MIAMI BEACH — While Christmas and New Year’s are often associated with snow and chilly weather, a number of big celebs have eschewed the traditional holiday celebrations to cavort instead on Miami Beach!
Among the most stunning to grace Florida’s shores this holiday season was 23-year-old Puerto Rican model Alexandra Rodriguez. She was spied enjoying some fun in the sun on Monday, sporting an eye-popping red two-piece that left very little to the imagination.
Rodriguez additionally wore a white crochet cover and stylish shades when taking a break from catching rays.
The model’s star is definitely on the rise; she’s been featured in music videos for the likes of Pitbull and Austin Mahone and has over 140,000 Instagram followers.
As it happens, the videos aren’t Rodriguez’s only link to the music world. She was seen in July spending time at the beach with pop superstar Justin Bieber, and was even at one point wearing the music idol’s T-shirt, prompting many to speculate that they were a fledgling couple.
Bieber, however, has renewed his on-again-off-again relationship with singer Selena Gomez.
Also gracing the beaches of Miami on New Year’s Day was 21-year-old model Hailey Baldwin.
Baldwin arrived in town for Christmas sporting her usual blonde locks, but as of an Instagram post on New Year’s Eve, she revealed her new pink ‘do!
Baldwin’s stunning two-piece matched her light pink hair as she laid out in the sun at Miami Beach on Monday.
The model—daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and nephew of megastar Alec Baldwin—seemed fully at ease relaxing on the beach with some gal-pals.
In addition to her sparse beachwear, Baldwin wore gold earrings, large-framed black sunglasses and lipstick to match her overall pink theme.
Yet another model—the Dutch TV host Sylvie Meis, decked out in a body-hugging gold swimsuit—turned heads at Miami Beach on the first day of the year.
But Miami isn’t only for models: Also present were YouTube personality Lele Pons (hanging with pal Inanna Sarkis) and famous musician and actress Teyana Taylor, who showed off her rock-hard abs while enjoying the weather with young daughter Iman Tayla Shumpert, Jr.
Winter wonderlands are great, but sunny beach vacays are hard to beat!
