Fashion is something well dictated by celebrities, socialites, and high-end magazines. What celebrities have taught us in the last year or so is that yoga pants can be more than just workout gear. These stars have dressed up their workout clothes and dressed down their normal clothes in these well put together outfits that all surround one concept: yoga pants. Companies like Onzie, K.Deer and Alo Yoga have put out some high end, American made yoga leggings that not only last long but look fabulous. All of these companies would love nothing more than to wake up and see their leggings on a celebrity captured by the paparazzi. This is free advertising that any small business can only dream about.
Though many prefer yoga pants for their ‘tight around the booty’ nature, they’re also super duper comfortable; making them the perfect choice for a lazy day around the house or a trip to the grocery store. Oh, and they’re also great for yoga. One of the stars in this list is actually doing yoga in the photo, the others are either coming from or going to a workout. While others even dressed up their yoga pants with a pair of heels for a day out shopping.
25 Eliza Dushku
All of that vampire butt-kicking on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel must keep actress Eliza Dushku in tip-top shape. Just check out this photo of her backside in these adorable yoga pants. If you ask us, Eliza should make this attire her everyday uniform, because it makes her body look on point! While at the airport, Eliza was photographed by the paparazzi while getting her luggage and carry-ons checked out. We wonder if she realized that the one who was being most checked out was herself? Everyone had their eyes on Eliza, who was smoldering in sleek black yoga pants and a cute light pink T-shirt. Her booty was petite yet perky and with a gorgeous feminine roundness, and those yoga pants did it a whole lot of justice. She even has that all elusive thigh gap that all the girls want. Thank you, Eliza, for infusing an airport with so much sexiness.
24 Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
As a Victoria’s Secret Angel, you can bet that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has the body of perfection. At 5-feet, 9-inches, Rosie is tall, lean, and oh so sexy. She has to be, it’s her job! Although we’re pretty sure that Victoria’s Secret approached her because she was already smoking hot to begin with. Some people just get all the luck in the genetics department. That isn’t to say that Rosie doesn’t work out like mad. She actually has a pretty intense training routine, just like most Victoria’s Secret models. Just see for yourself in this photo of Rosie in VS’s sport collection, which features yoga pants, leggings, sports bras, and more for women who want to train (or pretend to train) like an Angel. And if you want to see more gorgeousness, then check out Rosie in a recent photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar. It’s amazing how someone with such one-of-a-kind beauty can be so versatile.
23 Jessica Biel
There are so many reasons to be jealous of Jessica Biel. First of all, she is married to Justin Timberlake and had his baby (who is gorgeous, by the way). Secondly, Jessica has one of those figures that makes you swoon with envy. Known for being equal parts strong and sexy, Jessica is right at home on the set of a blockbuster film as well as in the gym, pumping iron. The actress even practiced martial arts for her role in Total Recall. She also loves doing cardio and strength training to keep her figure looking tight and toned (even post-baby), and her favorite activities are volleyball, yoga, and plyometrics. This girl can seriously kick butt! We love this photo of Jessica getting her burn on in a downtown gym while giving her quad muscles the ultimate workout with a resistance band routine. See? We told you she was hardcore!
22 Zoe Saldana
While we mourn the fact that Zoe Saldana will not be in the Avatar 2 movie, we can take heart in knowing that she is still looking as hot as ever. Zoe looks good whether she is all in blue, pregnant with babies, or just waltzing around town. It may be hard to believe, but this actress is a mommy of two, and she still has the body of a young twenty-something! She was spotted in the city while wearing a sleek workout get-up: grey yoga pants and a long-sleeved top to match. Zoe is 5 feet, 7 inches of pure beauty, and she is one of those people who just naturally has very little body fat and the most supple skin in Hollywood. Her physique is totally svelte, and we give her some mad props for those defined and muscular quads of hers. And don’t even get us started on her butt; there are so many girls out there who would kill for that booty!
21 Kate Hudson
Not only is Kate Hudson an adorable actress, but did you know that she has her own line of exercise clothing? True story! And Kate is a fantastic model to show off the clothing. Check out her Fabletics items and you will fall in love with the patterns and styles that Kate has to offer. Of course, you might be bummed out that you don’t look as delicious in these pieces as Kate does, but hey, she is Kate Hudson after all. She can model any of the pieces, which give us a glimpse of her perfectly defined abs, her toned obliques, and the round shape of her booty. Our personal favorite is this pair of black and white yoga pants, which feature intricate detailing and designs that encourage the eye to move all around Kate’s legs and butt. Not that we aren’t doing that already! Yeah, we said it!
