Reese Witherspoon, Kendall Jenner, and More Set the Standard for Perfectly Curated, Instagrammable Fourth of July Holidays

Taylor Swift’s bouncy slide is inflated. Martha Stewart’s pool is lined with tiny American flags. For those celebrities who aren’t at Paris Couture this weekend, the Fourth of July offers a welcome respite from work (though you’ll likely still catch models hitting the Dogpound before indulging in pie) and a chance to show everyone else how much fun they’re having on Instagram. This year, the American holiday isn’t without a bittersweet edge—as demonstrations against Donald Trump are scheduled at New York’s Trump Tower this afternoon—and many stars have expressed the malaise that comes with the requisite fireworks and apple pie. See the best Instagrams from the likes of Liya Kebede, Kendall Jenner, Reese Witherspoon, and more, here.
