The 20 Craziest Bikinis From Fashion Week’s 2013 Swimwear Collection

The 20 craziest bikinis from fashion week

Every year bikini pioneers get together for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to discuss the latest in swimsuit technology. Designers like A.Z Araujo, Lisa Burke, and Anna Kosturova and so many more helped heat up the Miami’s Raleigh Hotel with revealing waterside attire of all shapes and colors. Trust us, there are bikinis out there that your minds can’t even comprehend! Some make you look like you’re covered in seaweed, some have more strings than we can ever imagine what to do with, and many others are clearly not meant to function in any other environment other than a runway.

So as a public service, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to compile the nuttiest two-pieces of the bunch. You’ve gotta stay ahead of the trends! So head on down to the gallery below for the 20 craziest bikinis of fashion week. These ain’t your grandma’s bikinis. Which we can probably all agree is for the best, because that would just be weird.

Celebrity Pals Support Kanye West At His Show At Paris Fashion Week

Kanye West can legitimately give himself a pat on the back. His show at Paris Fashion Week took place yesterday and we actually enjoyed some of the looks. It was light years better than his first collection, even though the models were complaining about the shoes. Kim Kardashian wore the same skyscraper heels — nice move, Kanye — but we didn’t really focus on them as we were too busy staring at the fur stole she had on. It looked like it was eating her alive. He was also in his humble-Kanye avatar telling WSJ, “I learned a lot from the last one. I’m learning every day. I’m a new designer.  I’m taking baby steps.”

He may be a new designer, but he ain’t a new celebrity. And therefore his celebrity pals turned up to support him in droves. Apart from Kim, Alicia Keys and husband Swizz Beatz also represented. Alicia has been a staple at Fashion Week this year turning up looking really gorgeous at Chanel earlier that day. Diddy was there with Cassie and Rosario Dawson. Leigh Lezark and Ricardo Tisci were also spotted. Take a look at the vibe in the gallery below. It also has photographs from the show, in case you’re curious. Which you totally are.

Naomi Campbell Steals The Show At Roberto Cavalli

There’s a reason why this particular batch of women were called “The Supers.” Roberto Cavalli certainly knows why. Naomi Campbell closed his Autumn-Winter 2012-2013 show in Milan yesterday and looked nothing short of stupendous in a shimmering burgundy, backless creation, as you can see above. The woman leaves quite an impression. A beaming Cavalli, who was backstage, said, “If there was an Oscar for world’s greatest model, then I would give it to Naomi Campbell, no question. Every dress you put on her, she knows how to interpret it — she is an actress of fashion.”

Naomi’s only done a handful of very select runway shows over the last five years, mostly for old friends. When asked why she consented to close Cavalli’s show, her simple answer was, “I am here because Roberto seduces me.”

Gaultier’s Runway Tribute To Amy Winehouse: Playful Or Tasteless?

When we first saw photos from Jean-Paul Gaultier’s Paris Couture show on Wednesday, we thought the designer’s tribute to Amy Winehouse — models in behive wigs, outfits slightly askew, as an a capella doowop band performed her hits — sounded playful and kind of sweet. Apparently, her family disagrees.

“The family was upset to see those pictures, they were a total shock,” Mitch Winehouse reportedly told The Sun, accusing the fashion house of cashing in on Amy’s image. (This coming from a grieving father who’s publishing a memoir about Amy due out this summer, but you know, he’s doing it for the kids.) Many agree that it was not in the best taste, what with the models’ smeared makeup and cigarettes not showing Amy at her best, and say JPG probably should be pledging some cash to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the way her Fred Perry Collection has done. We’re torn.

Battle Of The Wacky Fashion Week Outfits: Jessie J. Vs. Nicki Minaj

It looks like Jessie J is taking a page right out of Nicki Minaj‘s wild Harajuku Barbie notebook. Last week Nicki rocked a colorful and crazy ensemble to NY Fashion Week and earlier this week Jessie followed suit and hit London Fashion Week sporting an equally colorful and bizarre outfit. Do you think Jessie was inspired by Minaj’s gumballs? Or was the Brit songstress challenging Nicki to a wild fashion duel? Check out our gallery of Jessie J below and tell us which pop diva rocked the crazier outfit to Fashion Week. [Photo: Getty Images]

Kristen Stewart Sports A Darker ‘Do At London Fashion Show

Kristen Stewart took some time off from filming Snow White and the Huntsman to step out at the Mulberry 2012 fashion show in London last night. In typical K-Stew style, she switched her attire from a sexy short skirt to an autumnal woolen cardie as the show went on. But the biggest change was her long dark tresses, which seemed dyed from her usual chestnut  brown to jet black. Very goth! Or at least as goth as someone can look while standing next to a giant ice cream cone and watermelon beach balls. Regardless, we’re diggin’ the new ‘do. Check out more of Kristen’s London fashion tour (with special guest Kate Moss) in the gallery below!

Lindsay Lohan Mistaken For Donatella Versace At Fashion Show

Ooof. Well this is awkward. Lindsay Lohan caused quite a stir when she arrived at Cythia Rowley’s New York fashion show on Friday night. But unlike Nicki Minaj, it wasn’t because of what she was wearing. Hell, it wasn’t even because she was Lindsay Lohan. Apparently it’s because people thought she was 55-year old fashionita and plastic surgery victim enthusiast Donatella Versace. Oooh, that’s gotta sting. According the New York Magazine, Lindsay staged her big entrance right as the lights went low and the show was about to begin. And with her newly platinum locks, suspiciously plump lips, orange-hued skin, inappropriately tiny shorts and equally inappropriately huge sunglasses, the 25-year old starlet was a dead ringer for the elder Versace.

“Then, the entire room full of journalists sat ramrod straight and let out excited, disbelieving, four-letter expletives as we all realized this was actually Lindsay Freaking Lohan,” reports The Fug Girls. “The take-home here for Lindsay should be that we all initially mistook her for somebody much crispier who is thirty years her senior.” The photo you see above was taken back in 2009, so we shudder to think how the two look side by side right now. Between this and reports that little sister Ali has undergone plastic surgery, it has not been a good week to be a Lohan face! Is it in the genes to age weirdly? Or is it in the genes to make bad decisions?

Nicki Minaj Makes Gumballs Glam At Fashion Week

Nicki Minaj looked like she stepped off the Candy Land game board when she showed up at the Carolina Herrera Spring 2012 fashion show in New York City this morning. With Fashion Week is in full swing, we knew Miss Minaj had to up her usual bizarro steez. But she definitely outdid herself in her Amazing Technicolor Gumball Coat, aka “The Coat Of Many Flavors”. OK, it’s not actually made of candy, but it’s still pretty awesome/insane. And she even had the guts to wear it next to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour! Damn, that takes some serious gumballs. Luckily the prickly fashionista didn’t chew out Nicki’s gummy ensemble, but seemed to hit it off with the rapper. Check out the gallery below for more!

Celebs Show Their Stripes At ‘Missoni For Target’ Launch

Do not adjust your computer screen! A host of lovely faces turned out in their crazy colorful best last night at the Missoni For Target launch in New York City. The zig-zaggy styles are the trademark of the eccentric Italian designer Ottavio Missoni, who recently inked a deal to create a budget collection for the superstore. Elizabeth Olsen and Camilla Belle strolled into the celebration wearing stripey gowns, while Emma Roberts took a more casual approach in a bright cardigan. Looks like the only dress code for this shindig was “wild”. Other celebs to get ziggy with it include Selita Ebanks, Camila Alvez, Rachel Zoe and more. Check out more of the far out fashion in the gallery below!
