07 - Jean Jani
Playmate of the Month July 1957. Jean Jani (born October 31, 1931 in Dayton, Ohio) is an American model. She was <i>Playboy</i> 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 <i>Playboy</i> pictorial, but in actuality she was a reservations clerk with United Airlines when she was discovered. Gowland is quoted in <i>The Playmate Book</i> as saying that United fired Jani following her Playmate appearance.
In a newer edition of <i>The Playmate Book</i>, Jani says she had totally forgotten about her <i>Playboy</i> 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 <i>Playboy</i> fold by attending some convention events.
