The stunning 22-year-old, who has modelled for Vogue and has a contract with agency Storm, was snapped on the slopes of upmarket ski resort Meribel in the French Alps at the tail-end of 2017...but has since hot-footed it to Costa Rica for some exotic January sunshine.

On Instagram, Lady Amelia posted a shot of herself wearing a pair of mirrored sunglasses and holding a toy pink flamingo, with the words: 'May your 2018 be full of flamingos.'
The t-shirt snap is a hop in temperature from her last holiday; the week before the 22-year-old was rugged up and ready to go on the slopes of Meribel, a ski resort in France.
She also revealed to her 26,000 followers that her family party had missed their flight home from the Alps and took an impromptu stop instead on the banks of Lake Geneva.
American socialite Talita von Furstenberg, the 18-year-old granddaughter of Prince Egon von Fürstenberg, went from snow to sun effortlessly, posting snaps of herself in crystal clear waters

Also in the French Alps was Grace Kelly's granddaughter Camille Gottlieb.
The 19-year-old, daughter of Princess Stephanie of Monaco, posted photos from her winter break in Auron to her 44,000 followers.
Eschewing warmer wear, Camille is seen in one of the shots bravely sporting just a casual grey jumper and jeans, with a pair of fluffy black snow boots - despite the plummeting mountain temperatures.
Another photo, alongside a futuristic-looking statue of a black eagle in the same resort, sees the 19-year-old dressed in a chic black and white ski outfit, clearly ready to tackle the mountain.
Lady A and Camille weren't the only royals to hit the slopes, with jet-setting Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark making the most of the mountains with friends in an unnamed mountain resort.
Clad in designer ski-wear, the 21-year-old blonde New Yorker looked to be making the most of the snowfall in the post, which she captioned simply 'ciao, ciao'.
Maria-Olympia's brother, Prince Konstantinos Alexios of Greece and Denmark, revealed that the family later travelled to Harbour Island on Barbados.
The 19-year-old prince said he and his sister had fallen off a hammock while trying to think of a caption for a black and white shot of him with his arms aloft while casually riding a surfboard.
Meanwhile American socialite Talita Von Furstenberg, granddaughter of Prince Egon von Fürstenberg of Germany, also appeared to enjoy hopping from ski boots to swimwear.
The 18-year-old hit the black runs in Aspen during Christmas week but has since jetted to an altogether more sultry location.
The super-toned socialite shared Instagram images of herself playing backgammon on the beach and posing in crystal clear waters with a friend.
Princess Diana's niece, Kitty Spencer, the eldest daughter of Charles Spencer, retreated to Cape Town for some winter sunshine.
The 27-year-old snapped shots of herself enjoying the South African mountains wearing a white bikini and barely there sundress, and then posing with a female friend on New Year's Eve.
