Her black swimsuit hugged her tightly and she opted to push the middle zipper down to show off her figure. Looking relaxed while sitting on a step, her legs were on full display as she smiled brightly.
The Aussie star kept her makeup light, accessorising with a pair of chunky black sunglasses and colourful beaded bracelets.
She held a cream wide-brimmed hat with a rope detail and encouraged her fans to ‘find joy’, quoting famous Vietnamese monk Thích Nhất Hạnh, also known as the ‘father of mindfulness’.
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. Thích Nhất Hạnh…thank you Gilles Bensimon for making me smile today!” she wrote in the caption.
Her celebrity pals showered the Aussie model with praise, with Jennifer Aniston and Elizabeth Hurley among those who liked the post.
“Hottie as always,” wrote bikini designer and influencer Melissa Odabash.
“Hello beautiful,” added model Kara Young, while singer Shab said she looked “gorgeous”.
Elle’s picture proved to be extremely popular, racking up over 32,000 likes and hundreds of comments. Fans couldn’t help but fawn over how young the model looked for her age.
“You are absolutely timeless and aging backwards! What is this crazy voo doo?!” one asked.
“You have been stunning all your life Ms THE BODY,” wrote another, referencing Elle’s ‘The Body’ nickname from the ‘80s and ‘90s.
“Thirty-five years later, my insanely gorgeous teenage crush is still KILLIN’ it with her timeless beauty!” a third chimed in.
“That’s a perfect quote for that picture! Beautiful as ever, but that beauty radiates from within, through that smile!” another gushed.
