The style profile of a major golf event such as this week's Cadillac Championship doesn't have to be all polo shirts and checkered shorts—especially when Carolina Herrera is involved. The Venezuelan designer has partnered with Ivanka Trump to host a runway show of her spring 2014 collection at the star-studded tournament this Friday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. Why bring fashion to the fairway? "After seeing so much green, the women will be excited to see other colors and prints," notes Herrera. For music fans, the Miami Heat's DJ Irie will also play a role in the runway show happening at the Trump National Doral.
Here, we chat up Herrera—fresh from L.A. and a flurry of Oscar parties—about what's in store for the event, and what she thinks of host Ivanka's personal style. >>Read More

If there's one thing you need to know about getting dressed this season, it's that skin is in. Designers got flirty on spring 2014 runways, with peek-a-boo silhouettes, crop tops, perforated looks, and sheer panels seen across runways from New York to Milan. And in addition to all of these trends being perfect for Miami's warm temperatures, they were often shown in crisp white hues, which look gorgeous against sun-kissed South Beach skin. Here are my four favorite ways to show some skin this season, as well as a few dos and don'ts to find your most flattering look. >>Read More

If you ask us, music is what makes a fashion show a "show." And we always hear the greatest songs (old, new, and under the radar) when we jet up north for New York Fashion Week. Here are our top seven songs from the spring 2014 shows. Make them into a playlist and turn the Miami streets into your own personal runway.

The Look: Donna Karan rocketed back to the year her line originated, 1988. Think overalls, neoprene dresses, and bandana prints cascading down a runway with a graffitied backdrop. The show opened with “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” and closed with Rita Ora walking to “Fight for Your Right.”
