'Out of office': Claudia Schiffer, 51, displays her incredible figure in floral bikini as she enjoys a trip to the beach

She is one of the world's most successful supermodels.

And Claudia Schiffer took a well-earned break from her busy career as she enjoyed a trip to the beach in a tropical location on Tuesday.

The German beauty, 51, joked she had set her 'out of office' work emails on in the caption of the snaps where she donned a white floral bikini top.

Showcasing her jaw-dropping figure, Claudia also sported a beige patterned wrap skirt as she worked on her tan.

The star styled her platinum blonde locks into a ponytail for the day and completed her look with a pair of sunglasses.

The model put on a leggy display in one snap as she relaxed on the sand.

Claudia - who has Caspar, 17, Clementine, 15, and Cosima, 10, with her husband Matthew Vaughn - has spoken about ageing in the past, insisting that it's 'natural' to get older, and saying she doesn't feel 'envious or jealous' of younger models.

She told Elle UK: 'I've had many wonderful compliments in my time. But then you get to the next stage and you move on.

'You don't have to be called beautiful your entire life. It's a nice memory, but then the next generation starts. For me, it's a natural thing to do, to hand over, to not be envious or jealous.

'I can't think of anything worse than if you said, "There's a magic pill and it's going to make you look 20 again".'

Although she's happy to let the next generation of models take to the runway in her place, she credits her career with helping her break out of her shell. 

She said: 'I'd probably still be a very shy person who had no idea I could overcome that by experiencing many things.

'I would probably be in a job where you can be in the background, in a bank or behind the scenes. Modelling was my therapy. I learned how to communicate.'
