If khaki plunging one-pieces weren't already on your holiday wardrobe wish list, they are now thanks to Catherine Zeta-Jones. The Wednesday actress channelled European glamour, teaming her swimsuit with an oversized hat and sunglasses. Simply layer a floaty maxi dress over the top for a sunset Aperol Spritz trip and you've got the perfect beach daywear.

With an enviable collection of swimwear to choose from, Jennifer Lopez always looks incredible. We love it when she ditches her glam squad for an au naturel look, as she did in this snap which shows the Maid in Manhatten actress with her hair styled into an effortlessly messy bun alongside her ultra-high-waist white one-piece.

Courteney Cox wasted no time having a hot tub photoshoot with David Beckham – especially since they were wearing matching black attire. While only the top of the Friends actress' triangle bikini is visible, the thin tie straps paired with a chunky gold necklace and smokey eyes make for a very chic ensemble.
