Miami's Swim Week reached its pinnacle as Sports Illustrated Swimsuit celebrated its historic 60th anniversary with a dazzling runway show at the W South Beach. The event, drawing over 1,500 guests, influencers, celebrities, and VIPs, was the hottest ticket in town.

The evening began with a star-studded red carpet where the who's who of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit world made their grand entrances. Notable arrivals included Achieng Agutu, Brooks Nader, Camille Kostek, Christen Harper, Ellie Thumann, Hunter McGrady, Jena Sims, Kamie Crawford, Katie Austin, Lauren Chan, Nicole Williams English, and Penny Lane. Joining them were Abbie Herbery, the dynamic Cavinder twins, Jilly Anais, Lele Pons, and Sarah Nicole Landry, all adding to the glamorous atmosphere.

As the red carpet excitement settled, the iconic runway show commenced, led by the brand's first digital edition cover model, Alix Earle. In a heartwarming twist, Alix surprised everyone by bringing her sisters on the runway, setting a familial tone for the evening. The trend continued with the Cavinder sisters, who captivated the audience with their synchronized stride down the catwalk. The surprises didn't end there—Brooks Nader revealed that her stunning brunette locks were, in fact, a wig crafted by the legendary Chris Appleton.

The runway was a showcase of the latest swimwear trends, featuring designs from Lain Snow, the Sports Illustrated Swimwear line, Knix, and more. Each piece highlighted the creativity and innovation driving the fashion world today.

The celebration continued at the VIP after-party held at WALL Lounge. Guests danced the night away, enjoying vibrant beats and refreshing drinks from Poppi, keeping the energy high and the smiles wide.

In its 60th year, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit proved once again why it remains an iconic brand, blending fashion, fun, and unforgettable moments at Miami's premier Swim Week event.
