She made headlines late last year with a racy topless Instagram post but Lara Bingle has gone one step further with her latest snap.

A day after appearing in court for driving offences, the blonde bombshell gave her social media followers more than they bargained for by sharing an image of her seemingly posing nude on the beach.

Though the photo was captured from a distance, Bingle can be seen covering her chest with her bronzed arms and crossing her legs, keeping her dignity under wraps as she reclines by the water's edge.

Fans of the 26-year-old were quick to guess the snap was taken by boyfriend Sam Worthington, while others branded Bingle a poor role model for the apparent showcase of public nudity.

Yesterday the model presented a more sombre front as she appeared in a Sydney court on charges of driving while her license was cancelled.

Clad in head-to-toe black, Bingle was accompanied by Rockingham-raised Worthington and both were wearing the same bands on their wedding fingers that recently sparked speculation the duo had married in secret.

Bingle is next set to appear in court on April 18 when the magistrate will decide on her punishment.
