After months of self-isolating on separate coasts, supermodel besties Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin reunited in Italy.

On Tuesday, Hadid and Baldwin, both 23, were spotted aboard a yacht in Sardinia, Italy, after reportedly flying into the Mediterranean island on a private jet earlier that day.

The models chose similar printed two-pieces for the outing— Hadid wore a pink and yellow style paired with chrome sunglasses, while Baldwin sported a zebra-print bikini from Candice Swanepoel’s swimwear line, Tropic of C, and accessorized with her signature gold hoop earrings.

Both went barefaced and pulled their hair back into slick updos, putting their natural beauty on full display.

Their Italian vacation marks the first time the longtime friends have been photographed out and about together since quarantining on opposite sides of the country amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. (Hadid has been social distancing at her family’s farm in Pennsylvania; Baldwin has been hunkered down with husband Justin Bieber in Canada and Los Angeles.)

After having one of the worst outbreaks of the coronavirus, Italy has reopened its borders to European tourists, but the CDC issued a Level 3 Travel Warning on June 18 recommending U.S. travelers defer all non-essential travel to Italy due COVID-19.

While it's unclear if the friends reunited for leisure or for work purposes, earlier this month, the Italian government allowed travel from the United States to Italy "for proven work, urgent health needs, or to return to your place of residence." Travelers would also be required to self-isolate for 14 days "under the supervision of health authorities."

According to Noonsite, Italy opened its borders to all foreign yachts coming from countries in the European Union/Schengen area without quarantine on June 3. (Foreign yachts coming from a non-EU country are still not permitted to enter Italy.)

During their time self-isolating before their Italy trip, Hadid kept practicing her modeling moves, staging remote shoots for Vogue Italia and Jacquemus and perfecting the selfie in bikini-clad backyard snaps.

As for Baldwin, she and Bieber launched a Facebook Watch series The Biebers on Watch, and in one episode, helped her hubby perfect his skincare routine.

And just like Hadid, she couldn't help herself by doing a little swimsuit modeling as well.
