These three beauties together create one adorable American flag!
Diane Lane plus Sofia Vergara plus Kristen Bell equals a perfectly pretty red, white, and blue flag!
The only thing missing is the star pattern!
But these three pretty ladies certainly pack enough star power to make up for it!

Harry Styles looks as if Party in the USA Miley Cyrus and We Can't Stop Miley Cyrus somehow crossed the time-space continuum and morphed into the same body!
Harry was seen mixing his styles, as he was spotted on Instagram not only sporting his own grill, but an American flag bandana.
Patriotism hasn't been so strongly mixed with dental jewelry since George Washington crossed the Delaware in his wooden grill of his own. We cannot tell a lie, George was dope like that.
The photo of Harry was taken by a producer who has worked with One Direction, Calvin Aurand, who also provided this caption:

It's moments like this that make us want to stand up and say God bless 'Merica!!!
Patrick Schwarzenegger and his girlfriend Taylor Burns were spotted heading to Paris Hilton's beach party in Malibu to celebrate the 4th of July with some friends!
The couple showed off their patriotic sides as the Governator's son rocked an American flag tank top while Taylor wore a blue bikini with white shorts!
We have to admit, we wouldn't mind seeing a bit more of his patriotic side, if you catch our drift, but we'll still salute to that bod any day of the week! LOLz!
USA! USA! USA!

We can't tell if that's the sound of fireworks, or the sound of zippers bursting because of all the boners! LOLz!
Mariah Carey rocks the American flag bikini like it's her job in this Throwback Thursday pic! The national holiday has treated her well, like countless others before her — and we hope this year is no different! She's gotta be in need of a good recharge during one of the most hectic schedules we've ever seen exist! Girl is EVERYWHERE!
Plus, it would probably be nice to get her mind off of the buzz about her not singing live during recent performances! Out of sight, out of mind, even just for the 4th! Here's what she said along with the pic:

WE GET IT, Maria Menounos! You can totally wear the hell out of a bikini! It's time to pack it up and head home!
LOLz, we're just kidding — we'd look at pics of Maria in a skimpy bikini all day, every day! Even if she IS wearing the Greek equivalent of an American flag swimsuit!
Seriously though, girl has been flaunting it for the past few days now, and we just can't get enough! Whatever she's doing in the gym is 100% the right thing, because daaayum!
Hope it's relaxing having the bombest bod on the beach, Maria!
