15 Times Julianne Hough Looked Smokin' Hot On The Beach

There are some women that look hot in a bikini, and then there are women that look really hot in a bikini, and then there is Julianne Hough.

Memorial Day is right around the corner and that means two things. First of all, it means that you get a day off from your lousy job that you hate so much, and secondly, it means that it's the official start of beach season. Beach season is awesome, not so much because of the way the sand feels on your feet or how the sun feels on your face, not even for the natural beauty of the beach or how the ocean feels on your body. No, those things are all okay, but none of them are the reason that beach season is so cool. Beach season is cool because you get to check out women's bodies. Ever think about the fact that when you see a woman in her underwear she freaks out, but she'll strut right past you wearing a bikini? Or that when a woman walks past you in a city and she can tell you're checking her out, she gets mad, but when you do it on the beach, it's all good?

There are a lot of hot celebrities who look awesome on the beach, but for my money, there's one hot chick that looks better in a bikini than all of them, and that's Julianne Hough. She looks amazing wearing next to nothing, and for your viewing pleasure, we picked out some of the very best photos out there of Julianne wearing a bikini.

Look at this one, not that I have to tell you that, of course. I'm sure that you're already looking at it. Why else would you be here? While her training didn't do a lot for her psyche, it sure did a lot for her career. She won Dancing with the Stars with her partner, Olympic gold medal-winning speedskater Apolo Ohno, and also won with three-time Indianapolis 500 champion Hélio Castroneves. It was very apparent right off the bat that she was going to be a big success. One doesn't see a woman like this too often, with such great beauty and with obvious charm, and of course, the fact that she's an amazing dancer probably doesn't hurt her cause a whole lot either. She has the whole package.

Julianne went on a vacation with her friend, Nina Dobrev, and not only hung out on the beach but partied like crazy, too. According to the Daily Mail, "Another photo shows the famous BFFs touching tongues as they undoubtedly bid their good girl images goodbye. When they're not playing on Mexico's stunning beaches, the group appears to be making the most of Mexico's nightlife. Several shots show the girls getting down and dirty in what appears to be dimly lit nightclubs." All that partying sounds fun, but I'm honestly a bit more interested in how these two looked on the beach. This photo is just a tease, but when it comes to teases, this is a pretty darn good one. Julianne looks totally hot.

13 Does This Fit Okay?

Here's Julianne making a tiny bit of an adjustment on her swimsuit to ensure that she's not showing too much skin. After all, if she was, then someone might take a photo of her from behind looking really amazing in her swimsuit, and if someone did that, then it would be possible they could sell it to a website, and then it might wind up in some sort of "Man, does Julianne Hough look hot in a bikini" article on a website like TheRichest. And who would want that? Sorry, Julianne... even when you attempt to not look totally sexy, you still do. You either have to get a different sort of swimsuit that hides your body completely, or you're going to have to make your body less attractive. Is that even possible?

12 Gorgeous

This is a body that was made for dancing, or is it the other way around? Did dancing make her body? Who knows, really? She began dancing competitively at nine and trained at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, where she was trained in song, theater, gymnastics and many forms of dance, including jazz, ballet, and tap. Her grandparents are both dancers, and her brother, Derek, is also a professional dancer. For all of us, I would like to thank Julianne's parents for paying for all of that training; if it wasn't for all of that, none of us would get the chance to look at all of these photos of her on the beach, although now that I think of it, this probably wasn't what her parents had in mind at the time.

11 Windblown

Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough were spotted on the beach in the waves in St.Barts. Showing off her dancer's physique to its fullest extent, Julianne rocked a white bikini for the outing, while Seacrest was no slouch himself, showing off his own enviably hot bod with a pair of navy swim trunks.

Julianne is not just gorgeous and sexy; she's also totally cute as this photo can attest to. One might think that every woman that's pretty is also cute, but it just isn't so. One thing that's not totally adorable about Julianne, though, is the time she almost needed to be rushed to the hospital while performing. Her partner at the time was Hannah Montana actor Cody Linley. She later said that she felt abdominal pains during her performance, and she was brought to the hospital right afterward. She ended up having surgery and had to have her appendix removed. This seems wrong. How could anything even slightly bad happen to Julianne? She's just way too cute to ever get sick or have to go to the hospital. Right?

10 On the Boat

Well, since this is our very last photo of Julianne in a bikini, we might as well make it a good one. She truly is the hottest chick that I can think of whether she's wearing a bikini or not, but I'm totally happy that she chooses to wear one a lot of the time. June is just a couple of days away, which means pretty much no matter what part of the country Julianne is going to be kicking it in, it's going to be warm enough for her to go to the beach and throw on a bikini. When she does, I just hope that there's a brave photographer around, willing to put himself on the line so the rest of us can check her out. There are regular paparazzi, and then there are Julianne-Hough-in-a-bikini paparazzi, and I don't know about you, but I think those guys are heroes.

