While you’re wilting away at your desk under harsh fluorescent lighting, these celebrities are showing off their tanned, glistening bodies as they bask in the sun on luxurious yachts and sandy beaches.

Since it’s easy to hate them for being rich, famous and gorgeous, the least they can do is get caught in a paparazzi’s frame while gallivanting about in tiny pieces of cloth.

There are still a few more months for you to impress us, rich and famous people, but here are the best bodies of the summer so far:

  • Jessica Biel graciously gave us a rearview of her pert rear-end while in Puerto Rico in June; it's a little something to remember her by before Justin Timberlake locks that down later this year.
  • Hayden Panettiere made us green with envy in this tiny bikini while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas in early July.
  • Heidi Klum kindly shared this bodacious photo with fans on Twitter earlier this summer. Guten tag!
  • The paparazzi did the creeping for us by taking this faraway shot of Scarlett Johansson in white-hot bikini while vacationing off the coast of Italy.
  • Rise and shine! (Get it?) Kim Kardashian posted this early morning photo of herself while on a photo shoot in Miami.
  • It's not quite apparent what Kelly Brook is famous for, outside of being photographed in bikinis -- like this shot from her Italian vacation this summer -- and that is totally fine.
  • Her film, "Rock of Ages," may have bombed at the box office, but Julianne Hough is blowing up the beach in this bright bikini.
  • It's understandable that this mother of two would take a photo of herself in a swimsuit -- if we looked like Jessica Alba, we would too.
  • The forever-toned Jennifer Aniston is still rockin' that bikini even at age 43.
  • It's no shocker that supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio looks good in a bikini -- what's surprising is that she gave birth just two months ago. Can someone get to work on bottling up her DNA?
  • This photo of model Candice Swanepoel in Miami is fairly self-explanatory.
