and

our commitment to you, the Worth Avenue visitor. Your delight is our

objective—and the hallmark of who we are.

We hope you enjoy your visit—and will come back again and again.

Marley Herring

President, Worth Avenue Association

PARKING IS PLENTIFUL. Historic Worth Avenue is a street of dreams, and parking is a breeze. Valet parking

is available at the Apollo parking lot, just north of Worth Avenue, off Hibiscus Avenue, and at the parking

garage, at 150 Worth Ave., just across from the beach. Plentiful two-hour parking spaces are available on Worth

Avenue itself, and two-hour metered parking can be found on Peruvian Avenue (one block north of Worth Avenue).

If you use one of our parking lots, be sure to ask when you are shopping to have your ticket validated by participating

merchants. Please visit our website, worth-avenue.com, for our calendar of events, merchandise and news.

Island Notes [ E A T & D R I N K ]

Fresh Takes

Try some of these innovative interpretations of menu favorites

from some of Palm Beach’s most exciting chefs

FOR MOST PEOPLE (like

me) who live to eat, we are always

looking for something new, something

beyond the usual suspects

that pop up on every restaurant’s

menu. (Brussels sprouts, grilled octopus, burrata,

truffle fries—we’re talking about you.) On

Palm Beach, I went in search of finding some

new spins on a few favorites—because “monotonous”

is not a word we should ever use when it

comes to dining experiences.

Kale still seems to be the hip green these

days, so most restaurants use it as a base for at

least one salad option. I find kale to be fairly

overwhelming to eat in its raw form, and I certainly

don’t want six-pack abs badly enough

to suffer over choking it down daily. But Café

Boulud’s Grilled Romaine and Kale Salad will

convert any hard-headed kale-hater into a

believer. Locally sourced from Kai Kai Farm

in Jupiter, the baby kale in this salad is far

fresher and less heavy than the standard version.

A special five-vegetable dressing is made

in house, and the fresh roasted vegetables used

in this recipe are also ingredients in the salad.

The first thing that immediately stands out is

Chef Ricky

Amezcua

that grilled char flavor. With just enough intensity,

it makes the dish far more indulgent than

you would ever expect in a salad featuring kale.

The corn adds some sweetness to the dish and a

welcome crunch. The other vegetable standout

is the spiced carrots, which are so flavorful and

interesting that they could hold their own as a

side dish (actually, can someone please make

this happen?!). It’s safe to say that this dish

truly kales the competition.

It wouldn’t be Palm Beach without a tuna tartare

dish on Every. Single. Menu. Think about it:

When was the last time a flavor profile of an ahi

tuna dish truly knocked you off your feet? Tuna

dishes seem to be more uniform than the

eyebrows on Instagram beauty bloggers,

so it’s tough to stand out.

Chef Ricky Amezcua of Jové Kitchen

+ Bar understands that, and he decided to

make a change by infusing the tuna with

flavors of different cuisines. The gingered

tuna tartare is a unique marriage of Asian

and Italian flavors, with the former coming

from the ginger flavor of the tuna, and the

latter provided by the sweet pepper coulis

that accompanies it. Chef Ricky aimed to

create a dish where the tuna would “speak

for itself,” so while most tuna tartare dishes say

“yawn,” this one is yelling “YOLO!”

On first bite, your palate is immediately hit

with a kick: the ginger flavor, although not too

overpowering, gives the dish exactly what it needs

to stand out. The tuna is topped with arugula,

which surprisingly brought out even more of the

ginger for me. The coulis is bold, flavorful and,

although unexpected, tastes right at home with

the gingery taste of the tuna. The dish is served

with lavash crackers, but I would skip it; the other

flavors stand on their own without it (who needs

extra carbs anyways, says no one ever).

If you’re tired of the usual, these are two

dishes that are definitely game-changers in the

dining world. Take two doses, and soon enough

Endless Summer, Palm Beach-style

Even the cocktails are beautiful at Ta-boó

BY JILL PAVLOV

THE LEGENDARY

American bistro and bar Ta-boó

claims itself the harbinger of

the arrival of social-season residents,

purporting that “if you

were not seen at Ta-boó, you were not

seen in town.” However, what I enjoyed

most about my first visit to this famed Palm

Beach icon was the lack of being “seen,” namely

at its dimly lit but ultra-trendy bar. Ta-boó is

the kind of place that you wander in and immediately

feel swankier, which sets the tone for

one of the musts at Taboo: an expertly mixed

craft cocktail.

Upon my arrival, I was immediately greeted

by friendly bartender Matt, who recommended

Ta-boó’s most popular libation, the Endless

Summer. The ingredients accompanying this

Tito’s Vodka-based drink are

just as refreshing as the name

would suggest: watermelon

liqueur, basil, lime and

cranberry.

This cocktail succeeds

where other tropical cocktails

in our region fail, in that

although it is very refreshing

and uses fruit ingredients,

it is, thankfully, not overly

sweet. As a girl who’s gone

on more first dates than I’d like to admit, I’ve

learned a thing or two about men, and that is

that they are terrified of “girly” drinks. But

despite how the Endless Summer may appear,

this drink is for everyone (well, not minors…).

The key to this drink is the balance. The watermelon

liqueur gives it that cool, refreshing

element, and the basil pulls it all together by

adding just the right amount of savory to rescue

the drink from a potential sugary demise.

And social butterflies rejoice: This drink is a

true conversation starter! As soon as it arrived,

I had other patrons asking me what I had just

ordered. Let’s be honest: Craft cocktails are

great, but isn’t half the reason we come to a

bar for the ambience and camaraderie? Try

indulging in an Endless Summer, no matter

what the season.

