Life's a beach! Bella Hadid shows off slender figure in a teeny black bikini after her Victoria's Secret debut  

Earlier this week fans watched Bella Hadid strip to her lingerie and strut down the catwalk in her very first Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

And the 20-year-old was flashing the flesh yet again on Sunday while enjoying a getaway in the Bahamas with her model friends.

Bella shared a snapshot to Instagram which showed her posing on the beach in a black bikini.

The model showcased her slender figure in the teeny two-piece, which featured a crocheted top and tassel ties on the bottoms.

Bella stood in the shadow of a palm tree with a stunning backdrop of white sand and turquoise waters behind her. 

She also posted a close-up photo of her wet hair and pretty face as she went make-up free.

And in a third shot the star showcased her posing skills while kneeling on the sand.

Make style waves in Bella's Ale By Alessandra bikini top

She's just walked in the prestigious Victoria's Secret show for the first time so it's fair to say Bella Hadid deserves a bit of rest and relaxation. She's still repping one of her fellow Angels in the process though by rocking an Ale By Alessandra bikini top.

Designed by Victoria's Secret stalwart model Alessandra Ambrosio, the Ale By Alessandra range has been hugely popular since it launched.

Ok, you might have cosy coats and chunky knits on the brain right now but once summer strikes - or if you're lucky enough to be jetting off for some winter sun like Bella - this bikini is a must-have.

Crochet swimwear exploded into the trend spotlight last summer and promises to be just as big next time around, so click right to bag Bella's bikini top, or if you're saving up for flights instead, get the look for less with our budget buys below.

Bella has been joined on the getaway by model friends including Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski, who she enjoyed a jet ski ride with. 

The previous day Bella had hinted about her sunshine getaway on Instagram. 

The daughter of Yolanda Hadid posed on the wing of a small plane with Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk, teasing that they were off to 'warmer weather'.

It seems the model friends are enjoying some time off after the excitement of the lingerie giant's annual fashion show.

The catwalk extravaganza took place in Paris on November 30, and aired on December 5. 

Bella stormed the runway in two skimpy looks, and modelled during her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd's performance. 

Meanwhile the brunette beauty has admitted that she auditioned to take part in the show last year, alongside sister Gigi and pal Kendall Jenner - but didn't make the cut. 

Speaking about how she felt about being cast this year, she told Paper magazine: 'I was really surprised, but definitely excited. I tried last year [to be cast in] the show [but] I think everything happens for a reason.'
