CoverErika Eleniak photographed by Stephen Wayda
Looking radical in her lifeguard suit, Baywatchable Erika Eleniak returns to grace our pages and show off her tan lines. She sizzled our centerfold as Miss July 1989, and now she's hotter than ever. Our cover was produced by West Coast Photo Editor Marilyn Grabowski, styled by Jennifer Smith-Ashley and shot by Contributing Photographer Stephen Wayda. Make-up and hair are by Tami Morris. Armed but not dangerous, our Rabbit is ready for action.