MEET WOODY MICHLEB

by Louise V.

Woody, thank you for talking to

us today, first, you relocated your

family to south Florida, and chose

Palm Beach as your salon’s home,

what drew you to the island?

Woody: My wife and I love the

area, obviously, it feels like a piece

of Europe when you walk around

by the salon on Worth Avenue, also

we have some Guests that live in

the area or visit annually for the

winter, so it made perfect sense.

You are well-known in your industry

for being in the public eye a lot! Tell

me about that?

Woody: I have been blessed with

a great career, I have styled hair

for and on television, I teach and

perform on stage, as well as I style

numerous celebrities, I also lead

the hair looks for 30-40 designers

every season for Fashion Week. For

the Spring Summer 2018 collections

in New York we worked with 41

designers on both their runway

shows and their look books.

So you help design the trends that

we all follow and dream of!

Woody: Yes we do. I believe there

is never one style or hair color in

fashion, but many styles depending

on what suits the individual person,

or designer. We work with some

designers that are very elegant and

feminine in their collections, and

we work with designers who can

be extremely couture. I would like

to say that we create something

for everyone when we plan the

hairstyles for the runway!

Who was your favorite look

recently?

Woody: We did a fun couture

ponytail with Elie Madi’s evening

wear collection. I love his designs;

they are worn by celebrities like

Katy Perry, Mel B, Nikki Minaj,

Beyonce and Britney Spears. We

got metal rings and white hair

extensions to make an extended

ponytail on the runway, it was a hit

with everyone!

You feel strongly about supporting

your community; tell me about

your charity affiliations?

Woody: For decades, as an

individual and as a business, have

supported charity as much as

possible. In Canada we raised over

$40,000 for Autistic Families, and

also did many fundraisers for other

charities such as Sick Kids Hospital

in Toronto. I have 4 children, one

of which was born very sick and

we spent months at Sick Kids,

so helping children’s charities

is always close to my heart. We

also are constantly donating to

charity events. Since we opened

in Palm Beach we have donated

more than $30,000 in gift cards,

silent auction items, raffle items

and VIP bag gifts to local events.

We also support with hair services

for models, entertainers or Board

Members of the organizations.

Woody Michleb,

(pictured left) is

a well known

celebrity hairstylist

and salon owner

in Palm Beach

One of your biggest fans is the

media sensation Madeline Stuart,

tell me about her?

Woody: Madeline Stuart (Maddie)

is amazing. She was the first model

to walk a major Fashion runway

with Downs Syndrome, and since

then has traveled the world

modeling for various events and

raising awareness for people with

disabilities. She proves that anyone

can achieve anything, regardless

of the hardships they face and

she inspires me. When we work

together she won’t let anyone else

touch her hair, I am her favorite!

Last year she launched her own

fashion line, it may not be the most

high-end line but I strongly support

what she stands for and who she is,

so love working on her collections.

Let’s get back to talking about hair!

What do you love about being a

stylist?

Woody: I love making people

feel good, but also I love helping

people. We strive to be a salon

that is less about “one visit and

one style”, and more of a longterm

relationship. We like to make

a plan with our Guests so they

can achieve “dream hair”! We

put a plan in place that continues

over a few months, and takes our

Guests from good to amazing in

terms of hair and scalp health, and

hair goals. We use microscopes to

conduct scalp analysis, we work

with a Doctor to recommend PRP

for skin restoration and hair growth,

and we offer treatment plans to

address specific concerns. We also

take the same approach with hair

color. We want our guests hair to

look and feel its best and plan out

the goals to get there together.

That makes me want to come to

see you right away! What makes

you different to the other salons in

Palm Beach, or South Florida?

Woody: I would like to say we

are approachable and a fun

environment where everyone feels

welcome and comfortable. We

believe you should feel relaxed

and at ease when you arrive for a

reservation with us, not somewhere

people feel intimidated by

because it is in Palm Beach. This

year we will be holding classes for

Guests on how to take care of their

own hair, and seminars on overall

wellness and health focused

around hair, skin and beauty. We

also take hygiene very seriously,

with individually sealed sanitized

hair brushes for every blow dry,

and strict hygiene rules in the

salon, even down to color bowls

and brushes being sanitized. It is

not something Guests usually think

of, but when they see what we do

they are pleasantly surprised and

appreciate the extra mile!

How can we find you?

Woody: We are located on the

corner of Hibiscus and Peruvian,

just one block from Worth Avenue

and across the street from the

Worth Avenue parking lot!

You can visit Woody and his team

year-round at their beautiful Palm

Beach Salon!

Fitness Makeover

Trends, much like seasons, come and go. HIIT, functional training, barre and even vegan gyms top the

charts for new workout programs to try this year.

“A training at the same time,”

LOT OF TRENDY

stuff is high-intensity interval

training, so you’re getting

cardio and resistance

says Craig Campbell, of Palm Beach Fitness. He

runs the gym with his wife, Aprill, and maintains

the belief that boring, same-day-everyday

fitness routines are gone for good.

Functional training, which centers on balance,

flexibility, movement and strength, is

more popular than ever. Typical moves include

box jumps, lunges, squats and pushups,

to name a few.

Barre, a low-impact, high-results training

program, works the entire body through

Pilates and ballet movements. By adding

light weights, it gives individuals an extra

challenge without compromising joints. It’s a

great way to strengthen and stretch muscles

simultaneously.

