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!

Heidi Klum Proves She Didn’t Have An “Awkward Phase” By Tweeting A Gorgeous Teenage Modeling Pic

Most of us have that painful period during our teen years that we spend the rest of our life trying to forget. It’s forever known as “the awkward phase”, and photos from the era are purged from family albums in a manner that would do Stalin proud. Well, it seems that Heidi Klum never had that awkward phase. This would explain why she’s a world famous supermodel and we are not.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel tweeted a photo over the weekend showing herself as a fresh faced (and GORGEOUS) 19-year old on one of her early modeling dates. “Wow! Check out this picture from 1992,” she wrote. “One of my very first photo shoots. This is my original hair color!” Though still a teen, Klum still stares down the lens like a pro. Must be the genes. Contrary to what Maybelline wants you to think, she’s definitely born with it. And so are many other super models! Check out the gallery below for some early pix of Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Upton, and tons more lovely ladies who have literally never taken a bad photo in their entire lives. Bask in their photogenic-ness!

Coachella Turns Into CelebrityVille For A Second Weekend In A Row

Coachella went down for its second weekend in Indio, California, and as expected, the stars flocked to it again. Last weekend had its fair share of controversies attached to it. Not to the festival per se, but to the many celebrities who attended. What was Lindsay Lohan doing there against her judge’s advice? Who was the mystery dude Emma Watson was with? And what exactly was Rihanna smoking? So many questions. No answers just yet. But in contrast, this last weekend of Coachella seemed easy-peasy.

Some celebrities, like Dita von Teese and Busy Philipps, showed up on both Saturday and Sunday. Dita was also spotted hanging out with pal Kelly Osbourne, and her purple hair. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was seen rocking out to Florence Welch. Twilighters Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed (with hubby Paul McDonald) were there, as well as ex-Twilighter Rachelle Lefevre. Joe Jonas hatted up, while Joe Manganiello (and yay for this) took his shirt off. But the cutest photographs by far, were of Alicia Silverstone with her son Bear Blu. Top marks for the baby-size noise-cancelling headphones! Look out for all of the action in our gallery.

Birthday Girl Miranda Kerr Helps Keep April Hot!

Screw June, July and August; April is officially the hottest month of the year! Why? Because it’s the month that brought us searingly sexy ladies like Alessandra Ambrosio, Brooklyn Decker and Rosie Huntington-Whitley. But that’s not all. Today Miranda Kerr steps up to the birthday plate, as the Aussie  hottie and Victoria’s Secret angel turns 29 today! She’ll probably be celebrating with celeb husband Orlando Bloom and baby boy Flynn, but we’ll be right here celebrating with some of her hottest bikini photos of all time. Check out the gallery below to see more of her, and her fellow April birthday-mates. Who do you think is the sexiest April baby of all time? Let us know in the poll!

Birthday Girls Brooklyn Decker, Alessandra Ambrosio, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Miranda Kerr Make April Sizzle

Oooweee. It’s time to crack a window and grab a tall glass of water; you’ll need that cool spring breeze right now. Some of the hottest women to ever grace the Victoria’s Secret runway (shoot to ever walk the Earth) were born in April, making for a very different kind of heatwave than the kind we experience in July.

Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio turned 31 on April 11, and has more to celebrate than her own birthday this year. The original spokeswoman for PINK, who walked the runway just three months after giving birth to her daughter Anja, is expecting her second child with Jamie Mazur sometime this year.

Model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker has been quite the busy lady. The 5’9″ blonde, who appeared alongside Adam Sandler in last year’s Just Go With It, is spending her 25th birthday today (April 12) while traipsing the globe to promote her latest flick, Battleship.

Brit beauty Rosie Huntington-Whiteley went from strutting around in her undies for Victoria’s Secret and Burberry to fleeing evil aliens in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Rosie turns 24 on April 18, and you can pay homage to her bday by perusing her pics in Vogue Brazil’s April issue.

Last but certainly not least in the looks department is Orlando Bloom’s smoking wife Miranda Kerr. The Aussie model and mum of 1-year-old Flynn acquired quite some fame being the first Australian model to become a Victoria’s Secret angel. We can’t say we’re surprised she was chosen as the first. Miranda turns 29 on the 20th.

In the spirit of a catwalk showdown, we’re putting these heavenly creatures in direct competition with each other. We’re asking you to select which April birthday girl is hottest. Are you up for this decision? Here’s a gallery of Alessandra, Brooklyn, Rosie and Miranda to make your choice a little easier (actually, probably not):

Your Mega Peek Into The 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

We all know that the Vanity Fair Oscar Party is almost as big as the Oscar ceremony itself. And just as brights were a major Oscars 2012 trend, it was the same as the party. Rosie Huntington-Whitely wore a juicy, tangerine Antonio Berardi dress while Cameron Diaz went more orange with a Victoria Beckham number. Kate Upton, a pregnant Molly Sims, Salma Hayek, Abbie Cornish and Diane Kruger all wore shades of crimson.

It’s just a straight-up roll call of celebrities here: Elizabeth Olsen in black Christian Dior, Sofia Vergara in a white Robert Cavalli column, Brooklyn Decker in nude, beaded Valentino and Selena Gomez in Dolce & Gabbana. See what we mean? We’re not too sure about  Zoe Saldana in her black, sheer Marios Schwab or January Jones in her Wes Gordon green-and-burgundy confused dress. Or Elizabeth Banks and her green-and-blue feathered Chadwick Bell dress.  Jennifer Lopez wore the same designer as her Oscars dress, but this plunging, sparkling, plum version was even sexier.

Olivier Martinez’s Life-Long Search For The Perfect Woman Is Over; Halle Wins

Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry might be headed down the aisle soon if rumors are true, but Halle certainly isn’t Olivier’s first stunningly gorgeous lady friend. Or his first Academy Award-winning lovah. Angelina Jolie, Mira Sorvino and Kylie Minogue are just a few of the beautiful, talented, internationally known women Olivier has wooed in his lifetime. Ex Minogue even tweeted, “Congrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding” today, rather than, say, “Burn in hell, Olivier #forever,” which seems like a great sign.

Now, we know we’re not genetically perfect or have Oscars lining or trophy case or anything, but if our ex had even so much as held hands Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, we’d have to hang up our dating pants right then and there. But this is Halle Berry, people! Not even starring in Catwoman can break her stride. Not even Catwoman.

Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Robsten Top Another List, Because Why Not?

The folks at Forbes certainly know what they’re doing. Usually, we turn to them for the big lists, like the Celebrity 100, the World’s Most Powerful Women or the Hip-Hop Cash Kings. But those take a lot of work, and sometimes, they just need something fast and easy (we’re just assuming here, ’cause you know, we’d never be so gratuitous about our lists). So, they do things like this week’s Hollywood’s Top-Earning On-Screen Couples, which is topped by Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, followed by Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson.

We’re very happy to see the Harry Potter and Twilight stars at the top of the list, natch. But it does feel a bit like the editors sat down and said, “What kind of list can we do that will feature the stars of Harry Potter and Twilight, and maybe also Pirates of the Caribbean and Transformers?” They admit themselves that the whole thing is based on numbers from Box Office Mojo (the total earnings from movies with the stars as a couple from the last five years).

Still, here we are, looking at the list. So they’ve hooked us again! We’ll give you the full list below, but also we want to come up with some kind of challenge for the Forbes editors, just to make sure they stay on top of their game. Maybe the next feature should be something like America’s Highest-Grossing Puppet Shows or Top-Earning Subway Mariachi Groups. That‘ll take a little shoe leather.
