A string of scantily-clad models teetered down the runway this weekend at The Raleigh in Miami, Florida, for the annual Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, showcasing the sexiest swimwear designs in the world. Featuring names such as Lisa Blue, Monica Wise (L Space) and Mara Hoffman, Fashion Week Swim suffered no shortage of extravagant designs and often outrageous accessories ranging from surfboards to wings to elaborate headpieces with horns. While many designers also threw in day-to-night cover-ups and actual, um, clothing, most designs constituted one- or two-piece bathing suits — though even then, the variety of prints, styles and themes were enough to make the five-day event diverse.

Taking notes among the crowd were Dancing With The Stars professional Karina Smirnoff, Melrose Place graduate David Charvet and singer Christina Milian. See our slideshow for pictures of the designs and the celebrities here.
