Is it summer yet? You may think so from all the bikini runways and underwear photoshoots FashionTV has showcased as of late, but alas, it’s not 100 degree weather just yet.
That is, unless you’re in Miami for the totally smokin’ Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach, a four day long event presenting the best of established and emerging designers who want to show us their best swimwear to the tune of the hottest DJs.
If Miami doesn’t do it for you, maybe a hot, rocky landscape does. For the AussieBum men’s underwear photo shoot highlighting the Starr range, the crew picks an area that one member says reminds him of Australia. All the heat is forgotten once the male model takes off his shirt.
Besides its showcase of sexy swimwear and striptease, FashionTV is also all over the world bringing you the scoop from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia where the gorgeous model Maria Mogsolova gives us an exclusive look at the shows she’s walking in and ModaLisboa, where the best of Portugal’s top designers come out to play.
Top it off with a Rose Ball in Monaco with the royal family and Karl Lagerfeld and an exclusive photo shoot featuring Polish model Anja Rubik’s newest accessories for shoe guru Giuseppe Zanotti and you’ve got FashionTV’s amazing and eclectic lineup of the top trending videos of the week!
Here they are:
Bal De La Rose Du Rocher Ball in Monte Carlo
When Princess Grace Kelly established the Bal de la Rose du Rocher in 1954, she didn’t know it would still be going strong almost 60 years later. But the “Rose Ball” happened this year, thanks to Princess Caroline of Hanover, who happily gave her friend/top designer Karl Lagerfeld the chance to stage the concept of the event. Fabulous guests including Rita Ora, Natalia Vodianova, Theophilus London, and Cara Delevingne were in attendance and Princess Charlene, of course, made the rounds, with husband Prince Albert II in tow. Who was best dressed in their Chanel Couture? That’s for you to decide.
Sotto Swimwear Show - Bikini Models
The shiny bikinis and bathing suits of the Sotto swimwear collection made an impact at Funkshion Fashion Week Miami Beach and so did the muscular models who wore the pieces.
Maria Mogsolova: Top Model at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia
FashionTV gets an inside look at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia, where top model Maria Mogsolova walks for Timur Kim, Goga Nikabadze, Fyodor Golan, and Valentin Yudashkin and interviews the designers about the inspiration for the showcased collections.
Giuseppe Zanotti for Anja Rubik Accessories
Polish model Anja Rubik, a longtime fan and friend of Giuseppe Zanotti, has designed a capsule collection in collaboration with the shoe designer. For the ad campaign highlighting the shoes, bags, and accessories, Rubik has some of her best friends on set including photographer Paola Kudacki.
AussieBum: Starr Men’s Underwear Range
Behind-the-scenes at the AussieBum Starr range photo shoot for the men’s underwear collection, a crew members remarks that the hot, rocky landscape reminds him of Australia. Somehow, they do the entire shoot in under 30 minutes. (Luckily just enough time for us to scope out that HOT male model.)
ModaLisboa Fall/Winter 2013-2014
FashionTV went to Lisbon, Portugal to take in ModeLisboa Fall/Winter 2013-2014, the biggest fashion week in the area. Designers like Ricardo Preto, Dino Alves, and Nuno Baltazar showcased their Fall 2013 collections.
Don’t you wish it was summer already
