She has homes in Connecticut, the Hamptons and Manhattan but Stephanie Seymour and her family eschewed a white Christmas for the bleached sands of St Barts.
Onlookers may have been confused looking at stunning ex-supermodel with her children, as the 44-year-old looked young enough to be their sister.
Stephanie, 44, kept showed off her amazing beach body in a crocheted sarong and carried a pair of cork wedges in one hand.
The former Sports Illustrated model, who is renting a house on the chic island, was accompanied by her two youngest children by billionaire industrialist husband Peter Brant: Harry, 15, and Lily, eight.
The trio frolicked in the ocean before gathering up a large white beach blanket and walking off along the shore together.
Not seen was her 18-year-old Peter Brant II who has been lying low since posting a comment on the Internet saying he planned to kill President Obama.
The jaded teen was forced to make a grovelling public apology after uploading a screen grab of an inflammatory text message conversation between him and a friend following President Obama’s election victory in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
In response to wealthy friend Andrew Warren’s statement that ‘were (sic) all poor now’ Mr Brant II wrote: ‘I have a contingency plan kill Obama hahaha.’
Warren then wrote: ‘HAHA well Atleast (sic) women have rights. Oh wait I don’t care.’ To which Mr Brant II replied: ‘Hahahaahaha exactly.’
And Peter II caused another scandal on the very same beach a couple of years ago after photos emerged of him embracing and kissing his bikini clad mother on the mouth and brushing his hand over her breast.
The family released a statement to the press in which Peter said: ‘I would just like to say that these pictures have been taken completely out of context, my mother and I are very close as she is with all her children.’
‘We have nothing to hide and with that in mind I would like to say that I am openly gay,’ he added. ‘At my age my mother and I are almost like friends and I feel open to talk to her about anything (and yes our relationship may be different because of my sexuality).’

The 44-year-old looked trimmer than ever after losing 10lbs since the controversial photos where published.
Stephanie even told Town and Country magazine that her son had been comforting her about the weight gain when the snaps were taken: ‘I’d gained ten pounds, and was feeling insecure,’ she admitted.
