Before you fall too deeply back into the rat race now that the extended weekend is over, we’re taking a look at the way some of our favorites celebrated the Memorial Day holiday. It’s the unofficial start to summer, so there were only a few ways to celebrate: barbecue, boisterous fun and bikinis. The latter was very much embraced by celebrity women who exemplified body confidence at pools, the beach and simply in their backyards, sharing images and videos of themselves feeling fine in some super chic swimwear. Sheryl Lee Ralph led the charge, with the 64-year-old actress strutting by the pool while on vacation looking amazing.
Ciara looked stylish in a very fun swimsuit that merged a snakeskin bikini top with a black cover-up dress.
