Looking radiant is our Miss July 2018, Valeria Lakhina. On set for her summer spread on the sun-drenched shores of Portugal, Valeria — or Lera, as her friends call her — is absolutely stunning. Gaze in awe as the photographer, Ana Dias, captures all of Lera’s vibrant features like her bright red hair, blue eyes, and sun-kissed skin. “I feel sexiest when I’m at the seaside — with freckles, a suntan, and droplets of saltwater in my hair,” she tells us with a smile. When she’s not modeling in exotic places like this, you can usually find Lera jamming to music — one of her absolute favorite things. “I try to begin my mornings with good music,” she says. “I’m a music lover! My playlist currently includes Florence and the Machine, Bishop Briggs, Kings of Leon, and Aretha Franklin!” Are you loving this summer inspired spread? Let Valeria know in the comments below, right here on Playboy Plus!
