Modelinia Hits the Beach With Nina Agdal

It’s been cold and dreary in New York all this week, but not even a little rain could keep us from hitting the beach with Nina Agdal on Monday night.

Making our way across town to the indoor sand beaches at the Chelsea Piers in New York, we joined the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl and NBA player Chandler Parsons of the Houston Rockets at Op‘s ”Dunks for Donation” charity event, benefiting Sustainable Surf.  Despite the early April showers outside, the Danish beauty was more than happy to get into the summer-beach spirit as she flaunted her flawless figure in a colorful cutout one-piece Op suit and mico-mini athletic shorts.  Along with Parsons, a fellow Op brand ambassador, Nina had fun shooting hoops and practicing her dunk (with the help of the pro of course), along with discussing their March Madness picks and flipping through her stunning SI Swimsuit shots.

While taking us through Op’s new spring/summer ’14 collection, Nina also let us in on her personal swimsuit style and the trends she’ll be wearing this season.

Marking the kick-off to what is now officially known as “festival season,” the annual Ultra Music Festival returned to Miami this weekend with more performers, DJs and models than ever before!

After making a splash at the shows last year, Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes returned to the scene on Sunday to cheer on her DJ husband Sunnery James, who took to the stage that afternoon.  While hanging out in the VIP stands, the expecting model kept cool in a paisley print kaftan, orange pool sliders and a leopard print crossbody bag.  Though there was little sign of the Dutch beauty’s new baby bump, there was no mistaking her pregnancy glow from behind her Ray-Bans.  As you might recall it was just two weeks ago that, Doutzen announced via Instagram that she will be having a girl, posting a make-up free selfie, with the caption: “Almost 6 months pregnant with a a girl #happy.”
