18 Models Who Are Having a Better Winter Than You

...unless you live in Hawaii or something. In which case, can we visit?

Depending on where you are located right now, there's a fairly good chance that you're cold. Like, really, really cold. You may also be ghostly pale, flaky skinned, and generally cranky at the universe. It happens. In New York, skies are gray, and the temperature is currently hovering just above the freezing mark — and it's only going to get worse. Hooray!

So, you basically have two options: Either use up the majority of your vacation days (and monthly rent) to fly off to an Instagrammable tropical locale, making all your friends, family, and exes jealous in the process, or, you can hunker down, bundle up, light a coconut scented candle and scroll through this post of gorgeous models who are spending their winters wearing skimpy bikinis and building tans in said tropical locales. (Oh, and did we mention they're getting paid for it? Because, well... they are.)

Better yet, you can do both! Most airlines have WiFi now, right? 

Below, check out 18 island-hopping models we'd really like to trade places with, like, yesterday. 

Karlie Kloss quite literally escaped winter (and gravity?) by heading to Australia.

This is what Joan Smalls wears to work in the winter. Ughhh

What happens in Cabo stays in Cabo! Well, until Jasmine Tookes Instagrams it and makes you question your entire existence.

Stella Maxwell looks rather warm, wouldn't you say?

Lily Aldridge went to Sicily without asking us if we wanted to join her. Rude! 

...and Christy Turlington went to Rome. The nerve!

This doesn't even look remotely comfortable, but I'd still trade places with Ashley Graham in a heartbeat.

Alessandra Ambrosio completely forgets what cold feels like — and she's fine with that. Her personal hashtag is "forever on vacation" for a reason.
