Selfies have become an everyday event in a lot of people’s lives. Snapping shots of yourself looking like you’re having fun. Hob knobbing with famous people or with friends and families has become the go-to way of making it look like you’re living to envy. For many celebrities selfies seem to be even more important than some of the most self-obsessed youngsters of today. If you want to create or extend your fanbase in a lot of cases it helps to keep them updated on your life so they won’t forget you and let them into your life so they can both relate and worship you. It just so happens that in a lot of cases the people who get famous happen to be pretty damn hot which make their selfie material a whole lot more appealing than your average subject.
As with similar lists in the past, while putting together our list of the hottest female celebrity selfies of 2016, our principal rule was that the focus of the photo must be famous. Women who work in music, acting, wrestling or modeling were considered equally as long as the woman in question managed to make a name for herself in that medium. We also limited ourselves to one entry per celebrity but we’re not holding back from including women from our first list again. With that aside let’s take a look at some pretty ladies. Of course, the obvious caveat is that we only looked at selfies that were first published in the year 2016 to our knowledge.
20 McKayla Maroney
One of the Fierce Five, otherwise known as the 2012 US women’s gymnastics team, McKayla won a gold and silver medal at the event while gaining the admiration and attraction of people across the world. Arguably equally known for the meme that sprung from a photo of her where she looked less than impressed, she may have retired from her sport at a young age but her fame hasn’t gone anywhere. This stand out photo of McKayla wearing a tight and cleavage-baring shirt landed on her Instagram in 2016.
19 Nicki Minaj
One of the most famous rappers of either gender today, Nicki is an award-winning performer whose mantle could be highlighted by MTV, BET, Billboard and AMA trophies. Having released two massive albums that made it to the top of the charts, she has since expanded her brand by acting in movies and serving as a judge on the twelfth season of American Idol. Seen here at the perfect angle, the fact that she’s wearing nothing but a bra up top has given us a tantalizing view of her bountiful chest.
18 Alessandra Ambrosio
We know, we know, it’s shocking that one of the most famous models alive today can be the subject of a super sexy photo. A Brazilian model who was tapped to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel, one of the most coveted gigs in the industry, she has also worked for companies like Ralph Lauren and Christian Dior. Also working regularly on television via guest spots on shows like Entourage, Project Runway, Gossip Girl, America’s Next Top Model, and How I Met Your Mother, Alessandra looks great wherever she goes. Here her bikini top looks great but it is her perfectly placed necklace and the goods that it totally draws the eye to which makes this pic so glorious.
17 Kelly Brook
Prior to Batman v Superman coming out there was a great deal of uproar over Gal Gadot’s casting as Wonder Woman due to her small figure. Looking at the massive chest of Kelly cradled in the legendary costume, we totally get what a lot of people were looking for, even though Gal did a great job. An English glamor model whose alluring figure made her stand out in a sea of gorgeous women, Kelly has managed to become a famous woman across the world. Although she has appeared in movies like Piranha 3D, Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, and many other, she seems to lack the dramatic chops to play a superhero but we’d love to Kelly in other heroic outfits as well.
16 Emily Ratajkowski
When the music video for Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines came out the idea may have been to advertise the song but for us, it was all about this beautiful brunette cavorting in various stages of undress. A model that went on to appear in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, she has clearly become one of the most famous models alive today. Additionally branching out into acting, she has appeared in Entourage, Gone Girl, We Are Your Friends and The Spoils of Dying. Seen here with her body covered only by her limbs, Emily's elegant face, and tight body are simply superb.
15 Chrissy Teigen
Having posed for Sports Illustrated, Maxim, Olay, and far too many other companies to name here, this American has legions of fans. Working for shows like Deal or No Deal, America’s Next Top Model, Inside Amy Schumer, The Mindy Project, and Lip Sync Battle which she co-hosts, she has also become multi-faceted. Looking at this photo of Chrissy it seems as though she may be the result of a group of scientists coming together to create the personification of a model. A shot where she looks perfectly made up while simultaneously somehow looking like she may have recently rolled out of bed, she is super sexy but doesn’t look like she is trying to be.
14 Eva Marie
We easily could have populated a great deal of this list with just photos of this WWE employee. A cast member of their reality show Total Divas since the first episode despite zero wrestling experience at the time, it is abundantly obvious that she was hired by the company due simply to her looks. Even though a large portion of the internet wrestling community dislikes Eva due to her dubious wrestling ability and we totally get it, she is pretty awesome at being hated and seems like she’ll be around a long time. Let’s just say it; she is hot here wearing a bikini and short shorts which leaves the majority of her body showing and makes her bronzed boobs look inviting.
13 Selena Gomez
A former Disney child star that first became famous due to her role in Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena’s acting career has been highlighted by movies like Hotel Transylvania and Spring Breakers since then. Arguably a bigger music star than anything else, her singing career similarly began at an early age but in the last few years has become a much bigger deal than ever before. An innocent enough looking photo, it is the angelic looks of one of the biggest stars of this age that have earned this pic which Selena uploaded to Instagram a place here.
