The holidays often mean too much turkey, overextended credit and dealing with your dysfunctional family while “Baby It’s Cold Outside” plays on a continuous loop. How much cranberry and Michael Buble does one person need? Only the lucky among us get to take tropical beach holidays where we can shed our winter layers as we lay back with a cold one, watching the ladies walk by.
To take your mind off of shoveling snow and the fact that you are back to work, we’ve got a compilation of the 11 ladies who shook up the beach during the festive season. None of these lovely ladies took the holidays for granted, partying it up at beaches all over the world, including Thailand, Brazil and the Caribbean. These eleven beauties were not shy to sport sexy bikinis, large celebrity-style sunglasses and their favourite hot friends on their arms. From paddle boarding to lounging on boats and poolside, each one of these eleven tanned and toned women took their vacations and their swimwear very seriously. Take a look and enjoy.
11. Alessandra Ambrosio
Since you can never get enough of Victoria Secret supermodels in bikinis on vacation The Richest is pleased to delight you with photos of Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio on vacation in her home of Brazil over the holidays. No matter what she wears on this vacation, you know she is going to look smokin’ hot! From string bikinis to yoga wear to sexy dresses, this lady aims to please. Don’t forget to take in the amazing scenery and her super-hot friends while browsing her Instagram page and drooling. Alessandra says Brazil “makes me happy” and she definitely shows it!
10. Rita Ora
British celebrity Rita Ora did her New Year celebrations up right in Miami, Florida. Sporting a teeny weeny polka dot bikini poolside and designer duds in the ocean, Rita looked ultra-fabulous and incredibly hot. She flaunted her week-long vacation on Instagram, partying in the hot tub all day and dinner and dancing at night. Each day brought a new look for the body-blessed starlet whose string bikinis and plunging necklines left very little to the imagination. The Body on Me singer definitely knows what to do with that body of hers!
9. Selena Gomez
Justin Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez seems to have long forgotten about him while partying with friends over the New Year. While Selena says she is on a social media break and purposely left her phone behind during this vacation to “be present”, she uploaded this photo of her and her hot friends posing rather seductively for the camera anyway. No longer a Disney star, Selena has grown up in a big way in the past year. We hope to see more of her lady-like bikini shots in 2016. Hopefully her social media break is now over and we won’t miss out on more moments like this.
8. Rebecca Romijn
At 43, the formerly acclaimed “most beautiful woman in the world” still rocks a bikini like no one’s business while vacationing with her family in a tropical paradise over the holidays. Being a mom of twins and wife of Jerry O’Connell hasn’t stopped this pretty lady’s fitness regime! Looking stunning as she ran with her kids on the beach and performed acrobatics with her hubby, Rebecca rocked a two-piece almost as well as her husband rocked that Speedo. Celebrating 2016, as well as the twin’s seventh birthday, the blonde bombshell and Librarian star definitely made the most of it.
7. Olivia Wilde
Vacationing in Hawaii with her family this December, 31-year-old Olivia Wilde is no worse for wear after having a baby just a year ago. The new mom definitely changes the definition of “mom-bod” in the tiny and colourful bikinis she wore throughout the vacation. With an upcoming wedding to Jason Sudeikis and her new television show Vinyl about to premiere, the gorgeous actress didn’t let that stop her from having some me time. Olivia used those strong abs and sculpted arms to take in some stand-up paddle boarding with her fiancé. She looks like she loved every moment of it too!
6. Michelle Rodriguez
While Michelle Rodriguez may have purposely forgotten her razor on her new year trip to Cancun, Mexico, her sculpted abs and thrown-together beach look more than make up for it. The Furious 7 star spent time with family this Christmas before stripping down into a white bikini top and boy shorts for a swim in the ocean.
5. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Picture it: New Year’s Eve on a beautiful Thai beach with Jason Statham, former Victoria Secret model and one of FHM’s 2015 hottest women, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Her trademark lips and slamming bod were on view as she entered the water off the coast of Thailand with her partner of almost six years in a tiny peach two-piece. Judging by the serene look on their faces, their holidays went smashingly. Jason Statham wished his fans a happy New Year on his Facebook page, flaunting the sunshine and palm trees with a nice close-up. Bringing in the New Year with Rosie in Thailand Jason has definitely started 2016 right!
4. Shay Mitchell
Canadian cutie Shay Mitchell rang in the new year in style in Jamaica, flaunting yellow and black swimwear in honour of the country, dubbing her holiday vacation “#shaymaica”. The Pretty Little Liars starlet swam, partied and floated the days away on James Bond beach with friends, making sure to document her gorgeousness each day on her Instagram account. Stating it was her “best New Year’s ever” and that she had big dreams for 2016, Shay kept it real with a posse of friends at her rented AirBnb taking in the sights and sounds of the island of which she says she never wants to leave.
3. April Love Geary
While model April Love Geary isn’t known for much else than being Robin Thicke’s main squeeze, her amazing body might have something else to say about that. Vacationing with Robin in St. Bart’s over the New Year, the bootylicious 20-year had no qualms flaunting every inch of her not-so-wholesome goodness. Not too many people can look hot in a storm trooper mask, but April manages this just fine in a sexy bikini that doesn’t hide any of her assets. The wavy-haired beauty was all smiles as she frolicked with friends and drinks in the gorgeous waters. This girl has no problem being noticed!
2. Christie Brinkley
Not many women over 60 can be placed on a hottest women on the beach list, but Christie Brinkley has definitely scored herself a place here. Vacationing in Turks and Caicos with her family over Christmas and New Year’s, Christie used that very fit body of hers to take in some paddle boarding, swimming with dolphins and with snorkeling over the holidays. Being 61 doesn’t keep this hottie down as she looks no worse for wear in bikinis and even covered in a rashguard. Her vegan diet and won beauty line might take some of the credit for the blonde’s amazing looks.
1. Emmy Rossum
With the season six premiere of Shameless a few short days away, Emmy Rossum used her holidays to read and relax on the beach of some island paradise, looking as hot as ever. After volunteering at the L.A. mission on Christmas Eve, Emmy jetted herself away to where the waters are crystal blue and her bikinis are polka-dotted. She spent the holiday and New Year’s Eve with friends, including the beautiful Dorie Golkin Smith and the pair look like they had a blast! Emmy’s metamorphosis into Fiona Gallagher in just a few days is highly anticipated after seeing these beach shots!
