With her girl-next-door sex appeal and charismatic charm, Melissa Boloña captures Beach Bunny’s heart as she is named the winner of their Model Search.

Melissa, who won the coveted title after being selected from a pool of over 20,000 submissions, joins the rank of other Beach Bunny Supermodels such as Sports Illustrated cover girls Kate Upton, Irina Shayk, Chrissy Teigen, Victoria’s Secret Angels Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Candice Swanepoel and Cameron Russell in addition to international sensations Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.

This summer, Melissa teams up with Beach Bunny campaign model Irina Shayk in Belize to shoot the brand’s upcoming collection with renowned photographer Yu Tsai. Along with shooting their campaign, Melissa will be amongst the swimwear elite in Miami and open Beach Bunny’s runway show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this July.

“I feel very fortunate to be working with two really outstanding individuals,” says Melissa. “Irina is beautiful and I admire how strong her career is, and Yu Tsai really has an eye and a vision to create beautiful artwork. As for Beach Bunny, they have a real talent for creating what woman want! Their bathing suits are sexy, fun, and comfortable—what more can you ask for?”

This golden beauty from New York is already getting her practice and proving very well that she is not camera shy. Just last month, millions of people from around the world were captivated by Melissa’s sultry gaze and blonde locks high above Times Square as she was featured in a billboard for Gents’ latest campaign. She also currently graces the pages of Latin Esquire and Flaunt magazine and was the 2013 Valentine’s Day Lovely Lady of the Day on Sports Illustrated’s website, which was released the same week as the infamous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

Beach Bunny CEO Angela Chittenden knew right away there was something special about Melissa. “I feel we have found such a rare combination of an All-American beauty combined with an extreme business sense, a college degree and a serious drive to succeed. With the modeling world being so competitive, I feel a woman must possess a strong and positive character in addition to beauty that will help them along the way. Melissa has all these qualities and we all know that beauty plus brains is a

With her new title and winning combination of looks and personality, it is safe to say the best is yet to come for Melissa.
