Kate Beckinsale regularly wows us with her stunning style, but her most recent Instagram posts are a new level of inspirational.

Posing in two chic and seriously skimpy bikinis, the actress proved that even the fact that 2019 is swiftly coming to an end can't put a dampener on her steamy swimwear.

The Serendipity star captioned the first snap, "Out of office." If you previously thought you were enjoying the autumnal climes, your mind will be instantly changed thanks to Beckinsale's photo.

Next up, Beckinsale posed with Jonathan Voluck and wrote, "Sometimes we swap Speedos."

Finally, Beckinsale changed into a second bikini, this time featuring a leopard print bandeau top. The actress mused, "What makes us human? Having to confront our own mortality, questioning our origins through philosophy, religion and science. And the fact that if we wear white bikini bottoms we will, within the hour, sit on a choc ice."

During a 2016 interview on The Graham Norton Show, Beckinsale revealed that director Michael Bay had insulted her physique while making, and promoting, Pearl Harbor.

She explained, "I think he was baffled by me because my boobs weren't bigger than my head and I wasn't blonde. I'd just had my daughter and had lost weight, but was told that if I got the part, I'd have to work out. And I just didn't understand why a 1940s nurse would do that."
