It’s no secret that a number of celebrities like to show off their beautiful bodies from time to time. Most famous people, especially women, are constantly scrutinized about the way they look, especially if they are actresses, models or singers. Some celebrities have expressed their dissatisfaction that women are judged so harshly in Hollywood. However, there are some famous women who have decided to use the demand for physical beauty to their advantage. As a matter of fact, there are some singers and actresses who are just as well known for their appealing physiques as they are for their creative work. And these days, there are also some celebrities who have built most of their fan base simply by being fashionable and beautiful.
It’s hard to determine “how far is too far” when it comes to female celebrities showing off their curves. After all, a woman’s body is beautiful and should be appreciated. However, it’s not really fair for women to be judged solely on their looks either. Still, we can’t deny that the fashion and beauty industry has benefited significantly by the endorsements they’ve received from women on the Hollywood A-list. Here are 12 sexy celebs who love showing off their curves.
Singer, dancer and aspiring model Ciara is almost as famous for her well-toned body as she is for her music and dance moves. She’s definitely not shy about showing off her curves, but it seems that she’s toned it down a bit since she started dating football player Russell Wilson. The two are getting pretty serious, and Ciara has even allowed her young son Future, to spend time with Wilson (Ciara was previously engaged to the rapper whose stage name is Future). These days, it seems that her rapper ex is pretty salty about her new relationship and has taken to social media to share his thoughts. Or, maybe he’s just mad that he can no longer admire her stunning silhouette.
11 Demi Lovato
The singer and former Disney star is an inspiration to many young girls and women who have struggled with body issues. Demi Lovato had bulimia as a preteen, and was self-conscious about her naturally curvy body for quite some time. After taking some time away from the spotlight to deal with her self-image issues, Lovato is back and better than ever. Her new single “Confident” describes the new way she views herself, and her recent appearances on stage and the red carpet are indications that she wants the world to know that she finally loves herself. From plunging necklines to mini skirts and short shorts, Demi is showing off some of the best parts of herself, with a winning smile to match.
10 Nicki Minaj
In addition to being a talented lyricist and speaking out against gender inequality in the world of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj is also known for her eye-catching figure. After all, she wouldn’t have gotten those butt enhancements if she didn’t want people to notice, right? After the release of her single “Anaconda” (and the artwork that went along with the single) Minaj has been the subject of both praise and criticism. However, she seems to take it all in stride and doesn’t seem to mind too much that people can’t seem to stop talking about her “assets.” She’s even given a few lap dances to fellow rappers Drake and Lil Wayne, which further emphasizes that the female rapper, who is currently dating Meek Mill, doesn’t mind showing off her shape.
9 Kate Upton
In 2012, model Kate Upton was featured in Vogue as part of the publication’s healthy model initiative. She’s always had an ample bosom, and likely made Sports Illustrated subscribers swoon when she appeared on the cover. Sure, she’s not the average “model” size, but that doesn’t seem to bother Upton. She states that she loves her body because “it’s what God gave her” and told Vogue that she has confidence in herself, and is glad that her positive self image makes others feel better about themselves. She also makes some pretty smart fashion choices on the red carpet, which makes her look even more stunning.
It’s no secret that powerhouse singer Beyonce is all about celebrating her body. In fact, she often pens anthems encouraging women to do the same. The Destiny’s Child hit from back in the day “Bootylicious”, was inspired by the pressure that Beyonce felt to be thin. She admits that she’d gained some weight, but the expectations on her to be skinny were “ridiculous.” Beyonce often wears pretty revealing outfits when she’s performing, and there was a lot of talk about the dress she wore to the recent Met Gala. However, the mother of one and wife of rapper Jay-Z, knows how to change it up, and is often seen in sophisticated gowns and boho-chic styles as well.
