Actress and Instagram star Elizabeth Hurley posted a somewhat wildly edited video clip to her Instagram account on Saturday, wearing a white bikini and a light turquoise robe as she walked around a beach with a view of the gorgeous blue ocean behind her. She’s seen walking, laughing, and posing while the opening to Childish Gambino’s (aka Donald Glover) song “Redbone” plays in the background.

Elizabeth Hurley filmed this video while at the Vakkaru Maldives beach resort, located on the Vakkaru Island Baa Atoll in the Republic of Maldives. The Maldives is a nation made up of almost 1,200 small islands in the Indian Ocean, about 450 miles from the southern tip of India. The Maldives are known for its plethora of resorts, with over about 130 of them overlooking the nation’s pristine beaches.

Elizabeth Hurley wasn’t just posting the video to show off her awesome vacation spot, however — she’s taking the opportunity to sell you swimwear! She took the opportunity to promote her own line of beach attire, drawing specific attention to the semitransparent turquoise robe — listed on her site as “The Antibes Robe.” She also appears to be wearing her brand’s Celestial Bikini, which features gold chains instead of a waistband and top band. 

This isn’t the first time that Elizabeth Hurley has taken to social media to promote her line of swimwear. In fact, she showed off that very same gold-chained bikini in January of this year and wore it again when advertising her brand’s Feather Robe in February.

Hurley became famous in the 1990s for her role in the spy movie parody Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery — a role she hilariously reprised for all of two minutes before self-destructing at the beginning of the sequel Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. She then went on to appear in Bedazzled as the Devil, then went on to play Morgan le Fay in Runaways, and Diana Payne in Gossip Girl. 

Elizabeth Hurley’s time as a superstar was somewhat short-lived, though she’s still regularly acting. Most recently, she’s had a trend of appearing in Christmas movies such as Christmas in Paradise and romantic comedies like Then Came You. She still branches out into other genres, however, since she appeared in the horror film The Piper last year and is set to star in the thriller Strictly Confidential, written by her son Damian Hurley, who boasts her ex-partner Hugh Grant as his godfather. 

Outside of acting and selling bikinis, Elizabeth Hurley has also made a point of using her celebrity status to promote multiple charities. She worked with the cosmetics company Estée Lauder to create an “Elizabeth Pink” lipstick whose proceeds are donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and she presented the 2003 Fashion Rocks event to help support The Prince’s Trust, a foundation that helps struggling young people get health and social care jobs. She also has been known to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation, along with the London-based charity City Veterans Network, which helps former members of the armed forces find employment.
