Elizabeth Hurley, 56, celebrates Christmas with hot pink minidress and a Liam Neeson cutout

Ankle brace? Sure. But Elizabeth Hurley isn't one for wearing an ugly Christmas sweater.

The English actress — who recently sprained her ankle while filming Christmas in the Caribbean — spent Christmas Day in a plunging hot pink halter dress from Versace. Known for her sultry swimsuit shots promoting her own beachwear line, the 56-year-old star flashed her thigh in the daring sequined number, which she paired with hoop earrings, a pendant necklace and a festive headband featuring silver tinsel buns. 

One shot shared by Hurley on Instagram sees her showing off her less-glam gray ankle brace while lounging on her couch. The Passenger 57 star also showed off one of her Christmas presents: a cardboard cutout of actor Liam Neeson, who appears in the holiday classic Love Actually alongside her former longtime beau, Hugh Grant. 

According to her caption, Hurley was quite taken by the Taken star.

"Happy Christmas!! Distracted from my #ankleinjury by whom I got in my stocking," she told fans. 

Commenters, meanwhile, were distracted by Hurley herself.

"STUNNING!!!!! You are incredible," gushed designer Donatella Versace. 

"You are simply off the charts stunning," added actress Patsy Kensit. "Beautiful inside and out."

"Did you not age?" read another comment.
