While most people look to other locales for September fashion, those in town know there is no shortage of style setters in South Florida. From South Beach to Palm Beach, our community is always fashion-forward.
And you’ll find inspiration on the glossy pages of this issue’s white-hot fall fashion feature. Stealing the show is our cover star, Gloria Estefan. We’re flattered Estefan joined us for another astonishing Ocean Drive cover—it’s been 10 years since she last posed for us, back in October of 2003. Estefan is a Miamian through and through, and is a visible and active member of our community. She and husband Emilio are local restaurateurs and hoteliers, with properties lining famed Ocean Drive. The Star Island resident is also a University of Miami alumna, an avid Heat fan, and together with her husband has a minority stake in our Miami Dolphins (the first Hispanics to do so in NFL history).
Speaking of the Dolphins, the team kicks off its regular season this month, and we’re looking forward to a playoff-worthy record. With football games and a plethora of chic events, September promises to be bustling—check out oceandrive.com for more details.
See you around town….
