Thereâ€™s a reason why sheâ€™s nicknamed â€œthe Body.â€
Legendary supermodel Elle Macpherson may have swapped the catwalk for the world of wellness â€” sheâ€™s co-founder of WelleCo, a line of supplements â€” but her latest Instagram photo proves that the 55-year-old former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover star is still ready to model a bikini at a momentâ€™s notice.
The Australian beauty showed off her athletic figure in a bikini â€” which she paired with a wide-brimmed hat and tousled waves â€” in the stunning shot, which has friends and fans awestruck.
â€œYouâ€™ve always been â€˜the Bodyâ€™ and you always will be,â€ a commenter told Macpherson, who earned the nickname after landing a record five Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue covers. Her most recent cover turn for the magazine was in 2006.
â€œAinâ€™t no one else stealing ‘the Body’ moniker anytime soon,â€ added a fan.
Others hailed the mum of two as a â€œgorgeous goddessâ€ and â€œtimeless beauty.â€
â€œElle youâ€™re an inspiration for us women in our 50s,â€ another follower wrote, while many called her â€œbody goals.â€

While Macpherson undoubtedly has genetics on her side, she also outlined her fitness, wellness and beauty regimens for anyone interested.
â€œPeople ask me what I do to keep in shape,â€ she captioned her bikini shot, which was taken in the Bahamas.
â€œFirst of all I start on the inside,â€ she shared, plugging her go-toÂ WelleCoÂ supplements and noting that she eats plant-based meals.
â€œI spend as much time as I can in nature â€” swimming, walking â€” and drink loads of filtered water,â€ she added. â€œMeditation/reflection/prayer is important to me; it only takes 10 minutes a day but is a non-negotiable.â€
Lymphatic drainage and stints in an infrared sauna are also key, she noted.
