Kim Kardashian gave birth to her daughter, North West, less than six months ago, and since then she's been all about showing off her postbaby body. She hasn't been shy about wanting to flaunt her hard-earned figure, after undergoing so much scrutiny during her pregnancy, even proclaiming on Keeping Up With the Kardashians: "I just wanna walk down the street fully naked. I'm gonna be the sexy hot mom." Kim hasn't exactly been going naked in public, but she has been showing plenty of skin — namely cleavage — and now she's baring even more. Kim is front and center in a tiny white bikini on the cover of Us Weekly, and we want to know what you think. Are you behind her bikini debut, or have you already seen enough?
Beyoncé recently shared photos from a girls' getaway with her sister, Solange Knowles. The two singers donned high-waisted bikinis as they explored their vacation spot and also changed into shorts and tank tops to sit in the back of a truck and drink Red Stripe beer together. It isn't clear when this vacation took place as Beyoncé is currently in LA, where she played a concert last night. Her husband, Jay Z, shared big news yesterday, one day ahead of his 44th birthday, when he announced that he and Beyoncé were going to attempt going vegan. "This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a 'plant-based breakfast' everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought," Jay wrote on his blog. "There's something spiritual to me about it being my 44th birthday and the serendipity behind the number of days in this challenge; 22 (2+2=4) coupled with the fact that the challenge ends on Christmas Day…It just feels right!" He added that he didn't know if he and Bey would be sticking to their vegan diet after Christmas, but he was interested in the "spiritual and physical challenge." He also asked vegan fans to send him recipes.
One person in the Knowles clan who might not be trying the vegan challenge is Solange, who said she went vegan back when she was in a "weird Rasta" phase in her teen years. She said in an interview back in 2010, "I definitely would not do that sh*t — at all!"
Britney Spears took to Instagram on Sunday to share a sexy snap of herself in a blue bikini with the caption, "Gonna get my tan on in the desert in between shots on the #WorkBitch set today. It's HOT out here people!!!! #desert #heatwave #WorkBitchDay2." Britney is currently shooting the music video for her upcoming single "Work Bitch" and has been dropping hints about the song and the clip via social media all week. She tweeted a photo from the set on Saturday (see below) and told fans that she "danced her ass off" during the filming. Britney's new single is reportedly part of the big announcement she'll be making on Sept. 17, which is also the day she is set to perform on Good Morning America. For the past few weeks, Britney's official website has featured a countdown with the message, "All eyes on me," which has fans speculating that the big secret could have to do with a new album and her upcoming residency in Las Vegas.
Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson recently implied Gwyneth Paltrow's body is not-so-perfect. But based on a new photo shared by Stella McCartney, Gwyneth had us fooled! In an interview, Gwyneth's longtime trainer Tracy explained how she fixed Gwyneth's alleged "long" butt, saying: "Her butt was long, and she had outer thigh problems. Gwyneth is lucky because she's really tall, so she can hide it really well in clothes."
Without the help of any such clothes, Gwyneth looked amazing as she jumped for joy to model Stella's bikini. On Wednesday, the British designer shared the playful snap of friend Gwyneth Paltrow on Instagram, writing: "Sexy lady in Stella swimwear! Summer never stop!" Based on her recent adventures, we bet Gwyneth would love an endless Summer, too. This past weekend she was all smiles as she brought her family to Authors Night in East Hampton, NY, for a book signing. The actress-turned-chef was on hand to autograph her cookbook, It's All Good, with her kids, Apple and Moses, and husband, Chris Martin offering their support. Before mixing business with pleasure stateside, Gwyneth and her family relaxed in Spain in July, exploring the town of Majorca. Let the bikini fun continue!
Taylor Swift hit the water with friend Ed Sheeran near her home in Watch Hill, RI, today. She donned a black-and-white bikini as she made her way around the marina with a group of friends on a paddleboard. This isn't the first time that Taylor has gone paddleboarding in Rhode Island — she hit the water last week with two female friends and reportedly announced that she had a "successful landing." Taylor and Ed were taking some time off after they had completed a successful show in nearby Foxborough, MA, on Saturday. Taylor had a special treat up her sleeve for the New England show as she brought on guest Carly Simon to sing "You're So Vain" together on stage. After the performance, Taylor tweeted, "Got to sing 'You're So Vain' with Carly Simon at Gillette Stadium tonight! Unreal. I could not possibly look up to her more."
