Top 10 Stars Who Go All Out for the 4th of July

Look at all that red, white, and blue. Welcome to, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Stars Who Go All Out for the 4th of July.

For this list, we’ll be looking at celebrities who have been known to really show their pride on Independence Day.

#10: Jessica Simpson

Though she may have shifted her focus towards motherhood and projects other than music in recent years, Jessica Simpson remains a household name, and in her household, July 4th is clearly a big deal. Simpson has never shied away from showing her love of America, as perhaps most memorably shown in her 2005 GQ photoshoot. But it was her wedding to Eric Johnson in 2014 that earned her a spot on this list. Why? Because, you guessed it, she had it over the July 4th weekend! The happy couple celebrated both their love for each other and their country with a classic July 4th barbecue before the wedding.

#9: Busy Philipps

There are few stars who know how to work it on social media quite like this past resident of “Dawson’s Creek” and “Cougar Town.” Philipps rarely fails to deliver the goods to her followers - and July 4th is no exception! In 2017, she posted this awesome pic of her and her besties in front of a house that had been seriously decked out for the occasion - complete with star-spangled tiki torches! Unfortunately, the party got dramatic when she had to jump in the pool fully-clothed to save her daughter Cricket from “go[ing] over the edge of the infinity pool”. Thankfully, everyone was fine, and there was even time for a post-party Instagram post!

#8: Paris Hilton

This heiress-turned-reality star-turned-social media star/DJ has never been one to miss an opportunity to show off her figure or party, and on July 4th, she apparently likes to do both! In 2015, she wore an American flag bikini top on the red carpet when arriving at the TAO Beach Club’s 4th of July party at the Venetian in Las Vegas. There, she proceeded to party hard while DJing for the similarly patriotic attendees. Other years, she’s been known to host parties in Malibu with celebrity friends like Christina Milian and Amber Rose, often wearing similarly themed outfits.

#7: Mariska Hargitay

This “Law & Order: SVU” star might play it serious and stern when in her role as Olivia Benson, but when the Fourth of July rolls around, she’s all smiles and silly attire. On more than one occasion, she’s been photographed in a sea of revelers, clearly having the time of her life. Despite having been born and raised in California, in recent years she’s been known to celebrate American Independence Day in Nantucket alongside family, friends, and fellow celebs like Debra Messing. She’s clearly not above a little horseplay either, if her involvement in the Nantucket 4th of July Water Fight is any indication.

#6: Vanessa Hudgens

Watch this post at your own risk, knowing that you’ll likely be overwhelmed with FOMO. Partying it up poolside with her friends, and dancing to the beat in a star-spangled one piece and an adorable hat, Hudgens brought her followers in on the fun by sharing this short video documenting how she spent July 4th 2017. Hudgens almost always shares a pic to celebrate the occasion, and in 2017, it looks as if she and the crew opted to skip the pretense and lavishness seen at other celebrity parties and just keep it cool and casual by the pool. Not a bad choice!

#5: Christina Aguilera

In 2017, this curvaceous and soulful singer wished America and her fans a very happy 4th of July with a sexy red, white, and blue swimsuit photoshoot. Lounging in the pool in a variety of alluring poses and sporting subtly heart-shaped shades, she’s a vision. Proving that she does more than pose on Independence Day, though, Aguilera also took some fun photos of her and her partner, Matthew Rutler, goofing around on the dock with kids and the dog. All decked out in their 4th of July finery, they look like they’re having a genuinely great day celebrating by the water!

#4: Hilary Duff

Now THIS is what we call a 4th of July party. The one-time Disney star clearly likes to keep it simple, intimate, and fun when celebrating American Independence Day. And how does she do it? By partying just like the rest of us. Silly hats and glasses, red plastic cups, poolside attire and red, white, and blue leis - what more could you ask for? Based on her snap stories, Duff’s 4th of July festivities looks like a family-friendly event for revelers of all ages - and really, at the end of the day, that’s what it’s all about.

#3: Debra Messing

Like, Mariska Hargitay, this “Will & Grace” star has also been known to visit Nantucket, Massachusetts to celebrate the 4th of July - though she kicks up a few more notches when it to dressing for the occasion. Spotted here with actress, author, and comedian Ali Wentworth wearing matching American flag dresses, you can see that she really goes all out. Red, white, and blue tassels in her hair, star stickers, and beaded necklaces really round out the look to say… it’s the 4th of July, and we came to have fun! On other occasions, she’s been known to hit the beach or open seas in honor of the occasion.

#2: Kristen Bell

Let’s be honest here… everything that Kristen bell and Dax Shepard do, they do in style. And the 4th of July is no exception. Though we suspect that they probably have an awesome Independence Day every year, our favorite example of patriotic revelry courtesy of social media’s favorite funny couple is without a doubt this Instagram pic from 2017. Rocking matching American flag onesie pajamas and posing in front of an inflatable kiddie pool, they make for an odd sight, but you can feel the love, and can assume that they proceeded to have one heck of a unique 4th of July. That being said… we doubt that their celebration ever involves firecrackers.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions

Eva Longoria

Reese Witherspoon

Tyra Banks

#1: Taylor Swift

The reigning queen of pop’s music might not be for everyone, but even the haters can’t deny the fact that she throws what look to be the best 4th of July parties around. In 2017, she seemingly skipped the festivities, but even so, she had already more than earned our number one spot with her incredible events from past years. Each year has been a little different. Sometimes it’s an intimate party with dancers and musicians from her tour, other years it’s been a star-studded guest list of Hollywood’s hottest young stars or an exclusive hangout featuring Taylor’s famous squad. Whoever’s partaking, it’s always an awesome-looking day.
