Being a celebrity in our modern society is a very interesting thing. Making sure that you stay in the spotlight has always been the currency for those that are trying to remain famous enough in order to make a career out of it. However, that has never been the case for today. As such, most of them, especially those on the rise, will do what they can to remain in the spotlight, including taking part in important interviews and constantly putting out new material. In today’s internet-obsessed world, however, there is no doubt that one of the biggest tools in the arsenal of these people has to be social media where the rest of us can see their extravagant lives.
Considering that these public accounts have become one of the biggest instruments of communication for the rich and famous, many of them are constantly uploading selfies for our enjoyment. We are more than happy to see that continue since they have brought us some of the sexiest images of many of these ladies we have ever seen. As such, there have been many awe-inspiring images taken by famous and beautiful women of themselves already this year, much to our delight. Coming to that conclusion is what inspired us to put together this list of the fifteen hottest celebrity selfies of 2017, so far.
As with similar lists in the past, while putting together our list of the hottest female celebrity selfies of 2017, 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 other lists again. Of course, the obvious caveat is that we only looked at selfies that were first published in the year 2017 to our knowledge. With that aside let’s take a look at some pretty ladies.
15 Candice Swanepoel
One of the biggest models to come to prominence this millennium, Candice Swanepoel was born in South Africa and has since taken over the world’s most superficial business. She has walked runways on behalf of designers like Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Dolce and Gabbana, Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel, and so much more that it feels like we could go on and on. On top of that, she has appeared in advertising campaigns for some of the biggest companies in the world, including Diesel, Tom Ford, Juicy Couture, Guess, and many more. A Victoria’s Secret Angel who has been included in lists of the hottest women in the world put together for magazines like Maxim and FHM, it is safe to say that she has a long list of dedicated fans out there. This relatively innocent image posted by her on social media earlier this year doesn’t expose much of her skin but it does show just how exquisite her looks truly are.
14 Jennifer Lopez
One of the biggest stars of the last few decades, people may forget it now but there was a time Jennifer Lopez seemed to be pretty much everywhere in the pop culture world. A mainstay of tabloids for her various romantic relationships with men like Diddy, Ben Affleck, and Marc Anthony, the majority of her attention still revolved around her professional achievements. The music world welcomed her due to many hit songs including “I’m Real,” “If You Had My Love,” “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” and “Jenny From the Block,” to name only a fraction. On top of that, she was a big film star because of playing parts in movies like Out of Sight, Maid in Manhattan, Anaconda, U Turn, The Cell, and The Wedding Planner. Pictured here sitting at what appears to be a makeup station, she managed to get almost all of her body in frame and we can only applaud her effort.
13 Ashley Graham
Over the years, there have been a number of models that have found enough success that they’ve actually become famous to the average Joe in their own right. Up until the last few years, however, they’ve all had one thing in common—slender and fit bodies. Then came Ashley Graham, the first plus-sized model to appear on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and who has broken the mold of an image-obsessed industry much to the happiness of many. A very curvy woman who possesses a body that is built to tantalize, she has proven time and time again that any box that she's placed in are far too repressive to hold her back. In this photo of her taken earlier this year, she has allowed a robe to hold her incredible body at bay much to the chagrin of some. On the other hand, we can probably assume that under it, she had very little on. We can only hope nothing at all, which is very arousing to imagine.
The first woman making her living in the wrestling world that is included on this list, Lana is far from the last, which is a testament to the work the athletes in that world put into their bodies. Principally known as the valet, manager, and wife of the Bulgarian Brute, Rusev, she serves as the perfect counterpoint to his imposing presence. A beautiful blonde who typically comes to the ring in a pair of heels and buttoned-down clothing, she hints at her s*xuality by almost always wearing very short skirts that show off her incredible legs. In this bathroom selfie, we don’t get to see an overabundance of her flesh but we are ever so pleased with the hint of cleavage and her lovely curves that are on display.
11 Arianny Celeste
If you aren’t familiar with the concept of a ring girl, they are women that are paid to show up at fighting events and walk around the ring or octagon carrying a card with the round number on it. Meant to inform the crowd of the round the fight is going into, they are also designed to entertain in their own way. However, as far as we know, there is only one ring girl that has turned that gig into a star-making one for themselves, Arianny Celeste. Arianny is hot enough that people looked forward to her appearances almost every single time. Going on to be featured by Playboy Magazine and tapped to host a show called UFC Ultimate Insider, those are but two examples of the way this gorgeous gal has expanded her career. Pictured here in a bikini that shows off her incredible body, there is no doubt in our mind that she would stand out wherever she goes, including in the selfie game.
10 Nikki Bella
At one time, the focal point of the WWE Women’s division as a whole, Nikki Bella is the longest reigning WWE Divas Champion ever. First introduced as an arm candy for male wrestlers and celebrity guest hosts alongside her twin sister Brie, the pair managed to break out, create unique personas for themselves, and become big stars. Now starring in the WWE “reality” shows like Total Divas and its spin-off, Total Bellas, Nikki remains one of the most popular figures in the WWE as a whole today. Seen here in a selfie where she's wearing her ring gear, her outfit is innocent enough to get away with in the PG world of today’s WWE, but salacious enough to get people going and belong here.
9 Kate Beckinsale
A British actress that seemed to come out of nowhere when she was cast in her film debut, Much Ado About Nothing, a Shakespeare adaptation, it made a name for her among casting agents. Since those early days, Kate Beckinsale has gone on to play pivotal parts in films like Emma, The Last Days of Disco, Brokedown Palace, The Aviator, Click, and most notably, the Underworld franchise. Now one of the world’s biggest action stars, especially when it comes to women, she has been in movies like the remake of Total Recall, Whiteout, and Van Helsing since the type of films she appears in has shifted. One of the most beautiful women alive in our opinion, she looks amazing in a movie bodysuit or bikini as seen here in this impressive selfie.
