Top 10 Hottest Celebrity Beach Bodies - 2012

Updated on April 11, 2012

2012 Celebrity Beach Bodies

Itching with anticipation for summer to truly arrive? If you don’t already have your bags packed, at least in your minds, it’s time to pick out your favorite designer swimwear to serve as inspiration for your summer-preparation workout. What better place to look then to the celebrities we all know and love (or love to hate, that’s always fun too). It’s a new summer season approaching and we’re taking a look at the best celebrity bikini bodies for 2012, the ones we all love to envy. Perhaps this countdown will give us some extra motivation to get ourselves to the gym and work on our bikini body. Let’s get started.

#10. Taylor Swift

This country music cutie showed off her tall, slim figure in a retro striped two piece, showing off her curves she so often hides under frilly frocks. With phone in hand, the perfect retro inspired sunnies, and some majorly cute bangs, Taylor pulls off this look with ease. We love that this young woman isn’t super ripped nor too thin, she’s the perfect natural shape for herself and she embraces her body as it is.

#9. Audrina Patridge

This former reality starlet donned a floral printed two piece with coral color that coordinates seamlessly with her tanned, and toned, skin. This actress, model, host, extraordinaire is not shy about her workout routine and eats healthily, yet has her fun days too where she eats her favorite sweets. We love Audrina’s ‘Baywatch’ like strut in this photo paired with some classic aviator sunglasses and a ponytail to create her classic relaxed style.

#8. Rihanna

Rihanna may be starring in a new movie this year but still adore her most for her musical talents, and her style. A Barbados native, Rihanna’s known for her true figure and her dance moves. We love that this Hollywood woman doesn’t change herself just because she’s in the spotlight. Donning a white two piece complete with a jacket tied around her waist, pure 90’s style we’d like to add, Rihanna enjoyed some paddle surfing in the truly turquoise waters of Hawaii.

#7. Bethenny Frankel

We all wish we had her sense of humor, her culinary talents, and, of course, her body. Perhaps it goes without saying that this natural chef eats and drinks the best things for you and maybe that’s what we shall attribute her hot bod to, but we’d like to think it’s a combination or eating her own delicious foods and working out. We love to follow her reality show which gives us a front row seat to her daily routine including meals and workouts…if only we had the same discipline for ourselves.

#6. Julianne Hough

This famed triple threat (dancer, singer, and actress) enjoyed some time off in St. Barths. We adore this green color on her, but we can’t stop starring at her perfectly toned body. We must attribute this body to the rising Hollywood gal’s dancing routine. Perhaps we need to become famous so we can join Dancing with the Stars and get ourselves a body like this. We only hope Ry-Guy, Ryan Seacrest, knows exactly what he’s got with his lovely girlfriend.

#5. Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa’s been spotted many times in a two piece but this has to be our favorite. The 23 year old knows her style and sticks to it whether on the red carpet or enjoying her time off. This rising actress enjoyed some rest and relaxation in Hawaii with a brightly colored and ethnic printed bikini. We love how the starlet accessorized her suit and the overall ensemble is perfectly age appropriate. Our last question for this Hollywood queen…how does your hair stay so perfect at the beach?!

#4. Kim Kardashian

The Hollywood starlet almost always at the center of attention, or controversy, and the reality show queen that everyone loves to hate or loves to emulate. Yes, of course, we’re talking about famed Kim Kardashian. This brunette bombshell seems to always have the latest fashions and follow the latest trends, and when it comes to bikini shots we love her figure. This tabloid queen isn’t stick thin and embraces the curves she has by dressing appropriately, for the most part. We’d love to look as good as this girl during our workouts.

#3. Megan Fox

The Mrs. Brian Austin Green recently announced with her hubby that they’re expecting their first child together, and we can’t wait to see how adorable this Hollywood baby is. We’re sure that Megan won’t lose her awesome beach body during her pregnancy and after giving birth. The toned actress is always stunning along the red carpets and we love seeing her in form fitting gowns, but it’s nice to finally see those rock hard abs of hers at the beach. Congrats to the mom to be, and we can’t wait to see bikini shots this summer with your new baby bump!

#2. Cameron Diaz

When we think of Hollywood actress at the beach, we think of Cameron. Who else would be able to join you surfing, throw a ball around in the sand, and still look great doing it all. Cameron’s our go-to gal for the funny girlfriend you always want to take to the bars with you, or out dancing, but now we’re ready to jet-set anywhere with her, as long as it’s in a bikini. This star’s sporty figure matches her it-girl personality to a ‘t’. This bikini, a coveted style by L*Space Swimwear, has been featured on covers and inside pages of magazines but we love it on Cameron, it suits her style perfectly. (And, we just envy those abs!)

#1. LeAnn Rimes

It’s no secret this singer loves the sun, the sand, the ocean, and, most importantly, bikinis. LeAnn has been spotted in a bikini more times this year than any other celeb. Out of all her looks, this one tops our list. We love the apricot color against LeAnn’s perfect tan and we would die to have her perfectly toned arms. Paired with the best pair of sunnies and a smile, we’re sure she’s enjoying her vacation getaway, most likely with hotter than hot hubby Eddie Cibrian. LeAnn, hats off to you for topping this year’s list of hottest celebrity bikini bodies for 2012, we are now placing your picture on our fridge as motivation to maintain our diet and hit up the gym.

      I think they should've added Nina Dobrev. She has a great body too, but I don't think she's been to the beach this year.

      I think she would, too if she had hips. Kim K. looks like she's got pretty good hips and curves.

      Leann rhymes would have a much better body if she had hips though!