SuperFit Gym, owned by Julian and Yvonne

Gibson-Serrette, is focused on a combination

of fitness and food. The bodybuilding couple

started SuperFit in 2010 to help clients train

effectively and eat plant-based diets. The

owners continue to support healthy eating

through organizations such as The Advocacy

Vegan Society and Vegan Outreach.

If none of the trendy workouts sound like

something you want to try, stick to what you

love instead. Old favorites like CrossFit, boxing

and group classes are still helping people

achieve their health and wellness goals.

Boxing can burn 1,000 calories per session

and decrease stress levels. CrossFit offers a

great community training aspect, as do group

classes and boot camps.

And don’t forget about riding the waves on

a stand-up paddleboard (S.U.P.) yoga session

at Eau Spa in Manalapan. Eau Spa provides

private S.U.P. yoga lessons year-round, with

a handful of S.U.P. yoga classes during the

summer. According to the spa, S.U.P. yoga has

great physical and mental benefits, including

weight loss, stress relief and a sense of balance.

5 Tips for

Clean Eating

Although “clean eating” has been a buzzword

phrase for a few years, its definition and principles

are sometimes confused with diets, like Paleo or

Whole30. Unlike these short-term eating plans,

clean eating is a lifestyle change, not limited to

a couple weeks or a month. With a few simple

tweaks, it’s easy to follow the clean lifestyle and

create better eating (and buying) habits.

1 LOAD UP ON FRUITS AND VEGETABLES.

Be sure to shop the perimeter at Publix and stick

to whole, raw produce, such as carrots, apples,

strawberries, tomatoes, etc. Anything in its original,

fresh-from-the-farm condition is fair game.

Pick fresh lettuce and spinach over their bagged

counterparts when possible.

superfitvegan.com

With a focus on health combined

with plant-based nutrition, SuperFit

Gym provides clients with tailored programs

and meal suggestions.

2 CHOOSE MINIMALLY PROCESSED GRAINS.

Similar to produce, minimally processed grains

receive little treatment from harvest to packaging.

They provide more antioxidants and fiber

than white flour counterparts. Oats, quinoa and

wild rice all fall into this category.

3 STAY AWAY FROM SUGAR AND SALT. Sugar

has been shown to have addictive symptoms,

which makes individuals crave it more. Many

processed foods have salt in abundance, which

homemade versions lack or have in smaller

doses. Flavor dishes with citrus, herbs and spices

instead.

4 LIMIT PROCESSED FOODS. Resist the urge to

walk through the chip and cereal isles. Don’t even

bat an eye at them. Processed foods lack important

nutrients and stimulate the overproduction

of dopamine, which can lead to unhealthy cravings

and overeating.

5 DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. It’s been said

often enough, but it’s worth repeating. Men’s and

women’s bodies are made up of 50 to 60 percent

water. Women should aim to drink 9 cups of water

daily, while men should try to drink 13 cups

of water each day. You’ll stay hydrated and flush

out any toxins in your body.

FLIRT ON

Inspired by Miu Miu’s

classic Matelasse handbag,

its new Eau de Parfum

bottle is as playful as

its floral scent. (Neiman

Marcus, 151 Worth Ave.,

561/805-6165)

COLOR ME BAD

Be bold, and don’t be shy

about it with Saint Laurent’s

Rouge Pur Couture Vinyl

Cream Lip Stain, a highimpact

lipstick that packs

a punch of color. (Neiman

Marcus, 151 Worth Ave.,

561/805-6165)

RICH AND FULL

La Prairie’s Skin Caviar Absolute Filler is a volumeenhancing

formula that restores tone and density to the

skin. Using new technology, lipids and proteins are pulled

from caviar, then blended to release its full power.

(Neiman Marcus, 151 Worth Ave., 561/805-6165)

BRIGHT BURSTS

Indulge your sense of smell

with ElizabethW’s line

of perfume candles that

add just the right amount

of floral or citrus tones to

any room. (Eau Spa, 100 S.

Ocean Blvd., 561/540-4960)

42 WWW.WORTH-AVENUE.COM


FRESH FRUITS

Give your hair the jolt it needs with

Fekkai Apple Cider Shampoo. Infused

with apple cider, the shampoo clarifies

and renews overworked and tired hair.

BEHIND THE MASQUE

Book a luxurious spa appointment for

your hair with the Fekkai Technician

Color Care Luxe Color Masque, which

protects the look of color-treated hair.

(Frédéric Fekkai Salon & Spa at The

Brazilian Court Hotel, 301 Australian

Ave., 561/833-9930)

Hair Care 101

with Woody Michleb

SOME SAY THE EYES are the windows to the

soul, but we think your hair is just as revealing. We

chatted with famed hair stylist Woody Michleb from

his eponymous salon on Worth Avenue for styling tips

to make your tresses look their best. As he puts it, “I always say

you could wear the most beautiful dress and get great compliments,

but then you take it off. But your hair? You never take

that off.”

SHOWER POWER

Make your shower experience even more

refreshing with EuroSpa Pure Eucalyptus Oil

ShowerMist, which is aroma-therapy-based and

calms the respiratory system. (The Spa at Four

Seasons Resort Palm Beach, 2800 S. Ocean

Blvd., 561/533-3715)

MIST YOU

Awaken your senses with

skin mists by Red Flower.

Packed with nutrients like

Vitamin C, these mists will

give your skin that needed

wake-me-up feeling while

keeping it hydrated and

refreshed. (Eau Spa, 100 S.

