Jean Jani- Miss July 1957

In this post we honor and remember Miss July 1957 Jean Jani. When Jean was discovered, and given the chance to appear in Playboy Magazine. Jean was working for United Airlines. Given my love of travel and flying. Jean had to appear on this classic hall of fame blog. For the all time best ladies of Playboy. I'm sure Jean also did a great job for United Airlines! Enjoy Jean's spectacular Playboy photos!

Jean Jani (born October 31, 1931 in Dayton, Ohio) is an American model. She was Playboy magazine's Playmate of the Month for the July 1957 issue. Her centerfold was photographed by Peter Gowland.

Jani was presented as a flight attendant in her Playboy pictorial, but in actuality she was a reservations clerk with United Airlines when she was discovered. Gowland is quoted in The Playmate Book as saying that United fired Jani following her Playmate appearance.

In a newer edition of The Playmate Book, Jani says she had totally forgotten about her Playboy work until her grown daughter presented her with a copy of the book's first edition, complete with pictures of herself. Since then, Jani has returned to the Playboy fold by attending some convention events.
