While it’s been decades since the films were in theaters, many find it tough to separate Elizabeth Hurley from her role of Vanessa Kensington in the first two of Mike Myers’ Austin Powers films. But her work encompasses a lot more than just playing the woman who fell for the parody spy’s ridiculous catch phrases. Among other things, Hurley is an accomplished model, and when you see the sexy video she posted to social media, it won’t be tough to see why.

Elizabeth Hurley posted a video of herself to her official Instagram, posing for photos in a stunning black Versace dress with a revealing, plunging neckline. At 56, Hurley hardly looks her age. You can see the video below.

You may still think of her as Austin Powers’ shagalicious girlfriend, but Elizabeth Hurley has had a lot of memorable acting gigs since saying goodbye to Mike Myers’ prosthetic overbite. In 2000’s Bedazzled she offered Brendan Fraser no end of temptation as the Devil. In the penultimate season of The CW’s original iteration of Gossip Girl, she played wealthy businesswoman Diana Payne. She was Queen Helena in The Royals, and in Marvel’s Runaways she was the mystic villain Morgan le Fay.

More recently, Elizabeth Hurley helped ring in the holiday season across the pond. In the Netflix Christmas comedy Father Christmas Is Back, Hurley leads the cast as Joanna Christmas — one of four sisters left reeling when their estranged father shows up to celebrate the holidays for the first time in decades. Kelsey Grammer of Frasier fame plays the long-absent father. They’re joined by Monty Python veteran John Cleese, Nathalie Cox (Kingdom of Heaven), Taluah Riley (Westworld), and Kris Marshall (Love Actually).

While the flick is still waiting to be released, Elizabeth Hurley finished filming on the upcoming fantasy horror film The Piper last December. Hurley plays an American schoolteacher who — along with her daughter Amy played by Mia Jenkins (Hanna) — moves to Hamelin, Germany. While there, Amy begins to research the famous legend of Hamelin’s Pied Piper, and as she does both her and her mother begin experiencing strange dreams and hallucinations. The film is directed by Anthony Waller (An American Werewolf in Paris) and written by Waller and Duncan Kennedy (Deep Blue Sea).

Whenever Elizabeth Hurley shows up in theaters or on streaming services in The Piper, she might have a lot of competition, actually. Mining the Pied Piper legend for ideas seems like a popular notion lately. Earlier this year, Deadline reported Julian Sands (A Room with a View) and Charlotte Hope (Game of Thrones) had been cast in yet another fantasy horror film called The Piper — once again based on the Pied Piper story. This version of The Piper is directed by Erlingur Thoroddsen (Rift). Filming commenced in Bulgaria in June.

If things work out, regardless of revealing dresses or copycat pipers, Elizabeth Hurley may soon be a regular fixture on primetime TV. Hurley will be playing the titular lead of the CBS comedy pilot Welcome to Georgia. She plays a single mother whose grown daughter calls on her help in raising Georgia’s grandson. Hurley will be joined by Saturday Night Live alum Taran Killam and Hannah Simone (New Girl) as Georgia’s daughter Penelope.
