Top model Hana Jirickova stars in the "Splash Dance" cover story for Elle France's latest issue. The blonde beauty is captured beachside while posing in a wardrobe of 80s inspired swimwear staples.

Hana is lensed by fashion photographer Hans Feurer who works alongside the photoshoot's stylist Hortense Manga. The stylist dresses his model muse in body-hugging one-pieces that have been layered atop neon bikini tops and bottoms.

A play on 80s film classic "Flash Dance", the Elle France "Splash Dance" cover story marries the era's spandex aerobic attire with retro swimwear that is making a major comeback. Hair stylist Ward Stegerhoek creates Hana's chopped and beachy bob while makeup artist Itsuki gives the model a fresh-faced and bronzed look that is ready for summer.
