How all your favorite stars celebrated the Fourth of July, so you can keep the party going
On Thursday, Americans across the country celebrated the Fourth of July. There were parades, picnics, sparklers, and, of course, repeat listens of Katy Perry’s “Firework.” Some donned their best red, white, and blue attire, and others chowed down on as many hot dogs as they could eat. No matter how you celebrated, it was a day (and an entire weekend) to honor the country’s birthday, reflect on what our nation can do better, and take in the best of what summer has to offer.
It also wouldn’t be a national holiday without some seriously epic FOMO thanks to social media. Celebrities from Mindy Kaling to Kiernan Shipka shared posts of their Fourth of July weekends, and we’ve collected some of our favorites for your viewing pleasure.
Some partied poolside.
Mindy Kaling shared a hilarious video of herself enjoying a “big summer pool party,” which turned out to be a one-woman affair. That’s the best kind of pool party if you ask us. Lucy Hale seemed to think so, too. She also shared pictures of herself relaxing solo in the water—and we kind of want to snag her doughnut float for ourselves.
Others celebrated with families.
Chrissy Teigen posed for a family photo on vacation, complete with red and blue balloons. Reese Witherspoon, meanwhile, shared a patriotic boomerang with her son, Tennessee. We’d say her festive look was red, white, and blonde. Jennifer Lopez posed with her whole soon-to-be official family with Alex Rodriguez.
Some stars celebrated America’s birthday abroad
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star, Kiernan Shipka, spent the day in Rome, attending a Fendi runway show. Zendaya was also in Rome. Joe Jonas partied American-style in France, presumably still on his honeymoon with Sophie Turner. The singer even managed to find a Coors Light.
Nick Jonas shared a festive #TBT.
He posted a shot from a 2018 Fourth of July barbecue, with all Jonas brothers and their partners in attendance.
Shay Mitchell showed off her bikini baby bump.
The Pretty Little Liars star recently announced she’s six-months pregnant, and she’s definitely not letting that stop her holiday fun.
Padma Lakshmi made a statement with pie.
Lakshmi cooked up a pie with a strong political message. Her American flag-inspired creation read “Close the camps,” in reference to the immigrant detention centers at the border.
Selma Blair’s post was punny.
She shared a picture of a “hot dog”—literally.
Irina Shayk struck a daring pose.
Seriously, how is she standing like that?
Kendall Jenner made us jealous by spotting dolphins.
This boat cruise looks like vacation goals.
Amy Schumer also celebrated on a boat.
“Bond, Gold Bond,” she jokingly captioned her picture.
Bella Thorne went for a relaxing swim.
Thorne looks totally zen.
All of these celebrity celebrations are giving us serious FOMO. Next year, Mindy, we’ll totally join your star-studded, one-woman pool party.
