Don't miss the hottest beach and poolside styles for 2011 -- here, we bring you the best off the runway from the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011.

Last month's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2011 held in Miami saw taut bodies in tantalising swimwear take to the catwalk.

This sixth season of showings saw prominent designers from around the world, including names like Ed Hardy, True Religion and Trina Turk, showcase their talent and trends for the coming year over five days. Take a look!

We start off with this sultry black bikini from Aqua Di Lara's 'Qiss Qiss' collection -- gotta have the perfect bod to carry off this one!
