Ever one to share model Alexa Chung couldn't just vanish away on holiday without updating everyone on exactly what she was doing.

And just in case you thought she was lolling around the beach, sipping cocktails and reading a trashy novel, the 29-year-old posted snaps of her meeting dolphins, wearing a leopard print bikini and fooling around on the beach.

Alexa, who is also a contributing editor for British Vogue, showed off her slim body and penchant for fun in the series of snaps.

Instead of just lazing on a beach towel the former T4 presenter manages to make human pyramids and even takes breaks to play on slot machines.

In one picture Alexa is gazing serenely at the camera and her toned legs are draped over a sun lounger.

Alexa is on her luxury break with American fashion writer Derek Blasberg, New York designer and DJs Leigh Lezark and Harley Newton.

Alexa also posted snaps of her on a gold throne and playing the slots.

When she is not on a break Alexa can often be seen in the front rows of the fashion shows, taking in every detail.

Her other passion is the current man in her life, The Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. They've been dating since May 2012.

Previously, Alexa dated Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner for four years until their break up in July 2011, and before that she lived with fashion photographer David Titlow, who was 20 years her senior. The pair split in 2006.

After carving out a career for herself as a TV presenter Alexa is now a respected expert on fashion.

She recently said: 'I normally shop from the catwalk, 'So I don’t usually notice trends.'

Nice body.

She does look like a proper catwalk model. Catwalk models have those kind of long, bony legs, and the same no breasted, thin figures no wonder she was picked as a model and fashion icon. She is pretty but emaciated looking, like most models.

amazing double standards regarding women's weight from commenters on this site. I can't believe the argument about how people criticise larger women still exists, when it's clear that if these comments are anything to go by, slimmer women get criticised at every opportunity, usually by the "real woman" brigade.
