Just days after unveiling her stunning 50kg weight loss, former model and actress Tziporah Malkah has been seen proudly wearing a bikini at the beach.
The 45-year-old was snapped flaunting her slimmer figure on the NSW Coast yesterday in a black and white bikini.
As she flashed her toned midriff in the two-piece set, Malkah snapped selfies of herself on her phone — using a selfie stick.
Malkah, accessorised her skimpy look with a black sarong tied around her waist, black fishnet gloves and an oversized pair of dark sunnies. She also stacked several bracelets on her right wrist and was rocking a sparkly belly button ring.
Her seriously extra beach attire was teamed with a wavy finish to her tousled red hair and glamorous smoky eyed makeup.
She finished the look with an Aussie wardrobe staple, suitable even for the most elegant of souls — a black pair of thongs.
In the snaps, Malkah can be seen taking a selfie as she holds back her hair from her face.
As she beams for the camera, it’s clear she delighted with her recent weight loss achievements.
The socialite holds the photography tool — known for their popularity among (annoying) tourists — to get the best angles, holding it at a variety of different heights to get the shot.
MALKAH’S STUNNING TRANSFORMATION
It’s no surprise she’s feeling confident about her appearance after recently unveiling her incredible transformation.
After dropping a mammoth 50kgs, she gushed about her slimmer figure in an interview with New Idea last week.
“I’m down 10 dress sizes — from 24 to 14,” Malkah said. “This is the lightest I’ve been since I was 35 — more than a decade!”
She lost the weight the help of renowned hypnotist Mark Stephens, who performed what he called “hypnotic lap band surgery” on the star to help her ditch her emotional baggage.
“Now, whenever I pass the lolly section at the supermarket, a mantra Mark taught me rings in my ears,” Malkah told New Idea. “I don’t want it, I don’t need it, I won’t have it!”
She also hired a personal trainer and was exercising for up to four hours a day to lose the weight.
HER UNHEALTHIEST MOMENT
It was during an appearance on I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here in 2017 that she said she reached at her unhealthiest and unhappiest weight of 120kg.
“I was in such bad shape, mentally and physically,” she told the publication. “The producers would never pick me for anything too physical like bungee jumping back then, and I don’t really blame them, I was too big and unhealthy. But now … well it’s a different story.”
The difference in her appearance was so great, the article was titled “Kate is back” — in reference to her former name Kate Fischer.
Now weighing less than 70kg, Malkah revealed she’s considering returning to modelling and is looking for more TV opportunities.
Back in the ’90s, Malkah enjoyed huge success as a model, appearing on the front cover of prestigious magazines Vogue Australia and doing shoots for huge American department store Bloomingdales as well as being the face of AMP Capital Shopping Centres in Australia in the early noughties.
Malkah was previously engaged to James Packer after meeting at the height of her success in 1993.
She and Packer spent five years together, separating in 1998 after a two-year engagement.
