Have a Model Vacation: The Most Stylish Beaches and Accessories
Every July, Miami’s faces of fashion flock to South Florida for two of the country’s most important fashion shows: the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim and Funkshion: Swim Fashion Week Miami Beach. It’s an occasion to see the latest in summer and resort fashion.
Some of the shows’ attendees — including models, stylists, designers, and the überhip — shared with Yahoo Travel their secrets for ideal summer trips, how to keep hair looking glamorous during hot days, and what items or keepsakes they never travel without.

Brazilian model Fernanda Uesler moved to Miami over four-and-a-half years ago on a whim. She came for a visit to try modeling and has never left. While backstage getting ready for the swim show in the penthouse of the Raleigh hotel in South Beach, we photographed her on the balcony adjacent to the hair and makeup room. With a gorgeous Miami skyline in the background, she told us some of her ideal travel locations.
Favorite beach and why:
“Mykonos and Santorini, Greece, because the color of water is simply gorgeous — a dark marine clear.”

When traveling, what’s a place that made you say to yourself, “I could live here instead of where I live now”?
“I’m Brazilian, and I have always loved Florianópolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil.”