7 Christina Hendricks
Buxom actress and former model Christina Hendricks, has long been the spokeswoman for gorgeous full-figured women everywhere. Her voluptuous bosom and hourglass figure make her look like a vintage pin-up girl, and she’s been getting a lot of attention in Hollywood for it, but Hendricks doesn’t seem to mind. She states that when she was modeling and traveled to Italy, she drank cappuccinos every day and ended up gaining 15 pounds. Other models would have freaked out about that, but Hendricks took a different approach. She says she stood in front of the mirror naked and reveled in the fact that she looked like a woman. That’s confidence for you.
6 Hilary Duff
The former Disney kid (she was the star of the show Lizzie McGuire) and Younger cast member says that she’s sorry she wasted her younger years obsessing over food. She admits to Health magazine that she was “too skinny,” and is now embracing her curves and showing them off. These days, we can see Duff wearing form-fitting dresses, as well as shorts and skirts that show off her well-toned legs. She’s still not over the top with her fashion choices, but it’s clear to see that the mother of one is way more comfortable with her body now than she was in the past, and we don’t blame her.
5 Kelly Clarkson
Singer and first American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson has never been very skinny. That’s just not her body type, and she’s OK with that. After giving birth to her daughter, it was difficult for Clarkson to lose the baby weight, but she continued to be her bubbly, confident self, even though she got a lot of criticism. Kelly continues to make it clear that she doesn’t care what people think, and recently announced that she is expecting her second child. She’s still wearing form-fitting gowns and showing her figure off in clothes that are right for her body. Good for her.
4 Amber Rose
Model Amber Rose isn’t afraid to admit that she used to be an exotic dancer. Even though she’s not in that line of work anymore, it likely helped her to be confident with her curves. Rose is often seen on the red carpet wearing some pretty revealing outfits, which she’s been criticized for. She has turned this negativity into a campaign to help women embrace their sexuality and to be proud of their bodies. Rose has stated that women should be allowed to be alluring without fearing for their personal safety. Her former profession also had a lot to do with the reason people assumed that she cheated on ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa. However, further investigation revealed that Khalifa was the one who was unfaithful. Even though Amber Rose still likes to celebrate her physique when she’s in the public eye, it seems she’s much more focused on being a great mom to Sebastian, the son she has with her ex.
3 Kylie Jenner
Kylie Jenner has been showing off her curves for quite some time now, even though she just turned 18 a few months ago. She’s become the muse for a number of fashion designers, and recently had a segment in femail fashion finder about the curve-hugging body suit she wore from American Apparel. Aside from this recent fashion feature, Kylie has also been seen on the red carpet with form-fitting dresses and revealing outfits that some would argue are way too revealing for a teenager. Maybe that’s why her boyfriend, rapper Tyga (who is almost a decade older than her), was attracted to her. But hey, the rules are different when you’re a Kardashian.
2 Kim Kardashian
Even during both of her pregnancies, Kim Kardashian never passed up the chance to put on a form-fitting dress. Kardashian has basically made a living for herself by getting people to focus on her curvy physique. From the time Kim’s sex tape with former boyfriend Ray J was released, it seems that people can’t get enough of this hot Kardashian. Kim also does a lot to keep her appearance intact, from procedures to tedious workouts to injections to keep her backside especially plump. Kardashian has made it so obvious that she loves to show off her curves that she created an entire book of selfies for her fans to enjoy. You’re welcome.
1 Jennifer Lopez
When it comes to style that is sexy, sophisticated, daring and on-trend, we can’t help but think of Jennifer Lopez. Sure, she’s an actress, singer, dancer, producer, businesswoman and fashion designer, but when you hear her name, you likely think of her stunning physique. Lopez is known for her well-toned backside, and has made some pretty bold fashion statements over the years. There’s the dress we’ll never forget that she wore when she and Sean Combs were an item. Recently, she wore an equally revealing ensemble to the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. For a woman in her 40s with a set of twins, Lopez definitely has a lot to be proud of in the looks department. Of course, she also knows how to show off her style in a classy way, and has been known to wear elegant ball gowns that aren’t as revealing. And when it’s time to be casual, Lopez is just as stylish in sweaters, jeans and boots—and her curves are still on display. Now that’s talent.
