    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!

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!
