Natalie Mariduena has been on a roll recently in the fashion department. The two-time SI Swimsuit model stunned in a bright green two-piece set for a Cult Gaia event last week.

“the green is giving,” she captioned a Jan. 28 Instagram post of her look. Mariduena wore the brand’s Joey Feather Top ($498) and color-blocked floor-length Lenny Skirt ($398). Her hair was slicked back into a high bun, and Mariduena sported short nude heels ($568) by Cult Gaia. The 26-year-old accessorized with the designer’s EOS Clutch ($348) in “jade,” the same color as her long nails and dangly bubble drop earrings.

Fellow models and Mariduena’s friends ran to the comments to share their thoughts on the fun outfit.

“Gorg 😍😍,” gushed SI Swimsuit model Brooks Nader, while Xeela Fitness founder Ilya Fedorovich wrote, “Woah.”

“Green is my second favorite color after macaroni,” quipped Joe Vulpis.

“as humans, our eyes see the most shades of green,” chirped Mariduena’s boyfriend, Toddy Smith. “did you know?”

“She’s giving ultimate goddess 💚,” the official Cult Gaia brand Instagram chimed in.

“giving how the grinch stole Christmas,” someone joked, while another piped in with, “I think you need a lawn mower for that.”

Mariduena lost 30 pounds over the last six months and documented her weight-loss journey for Xeela Fitness’s YouTube channel.

“I had that moment where I was like, I wish that I had worked harder and really prepared myself and really applied myself,” Mariduena said in a trailer posted to the brand’s IG account on Jan. 10. “I used to be a soccer player. I used to be super fit. I used to work out all the time. The goal is to get down to that point where I felt most comfortable, most healthy, most fit. If I really apply myself and I really put myself towards something, then I can do really great things and I can be super successful. It already is a mental battle.”
