Since we're in store for oven-like temps this week (90 degrees? Don't even tell us you haven't been tempted to call in sick!), we thought we'd cool you off with some synchronized-swimming-style starlets! If you've been privileged to attend one of the glam events the acrobatic Aqualillies put on, then you know just how much finesse and mad skills these ladies possess. Treading is hard enough, man, let alone looking flawless doing it! If you haven't caught the underwater act, the gals host classes at the Annenberg Beach House that will throw your abs into the deep end (think muscle-lengthening and toning exercises like sculling, layouts, ballet legs, torpedoes, tucks, and marching)!
And, it turns out their graceful, gutsy moves translate well on camera, too, because we have smoking-hot snaps of them outside of the pool providing just as much entertainment. Don't worry, we scooped their beauty tricks (legit waterproof mascara anyone?), too. Click through our chlorinated adventure with the troupe, and we guarantee you'll either be trying to book them for a backyard party, or enrolled in classes, stat!
