In case you didn’t already know, there are multiple international iterations of Fashion Week. Twice a year, runways circumvent the globe from New York to London to Milan to Paris, showcasing all the best and brightest that the world’s design minds have to offer. There is also a Fashion Week for swimwear, and it takes place in (DUH) Miami. Granted, you know, it’s not entirely the same as the Anna Wintour-trodden hallowed catwalks of NYFW (Miami Swim Week, instead welcomes Kardashians and our very own glass bikini-clad Kristin Cavallari with open arms), the 5-day long event draws in its own special league of front row fixtures. Most notably this year? Retired American Hall of Fame NBA player Dennis Rodman. And that’s not just because he’s a basketball legend, or because he was the key to VICE’s entry into North Korea, or because he’s the only dude whose lifetime total of hairstyles might rival (or even eclipse) Nicki Minaj’s either. While we weren’t there ourselves, we peeped the photos from the Anna Kosturova/Beach Riot/Lolli Swim/Manglar/Indah show which he attended on Monday, July 22, and it looks like The Worm had a certifiable BLAAAAST.

If you’re all, “Uhhhh I came here for Justin Bieber news. Why are you yammering on about this pierced-up sports dude who wore track pants with a suit vest to a fashion show? UNSUBSCRIBE,” this is worth talking about for a few reasons. For one, Justin Bieber also likes basketball, so maybe this will help you out with backstage small talk should you ever be chosen as his highly coveted “One Less Lonely Girl.” For two, Fashion Week is kinda sorta swimming in shade, so seeing anyone, let alone Dennis FREAKING Rodman, brimming with this kind of uncontainable positivity at a fashion event is refreshing on about a bazillion levels. For three, the juxtaposition of D and swimwear obviously reminds us of that one time he and Cindy Crawford modeled bathing suits on House of Style. In honor of the happy fruit salad of meaning above and the beautiful unicorn that is this legendary Chicago Bulls forward, we present to you: the 10 best photos of Dennis Rodman from the Miami Swim Week front row (PLUS, that vintage House of Style clip). Enjoy!
