Summer may be long gone, but since the year is closing out, there’s no better time than now to review the year in stunning bikini bods. From Selena’s romp in Miami to the never-ending sexiness of Rihanna, who do you think had the sexiest swimsuit look of 2013?
Though 2013 was a year where most stars showed more skin on stage (*cough* Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga *cough*), there’s still something to be said about the simple sexiness of a good bikini body. And between Selena Gomez baring it all on a trip to Miami and Rihanna being her usual smoldering self, it was also a pretty good year for that!
Rihanna: Sexiest Bikini Body Of 2013?
Though there were so many sexy stars to choose from, two girls’ bikini looks really caught our eyes.
RiRi kept things as hot as the Caribbean sand all year, going on a worldwide tour and taking her bikini body with her. She Instagrammed bikini shots from all over the globe — Thailand, the Dominican Republic, Monte Carlo — but quite possibly her sexiest two-piece look happened in her homeland, Barbados.
Rihanna rocked the skimpiest of skimpy bikinis on Nov. 6, showing off her absurd body and all those edgy tattoos.
Selena Gomez Flaunts Her Bikini Body
But was the Unapologetic singer sexier than Selena? The bikini really helped usher Selena into adulthood in 2013 (anyone remember Spring Breakers?). But besides that racy flick, the singer also showed off her swimsuit bod during a day off in Miami on May 11.
Wearing a patterned, multi-colored bikini, Selena swiftly confirmed why she’s the only girl Justin Bieber will ever love. And she also made us drool uncontrollably.
So HollywoodLifers, does one of these two girls deserve to be honored with the Hottest Bikini Body award? Or should it go to another star like Kendall Jenner, Nina Dobrev, or Julianne Hough? Check out the gallery above and let us know!
