Aside from being a smorgasbord of contemporary art from around the globe, Expo is also where some of the world's most stylish artists, gallery owners, curators, and writers congregate to discuss and collect artworks (or, you know, party) for four days straight at Navy Pier.

There was a lot of black and a lot of chic eyewear, but many folks put their own spin on those gallery-fashion staples.
