Hailey Clauson is serving looks on vacation. The 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star, who returned for the ’23 magazine and was photographed by James Macari in Puerto Rico, rocked a gorgeous red, orange and yellow bandeau bikini top and dark brown adjustable cheeky bikini bottoms.

She posed around dusk in the sunset-inspired swimsuit and flaunted her toned abs and tanned long legs. Clauson accessorized with thin oversized gold hoop earrings.

“Prettiest sunsets in St.John 🌅,” the 28-year-old captioned a Saturday trio of photos she shared with her 588,000 Instagram followers.

The SI Swimsuit model, who returned to the publication for her seventh year, traveled to St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands with her longtime boyfriend, Julien Herrera. She included a selfie of the two as the second slide in the carousel and showed off her glowy bare-faced skin and green eyes. Her eyebrows were brushed up for a clean look and her blonde locks were tossed back into a loose bun.

Clauson, the co-owner and creative director of Margaux the Agency, pursed her lips while Herrera stuck his tongue out for the camera. 

“Werrrkkkk bishhhh,” he commented under Clauson’s post

“OMG HOT HOT HOT!!! 🔥🔥🔥,” makeup artist Jodie Boland chimed.

“Prettiest WOMAN in all of St John,” someone complimented.

“Prettiest thing is not the sunset ! ❤❤❤😘😘😘🔥🔥🔥,” another agreed

“you got me droolin’,” one fan added.
