Summer is officially here and that means that our favorite celebrities are going to be baring it all on the beach very shortly. We love seeing celebrities strip down to nothing but their swimsuits.
We believe that everybody is beautiful, however, we can't deny that some celebrities look better on the beach than others. Let us clear something up right now, looking good on the beach does not mean being a size zero. There are many “skinny” girls who made the worst list. What it is about is looking healthy. Working out and being active should not only be reserved for people who want to lose weight. Some of these celebrities simply look unhealthy and we're just not into that.
From being too thin to not wearing the right bathing suit for your body, celebrities makes a ton of mistakes when it comes to beach fashion. The following is a list of the 8 best and the 8 worst beach bodies of summer 17. From super hot moms to super sickly washed out celebrities, this list has something for everyone.
16 Khloe Kardashian - Best
When it comes to working hard to getting the body she wanted, no one has worked as hard than Khloe Kardashian.
Kardashian, who always felt like the “fat” sister finally decided to do something about those insecurities. She worked out countless hours a week and inspired not only those around her but so many of her fans.
There was a time when Kardashian's confidence was not like it is today and we are so happy to see her loving herself as much as the world loves her.
Kardashian decided to take control of her life and wanted to help fans do the same which is why she started the show Revenge Body which is all about losing weight in a healthy way! One of our favorite quotes of Kardashian is the following “Fitness is not about being better than someone else...It is about being better than you used to be” and we completely agree with her.
15 Lisa Rinna- Worst
Lisa Rinna is an actress who now spends her days as one of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Don't get us wrong, we love the drama that Rinna stirs up on the show and we love to watch her get herself out of the many sticky situations she gets herself into. Love her or hate her, the woman is very entertaining.
Rinna is obviously very thin and on the show, she is almost never in a bathing suit. However, when she is, we hate to say it but she is frightening.
Rinna is one of the thinnest people in Hollywood, which is saying a lot. We're pretty sure her lips weigh more than her entire body.
Rinna however, is full of confidence and adores posting pictures of herself on the beach or by the pool, which I guess is the most important thing, her loving herself!
14 Jessica Alba - Best
Jessica Alba is a smoking hot mother of two who has always been known for her good looks and even better body.
Alba who has been in the industry for quite some time has not always been as confident as she is now. “I was a lot more critical of my body when it was probably pretty awesome. It’s like, why did I not ever wear jean shorts? That’s so crazy. I was so skinny! I didn’t have any cellulite…what was I thinking?! I was more willing to wear short skirts after I had my kids. I never wore them before. Ever. I was so self-conscious” said the actress.
The thirty-six-year-old knockout really is deserving of a spot on this list, I mean just look at her, she is on fire!
13 Donatella Versace - Worst
Oh Donatella, cover up, please!
Donatella Versace is not the hottest ray of sunshine. Versace is known to have had many surgeries both on her face and body and has clearly spent too much time under the Tuscan sun.
Donatella may be rich and have luxurious items but she is far from being good looking. It is sad that her face has been almost distorted from the copious amounts of surgeries she has undergone. Her body is exactly the same situation. Her leather looking skin and poorly done surgeries are exactly why she is on this list.
Donatella is probably one of the worst looking people in the industry and we are sure that if it wasn't for her powerful last name she would not be where she is today. Donatella is very inspiring when it comes to talking about different body types and has said "Plus-sized women shouldn't think of themselves as a size. They should think of themselves as women with rich goals in life. Size doesn't mean, really, anything. You can carry your size with pride and dress in a way that you like."
12 Rihanna - Best
When it comes to being sexy and looking fit, Rihanna knows exactly what she is doing. The Island girl grew up on the beach so seeing her living it up near the water is like seeing her in her natural habitat. Riri loves being in a bathing suit, especially a sexy bikini to really show off that body.
Rihanna is ridiculously hot and she knows it. Her good looks, hot body and extreme amount of confidence is exactly why she the superstar that she is.
At the end of the day, there are not many women in the world that look as good as Princess Rih looks on the beach.
Want some advice from Rihanna? She swears that Coconut water has a huge impact on her physique, saying in a past interview "I drink a lot of coconut water. It balances out all the other toxic stuff I put into my body."
11 Kesha - Worst
Kesha has always had something off about her when it comes to her physical appearance. It is not that she is not hot or sexy but there is just something that has never stuck with us.
The thing about Kesha is that when she is on the red carpet, her body looks pretty good, however, when she is on the beach, it is not so impressive.
Kesha looks as if she has never worked out a day in her life and definitely is not up to the Hollywood body standards. Lucky for her, she is super talented and even more badass which helps a lot!
Kesha is one of those people that is full of love for both herself and those around her “I don't just love men, I love people. It is not about gender. It is about the spirit that exudes from that other person you are with” said the singer.
10 Emily Ratajkowski - Best
Emily Ratajkowski is one of the hottest girls on the planet. The model and actress who recently celebrated her 26th birthday is a force to be reckoned with.
The well spoken and stunning woman is one of those people that is universally attractive. Men, women, boys, and girls around the world would agree that Ratajkowski is beyond gorgeous.
Ratajowski looks best when she is without makeup and on the beach. It really shows her fans what natural beauty is and we love her for that.
Ratajkowski's advice on beach fashion is the following “Your bikini should compliment your dress, and they should work together to frame your body. It is just like layering a T-shirt under a blazer. Just keep your proportions in mind.”
9 Heidi Montag - Worst
When the world was introduced to Heidi Montag on the MTV show Laguna Beach we had no idea the monster it would create.
