While we’re busy trying to look cute in the cold weather, some of our favorite celebs are spending their holiday vacations in bikinis. And since it’s never to early to start shopping for a good bathing suit, we rounded up a few of our favorite styles. (And yes, this post also serves up some serious fitness inspiration.)

Jennifer Aniston continued her post-holiday vacay tradition in Los Cabos, Mexico, working on her tan alongside fiancé Justin Theroux and a few very famous friends, including Courteney Cox (who also looks amazing in a bikini, in case you were wondering). Aniston kept up with her simple swimwear style, teaming her itty bitty black bikini with a pale blue sarong.

Over on the celeb-loved island of St. Barts, Olivia Palermo proves her beach style is just as noteworthy as her street style in a striped bandeau top and matching bottoms. And Rihanna gets the award for most head-turning bikinis, selecting a sequin-embellished bronze string suit as she continued her bikini parade in Barbados over the weekend.

Gabrielle Union also headed to the islands to celebrate her engagement, pairing her crazy rock with a bright orange bikini and cowboy hat. “Urban cowgirl strikes again… #islandliving #wholetallthedamnfliesin,” she captioned the below photo.

Excuse me. Can we not just be happy with out bodies when they are healthy. Excuse you for perpetuating a negative body image for women and men of all body types. I clicked on this link just to leave this comment—not to be directed on what the supposed ideal body is—and then told that I should feel jealous. You took it to far People. how inappropriate. I for one, am happy with my body – though because I am close to the ideal I guess that makes it easier—but what about those who don’t fit in it—or those that do but have a complex that’s always fed by mass media and now the general population. No. I do not want to look like one of these stars. Who I do want to look like, is me.

They all look fine . . . but skinny doesn’t equal a great body. Rihanna has some curves going on but Jennifer Aniston and Natalie Portman are just skinny. Perhaps fit – but skinny!

I want a personal chef and a trainer to come to me home! These women have earned a much easier path than most women and yes I am jealous. They work their butts off to look as good as they do! I would love to have their abs..

Yeah, Im not jealous over a straight board, personally. I like a girl with womanly curves, not fat curves, but shape!

What does People have against hips and boobs? All these girls are just thin…but enviable? Not convinced by these pics :-/

TiffTiff on

No….nope…not jealous of Olivia Palermo’s figure…no.

None of them tripped my trigger.

None of them have a chest….. They are thin and look fit I think, but there’s nothing wrong w/ womanly curves : ) Beyonce, Sofia V. And Allison Sweeny are all curvy but healthy! I’d rather aspire to look like that <3

Olivia Palermo needs to be off this list. While the other celebs look fit, Olivia just looks emaciated. Nothing cute about that. Out of all the photos, I think Gabrielle Union looks the best. She looks like she works out and takes care of herself, but she still has some nice, healthy curves. Like many black women (including myself), she’s curvier in the hips/thighs and booty, and a bit smaller in the chest. But it’s all good. I think she looks great!
