Christina Milian and Brooke Burke attend Lisa Blue Show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2013 has finally kicked-off and the celebrities are making their presence known in Miami Beach! On July 19th, I attended the Lisa Blue Swim Show at The Raleigh Hotel where the beautiful R&B singer Christina Milian (pictured on the right) and Brooke Burke, Host of Dancing with the Stars, were sitting front row to watch the latest swimwear by Designer Lisa Burke. The show began with a slow paced song to get everyone in a relaxed state of mind. Models wore elegant white Grecian inspired swimsuits along with gold adornments on their hair. But the tempo quickly changed and the audience enjoyed an eclectic show featuring a fun little strut down the catwalk by Flamenco dancers and a live paper dragon performance. Lisa Burke incorporated images of dragons in her 2013 swimwear collection because according to Lisa "a dragon kept coming to me whilst mediating in Bali last year." Talk about intense inspiration! Make sure to check out the phenomenal headpieces below...
