Based on the images, we have to agree with the LAT's All the Rage that "In a battle of Beach Bunny versus D’Amore, I’d have to say D’Amore takes the prize for cute swimsuits." The blog reports D'Amore by Marceau designer Caroline D'Amore (the "model, DJ and pizza parlor heiress") wasn't at her own show: "She is stuck on an East Coast set where she’s filming a movie with her pal Rumer Willis. That adds actress and swimsuit designer and two more slashes to her growing list of career titles." As for the collection: "the suits were actually really cute. A lot of creative one-piece styles with side ruching and bold '80s patterns. The best group was the snake print metallic suits that looked well-made and figure flattering."
