Bikini awards hollywood's leading ladies

Welcome back to the ever-popular and much beloved VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards! Yes, it’s that time of year again, where we pit your favorite stripped down celebs against one another to see has the most bangin’ bikini bod of 2012. Happy summer, folks!

Any D-lister knows that all they gotta do to make headlines is strut their stuff beachside in as little clothing as possible. But amazingly, this same trick also works for the Hollywood elite! No matter how big their movies open, superstars in bikinis will always lead the news. And 2012 has been no different! Fresh off her unfortunate phone hacking, Scarlett Johansson forgot her troubles (and Sean Penn) under the hot tropical sun. Jessica Alba showed off her toned torso mere months after giving birth to her second daughter Haven, while Anne Hathaway showed off her Catwoman-worthy body and new haircut! Big screen badass Michelle Rodriguez hit up Cap d’Antibes, and Gabrielle Union kept it right here in the USA as she basked in the Miami heat.

But the bikini rule isn’t just limited to film stars! Glee goddess Lea Michele, Pretty Little Liar Lucy Hale and former My Name Is Earl star Jaime Pressly all have been spotted out catching some rays. Even Mischa Barton turned up to remind us why we had a huge crush on her during The O.C. heyday. If you’re already Hollywood hottie, why not go to the beach in a bikini? It’ll only help your career! And for the rest of us, head on down to the gallery below and cast your vote for the best leading lady bikini bod of 2012. Polls close on July 15 at 11 p.m. ET!
