Actor, Armand Assante was the center of attention last night at Selecta magazine’s cover party at Bagatelle Miami Beach. He was seen posing for photos with guests and displaying his effortless charm as a video of his film The Mambo Kings (which premiered in Miami in 1992) was commemorated with Armand’s first cover on Selecta magazine and projected on the restaurant’s walls.
As per usual, Armand arrived looking dapper in a navy suit and sported a sleek auburn ponytail. Renown for being a family man, Armand’s said he’d consider a move to Miami to be near his oldest daughter who is an executive with Theory in New York; and who recently opened the fashion brand’s Miami Design District boutique. He said he’d also move here sooner if they make sequel to Private Benjamin, the 1980 hit film in which Armand famously played a sexy French doctor who stole the heart of Goldie Hawn (aka Private Benjamin), and women worldwide.
The party was packed and guests as well as Armand enjoyed a variety of Bagatelle’s signature dishes, including its truffle gnocchi, truffle pizza, grilled salmon and flowing Champagne throughout the evening.
At the event, Armand helped to celebrate the birthday of Selecta’s founder Nora Bulnes, who he’s been friends with for over 24 years.
