An even better bikini body! Stephanie Seymour reveals the results of her exercise regime in St Barts after shedding 10lbs

It may not be fair, but Seymour has been a model since she was 16 and she knows the drill, get in shape before you hit the beach.

Especially when you”re headed to one peppered with celebrities.
Last year she was upset when she was photographed on the showbiz sand after gaining ten pounds.
When she was snapped having a cuddle with her openly gay son, Peter Jnr, Stephanie told Town and Country that he was comforting her about the weight gain: “I”d gained ten pounds, and was feeling insecure,” she admitted.
So this year she”s left nothing to chance, and unveiled a new improved beach body today thanks to dieting, exercise and a tan.
Just yesterday, the former girlfriend of Axl Rose was putting her already extremely well honed body through it”s paces in St Barts.

It”s on the Caribbean island that California girl Stephanie will no doubt be displaying her winning curves.
She made several show-stopping appearances on the beach last year.

A year on, and the pair look to be happier than ever, as the 64-year-old joined his wife on her work-out in a local park.

They revealed in September that they were calling off their acrimonious divorce despite already spending millions each on legal fees and had got back together.
They first announced their split in March 2009 and embarked on a bitter battle rife with allegations of infidelity, drug abuse and wild spending sprees and embroiled their children in the process.
Police were called to the couple”s home following Seymour”s complaint that Brant”s security assaulted her, Brant accused the model of drug use and was seeking sole custody of their three children.
The couple are parents to Peter Jnr, 18 , Harry, 14 , and seven-year-old Lily, as well as Dylan, 20 , from one of Stephanie”s earlier relationships.
Stronger than ever: Stephanie and husband Peter Brant did their exercise together
Appearing on the Oprah show in February, Stephanie candidly discussed her efforts to repair her rocky marriage.
She told Oprah the night before she and her husband were due in court to finalise their divorce she had a change of heart: ‘I had an epiphany. I went to my husband’s house with a sort of peace offering… and we just decided then and there to reconcile and work things out between us.’
Stephanie’s renewed commitment to her husband and marriage were not the only topics she openly discussed with the talk show host.
She also spoke about the racy photos of herself and 18 year old son, Peter, hugging and kissing which created a media firestorm around the family.

Seymour was also a coveted Victoria”s Secret angel.
She has since grace more than 300 magazine covers and considered the world”s most celebrated swimsuit models.
