Kate Beckinsale impressed Instagram with a bikini fashion show that didn’t leave much to the imagination.

“Out of office,” the 46-year-old stunner wrote on Instagram on Friday with a photo of herself wearing a high-waisted strapless black bikini. The image pleased Paris Hilton, who commented, “That’s hot” with a fire emoji.

Later, the El Tonto actress shared another post showcasing a leopard-print bandeau bikini top and white bottoms.

“What makes us human? Having to confront our own mortality, questioning our origins through philosophy, religion and science,” wrote Beckinsale. “And the fact that if we wear white bikini bottoms we will, within the hour, sit on a choc ice.”

The second post was branded with amused comments from Matt Dillon, celebrity fitness trainer Gunnar Peterson, and actress Laverne Cox. Beckinsale also posted a walking shot with a male friend writing, “Sometimes we swap Speedos.”

Beckinsale is apparently on a winter break after finalising her divorce to director Len Wiseman, whom she married in 2004.

Also this month, romantic rumours followed Beckinsale and Jamie Foxx, after the two were photographed talking at Hollywood’s Golden Globes Ambassadors Party.

The Underworld star denied the rumours with an Instagram photo that included her and the Oscar-winning actor.

“I would like to point out that standing next to someone does not mean I am dating them,” wrote Beckinsale. “Currently in line at the dry cleaners and if that’s true I’ve got a hell of a problem.”

Earlier in 2019, Beckinsale ended her four-month relationship with Pete Davidson (who is rumoured to be currently dating supermodel Kaia Gerber).
