The stars are starting the new year right: in the sunshine. Hollywood's biggest celebrities have been heading to warmer weather and the beautiful beaches of tropical destinations—like Turks and Caicos, Mexico, and Brazil—for some fun under the sun and relaxation, flaunting their hard-earned bikini bodies in the process. Alessandra Ambrosio (in Luli Fama) vacationed with her family in Brazil, while Jamie Chung (in Mikoh) and her new fiancé Bryan Greenberg enjoyed an enviable trip to Turks and Caicos.
