While in Miami for Art Basel, Martha Stewart attended Roger Dubuis's event for the Velvet Collection presented by Dom Perignon and Haute Living at Villa Azur on Wednesday.
"Martha arrived right before dinner was served and was chatting with Daphne [Guinness]," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
"She was talking to her friends that she brought and seemed to be having a great time," the source adds. "She had a huge smile on her face. She looked really good!"
"Art Basel supposedly is Miami's largest revenue source bringing billions into the economy – the city looks amazing and vibrant," Stewart Tweeted earlier that day..
But the entertaining expert wasn't the only star on hand – Russell Simmons, Jonathan Cheban and Karolina Kurkova were also there to enjoy a 2003 Vintage Dom Perignon created by filmmaker David Lynch.

Who would have thought a yard sale could be fab? But there is one happening this weekend that’s way more luxury than low-rent.
Kimora Lee, star of Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane, and her ex husband, music mogul Russell Simmons, are putting many of their possessions – including an Andy Warhol piece – up for sale.
The couple, who split in 2006, sold their 3.96-acre estate for $13.9 million last month, and are selling what's left inside the sprawling New Jersey home they once shared.

Kimora Lee Simmons has won sole custody of her two daughters with hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5.
According to legal papers obtained by The Insider, Russell Simmons gets the girls one week out of every eight, plus extra time for summer vacations and holidays.
In addition, he pays $20,000 per child per month in child support. That cash flow stops when each reaches the age of 19 1/2, or until the daughter is emancipated, married, becomes self-supporting, joins the armed forces or stops living with Kimora Lee Simmons.

In her divorce filing in March, Lee, 33, requested that Simmons, 50, get "reasonable child visitation ... to be accompanied at all times by the children's nanny and security personnel."

Kimora Lee Simmons filed for divorce from her estranged husband, Russell Simmons, in Los Angeles County Superior Court Tuesday.
The couple announced that they had split up in March 2006, but said they had already been separated "for some time."
In court papers, Kimora, 32, cites irreconcilable differences and asks for legal and physical custody of the couple's two daughters, Ming, 8, and Aoki, 5. She requests that Simmons, 50, get "reasonable child visitation … to be accompanied at all times by the children's nanny and security personnel.
At the time of their initial separation in 2006, Simmons said in a statement: "Kimora and I will remain committed parents and caring friends with great love and admiration for each other."
Kimora has been dogged recently by rumors that she is expecting a child with boyfriend Djimon Hounsou. At an appearance in Chicago earlier this month, she told reporters. "I'm in the paper every single week – that I had a fight with my ex-husband, or that I was mad at one of his girlfriends, or that I'm pregnant, or that I demand Fiji water … Lies upon lies upon lies."
