The next hottie on our Beach Bunny list:
S A M A N T H A  H O O P E S

We had the pleasure of meeting the Pennsylvania native earlier this year, during a photoshoot for our new lingerie line, Love Haus, with fashion photographer, Yu Tsai.  This cheeky kitten had us right away with her playful attitude, confidence and quintessential bombshell bod.

She’s been having one hell of a year, beating out top models on MAXIM’s infamous Hot 100 List, as well as becoming a Rookie fave in this year’s Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Swimsuit issue.  She’s also crossed over the Beach Bunny family bridge, transitioning from lingerie to swimwear for our collaboration with Galore Mag.

Now, Samantha can add Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim to her own list!  Working with her’s a no-brainer and we couldn’t have been more thrilled to have her walk our 2015 Beach Bunny Swimwear show in Miami!

Check out some exclusive behind the scenes photos of Hoopes below, from backstage prep to the catwalk:

BEACH BUNNY SWIMWEAR FT. THE BLONDS MBFWS: MATHILDA BERNMARK

R O L L C A L L

__________________________________

Oh Mathilda… what’s there to say about Mathilda?

Well first of all, we can’t take our eyes off of her. No really, it’s a problem.

She’s also someone who embodies all of the following characteristics which after listing them out, just seems unfair:

- artistically talented (did we mention she’s a photographer/blogger?)
- crazy smart (she speaks 5 languages )
- super humble

The 23-year-old half Swedish – half Polish beauty hails from Berlin and stepped onto the swimwear scene for the first time as a candidate for our 2014 Beach Bunny Model Search, ultimately winning the title.  After shooting two campaigns for our 2015 collection, one of them being with fashion photographer, Yu Tsai, she took on the runway at Miami Swim Week in some of our hottest holographic looks!

Let’s take a peek together at some shots from Mathilda’s first swimwear catwalk at our 2015 MBFWS Show:

BEACH BUNNY SWIMWEAR FT. THE BLONDS MBFWS: HAILEY CLAUSON

R O L L C A L L

Next on our Beach Bunny role call: ultra bombshell, Hailey Clauson.
This is no newcomer!  She’s been killing it in the modeling industry since she was f o u r t e e n .  Oh baby [literally]

Now at 19, Clauson can add two major Beach Bunny campaigns shot with fashion photographer, Yu Tsai, to her already burgeoning list of impressive accomplishments.  With curves for days and a pout that won’t quit, it’s pretty obvious why we had to scoop up Ms. Clauson for ourselves… and we think it’s safe to say we won’t be letting go.

Check out some behind the scenes photos of Hailey as well as her crystalized opening for this year’s 2015 MBFWS Show

Lined in black jacquard (and if you don’t know what jacquard is, it’s pretty fancy) & adorned with silver rings & neon straps, it’s pretty obvious to us why this hot bikini is all the rage this summer.

Electric Barbarella: Beach Bunny Swimwear ft. The Blonds MBFW Swim 2015 Show

Beach Bunny Brings Us, ‘Electric Barbarella’

Article excerpt by Hope Wilkos of The Examiner

“Ten years of swimwear evolution has culminated to today, 2014, and the ten-year anniversary of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, which is underway right now from July 17 through July 21, 2014

It is simple to see why Mercedes-Benz rules the road as exotically decorated designer vehicles lined the entrance to the host hotel, The Raleigh, located on Collins Avenue in the heart of South Beach.

Friday evening, July 18, 2014, gave us back to back swim shows from Poko Pano, Dolores Cortes, Frankie’s Bikinis, Clover Canyon, Wildfox Swim, We Are Handsome, Sinesia Karol and one of the best shows of the evening was saved for last. Beach Bunnyfeaturing The Blonds, packed the Cabana Grande’ tent to capacity in anticipation of what promised to be the sexiest and most grandiose fashion presentation of the night. As the lights dimmed and the music echoed throughout the tent, all eyes were fixated on the runway as three mannequin-like models appeared at the top of the runway. At that very moment, the venue exploded with dazzling beauty as Beach Bunny 2015 Spring Presentation ‘Electric Barbarella’ began.

These were not your ordinary swimwear designs, nor were they your ordinary models. Hailey Clauson opened the show, recognized face of the 2014 Beach Bunny Summer Campaign and seen on famous designer runways for New York and Paris Fashion Week in the past. Sports Illustrated superstar,Samantha Hoopes, mesmerized with her sparkling and seductive smile. Yara Khmidan hit the runway after shooting the 2015Beach Bunny Campaign. The newest addition to the team of tantalizing professionals is the brand’s 2014 Model Search winner, Mathilda Bernmark.

Nothing could surpass this collection which transported us swiftly into a sultry future of the fierce fashionista living in a totally technological world. ‘Electric Barbarella’ has just landed and the 2015 Spring Presentation made us want to stay out in space and relish in the lavish pieces drenched in diamonds, electrifying colors, gleaming metallics and cosmic crystals. Stellar inspired prints displayed a vision of retro futurism combined with an incredibly sexy design aesthetic that we have come to expect and look forward to from this brand.

A huge thank you to our headlining sponsor, VO|CO Vodka Coconut water, sponsors TRESemmé, Per-fékt, The Delano for having us and The Raleigh.  We would also like to thank the team at Galore Mag for an amazing partnership as well as our stylists, The Blonds, for helping us put on such a great show!

We had an amazing time in Miami and can’t wait to do it all over again!

Stay tuned to see more pictures soon!
