Others added: "Looking awesome," and: "You look even better now," while several simply posted rows of fire and heart emojis in response.

The Austin Powers star went on to form her own swimwear company, Elizabeth Hurley Beach, back in 2005 and often models her brand's beautiful designs on social media.

In an interview with Grazia magazine last year, the mum-of-one revealed why she chose to turn to swimwear design, explaining: "I wanted to create styles that make people look fantastic and feel great."

The star now models designs for her own swimwear brand 

She went on: "It was key to me to create a resort collection that would make a woman feel sexy and comfortable at any age."

It certainly seems to be working for the glamorous star, who has long been known as a fashion trend-setter.

She first shot to fame when she wore Versace's infamous 'safety pin' dress in 1994 at the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral, which she attended with her then-boyfriend, Hugh Grant.