Ocean Blvd., 561/540-4960)

VITAMIN SEA

Prep your face for the ultimate

skin experience with Osea’s

Sea Mineral Mist. Made

from 100-percent vegan

ingredients, this mist provides

mineral-rich hydration

and helps soften skin for a

balanced, toned and soothed

complexion. (The Breakers

Palm Beach, 1 S. County Road,

561/655-6611)

BEYOND HAIR

Fashion is what suits the individual. It’s what makes you feel

good and what gives you energy and a great overall feeling. At

our studio, our stylists understand it’s not just about the hair. It’s

also about everything else. We utilize the Golden Ratio: the measurement

of the face, hair and body and everything else around

us to create a hairstyle. Subconsciously, we look at something to

see if it is pleasant to the eye, and to do that, you have to look at

all aspects of the individual. After you analyze that, you can take

the hairstyle and color to sculpture it to the individual person.

THE RIGHT PRODUCTS ARE KEY

If you’re not receiving the right style and hair care, it’ll cost more

to maintain your look. One way to properly maintain your look

is by using the right styling products. A lot of hair products are

made of polymers or plastics that are used to enhance shelf life.

Using these products is basically the equivalent of washing your

hair with plastic. In the end, it’s doing more harm than good for

your hair.

HAIR AT HOME

Our professional stylists will have you looking gorgeous by the

end of your appointment, but what about when they are not with

you? What about all those hours when you’re away from the

salon? To keep your hair in perfect order, we’ve created at-home

consultation parties that show you how to maintain your hairstyle

on days when you’re not sitting in our stylist’s chair. Clients

are invited to bring friends, and we’ll provide the hors d’oeuvres

and hair-care expertise.

A TREND THAT WILL NEVER GO OUT OF STYLE

People should always look for trends that suit them and [that

are] easy for them to maintain. One trend that will always stay

true to me is having a healthy scalp and hair. It doesn’t matter

what clothes you’re wearing; having a healthy scalp and hair will

always look good on whatever outfit you have on.

Worth Avenue’s

Secret Courtyards

Discover the world of Worth Avenue’s charming vias

BY MEGAN KEARNEY

VIA AMORE:

FIND IT: Between St. John Boutique and

Island Company, 200 Block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: Via Amore is filled with

art and has something eye-catching everywhere

you look. Wrought iron gates encompass

the entrance walls, and sculptures and

fountains line each terrace. Lost? Be on the

lookout for the mosaic compass on the ground

near Café Via Flora, a quiet café surrounded

by trees, flowers and twinkling lights. Additionally,

make sure to spot the can’t-miss

mural in the via before enjoying a delicious

lunch.

VIA MARIO:

FIND IT: Between Maus and Hoffman and

Ralph Lauren, 300 block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: If you’re looking for a

true Italian feel, visit Via Mario. A fountain

greets you at the entrance of the via, and a reflecting

pond lines the entryway and leads you

to another eye-catching sculpture. If you want

to have a secluded picnic or lunch, Via Mario

is the place for you as it has tables and chairs

in every corner.

VIA PARIGI:

FIND IT: Between Brown Harris Stevens and

Il Papiro, 300 Block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: Although the corridor

that makes up the via may feel tiny at first,

Via Parigi is anything but. Adorned by a trellis

and intricate mosaic staircases, it opens up

into a large outdoor terrace. A fountain is the

centerpiece of Via Parigi, and abstract iron

statues of the four seasons surround it. This is

also home to Stubbs and Wootton, one of Palm

Beach’s trademark shoe salons, famous for its

embroidered slippers.

52 WWW.WORTH-AVENUE.COM


VIA ROMA:

FIND IT: Between H.T. Stuart Jewelers and

Mariko, 300 block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: Via Roma may seem

small at first glance, but when you reach the

end of the thin corridor, be sure to look up at

the intricate skylight that shines almost as

brightly as the jewelry in the window of H.T.

Stuart Jewelers and Mariko.

VIA BICE:

FIND IT: Between Peter Millar and Trillion,

300 block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: A blue-and-white

arched walkway leads you to a courtyard and

replica of Venus de Milo in Via Bice. The via

is most notable for Bice, a restaurant with authentic

Italian cuisine and romantic outdoor

dining in a spacious courtyard. From an extensive

pasta selection to desserts like tiramisu

and sorbet, Bice offers a great lunch or dinner

on the avenue.

VIA MIZNER:

FIND IT: Between Select Fine Art and Style

Paris, 300 block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: One of the most unique

aspects of the via is its small graves, home to

Mizner’s pet monkey Johnnie Brown, and

Laddie, a dog that belonged to a later Mizner

owner, Rose Sachs. As you walk around, if you

look closely enough, you’ll see the faded words

“Via Mizner” engraved into a small fountain,

reminding you exactly how much history

encompasses this via.

VIA DEMARIO

FIND IT: Between Courage B and East Coast

Jewels Jewelers, 300 block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: Before you enter the

via, look up at the entrance and spot the regal

lion head staring down at you and the beautiful

architecture and columns surrounding it.

Via DeMario is home to a classic statue surrounded

by exotic orchids—pearl white when

in full bloom.

VIA ENCANTADA:

FIND IT: Between Maje and Sandro, 200 block

WHAT NOT TO MISS: This whimsical via has

yellow walls and stark white chandeliers, with

pink and blue spiral staircases adding splashes

of color. A pink iron rose is showcased within

the via, adding to its playful ambience.

Destination:

Palm

By Marie Speed & John Thomason

On a map, it’s a small barrier island with the easternmost town in Florida, only

16 miles long. But its influence extends more than 100 years in the past and

across the globe. This is Palm Beach, the winter playground for the American

aristocracy and the rich from around the world.

