Since we can’t celebrate peace or prosperity while we’re at war and our economy is in the dumps, we’re ringing in the new year with the next best thing: celebrity bikini pics! Our gallery is ordered from one to 100, with one being the hottest. We tried sticking mostly to candid photos, but bent the rules a few times — especially for Miranda Kerr (her Victoria’s Secret shots are just too hot!).

There’s a certain kind of celebrity that flies from its native habitat of New York, Los Angeles or London to breed, bath in warm ocean waters or forage for food and drink along remote tropical beaches. A newly reunited Jude Law and Sienna Miller fall into this category. The on-off-on couple spent the holidays in the Caribbean, as did Rihanna and Marc Jacobs (not together, of course). On the Pacific side, there have been two very rare spottings in Hawaii: Pierce Brosnan with his wife and a shirtless Jeremy Piven.
A different breed has been spotted playing in colder climates this holiday season, including Katy Perry and Russell Brand, now engaged after a pre-Christmas London rendezvous of shopping, sledding and most likely sessions of baby-making practice. But Aspen is the real hot gathering spot in the snow this year, with sightings of Mariah Carey, Antonio Banderas, Paris Hilton and Leann Rimes. [Photo: Splash News Online]
New Year’s Eve may be days away, but Rihanna is already warming up to party. In her native Barbados, the “Hard” singer parties it up at the Kensington Oval Cricket Ground, near Bridgetown. Riri looked happy and healthy in her sexy black mini dress, red nails, and gold jewelry as she toasted her glass. Let’s hope 2010 brings less drama than ’09! [Photos: Splash News Online]
Rihanna always has good style when she flies, but how does she do it? While most of us put on our comfiest sweats while boarding a cross country flight, Rihanna takes the opportunity to look fabulous. Riri deplaned in LAX after flying in from New York, and looked very well put-together with over-the-knee boots, tight black pants and animal print accents. First class all the way!

VH1 has the exclusive first look at Rihanna‘s new video for “Hard,” the latest single off of her album Rated R. In the clip, Rihanna marches around in sexy, militaristic outfits, combining the grittiness of Platoon with the best of the Paris runways. At one point she even flashes the camera to reveal her breasts, which have been covered in black tape. Yep, General RiRi is in command.

For Rihanna, it’s not a question of whether to wear your gigantic winter hat—it’s a question of which gigantic winter hat to wear. The singer zipped from Paris to London today, stepping on and off the Eurostar with a black furry monster of a cap and carrying what appears to be the pelt she slapped atop her skull the other day in NYC (or some other slicing from the same animal). Is this some kind of promotional tie-in or does she just really, really want to keep her head warm? If stylish young ladies start strutting around with dead Muppets on their dome, we’ll know who to blame. The newspaper print pants she wore in Paris? We’re not too worried about those catching on (give them a look in the gallery below).

Even someone who’d never heard of Rihanna would have spotted her shopping around Manhattan yesterday, thanks to the ginormous furry hat she refused to take off inside or out. Kept warm by the Muppet humping her head, Rihanna and pal Melissa Forde hit 5th Ave, Louis Vitton, Toys R Us and Jason’s Jewelry, a bargain electronics store in Union Square. Between this caterpillar gangbang and the fuzzy wonder she wore in London last month, we can’t wait to see what headwear the Barbadian beauty will rock when it really gets cold.

Uh oh, Rihanna! Your fly’s unzipped! The “Russian Roulette” singer went down the Jennifer Aniston road for her GQ cover, adding some short shorts but losing the tie. Racy photos of Rihanna unsurprisingly reside inside the mag as well, one featuring the singer in a knit halter top that’s a bit too short for outside wear.
“[Island Def Jam chairman] L.A. Reid came into the shoot,” Rihanna told her interviewer, “and he was like, ‘Rihanna, put some f*cking clothes on!’” When the guy pimping your album says you’re too nude…you’re definitely doing something right.
Rihanna shot her video for “Hard” earlier this month, and we already have our hands on a 30-second sneak peek. Talking to MTV News, Rihanna described the video as “couture-military.” Now we know why. With machine gun in hand, she commands a troop of soldiers while wearing a futuristic white top, black shorts (or are those panties?), and combat boots. Considering the song’s lyrics (“I see you aiming at my pedestal, I betta let ya’ know that I’m so hard”), we’re guessing that Rihanna is firing a warning shot with this video. Potential competitors: Don’t even try!
Not only will “Hard” have its world premiere exclusively on VH1, MTV and The FABlife on Thursday, December 17, at 4PM EST, but Rihanna will also be here to chat with fans. Don’t miss it.
Prior to Tila Tequila announcing her engagement, Tila and “fiance” Casey Johnson walked the red carpet at the Famous Stars and Straps 10th Anniversary and Snoop Dogg’s 10th Album Event and had a little slip of the nip. That’s right – Tila’s areolas just popped out of her top and posed for the cameras too. Although Tila’s nipples made their red carpet debut, she’s not the fist celebrity to have a little booby wardrobe malfunction. Check out our gallery of other celebrity nipple slips!
