As if Kendall Jenner needed an excuse to show off her stunning bikini body, the 17-year-old reality star spent her 4th of July at the beach in a tiny, stars and stripes two-piece.

Jenner, who's well on her way to becoming a bona fide model, showed off her incredibly toned physique while in Malibu with friends, alternating between tanning on the sand and surfing in the water.

Her younger sister, Kylie, opted for a less patriotic swimsuit and wore a black and pink number instead. The girls' newest family member, Kim and Kanye's baby North West, was nowhere in sight.
