MIAMI SWIM WEEK: Dolores Cortes Summer 2014

Bam! The Dolores Cortes girl is no wallflower.  The only flowers here are super bright, tropical and three-dimensional.  The Spanish designer displayed a very bold collection of swimwear for her Mecedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim show.

The solid colored suits had all sorts of twisted straps that wrapped around the body in sexy ways.  The prints were big and loud.  There were floral appliques on top of the tropical printed flowers just in case you "missed" them.  Just in case you thought these were too sweet and feminine, the collection was accessorized with big statement jewelry.  Gold spiked necklaces, cuffs, earrings acted like Wonder Woman's accouterments to the Amazonian models.

You know that messy, sticky, almost ratty hair you get after a day at the beach? Well, somehow the hairstylists made that look work on this runway.  The eyes on the models were well beyond 'smoky' and into 'raccoon' territory that they were so dark.  This worked on the most confident of models, but overwhelmed others.

Dolores herself looked like a proud Mom in her printed dress and statement necklace.  It's like the gold spiked bikini was her baby and she was releasing the warrior out into the world...
