Anne de Paula is giving her Instagram fans something to start them off on the right foot this week. On Monday, October 21, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took to the popular social media app to post a sweltering image. Her killer figure and modeling skills showcased in the photo likely sent temperatures soaring.
In the photo, the Brazilian bombshell is down in the sand by the water as she strikes a sexy pose in a gorgeous beach scene. De Paula is rocking an olive green one-piece monokini that consists of a classic triangle top with thin straps that go around her neck. The suit also features string bottoms that tie up on the sides, sitting low on her frame. The top and bottom of her monokini then connect via a series of interesting straps that cross her torso both horizontally and vertically, creating a mishmash effect of textures.
De Paula is sitting in the shallow waters of the sea with one leg stretched forward and the other bent in a pose that further highlights the curves of her body. In addition, she is taking one arm to her head as she supports her torso up by resting her palm in the sand. According to the tag she included with her post, the snap was captured by the Los Angeles-based photographer Holly Parker.
The swimsuit model is tilting her head back with her eyes closed and lips parted in a way that is both contemplative and sexy. De Paula’s dark brown hair is swept over to the side and styled down in natural waves that cascade back against the rock behind her. While it is hard to see her makeup clearly, she appears to be wearing a dark eye shadow that gives her eyes some depth.
As of the time of this writing, the photo — which de Paula shared with her 249,000 Instagram followers — garnered about 10,000 likes in under a day since going live. The same time period also brought in more than 70 comments to the post.
Users of the social media platform who are fans of the Brazilian stunner took to the comments section to praise her beauty and compliment the overall aesthetics of the photo.
“My mermaid princess pea,” one user raved.
“Beautiful,” chimed in another fan, trailing the words with a blue heart emoji.
“Gorgeous Babe!” yet a third user added, including a red heart and a heart eyes emoji to the message.