It’s the place where a Bentley is your second car and your 10,000-square-foot house is

a “cottage.” You have one whole room dedicated to eveningwear and a year-round army

of gardeners who keep the privacy hedges tall, trimmed and impenetrable. It is a place of

winter White Houses and deb balls and bougainvillea and charity boards.

It is a place of dreams and tradition, whimsy and wannabes.

And there is no other town like it in the world.

WORTH AVENUE 69


Who

Lives Here?

Palm Beach, with one of the richest zip codes in the country, has a population

of around 10,500, which swells to 40,000 during the winter social season—

and therein lies a great social division: Townies vs. Snowbirds. Females

outnumber males, the racial makeup is 97 percent white, and the median age

for everyone is more than 68 years old. Census numbers from a few years ago place the

median household income at around $125,000 (the median Florida figure is about half

of that) and the median house value at more than $1 million. In 2003, The Robb Report

named Palm Beach as the “best place to live.”

But numbers don’t really show the full picture. Palm Beach is home to the megawealthy

of America and a fair number of household names. Houses routinely sell for

double-digit millions, and the population is slightly less seasonal, with the Old Guard

stereotype starting to erode as wealthy younger families with more money than pedigree

take up residence.

Charity work is very big here, and balls and benefits are a way of life, from the very

formal Red Cross Ball (ladies still wear tiaras) to the gala for the Palm Beach Zoo. And

about a million more. Despite its social grandstanding, longtime residents will tell you

the town has a real sense of community and a culture that has evolved since its incarnation

in the 1920s as a resort enclave.

A Little History

The Palm Beach story started more than a century ago

when railroad magnate Henry Flagler extended a railway

south and built the Royal Poinciana Hotel at its

terminus—in what is now Palm Beach. The raggedy tropical

island was thereby ordained a winter retreat for America’s

Golden Age society A-list. The railway continued south after

that, but this was the start of a legacy shared by few other

towns in America—one of privilege and exclusivity, money

and manners.

In those early days, Worth Avenue was a sleepy little outpost

with little more than an alligator concession, a far cry from

today’s designer boutiques and luxe restaurants and bumper-tobumper

luxury cars.

Over the years, as Palm Beach solidified its status as one of

the country’s social capitals, an insular community emerged,

marked by grand mansions and galas, celebrities and industrialists.

These days, the community still retains that cachet

although in a decidedly younger, more egalitarian style.

Dos & Don’ts

Dos

1. Do write a thank-you note. Always.

2. Do register for bridal gifts at Mary Mahoney.

3. Do avoid publicity. And photographers.

4. Do attend the galas your friends chair.

5. Do arrive on time. Especially for dinner parties.

6. Do listen more than you talk (and never interrupt).

7. Do keep a guest room perfectly outfitted, complete

with helpful phone numbers and books.

8. Do subscribe to the Social Register. Even though

you know it doesn’t matter, of course.

Don’ts

1. Don’t ask people what they do.

2. Don’t jog without wearing a shirt.

3. Don’t order “another” drink; ask that your cocktail

be refreshed.

4. Don’t wear a watch after 6 p.m. if you are a woman.

5. Don’t actually kiss anyone on the cheek; air kiss

above the cheek. Also, hugs are implied, not given.

6. Don’t compliment someone on an item he or she is

wearing and then ask what it cost or where it is from.

7. Don’t steal anyone else’s help.

8. Don’t call a private club for membership information;

members are only added via referrals.

The Look

THERE’S A PALM BEACH LOOK, of course, regardless of what anyone

says. The Palm Beach look is studiously casual, with bright colors, a cashmere

sweater loosely knotted around the neck, bare legs, good cheekbones.

Everyone is very thin, slightly Kennedy-esque, and blonde is standard. Men

drift toward an aging preppie look, with a little Italian tailoring thrown in

for good measure. Loafers by Gucci.

1. Lilly Pulitzer shift

COLLECTORS CORNER

Just as Worth Avenue is a world-renowned destination for classic and trendsetting apparel and jewelry, so too does this street of

dreams capture the pulse of the art market. Palm Beach’s remarkable concentration of high-end galleries offers work for all tastes

and styles, regardless of bankroll. And in a competitive culture, the gallerists of Worth Avenue share mutual respect. “We’re all

pretty collegial,” says David D. Ginn, director of Taglialatella Galleries. “We all tend to help each other and work with each other.”

Start your Worth Avenue gallery tour with these five recommended purveyors of fine art, jewelry and antiques.

The Legends

Five people who made

Palm Beach what it is today

Henry

Flagler

E.M.

Brelsford

Henry Flagler (pictured

left) was a powerful industrialist

and founder of Standard

Oil who also started

the Florida East Coast

Railway to open up Florida

for development. After he

built a magnificent resort

hotel in St. Augustine, he

began extending the railway

south to what is now

West Palm Beach and Palm

Beach, breaking ground

on the Royal Poinciana

Hotel in 1893. It took 1,000

workmen to complete

what was then the largest

wooden-structured hotel in

the world.

Not to be outdone, he

would go on to build the

Breakers and Whitehall,

among other Palm Beach

institutions. The latter,

pictured above, came about

after his third wife, Mary

Lily Kenan, remarked that

she wanted to live in a marble

mansion. (You could

say she gilded him into it.)

Today, Flagler is regarded

as the founding father of

Palm Beach, a distinction

he would share with Miami,

which he also put on the

map with his railroad.

E.M. Brelsford, the first

postmaster of Palm Beach,

named the town after

the coconut palms that

grew near Lake Worth.

