Celebs and their most memorable beach photos

Although each of the seasons has their own quirks, it’s fair to say that nothing comes close to the summer months. From the sun that beats down onto your face to all of the activities that you can enjoy, summer opens us up and sets us free – and we absolutely love it! Of course, we all have different ways to enjoy this season. There are some people who take themselves around Europe to find the true meaning of life, there are others who tan themselves in their backyard as they brush up on their revision for their first day of college, there are others who enjoy the great outdoors as they camp the days away, and there are others who find the perfect mix between work and play. However, it seems as though we’re not the only ones who get to enjoy this season.

Thanks to social media, we can now watch as some of our favorite celebrities enjoy the summer months. After all, they need it! While the fame and fortune of being a recognized face may be one of the most desirable things in the world, there are downsides to being in the public eye. With all eyes on their every move, celebrities find their days jam-packed with engagements, events, and work commitments that are both strenuous and intense. Sure, the fame and fortune definitely reimburse them for this work, but it still takes its toll. Because of this, celebrities around the world decide to shut off over the summer and enjoy a bit of free time. They turn their phones off, they leave their schedule free, and they book in quality time with those that are dearest to them. While it may not be summer just yet, it’s fair to say that these celebs are definitely ready for the summer…

Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton has definitely come a long way since her time on the teen classic TV series, The O.C – but we do have one little gripe with her. How the heck does she still look exactly the same?! At 32 years old, Mischa still looks like her teenage self, and we wish we would just share her fountain of youth with the rest of us. Thanks to her fame, fortune, and her love for the beaches in Orange County, Mischa likes to spend her free time by the ocean, and it’s fair to say that she rocks the summer look. This lace maxi dress perfectly matches the white swimsuit underneath, and she’s topped the whole thing off with statement necklaces and a Western-style hat.


Is there anything Rihanna can’t pull off? It seems this pop Princess is not only one of the most talented musical artists in the world, but she’s also one of the coolest. With her tattoos, her eclectic style, her statement jewelry, that awesome headscarf and an attitude that we all wish we had, Rihanna seems to rock the summer look. Whether she’s chilling by the pool or attending the latest beach party, she always dresses to impress and makes us insanely jealous of her life. On this day, in particular, Rihanna just wanted to top up her tan… But that doesn’t mean she can’t still shine bright like a diamond.

Miranda Kerr

Whenever we go to the beach, the sweat drips off our forehead, the saltwater causes all kinds of knots in our hair that we just can’t undo, and our hats just end up blowing away in the wind. Perhaps this is why Miranda Kerr is holding onto hers? Without any sweat on her forehead or knotted hair, Miranda Kerr knows just how to work the beach-chic look. After all, it takes a certain kind of person to wear pearls and lipstick at the beach, and Miranda Kerr is one of those people.

Emily Ratajkowski

It seems that there isn’t a day that goes by that Emily Ratajkowski isn’t in the news for her awesome outfits. From gorgeous gowns that grace the red carpet, and fashionable and revealing outfits that are perfect for her notorious selfies, through to the summer-ready wardrobe that has given us so much clothing envy over the course of her career. Things got even worse for us when Emily took to the water in this adorable blue bardot crop top, as she topped the whole thing off with a retro hat and shades. Ah, she’s perfect.

Anna Kendrick

Thanks to her Pitch Perfect performance in the epic movie musical, Anna Kendrick is one of our favorite people in the world. She’s downright hilarious, her singing voice is immense, and she’s just a cool gal. However, it seems as though Anna also has it in her to join the club of A-list celebrities who rock a bikini at the beach. During one sandy getaway, Anna couldn’t stop herself from posting this wet and wild photograph of her frolicking in the water on what looks like a tropical island. We don’t blame her.

Jessica Alba

As one of the most famous actresses of the last decade or so, Jessica Alba has built up an impressive reputation for herself. Because of this, she has been able to star in some of the greatest movies of all time, and been able to attend the best A-list parties around. Yet, all of this work and no play leaves little time for adventure, and Jessica just had to get away during this beach vacation. With this floral and geometric beach dress and hat combination, Jessica Alba definitely would have scooped the best-dressed award here.

Jaime King

Although we love to look towards the future and guess what’s going to happen next, the fashion world just can’t seem to move away from the vintage look – and we’re definitely here for it! During one epic beach adventure, the actress Jaime King took the old vintage look and made it look modern with this high-necked swimsuit, complete with silver sandals and bug-eye sunglasses. Top that off with a tight bun, and she’s onto a winner! After all, doesn’t everyone look fabulous when they’re making sandcastles?

