MIAMI — Miami Beach has become a tale of two swim cities — all-business trade show by day and glitzy blowout by night, for media, partyers and occasional celebrities, and any buyer with the stamina for round-the-clock swimwear.
Both shows, SwimShow 2009 at the Miami Convention Center from July 19 to 22 and Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim, in tents at the Raleigh Hotel from July 18 to 21, offered a first look at cruise 2009 swimwear from over 400 lines.

"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