The trees were planted

following the wreck of

the Providencia, a ship

from Trinidad, bound for

Spain, which ran aground

on Palm Beach in 1878. It

carried 20,000 coconuts’

worth of cargo, which pioneers

sold to locals for two

and a half cents apiece.

PALM BEACH’S

FAMOUS FACES

In addition to heavy hitters like Rod Stewart,

Rush Limbaugh, Howard Stern and Donald

Trump, Palm Beach has been home to the

following notable residents.

Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

actor

Addison

Mizner

Marjorie

Merriweather Post

Joseph Kennedy

and family

George Hamilton

actor

The dramatic Mediterranean

architecture

common to parts of

Worth Avenue and Palm

Beach can be traced

to Addison Mizner, an

eccentric architect ca.

1918 who found his way

to the nascent Palm

Beach, teamed up with

sewing machine heir Paris

Singer and designed his

own version of paradise.

His first project was the

Everglades Club, followed

by the extravagant oceanfront

estate El Mirasol

(The Sunflower), home of

Philadelphia stock market

titan Edward T. Stotesbury

and his wife, Eva,

Palm Beach’s first family

of society at the time.

Mizner went on to

build more estates for the

rich and famous as well

as shops and apartments

along Worth Avenue. In

1925 and 1926 he created

Via Mizner and Via Parigi,

two of the Avenue’s most

charming courtyards.

Marjorie Merriweather

Post was the General

Foods heiress (once married

to E.F. Hutton) who

reigned as Palm Beach’s

society queen in the 1920s

and 1930s. She and Hutton

built the lavish estate

Mar-a-Lago in the late

1920s, which later became

a private club and is today

a presidential getaway.

Mrs. Post was famous for

her parties at Mar-a-Lago,

including her signature

square dances.

In the early 1930s, bootlegger

Joseph P. Kennedy

purchased the Palm Beach

home La Guerida for

$115,000, about a third of

its market value. It would

become the Kennedy compound

for generations, a

place where both Joseph

and his son John would

indulge their sexual dalliances—Joseph

with film

starlet Gloria Swanson,

and John, much later, with

a roster of mistresses that

was rumored to be in the

hundreds.

Only when he was

convalescing from back

surgery, in the mid-1950s,

did JFK keep his libido in

check. While he was recuperating

at La Guerida,

his wife arranged for

mutual friend Grace Kelly

to show up in a sexy nurse

outfit and administer a

feeding. John didn’t even

notice her. As Murray

Weiss and Bill Hoffman

report it in Palm Beach

Babylon, Kelly lamented,

“I must be losing it.”

The Lifestyle

The Palm Beach lifestyle is tough to pin down. It’s part small-town: sand-dusted knees,

kids riding bikes, the illusion of a 1960s sitcom. But the looming backdrop of a Georgian

mansion tends to alter the vibe, and it becomes clear that, as Fitzgerald famously

said, “Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me.” Here’s

what we know:

Preferred Address

There’s no bad address in Palm Beach, but

oceanfront is primo, naturally.

Schools

Palm Beach Day Academy, Rosarian

Academy or Discovery Dayschool (Miss

Porter’s and Exeter later on)

Most Coveted

Club Membership

The Everglades Club is still Palm Beach’s

most exclusive private club, but the Bath

and Tennis Club is where most families

hang out. For men only, Coconuts (famous

for its annual Coconuts Ball) is the golden

ticket.

Wedding

Reception Venue

The Venetian Ballroom at The Breakers;

for the second marriage, the Gold Room.

And if you are one of the anointed: The

Orange Garden at the Everglades Club.

Party Planner

Everyone Hires

Boston-based Bryan Rafanelli (Rafanelli

Events), with offices in D.C. and New York.

Event planner to the stars, Rafanelli has done

the Red Cross Ball and the Bal Poudré at the

Flagler; he is to society parties what Peter

Duchin once was to society orchestras.

Where You Get Flowers

for the Home

Tom Mathieu of Tom Mathieu & Company

provides weekly flowers to many Palm

Beach estates, at a cost that can range

from $2,500 to $6,000 a week by some

estimates.

Hair Care

Philippe Barr of Frédéric Fekkai Salon is

the hairdresser of the hour these days. And

that expensive and distinctive Champagne

blonde color? Trade secret.

Restaurant Reservation

Table No. 1—the window table—at Ta-boo

is still the most coveted seat on The Avenue,

but HMF at The Breakers is action central

to spot who’s who in town, post-party revelers

and local personalities.

MUST-ATTEND

EVENTS

American Heart Association Ball

This Palm Beach tradition is the original Palm

Beach ball—the blue-chip ball of the season—and

is always held on Valentine’s Day.

American Red Cross International Ball

This white-tie-and-tiara evening may be a wee bit

stuffy (some would say pretentious), but it has its

share of glamour, along with visiting ambassadors

and dignitaries. Red gowns are highly favored.

Cancer Alliance of Health and Hope

“Shop the Day Away” luncheon

This luncheon features a silent auction, a celebrity

keynote speaker and more —and benefits cancer

patients and their families during their treatment

periods, easing their financial burdens.

Norton Museum of Art Gala

This night at the museum is how you show your

more cultured side—and it’s always well done.

The Preservation Foundation

of Palm Beach Annual Gala

This is old-guard dinner dancing at its best,

and you’d be lucky to receive an invitation.

If it arrives, so have you.

