This swim editorial for the Elle Ukraine June 2011 edition stars model Maria Melnik in a variety of smokin' swimwear. She's captured by photographer Nikolay Biryukov against a rocky beachside backdrop with a cloud-filled summer sky shedding just the right amount of light and shadow onto her curves.

The Elle Ukraine June 2011 swimwear editorial was styled by Natalia Osadchaya and features pieces from Herve Leger by Max Azria, Alexander McQueen and Diane von Furstenberg. My favorite swimsuit from the editorial is the bandage-style one-piece swimsuit by Herve Leger; it features a cutout around the navel and just a peek of ribcage.

Maria Melnik's wavy, wet hair, tan skin and sand-toned makeup really bring the beach-chic theme home. The brunette model would look at home on any Southern California beach. Stats for Rocky Swimwear Editorials Trending: Older & Warm