The reality star went from being that all American girl next door to a self-proclaimed plastic surgery addict. In case you do not remember, Montag once did ten procedures in one day.
Montag looks a little ridiculous and her plastic body is far from what anyone should aspire to look like. She herself is aware that she made a mistake when she got all these surgeries done and has gone on record saying “I thought I was investing in myself and my brand, like Kim Kardashian. When she buys these clothes, she's investing in herself, because she is a big brand and is likeable. I thought I had that potential. My ego got too big. To think I could be someone like that when I was the most hated girl ever.”
8 Lea Michele - Best
Lea Michele has one of the cutest, sexiest and most fit bodies in Hollywood. The former Glee star has always been known for her adorable looks and a fierce amount of talent.
Michele is what we like to call the perfect petite. She may be small, but you can tell that she lives an active lifestyle and is far from being simply skin and bones.
Lea Michele is a human and although she loves her body, she does not always feel sexy “I love myself, the way I look, my body, but sometimes I can't help but feel insecure” said the actress.
Although we understand feeling insecure, it is safe to say that there is no reason for her to feel that way, she is a knockout!
7 Lena Dunham - Worst
As much as we love Lena Dunham and everything she stands for, we need to be honest and admit she does not have the best bikini body in the industry.
Dunham who is best known for bringing to the world and starring in the HBO hit television series Girls is no stranger to showing the world her body.
One thing we must love and respect about Dunham is her confidence and for that reason alone she looks amazing, however, the reality is that she does not have the hottest body in the industry. However, she does have a great mind, sense of humor and an insane amount of talent, so I guess the reality is that she comes out on top, if you really think about it. “I don't feel like my work is dependent on my size. I feel like my work is dependent on the fact that I am every woman. I would be every woman if I lost 20 pounds and if I gained 50 pounds” said Dunham in a previous interview.
6 Jennifer Lawrence - Best
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the hottest and most talented women in Hollywood. The Academy Award winning actress is no stranger to criticism, however, we don't see how anyone can find anything wrong with the way she looks.
Lawrence is in great shape, which does not mean that she does not indulge in a burger when she wants. Lawrence is all about empowering the body you have and being healthy which is why we love her so much. “You have to look past it- you look how you look and be comfortable. What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That is just dumb” said Lawrence and we completely agree.
Regardless of what she says, there is no denying that she is smoking hot, both on the red carpet and on the beach.
5 Courtney Love - Worst
Courtney Love, the woman who once said “I am not a woman, I am a force of nature” no longer has the spark she once did.
Courtney Love is one of those celebrities that lost her mind a long time ago. Believe it or not, before she discovered such a deep love for substances Love had a bright future in the industry. Her undeniable talent was influential in her success.
Nowadays, sadly, Love is not looking nearly as good as she did when she was in her prime. Love looks almost skeletal on the beach throughout the past few years and it is safe to say it does not look healthy.
Courtney Love is used to negative press but we still kind of feel bad for calling her out on her horrible beach body.
4 Erika Girardi - Best
Erika Girardi by day, Erika Jayne by night.
Erika Girardi is on the show Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but she is so much more than just a “housewife”. Yes, she is married to an incredibly powerful lawyer, Thomas Girardi, but she is also a singer and performer extraordinaire.
Girardi is by far the housewife with the most sex appeal in the history of housewives. Her amazing body looks good in anything she puts on it from Chanel pantsuits to ballgowns, so it is no surprise that she looks incredible while strutting her stuff on the beach.
Girardi is all about promoting self-love and has been quoted saying inspirational things like “I think women should live out loud. I think that we should be fearless. I think we should express ourselves. I think we should have fun”. Her attitude is just one of the reasons we love her so much.
3 Tara Reid- Worst
Tara Reid was at one point a “star” however, drugs, partying and excessive amounts of surgeries did not end up being a good look for her. She is the same person that once said: “Why is partying and having a good time bad?” Well Tara, when you end up looking as washed up as you, it can be considered “bad”.
Reid has had obvious surgery on her body and when you see her in a bikini you see how bad it is. Her stomach, breasts, legs, and arms are all not the most appealing to look at, which is a shame because when she was in her prime, Reid was a knockout.
The world loved her in American Pie and as sad as it is to see her throw those natural good looks down the drain it is a lesson to young girls to cool it with the plastic surgeries.
2 Kourtney Kardashian - Best
After having three children, most women's bodies tend to get less hot. For Kourtney Kardashian, that is far from the case.
Kardashian is one of those freaks of nature who has always had and will always have a perfect body. Yes, Kardashian eats very healthy and works out regularly, but it is the shape of her body that is so damn hot.
We ADORE seeing Kardashian on the beach, whether she is rocking a cut out one piece or wearing a teeny-weeny bikini you can be assured she will be killing it. "I'm proof that, even after having a baby, you can look better and sexier than ever!" said the reality star and we could not agree with her more.
1 Rachel Zoe - Worst
Rachel Zoe knows pretty much everything you need to know about fashion, however, about looking healthy it is like she knows nothing. When it comes to style, she believes "I don't think that people should wear dresses two sizes too small. I just think that sexiness is better left to the imagination. It's just more tasteful."
Rachel Zoe is a fierce player in the fashion world, which may explain her super thin frame. However, we like a little more meat on our bones.
It is not that Rachel Zoe is thin, she looks borderline unhealthy. This mother needs to learn how to pack on the pounds so that she can reach her full beauty potential.
However, just like losing weight, gaining weight for some is hard to do.
