Hot celebrities are becoming almost as common in the City of Miami
as they are in LA or New York. And no celebrities are hotter then the models that choose to work, play and live here. Just recently, models from all over came to Miami during Super Bowl weekend to participate in various activities.
Annual bashes such as The Sports Illustrated Party, Hawaiian Tropic Party and Volleypalloza were just some of many events that brought Miami models
and others out on town. Models such as Naomi Campell, Heidi Klum and Alessandra Ambrosio, among others, have been spotted on Miami's Beaches and in South Beach night clubs
. Some of the more popular places for the models who visit Miami are Lummus Park Beach and \ Nikki Beach Club. Others such as male Miami model Gregg Avedon, call the city home and are proud to do so. Avedon has credited South Beach's thriving nightlife a new status in the world of fashion and arts as being a source of inspiration. This trend started back in the late 80's / early 90's and has continued to grow at a fast pace, hampered only briefly by the untimely death of Gianni Versace. Casa Casuarina, former Gianni Versace Mansion
on Ocean Drive, South Beach, is other preferred destination among Miami models
