Ahead of the summer release of Girls Trip, we couldn’t help but reminiscence about some of our favorite celebrities who enjoy a good vacation. Ryan (Regina Hall), Sasha (Queen Latifah), Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Dina (Tiffany Haddish) give us instant clique envy with their insanely fun adventure to New Orleans for ESSENCE Fest, but they’re only a reflection of reality.
In between work, for bachelorette getaways, or even post break-up there’s nothing better than getting away with your best circle of friends.
See the celebrities who have traveled on their own girls’ trips, below.
While planning her wedding, Ciara took a trip to Las Vegas with her friends Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams and Yolanda Frederick.
Gabrielle Union shared this throwback photo of a vacation she took with her besties, Sanaa Lathan and Essence Atkins.
To release some steam in the midst of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” drama, Porsha Williams headed down to Jamaica with friends.
For her 30th birthday, Solange traveled to New Mexico with her sister, Beyoncé and best gal pals. But girls trips are something Solange does on a regular basis with her sis— like this epic one with Melina Matsoukas in 2013.
Before the marriage and friendship drama, Tamar Braxton, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, Kandi Burruss and Shekinah Jo Anderson enjoyed several vacations together.
Yes, Chanel Iman probably spends half the year in vacation-like places. But we enjoy it most when we see the beauty with friends.
No one does girls trips like Rihanna. They’re usually somewhere expensive, involve her same clique of girls (Melissa Forde, above), and show off her goofy side. We love this video from Italy.
Girls Trip premieres Friday, July 21 at theaters nationwide.
