Salma Hayek ushers in the new year in a plunging leopard swimsuit that flaunts her sultry curves.

Salma Hayek understands how to flaunt her amazing curves in the most flattering way possible when it comes to her bikini game. Her most recent shot exudes positive energy, perfect for kicking off the New Year with a bang.

The Eternals actress uploaded a snapshot of herself in a leopard one-piece bathing suit with a plunging V neckline that emphasized her endowments and drew attention to her shapely legs during her tropical trip. In one hand, she clutched her sunglasses, and in the other, she clutched a Monday need – her coffee. “First #coffee of the first #monday of the first month of a brand new year.,” she wrote in English and Spanish, keeping the description basic and approachable.

Hayek has been candid about her body image issues over the years, but she’s also come to appreciate her curvaceous figure. “Well, I’m approaching my fifties, so your body confidence isn’t that great,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2016. “I believe it varies by day; for everyone, there are days when you say, ‘This is it,’ and you adore it. Then there are those days when you think to yourself, ‘This can’t be it!’ Is this all there is to it?’ So I believe it’s always up and down!”

Now that she’s 55, the actress has been pushing a new generation of women to reject the ageism that abounds in this decade and embrace the beauty and knowledge that comes with age. “From the minute you put yourself together,” she urged, “enjoy who you are and celebrate life and realize that this is your journey.” That’s why Hayek makes it a point to post lovely bikini photographs on her Instagram feed – she’s proud of the body she’s in.
