Top 12 Fashion Forward Moments of the 2013 Holy Ship!! Pre-Party, Fort Lauderdale

Street fashion became overwhelmingly popular about eight years ago thanks to tasteful guys like the Sartorialist and Bill Cunningham. It's like, with all those rail-thin, gorgeous gals on bikes in tailored suits and high-heels, who needs the runway? 

But the thing that really steps a lit-up stripper heel right on the face of the beiges and low-key color accents of the Milan roadside fashion mavens is rave party style. Festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival and Ultra have shown us that underground fashion for people on drugs (thankfully) still reigns supreme with the world's youth! 

Last night, we attended a pre-party for another of those grand, colorful fests, Holy Ship!!, and found more than a few furry and glowing outfits and topless men with muscles on which to comment. Click onward, matey, for some pecs, sarcasm, and stripper poles.
