She’s the iconic Sports Illustrated cover-girl who is enjoying a Christmas getaway in the Bahamas with her family.
And Elle Macpherson, 53, went back to her bikini model roots on Thursday, taking to Instagram to post a sizzling snap of herself taking a dip in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean.
Standing in the thigh-high tide, the glamazon showed off her bronzed body, taut tummy and slender legs for the selfie-style snap.

Donning a patterned orange string bikini by Brazilian designer Lenny Niemeyer, the model promoted her alkalising Super-Elixir, posting she’ll be going on a ‘blitz,’ in the caption.
‘@superelixir blitz for the next few days after Christmas,’ the model wrote.
The image provoked an immediate reaction by fans,’Still the hottest!!!’ while another added,’Looking a tad fabulous.’
The supermodel, who has been at the top of her game for decades, regularly posts images of herself showing off her gym-honed physique
It comes after the supermodel caused confusion when she appeared to delete an Instagram snap she shared of her ex-partner and longtime friend Arpad Busson on Boxing Day.
On Tuesday, the 53-year-old Australian model had uploaded an image of her spending time with Arpad, 54, over Christmas.
Back on December 14 the beauty pulled the same move, but on that occasion the image was of Jeff Soffer, following reports the pair had split.

That image was a black-and-white photo of Florida-based hotel heir Jeff and her two sons Flynn, 19 and Aurelius, 14.
‘Happy birthday @jeffsoffer, love,’ she wrote under the simple but candid black and white picture.
It no longer appears on her Instagram feed, although the exact date it was removed is unknown, as is the reason for its removal.
In the latest disappearing act, Frenchman Arpad – the father of her two kids – was featured in a black-and-white image on her Instagram account on Tuesday.
Deleted: This image, uploaded Boxing Day, showed Elle spending time with Arpad, captioned: Thankyou for a magical Christmas , love you *love heart emoji*’
Sporting a beard and a Santa hat, he was pictured close-up, propping himself up on his shoulder and wearing a big smile.
Also tagging their eldest son Flynn, Elle wrote: ‘Thankyou for a magical Christmas, love you *love heart emoji*’.
By Wednesday evening, the image no longer appeared on the beauty’s Instagram account.
A second image of Arpad from that day, in which he was pictured at the beach with Flynn and Aurelius, with Elle presumably behind the camera, remains uploaded.

‘Christmas Swim,’ the model wrote, adding the hashtag ‘family.’
Multiple reports in June seemed to confirm Elle had finalised a divorce with Jeff after four-years of marriage.
‘Elle is relieved they’re divorcing – the truth is they’ve been leading virtually separate lives for months,’ a source reportedly told Woman’s Day at the time.

The publication also claimed Elle was set to keep their $26 million mansion as well as earn an extra $53 million in cash in the alleged divorce.
Neither Elle nor Jeff has ever publicly commented on the claims.
