Immersing herself in the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week SWIM 2012 festivities, Kate Upton had a front row seat at the Caffe Swimwear show in Miami Beach, Florida on Saturday (July 16).
The 19-year-old Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue beauty mingled with the likes of TV personality Louise Roe and model Josh Slack while watching the nighttime catwalk display.
Miss Upton made the trip to the sunshine state for her own Friday night showcase, as she walked the runway for Beach Bunny (see video above) - with whom she happened to design her very own swimsuit.
Recently asked about her first try as a designer, Kate replied, "When Beach Bunny asked me to design a swimsuit, I was so excited. Because obviously I model swimsuits all the time and to be able to design one just for me was really exciting. I'm going to have two different designs and I wanted one to be more glamorous and more like a party swimsuit and the other to be a beach bum flirty girl swimsuit. The more glamorous one is going to be at Miami Swim Week, on the runway to have a little taste of it. I'm really excited about it...It's going to come in three colors, so you can pick whatever. It'll be white, black and fuchsia."