Great Happy Hours

THE COLONY HOTEL

Stroll down Memory Lane on Friday

nights (and hit the dance floor),

with Motown and all-time favorites

of the 1960s. (155 Hammon Ave.,

655-5430)

THE CHESTERFIELD

It’s always a party in the decadent

Leopard Lounge where “happy hour”

takes on a whole new meaning—early

as well as late. (363 Cocoanut Row,

659-5800)

BRAZILIAN COURT

HOTEL & BEACH CLUB

Enjoy cocktails under the stars on

the patio, or at the stylish bar at

Café Boulud. (301 Australian Ave.,

655-7740)

HMF AT THE BREAKERS

Partake in retro cocktails in the luxe

lounge at this historic (and very hot)

nightspot, or try The Seafood Bar for

a great ocean view. (1 S. County Road,

DON’T-MISS EXPERIENCES

♦ Take a walking, driving or biking tour of the island with your own private guide

through Leslie Diver’s Island Living Tours (868-7944; islandlivingpb.com). Driving

tours range from 90 minutes to two and a half hours and include a walk through

the vias on Worth Avenue. Biking tours (bikes not included—you can rent them

at the Palm Beach Bicycle Trail Shop) are 90 minutes each, and are a great way

to ogle the Island’s grand landmarked estates designed by the “Fab Four” of

esteemed Palm Beach architects: Addison Mizner, Marion Sims Wyeth, John Volk

and Maurice Fatio.

♦ Indulge in the Chesterfield Palm Beach’s afternoon tea, with sandwiches and

scones, daily from 1 to 5 p.m. in the library and courtyard. (363 Cocoanut Row,

659-5800)

♦ Window-shop on Worth Avenue and

wander through the vias for a distinctly

European strolling experience. Have

a glass of wine in one, buy a hat in

another. Turn off your phone. Take the

long way home.

♦ The municipal beach at the foot of

Worth Avenue offers Caribbean-blue

waters and broad beaches for sunbathing,

paddleboarding and snorkeling. Up

the beach just off The Breakers is one

of South Florida’s most popular dive

spots—The Breakers Reef—which is two

miles long and teeming with sea life,

from corals, sponges and tropical fish

to moray eels and even the occasional

whale shark.

♦ The Lake Trail, which follows the

Intracoastal on the western side of

the island, offers a great view of the

Intracoastal and an up-close look at the

homes and tropical vegetation of Palm

Beach.

♦ You needn’t be a tourist to book a

Ghosts of Palm Beach tour. We recently

embarked on this 90-minute walk on

the paranormal side, where we strolled

the Avenue and discovered legends

such as a poltergeist in Gucci, an

infamous double murder in the former

Cartier site, spectral rugrats in Ta-boo

and much more. Our tour guide, Rae,

included a few personal ghost stories,

a horror trivia game (with prizes!) and

even a dowsing session. Whether or not

you encounter a spirit, it’s a fun night of

harrowing history. Visit ghostsofpalmbeach.com

Society of the Four Arts

South Florida Has it All

Florida’s Gold Coast has something for everyone, from major sports teams to wild animals roaming free to

stately gilded mansions and museums. Get out there!

BY JACKIE SMITH AND JOHN THOMASON

Arts & Culture

FLAGLER MUSEUM, PALM BEACH

The development of Florida’s economy and

status as a tourist destination can be attributed

to Henry Flagler, who built the Florida

East Coast Railway from Jacksonville to Key

West. Flagler and his wife Mary Lily Kenan

spent their winters in the Beaux-Arts mansion

Whitehall, known today as the Flagler

Museum, a beautiful, well-preserved national

historic landmark.

Visitors to the museum can take self-guided

brochure tours, self-guided smart device tours

or docent-led tours of the estate and Henry

Flagler’s private railcar, built in 1886 for his

personal use. Visitors can also download the

free Flagler Museum app on their smartphones

prior to their visit to learn more about the

history of the museum as well as have access

to audio tours, an orientation video, events

calendar and more. Those who visit on Sunday

at 3:30 p.m. have the pleasure of hearing

Whitehall’s weekly organ demonstration, and

throughout the year, the Flagler hosts a rousing

bluegrass concert, a chamber music series,

a lecture series and art exhibitions evoking

aspects of the Gilded Age.

At the corner of Cocoanut Row and Whitehall

Way, the museum is open Tuesday through

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday

from noon to 5 p.m. Regular admission is $18

for adults, $10 for kids ages 13 to 17, $3 for children

ages 6 to 12, and free for children 6 and

younger. Call 561/655-2833 or visit flaglermuseum.us.

SOCIETY OF THE FOUR ARTS,

PALM BEACH

For more than 80 years, the Society of the

Four Arts has presented top-shelf cultural

programming to the Palm Beach community.

As its name suggests, its multi-building

campus houses a quartet of disciplines, with

hundreds of events filling its concert hall, gallery

space, cinema and library each year. The

Four Arts’ signature O’Keeffe Speaker Series,

running Tuesday afternoons from January to

April, welcomes nationally renowned figures

from the realms of politics, media, arts and

entertainment. Its concert series features the

best in orchestral, chamber and jazz music on

Wednesday nights and some Sunday afternoons

in season, and its film series features

foreign and domestic titles fresh off the arthouse

circuit on select Fridays. All year round,

visitors can enjoy the Philip Hulitar Sculpture

Garden and Four Arts Botanical Garden.

All programs are open to the public, with

admission reasonably priced. Most buildings in

the Society, at 2 Four Arts Plaza, are open from

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with

select hours on Saturday. The sculpture garden

and botanical garden are open seven days a

week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 561/655-7226

or visit fourarts.org.

PAN’S GARDEN, PALM BEACH

Standing with flute in hand, the bronze statue

of Pan of Rohallion welcomes visitors to this

green oasis in the center of Palm Beach. Pan’s

Garden is a half-acre filled with southern magnolia

trees, scarlet milkweeds and about 300

more species of Florida native vegetation.

