As we all know, social media giveth, and social media taketh, and this summer, it has been giving in a big way.
It seems like celebrities are always on summer vacation. Luckily for us, they love showing off their enviable beach bodies along the way — but for good reason, of course. After all, when you look that good, why wouldn’t you show it off!? From the sands of Ibiza to backyard pools in Hollywood, celebs can’t help but ‘gram it all — and we couldn’t be more grateful. (These 14 celebrities clearly keep the age-old, very important Internet rule in mind: If you don’t Instgram it, it never happened.)
Although celebs have always been pretty keen on showing off their hard-earned bodies, the influx of perfectly-filtered photos hitting our feeds this summer has been especially strong. From Kim Kardashian working on her tan in Mexico, to Liam Payne hanging out on a yacht off the coast of Italy, celebs are simultaneously giving us serious FOMO and inspiring us to hit the gym.
Although it seems like every celeb has been has been busy ‘gramming their beach body this summer, if we were giving out awards, Lea Michele would have this one in the bag! She’s posted so many snaps of her bangin’ beach bod, that we’ve almost lost track of them all. She’s been spotted rocking a bikini in Mexico, Hawaii, and the Amalfi Coast in the past few months alone!
So consider these pictures our gift to you: A collection of the best beach bodies of summer 2014 below.
