Elizabeth Hurley has shared photos of her “first bikini shoot ever,” one that came as the 55-year-old fronted Vogue back in 1998. Posting for her 2 million Instagram followers this weekend, the “Austin Powers” actress and model got honest about being a bundle of nerves as she was photographed for the iconic magazine, with the shots stunning fans as they told her she looks “hotter” now. Elizabeth was, back in 1998, still making headlines for dating actor Hugh Grant. See what he had for perks below.
Scroll for the photos. Liz, whose swimwear looks have remained iconic and proven lucrative with 2005-founded Elizabeth Hurley Beach swimwear, shared three photos. All showed the British beauty in swimwear, with the first shot bringing her in a white-piped and red bikini while wet-haired and on a chair.
The Vogue cover was then shared, with Hurley also snapped in a sporty orange bikini as she posed by a palm tree. A caption sent birthday wishes to celebrity-adored fashion photographer Steven Meisel, but it offered something more.
Taking to her caption as the smoldering snaps racked up likes, Hurley wrote: “Happy Birthday to the glorious Steven Meisel. This was my first bikini shoot ever and, boy, was I nervous.”
The comments section is seemingly saying only one thing: that Elizabeth Hurley looks better now than she ever did. The blue-eyed beauty is fresh from making headlines for heading out for the “first time in 14 months” as she hit up the ballet in a sizzling black wrap-a-round dress.

Liz, who dated “Four Weddings” actor Hugh Grant for 13 years, is fresh from opening up on the high-profile romance. Speaking to People just ahead of the weekend, the model revealed:
“You know, we went through so much together. But I’ve been thinking, one of the most important things to keep good relations with your exes is to have a lot of respect for their current life,” adding:
“We haven’t been romantically involved for 20 years, I think, even though we have such a strong friendship. But we’re always very aware that there are other people in our lives.” More below.
The Estee Lauder spokesperson continued: “There’s partners, there’s children. You can’t just, sort of, live in a lovely, rosy, mist of the past. You have to move with the times and be very respectful of the present, which we are.”
Liz is a mother to son Damian, 19. Hugh is godfather to the him and is now 60. Liz, well, she’s 55 and Instagram thinks she’s pulling a Benjamin Button. If you missed her 47 jars of quarantine marmalade, just scroll.
