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.

Heidi Klum Tweets Her Late Entry Into Our Bikini Awards

Heidi Klum must have realized that the dearth of paparazzi shots of her on the beach this year had left her out both our Supermodel and Reality-TV star categories in the VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards. Clearly that’s why she decided to tweet out the above pics on the Fourth of July. “Happy 4th of July everyone!!” she tweeted yesterday, adding with the second pic, “Gorgeous day!”

Well, Heidi, you may have just inspired us to add an extra category to the Awards this year — the Wild Card round. Which is good, because with an eighth category (yes, we have more to come) we have enough to do this bracket style, which means you’ll get three whole weeks of bikini madness. Stay tuned. And in case you missed them on Monday, here are all the other supermodels in contention:

VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards: One Direction, Joe Manganiello, Jersey Shore Represent For The Guys

Harry Styles, Joe Manganiello, Ronnie, Shemar Moore

We here at VH1 Celebrity pride ourselves on the fact that we are equal opportunity oglers. Of course, the paparazzi aren’t as egalitarian, so when we went about putting together today’s Bikini Awards contest, the Mankinis (sorry, but we promise no Speedos), we had a much more limited selection. Photographers were on hand to capture the likes of Joe Manganiello, Channing Tatum, Justin Bieber, Harry Styles and Shemar Moore, but they really didn’t present the sheer quantity of angles and attention to detail as they did for, say, Adriana Lima. But through our hard work and perseverance, we made sure to bring you the best of the man flesh on display, including three meaty servings from the Jersey Shore, the always shapely form of Mark Wahlberg, the unwaxed masterpiece that is Hugh Jackman, One Direction’s delicious Liam and Louis, and the deceptively sweet-faced James Marsden and Patrick Schwarzenegger. Ogle away, and then vote for your favorite. Polls close July 15 at 11 p.m. ET!

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!

Now that we’ve made Mickey Mouse blush by showing the sexiest Disney stars in bikinis, VH1 Celebrity continues the swimsuit parade with the hottest ladies of reality television. Our last list may have been filled with teen queens, but this time it’s all about the Wives!

We’ve got Mob Wives stars Big Ang, Drita D’Avanzo and Renee Graziano, Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives, Imani Showalter and Draya Michele of Basketball Wives LA AND Real Housewives Countess LuAnn, Kelly Bensimon and Gretchen Rossi. That’s a lot of seriously hot wives! Plus we have Ice-T’s lovely wife Coco, and ex-My Fair Brady lady Adrianne Curry. Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson recently got married, and even Kim Kardashian was a wife for a little while there, right?

VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards: Which Disney Stars Are Making Mickey Blush?

Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Selena Gomez and Bella Thorne

It’s that time of year again — when celebrities are spending more time on the beach than they are getting arrested or promoting new projects, thus giving us the perfect opportunity to check out their perfect bodies and spur on a little healthy competition. Yes, it’s the Bikini Awards!

As opposed to the contestants in our Supermodel category, the above Disney alumnae (and one current star) are a little less conscious of the camera, which, yeah, we kind of admit makes us feel dirty. Especially when you consider that Bella Thorne (right) is just 14 years old. But we’re not here to make you think gross things about Hannah Montana and High School Musical‘s Gabrielle. We’d just like to point out how much we with we’d look good in a neon string bikini, or a high-waisted polka-dotted number. And we’re so glad Thorne, Miley Cyrus, Ashley Tisdale, Adrienne Bailon, Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez are having so much fun frolicking on the beach and at the pool — even if it’s for work, or under the watchful eye of the paps.

So enjoy the pics below, then choose your favorite. Voting for this round ends July 15 at 11 p.m.!

The VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards: Supermodels Strip Down And Face Off!

bikin awards models edition

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!

Step back, beach babes: It’s time to leave it to the professionals! We can’t have a bikini contest without mentioning these lovely ladies who get paid to strut their stuff on runways and beaches around the world. Kate Upton has been shaping up to be the queen of the summer with her reign on the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover and her super hot (and patriotic) GQ spread. But she definitely has some rock hard competition in the form of former SI cover girl Brooklyn Decker, not to mention mega-hot model mamas Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes. We’ll let Gisele Bundchen join in the fun too, even though she’s technically only got half of a bikini. But her husband, Tom Brady, lost the Super Bowl, so we have some sympathy for her. Factor in supermodel legend Naomi Campbell, Victoria’s Secret angel Irina Shayk and Italian superhottie Claudia Romani, and you realize that it can be anybody’s game.

Check out the gallery below, and cast your vote for the hottest super model bikini bod of 2012. The polls close at 11 p.m. on July 15th!
