Never mind grilling hot dogs, catching The Patriot on cable, or fighting off neighborhood kids shooting off fireworks on your lawn. Gorgeous stars like Emily Ratajkowski and Erin Heatherton (above) are showing us how to do the Fourth of July right.
They're relishing their hard-fought freedom to strip down to American flag bikinis and show off their national treasures on Instagram. Amber waves of grain are great and all but so are these star-spangled beauties.

Emily Ratajkowski didn't get the memo to wear red, white, and blue, but we're perfectly fine with her choices regardless.
Slovakian stunner Adriana Cernanova is toasting her adopted country in the Hamptons.
Kendall Jenner wished us a Happy Fourth from the comfort of the bedroom.
Model Ping Hue is enjoyed the sweeter things in life this weekend.
Leanna Decker got festive with a patriotic frozen cocktail. Looks cold and sweet.
Georgia-born beauty Elizabeth Turner is celebrating America, from Monaco. That is dedication.
