Catherine Zeta Jones looked absolutely stunning an new Instagram photograph she shared with fans on Tuesday, 31 January - as she lay on a bed and wrapped herself in white lace. Looking demure and bride-like, the Welsh actress was evidently having a textile moment as she shared with fans that lace was one of her favourite fabrics and asked them what materials they most cared for.

The photograph is one of a string of pictures Michael Douglas’ wife has been sharing with fans recently, detailing all parts of her life. A few days ago the Darling Buds of May star revealed her bartering skills as she took an arty black-and-white shot of herself looking sultry in a pair of vintage Dior sunglasses and revealed she had knocked the vendor down $5 in her purchasing. “Vintage #Dior. $40 but I got him down to $35,” the cheeky mum-of-two captioned the snap. “I’d love to see your favorite vintage pieces. Share them using #CZJVintage. #selfiesaturday,” she added.

The movie star’s fans were quick to take up their idol’s selfie challenge and many chimed in with messages of admiration for her flawless photograph. “You totally rock your vintage dior shades,” gushed one admirer. “What an excellent bargain,” added another. “I love a good bargain myself.”

Earlier this year, Catherine shared another photograph, this time showcasing how quickly her 13-year-old daughter Carys was growing up, and how much she already looks like her glamorous mum. In the picture, which starred both Carys and her older brother Dylan, the kids were caught giggling together as they lay in the sun together clearly finding something very funny. Carys is the spitting image of her stunning mother in the photograph as she throws her head back in a giggle, her eyes behind a pair of sunglasses, wearing a plain black bikini.

"When you're smiling, when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you.”

"When you're smiling, when you're smiling, the whole world smiles with you,” Catherine captioned the sweet family photo. And it seems like the 47-year-old actress and her husband Michael, 72, have never been happier. Following a brief split back in 2013, the pair seem to be enjoying every moment of being parents to their two teenage children.

Michael spoke about the secret of maintaining their long-term relationship while attending an awards event earlier last year. "I think it's just moment to moment," the star told reporters. "Catherine reminds me, I like to say sometimes, we all make more effort with strangers than we do to the people closest to us."
