’Tis the season for tropical vacations and itty-bitty string bikinis for Emily Ratajkowski. The model, who posed for the SI Swimsuit Issue in 2014 and ’15, is living her best life in the islands while getting her tan on. 

The mom of one, who shares son Sylvester with her ex-husband, film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, used her latest getaway to promote some stunning swimwear from her own line, Inamorata. She enlisted friend Tina Kunakey to help, too.

The women were captured from behind for an ultra-cheeky snapshot as they flaunted their toned back muscles in the cover snap of the 32-year-old’s latest Instagram post. Their legs were covered in sand while their long dark locks flowed with the wind. They played knee-deep in the water in one pic and shared a sweet embrace in another.

Ratajkowski rocked a yellow-and-orange two-piece featuring an underwire top, while the French model wore a bright, floral bikini in a classic tie strap style.

“turks and tina 🫶,” the My Body author captioned the carousel she shared with her 30.2 million followers on Dec. 10. She tagged photographer Victor Santiago, and the High Low With EmRata podcast host included a mirror selfie taken in a gorgeous, modern hotel room bathroom as the last pic. She added a cheetah print mesh skirt hung low on her hips as a cover-up and accessorized with a New York Mets baseball cap.

“Mamans @emrata 🫂,” Kunakey captioned her own Instagram post from the trip.

“Goddess,” Paola Locatelli commented.

“MOTHERS 🫀,” Loïc Koutana wrote.

“Cuties ❤️,” Cloudy Zakrocki chimed.

“The two hottest people on earth 😍,” another gushed.
