There’s nothing like a good bikini photo opportunity — especially during the holidays! While the vision of Christmas is usually a white winter wonderland, we’ve also seen stars strip down to their bikinis on vacations during the holiday season. Everyone from Rihanna to Cara Delevingne and more have done it, and we rounded up some of their best holiday swimsuit looks:
On Christmas Eve 2020, Gabrielle Union shared a super sexy photo of herself in a yellow string bikini. She had her legs submerged in a hot tub and struck a sexy pose in the look. She also jokingly made the location of her pic as the North Pole, and she captioned the shot, “Lemme go see what Santa talkin’ about.”
Hitting the beach for Christmas isn’t something new for Hollywood’s elite. In 2017, Ashley Graham spent the holiday soaking up the sun in her very own swimwear line. At the time, she showed off her killer curves in a number of suits — including a leopard one-piece, pink patterned two-piece and a pink cut-out bikini. In some Instagram shots, Ashley even posed with a real-life camel.
Most years, Jennifer Aniston jets to Mexico for a pre-holiday trip with her friends. She was photographed hanging out at the group’s private villa in a black bikini, which she paired with a pink skirt that she rolled down. Jen was tanned and glowing in the pics, and she also wore sunglasses to combat the sun.
Paris Jackson is another star who enjoys the sun at Christmastime. A few years ago, she donned a black Calvin Klein two-piece in a photo that showed her hanging from a tree. “Feet always dirty in my Calvins,” the model wrote next to the Instagram snap, which overlooked a large body of water. Paris also shared a festive snap with pal Cara Delevingne.
Like Ashley, Candace Swanepoel also basked in the sun during the 2017 holiday season. “Merry Christmas from us” the Victoria’s Secret alum captioned a swimsuit photo with her firstborn son, Ariel on her lap. At the same time, fellow VS model Stella Maxwell sat poolside with her pup on December 25. She took to Instagram to share a photo of her toned legs in a pink and black bikini.
You can’t talk about bikinis and not mention the swimsuit queen herself, Elizabeth Hurley. The Royals alum, who’s known for sharing bikini photos, also showed off her amazing figure at Christinams in 2017. But, she didn’t hit the beach like the aforementioned stars. Instead, Liz posed in a cut-out swimsuit on a Christmas card, which she shared with her Instagram followers.
Throughout the years, it’s become almost traditional for celebrities to hit the sand and surf for Christmas. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have done it, along with many more celeb couples.