20 Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell has a lot to be happy about. Not only does she look smashing these days, but the 36-year-old is slated to work on Frozen 2, sequel to the ever-popular Disney film Frozen. Sure, there are rumors that Kristen is having a beef with Idina Menzel on the set, but you know how those Hollywood tabloids spin things. The truth is that Idina is busy with wedding plans, which is causing some scheduling conflicts with the Frozen 2 cast. No big deal, really...maybe they should just “let it go”!? Anyway, Kristen is one celebrity who takes care of herself, both physically and mentally. She has spoken out about depression and anxiety, and she can be spotted around town getting her workout in. We loved seeing her in these snug-fitting yoga pants, which showed off a perky and toned booty, as well as some seriously good-looking quads. Work it, girl!
18 Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis has been looking hot and sexy for years, and we’ve been wondering just how she manages to do it! From That '70s Show to Black Swan, Mila has been a hottie with a body, and she looks delectable all year round. We love that she makes it a regular habit to pow around in yoga pants. The paparazzi have spotted her heading to the gym, grabbing a coffee, and just lounging around town in these yoga pants, and we adore them. Mila has always been a thin girl, but her curves are on full display in these pants, and we love that the fabric tugs perfectly at her hips and booty. We can’t imagine the number of squats and lunges she does each week, but the hard work is definitely paying off. We love these black yoga pants that Mila sported one hot afternoon; they were capris and showed off her toned calf muscles and tanned skin.
17 Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed, and to be honest, we don’t really want her to be tamed. The singer is constantly leaving us speechless, whether she is appearing on a talk show in pasties, flying around nude on a wrecking ball, or dancing provocatively in a teddy bear costume. Yet what really gets us feeling hot under the collar is Miley in her yoga pants. Even though this kind of clothing is usually referred to lazy Sundays and girls’ nights in, when Miley wears yoga pants, she looks like a red hot diva. These pants are perfect for Miley’s signature twerking, and her defined abs and toned tush look absolutely fabulous in them! Lately, Miley has been galavanting around town with her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth. We bet that he is just as happy whether Miley is in a party gown or yoga pants! She certainly puts an X-rated spin on things!
16 Kylie Jenner
It’s usually Kim Kardashian that people think of when imagining celebrities with awesome butts, and yet Kim’s little sis, Kylie Jenner is looking mighty fine. The 19-year-old has transformed into a hot young woman, and she is definitely not afraid to show the world her feminine assets. Her social media profiles are filled with selfies showcasing her luscious lips, as well as her banging badonkadonk. Whether she is wearing a swimsuit, her workout gear, or an expensive cocktail dress, Kylie’s rear end is often at the forefront, and the paparazzi is always scrambling to snap the perfect photo. Lately, Kylie has been celebrating her sister Kendall’s and her mom’s birthdays, but people haven’t been ignoring Kylie. In fact, she is rumored to be the leading singer in a new band: Terror Jr. No matter her on-stage look, our personal favorite is her post-workout attire - tight black yoga pants that hug every single curve.
15 Megan Fox
Even though she’s had two kids, Megan Fox still rocks those yoga pants with the best of them. The bombshell actress paired her black yoga pants with a black workout jacket and pink top for a film. Fox hates going to the gym but has used a celebrity trainer to help her get fit for major roles and awards shows. She got her start in television in 2001 after she landed a regular role and hit series Hope & Faith. Her first role in films was in the Lindsay Lohan tween movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen and then her biggest role came in the Michael Bay action blockbuster Transformers with Shia LaBeouf.
Megan Fox is one of the most notable actresses in Hollywood for her beauty in the early 2000s and has appeared in some very provocative magazines. She has been featured and even on the cover of mags like Maxim, FHM and Rolling Stone.
14 Nina Agdal
Nina Agdal got her first work for companies like Billabong and Victoria’s Secret. She has also been featured in Bebe stores along with some international work. As far as editorial work, Agdal has been on the cover and within multiple fantastic magazines. Among these magazines are Vogue Mexico, Elle, and Cosmopolitan as well as her spots in Sports Illustrated Magazine. She was named “rookie of the year” by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s coveted annual list in 2012. Two years later, 2014, she was featured on the cover alongside Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. In 2013, Agdal appeared in one of those messy Carl’s Jr. commercials during the Super Bowl halftime show. This Summer she has been on Leonardo DiCaprio’s arm, the notorious lover of models. What changed with this model is that Leo officially made Agdal his girlfriend in a recent story that first developed on Instagram.
