Singer Tallia Storm shows off her athletic prowess (and new hairstyle) as she larks around on the beach in two bright bikinis during festive break in Barbados
She’s known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to her sartorial style.
So it’s hardly surprising Tallia Storm failed to go unnoticed as she hit the beach in the picturesque Caribbean island of Barbados, on Thursday afternoon.
The 17-year-old soul singer – who propelled to stardom after being discovered by Elton John a few years ago – looked incredible in a variety of vibrant swimwear.

Despite her tender years, Tallia rose to fame when she was just 13 and had a chance encounter with Elton John's partner David Furnish while on holiday with her family.
The producer was staying at the same hotel and Tallia plucked up the courage to hand him her demo CD in the hope he and the famous singer would listen to it.
'He was absolutely charming and so nice,’ she previously recalled. ‘He asked where I was from and what kind of music I liked. That was it.
Sweet thing: The singer was seen strolling along the beach with a donut shaped float
Quick change: She also rocked a pale pink two-piece, complete with black panelled detail
‘I sat back down at my table and we literally checked out of the hotel and left, with me thinking - oh well I tried.'
Tallia was about to fly back to UK from San Francisco when she picked up the phone to Elton, who was so impressed with her recordings he invited her to open his show.
She spent six months rehearsing and then took to the stage at the beginning of one of his concerts for a lengthy five-song 25 minute slot.
