Posted Friday July 4, 2014 7:03 AM GMT

Fire up the grill and crack open a cold one because it’s time to cut loose and celebrate the land of the free on the Fourth of July!

And in honor of the Independence Day holiday, we’ve collected 20 beautiful bikini beauties who take full advantage of the freedom to be sexy.

1. Candice Swanepoel- We sure are glad to have this South African stunner on American shores these days. Back in May she blessed Instagram with a steamy snap from a bikini beach photo shoot.

2. Kylie Jenner- Although she got her start in reality television, Kylie Jenner is a worldwide trendsetter thanks to photos like this one. Jenner constantly keeps social media outlets supplied with plenty of pictures that scream, “Yeah, I’m 16. So what?!”

3. Bar Refaeli- In April, Israeli goddess Bar Refaeli reminded the rest of the globe why she’s one of the most-sought-after posers around. Barely covering her lady parts, Refaeli’s black and pink two-piece swim suit photo left just enough to the imagination to keep fans wanting more.

4. Kate Upton - As if she wasn’t hot enough on earth, Kate Upton was taken up into the atmosphere in a Zero G aircraft for a very special photo shoot for Sports Illustrated. And without gravity weighing her down, Ms. Upton floated freely while wearing a barely-there bikini.

5. Kim Kardashian - It’s important to take a vacation from time to time, and following her wedding to Kanye West, Kim enjoyed two holidays back-to-back. The “Disaster Movie” dame and her new hubby hit up Punta Mita, Mexico where Kim showed off her curvy physique in a pair of Instagram bikini selfies.

6. Jessica Simpson - Making the most of her Memorial Day, Jessica proved all the naysayers wrong by slipping into a sexy one-piece swimsuit and showing off the results of all the hard work to lose her baby weight. Eric Johnson is a lucky guy!

7. Charlize Theron - Key West, Florida got a serious sex appeal boost in March when the “Italian Job” actress hit the beach for a photo shoot while wearing a silver two-piece ensemble. Of course, Sean Penn knows first-hand how yummy this mummy is!

8. Selena Gomez- She loves to keep her fans up-to-date on her activities, and back in May Selena shared a flirty photo on the beach in a bikini. She added the encouraging message, "Taking my power back. Can't wait to show you where I've been. I love y'all. Ps, I still obsess over pickles."

9. Irina Shayk - No stranger to beachfront photo shoots, Irina hammed it up in a cleavage-bearing getup with some pigs in Exuma, Bahamas. And yes the swine were in hog heaven!

10. Kourtney Kardashian - An avid fan of south-of-the-border activities, Kourtney celebrated her birthday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and soaked up some sun in a beautiful and flattering blue bikini.

11. Amanda Bynes - Treating herself for her 28th birthday, Amanda Bynes threw on a chartreuse bikini and headed down to Cabo San Lucas with her parents Rick and Lynn. Given the issues she’s worked through in the past, she certainly earned some rest and relaxation.

12. Gisele Bundchen - As the highest-paid poser in the industry, Gisele Bundchen gave H&M their money’s worth as she worked her mojo for the camera, sporting a white bikini for the Summer 2014 ad campaign.

13. Heidi Klum - It’s safe to say she’s never struggled with shyness, and at the end of March Heidi Klum pranced around the Bahamas in a black string bikini. No wonder she’s keeping her romantic options open!

14. Mariah Carey - Nobody loves a good selfie quite as much as Mariah, so for St. Patrick’s Day the “Someday” diva got all gussied up in a green bikini and let the camera phone snap up pictures.

15. Miley Cyrus - As a purveyor of provocative photos, Miley Cyrus posed by the pool in Dallas, Texas during her Bangerz Tour in March. Thankfully she kept her clothes on this time!

16. Ireland Baldwin - Her use of social media has served to raise her profile considerably, and Ireland Baldwin’s perky posterior post back in February certainly garnered plenty of attention.

17. LeAnn Rimes - Making off to Hawaii for a midwinter’s break, LeAnn Rimes frolicked around the beach in one of her flattering swim ensembles. Of course, husband Eddie Cibrian was standing guard nearby so as not to tempt the drooling beachgoers too much.

18. Rihanna - The smaller the outfit the better, at least that’s how Rihanna usually rolls. And for her year-end trip to her homeland of Barbados, Ri-Ri splurged on a vintage-style high-waisted two-piece bikini for her beach-going getup.

19. Rosie Huntington Whiteley - Ringing in the New Year in style, Rosie hopped a flight to Hawaii and spent the first few days of 2014 sunning herself on the beach. She even shared some shots of her swimsuit (taken by boyfriend Jason Statham) with her loyal social media followers.

20. Demi Lovato - Enjoying the calm before the storm, Demi Lovato uploaded pictures from the beach in January. The “Skyscraper” singer was conserving her energy for the big kickoff of her Neon Lights tour soon thereafter.
