If you've seen the July 1994 cover of ESQUIRE magazine, you'll note that Christie Brinkley, er, wasn't quite prepared for her trip to the beach, and thus she used her reading material as something other than reading material. [Hence the inevitable caption, "Drop that book!". <shrug> What can you say, it's a men's magazine...] Here, we find Belle in a similar predicament. Fortunately, she's got her surfer-beau, Speedo-clad Beast looking after her. Will he get to her with that towel in time, just in case she really does do something so foolish as dropping that book?.....
