There’s something about a tank top that brings out the heat in a woman. Especially a hot and famous one. Sure, it’s great seeing ladies in expensive dresses and swimsuits, but a tank top is something else. Many women enjoy the comfort and ease of wearing a tank top, but the fact that they can also be extremely flattering is of just as much importance to them as it is their onlookers. By throwing on a tank top, they can show off their arms, chest, abs, and even maybe some mid-riff as well. For celebrities, wearing these kinds of shirts can help them avoid costly dresses, but it also helps them get noticed in those “stars are just like us” features on websites and magazines, making them seem more relatable.
It also helps when it’s an incredibly hot star wearing the tank top. All women are beautiful, but some stars are just drop dead sexy just walking down the street in something as simple as a tank top. If anything, the tank top helps draw one’s attention to their natural appeal. It’s not just the usual paparazzi favorites either who wear these tops, but real movie stars, accomplished actresses and singers, and even a few whose star is fading, but still have it where it counts. Some can throw on a windbreaker or jacket as cover, but many prefer just the top itself to look better. A tank top looks astounding on a hot woman and several ladies specialize in being seen in them a lot. Here are fifteen of the hottest famous ladies that love wearing tank tops and show just how effective it is on the right body.
15. Taylor Swift
It’s been a decade since Swift came to prominence as the teenage country star singing heartfelt songs. Since then, she’s become one of the single biggest stars on the face of the planet. Moving from country to pure pop, Swift’s albums have blown away records and her concert tours have been epic sellouts. While her fan base is mostly teenage girls who look up to her as a role model, Swift has more than her share of male fans too who admire her great beauty. In public, Swift tends to stick to tank tops and looks truly fantastic with her blond hair and pretty face still seeming very appealing no matter what angle she is photographed at. Swift has a wonderful mix of humor and silliness that comes out in her performances to go hand in hand with her natural assets. Swift is far more a sexy presence than she is given credit for and her shots in a tank top prove that.
Since her breakout with hits like Umbrella, Rihanna has been hailed for her fantastic singing voice that’s led her to work with the biggest names in the business. Her tours are sellouts, her videos hit the mark, and her magazine shoots feature a stunningly gorgeous body. She’s even moved into acting by starring in movies like Battleship and the upcoming Ocean’s Eight, proving herself quite the talent there as well. True, Rihanna has had rough times (her infamous relationship with Chris Brown), but has come out stronger without losing even an ounce of her sex appeal. Of course, that includes wearing a tank top quite a lot when going out and about, dressing down instead of slipping into her more unusual outfits. Her dark skin adds a nice exotic flare to her outfits so even when she is dressed down for the gym, Rihanna looks amazing. It helps that she’s in astounding shape, with both a toned rear and legs which gives all of her fans a thrill. A songstress with a wicked side, Rihanna makes a tank top a great fashion statement.
13. Megan Fox
She’s always been far more famous for her looks than actual acting talent, but I think most of her fans will be totally okay with that. She introduced herself to the world when she wore a tank top with jean shorts in her breakout role in the first Transformers movie, making her a total super star. With her dark hair, gorgeous looks, and pursed lips, she’s been compared to a young Angelina Jolie, but hotter in street clothes. She has managed to use her looks and turn it into several acting roles in movies like Jennifer’s Body and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remakes. What’s most interesting is that she has a strong mind too. Even though she has been typecast as just being the “hottie,” she has no problem slamming directors who have been sexist, including giving the verbal (and probably physical) middle finger to directors like Michael Bay. Now that she’s a little older, she’s a bit more settled into motherhood and not as much into “sexpot” roles as in the past. Still, the sight of her walking in a tank top is always good for the paparazzi and Fox looks amazing in them. If ever a woman embodies her last name to the fullest, it’s Fox, and a tank top is sure proof of that.
12. Kaley Cuoco
From the start of her career, Cuoco has been notable for her gorgeous looks and lush blonde hair. She got her start as the ditzy, social-obsessed teenager on the sitcom 8 Simple Rules, showing her flair for comedy. She had a stint as a rising witch on Charmed that allowed her to show off in hot outfits too. Since 2005, she’s been a regular face on TV as Penny on the smash hit The Big Bang Theory, giving her fans something to hope for at least once a week. At first, as the sole girl with top billing on the show, she had a chance to wear a lot of the sexy stuff and a tank top has often been her costume on the show, not quite grasping the effect it has on the nerd neighbors. Cuoco carries that over in real life, staying in excellent shape and looking amazing in paparazzi photos. She enjoys dressing up, but looks great in just a jogging outfit. With her nice bust held back and sans makeup, she is still quite the hot number. Whether for her show or just walking around, Cuoco shows that her in a tank top can be a big deal anytime.
