Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim: Six Public Events You Won't Have to Sneak Into

The models are coming! The models are coming! Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim (aka Miami Swim Week) is getting ready to take over South Beach from July 19-23.

Nothing excites us more during the scorching hot summer months than seeing models strutting their stuff in swimwear. But good luck getting into most of the shows that week without a press badge or some sort of celebrity status.

That's where we've got you covered. We've scoured the city to dig up Miami Swim Week events that are open to the public, with plenty of VIP perks (think: mini spa treatments, goodie bags, open bars). Hey, some of them even have fashion shows (or at the very least, viewings of the shows you couldn't get into). Check them out after the jump.
