Miami Swim Week has brought big-name models and designers to South Florida for over a decade, but last weekend a different kind of fashion show was happening at the same time. It was the first edition of Miami Curves Week+, a two-day event giving fuller-figured women a chance to celebrate their bodies.

One year after her historic swim from Cuba to Key West, Diana Nyad is returning to both islands to celebrate.

When Nyad reached the beach in Key West last year, she says she was in a physical, mental and emotional daze. She didn't even have a chance to thank her team.

"I was just whisked off," Nyad said. "This is my chance, Monday in that very place, to say [thank you] to them directly, and cry with them."
