As America celebrates the annual Fourth of July bank holiday we take a look at these amazing star-and-striped themed Instagram pictures, as shared by Katy Perry, Heidi Klum and Gisele Bundchen.

CELEBRITY TWITTER PICTURES

First up was model-turned-TV-presenter Heidi Klum who was pictured waving her flag in a super-summery bikini as she posed in the sea; proving you don't have to be USA-born to celebrate Independence Day in style. And she wasn't the only one flexing her modelling skills in the name of the American bank holiday -  Chanel Iman also celebrated stateside by posting a pic of her wearing a super-cute bandeau top which she had fashioned out of a patriotic banner. The model was also sporting a mini American flag, tweeting "God bless America".

Alessandra Ambrosio hit the celebrations with some colourful parade characters on stilts, as she tweeted, "#happy4thofjuly", while Gisele Bundchen posted an old portrait of herself in front of the American flag – photographed by iconic photographer David LaChapelle - in a rather appropriate "#throwbackthursday".

One of the cutest celebrity Instagram additions, however, definitely has to be this snap of Katy Perry cuddling up to John Mayer after his gig in Philadelphia. Adorning full stars and stripes, we think this is the winning celebration of style-driven American pride.
