Elizabeth Hurley unveiled her incredible figure once more while vacationing at a glitzy Indian resort.
The brunette beauty, 53, who happens to be a swimsuit designer, expertly modeled one of her dazzling creations while cooling down in a pool. The bikini, which comes from her swimwear brand Elizabeth Hurley Beach, featured sparkling crystals that glowed as the British model/actress happily lapped up the water.
Hurley is currently vacationing at Ananda in the Himalayas, a luxurious spa and wellness retreat — the perfect setting for her collection.
Just a day ago, Hurley modeled a plunging hot pink one-piece that accentuated her famous assets. The star completed the look with loose beachy waves, a sun-kissed tan and not much else.
It was during her getaway that Hurley took time to commemorate her look-alike son Damian’s birthday on social media.
“Happy 17th birthday to my heavenly @damianhurley1,” she captioned in one photo. “No one could have brought me more joy. You have made me a very proud mama.”
Earlier this month, Hurley declared to Red magazine for their latest issue that she is looking to find love on her own terms.
“It would be fantastic to fall in love with someone wonderful,” Hurley admitted, as reported by UK’s Daily Mail. “But I’ve really enjoyed the past couple of years and it’s made me realize how important it is to find someone who shares similar tastes. I think that’s because I’ve had some time to do entirely what I want to do.”
Hurley shared that while she has had great relationships with all of her exes, their breakups made her realize what she really wants in a partner. Her most famous relationship was with British actor Hugh Grant. The pair first met in 1987 and remained together until their amicable split in 2000.
In 2002, Hurley welcomed a son named Damian with American businessman Steve Bing — Grant, now 58, is her child’s godfather.
In 2007, she married Indian textile heir Arun Nayar but the couple divorced in 2011. Three months later, Hurley was engaged to Australian cricketer Shane Warne. However, the couple called it quits in 2013.
“All of my boyfriends, husbands and fiancés have been my best friends, so it’s a terrible gap they leave,” she explained. “I think that’s when you learn the importance of having other sources of comfort, fun and intimacy. You feel cozy with people that have been your best friends for 30 years, but occasionally you’ll meet someone who you click with — it’s important to keep yourself open to that.”
Yet Hurley said she isn’t in a rush to get involved with anyone. In fact, the star said she’s at her happiest from the comfort of home in the English countryside.
“I spend half the day on my laptop and then I attempt to have a life,” she said. “When I’m there I have a ponytail, wear UGG boots, put on some Nike track pants and I’m happy. When I’m home I cook or make jam – I’ve just started making marmalade – I love all that. I get so much joy from gardening. I’ve become obsessed with it. It’s the only time I switch off.”
Hurley also said she keeps busy by staying active, which has helped her not stress over getting older.
“I really believe in being active, but I don't do much set exercise,” said Hurley. “In the country, I walk a lot, run around a lot and do a lot of manual labor — I also love getting out with my chainsaw. I still have a contract with Estee Lauder, which is in its 24th year. Hats off to them for not disposing of women as they get older.”
Hurley has also enjoyed her most important role — that of mom.
“He is a joy,” Hurley gushed about Damian. “He has a year-and-a-half of school left, then it’s up to him; he’ll be a proper grown-up but with interfering mummy in the background. Since he was 13 we’ve always gone away every year to somewhere exotic, and this year we’re going on a yoga meditation retreat. I think it might be quite good for an angst-ridden teenager, and it might be good to find a way to switch off.”
Back in 2005, Hurley launched her Elizabeth Hurley Beach line, which she frequently models on social media.
“I decided to venture into beachwear not only because I’ve always been obsessed with vacation clothes, but also because it’s an area where women, regardless of shape or size, can either look amazing or really get it wrong,” she previously announced on the company’s website. “I wanted to develop resort collections, which make women feel fabulous at any age.”
