Sports Illustrated‘s curviest model, Hunter McGrady, showed off her glam style in the bathtub of her home in a new Instagram share. The stunner posed for the camera and looked lovely while dripping in pearls and flaunting full, red lips.

Hunter is breathtaking in the series of two snaps. She noted the images were part of the bathtub challenge, where social media users sit in tubs to call out SeaWorld for imprisoning animals for life in an environment that feels just as confining.

The model is wearing several strands of long pearls, which add a romantic touch to her gorgeous ensemble. A long, nude-colored beaded dress adorns Hunter’s curves, the garment filling the tub and spilling out over the side. She shared in the caption of the photo that she had the dress but never wore it.

The dress has wide straps, which land squarely between her collarbone and shoulder blades. The top is full-coverage, with a light taupe material that has a delicate overlay of silver beading that gives it shimmer and style perfect for a formal event. Or, in Hunter’s case, sitting in her bathtub drinking red wine.

The model went for an Old Hollywood glamorous style in the snaps. She is wearing a full makeup application, including dramatic red lipstick. On her eyes are black sunglasses, and her long blond hair is styled into a cute topknot for the pic.

Body wash but make it luxe! #ad I’ve been all about self-care since being home and it’s been so nice to do extra things to make me feel better. I had chatted about these products last week in my stories and got a lot of questions about them! I’ve been upping my shower game and using @olay Skin care inspired Cleansing and Nourishing body wash with Vitamin B3 complex and hyaluronic acid as well as my favorite new add on, the rinse off body conditioner with B3 and Shea Butter! As someone who has extremely dry skin both face and body, these two have been a game changer for me in my daily routine. I actually asked about what some of your favorite washes were a while back and a ton of you recommended these to me as well! Both products are available online from @walmart What are some things you’re doing for self care right now? I wanna know ❤️ #Olaypartner

In the second shot, Hunter is leaning seductively over the side of the bathtub. Here you can see the delicate beading on the straps of her gown. Each line of stones ends with a gorgeous rhinestone at its bottom. The model’s pearl necklace falls between her breasts as she holds onto the side of the bath with her left arm, her right hand on her cheek. Hunter is gazing directly into the camera in the style of a silver screen siren of yesteryear.
