It’s that time of year again! Hollywood’s biggest stars have been escaping the frigid winter weather and heading to the sandy beaches of tropical destinations—like Mexico, Miami Beach, and Hawaii—for some much needed down-time and of course, to show off their hard-earned bikini bodies. As Demi Moore and her family enjoyed a trip to Mexico, Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux headed to Los Cabos (one of their favorite winter destinations!) with a few of their close friends, while Bethenny Frankel and Katie Holmes headed to sunny Miami Beach. Transport yourself to the same beaches by looking through our gallery to see more bikini-clad celebrities.

Cameron Diaz has one of the best bodies in Hollywood. So when we heard that she was writing a book about nutrition, fitness, and caring for your body, we immediately pre-ordered it. The end result, The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body, available now, excitingly exceeded our expectations.
We caught up with the star to chat about the experience of writing her first book, her best piece of healthy living advice for women, and what BFF Drew Barrymore is really like.
You can never go wrong with black and white – it’s the most trustworthy color-combo, which makes each B&W buy a guilt-free purchase. Black is forever in style and winter-white is the perfect way to stand out in a crowd without an overdose of sparkle. Not to mention, black and white are equally seasonless – that statement “you can’t wear white after Labor Day” is an old taboo.
While both colors speak volume on their own, our favorite color-combo is the two together (think: houndstooth, polka-dots, tweed). That’s why we shopped for our favorite black and white pieces to gather everything from snow-hued clutches to leather-accented miniskirts. So, will you take a graphic black and white approach with window-pane printed pants or go for a subtly sophisticated look in a crisp white blazer? Shop the gallery to find the piece that speaks to you.
