Celebrities certainly know how to kick back! Before summer even started, stars like Sofia Vergara, Demi Lovato, Kendall Jenner, and Katy Perry were showing off their cool new beach floats. It seems they’ve graduated from swans (like last year) to cherries, hot lips, and — the best yet — a bucking bull.

Jenna Dewan

Oops! “Sexy unicorn fail,” wrote the actress, who was in a red string bikini when she accidentally plunged. We wonder if her hubby, Channing Tatum, captured this winning shot. Whoever it was, thanks! (Photo: Jenna Dewan via Instagram)

Tiffany Trump

The first daughter certainly had her choice of pool floats — there are about 10 — but she chose love. May it catch on in her circle. (Photo: Tiffany Trump via Instgram)

Sofia Vergara

During her Fourh of July fete, a fully clothed Sofia Vergara climbed aboard a tropical bird for a spin as an amused Joe Manganiello looked on. Yes, she matched the float. (Photo: Sofia Vergara via Instagram)

Neil Patrick Harris

The A Series of Unfortunate Events star worked in a plug for Heineken as he chilled on “Pegasus” in the Hamptons over the Fourh of July holiday. Stars are brilliant — they even get paid while they are reclining on pool floats drinking beer. (Photo: Neil Patrick Harris via Instagram)

Jordin Sparks

It’s always taco day at Chez Sparks! The singer showed off her food float with a “Yasssss.” Indeed. (Photo: Jordin Sparks via Instagram)


Yes, there is a bald eagle float — and new mama Ciara rode it proudly. “#4thOfJuly,” was the caption. (Photo: Ciara via Instagram)

Miley Cyrus

The singer captured her parents, Billy Ray and Tish, clowning in pool float heaven. “Mama and Daddy playin catch w Nemo!” Miley wrote. “Life is beautiful! … Never grow up!!!!!” If they are anything like their famous daughter, they won’t! (Photo: Miley Cyrus via Instagram)

Lea Michele

It’s a jungle out there… in Lea Michele’s pool. The actress reclined in this very green tube for some Memorial Day fun. (Photo: Lea Michele via Instagram)

Kendall Jenner

Only Kendall Jenner, pictured here on a yacht in Cannes on May 24, would match her swimsuit with her pool float! The model looked like she was posing for a photo shoot while perched on a pink flamingo in a retro bikini. Just a day in the life! (Photo: Kendall Jenner via Instagram)

Lindsey Vonn

Filed this under famous people problems: “Nothing like trying to look cute next to this super model,” the skiing superstar wrote as she posed with Bella Hadid on a flamingo in France. (Photo: Lindsey Vonn via Instagram)

Demi Lovato

Multiple pieces of sexy swimwear were in order for Demi Lovato‘s April vacation. This pool float was the cherry on top of a great trip. (Photo: Demi Lovato via Instagram)

Irina Shayk

Whoa mama! Irina Shayk used this photo to make her return to social media after having a baby with Bradley Cooper. Reclining on a floatie in the shape of lips, the model, who had given birth less than a month earlier, wrote, “Pre-sunset. #currentsituation” on April 18. (Photo: Irina Shayk via Instagram)

Reese Witherspoon

We believe the Oscar winner when she writes, “Wild women: Wild nights.” Reese and her pal/Big Little Lies co-star look a little zonked during their “#girlsnight.” (Photo: Reese Witherspoon via Instagram)

Katy Perry

Katy Perry went VIP for her 2017 Coachella trip in April! She stayed in a posh pad with a pool and an array of floats to choose from, including a seahorse. But do goddesses ride seahorses? Well, this one does whatever she wants. (Photo: Katy Perry via Instagram)

Avril Lavigne

Similarly, Avril Lavigne is surrounded by all kinds of flashy, fun floats yet she opted for a simple recliner during her “day off from studio sessions” on April 22. Sometimes ya gotta go for comfort over coolness. (Photo: Avril Lavigne via Instagram)

Denise Richards

Denise Richards is such a big-hearted animal lover that she even gives up her floats to her pups — in this case Luke the dog. As for what he was riding on in Denise’s pool on April 23, it looks like one of those cute red, white, and blue popsicle floats. (Photo: Denise Richards via Instagram)

Sofia Vergara

If you are are swimming at the Vergara-Manganiello compound, you have your choice of fun rides. In the spring, she showed off this bull, which wasn’t exactly a leisurely ride. She got bucked off. (Photo: Sofia Vergara via Instagram)

The Modern Family star’s flamingo, on which she was seen a few days earlier, provided a little more serenity. If only she would have stopped waving her arm and relaxed. (Image: Sofia Vergara via Instagram)

Shay Mitchell

The Pretty Little Liars alum matched her swimsuit to her float. “Palm Springs Pink was the theme of this mornings swim session,” she wrote. Only in Hollywood! (Photo: Shay Mitchell via Instagram)

Julie Bowen

Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen tells so many stories about her three sons that this scene doesn’t surprise us in the least. “Unicorn vs Narwhal,” she captioned this close call snapped on May 11. (Photo: Julie Bowen via Instagram)

January Jones

There’s nothing wrong with a classic. January Jones is all like: You can keep your bull floats, hot lips, and cherries. She went old-school on a basic white raft on May 21, though her bikini is anything but. Roar! (Image: January Jones via Instagram)