8 Eva Marie
One of the most hated women in the WWE over the last several years, Eva Marie was hired in order to play a part in Total Divas where she was cast as a newbie to the wrestling world trying to make her way. Unfortunately for her, she wasn’t qualified for a bigger role than that at the time and the WWE’s decision to put her in matches where she was exposed did great damage to the way she was seen. Dangerous in the ring at the time and awful to watch as she clearly had no idea what she was doing, much of the fan base turned on her and have never moved past that first impression. Improving over the years after a stay in NXT, she will never be a mat technician but she seems passable at times, at least. Still, she isn’t listed here due to her wrestling skills. Instead, we’ve included her for the same reason she was hired in the first place. She is a rather alluring woman as epitomized in a selfie like this where we get to see her awe-inspiring body.
Hired by the WWE after taking part in the Divas Search, Maryse spent years as a wrestler, even becoming a two-time Divas Champion before stepping away from the business as a whole. Married in real life to The Miz, a former WWE Champion, she has rejoined the company of late at his side. Becoming arguably the most entertaining duo on WWE TV, she has added to his presentation in a gigantic way as he carries himself in a much different and cockier way than even before. We can’t blame him though. If we had a woman that stunning on our arm every week, we would probably have a bounce to our step too. Pictured here at a WWE event, as evidenced by the recognizable WWE light grid, it is abundantly obvious why fans look forward to her appearances each week.
6 Jessica Nigri
An example of the fact that there are more routes to becoming famous these days than ever before, Jessica Nigiri has created a sizable following via dressing up like popular characters. Probably the best-known cosplayer alive, she has branched out since the start of her notoriety too and become a spokesmodel for video games and comic book series. With such an unorthodox career, we could go on and on about her various achievements. But at the end of the day, she is paid to show up places and look good. Owing her success by and large to becoming a sensation online, it should come as no surprise that her selfie game is on point, even when not showing off the cleavage she is known for, as is the case here.
5 Emily Ratajkowski
Robin Thicke’s hit song “Blurred Lines” was the song of the summer for 2013 and if you ask us, a great deal of its success was due to its music video that was highlighted by some sexy women. Among them was Emily Ratajkowski who cavorted around either topless or wearing very little depending on the version of the video but stole the hearts of millions with each. Going on to be included in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue, as well as walking runways for Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, she also appeared in several advertising campaigns. Able to make forays into the acting world, she had memorable roles in Gone Girl and the Entourage movie which has only served to introduce her to many more people. Pictured here wearing a yellow dress that is slit down the middle, she also has a neck piece on that obscures much of her chest. Still, there is something about this photo that makes it feel like we can see much more of her than we can, which is something we love.
4 Brooke Adams
The final wrestler to appear on this list, Brooke Adams also happens to be the only one that isn’t currently working for the WWE that made our list. No longer working for the biggest company in the industry, it is remarkable that she still manages to be among the most attractive women in the wrestling world in our view. A former three-time TNA Knockouts Champion and one-time TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champion, she has gone by Brooke Tessmacher there, but her name has no bearing on her skills in the ring. Pictured here in her ring gear, the angle at which she took this image really shows off just how mind-blowing her figure actually is and makes this photo one that demands to be listed here.
3 Demi Lovato
Introduced to much of the world as part of the Disney child star-making machine, Demi Lovato played the main role in the Disney Channel production known as Camp Rock. Going on to break free of the acting and family friendly worlds, these days, this multi-talented young woman is best known for her singing career and as a one-time judge of The X Factor. Having previously released hit songs like “Heart Attack,” “Give Your Heart A Break,” “Cool For the Summer,” “Neon Lights,” and many more, she is arguably one of the biggest singing stars today. Also, someone who has been public about having suffered from substance abuse and an eating disorder in the past, these days, she admirably promotes body positivity. In this photo, it is the confidence in her face that makes it look as though she is totally at peace with her looks, which has to be one of the most attractive things possible in our view, that makes it stand among the rest.
2 Kylie Jenner
A member of the Kardashian and Jenner clans, Kylie Jenner came to prominence due to the all-encompassing empire that famous and popular clan has built for itself. Featured in a string of “reality” TV shows that focus on her and the rest of her family, you may not enjoy the overly dramatized content that Kylie plays a role in. But you have to recognize her staying power. Also, a model on the rise and someone who is involved in a long list of product lines alongside her sister Kendall, the sibs were included in Time Magazine’s list of The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014. In short, if there is an image focused on business dominated by celebrities, there is a pretty good chance that Kylie will be involved in it at a high level. That includes social media itself where she regularly posts images like this one that are designed to turn on her followers and through which she makes a pretty decent advertising dollar.
1 Tyra Banks
Tyra Banks was introduced to the world as a supermodel who was a mainstay of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and almost all of the most coveted gigs the industry has to offer. However, not content to rest on those impressive laurels, she went on to become a fairly successful actress highlighted by roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Halloween: Resurrection. On top of that, she created and served as the top judge on most seasons of America’s Next Top Model, a reality series that has lasted far longer than most of its ilk. It only makes sense that the woman to be featured in our top slot is a model based on the fact that they are trained to take photos designed to elicit a response in those that see them. It may be surprising, however, that a woman with curves like hers would have a photo that only shows her face be included. Then, you look at how gorgeous and radiant her face looks here and it becomes obvious why this picture took our top slot and why she has ruled the model roost.
