The most iconic American flag bikinis of all time

In honor of our nation getting its independence from its overbearing British parents who def wouldn’t approve of all the bikini pics on Insta, here are the most iconic American flag bikinis of all time.

And by all time we mean the last couple of decades because bikinis weren’t even widely popular in the United States until the 1960s.

Merry America day, fam.

Mariah Carey

Does it get much better than Mariah Carey on a yacht in an American flag print bikini?

No, no it doesn’t.

Welcome to the good life.

Lady Gaga


I think we can all agree that “Telephone” is one of Lady Gaga’s best videos. And this strapless, Wonder Woman-esque American flag bikini inspired a new generation of humans to actually want to dress up for the 4th of July next year.

It’s eensy, it’s teensy, but honestly who can even look at the bikini because those abs are everything.

Bikinis: they’re not just for showing off your boobs.



This isn’t the most traditional American flag bikini, but that’s part of what makes it so iconic.

Also it’s Gisele.

She could make a pair of cargo shorts iconic if she really wanted to.

Katy Weaver

Now I know it’s a stretch to call Katy Weaver a celebrity, but her t-shirt American flag bikini is a classic.

These kinds of shirts are iconic corny beachwear, and while you probably don’t own one because let’s be real, it doesn’t change the fact that beach body boxy t-shirts are an American staple.

Michelle Williams and Kirsten Dunst


Now technically these red, white & blue getups from Michelle and Kirsten aren’t bikinis, but these tops could be bikini tops. And they’re cute af.

Yes, they look like something a teenage child would wear, but hey, we were all teenage children once. Unless you’re a cyborg in which case, please don’t kill me. I have so much left to live for.

Alyson Hannigan, Tara Reid, Shannon Elizabeth and Mena Suvari

These were some of the most bodacious babes of the early 2000s and here they all are putting their own unique twist on the classic American bikini.

Jessica Simpson


It’s hard to choose what the best part of this photo is.

The fact that Jessica Simpson used to be on magazine covers or the casual juxtaposition of love and war as symbolized by her thotty camo pants and her peace sign.

Cindy Crawford

Sometimes the most simple American flag bikinis have the most dramatic impact.
