Christie's character is seen stripping down to her bikini, a white string two-piece, while also sporting matching heels as Chevy Chase's lead looks on.

"They say this [movie's] got legs," she wrote alongside her picture, and judging by Chevy's reaction in the shot, it definitely seems like it!

Christie posted a throwback to one of her most iconic scenes in National Lampoon's Vacation

The scene featured the supermodel's character, simply billed as "the Girl in the Red Ferrari," preparing to go skinny dipping at a hotel pool.

Eventually, she convinces Chevy's Clark Griswold to join her, but they are then interrupted by his family before anything can further develop, although his wife, played by Beverly D'Angelo, quickly forgives him.
