Ocean Drive’s November issue highlights the must-follows, from beauty, fashion, design and entrepreneurship

MIAMI, FL- NOV 1 - Today the editors of Ocean Drive, part of Modern Luxury Media, the nation's largest luxury media company, release The Influencers Issue, putting a spotlight on the role influencers play in our current culture, and celebrating the icons who are making an impact on the cultural zeitgeist.

In our current climate of digital reign, the term “influencer” is often associated solely with social media. However, this concept predates the digital age, beginning with some of the most iconic figures in history, ranging from pop culture to politics. Within the pages of our annual Influencers Issue, the editors at Ocean Drive celebrate the mavens who are impacting Miami’s cultural scene. This includes sitting down with six Miami influencers in the exclusive feature “Digital Dynamos,” where they provide an inside look into the people, places and trends that may not be on your radar.

The power of influence is pervading across multiple industries in a way that cannot be stopped,” said Paige Mastandrea, Editor in Chief of Ocean Drive. “Our annual Influencers Issue pays homage to the icons who are paving the way but we also hope it provides some inspiration to our readers, to elevate their approaches to influence in their own daily lives.”

It should be no surprise that Ocean Drive asked one Enrique Iglesias, one of the most beloved influencers, to be gracing the cover of this annual issue. Iglesias’ global influence on Latin culture and music is unrivaled. He not only managed to seamlessly cross genres with his hit bilingual tracks for decades, but he set the stage for generations of new artists to follow in his footsteps. Iglesias sat down with Mastandrea to discuss the upcoming launch of his first studio album since 2014 entitled Final Vol 1, his return to the stage, how the digital age is impacting the music industry and how he continues to drive culture.

Also in the issue, Ocean Drive editors reveal some of the most scroll-stopping, Instagram-worthy locations in Miami that are a fool-proof backdrop to up your feed game.

The Influencers Issue is available now to subscribers. Read the cover story and subscribe to the digital edition to explore more stories.
