2014’s Bodies To Beat: The 12 Hottest Celebrity Figures
With a new year comes a whole new set of enviable Hollywood figures. While some of the lovely ladies on our list have become mainstays in the fashion, beauty and fitness worlds already, there are certainly a few new women the world should take notice of. And though staring at these gorgeous women might fill us with a little bit of jealousy, we’re also hoping it kicks us into high gear with our resolution to get it right, get it tight in 2014. So without further adieu, here’s a look at 2014’s hottest celebrity figures.
Halle Berry’s body has been one of the most envious in Hollywood for a good 20 years now — not to mention through two babies. Halle keeps it slender and toned and has never had a bad red carpet moment thanks to her right frame.
Kelly Rowland’s name is no longer synonymous with Destiny’s Child. Nowadays all we think about are abs — killer abs.
This is probably the least surprising inclusion of any celebrity ever on a hot figures list, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t include Queen Bey. The beautiful wife of rapper Jay-Z and the hot mama of Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce has the epitome of a showstopping physique. The singer embraced her curves unlike the majority of celebrities had before her and won the praise of men and women as far as the eye could see. Beyonce’s healthy self-image and focus on maintaining a fit body are unlikely to change in 2014, and definitely earn her a spot on our list.
Though her music career has certainly had some highs and lows, Ciara remains one of R&B’s most flawless and fashion-forward stars. Her statuesque frame and penchant for style has made her a muse for brands as chic as Givenchy and has made her a must-see addition on any red carpet. And while she recently announced that she will be expecting her first child with fiancé Future, we know that she is going to rock that bump like no one’s business. And let’s not even talk about what her post-baby bod will look like. #Jealous
We’re only a couple months into 2014, but it goes without saying that Lupita Nyong’O is one of the year’s biggest stars and most stunning additions to Hollywood. The Yale grad made her big screen debut in the highly acclaimed “12 Years A Slave” and has already become a red carpet favorite. But probably less gushed over is just the sort of physique Lupita is rocking. Those toned arms and flat tummy should be the envy of many Hollywood starlets. If ya’ll haven’t taken notice of Lupita yet, now might be a good time to do so.
Much like Yonce, Colombian hottie Sofia Vergara was a no-brainer to include on our list of bodacious bods. At 41 years old, Sofia looks better than most people half her age and there is certainly no sign of her body taking any steps backward. And while some of best assets are all genetics, Sofia admits that hitting the gym is a necessary part of life –- though it’s definitely not one of her favorite pastimes. She told The New York Times, “If there are women out there like me who don’t love it, you have to make a conscious decision to do it if you want to age well and live longer.” Preach, girl!
My, oh my, has this little lady gone a long way! Just to think when some of us were in high school we saw a very young Maria Menounos on our classroom televisions delivering the news. Today she is one of television’s most stunning –- and grounded — on-air personalities. Maria told Fitness magazine all about her early struggles with weight gain (she even got up to a size 14 when she was in college) and how committed she is to healthy eating habits and working out. And boy does it show. With a killer body and brains to boot, Maria is quite the inspiration in a totally hot package.
Just three months after the “Homeland” hottie gave birth to her first child, Morena Baccarin dazzled on the red carpet at the SAG Awards. And good lord, look at that figure! Just give this Brazilian-American babe another few months and there’s no telling the heights of her hotness.
Oh RiRi, oh RiRi. Can you all remember those “Pon de Replay” days? Who would have thought we’d be staring at an edgier, much more naked and much more Mary Jane accepting version of this Barbadian princess. But regardless of her transformation, there is no denying that Rihanna has one of the most coveted and incredible celebrity bodies out there.
She may have just lent her voice to the Oscar-buzzed about film “Her,” but this year audiences will see Scarlett rocking that trademark catsuit as Natasha Romanoff in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” So if there were any questions about whether ScarJo has still got it, we think those will be answered pretty quickly.
One of the more under-the-radar stunners on our list, Rosario Dawson is sure to be among 2014’s hottest bods. Much like fellow honoree Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson will appear in the sequel “Sin City” and if the first film was any indication, we can expect Rosario to leave little to the imagination and once again stun with her toned bod and unique look.
Probably the most unexpected selection on our list is Danai Gurira. “The Walking Dead” star may not be a household name quite yet, but there is no denying that she has a figure that puts many of her television counterparts to shame. With those toned arms and incredibly tight tummy, Danai has a body that we could all take a few pointers from.
