Model Bella Hadid shared some photos from the bikini of her 2023 on Instagram, wishing her followers a happy start to the new year. In the carousel of pics, Hadid flaunts her figure in a white string bikini, as she stands in a gorgeous clear water pool amongst some beautiful tropical flora. The bikini was cut with a halter neckline with triangular cups that mirrored the tiny string bottoms.
She had her hair down and it looked dampened by the water, as though she just took a quick dip. In a short video in the collection, she walked through the palm fronds along small tiled path like she was strutting a private cat walk. She had her arms wrapped around her body and was smiling warmly at her videographer.
“Happy néw year my sweets,” Hadid wrote to her followers. “pray only the best for you.”
It’s not certain who was filming Hadid, but she shared another collection of images of herself on a beach trip in which her boyfriend Marc Kalman is featured. In these pics, Hadid is wearing a different bikini in bright yellow and red, along with khaki shorts. Most of the photos appear to be paparazzi shots taken of the model as she attempts to ride her waterski around the ocean, but one is a mirror selfie that she took with Kalman in which he is also in his bathing clothes.
The white bikini made another appearance in a different carousel as Hadid got out of the water in a short video, and she wore it with a statement jewelry piece—the Monaco Choker from Frasier Sterling.
She’s wearing the necklace while sitting in her car as well, freshly blonde hair blowing in the wind, over an olive green bodysuit covered in a flower pattern. Hadid has not tagged where she’s vacationing, but it looks like a very special getaway.
