A break from castings calls for a trip to Miami hotspot, Malibu Beach Farm. Their cocktails are to die for!

Meanwhile back at the W, castings were in full swing! We're so inspired by the ladies in this room who weren't afraid to follow their dreams.

After castings, it's a mad dash to the Paraiso and Cabana runway shows. First up: Mikoh! This show was full of barely-there bikinis, and we definitely didnt hate it.

And we're off! Next up is the Havana Nights iShine365 runway show. SI Swimsuit rookie, Georgia Gibbs, looks too cute to handle backstage with her maracas.

Bonus: All eyes were on Heidi Klum at the Ocean Drive 25th Anniversary Party on Thursday night. This SI Swimsuit legend looked radiant on the red carpet as she promoted her new collection of Heidi Klum Swim and celebrated her 8th Ocean Drive cover.
