As fans of Anne de Paula pack up the Christmas tree and take down their red and white Santa stockings from the fireplace mantel, it seems that the gorgeous Sports Illustrated swimsuit model can’t let go of the holidays. And her fans don’t mind one bit!

This Brazilian beauty stripped down to a racy red catsuit with a plunging bodice that revealed a string of buttons in a line down the front. But no one is likely noticing the buttons, considering just how much the model is showing off.

The 23-year-old gorgeous model resides in New York and her hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers love seeing her latest photos, whether they are from a recent photo shoot or of just her hanging out. This particular photo depicts Anne wearing white thigh-high stockings with festive red stripes around the top.

She’s sitting on the floor provocatively, leaning against the wall with her legs crossed at the ankles, a bit of her backside showing through. She’s crossed her arms at the wrists, pushing up her bosom. Her gorgeous dark brown hair falls off to the side in gentle waves, her head slightly tipped.

It’s no surprise that this particular Instagram post has received almost 8,000 likes. She wished her followers a happy holiday in this post.

“Hope you guys had a great Christmas day with your loved ones. 2019 is on its way and I cannot wait!!!” she wrote.

Her social media following grew even more after she was spotted dating Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid this fall. Not everyone knew who the up-and-comer was at his side, cheering him on at his games. The pair had been spied at many hotspots while courting, too. Her spectacular looks are eye-catching, which is why, at the age of 14, she was discovered by the Wilhelmina modeling agency and signed with them.

Her name became synonymous with Sports Illustrated after she did well in the magazine’s 2017 Swimsuit Model Search and has since posed in numerous shots for them. According to Wilhelmina, the Rio de Janeiro native stands 5’9″ and in her bikini-clad photos, she has considerably long and lanky legs. She poses in two other Instagram photos wearing this same holly jolly outfit.

In one, she’s sitting on her feet, posing sideways to the camera with her wavy hair cascading down her back. In the other, she’s posing saucily with her hands on her waist, her hip jutted out to the side. It’s no surprise that her fans and followers love this trio of photos.