Shay Mitchell

As one of the stars of the drama show, Pretty Little Liars, Shay Mitchell is a fan favorite for millions across the globe. As if that wasn’t enough, she’s also a model, actress, and businesswoman – as if we needed any more reason to be jealous of her! During this beach vacation trip, Shay decided to pull out all of the stops and ensure that we were at the tip of the jealousy spectrum. She showed off her flawless physique in this tie-bikini and short combo, and it seems that even the wind was on her side.

Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss is most famous for being Victoria’s Secret model, so it should come as no surprise to learn that she can pull off any form of swimwear – including an all-in-one swimsuit! Although she hid her face during this epic beach selfie, we can still tell that Karle is one of the most beautiful models and actresses in the world. We’re not sure how she managed to find a practically deserted beach to take this photo, but we wish we had taken a trip to the beach that day!


It’s fair to say that Beyoncé could be wearing a potato sack in the middle of a scrap yard and she would still look absolutely flawless and pull the whole thing off. Yes, the Queen Bey doesn’t need to remind her followers just how incredible she is, but she tends to do it anyway with photos that rack up hundreds of thousands of views. It seems that summer is the month for Beyoncé to shine even more than she usually does because only she could pull off swimming goggles and make them look cool.

Lea Michele

Although she may have played a slightly irritating character on the teen musical show, Glee, we can forgive Lea Michele for this – because it shows just how amazing she is as an actress! Since rising to fame on the show, Michele has become one of the most famous people to watch on social media, and she has allowed her fans to lap up her beautiful selfies every single day. On this particular day, Lea decided to win us all over with this incredible sunset selfie. She is so ready for summer.

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood rose to fame when she dug her keys into the side of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive, and she’s never looked back since. While she may have been a little quiet since her accident in November 2017, Carrie has maintained a huge presence on social media, and fans flock in their thousands to catch up with her life. Because of this, they were over the moon when this blonde beauty shared a selfie of herself catching a few rays in her backyard. She’s flirty in florals!

Danielle Brooks

Danielle Brooks is known for her role on the Netflix prison drama, Orange is the New Black, but it’s fair to say that she has also made a name outside of the show for her promotion of body confidence. After all, you just need to look at this photo to see that she oozes confidence! During one vacation boat trip, Danielle decided to go simple with a black swimsuit and black lace cover-up, but she is totally rocking it. In fact, that stance says it all. She is totally feeling herself.

Kourtney Kardashian

We love nothing more than keeping up with what the Kardashians are up to, and Kourtney Kardashian is definitely one of the most dramatic of the two. However, it seems that she found the perfect place to chill out during this beach vacation, as she looks totally chill on this sun lounger. With a peach swimsuit that slits down the middle and aviator sunglasses, Kourtney looks like the kind of Bond Girl we will see in the next installment of the action franchise, James Bond. It’s Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian.

Blake Lively

Since the days of her playing Serena Van Der Woodsen in the teen drama, Gossip Girl, we have always been obsessed with Blake Lively’s hair. And her face. And her style. And basically everything about her. However, it seems this celeb is never as beautiful as it is when the salt gets in her hair and the freckles form on her face… because this photograph is absolutely incredible! While she looks great strutting the red carpet, we have a feeling that she is a beach baby at heart. She’s a natural.

Jessica Hart

The Hart sisters are two of the most famous models to come out of the land Down Under, and it’s pretty easy to see why. With her impressive physique, her luscious locks and her beach-ready personality, Jessica Hart even looks perfect moments after coming out of the ocean! It takes a true beauty to make her way out of the water without coughing and spluttering, pulling the bottom half of your bikini out of where it shouldn’t and looking beautiful – so kudos to her. It’s really not easy, you know.

Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo has become a bit of an American sweetheart. As a television presenter, businesswoman and entrepreneur, Olivia is perfect in every way and keeps our jealousy levels up high when she posts shots of her life on social media. During one well-deserved vacation, Olivia became a beach babe when she donned a form-fitting swimsuit, complete with a giant hat that is always appropriate by the seaside, and large sunglasses that look as cool as ever. It’s the leg that gets us. How is she so graceful?! It’s just not fair.

Kendall Jenner

There’s probably not a person on this world who hasn’t heard of Kendall Jenner. Not only is she one of the most famous supermodels in the world right now, but she is also of Keeping Up With The Kardashians fame. Basically, she’s kind of a big deal. When she’s not walking the catwalk, Kendall loves to live it up by the ocean – and she certainly knows how to dress for the occasion. Her beautiful pink bikini matches her Flamingo floatie, and she looks just like a movie star…

Ariel Winter

Ariel Winter is one of the most famous women on Instagram, and she is constantly updating her fans with brand new selfies and photographs of her life. Of course, we lap it up! During one of her many vacations, the Modern Family star decided to show us all a slice of her beach life. Her flattering black swimsuit perfectly matches her rockin’ hairstyle, and she looks beautifully natural even though she is wearing her iconic false lashes. A boat, crystal clear waters, and food – what more could you want?!
