It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for all year, that special time when you cram all of your summer clothes into a suitcase, wake up at 4am and make the pilgrimage to the airport to jet off on holiday. And since we’ve been robbed of this tradition for the best part of two years (especially if you didn’t manage to escape pre-Omicron in 2021), when it comes to vacationing in 2022, the mantra is go hard and, hopefully, never go home. Ibiza! Capri! Los Angeles! Santorini! The world is your oyster, babe, and we suggest you wash it all down with a swig of champagne.
After all, that’s what the It Girls are doing. From Dua Lipa to Hot Girl Meg, Charli XCX to Paloma Elsesser, they’ve been living it up around the world, making pit stops in the hottest holiday spots of the year. So, in case you’re yet to book your Easyjet package deal and are in need of some inspiration for your hit list, we’ve put together this handy guide to where the international party girls are, well, partying this summer. On your marks, jet set, go!
Megan Thee Stallion
After sending Barcelona into a frenzy at Primavera, Megan made the short trip to Ibiza for the ultimate girls trip. There was wine, boat rides, hot tubs and a palatial white rooftop. Wish we were there.
Where: Bloody everywhere!
Since Dua’s in the midst of a world tour and a mega festival circuit, she’s been pretty much everywhere this year, but it seemed like she really lived it up in Spain – Madrid and Barcelona, obvs.
Where: Amalfi Coast
As a model, Leomie was naturally last seen in Paris for fashion week, but it seems like the jewel in her summer tour might be her trip to the Amalfi Coast, where she met some friendly locals. La dolce vita, eh?
Not one to be left out, Charli has also been to Ibiza and the Amalfi Coast recently. But obviously a visit to one impossibly beautiful Italian coast is not enough. The pop star also went to Capri, where she ate ravioli and watched locals dance on the edge of a cliff.
Gosh, these pop stars, eh? You just can’t keep up with ‘em. Hot Hot Bree Runway has been all about the planet this summer, from LA to New York to an unidentified sunny place. Her latest stop? Paris, clad in a head-to-toe acid rave fur look. Cosy.
Crystal clear waters, tropical juice and all your best mates in one place. What’s not to like? That was the situation Paloma Elsesser found herself in when she sunned herself in Port Antonio, Jamaica, recently. We’re particularly into her swimwear choices on this trip. Y2K perfection.
Releasing albums and appearing on the covers of magazines can be really stressful (or so we’ve heard). We reckon that’s why Rosalía went to one of the most stunning places on Earth for some precious R&R last month, where she napped on boats with her beau.
Where: Joshua Tree, California
Ah, Joshua Tree, California, a tranquil escape in the desert where the calming vibes are top notch. No wonder Adut Akech went there to unwind before heading to France to walk in the Jacquemus AW22 show. Livin’ cool indeed.
Where: Athens, Greece
Having starred in the campaign for Jacquemus’ Nike collab, Jorja was naturally another attendee at the AW22 show in France. But not before she went to Athens, where she says she left a little bit of her heart. Might want to contact the airport’s lost and found department about that…
Sabrina Fuentes of Pretty Sick
Another temporary Parisian babe, Pretty Sick’s frontwoman Sabrina has been kicking it by the Seine, lunching at Café de Flore and partying at the city’s coolest clubs. I mean, what else are you supposed to do when in the City of Lights? The only thing that’s missing is a big fat pain au chocolat.
