Celebrity Independence Day: Stars Show 4th of July Spirit (PHOTOS)

Happy birthday, America!

The July 4th holiday is often filled with barbecues, beach days, fireworks and lots and lots of red, white and blue. Celebrities, of couse, are no exception, especially when it comes to showing off their star-spangled style.

From glittery onstage outfits (we're looking at you, Katy Perry) to bikini'd magazine covers (hey there, Jessica Simpson), many stars just love sporting some seriously patriotic gear -- even if they aren't American!

So before you head out the door to celebrate Independence Day, take a cue from some stars' American-flag style throughout the years.

Check out photos of stars sporting the stars and stripes below:
