Carmen Electra-fies in sizzling bikini shots

Once known for posing in a red swimsuit on a beach in front of the cameras,  you would think Carmen Electra had moved on from her old Baywatch days.

Yet here she is wearing another red costume - albeit a much smaller one - in a sultry pose on Malibu beach in front of the, er, cameras.

Baywatch beauty: Carmen's bikini covers almost as much flesh as her bangles

On what is tipped to be the hottest day of the year so far, Carmen sends temperatures soaring even further with this knotted two-piece and a pair of red heels.

The 35-year-old former Playboy model has, in recent years, carved out a Hollywood career with parts in films such as the Scary Movie series, Starsky & Hutch and I Want Candy

It's been a while since Carmen's red swimsuit days...

...but this one's skimpier than her old Baywatch one-piece

But some could argue bikinis are what Carmen knows best.

Last August she was photographed wearing four of the two-piece costumes in just one afternoon  - complete with a range of accessories, including a Yorkshire terrier, a baby...and a group of her girlfriends for a group shot.
