These women know how to rock Billboard’s charts AND a super sizzling bikini! See pics of Selena Gomez, Rihanna and more gorgeous singers stunting in classic but oh-so-sexy suits.
Fall festivities are near! But before our furnaces finesse summer from us, let’s reflect on the best bikinis from earlier this year. Who better to set this standard than industry leaders themselves — AKA, music’s top women! “Onesies” and intricate cut-out swimsuits may be gaining traction (thanks Kourtney Kardashian), but these chart-toppers prove that the classic bikini set will never die. And the cheekier, the merrier!
Ever since Brazilian-cut bottoms hit the international fashion market, thongs have quickly been replacing their “full coverage” counterparts. As for prints, from snakeskin to tiger stripes — all faux, of course — our favorite radio queens show us all kinds of ways to spice up our poolside outfits. That’s why we’ve deemed them the best bikini role models! Take Selena Gomez, 26, for example.
The “Back To You” singer defied the status quo of a color-coordinating suit with a mismatching bikini on March 19. Everyone on Sydney Harbor must’ve noticed the dazzle of orange from ashore! Selena’s orange bikini top just wouldn’t have popped like that if she was wearing anything but black bikini bottoms. Her gold hoop earrings were the perfect accent to the bright top, making the orange warm rather than loud. But Selena’s best accessory here was her confidence! The singer rocked this suit despite the scars from her 2017 kidney transplant being visible. Selena makes body positivity extra sexy!
Rihanna, 30, also sported orange by the water on May 2. As if the string ties on her bikini bottoms weren’t alluring enough, her splash of tiger stripes would’ve made any boat tip overboard! But really, we didn’t expect anything less sultry from the founder of the SavagexFenty lingerie line. Don’t forget she’s also responsible for songs like “Rude Boy” and “Kiss It Better” — not recommended listening for your grandma! Now, hop on the gallery above to let more of music’s top women inspire you for the last days of summer.