9 Hot in Purple

Well, this pretty much sums up what we're talking about. Julianne is a super hot chick; there's no doubt about that. She has an amazing body and a gorgeous face, but the thing about her that really gets a lot of guys going is that she seems so totally natural. Of course, she's an amazing dancer as well, so that doesn't hurt at all. She's won Dancing With the Stars on more than one occasion and was so popular she not only was made a judge on the show but also got a big role in the remake of Footloose. Of course, the movie wasn't all that good, but hey, neither was the first one, really. Does any of that matter? The only reason to see it was to check out Julianne dancing and looking smoking hot anyway.

8 Nice Hat

Once again, that body. It's too bad that we don't live in a world where we could see Julianne wearing nothing but a bikini all the time wherever we went. It seems like it would be absolutely impossible to be in a bad mood if that were to happen. You would be in a bad mood and going to get your morning coffee, and then you would see Julianne in a bikini in the coffee shop. Your boss gives you a bad review, and then you look over, and sitting next to you in the office, you would see Julianne in a bikini. Your girlfriend is not in the mood to get romantic, and then you go into the bedroom, and you see Julianne... well, you get the point. This is just another of many amazing photos of her looking incredible in a bikini.

7 Paddleboarding

One of the things that make her so hot is that she's athletic but still has a body that one would definitely describe as womanly. She's the perfect combination of being in really good shape and having some curves. There are some women that are total hardbodies, and that's awesome, of course, except a guy wants a little bit of cushion in certain places. And then there are other women who are totally curvy, which is very fun of course, but they might be a tiny bit out of shape. Julianne is the perfect combination of both sides of this spectrum: she's a very athletic woman who still has a little bit of curviness about her. And seriously, is there really anything more you could ask for when it comes to a woman's looks that she doesn't have?

6 Perfect

Here's yet another photo showing off how absolutely amazing Julianne looks while wearing a bikini. It's good that she has her confidence as sadly, she was abused when she was training in London as a child. She says of this, "I was told if I ever went back to the United States, three things were going to happen. One: I was going to amount to nothing. Two: I was going to work at Whataburger. And three: I was going to end up a slut. So, it was like, I can't go back. I have to be this person." It's sad to hear that she was treated this way as a kid who was just trying to learn how to be a good dancer, but it's truly awesome that she had the courage to speak out about how bad things were for her back then.

5 The Color Purple

This is another incredibly hot photo of Julianne. This one is from one of my very favorite angles, but no, that's the thing with her: no matter what angle you're checking her out from, she looks amazing. She's gorgeous, she can dance, she can act -- what else could she be good at? Oh yeah, she's also a super successful country singer as well. First, she ended up saying she wouldn't be returning to Dancing with the Stars for a while so she could work on her music career, and then she signed with a label and started putting out some music. Is there anything that she can't do? It's just totally amazing someone could be so talented in so many ways and also look so incredibly hot.

4 Action Shot

My God. Is there anything about this woman's looks that isn't absolutely perfect? How does someone just look so amazing all the time and from any angle? Especially when she's wearing a bikini. Her first album debuted at No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart and hit No. 3 on the Billboard 200. She ended up touring with Brad Paisley along with Jewel and Chuck Wicks. If only she could have done her tour wearing a bikini. How much cooler would that have been when you really think about it? I don't know who's acting as her manager, but if it were me, I would definitely tell her that she should wear a bikini all the time when she's performing. Or I would require that of her every single second she's out of the house.

3 Pool Shot

Here's an Instagram shot of Julianne chilling by her pool. She has around 3.7 million followers on Instagram at this point, which is obviously a lot. Believe it or not, it's even more than I have. There are a lot of gorgeous photos of her on there, of course, but not nearly enough of her wearing a bikini. In fact, some of the photos even include her with guys and even her husband to be. Really, Julianne? That's totally gross and also pretty unnecessary. Look, I know you might think that those 3.7 million people really want to know what's going on in your life, but it really isn't true. What they really want is to see way more photos of you in a bikini because you know it's true: you look so hot in one.

2 Catch a Wave

50982527 "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend Julianne Hough have a blast at the beach on St Barts on January 4, 2012. The couple played with each other in the clear, warm waters and laid out on the beach to dry off and get a little sun... FameFlynet, Inc - Beverly Hills, CA, USA - +1 (818) 307-4813

Here's yet another photo of Julianne frolicking in the waves and showing off what she's got. It seems that there are possibly more photos of her in a bikini than any other person out there, at least currently. Apparently, between dancing, judging, acting, singing, and touring, she still finds a whole lot of time to hang out chilling on the beach. Not that I'm complaining, mind you. I tend to go there a lot myself, and when I do, I spend the vast majority of my time looking around for Julianne wearing a bikini, or at least someone that looks like her. So far, I haven't any sort of luck in either one of those areas, and not only that, but it tends to make my girlfriend kind of irritated as well.

1 Stay Hydrated

So it stands to reason that someone that looks at hot as she does in this photo, as well as all the rest, is not going to be single unless she wants to be. At one point, Julianne Hough dated country singer Charlie Wicks. When they broke up, it inspired Hough's song "Is That So Wrong?."  She then dated Ryan Seacrest for a while, which, in all honesty, is really super gross  She then began dating NHL hockey player Brooks Laich. The two are engaged and are going to be married soon. All I have to say about that is that the bikini photos better continue, and they better be of her by herself, not with her walking down the beach holding hands with her husband. That's even grosser than her dating Ryan Seacrest.
