Kylie Jenner & Stassie Karanikolaou
January looks perfectly poised on top of her floaty, but if you check out her Instagram video, you’ll see getting there was not so easy.

Tired of your Instagram feed being clogged with unbelievable pool views and perfectly-posed float-oshoots? So is Kourtney, who jokes that “float photos are so overrated” while soaking in some sun atop her Funboy flamingo with friend Larsa Pippin.
When you’re a Victoria’s Secret angel, you have a set of wings for everything, even an inflatable pair for pool days.
LINDSEY VONN AND BELLA HADID
Lindsey captioned her poolside pic with Bella, “Nothing like trying to look cute next to this super model 😜.” But the Olympic skier held her own, all while sharing the popular Sunnylife float without capsizing.
Most celebrities only show you the “after” shot of them swanning around (so to speak) on their floats. But Sofia does them all one better by showing the multi-step “before” process that got her to the finished result.
As if things weren’t magical enough in Salma’s pool, she notes that there’s also a merman under her swan raft.
You know you’re having the best summer ever when you’re spending so much time with your swan raft, you’re on a first name basis with her.
She’s ahead of the fashion pack in every respect, right down to her pool float – she got her hands on an early edition of FunBoy’s collaboration with photog Gray Malin for her latest serene (and sexy, of course) dip.
Jamie goes for the gold – swan, that is, managing to look perfectly poised and put-together while cruising around a swimming pool (fully clothed!) at a Revolve party in the Hamptons.
TAYLOR SWIFT & CALVIN HARRIS
Not that we should be surprised, of course – Taylor invented the term “Swan Goals” on her first-ever Instagram with (now-ex) boyfriend Calvin Harris.
DIANE KRUGER & JOSHUA JACKSON
Leave it to the one-of-a-kind style star to get her celeb-loved poolside accessory in a surprising hue: Hot pink!
The life of a supermodel can be very taxing, so we can’t blame the star for wanting to kick back and relax on a pool swan once in a while.
Okay, sure, Louise is posing with a flamingo, but what is a flamingo, really, if not a really festive swan?
Emmy achieves the celebrity summer trifecta, posing on A) a swan raft wearing B) a white bikini and C) a flower crown.
The Kardashians’ youngest sis doesn’t have to be in her shot to give you summer envy – she just needs to show you her amazing view.
Kourtney follows Khloé’s lead, sharing a swan shot depicting a friend (and a pretty fabulous backyard). “Sunday funday. Ps: my legs didn’t magically double in length and shrink in circumference. These belong to @allierizzo,” she wrote.
Shay also falls into the “team flamingo” camp – and raises the bar for anyone looking to stage one of these photoshoots in their own backyard.
By our estimate, the Victoria’s Secret model has posted 33,253 bikini photos over the years – but this one stands out for sheer FOMO value.
There’s plenty of Southern Charm to be found in the show’s star’s Instagram post – between the crystal-clear water, retro bikini and her big smile, she’s giving us major “perfect Saturday” vibes.