Visitors can walk through the tranquil pathways

or relax on a bench under the garden’s

roofed, open pavilion. At 386 Hibiscus Ave.,

Pan’s Garden is open to the public weekdays

from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission to the

gardens is free. Call 561/832-0731.

NORTON MUSEUM OF ART,

WEST PALM BEACH

One of the Southeast’s premier art museums,

the Norton Museum of Art has been

a cultural fixture in West Palm Beach since

1941. Founded by Ralph Hubbard Norton and

wife Elizabeth Calhoun Norton, the museum

is known for the quality of its permanent collection,

ANN NORTON SCULPTURE GAR-

DENS, WEST PALM BEACH

After marrying Ralph Hubbard Norton,

founder of the Norton Museum of Art, in 1947,

sculptor and art collector Ann Weaver began

to fill their property, now the Ann Norton

Sculpture Gardens, with more than 100 works.

Visitors to her historic home and studio—a

waterfront property designed by Maurice Fatio—can

wander the grounds and admire Ann’s

artwork, including the nine monumental

sculptures she left behind, eight in brick and

one in granite. Seasonally changing exhibitions

feature sculptures from contemporary

and classic artists nestled among Ann’s work.

In addition to her love for sculpting, Ann

had a passion for wildlife, and she wanted her

work to be placed among plants and animals.

The luscious garden holds native plants as

well as more than 300 rare palms, and welcomes

birds and other animals that seasonally

migrate to the area.

On 2051 S. Flagler Drive, admission to the

gardens and home is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors,

$7 for children ages 5 and older, and free

for members; however, the gardens are closed

during the month of August. Hours are from

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.

as the red kangaroo, Malayan tiger and

Indian pygmy goose. Most recently, the zoo

The Garden Club

The green-thumbed members of this Palm Beach institution have been

beautifying the town for nine decades.

BY JOHN THOMASON

PALM BEACH HAS always been a cultivated town,

in more ways than one.

Entering its landmark 90th year in 2018, the Garden

Club of Palm Beach has been synonymous with the

island’s growth and beautification since its inception.

From helping develop Palm Beach’s very first town plan to financing

its three blocks of iconic coconut palms on Royal Palm Way to creating

the vertical Worth Avenue garden known as the Living Wall, the

Garden Club’s members have acted as pioneers and watchdogs, advocates

and educators.

As the Worth Avenue Association’s charity of choice for 2017/2018,

the Garden Club’s service will be recognized all season. The Association’s

historical walking tours of Palm Beach will benefit the Garden

Club, which supports civic projects and maintains the Society of the

Four Arts Botanical Garden, a free community resource.

“The Board of Directors selected the Garden Club as our charity of

choice this year as a way of showing appreciation for the amazing job

they do for Worth Avenue and the town of

Palm Beach,” says Marley Herring, president

of the Worth Avenue Association.

“The Garden Club has been instrumental

in the beautification of Worth Avenue,

and many of its members are longtime

patrons of our shops and restaurants.”

“We have a very worthwhile mission,”

says Sue Strickland, immediate past president,

and a member for nearly 15 years.

“It’s education, conservation and love of

horticulture. ”

“This is the only club I’ve ever belonged

to where people actually enjoy

doing the work,” adds current president

Elizabeth Thebault, a more than 20-year

member.

The Four Arts Botanical Garden is

a verdant sanctuary divided into nine

demonstration gardens with sculptures,

burbling fountains and ponds—and a

towering sausage tree. You’ll sees the aromatic

ylang-ylang flower, which became

the basis for Chanel No. 5; and Florida’s

state tree, the cabbage palm. Designated

Historical & Specimen trees, such as the

The Four Arts

Botanical Garden

Chinese Garden’s ilex, are protected by the town, and require a certified

arborist to trim them.

“It’s a great place to come often, because it changes so much,”

Strickland says.

The Garden Club’s 125 members include some heritage members, but

all active members sit on two committees, and from November through

April, they’re required to spend a morning each week tending the garden.

As Thebault says, “everybody works.”

“A criterion for the membership is a love of gardening, so it’s not just, ‘I

want to join the garden club because I want to hear a lecture,’” adds Strickland.

That said, the annual lecture is a generous perk. Last year, the Garden

Club hosted Martha Stewart, and previous speakers have included interior

designer Charlotte Moss and garden architect Daniel Ost. On Feb. 28, 2018,

the Garden Club will welcome Emma Manners, Duchess of Rutland.

Other popular Garden Club events include its House and Garden Tour,

of some of the island’s most outstanding private gardens, which raises

funds for the club in March. Each Arbor Day, it lectures schoolchildren

on the importance of horticulture, then

assists them in planting a tree in Bradley

Park. The club’s other community

donations include its annual Pine Jog

Environmental Education Center scholarship,

which funds the tuition for one of

the school’s graduate students.

The Garden Club’s efforts to keep

the town green have faced inevitable

impediments from developers. As

members described it in the Four Arts

Garden guidebook in 1985, “Notwithstanding

all our efforts, we have had

to suffer helplessly as more and more

of our island’s trees and native growth

disappear forever beneath the juggernaut

called ‘Bulldozer.’ … Nevertheless,

we still believe our Town to be more

beautiful than most!”

Few would disagree with this statement,

a testament to the Garden Club’s

dedication. “[The Club has] this history

of a shared common goal to improve

the community,” Strickland says. “We

credit the people who came before us

for making it a wonderful organization.”