13 Kim Kardashian
It could be said that everyone knows who Kim Kardashian is at this point. Between her reality show fame and her rapper husband Kanye West, Kardashian has maintained her place in the spotlight. Her extreme hourglass figure makes us so curious what yoga pants are reliable enough to hold all of the junk she carries in her trunk. The young woman is mostly known for her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and related spinoff series. Her social media and online presence is something that online marketers can only dream about and her mother’s ability to hand her public relations makes Kardashian a name that is hard to shed from our minds. In 2015 Kim Kardashian was featured in Time magazine’s list of “100 Most Influential People” and she was described in Vogue as a pop phenomena. Kim Kardashian lives with her husband and baby North in Los Angeles, California. Perhaps not shockingly, Kardashian also models from time to time.
12 Vanessa Hudgens
This actress and singer got her fame originally from Disney shows but has since separated herself far from the Disney name. After her role in the High School Musical franchise and highly publicized relationship with teen heartthrob Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens rose to fame. She released a record after the films and it quickly rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Hudgens was born in central California and moved up and down the coast to the Pacific Northwest with her parents growing up. She started performing in musical theater when she was just eight years old and got many plays under her belt before even turning 18. She started doing more intense acting at 15 and briefly attended Orange County Highschool of the Arts before getting privately tutored. Her first major film was a supporting role controversial teen drama Thirteen which garnered mild success. She has done Broadway, voice over work and movies in her time between now and Thirteen and looks dang good in yoga pants.
11 Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco is loved for her sometimes airheaded, but always wonderful portrayal of Penny on hit television series The Big Bang Theory. Before the tragic death of John Ritter she also played Bridget on the hilarious sitcom 8 Simple Rules. Though her character Penny’s personality from Big Bang isn’t entirely her own she definitely has that same lively spark; clearly viewed in this photo here. Before becoming an actress the young woman was born in Camarillo, California and got her start as a tennis player. She played tennis from the age of three until she was 16 and was at one time regionally ranked.
It was 1995 when Cuoco made her first appearance in the movies but her role on 8 Simple Rules was the most breakthrough role the star could ask for. Since then television has been her realm and she’s had multiple starring roles in hit TV series. She has had some very public relationships that haven’t worked out but the actress is currently single.
10 Kendall Jenner
Though Kendall Jenner got her start as a little nugget on Keeping Up With The Kardashians she’s now better known for the role that she plays in the fashion industry. There is a new world in high fashion that Vogue has dubbed “the Instagirl era” and Harper’s Bazaar calls “Social Media Modelling” and it seems that Jenner rules it. In this world, models are chosen based on their social media presence instead of the usual meet and greet between model and designer. She worked in mostly print and photoshoots until her breakout season in 2014-2015 where she walked in fashion weeks in Milan, Paris and New York. The aspiring model has done layouts for tons of international Vogue offsets and is a brand ambassador for Estee Lauder. She is one of the top 10 most followed celebrities on Instagram and makes an annual income estimated around $4 million. The model lives in a house she purchased in Los Angeles and prefers to keep her love life out of the media.
9 Gigi Hadid
Two years ago the young American model was named one of the 12 rookies in the coveted annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Here she’s pictured just getting some gas at the local pump in yoga pants paired with all Nike top and cross trainers. Hadid was raised in Los Angeles with a real estate mogul father and former model for a mother. Her mother and father have two other children together and then the family has two half-siblings on their father’s side. After her parents were divorced her mother remarried and added five more half sisters to the family. The young model graduated from Malibu High School where she was competitive in dressage and volleyball. Hadid moved to New York City directly after high school in an attempt to jumpstart her modelling career. In Fall 2013 she began studying at The New School in Greenwich, New York. She has shot three separate campaigns with Guess.
Head to toe in matching leggings and spandex top Rihanna pairs her workout clothes, the singer can bring fashion to any occasion. In 2003 she entered the music scene by recording demos with her manager in Barbados. She eventually signed with Def Jam Records and was taken under the wing of none other than Jay-Z. While she was being raised in Barbados Rihanna had tons of issues related to her father’s alcoholism and crack cocaine addiction. After her parents were divorced things got better for the young woman and she planned to finish high school until her music career blew up. Pre-music she was in a sub-military program provided by her school. She began in a three girl group but when they were discovered Rihanna was the only one that had that star shine. The young woman grew up listening to reggae which inspired her initial reggaeton beats on her first couple of albums.
