Is it really even fair to include models in the Bikini Awards? Well, it’s kinda like when they allowed professional athletes into the Olympics — it’s a bummer for the amateurs but much more fun for those of us watching at home. So, here we present you with nine professional posers posing in their best bikinis.
What makes a reality star these days? Whether you’re a pawn broker, an aspiring model or an already famous actor, all it really takes is the willingness to bare SOMETHING for our entertainment. Now, during the 2013 Bikini Awards, we’re happy that these ladies have been exposing some extra skin as well as their innermost secrets.
For better or worse, the children of athletes, musicians and actors are pretty used to having their every waking moment captured on camera. So it should be no surprise that when they grow up into lovely young ladies, these famous daughters know how to stay camera-ready, even when they’re frolicking on the beach. That makes them stiff competition for the non-royal entrants into the 2013 Bikini Awards.
Hollywood’s leading ladies work hard to meet our entertainment demands all year long, so naturally they deserve to vacation on the world’s most beautiful beaches. But even on holiday, they’re still working for us as cameras (both their own and the paparazzi’s) capture them in their scantily clad glory. Now it’s time to admire these stars and reward them with your votes in the 2013 Bikini Awards tournament:
It’s that time of year again! Whether you’re eyeing them as diet-and-workout inspiration or ogling for pure pleasure, we know you love a good photo of a celebrity in a bikini. This year’s Bikini Awards, celebrating the hard work our favorite stars have put into those flauntable curves and muscles, kicks off with a collection of former teen queens — and a current one for good measure.
Saint-Tropez, a once-sleepy fishing town on the French Riviera, owes a lot to the stars. It was the 1956 French movie And God Created Woman, starring blond bombshell Brigitte Bardot, that put the place on the map, instantly transforming it into a playground for the rich and famous. So, no, it wasn’t Diddy who made this place hot. But we did wonder why the likes of Jay Z and Beyonce, Neil Patrick Harris, Kate Moss, Rihanna and more choose to park their yachts there, of all places.

It’s a good thing they sent us all these postcards to tell us why they love Saint-Tropez. Wish we were there!
Here, for extra viewing pleasure, is a clip from And God Created Woman.
You know how it goes: As the weather gets hotter, so do the Twitpics and Instagrams. It’s a law of nature! This July was a scorcher, and it gave us plenty of beach pics and sexy shots to choose from, courtesy of your favorite artists and celebs!
What’s the deal with postcards? We like sending and receiving them, but they also seem a little bit like bragging, don’t they? “Wish you were here (in this amazing place, but you aren’t so ha.” Especially this collection of missives we received from our favorite celebrities this year — including Rihanna, Lucy Hale, Jennifer Lawrence, Max Greenfield and a certain commander in chief.
As Americans get ready to celebrate the 237th birthday of the United States tomorrow with picnics, barbeques and firework displays, we can’t help but thinking about the broad stripes and bright stars of the American flag. Fashion trends have come and gone, but putting on an outfit —no matter how skimpy!— that proudly displays the red, white and blue will always be a timeless way to show one’s belief in the values that Americans hold closely. (Well, that and for some of our more shameless celebrities, it’s also a great way to capture a photographer’s interest!)
To both of those ends, please take a spin to check out the following 50 Star-Spangled Hotties, an alphabetically-organized gallery chock full of gorgeous patriots like Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Kate Upton, Mr. T and even a few Real Housewives of Orange County! We’re pretty sure Francis Scott Key would’ve wanted it this way.
The year 2013 has been very kind in the way of super hot celebrity Twitpics and Instagrams. Rihanna has been at the forefront, giving out so many overtly racy snaps that her mother complained! But she’s far from the only one who has raised some eyebrows with their digital exhibitionism.

Digital titans Adrianne Curry and Coco were happy to oblige, as were musical favorites like Mariah Carey, Demi Lovato, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus. Silver screen sirens like Hayden Panettiere, Selena Gomez and Anna Kendrick showed their stuff, and even VH1′s own stars like La La Anthony, Erica Mena and Draya Michele got in on the action. There are always too many sexy pics to choose from…and it isn’t even July yet. So today at the midway point of the year, we’ve decided to take a look back at the most scandalously social media snaps of 2013…so far. Enjoy!
