15 Patriotic Goddesses Show How to Wear the American Flag

If burning the flag is a crime, these lovely ladies deserve a pardon.

Every July, the greatest wardrobe invention this side of 1776 emerges for a hot second: the American flag bikini. And this year has turned out to be a particularly Star-Spangled one. From the bombshells of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit edition to the angels of Victoria’s Secret runways, the hottest women in the world (or, well, America) are donning their stars and stripes and celebrating the home of the brave. (And posting the proof to Instagram.) So read on, and once you’re done celebrating freedom yourself, be sure to check out the 15 Instagram goddesses who’ve proven neon is sexy again.

Fun fact: If you run into Kyra Santoro at a bar, order her a vodka soda with two limes. It’s her favorite drink. Now, if only you knew what to make her later on

It’s difficult to tell whether Nina Agdal is more known for gracing the pages of Sports Illustrated‘s swimsuit edition or for crushing Leo DiCaprio‘s heart. (Currently, she’s reportedly dating Jack Brinkley-Cook, the son of Christie Brinkley, whom you can see more of right here.)

Another Canadian? Well, kind of. Lexi Wood has dual citizenship, so she can celebrate all she wants. (Not that anyone would dream of stopping her.)
