It’s that time of year again! Whether you’re eyeing them as diet-and-workout inspiration or ogling for pure pleasure, we know you love a good photo of a celebrity in a bikini. This year’s Bikini Awards, celebrating the hard work our favorite stars have put into those flauntable curves and muscles, kicks off with a collection of former teen queens — and a current one for good measure.

Some of these ladies — Jennie Garth, Rachel Bilson, Rachel Ward, Ashley Tisdale and Alexa Vega — once helped us cope with the awkwardness of our own teen years. Some — Nina Dobrev, Ashley Benson, Jennifer Lawrence, Hayden Panettiere and Naya Rivera — transcend their young adult characters to reach fans of all ages. One, Serena Williams, has always been an idol for folks of all ages. And another, Bella Thorne, has a bright future of bikini days ahead.
Why are we still typing all these words? It’s time for you to decide which of these ladies is your favorite. The 2013 Bikini Awards will run all month, but this round of voting will end at 11 pm ET this Sunday, August 11.
