Elle Macpherson shared a sizzling throwback bikini photo with her Instagram fans over the weekend as she reflected on her impressive 40-year career as a model, while also letting her followers in on one of her biggest beauty secrets. The now-55-year-old beauty kicked things off with a seriously hot photo of herself in a tiny black bikini during a professional shoot that appeared to take place a few years ago.
The sizzling shot showed the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model as she made it very clear why she gained the infamous nickname of “the body.” Her flawless figure was on full show in the skimpy two-piece that didn’t leave very much to the imagination.
Elle leaned back onto a tree truck for the shoot after rolling down her already pretty tiny bikini bottoms.
Her black briefs sat dangerously low on her hips to put her long, toned torso on full display for the camera, while she rocked a plunging triangle-style bikini top with thin straps that tied around her neck and her back.
The beauty put her right hand up on the tree trunk as she leaned back and looked over to her left. Her long hair was swept to the side and left to flow down in the breeze.

Strength in nature … after nearly 40 years in front of the camera , I’ve realized the most important thing is being well on the inside- body, mind, emotions and spirit.. and the beautiful bi – product is that this is often reflected on the outside. As time goes on I have experienced increasingly the benefits of natural remedies and solutions. @welleco, we create quality clean nutritional powders, an evolution of the multivitamin , leading the wellness industry , that are simple to integrate into people’s lives , and help people effectively with balancing inner and outer wellness and ultimate beauty . I also love @sheilamsperez manual lymphatic drainage to help keep my body clear of toxins – I call her lady torturer – but so well worth the effort. ( see before and after ). I show this , not because it’s about having a flat stomach , although we all like this – I show because it’s a visible demonstration of how a healthy lymph system can effect the body – the stomach is a good indiction , but the true clearing is on the inside throughout the whole body.
The throwback bikini photo was actually the first of four photos contained in the January 18 upload from the supermodel and actress as she shared a lengthy message revealing how she stays looking so unbelievably flawless in her mid-50s.
In the caption, Elle admitted that she’d learned over her lengthy career that it’s most important to take care of her “body, mind, emotions and spirit.” She told fans that when she’s healthy in all of those areas of her life, the results show on the outside.
She then shared that she’s a big fan of manual lymphatic drainage via the Sheila Perez Method. She joked that she often refers to Sheila as “lady torturer.”
The former Friends guest star included a before photo and an after photo showing the results of the method, and she told fans that she believed it was a “visible demonstration of how a healthy lymph system can [affect] the body.”
Many fans flocked to the comments section after seeing Elle’s latest upload, with many heaping praise on the star for her bikini body while others shared their thoughts on her pretty unique beauty secret.
“What a woman,” one fan wrote with two red heart emoji.
Another impressed social media user called the Australian beauty the “Most beautiful woman of all time.”
“Wow! Love your take in life and your inner and outer beauty!” a third person commented.
But it’s not just throwback bikini shots Elle shares with her followers on social media.
