Brooke Shields is on vacation and modeling bikinis

We’re in prime Spring Break season, and, just in case you forgot, Brooke Shields is here to show you how to enjoy it in style – and possibly make you a little jealous in the process.

The 52-year-old actress opted for a tropical getaway and made sure to pack her bikinis, which she modeled in a series of posts on Instagram. The first photo found Brooke relaxing in an oceanfront pool, with the caption, “Out of office and into vacation mode.”

Although Brooke hasn’t revealed where she’s spending her holiday, she’s sure making the most of it. On Friday, she posted a clip riding the waves on a jet ski. I’m so jealous.

Perhaps inspired by the #tbt video she posted earlier this month, back when she was stranded with Christopher Atkins on a lush island in the 1980 movie The Blue Lagoon, Brooke posted a pic captioned, “Another Blue Lagoon…” where she wore a navy bikini while soaking in the warm island waters. And, just in case you didn’t think she could still completely rock a bikini, she shared a photo while standing on a staircase in yet another bikini, relishing in “Bikini life in paradise.” Okay, now I’m really jealous.

But, hey, Brooke deserves a vacation, after launching her new fashion line, Brooke Shields Timeless on QVC a few weeks ago. She’s also making an extended guest appearance on Jane the Virgin, playing actress and supermodel River Fields. Typecasting? Regardless, she looks great, and I’ll be using these photos to help inspire me to get bikini ready for the summer, as I don’t think the sun will ever shine again here in Atlanta.

Post script: as I was writing this, all of the Blue Lagoon references made me wionder what happened to Brooke’s co-star Christopher Atkins, whom I wouldn’t have minded being stranded with anywhere. As of this 2015 Australian interview, he’s looking quite fine. I’d still be more than happy to spend time with him on a sandy beach any time.

    that vacation spot looks lovely. And so does she.

    Him, i cannot agree with. Too sunburned and too blond hair.

  2. V4Real says:

    She looks great. And no she doesn’t look great for her age; she just looks great.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      I’m jealous-we are the same age.
      She obviously works out. Look at her shoulders! Her face looks younger but still age appropriate, and she looks happy, which always takes years off your looks.

  3. lisa says:

    she has money and she’s never had a clothing line before. i cant help but side eye suddenly putting out things just to have your name on them, made in china, taking advantage of the cheapest labor you can find

    • Spring says:

      This. I admire Brooke for navigating her insane upbringing into responsible adulthood, and she’s long come across as a kind, caring, thoughtful person. But now she’s yet another one who’s got to jump on that gravy train of selling her name to businesses that exploit women’s/children’s labor and pour more cheap crap into our environment produced via some pretty toxic chemicals, incl. petroleum-derived reagents & endocrine disruptors. A People Mag article described the line’s pricing from $29 to $109, so no way that’s a cruelty-free (humans and animals), eco-friendly, more sustainable operation.

      On a personal note, I’m trying to wean myself from buying evermore mass-produced, cheaply made crap. It’s hard. I’m just so conditioned to buy stuff, and these companies exploit and profit off of such behavior. People like Brooke shilling their stuff help drive our unsustainable consumerism. As a consumer, I fuel the profits and am really trying to clean that up.

      • Esmom says:

        I hear you on trying to avoid fast fashion. The other day I ordered cat food from Target and a really cute cardigan popped up and I threw it in my cart almost without thinking. Once it arrived, the buyers remorse set in and I returned it. I didn’t in any way need it but it was cute and cheap. It’s hard to resist that impulse for sure.

      • Rumi says:

        Beautiful vacation spot and she looks good.
        My new years resolution was to purchase no clothing, shoes or accessories. I went through all of my stuff, donated two thirds and still I only wear less than half of what I own. Its shameful.
        Cheap and cheerful fashion is never a good buy. They don’t last long and I decided to be an ethical consumer.
        I watched this documentary where they showed us exactly how these items are made under what conditions I was horrified.
        I boycotted Zara ( was my favorite high street brand) because they haven’t paid Turkish workers at all!

      • Spring says:

        Fast fashion: I hadn’t heard that term. What a great descriptor. The next time I’m tempted to throw something into my cart, I hope I can remember that idea of fast fashion as the clothing equivalent of junk food — not good for me, those low in the supply chain, or the environment.

        I’m going to have to see if I can find that BBC documentary & view it from the U.S. I need all the reality I can get to help break my consumerist habit. Even though I’ve reduced it, I’m still engaging in it. It’s good to hear other people’s stories & thoughts on this subject.