7 Minka Kelly
Her road to being a famous actress was a long and windy one. Kelly is the only daughter of Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay. Her and her mother moved around a lot until settling in Chicago and then New Mexico as Kelly graduated from high school. After high school Kelly moved to Los Angeles to pursue modelling and met a former Playboy Playmate who hooked her up with a plastic surgeon that would give her work hours and pay her in a breast augmentation. She decided against the breast enhancement but fell in love with medicine and studied for a year to be a surgeon’s assistant but she continued to audition for film and television roles. In 2006 Kelly got her big break in the television series Friday Night Lights and acted in three seasons of the hit show. The New York Times commended Kelly on her performance and her future was bright after her character left for college and she ultimately left the show.
6 Gigi Hadid
Yoga pants aren’t just for yoga and working out, they can be dressed up too and that is proven by young model Gigi Hadid. She paired her all black spandex yoga pants with a gorgeous black ankle boot and matching crop top. Before her modelling career took off Hadid was mostly known for dating notoriously popular singers like Joe Jonas and Zayn Malik. Her mother was also featured on multiple seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills where Hadid was also briefly featured. The young woman has starred in seven music videos including Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” and has hosted some awards shows from here to Canada. She started modelling when she was only two years old, Paul Marciano of Guess saw her and had to have her model for Baby Guess.

After her record company went under the singer moved to Los Angeles she signed with Capitol Records in 2007 after being dropped from The Island Def Jam Music Group. Just one year after signing with Capitol Perry dropped the smash hit single “I Kissed a Girl” which raised quite the stir with homosexual connotations in the song’s themes. Two years later she released her third and uber popular album Teenage Dream and dropped the chart-topping singles “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework”, “Last Friday Night”, and “E.T.”. She was of the very first singers to have two separate videos on Vevo with over one billion views. Both “Roar” with it’s amazingly empowering message and “Dark Horse” with it’s fabulously dance worthy beat reached one billion views on the video sharing site.
3 Sara Jean Underwood
Just 9 years ago in 2007 Sara Underwood was Playboy Playmate of the Year and has since hosted American television and worked as a model. The gorgeous young woman was born in Portland, Oregon and studied at both Oregon State University and Portland State University. It was October 2005 that Underwood got her big break in the annual “Girls of the PAC 10” article featured in Playboy.

Just one year later the magazine honored the young woman again by voting her #25 on the “25 Hottest Playboy Celebrities”. She has also had roles in some feature films like the spoof Epic Movie and Deadly Weekend.
2 Jenny McCarthy
Of all of the photos here we’d like to mention that this is the only one that features a celebrity actually doing yoga in their yoga pants. The star and television personality is featured in a balance heavy strengthening posture and displays knowledge of the ins and outs of yoga. She is an actress, television hots, author and screenwriter. McCarthy did a brief stint as a host on ABC’s show The View which is why we forget that her first big break was in Playboy magazine. Although the young woman was a cheerleader throughout high school she often refers to getting bullied and saying that she was an outcast in her teen years. She was selected out of 10,000 applicants for her first feature in Playboy magazine and continued to break into Hollywood after that. Two years after her first photoshoot McCarthy was cast as the host of MTV dating show Singled Out and a few years later released her autobiography. She’s since starred in some funny spoof comedies and spoke for the anti-vaccine movement.
1 Shia LaBeouf
The only man on our list, the brave and beautiful Shia LaBeouf has strapped into yoga pants on multiple occasions. As opposed to most of the ladies on this list he chose pink and purple leggings instead of black. LaBeouf has spent his entire career being a character in both his actual acting jobs and his daily life. In the past couple of years he has turned his life into a living piece of art, wearing odd things and filming odd videos.
His breakout role as Louis Stevens in the hit Disney show Even Stevens and received a Young Artist Nomination from the Daytime Emmys. After his Disney fame, the star moved to films and starred in the everyTransformers film that Michael Bay has made. He has won tons of MTV Movie and Teen Choice Awards in his years acting. He has described himself as Jewish stated a movie made him Christian before saying that religion doesn’t really make sense to him at all. The actor just eloped to Vegas with his girlfriend Mia Goth.
