Haute Living held its annual Haute 100 dinner earlier this month at the new Faena Hotel. The event honored the most influential and philanthropic people in Miami (the list was released in Haute Living Miami’s April-May print edition).
Movie director Brett Ratner was honored with Haute Living’s “Outstanding Achievement Award” and partners of the night included Dom Perignon, Hublot, Douglas Elliman, Prestige Imports, Jet Smarter, and VULT.
Guests – including Ugo Colombo – arrived at the Art Deco-inspired Saxony Bar after passing through “the cathedral” – the Faena’s splendid lobby that contains murals evoking imagery from Alan Faena’s Argentina.
Coco Simone sang various songs as guests filed into the theater. They enjoyed a sumptuous, four-course dinner, and then Anthony Shriver took to the stage to talk about his friend and Outstanding Achievement award recipient – Hollywood director and producer, Brett Ratner.

In the “Spring Home Edition” of Indulge, Ugo Colombo is named as one of the people who move Miami.
In this interview with Ugo Colombo he discusses his first paying job, his philosophy on building, his greatest accomplishment (Bristol Tower), his thoughts on trying new things, and he reveals something many people don’t know about him (he doesn’t consider himself an extrovert).
As a mover in Miami, Ugo Colombo also shares his views about the evolution of Miami saying:
“In Miami 30 years ago, there was nothing….But I saw the potential of the location. I always believed Miami would grow and become a major metropolis because of its proximity and appeal to Europe and Latin America. We just needed to build the infrastructure for people to come. Today, Miami is probably surpassing the quality of life in Los Angeles.”