  4. smcollins says:

    So jealous! Not of her figure (although….), but of that vacation spot. What I wouldn’t give for a getaway like that.
    *drifts off into deep daydream of sun, sand, crystal blue water and margaritas*

  5. Other Renee says:

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Brooke. She survived child star status and a pushy alcoholic mother and somehow remained solid and grounded unlike so many other child stars. I loved the show “Suddenly Susan.”

    She looks amazing. But what is the point of a vacation if you need to bring along a professional photographer? That’s called WORK. Don’t pretend to be on vacation if this is really just a way of promoting yourself in the media to draw attention to your new fashion line.

    • Beth says:

      Yes. A REAL vacation should only have phone cameras or a familys camera. A vacation is meant for relax,not work

    • Kitten says:

      I agree with you.

      I do like Brooke though. She’s genuinely funny and charming IMO.

  6. Ms. Lib says:

    Rocking 52!

  7. Beth says:

    She looks great, but so do plenty of women older than her,wearing the same thing. 52 isn’t ancient, or an age where it’s rare that a woman would look bad in a bikini.
    I’d absolutely love to be able to go to the places for vacations that the rich and famous get to go. Beautiful looking place

    • perplexed says:

      She seems to have muscles in her back, which I tend to find impressive for any age.

      • Moneypenny424 says:

        Yes, I was here admiring her back! I’m toned, but I want my back to look like that!

  8. tracking says:

    She looks fabulous, fit and healthy without starving herself. My daughter is built just like Brooke, I want her to see you don’t have to be a waif to be gorgeous. Go, Brooke!

    • HK9 says:

      Yes!! It’s great to see someone who not only looks fit & healthy but happy as well. I don’t know about you but a lot of times you may see someone who looks great but you wonder what they have to do to stay that way. I need to find out where she’s vacationing-it looks amazing!!

      • tracking says:

        I live in an area with a lot of skinny-but-miserable-seeming women. So I love this!

  9. Sojaschnitzel says:

    Holy forking shitake, she looks good! Amazing.

  10. Genessee says:

    Sorry Brooke, but you will always be Rita Glossner to me….lol

  11. Happy21 says:

    Holy crap she looks fabulous! Wow!

    I want to ask a related question: I’m quite sure Brook has gray hair by now, but gets it colored on the reg. I’ve done the same thing since my mid-30s (I started going gray early), and now I’m 47.

    This summer, I’m going to get my hair chopped off, all of it, and just rock my gray, which is at about 90% now, and is a nice silver.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about this idea that women have to keep covering their gray to look young. If you’re getting grays, are you going to color your hair? Or just let the gray come in? Is anyone out there in their 40s or 50s rocking the gray?

    • smcollins says:

      I’m 43 and starting to notice some white hairs coming in. My hair is naturally really dark so I’m curious as to how it will transition. I’m going to try to avoid coloring over it and just go with it. I wear it long & loose so I figure it will still have a touch of “youthfulness” to it. My mom started going grey in her early/mid 30’s and colored over it for yeeeaaarrrs. Her hair is now it’s natural white/silver and I think she looks fabulous!

    • Pandy says:

      Mid 50s now and have been covering my greys for years. I am so tired of it! And the colors don’t seem to work anymore – nature does change your complexion to go with your “real” hair color. I did two heavy blond highlight sessions on my hair in October and December. I had left my roots for a month (I was coloring every 3 weeks) and had them highlight everywhere but the grey roots. It’s now been five months. Hair has almost grown out to my eyebrows. And it looks amazing! Salt and pepper but a lovely silver salt. And it’s SO SOFT … I’ve forgotten what virgin hair feels like. I’ve had one trim since October. The blonde makes it a little less scary to let the grey grow out but I’m surprised how much I suit the blonde! I am a natural brunette. I’m happy I’ve taken the plunge. I’m getting a lot of compliments. Men telling me it looks sexy … which surprises me. Of course my friends are trying it now, irritatingly. I always lead the trends lollll.

    • Pandy says:

      Adding to your comment. At a certain point, I didn’t feel like my dark colors suited me anymore. And I was so self conscious when roots started to show. I stopped believing that I looked younger with my hair colored. I can also pretty much peg everybody’s age – despite hair coloring. I think I look younger now with the silver. I’m with you – rock it out!

    • Ange says:

      I have to as my skin tone looks absolutely horrendous with grey. Like, I look ill. I’m not sure how to navigate that going forward.

    The storyline about her eyebrows on Jane the Virgin was kind of funny.
