NEW YORK — Styled to look like they stepped off the set of Starz’s “Magic City,” a series set in Miami in 1959, give or take a few years, eight women and two men will strut their vintage stuff in Times Square on Wednesday to promote the show’s second season, which begins Friday.
The fashion show at Duffy Square, between 45th and 47th Streets, Broadway and Seventh Avenue, will begin at 10 a.m. and will be repeated at least six times throughout the day. The beachwear hints at languid days sipping mojitos by the pool at the Deauville Hotel, where exterior shots of the show are filmed. In the series, the hotel is called Miramar Playa and is owned by Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who sold his soul to the mob for a loan. “Magic City” was created by Mitch Glazer and stars Danny Huston as mobster Ben Diamond, Jessica Marais as his wife, Lily, and Olga Kurylenko as Ike’s wife, Vera.
