Elizabeth Hurley is currently on vacation in the Caribbean. So naturally, the Austin Powers alum took the opportunity to showcase the latest beachwear styles in the picturesque setting. The actress shared the photos in a series of posts on Instagram.
First, she posed in a striped bikini from her own swimwear line, Elizabeth Hurley Beach. With a messy ponytail and natural make-up, the outfit was paired with some very cool Fendi sunglasses. In the caption accompanying the image, she described the look as the perfect combo.
Her adoring fans showed Elizabeth Hurley loads of love on the social media site. “Gorgeous!!!” said one smitten fan as others simply shared heart emojis. Hurley’s long-time friend and make-up artist Sandy Linter simply added “Oh hello good evening” to the flood of comments.
A few days before Wednesday’s pool pic, the mom of one shared another sultry bikini picture. This time she was more carefully posed on the couch with tousled hair and tasteful makeup. Elizabeth Hurley’s outfit was paired with a gold cuff bracelet and a sarong wrap.
Elizabeth Hurley has been modeling her swimwear line on Instagram for some time now, after initially founding the company in the early 2000s. Speaking about her fashion line to The New York Times in July, the actress said she’s deliberately kept her business small, remembering how hard she had to work to make a buck. And when the shops closed in England during the lockdown, Hurley decided to step back from wholesaling. Most of her sales are now done online.
Regarding her bikini photos, she said, “I’m not 23. I don’t weigh 100 pounds. But it is nice that some people are open to seeing women of different ages looking happy and healthy. I’m delighted if I’m encouraging them.” Elizabeth Hurley might spend a lot of time on the beach. But it’s not just recreational.
The 56-year-old star is on the small island of Nevis in the Caribbean Sea to film a festive romantic comedy called Christmas in the Caribbean. The film is directed by Philippe Martinez from a script by Martinez and Nathalie Cox. The story follows Rachel (Elizabeth Hurley), a hopeless romantic who is jilted at the altar. Determined not to let her Caribbean honeymoon go to waste, Rachel and her two bridesmaids jet off to the islands, where love blossoms and she has to make a life choice.
Joining Elizabeth Hurley in the cast is Caroline Quentin, Nathalie Cox, Edoardo Costa, Hadar Cats, Downtown Julie Brown, and Rafael Martinez. The holiday-themed movie is produced by Highfield Grange Studios’ Alan Latham and MSR Media (via Variety).
Speaking to Hello Magazine about her new project, Elizabeth Hurley said she was excited about the film from the beginning. She added that an offer to shoot a movie in the Caribbean, after more than 18 months of lockdowns, was irresistible. The actress described Christmas in the Caribbean as a fun, lively antidote to all that misery.
While on the tropical island Elizabeth Hurley attended the premiere for another holiday movie – Father Christmas is Back. The film is directed by Mick Davis and Philippe Martinez and stars Hurley alongside Kelsey Grammer and John Cleese. Her son Damian and younger brother Michael accompanied her to the event.
