Aussie supermodel Elle Macpherson has lived up to her nickname of The Body, more than 30 years after the term was coined, sharing a sizzling swimsuit snap that left little to the imagination.

The former supermodel posed up a storm in snaps shared to her Instagram stories on Monday.

Clad in a tiny string bikini in khaki, the mum of two looked hardly a day over 30 as she showed off her slim, toned physique in the barely-there swimsuit.

Her long blonde hair left untamed and flowing, the model also left her face bare, showing off her glowing skin.


The star was wearing a bikini from sustainable fashion brand Abysse Official. The string duo costs AUD$130 apiece for the top and bottom.

Pictured from behind the two-piece is shown to be very risqué indeed, with a very cheeky cut on display.

The bikini is described on the official website as inspired by the 80’s, an appropriate choice by one of the biggest supermodels of that decade.

Still sporting the tag Elle was clearly enjoying a brand new purchase from the brand, and looked delighted with the flattering fit on her jaw-dropping frame.

Now 56, Elle has never shied away from putting her famous body front and centre, regularly sharing swimsuit snaps with her 535k followers on Instagram.

In one post the star showed off her frame in a silver bikini and baggy jeans to the delight of her fans.

“You’re like a fine bottle of wine,” one wrote.

“Forever a babe !!!!” another agreed.

“This is why she's The Body!” a third concurred.

It’s not the first time a celebrity has turned heads with an impossible-seeming swimsuit snap.

Last week Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi celebrated her 50th birthday with an age-defiant declaration that ‘50 is the new 30’ and it seems her fans couldn’t agree more.
