Stassie Karanikolaou gifted her 6.8 million Instagram followers the perfect Valentine’s Day present: a photo of herself in the tub, surrounded by rose petals. The steamy picture certainly turned the temperature up by several degrees.
In the Valentine’s Day upload, Stassie reclined in a white bathtub, showing off her every curve in a bright red bikini. She soaked amid crimson-colored flower petals that turned the water a festive pink shade.
Her bikini top was a straight bandeau style affair, one boasting thin straps and which flaunted a hint of cleavage. Her bikini bottoms were submerged in water, so fans could only see the tiniest glimpse of a string. Stassie flashed a whole lot of leg as well as the side of her curvaceous derriere. She also showcased her toned physique in the image. Her sun-kissed skin was adopted something of a red hue, in keeping with the romantic holiday theme.
She rested her head on the edge of the tub and stared at the camera with bedroom eyes. Stassie wore her blond locks in a wavy updo, her long bangs hanging down on either side of her face.
Her light brown brows were perfectly arched and shaped and framed her face. Her face was flushed — and seemingly edited to appear like she was blushing — and her blue eyes stood out brightly in comparison. She wore red blush on her cheekbones and lacquered her plump pout with a ruby-red lip.
She captioned the picture by wishing her fans a happy holiday, adding a rose emoji for effect.
The photo quickly racked up 247,000 likes, and more than 1,000 comments, from excited fans who loved Stassie’s Valentine’s Day look.
While some chose to express their feelings with flame and heart emoji, others used their words to share their adoration for the model and the image.
Some fans couldn’t believe their eyes.
“Why you had to take my soul like this??” one user asked rhetorically.
“OHMYGOD,” another commented in all caps.
Other followers had jokes.
“Tag yourself.. im the tub,” one fan wrote.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Stassie had been getting ready for Valentine’s Day long before February 14 rolled around.
Earlier this month, the model perhaps gave fans a hint of things to come when she posed in a Barbie pink bikini, looking very Malibu Barbie with her platinum hair done up in a high ponytail, complete with a matching bubblegum-pink scrunchie.
“Valentine’s day is around the corner,” she captioned the image, adding two pink hearts.
