Elizabeth proudly models her line on Instagram

The star recently spoke about her business and how it had been affected by the pandemic, telling The New York Times: "I've deliberately kept that business small, remembering how hard I had to work to make a buck.

"When the shops closed in England during lockdown, I stepped back from wholesaling. Now, most of the business is online."

Of how her Instagram followers have reacted to her swimsuit posts, she added: "I'm not 23. I don't weigh 100 pounds. But it is nice that some people are open to seeing women of different ages looking happy and healthy. I'm delighted if I'm encouraging them."

The 19-year-old recently shared a stunning image of his mum and paid her the ultimate compliment.

"Unfair battle - everyone else might as well go home @elizabethhurley1. No one does it like mama. THE BEST missing you Xx," he wrote on his account.

The picture showed the 56-year-old sitting on some stairs whilst showing off her endless legs in a stunning strapless blue gown.
