Every summer, the tabloids (we’re looking at you, Star magazine) publish their “Best” and “Worst” beach body lists — low-brow round-ups that are the guiltiest of guilty pleasures, but addictive and page-turning none the less. This year, we decided to get in on the action. Yesterday, we showed you the worst celebrity swimwear pics, and today we’ve got a batch of the best.
Since choosing swimwear that “works best for your body” can be tricky, and stories about the topic are often incredibly boring, here’s some visual inspiration instead. Whether it’s floral prints on Audrina Patridge (a veteran “Best Body” lister), or a bright bikini on neon-lover Jessica Alba, our slideshow above showcases this season’s best swimwear.
