It Was Hot in Miami: The Best (and Weirdest) Looks from the Swimwear Shows

The Mercedes Benz Fashion Week swimwear shows just finished in Miami. The swim shows are interesting because the models smile a lot more, everything is super colorful, and everyone's mostly naked.

Asses also figure very prominently, from the strategic coverage of them, to using them as a billboard for advertising. Intrigued? Click through to see a roundup of the best, coolest, and silliest things from the Miami swim runways this past week. *Photos: Getty
