36 Waist-Enhancing Fashions

— February 21, 2009 — Celebs
Stars like Rihanna and Hayden Panettiere prove showing off your waist is a cinch with today's fashion.

Style-conscious women have been using fashion and accessories to enhance their curves for centuries, from the extreme lace-up boned corsets of the olden days to waist belts being featured by world class couturiers today. Another way to accentuate a slender waist is to counteract it by creating wider hips or pant legs.

The cluster below highlights some innovative ways to effectively emphasize waists -- including male corsets! The gallery above includes celebrities in waist-enhanced fashions, starting with Rihanna at a Las Vegas concert at Planet Hollywood followed by Hayden Panettiere posing for an FHM photoshoot, Fergie in purple pants, Ashley Olsen in a leather waist skirt, Hillary Duff in a black corset belt, Jessica Alba in a gold gown, Victoria Beckham in trousers, Paris Hilton in a cobalt blue dress, Heidi Klum in a LBD and Kate Moss in a flowing gown with black belt.
