We’ve already told you about Alessandra Ambrosio unveiling this year’s $2.5 million Victoria’s Secret fantasy bra earlier this week. But we’re kind of surprised the folks over at VS didn’t give the honor to fellow angel Candice Swanepoel. After all, it’s her birthday today, and it probably would have made one hell of a present! The blue eyed beauty has amazingly never been chosen to show off the multi-million dollar lingerie, but then again she turns just 24-year- old today so she has plenty of time. The lovely South Africa native has already graced the covers of ELLE, Vogue, GQ and Harper’s Bazaar, plus done print ads for mega-brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Versace, Diesel and Guess. So when you look at it like that, she was probably grateful for the day off! Despite her youth, she’s already an old hand at the modeling game, having gotten her start at just 15. So in honor of her big day, let’s take a look back at her 24 hottest bikini looks of all time. Happy birthday, Candace!

You can’t afford this hotness. Supermodel mom Alessandra Ambrosio is the lucky lady chosen to wear Victoria’s Secret’s annual multi-million dollar Fantasy Bra. Or maybe not so lucky, because it probably hurts to wear bejeweled underwear. In the past these pricey pieces of lingerie have run up to $15 million, but this year’s is valued at a more modest $2.5 million…because there’s a recession and all. The 2012 Floral Fantasy lingerie gift set is decked out with amethysts, sapphires, rubies, and a massive white diamond in the center. On the downside, it’s dry clean only.
“It was perfect for me,” says Alessandra, who will hit the catwalk in the stellar ensemble this November at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “I felt they made it for me. It’s very romantic.” The new mother found out she was the chosen angel just three weeks after giving birth to her son, Noah. “I just wanted to scream,” she says of the big moment. “But I won’t lie, I was really worried. I was in total mother mode.” She’s spent the last five months doing some serious workouts to lose the baby weight, and if these photos are anything to go by, we’d say she’s been pretty successful.

From Complex to GQ, Harper’s Bazaar to Maxim, you never find a Rihanna issue left behind on a train. That’s one you always remember to take with you! So in honor of her second Vogue cover, join us as we rank Rihanna’s 20 sexiest cover-girl moments of all time. Enjoy!

Last night Detroit Tiger’s pitcher Justin Verlander threw a complete game shutout, leading his team into the American League Championship Series. And that’s not even the best news. After much rumor and speculation, the champion baseballer’s family has confirmed that he is also dating bikini goddess Kate Upton! Let’s just pause and reflect on the fact that this guy is living out every 13 year-old’s fantasy. Thank you.
Celebuzz spoke to Justin’s grandfather, who confirmed the rumor as any proud pop-pop would. “I heard he has been on dates with a Sports Illustrated girl. I saw a photo, she’s beautiful,” he said, in a voice we imagine sounding like the grandfather from Rugrats. “They make a good looking pair because he’s a good looking man too.” Because he takes after my side of the family, we added in his mind. “I do know he’s on the dating scene. Justin is a fine boy and whoever he ends up with is lucky. He’s not only a great baseball player, he’s a great guy.” Gawwww, grandpa.
Summer 2012 may now officially be over (RIP), but twitter is still just has hot as ever thanks to these lovely ladies! Sexy social media savvy stars like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and so many more can’t get enough of showing off their hot bods to their adoring followers, and treated us to some sizzling pix this month. Adrianne Curry actually raised money for charity by offering to post scandalous pix, while Kim K just does it because…that’s what she does. Riri and Gaga debuted their new tattoos and Amber Rose debuted her baby bump. Folks like Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum and Maria Menounos tweeted direct from the red carpet, but Courtney Stodden seemed to tweet mostly from her own bathroom! Sometimes the flashes were totally unintentional. Just ask The Newsroom’s Alison Pill, who “accidentally” sent a topless photo to her fans. At least she handled it like a champ! Fellow TV star Sofia Vergara also sent out a hot oops photo, revealing the extent of her wardrobe malfunction. It’s all there to see in the gallery below!
Angela Simmons spent her 25th birthday soaking up some rays on Miami Beach, which sounds like a pretty damn good way to spend a birthday if you ask us. But unfortunately (for her) her bikini must have shrunk in the wash or something (that’s a thing, yeah?) because she seemed to spend most of the time adjusting her too-small-two-piece to strategically make sure she stayed covered. Daddy Reverend Run of rap legends Run-D.M.C. would be shocked! She resorted to carrying a balled-up shirt around to shield herself from photographers, which is the hot bikini-clad celebrity equivalent of keeping your shirt on while swimming like we used to do.
Hopefully the small suit, the wedgies, or the photographers didn’t put a damper on her big day. We still feel bad for not including Angela in our annual summer Bikini Awards this year, but she’s been seen lounging beach-side so often these days that we’re sure she’ll be a definite contender for next year’s competition. Head down to the gallery below to see what we mean. Happy birthday, Angela!

Can you believe she just had a baby last January?! 23-year-old Candice went for a glittery gold number as she posed poolside. Photographers have arranged all sorts of heavenly settings for the ladies, which is appropriate considering their angelic status. They’ve been photographed under waterfalls, on beaches, and among tropical palms. Summer may be winding down, but it’s still plenty hot when these bikini babes are in sight. What are you doing still reading this? Head down to the gallery below to soak up the hotness!

*Sigh* They grow up so fast. When we first met Courtney Stodden in May of 2011 she was just a 16-year old girl about to settle down with the (50-year old) man of her dreams, Doug Hutchison. And now she’s an 18 year old woman! Where on Earth does the time go? We watched her grow up before our eyes. Oh, wait…she was kind of already there.
She’s still insanely young, but just look at what she’s done so far! She’s invented the floor flashing craze, become a twitter poet laureate, been banned from facebook, and ceaselessly campaigned for animal rights. She posed a serious challenge to Kate Upton’s Queen of the Cat Daddy throne and is now busting into the wide and wild world of reality TV on VH1’s own Couples Therapy. And she’s done it all while wearing some of the most fabulously crazy outfits of all time. So in honor of her big day, let’s take a look back at Courtney’s 18 Most Outrageous Outfits Ever! *tear* Thanks for the memories, Courtney. (Cue Wonder Years music)
See ya later, selfies! There’s a new social media photography cliche in town! And this one makes you look like you’re an attraction at Sea World. In the past few weeks, several of the fame world’s fabbest figures have found a new way to flaunt their physique: by posting underwater photos of themselves swimming to Twitter. Model Bar Refaeli kicked off the trend in July by tweeting a photo of herself in a pool with the caption “Feels Like Teen Spirit.”
We’re guessing that the Kardashians are huge Nirvana fans, because they soon jumped on the bandwagon, with Kim getting snapped in a similar but more choreographed pose. Never ones to do things alone, she had sister Kendall lend her a hand with her own underwater dolphin pic. And yesterday, Victoria’s Secret Angel Marisa Miller posted her own rendition of the look, showing off her burgeoning baby belly in the process. Are you down with this new Twitter trend? It’s pretty easy, as long as you’ve got a waterproof phone case and a pool. Oh, and a rockin’ bikini bod, apparently!