12 Adrienne Bailon
A member of two girl groups, 3LW, and The Cheetah Girls, the latter of which received three Disney Channel Original Movies, she has stated that she plans to release a Spanish-language solo album. Also acting in shows like That’s So Raven, The Suite Life of Zach & Cody as well as movies like Coach Carter, she currently serves as one of the hosts of the talk show The Real. We’ve just got to ask the important question. Is there anything sexier than a wet woman? Seen here with water dripping off her torso, Adrienne looks supremely sensuous.
11 Miranda Kerr
We can only imagine that there is a committee somewhere that gets together and decides from the pick of the modeling litter who gets to become Victoria’s Secrets Angels. If this clandestine crew truly does exist in 2007, when Miranda was chosen, we can only assume that discussion consisted of someone pulling out a photo as hot as this and then they adjourned. Wearing a vibrant red dress or top that is cut down the middle of her chest, we’re not sure what event she is about to attend but we’re pretty sure everybody will be staring.
10 CJ “Lana” Perry
Another member of WWE’s roster, CJ Perry, better known by her persona Lana, spent years as a singer, model, actor, and dancer before she began the wrestling career that has made her into a star. Predominantly known as the manager of Rusev, her real life fiance as well as a short-term association with Dolph Ziggler, she has recently begun to take part in matches herself. Seen here on a rooftop wearing lingerie, this snap could never fit in as a part of WWE’s current PG product but instantly won a spot on this list.
9 Demi Lovato
A former child star who has struggled with her self-image, Demi looks about as comfortable in her skin here as anyone could. An actor and singer who did both as a performer in the movie Camp Rock and its sequel, she continues to act but is principally known as a musician today. Having released five albums since 2008, her last record was certified two times platinum and gold in separate countries. This shot, which Demi shared on her Instagram, was taken behind the scenes of an Allure Magazine session. Dressed in her skivvies, she wanted to share what she looked like without the benefit of professional lighting and Photoshop which serves to make her all the more attractive in our eyes.
8 Kylie Jenner
The youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Kylie, like her siblings, is mostly famous simply for being famous. A reality TV star that has created a cosmetics line, she also has an app that reached number one on iTunes store and at one point was among the ten most followed people on Instagram, meaning she has a unique career. Seen here wearing a black and yellow bikini that has her and her sister’s names splashed all over it, the robe that covers a little bit more of her makes the image seem a great deal more taboo and hotter.
7 Nikki Bella
The final WWE wrestler to make our list, Nikki joined the company alongside her twin sister after taking part in their Diva Search. Signed to a contract despite losing the competition, she has worked hard to improve dramatically inside the ring which earned her a run with the recently retired Divas Championship which lasted longer than any other in history. Serving as the face of Total Divas, a reality show based on the women who work for the WWE, she and her sister Brie, as well as the rest of their family and their famous beaus, will star in the spin-off Total Bellas. Seen here in a skin tight catsuit which shows off some incredible cleavage, it took us several seconds to even notice that she’s sporting a neck brace.
6 Ariel Winter
When Ariel Winter began playing Alex Dunphy, one of the ensemble of stars that make up the main cast of Modern Family, she was supposed to be a geeky character that was ignored by boys. Things have certainly changed as of late. An accomplished voice actor who has taken on seventeen roles to date where you could only hear her, that fact may cause an ever increasing amount of love struck fans to complain. Seen here wearing a top which hides little of her large chest, she also made sure to take the photo from an angle that ensured, even more flesh was on display.
5 Ashley Graham
By far and away the most famous plus-sized model ever, Ashley became the first woman with real curves to ever grace Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue cover. Signed by Ford Models, she went on to appear in YM, Vogue and Bust magazines. Also working for brands like Bloomingdales, Addition Elle, Liz Claiborne, Macy’s and Nordstrom, among others, she was certain to make the garb she wore look fantastic. Seen here wearing a blue bra and pantie set, her breasts may be almost entirely covered but we love seeing how immense they seem to be and her hips look lovely to grab onto.
4 Rita Ora
A Brit who has made her name as an actor more than anything else, Rita's first major release which contained the hits R.I.P. and How We Do (Party) hit the top of UK’s charts immediately after its debut. A coach on The Voice UK and a judge on The X Factor at various points, her obvious looks made her a great addition to both shows and the movies Fast & Furious 6, Southpaw as well as the Fifty Shades franchise. Seen here laying out on a deck while wearing a bikini, the cut at the front of her bottoms leaves far less to the imagination than most bikinis which is ever so enticing.
3 Arianny Celeste
Who knew that you could become famous for being a ring girl? In the case of Arianny, she was simply hired to be a hottie that walked around the UFC’s octagon while carrying a card which had the round’s number emblazoned on it. They likely could have never guessed that she would become the first famous female the company was associated with based on the gig and appearances in magazines like Maxim, FHM, Sports Illustrated and Playboy. Wearing a pair of panties and a robe that is hardly closed, it feels like we’re getting a far more intimate view of her body than even her fully nude pictorials.
2 Kim Kardashian with Emily Ratajkowski
A couple of women, Emily and Kim, who’ve proven time and time again that they are proud of their bodies and comfortable with showing them off, this is their statement against those who’d shame them. Although the photo was quite controversial and debates raged as to if the women truly are feminists as they self-identify, we celebrate anyone who can embrace their own body. Knowing that behind those black bars are two ravishing racks is pretty sexy but it is the defiance that both women are demonstrating to those who want their boobs put away that we’re really enjoying.
