15 Ways To Do Summer Like A Celeb
Basically you're going to need all of the $$$.
Look, we hate to tell you this we really do, but you’ve been doing summer all wrong. We’ve ALL been doing summer all wrong. At least, we have if celebrities are anything to go by.
Forget everything you thought you knew, because here’s how to do summer like a famous person.
Get/pay a friend to walk backwards in front of you holding an electric fan, so that you have that ‘hair blowing in the breeze slow motion walk’ thing going on at all times. Bonus: it will stop you sweating like a mofo.
Every time someone vaguely attractive walks by, lower your sunglasses, pop your gum (you must always be chewing gum) and say something pithy like: ‘whoa momma, we’ve got ourselves a live one’.
Turn your holiday into your own personal photoshoot. See the sights? Oh honey, you ARE the sights. Hint: do not let friend know she will be your vacation photographer until you’re on the plane and it’s too late for her to escape.
Only stay in hotels that look too good to be true - with pools unfrequented by screaming children wearing armbands, fat dads covered in tattoos, and sunloungers that have seen better days.
Top Tip: before booking, ask yourself: ‘Is it instagram-friendly?’
Do not burn. Celebrities don’t do sunburn, sweetie darling. A skin version of your bikini scorched onto your red-hot skin is not a good look.
Think maximum exposure
Invest in a convertible. Only peasants drive around with an actual roof, sniping at each other because the AC is broken and the inside of the car is hotter than the literal sun.
Throw/attend a huge 4th of July party where everyone is dressed in coordinating outfits and the whole thing looks like a scene from a teen movie starring Zac Efron.
What do you mean you’re not American and the 4th of July has already passed? DO IT ANYWAY.
Think Pool Accessories
Invest in several cool pool floaties in a variety of fun shapes and sizes. We’re talking flamingos, unicorns, avocado, pizza - just leave the swan one at home, yeah? That’s so Summer 2016.
Snag handsome celebrity partner. Pose for totally #candid snaps looking loved up.
Look chic, put together, and totally unbelievably happy in all Coachella photos, rather than dishevelled dust-covered hot-faced wannabe.
Think sitting in the road with your shopping
We don't know why, we just know that you need to do it okay.
Do not even dare have a ‘girl’s pool day’ without documenting it via the form of a edgy mini-music video.
You know how you usually head to the pool with your hair scraped up in a tangled top knot and your face bare but for some sunblock and a sweaty upper lip?
Uh-uh, baby gurl, if you wanna do how celebs do you’re gonna have to call the glam squad for a full-on makeover before you head poolside.
Give birth to twins. Stage post-birth Photoshoot in front of flower wall. Do not forget veil.
Done all of that? CONGRATS - you've achieved summer celeb status.
