Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami

One of these summers we hope to make it to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami. Until then, we’ll content ourselves with recapping the highlights:

Part of us secretly still wants to grow to grow up to be a Vegas showgirl, and when we do, we’re donning this Mara Hoffman suit.


Another part of us wants to grow up to be a Palm Beach society matron. This Tibi cover up will satisfy that fantasy.


Bad boy designer Ed Hardy was new to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami, and one of the few that featured male models. He gets a thumbs up from us!

Forget yellow polka dots. We want this purple baby from Luli Fama:


As with any fashion week, the parties are nearly as important as the shows. We were sorry to miss the LYCRA® and Xtra Life LYCRA® Swim After-Show Party at the new W Miami. One of our favorite hairstylists, Gretta Monahan made it there and hung out with Whitney Port.


And Friday night’s party at Louis at the Gansevoort for this season’s Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer L*Space by Monica Wise. Andy Roddick must trust new bride Brooklyn Decker quite a bit to let her hang out with Gilles Marini. (JK–we know Gilles is a family man.)


And we’re still hoping one of our friends who went scored an extra bottle of the Essie Mars Red, which was designed exclusively for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami.


It matches the 2010 Mercedes E-Coup that greeted visitors to the tents.

You can’t buy the brilliant red shade anywhere–you had to be lucky enough to attend one of the parties where it was gifted. No matter–we hear it’s pretty close to Essie’s Forever Young. Guess that will have to do!
