Elizabeth Hurley had a very sexy Christmas this year.
The 53-year-old took to Instagram to share a holiday picture of herself wearing a velvet dress, one that showed off her amazing figure. The picture was a big hit with her more than 1.1 million followers, with many of them sharing supportive messages for the actress.
"You get more beautiful as the years go by!" one admirer wrote.
"Simply stunning," another commented.
The post may have served a dual purpose for the actress turned fashion maven. In her Instagram Story, Hurley advertised a winter sale at her swimwear company, trying to drum up a bit of offseason sales. Hurley is normally sharing photos of herself modeling the bikini line, showing off her amazing physique while raising the profile of her Elizabeth Hurley Beach line.
As Hollywood Life noted, the work often has Hurley traveling to far-flung locations for fashion shoots. A few weeks ago, she shared some pictures from a sun-soaked trip to the Maldives, where she wore a tiny blue bikini and later sunbathed in a white, strapless bikini.
But even in the tropical climate, Hurley couldn't help but think of the holidays ahead.
"Dreaming of a hot Christmas…." she wrote in the caption from one of the bikini shots.
