Every year during the Spring/Summer shows, swimwear brand Gottex shows some of the most water-unfriendly suits out there. They are, however, totally fine for sunbathing on the Riviera or lounging by your private pool. This season, shimmering blues and bright gemstone appliques ruled, but what truly stole the show was the appearances of Crystal Renn, "plus-size" model.

Joining Renn on the runway were Sessilee Lopez and Victoria's Secret supermodel Karolina Kurkova, who were suited up in the bikinis they kept off of Renn. Instead, Renn walked in three one-piece looks, with mighty high hair. Renn has recently been the topic of much fashion industry talk as, despite her plus-size classification, she's recently scored such coups as a Glamour cover, walking a Chanel show and doing a Chanel campaign.
