PHOTOS: Celebs Kick Off Summer By Busting Out Bikinis

Summer doesn't officially start until the June 21, but you wouldn't know if from looking at the women in our Instagram feeds.

Now that the dreary start of spring has given way to sunnier skies, everybody seems to be shedding their clothing faster than spring-breakers at last call. And so too are many of our favorite (and enviably toned) celebrities on social media, including several supermodels, singers and celebrities.

First up, on May 25, was pregnant model and former wrestling personality Stacy Keibler, who photographed herself sunbathing her baby bump at the beach. (We're pretty certain this child will burst forth from its mother's womb with a nice golden glow.)

"Sun, sand and serenity," Keibler captioned the photo, referring to her weekend retreat as "the perfect #babymoon."

Next up was LeAnn Rimes, who spent part of her Memorial Day trying to recreate the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue with friends, all of them posing with their posteriors towards the camera:

"Models in training @SInow" she tweeted along with the pic, adding the hashtag "happymemorialdayboys," among others.

Later, actual swimsuit model Alessandra Ambrosio showed her followers how it's done, showing off her strapless bikini during a Memorial Day cookout:

"Who wants some BBQ?" she asked in the caption, presumably aware that her admirers would barely notice the grill in the background.

Of course, Jessica Simpson couldn't resist flaunting her ever-shrinking physique in not one but two similar snapshots, each time posing with her husband's golf club (which, thin as it is, is already beginning to eclipse her stick-skinny legs).

"If I'm in a bathing suit I should pose proudly," she captioned the second snapshot.

And finally, "The Fast and The Furious 6" actress (and former flame of Cara Delevingne) Michelle Rodriguez documented her bikini-clad body on an aquatic adventure this Tuesday:

We're sure the rest of Hollywood will be sharing more swimsuit selfies as we inch closer to the actual first day of summer. And of course, we'll be there to document when the clothes come off.

In the meantime, happy late spring, everybody!
