DAY 2: WILDFOX
FLASHBACK FRIDAY was in full effect as the much-anticipated WILDFOX collection hit the runway. We could barely stay seated as the speakers blasted some of our fave tunes including: BBD's undisputed party hit, "Poison," old-school Mariah Carey and TLC. The swimwear collection featured whimsical graphics, iconic logos and well-known sayings. Pop colors and #CertifiedCOOL styling details like classic Reebok high tops completed the looks. This was one of the week's most enjoyable shows.

DAY 2: FRANKIE'S BIKINIS
Frankie's Bikinis runway show took place in the Grand Cabana at the Raleigh. Once again, we saw crochet on the runway. This time, the technique was used in a way that added interest to the collection's one-piece swimsuits. The beach-blown, loose side ponies tied with raffia and strips of left-over fabric and nude make up really gave a sexy beach hippie vibe to the show. The same raffia ties were also used as bracelets. Overall, the collection was calm, care-free and #CertifiedCOOL of course.

DAY 2: BEACH BUNNY
At the grand cabana, day 2 ended with glitz and glam as Beach Bunny's Blondes took over the runway. The over-the-top swimwear collection featured bold embellishments, luxurious textiles and clear references from lingerie. The hair was definitely giving us #BigHairDontCare attitude and the makeup was feminine and sexy with a strong eye and pouty lips. We're wondering if anyone else got the Bond Girl vibes like us.

About Beach Bunny:
You’ll find Beach Bunny Swimwear gracing the beautiful bodies of the world’s sexiest women. Designer Angela Chittenden is the brains — and body — behind Beach Bunny Swimwear. Angela’s passion for couture kicked in at an early age. “Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved fashion and swimwear,” she explains, taking a momentary break from her jam-packed schedule to speak about her design philosophy. “So being able to combine the two is a dream come true for me.” "There was nothing out there that was sexy and elegant. So I decided to design my own.” In designing that first Beach Bunny Swimwear line, Angela knew she wanted to create something different, something special, “something that would let women show off their bodies, feel sexy and confident, glamorous, flirty and fun all at the same time.”

She searched for unique fabrics, experimented with sexy cuts, added embellishments and hardware no one had ever thought to add to swimsuits before. Rather than looking at other swimwear designer lines, she found inspiration in the bedroom, blending elements of upscale lingerie into her styles.“Some people said I was crazy, that my designs were too risky, too out-there to catch on,” Angela remembers with a sly smile. “I guess they were wrong.”Angela’s boudoir-inspired lines were an instant hit with women looking for swimsuits that make a bold statement. By ignoring trends, Beach Bunny Swimwear started setting them. And grabbing the attention of the fashion, media and celebrity worlds. Sports Illustrated dedicated more pages of its Swimsuit issue to Beach Bunny Swimwear than any other line.
