Bella Hadid showed off her natural beauty in a figure-hugging mini dress in tropical throwback photos she uploaded to Instagram on Friday.
The supermodel, 26 – who was recently spotted on a rare outing in New York with brother Anwar Hadid after revealing her battle with Lyme disease – struck several poses with the ocean right behind her shortly after the sun set.
Showing off her gorgeous body, the beauty wore a black, figure-hugging dress with a hem that stopped just inches above her knees.
The strapless ensemble featured a large cutout in the front so the star could easily show off her toned midriff.
Her voluminous locks were parted to the side and flowed effortlessly down her shoulders in light waves.

Bella returned to Instagram on Friday after a month-long hiatus from the social media platform, with her last post shared to her main page on August 24.

She also candidly explained that she was taking time away from work to focus on her health and included an assortment of photos she took during her journey, such as receiving IV treatments.
Bella had written, “The little me who suffered would be so proud of adulthood for not giving up on myself.” She was also grateful to her mother for being by her side every step of the way.
As she described the downsides of battling the disease, she maintained a positive attitude, adding, “I’m doing well and there’s no need to worry” and “I wouldn’t change a thing for the world.”
The star wrote, “The universe works in the most painful and beautiful ways, but I have to say that when you’re struggling, things will get better. I promise.’
“I have so much gratitude and perspective on life, these 100+ days of Lyme, chronic illness, co-infection treatment, almost 15 years of invisible suffering, was all worth it…”
“If I’m able to do that, God willing, I can spend a lifetime spreading love from a full cup and truly be myself for the first time ever.”
She concluded with a shout-out to the people in her life and to her “genius” doctor and team of nurses. ‘I’ll come back when I’m ready. I miss you all so much. I love you all so much.”
Earlier this month, Hadid made a rare appearance with her brother Anwar as she returned to the spotlight. The two were spotted landing on a helipad in New York.
