The Sexiest, Buzziest Bikini Moments From Miami Swim Week

There’s nothing quite like Miami Swim Week. Far from the atmosphere in New York and Paris, where fashion editors dressed in all-black uniforms furiously type on their iPhones while sitting front row, the check-in at one of this past week’s beachside runway shows was like the velvet rope at a hot new club. Showgoers, dressed in six-inch stilettos and microskirts, sipped cocktails while house music blared from loudspeakers.

And yet that was still nothing compared to what walked the runway. From now-household names in resortwear, like Clover Canyon, Wildfox, and Mara Hoffman, to more boutique brands like Suboo, Beach Bunny, and Gottex, we saw more skin than swimwear. That didn’t mean we didn’t keep our eyes peeled for the buzziest bikini moments and sexiest suits of the week. Here, the ones you’ll be talking about all Summer long.

Are Selena and Cara the New Taylor and Karlie?

The business of fashion may be fickle, but the friendships forged here certainly aren’t. At least, not the likes of stylish duo Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss. It’s hard to say Taylor’s name without thinking of Karlie, too, with both of them strolling the NYC streets in their preppy mix of denim or classic day dresses. They’ve easily cornered the market on fashionable BFFs – until now.

Making their case for a new model-pop-star duo, Cara Delevingne and Selena Gomez caught our attention boating in Saint-Tropez Monday, putting their cool-girl stamp on the whole outing. From Selena’s white one-piece to Cara’s Topshop overalls, this definitely wasn’t the look we’ve grown used to seeing from Karlie and Taylor, begging one question: are they being replaced?

Haute Couture is thought to be the most intricate and dazzling of all runway collections, so when a couture wedding gown walks down the runway, you know there’s magic in the air.
