It goes without saying that Independence Day is a huge national holiday, and a host of celebrities celebrated by dressing up in red, white and blue, attending cookouts and more.
Kim Kardashian perhaps went a bit overboard in showing her national pride. The reality star sported an array of American flag paraphernalia, including sequin shorts, a bathing suit, a hat, a fanny pack, knee-high socks and shoes, and we absolutely loved it.
Rihanna made sure to pose it up with her bestie Melissa Forde. Work it, girls!
Orange Is the New Black actress Laverne Cox spent the day shooting pool with a few friends, and they were definitely feeling themselves.
Kourtney Kardashian and Britney Spears spent Independence Day with their adorable children.
Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Solange and Missy Elliott were in hot New Orleans for Essence Festival.
You already know Taylor Swift and the gang did it up big for Independence Day. The pop starlet threw a huge party, with Nick Jonas, his brother Joe, Empire‘s Serayah, Ed Sheeran, Gigi Hadid and more stopping through.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj was in Denmark performing at the Roskilde Festival and delighted fans with her ample assets.
We see you, Nicki!
Paris Hilton, Rumer Willis and Miley Cyrus went all out in red, white and blue, while Chrissy Teigen took a patriotic photo with her dog.
Oprah had a cookout.
President Obama and the First Lady threw a Bruno Mars concert on the front lawn of the White House, and there was an awesome fireworks show.
And Teyana Taylor and Iman Shumpert spent the day together in what looks like Vegas!
Oh, and Vanessa Williams got married (although this photo is old)!
How’d you spend Independence Day?
