Katie Austin is as happy as could be in glamorous new photos shared on social media.

On Monday, May 20, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model shared behind-the-scenes photos from the 60th anniversary party honoring the brand and its latest issue, putting her eye-catching ensemble on full display as she reflected on her career.

Austin, 30, rocked a sheer black maxi dress adorned with countless rhinestones from head to toe for the celebratory event. The flirty ensemble put her abs–and other assets–on full display and included a pair of metallic silver strappy sandals.

She completed the look with minimal glam, stepping out with her hair in a high bun and a rosy lip color.

The 10 photos she uploaded to the picture-sharing platform documented the May 18 event from her perspective, from getting ready to posing for photographers outside the event at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and, of course, some snaps from her experience inside alongside fellow attendees.

Accompanying the pics was a sweet statement shared in the caption. "If you told teenage me I’d be a 4th year returning @si_swimsuit model and was on stage with @neyo singing miss independent I would not believe you!!!!" she wrote.

Her followers were just as excited about the images, sharing their joy in the comments.

"Give me a second to pick my jaw up off the floor," one Instagram user exclaimed.

"Glistening!!! & so stunning!!" another declared.

"Iconic," someone else simply wrote, while a fourth said, "This look is everything!!!!!"

Austin's barely-there look appears to be part of a larger trend SI Swim models are clinging too, as Brooks Nader also arrived at one of the magazine's launch parties wearing a gown that left little to the imagination.