11. Vanessa Hudgens
Hudgens got her big break in High School Musical, the Disney Channel movie that turned into a full-fledged phenomenon. Despite how she played the “good girl” on it, she already had a nice hot side with her good build and dark hair. In the last several years, Hudgens has amped up her image with movies like Sucker Punch and Spring Breakers to show off a much sexier side. She’s also enjoyed success on Broadway in shows like Gigi and playing Rizzo on Grease Live among other credits. On her own, Hudgens goes to a tank top as her usual outfit quite a lot and even dressed down looks incredibly steamy. Throw on dark glasses and it looks even hotter with her black hair adding to some fun looks. Hudgens may enjoy showing off her amazing singing voice, but the rest of her body is just as hot to back her looks up.
10. Selena Gomez
There’s a tendency of Disney Channel starlets to grow into incredible hotties. Gomez is surely proving that. She broke out as the mischievous witch Alex on Wizards of Waverly Place as well as in various small movies. Since that show ended, Gomez has been branching out to more adult fare like Spring Breakers and signing onto various singing tours. She shown herself quite the hot presence with her sultry style and astounding ability on stage all while showing up in skin-tight outfits. Gomez has had some personal issues (seeking treatment for depression), but she looks quite healthy when she goes out. Tank tops are a constant for her outfits and Gomez also enjoys sunglasses as she shops and hits the gym, resulting in people around her just wagging their tongues. With her star rising more (including rumors of romances with Justin Bieber among others), Gomez can hold a camera’s gaze especially when she has a tank top on. She can be hot in most anything, but Gomez sure works magic in a tank top that few can match.
9. Britney Spears
She’s had her ups and downs over the years to be sure, but just try to remember when Spears broke out as the hottest pop star on the planet in 1999. She followed up that breakout year with hot and sexy magazine spreads as the years went on to enhance her new, grown-up profile Sadly, all of that was followed by a hard fall with the crazy stuff like shaving her head bald and smashing up a car with an umbrella. Thankfully, Britney is back in shape, touring regularly, having record an acclaimed new album, and is rocking from Las Vegas on the regular basis. Despite her ups and downs, what has remained through it all is her smoldering sexuality that comes forth from her outfits. Often spotted on jogs and just shopping, Spears keeps to herself, usually dressed down in public with tank tops that look great on her. Some have trashed it as more “trailer park style,” but when Spears wears it, it looks hot as hell. She has shifted her image a bit since becoming a mom, but in many ways, Britney remains the sexpot who rocked millions of fans and won millions of hearts.
8. Jennifer Lawrence
Lawrence is a fascinating figure. She says she hates to play the Hollywood game by trying to avoid the usual studio stuff or the politics. However, she’s also one of the biggest stars with two blockbuster franchises and an Oscar at only 26. She is a gorgeous blonde but remains a bit more down to Earth, always frank in interviews and looking great in various outfits. Lawrence got major press as the centerpiece of the infamous 2014 hack that spread nude photos of her across the Internet. But despite being so exposed, Lawrence remains strong in her roles and handles things well with great humor. Her “dressed down” approach helps her appear as the same woman who can be a knockout on the red carpet and also look great in just sweats. Tank tops are a common sight on Lawrence as her roles mean she has to keep in great shape and she does it with a nice style. Usually, she is uncaring what others thinks of her and that just adds to her sex appeal. Lawrence is a fantastic star and actress and hotter in just nice sweats than any fancy dress.
7. Kendall Jenner
The youngest of the Kardashian clan is surely rising up the ranks in sexiness. Sure, Kim gets the major fame and Khloe and Kourtney are hot in their own ways, but Kendall brings something new to the table. Her curves may not bend the same way as her siblings’, but she has her own unique appeal that drives many of her fans wild. She’s brilliantly used social media to her advantage, bringing in a younger, more ravenous crowd of people who just want to see and comment on her pictures. For Jenner, the fact that she has yet to start a family also keeps her free to keep her physique nice and toned for her adoring audience, while simultaneously improving her future modeling prospects. Plus, even though she may not have a giant backside like Kim, she does what every smart woman does and uses fashion to her advantage. In this case, it’s an awesome tank top to keep the world in good spirits.
