SI Swimsuit models know that Miami Swim Week is one of the coolest parts of the job. A weekend full of fun vibes, bikinis, backstage dance parties and an adrenaline-inducing runway walk... it really doesn’t get any better.

This year‘s event took place at the beautiful W South Beach on June 1, and the day began with a DOGPOUND workout led by fitness influencer and model Katie Austin, followed by beauty treatments and lots of time for glam. Brand stars and content creators, who were invited to walk the runway for SI Swimsuit, stunned on the red carpet before strutting their stuff on the catwalk.

Throughout the weekend, the women stopped by the gifting bungalow, full of goodies and activations from event sponsors like Poppi, Knix and Tarte. They even learned how to make some fun, summery cocktails.
