FROM THE ED­I­TOR-IN-CHIEF

Ocean Drive - - Contents -

Miami never ceases to amaze me, and i’m sure i’m not alone. Case in point: any­one who was in the Miami de­sign dis­trict last month when we shot our an­nual Women of in­flu­ence fea­ture, “Won­der Women,” got to watch as our pho­tog­ra­pher, cast, and crew posed, shim­mied, and shone through a full day of gor­geous fash­ion set against an im­pec­ca­ble back­drop. if you were one of the lucky shop­pers tak­ing a stroll, pos­ing for a selfie (true story!), or tak­ing fash­ion pho­tos with our very own woman of in­flu­ence Karolína Kurková stop­ping to give you point­ers or shout pos­i­tive af­fir­ma­tions at you, then you got to see the best of what Miami has to of­fer. Yes, only in Miami can you pose for a shot and have a world-fa­mous su­per­model walk by in the mid­dle of her own photo shoot.

after shooting Kurková’s fea­ture, as we headed down the es­ca­la­tors, we ran into none other than multi­grammy-win­ning mu­sic pro­ducer emilio es­te­fan tak­ing a meet­ing out­side his new restau­rant, es­te­fan Kitchen. i snapped a photo of the su­per pro­ducer and su­per­model along with leg­endary mu­sic pro­ducer rudy pérez and the con­duc­tor for the Miami sym­phony or­ches­tra, ed­uardo Mar­turet, which de­sign dis­trict vi­sion­ary and cre­ator Craig robins then re­posted on in­sta­gram, call­ing it “a Great Miami Mo­ment.” Not to men­tion it was blue skies and 80 de­grees.

Who bet­ter to an­chor this is­sue of Ocean Drive—a great Miami mo­ment in it­self—than an­other woman of in­flu­ence, Pretty Lit­tle Liars star shay Mitchell? after lead­ing the charge in one of the big­gest cult-fol­low­ing TV shows of our time, she’s ready to break out onto a new path, breath­ing new life into her sky­rock­et­ing ca­reer. and speak­ing of breath­ing, with this, our an­nual May/june dou­ble is­sue, we take a bit of a breather, too, un­til july. plenty of sun, ocean, and blue skies to soak up in the mean­time. en­joy the read.
