The Studs of Swim Week 2014: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim's Hottest Guys

Categories: Fashion

Your typical man doesn't get that excited about fashion. While many women might have trouble choosing between a fashiongasm and an actual orgasm (believe us, it's debatable), the fashion appreciation gene just doesn't seem like it's in the average male makeup.

Men in Miami, however, have been trained differently. There is one time of the year where the hotties of the 305 take an interest pertaining to fashion: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. And it's not just because of the girls. Ah, hell, who are we kidding? It's mostly because of the T&A bouncing down the runway. But some of these guys have other reasons besides wiping up their drool and pouring ice down their pants. Some of them are genuinely there to mingle, make business connections, or draw inspiration for the next collection of their contemporary line.

But whatever the reason, superficial or not, there's only one thing that matters to us: their hotness. And during last night's show, the presence of hot men completely plagued the premises. Can we say hottie overload?

Here are but a few of MBFW Swim's studliest guys.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Kick-Off Party Was a Total Snoozer

Fashion Week is a momentous occasion; essentially, it's a merry-go-round of back-to-back runway shows enticing audiences with what's yet to come for the next season in major metropolises worldwide. And for anyone who cares, if just alittle, about what he or she puts on his or her back, it's kind of a big deal.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim is just as paramount as its bigger and older sister shows. So what if we have less fabric to work with? Swimsuits to a Miamian are what a floor length, down jacket is to a Bostonian in the middle of January - a crucial necessity.

Even more important than its runway shuffles and invite-only parties, however, is its introduction.

iOye, mamasita!

Yeah, we're hollering at you, because you're a hot Latina lady and we think you should be on our television screens.

Miami is known for many things, but as Jack Donaghy eloquently puts it, we're mostly known for our looks and culture: "Why does anyone go to Miami? Ass...and the burgeoning art scene."

Today, those two Miami pinnacles will come together: The Grove (AKAMiami's original arts hub) is hosting an open casting call for a new dating show (AKA the ass).

Suck it in, push 'em up, and strip down. Swim Week is here.

Don't be surprised if you notice more beautiful people than usual while you're partying this weekend, especially if you're bar hopping in South Beach. Bikini models, fashion bloggers, and industry buyers alike will be putting their best faces on (with loads of waterproof mascara, we assume) for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim.

Of course, if you live in Miami year-round, you know that hot chicks in bikinis aren't exactly unicorns down here. So you might want to mix some live music, theater, or comedy into this weekend's model-hunting itinerary.

Miami Shores Council Rejects Gay Marriage Equality Resolution

Categories: Culture

The sleepy village of Miami Shores has long been seen as a suburban haven for LGBT people, and is a reliable liberal bastion in elections. But this past Tuesday, the village council voted 3 to 2 to reject a resolution supporting marriage equality in Florida. The vote came on the heels of a contentious and bizarre session of public comments that showcased the passions on both sides of the debate.

Free Library to Make Metrorail Ride a Lot More Pleasant

Waiting on a concrete platform for a steel box to whisk you off to work is a less-than-stimulating way to start your morning. And this is Miami, not Manhattan, so good luck finding a street musician, magician, or Human of New York to keep you entertained.

But Daniel Caballero, one of the recent winners of Miami's Public Space Challenge, hopes to change all that by adding a little literary flair to the city's Metrorail platforms.

The Average Girl's Guide to Swim Week: Ten Events You Can Actually Attend

Folks in the fashion industry aren't as vain as you think. Sure, they fancy a good fashion show of bronzed beauties gliding down a white, cold runway in swimsuits baring minimal coverage -- but it's not always about envy and Lycra monokinis for them.

Sometimes, it's about what happens after the shows come to a halt. Come on, you know what we're talking about: it's the ragers, the bougie exclusivity - dammit, it's the complimentary drinks.

The parties thrown during Swim Week are on another level of epic. But sadly, to get into the majority of these events, you have to know somebody who knows somebody who knows the sister of the promoter throwing the event. In simple terms: its near impossible to squiggle you're way into one of these things.

Luckily, we've rounded up a couple of happenings just as fabulous, if not moreso, than their private party primos; some of which don't even require a swipe of a credit card or the scent of dolla-dolla bills y'all.

Here are the events during MBFW that you -- yes, you -- can get into. Have fun, you crazy kids!

This toast was created by an artist. Selfie Toast can be created by you.
Remember when a piece of toast that vaguely resembled the Virgin Mary sold on eBay for $28,000? Here's some news that might make you nostagic for those days: A company in Vermont is selling personalized toaster that'll burn your selfie into a piece of bread.

That means it's only a matter of time before one of your friends "ironically" orders one. This is, after all, the city that set a Guinness World Record for selfies just a few short months ago.

Much like Aesop, the ancient Greek storyteller, Leonel Matheu is a fabulist of the first order whose vivid imagery combines an everyman figure with animals and nature to caution against materialism, greed, and man's destructive encroachment on the environment.

"Crossroads of the Dystopia," a new exhibit at the Frost Art Museum, marks Matheu's first major museum survey and corrals 20 years of his oeuvre, featuring a collection of more than 70 works ranging from drawings with colored pencils, ink on paper, oil on canvases, public art installations, video and multimedia installations.

The sprawling exhibit is presented by Wynwood's Dot Fifty-One Gallery, which reps the artist locally, and was curated by El Nuevo critic Janet Batet who's deft eye has delivered a seamless impression of Matheu's most distinctive imagery.

Here's how to stay entertained the next time the lightning strikes.
