Hailey Clauson celebrated her 28th birthday on Tuesday. In addition to sharing a few snapshots of herself in a string bikini, the SI Swimsuit model followed up with another birthday-themed Instagram post on Thursday.

Clauson shared several behind-the-scenes pics from her special day, including her evening outfit. The 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue cover model rocked a sleeveless little black mini dress, which she paired with tan-and-black Chanel heels. Clauson accessorized with statement earrings, a black leather jacket and a small handbag. She wore her blonde locks pulled up into a ponytail with a few face-framing layers left out and sported a natural glam look.

“Birthday shenanigans✨🌕🥂,” Clauson captioned the post she shared with her 583,000 followers. She also tagged the Parker Palm Springs resort in Palm Springs, Calif.

As well as showing off her ensemble, Clauson shared pics of herself standing in the shallow end of a pool and a few photos of and with her boyfriend, photographer Jullien Herrera.

Friends showered Clauson with well wishes in the comments section.

“Cutie happy bday,” Pyper America Holder wrote.

“Happy Birthday babee😍,” Tika Camaj added.

Fellow SI Swimsuit model Bojana Krsmanovic left her feedback in the form of one straightforward emoji: “🔥🔥🔥.”

Clauson will return to the 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue this spring. She recently returned from her photo shoot for the forthcoming May issue in the Dominican Republic, where the model shared a few sneak peeks on location and some behind-the-scenes content with fans on Instagram.
