This truly amazing swimwear editorial for the Elle Ukraine June 2011 edition features supermodel Maria Melnik in several different sexy swimsuits. Maria is shot by photography legend Nikolay Biryukov against a rocky seaside background with a cloud filled summer sky shedding the perfect amount of shadow & light onto model’s beautiful body. The brunette model’s wet & wavy hair, sand toned makeup & tan skin truly bring the beachside-glamour theme home. I think that Maida Melnik would look at home on virtually any Southern California beach. It’s important to say that this swimsuit editorial was styled by Natalia Osadchaya and includes suits from Diane von Furstenberg, Herve Leger by Max Azria and Alexander McQueen. My absolute favorite suit from this editorial is the Herve Leger’s single piece bandage style suit. As you can see, this swimsuit has an eye-catching cutout around the navel and only a peek of ribcage.
