Day 2 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, and I can easily sum up the evening in two words. Too sexy.
One of my favorite swim brands, Beach Bunny Swimwear, has teamed up with the infamous sister act of reality television, the Kardashians, with a collection for 2011 that takes sexy lingerie styles out of the bedroom and onto the beaches.
Teen starlet Selena Gomez was front and center seated next to the triple Kardashian threats - Kim, Khloé and Kourtney who were all wide smiles, bronzed skin and sporting sexy sheaths.
Inspired and influenced by Safari Glam and Old Hollywood, the collection featured bold mixtures and racy combinations with snakeskin, bling and lace reigning supreme. Each sister incorporated her own personal aesthetic with Kourtney taking nautical up a notch, Kim going heavy on the glam and Khloé taking a walk on the wild side with purple cobra prints and edgy gunmetal hardware.
Beach Bunny scored some of the world’s sexiest supermodels to strut their bunnylicious suits including: Sports Illustrated’s Jessica White, Chrissy Teigen, Dominique Piek, Maybelline’s Lisalla Montenegro and their 2010 Beach Bunny Model Search Winner Jessica Rafalowski who looked right at home on the runway.
What I loved - I was instantly drawn to the brief splashes of color provided by a few choice seafoam and turquoise pieces (a strapless ruffle jumper was hearted in my program) and I appreciated the innovative belting details. One thing is for sure, the Kardashians know women's bodies and they take all women's sizes and shapes into consideration. From petite and slim to tall and curvy physiques, the Special K's have a suit that will flatter every female figure and frame.
What I didn't love - A few models were accessorized with black lace blindfolds. Not exactly sure what kind of statement they were going for there (a see no evil/sex tape theme perhaps?). The biggest drawback? These highly embellished suits would leave me with some wicked awkward looking tan lines.
If you're local, hit D'A-S-H Miami (the K sisters' posh boutique) on Washington Ave to score some of these ultra provocative looks.
