With her girl-next-door sex appeal and charismatic charm, Melissa Boloña captures Beach Bunny’s heart as she is named the winner of our Model Search and now joins the rank of other Beach Bunny Supermodels such as Kate Upton, Irina Shayk, Chrissy Teigen, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Candice Swanepoel and Cameron Russell.
This summer, Melissa will team up with Beach Bunny campaign model Irina Shayk in Belize to shoot the brand’s upcoming collection with renowned photographer Yu Tsai, and will be amongst the swimwear elite in Miami and open Beach Bunny’s runway show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week this July.
Just last month, millions of people from around the world were captivated by Melissa’s sultry gaze and blonde locks in Times Square as she is featured on 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.
In the past few months, Melissa has quickly become a social media phenomenon with her video Two Sides of Me which has reached 1.2 million views on YouTube and will also be making her acting debut this fall in a new TV Series, The Saint.
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 MUST in this industry! We can't wait to see how her career builds momentum in 2013!”
With her new title and winning combination of looks and personality, it is safe to say the best is yet to come for Melissa.
