We just returned from Aruba after a weekend of fashionable fun in the sun. The island invited us to experience its first ever Aruba in Style, a series of runway shows, in store soirees, and cocktail celebrations. The island’s pristine beaches and turquoise waters set the perfect scene—imagine taking in the latest swimsuit styles from the comfort of your lounge chair with a margarita in hand. diNeila, Issa, Beach Bunny, Kathy Hilton, and Custo Barcelona were among the 19 designers who showed on the “happy island.” Here are some of the highlights:
Star spangled style ruled the runway at the Beach Bunny show. Bombshells clad in skimpy silhouettes brought high seas style to the tropical setting.
The brand's signature bright colors, interesting textures, and unique pattern combination were right at home on the Caribbean catwalk.
diNeila's stunning swimsuits brought a major dose of seaside style to the weekend. The Brazilian designer showed a rainbow of bikinis that models and mortals are sure to covet.
These beautiful birds made for a striking impression. As fashionistas caught some rays in between shows, these gorgeous pink creatures sauntered back on forth on the beach.
Palm prints and bold stripes made the British brand's Spring 2012 collection perfect for paradise.
Kathy used a bocce game to show her special occasion dresses and the looks were actually quite elegant. Though Paris and Nicky were a no show, Hilton and her hubby Rick spent the weekend golfing, dining, and relaxing at the Marriott.
Let's hear it for the boys. These handsome gents arrived on Renaissance Island via a Red Sail Sports boat and provided great eye candy at the Aruba in Style opening party. They love Aruba and we do too!
