We're craving the warmth of summer and the sights of bad girls in bikinis, so we're paying tribute to the gorgeous Elease Donovan today.

Elease is one of those women who wear many different hats and prove themselves to be pretty formidable in a lot of different fields. She's a model, a reality TV star, a fashion designer and a businesswoman. And in our humble opinion, she's crushed it in each of these different aspects of her life.

Her claim to fame came when she starred in Oxygen's reality show, The Bad Girls Club, coming in during the eighth season. She ended up clashing with many of the other castmates, most notably Camilla Poindexter and the Victor twins. She also starred in a spin-off to the series called Bad Girls All-Star Battle, coming in during the second season but getting eliminated in episode 7. Still, all of this was enough to get the public acquainted with her, which was perfect for when she launched her own swimwear company called Elease Donovan Swimwear. The name is simple and it carries her brand, making it one smart move.

To see her model her creations is quite a sight too, considering the fact that she looks damn good in anything she wears. We might as well dub her the "Mistress of the Midriff," too, because she always seems to wear a stylish outfit that shows off her abs. We're pretty much smitten.
