Bikini Awards Round 2: Famous Daughter Angela Simmons Takes On Former Teen Queen Jennie Garth

Jennie Garth Angela Simmons

The best thing about the VH1 Bikini Awards, well, besides all the hot photos, is how absolutely unpredictable they can be. In the Past and Present Teen Queen category, for instance, pretty young things like Nina Dobrev and Jennifer Lawrence were destroyed by Beverly Hills 90210 legend Jennie Garth, who actually has a teenage daughter of her own. Now she goes toned abs to toned abs with Famous Daughter victor Angela Simmons, who basically cleaned the floor with those Jenner girls.

Angela Simmons, Paulina Gretzky + Other Famous Daughters Dance Into The Bikini Awards

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.

The 100 Hottest Celebrity Bikini Pics Of 2012

Thte 175 Hottest Bikini Photos Of 2012

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, joyful Kwanzaa, and — why not? — happy birthday too, while you’re at it! It’s the holiday seasons, folks; the time of year for giving to our nearest and dearest. And for you, dear readers, we could think of no better gift than 100 of the sexiest bikini photos that this year had to offer! We’ve got some of everybody, and we do mean everybody. There might even been one of you in there. We’ve got that many!

Of course this uber-gallery is presided over by Beyonce, who ruled over our 2012 Bikini Awards just like she does with the rest of the known universe. In fact, she was able to defy time and win the coveted award with pics that were (technically) from 2011. That’s the power of Queen Bey! In addition to her, our list is chock-full of other pop queens like Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, and big-screen A-listers like Scarlett Johansson, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Alba. TV personalities Maria Menounos and Angela Simmons made a strong showing, too. We’ve also got shots from the usual suspects like reality star Kim Kardashian, never-shy Twitter mama Adrianne Curry and Coco, the Patron Saint of Donks.

Some of our very own VH1 stars like Mob Wives’ Drita D’Avanzo and Basketball Wives’ Evelyn Lozada put in an appearance, as did Hunger Games leading lady (and our personal favorite) Jennifer Lawrence. Professional hotties Kate Upton and Brooklyn Decker look straight out of the pages of Sports Illustrated, while Victoria’s Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima are simply heavenly.

So tear off the wrapping paper and dive in to our terrific 2012 retrospective of everyone’s favorite two-piece. Happy Holidays!

Angela Simmons Spends Her Birthday Trying To Stay Contained In Her Too Tiny Bikini

Angela Simmons struggles to stay contained in her too tiny bikini

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!

Angela Simmons Launches Her Last Minute Plan To Win The VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards

Angela Simmons on the beach in Miami

The final pairing for the VH1 Celebrity Bikini Awards is about to drop, but it looks like we have one more challenger looking for their shot at two-piece glory! Angela Simmons showed off her curves on South Beach yesterday, splashing around the waves in a stripped sea-green swimsuit. The 24-year old reality starlet apparently made the trip to Miami solo amid rumors of her split with boyfriend Romeo, who reportedly left her for actress-turned-singer A.J. Michalka.

Even if the story is true, it didn’t seem to get in the way of Angela’s fun in the sun as she happily strolled the shore with some friends. The vacation is a rare break from shooting Run’s House and Daddy’s Girls with sister Vanessa and legendary father Joseph Simmons of Run-DMC, as well as dealing with business at her shoe line, Pastry. Check out more from Angela’s bikini award-worthy break in the gallery below!

New York Fashion Week: Which Stars Are Taking Style Seriously?

It’s Day Two of New York Fashion Week, and the celebrity sightings are starting to pile up — no small feat, given that it’s also the beginning of Grammy Awards weekend in Los Angeles, and we’re sure those parties are tempting many a famous face away from this coast. But up at Lincoln Center, the stars who know that what they (and their stylists) choose for them to wear on the red carpet and on the way to the grocery store has an impact on their overall image, and, dare we say? their career as well. So, who have we seen in the front rows so far? Shailene Woodley (kind of surprising, since she told us she only wears second-hand clothing), Alexa Chung and Kristen Chenoweth took in the pretty purples and blues of the Honor show. Abigail Breslin, Megan Hilty and Angela Simmons watched the Cynthia Rowley show together. Kellan Lutz was with Matt Czuchry, Chris Lowell and the NY Knicks’ Landry Fields for Joseph Abboud. Recently resurfaced former child star Anna Chlumsky was backstage at Houghton. Taylor Momsen was snapped roaming in the lobby today. And then there are the afterparties. Vanessa Hudgens, Rose McGowan, Giants star Victor Cruz and Eve were among the revelers at the Leila Shams party last night. Come back all week long for more pics of the stars getting their style on! And check out the video below for stars weighing in on some looks that didn’t look so hot.

Pam Anderson To Kim Kardashian: PETA’s Love-Hate Relationship With Celebs

PETA has always had a love-hate relationships with celebrities. Some star studs like Justin Bieber have won the hearts of animal lovers by gracing PETA ads. Some celebs have even stripped down to step up for the cause of animal rights. However, there’s always those celebrities who blaze their own fur trail and send PETA in a hot rage like Kim Kardashian most recently did.

On the good side of the controversial organization are Pamela Anderson and Bob Harper, who recently teamed up with PETA to launch limited-edition U.S. postage stamps featuring famous vegetarians. From Gandhi to Ellen DeGeneres, now your bills and birthday cards can all feature Hollywood’s top 20 herbivores. But without even buying any stamps (snail mail, what’s that?), you can peruse our eye-popping, yet informative list of celebs who made PETA’s It list and hit list, along with the famous offenders who’ve since changed their ways.

Robert Kardashian And Angela Simmons: Depressing Date Night

Robert Kardashian Angela Simmons

Robert Kardashian and Angela Simmons have denied that they’re dating, and for their sake we hope they’re telling the truth. The pair spent some quality time together getting pedicures this week, which is about as romantic as slaughtering a pig together (another great date idea, guys!).

While the pair is definitely a match made in D-List reality TV heaven, we can’t support a couple that looks this bored together right off the bat. Also, what’s sexy and romantic about dead foot skin? (Answer: not much.)
