Bikini beauty Kelly Brook smiles again as she enjoys a sunshine break with Billy

Brunette bombshell Kelly Brook is smiling again as she hit the beach in the French West Indies resort of Saint-Barthelemy for a sunshine break with her fiancé Billy Zane.Kelly, who has been mourning the death of her father Kenneth, looked as if she had put her troubles behind her as she hung out on the beach and frolicked in the sea with actor Zane. The curvy star looked stunning in a black floral patterned bikini, as she wandered along the beach at the Caribbean resort which is famed as a haven for the rich and famous.But Kelly and Billy eschewed the trappings of celebrity, and looked much like any other couple as they lazed around on their blue and white striped towels while sunbathing on the beach. Speaking about her fiancé recently, Kelly revealed how lucky she feels to have her supportive fiancé Billy by her side.She said: "Billy is an amazing guy. He's charming and sexy. He can make me laugh and is really romantic."Kelly's bikini perfect figure has seen her launch her own swimwear and lingerie ranges. And now she has written her own style tome, Kelly Brook's book Life Style: How to Pin Down the Pin-Up Within You, to give women further inspiration on how to achieve a glamorous look.In the feel-good book she encourages women of all shapes and sizes to follow their own style and dress to their shape rather than be a slave to fashion.But also revealed her own fashion inspirations.She said: "I regularly look to the Tinseltown pin-ups of the 1950s when I'm putting my own look together, like Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Jayne Mansfield and Elizabeth Taylor, says Kelly."They oozed glamour from every pore, revelling in their curves, delighting in their femininity and enjoying being worshipped by virtually every man on the planet." The 28-year-old actress is enjoying a fresh start after she was forced to pull out of the popular BBC1 show Strictly Come Dancing following the death of her father Ken.At the time Kelly said she needed to be there and to be strong for her close-knit family. Immediately after his death, former Big Breakfast host Brook, 28, vowed to go on with the hit BBC1 ballroom dancing competition, as she said that is what her father would have wanted.The model and actress continued rehearsing but later the BBC announced her decision to quit the show because she had found it too difficult to continue.Kelly had been secretly hiding her sadness over her father's terminal illness while competing in the television competition.She was one of the favourites to win Strictly Come Dancing with professional dance partner Brendan Cole, alongside eventual winner Alesha Dixon and her partner Matthew Cutler.
