Here’s Why Beyoncé, Alexa & Co. Are Making Us Jealous

Oh, to be a celeb. We’d almost forgotten that around this time when we’re braving the January weather and combatting our post-party blues, the A-list lot are practically all on holiday, sunning themselves in a variety of tropical climes, or enjoying a luxe trip to a snowy mountain destination. And 2015 is no exception, it seems, clearly demonstrated by the MANY Instagram snaps filling our feeds and inciting jealousy we’re not proud of.

We suggest you look away now if you don’t want to join us on the dark side, because we’ve spent most of the day pouring over the most beautiful beaches, incredible bikini bods and glorious skies to bring you the best of the celeb hols. But, rather than feel bad about our current view (i.e a desk), we’ve decided to use these pics as serious holiday inspo. With so many discounts on flights and hotels at the moment, now is the perfect time to book your 2015 break, and we’re giving you just the push you need to do it.

The Waterhouse family might just be the best looking sisters we’ve ever seen. Suki posted various bikini snaps of herself with sisters Immy and Maddi. Given that Immy has just been signed to Next management and Maddi looks just as modelesque, we doubt it will be long before there’s a modelling hat trick in that family.

Then there’s the Brit pack abroad. And no, we’re not talking embarrassing t-shirts and socks with sandals, we’re looking at Alexa Chung with pals Nick Grimshaw, Daisy Lowe and Pixie Geldof, who are all in the Maldives making us swoon with their chic holiday style and flawless photos.

Not ones to be outdone, the Delevingne sisters are on their own (separate) vacays. Poppy D is sunning it up with Harley Viera Newton, while Cara’s in the Bahamas with a whole crew, including Zoe Kravitz. And her friends Mary Charteris and Georgia May Jagger rang in the new year together in Mustique, where Mary has been taking a series of raunchy, bottom-baring pics.

Finally, Beyoncé’s making us want to get in the hot tub thanks to her snowy selfies with husband Jay-Z, Rihanna’s showing off, er, her chest, and Olivia Palermo has just touched down in Florida with hubby Johannes Huebl. Sigh. What we’d give for a year-round, perfect (natural) tan. We’re off to browse the getaway deals online. We don’t know about you, but we’re planning our holiday pics already. Bring on the sun…
