Hailey Clauson thrives under the sun. The SI Swimsuit model, who is back for her seventh year in this year’s magazine, stunned in her latest Instagram selfie. She posed in a colorful floral bikini top and showed off her tiny wrist tattoo, glowy skin, natural freckles and green eyes. Clauson’s blonde hair was slightly damp and left in natural beachy waves. She opted for minimal makeup, including a light sunkissed blush, pink-stained lip and feathered brows.

Clauson accessorized with chunky gold rings and created a set of Synchronicity ($122) and Oracle ($100) bangles from Cashmere Cactus. The 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star was photographed by James Macari in the Dominican Republic for this year’s feature.

“🌴🌺🐠🌊,” she captioned the post she shared with her 588,000 followers with a series of appropriate emojis. Clauson tagged her location as St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“Beauty!🌞,” Zosia Nowak commented.

“Beautiful Hailey, have a great day, 🌞🥰✨️🌸🤍,” one fan added.

The 28-year-old is the co-owner and creative director of Margaux The Agency, a Los Angeles-based boutique modeling agency.

“I’m very excited about this full circle moment,” she said about the company and her new role. “I feel like I’m able to take my power back from any negative experiences that I’ve had as a model and use it to build the safe space I always wanted for myself with agencies. I love the creative expression that comes with modeling as well as the business side of the industry, so I am really looking forward to bringing these two worlds together within this role. It’s also very important to me to support talent from all backgrounds—age, body type, culture, gender and sexual identities—and to be able to champion the shared dream of succeeding in this exciting industry.”
