Who’s Who at Swim Week Parties Galore
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Models, Pro Athletes, Real Housewives & More
I snapped these shots of two of the most beautiful women on earth: Sports Illustrated swimsuit models Irina Shayk and Chrissy Teigen. Teigen is engaged to nine-time Grammy award winning cutie John Legend – check out that engagement ring! And I love her beachy, tousled tresses.
I went up to swimsuit model Irina Shayk while she was eating (Yes – she eats! Chicken wings, none the less) and asked her for a picture and this is what she did. Statuesque and doll-like, she is a breathtaking beauty to behold. Her dress is Alexander Wang and her clutch and heels are Celine.
Real Housewives of Miami Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria posed with Miss Florida Myrrhanda Jones at the Mara Hoffman fashion show at the Raleigh hotel. As always, die for fashion plate Alexia’s ensemble. She literally always looks perfect – her outfits are always so flattering and so Miami. She represents our city well! And she is always so personable – more insider information on the Real Housewives of Miami to come on my blog when the new season airs – stay posted!!

This Mara Hoffman print Mercedes E-class was featured at the Raleigh hotel during swim week. I think Mercedes should start making this color option available in all their models.

Definitely one of the highlights of swim week for me was getting to meet two fashion icons – Bergdorf Goodman’s senior VP Linda Fargo and fashion designer Naeem Khan (famous for dressing Michelle Obama). They hosted a screening of the film Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s at Soho House. The film was very good and surprisingly – very funny! I definitely recommend for any and all who share a love for the fashion motherland, Bergdorf Goodman.
Former Real Housewife of Miami turned fashion designer Cristy Rice displayed her beautiful bikini designs from her line Cuban Rice at the Sagamore hotel during swim week. She’s a talented designer, the designs could not been more on-trend, feminine and beach-ready. The colors and prints are so Miami – I can’t wait to buy myself one of these bikinis!
