Those abs, though! Hilary Duff has always been a beauty, but she's looking fiercer now than she ever has. A little over a month after she made waves with her super-sexy bikini selfie on Instagram, the Younger actress, 27, is proudly showing off her fit bod on the cover of Shape's May issue.
Clad in a pair of tiny cutoff jean shorts, a cleavage-boosting ruffled bikini top, and a pink cardigan left unbuttoned to showcase her insane washboard stomach, the "Sparks" singer truly embodies the magazine's "Slim, Strong, Sexy!" cover line.
"Love @shape_magazine and was so honored to be on the cover!" she tweeted on Wednesday, April 22, along with a picture of her upcoming cover. "It's the May issue! Go pick it up this Tuesday!"
Duff's abs have been getting a lot of time in the spotlight recently. Last month, in a rare moment of confidence (fueled, she later revealed, by a margarita or two), the Lizzie McGuire alum snapped a photo of her bikini bod in the mirror — and then posted it online.
"I had spent all weekend in a bikini, and I was feeling pretty good," she explained to Ellen DeGeneres of what prompted the pic. "I'm just like everyone else. Usually, I'm not feeling so good. I [have a] love-hate relationship with my body. [But] I was on a trip with my son, and it's been three years since I had him. I'm just so proud of my body and what it's done for me."
Chief among its accomplishments, of course, is her son. "It gave me the most beautiful little boy," the proud mom gushed of Luca, 3, her only child with ex-husband Mike Comrie. "I feel strong and powerful, and I wanted to inspire other women."
