IF this is how Sylvie van der Vaart dresses to open her presents on Christmas morning, her hubby Rafael must be itching for the big day.
The Dutch model gets into the festive spirit for her latest shoot as she prepares to unwrap a gift clad in a heart-quaking quartet of bra, knickers, stockings and suspenders.
Aside from her award-worthy physique, Sylvie also pulls an invitingly seductive face as she poses for the camera.
Sylvie cuts an equally jaw-dropping sight in other scorching ads for Dutch lingerie firm Hunkemoller’s Christmas campaign.
Sporting a variety of two-pieces and hairdos, the blonde beauty sends pulses racing as she behaves all sexy and sensual around her Yuletide gifts.
Sylvie – who now lives in Germany following Rafael’s move from Spurs to Hamburg in the summer – is continuing her rapid ascent up the career ladder following her battle with breast cancer.
The pin-up underwent surgery in May 2009 and a subsequent six-month course of chemotherapy before beating the disease.
Speaking about her ordeal last year, she said: “All the luxuries in the world are no protection against that moment when you are told the diagnosis. Then you are just a woman.
“For me, it was as if a bomb had gone off under our lives. Whether you are rich or poor, beautiful or ugly, young or old, cancer knows no boundaries.”
Sylvie credits Rafael with helping her to deal with the hair-loss she suffered throughout her treatment.
She said: “I was at home without a wig and my husband told me, ‘You know what, Sylvie, I just love your short hair.’
“I think you look way more beautiful than with your wig on. You should put wax in it.
“So he took his wax out of his wash bag, stood behind me in front of the mirror and did my hair.
“That was one of the most romantic things he has ever done for me. I looked at myself and I thought, ‘You’re right.’”