6. Jessica Alba
Alba first gained fame with the shots of herself in a tight leather costume for the TV series Dark Angel back in 2000. Since then, she’s shown off plenty with sexy roles in Sin City, Fantastic Four, and more. But Alba has proven herself a lot smarter than most had given her credit for. Her Honest Company is a massive success that’s made her a certified multi-millionaire, giving her more money than she’s ever seen in acting. Alba is also tops as a wife and mother and is even inclined to do more charity work than play racy roles. However, when she goes out, she proves she still has a stunning body, giving the world a quick reminder of how amazing Alba was in her younger years. Those pouty lips and smooth hair add something special as Alba looks great in any outfit and makes those tops she wears a thing of beauty. She may be a businesswoman now, but Alba is terrific in these tank tops and proves she is nothing short of a sexy angel.
5. Miley Cyrus
Few stars have changed in such a short a time as Cyrus has. She rose up as Hannah Montana, the nice girl who pretended to be a rock star. She was clean-cut, funny, talented; basically, the perfect Disney Channel starlet. She even was a smash as a touring artist, earning millions every year. Controversy erupted when, at 15, she did a Vanity Fair spread showing off her bare shoulders. That’s laughable, considering since the show ended, Cyrus has shown a hell of a lot more than that. Notable for her wild outfits and behavior, Cyrus has done several nude shoots for magazines and showed off a lot more online to boot. In public, she sticks to tank tops a lot and looks fantastic in them. Cyrus definitely isn’t a shy celebrity. Her inner performer comes out in full blast whenever she walks out of her front door. Whether it’s just on a jog or getting herself into another wild fracas involving the press, Cyrus proves that she is a show-stopper in so many ways.
4. Hillary Duff
Lizzie McGuire has definitely grown up. Duff rose to fame as a Disney Channel star, becoming a standout with her blond hair and girl next door looks. It served her well in movies before settling down with motherhood. Today, Duff is back in the spotlight thanks to the hit TV show Younger and bounces between Los Angeles and New York. In either city, she can be seen often in a tank top and it looks amazing on her. Her body has grown quite well, framed by her blonde locks and that thousand watt smile that can light up any room. She doesn’t show off skin a lot, but Duff can rock a tight top and jeans better than most can dream. From her rise as kid star to an accomplished TV actress in her own right, Duff looks terrific on the streets and shows how well she’s grown in so many ways.
3. Ariel Winter
Winter’s growth has been truly amazing to watch. In the early seasons of Modern Family, her character Alex was a true nerd with glasses, wearing sweaters all the time and in the shadow of her more attractive sister (Sarah Hyland). However, Winter has nicely developed…in more ways than one. She famously had to have breast reduction surgery as a teenager, but what really showed the world that she was grown up was that she got into a tussle with her mother, accusing her mom of abuse and eventually got herself emancipated. While the show continues to try to push Alex as a “nerd,” it’s impossible to deny Winter’s heat in person. What’s more is that she is not shy about posting racy selfies, changing her hair color and going around in tight shirts and pants that just amaze. Seeing how her tank tops cling to that ample chest as she walks about is enough to drive any person completely insane. Try not to stare too hard.
2. Jennifer Aniston
She’s 47, but Aniston barely seems to have aged since Friends and that’s a great thing. If anything, she looks even hotter, with her long hair framing that face, her pert nose, and a body that’s still in phenomenal shape. Since the 1990s, Aniston has made wearing a tank top a fashion choice and always looks great in it. Sure, she’s done bikinis, designer dresses, and more, but Aniston in a tank top remains a terrific sight. Her wardrobe adds to her already high sense of relatability and helps her stay so popular even nearly 20 years after getting her first big break. Great as it is to see Aniston in movies or on the red carpet, the best shots are of her just walking down the street in a tank top, reminding us all why she remains one of our favorite “friends” to stare at after all these years.
1. Bella Thorne
The Disney Channel starlet is rising high, developing her stardom in her own right. With her fiery red hair (which she likes to change occasionally) and a great body, Thorne has become a favorite for Instagram users. She loves to take selfies at the gym to show her body off in tight yoga pants and has a seemingly endless collection of tank tops she wears outdoors. On jogs, from the gym, or just out, Thorne is able to make any top amazingly hot just by wearing it. To top it off, her physique is framed by her lush red locks and it just makes everything so much better. With her star rising with the upcoming Freeform series Famous in Love, Thorne has become an online icon with her often racy pics and is probably ready for the next step. A redhead is automatically hotter than most ladies, but Thorne stands out even more as her tank top use has become a style all its own.
