Miami Swim Week 2017

Swim Week is here again and it is just as steamy and fun-filled as Miami Beach where the annual event draws buyers, customers, media, and editors from all over the world.  The models are back in force, castings are complete, and the beach is lined with gorgeous bodies all in anticipation of the shows, the media coverage, and the parties and events that accompany one of the most-anticipated events on the fashion calendar.  

The runway shows and accompanying trade show features international swimwear and resort wear brands' collections for 2018, and sets the trends for the coming season.  Many brands make their debut at Swim Week, exposing them to the media and buyers from around the world, placing them alongside established labels.  I can't wait to see what the new collections have in store for next year, as there is something for every taste, body type, and vacation destination.

Model Crush Monday – Emily Ratajkowski

Not all models can make the leap to acting in films and tv, but that is exactly what Emily Ratajkowski has done, doing both with enormous success, to the point where it’s hard to tell where the modeling career stops and the acting career starts. 

Born in England to American parents, Emily began her career working for mass- market stores and brands before her star turn in Robin Thicke’s sexy Blurred Lines video, where she firmly established herself as a sex symbol.

Known for her perfect body she has appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, GQ, FHM, Treats, and Esquire.  As a vocal advocate for women’s rights, and her willingness to express her opinions, Emily’s appeal is widespread between both men and women. 

Moving quickly into acting, Emily has appeared in Maroone 5’s Move Somebody video, and movies Gone Girl, Entourage, and We are Your Friends. 

Emily’s 12.1 million followers on Instagram make her one of the top celebrities on the app, where she shares not only the most enviable swimwear shots (#goals) but her personal style #moregoals), behind the scenes shots, and political statements.  Emily is a woman with an amazing body along with brains and a voice, and isn’t afraid to use any of it to achieve her goals.  Sounds like the perfect definition of a twenty first century star.

Model Crush Monday – Sport’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition’s 2017 Cover Star Kate Upton!

Just when February could use a beautiful model in a striking bikini, often on an exotic beach, Sports Illustrated comes through with their annual Swimsuit Edition with the new crop of supermodels amazing female athletes, brightening the winter blues and reminding us that summer will be here soon enough.  Appearing on her third cover – and on three cover versions for 2017, is the rule-breaking, game-changing Kate Upton.

Kate first appeared as a rookie in the 2011 edition and sky-rocketed right on to the cover of the 2012 edition, curves and all, which had the impact of an earthquake on the modeling industry.  Kate’s appearance on the 2012 cover began an industry-wide conversation about body-acceptance and womanly curves, opening the doors for other models who were anything but stick-straight, for both fashion and beauty. 

At only twenty-four years old, Kate has gone from a local, commercial Miami model to fronting campaigns for Guess!, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, David Yurman and Sam Edelman, to starring as the heroine in the mobile app for Game Of War: Fire Age.  After appearing in several movies, including The Three Stooges, and alongside Cameron Diaz in The Other Woman, Kate has two new movies coming out this year, The Disaster Artist and The Layover.

What size IS sexy??  Size is clearly irrelevant in that conversation when you consider women like Kate.  Kudos Sports Illustrated for proving that beauty and sex appeal comes in all shapes and sizes!
