People often put a huge emphasis on the clothing that celebrities wear, whether it's to promote a specific designer or just to showcase how much these A-listers have to throw away on clothing. Yet, some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and the music industry have proven that it's not the designer or the threads that make the look; it's the beauty of the individual and their stellar physique that really showcase how an ensemble looks on a celeb. Not everyone needs a big over-the-top couture gown in order to really look her best.
A simple white t-shirt or a button-up men's styled shirt isn't exactly something that's hard to come by, and it's not very expensive. Yet, a simple white shirt can make a huge difference in an overall look. It's something about the simplicity of the design and the mix between masculinity and femininity that truly create a special look. It's great to see some of these celebs looking a bit more casual than their typical red carpet ensembles, and sometimes, a white top is just the trick to showcase their beauty. While the world has become fascinated with bold patterns and geometric designs in clothing, there are some celebs who still opt for something a bit more simple. From red carpet events to running errands while out and about in their personal lives, check out our list of the 15 hottest Hollywood celebs sporting their super sexy white shirts with all the confidence in the world.
15 Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez has come under attack on a number of occasions because people think of her as a manufactured music artist. She definitely doesn't have a voice like Mariah Carey, but that doesn't mean that there isn't room for her in the music industry. People have started to accept her for what she does best, which is sing pop songs with catchy tunes and appear in videos that showcase her dressing-up ability. She's often had videos that featured her in a variety of different looks, but sometimes, the simple white shirt is just enough to really get her point across. There have been a few music videos where she's completely shown off her sex appeal in a white shirt, and it's become obvious that she knows how to drive in her own lane.
14 Megan Fox
There was a time when Megan Fox was compared to Angelina Jolie when it came to her stellar good looks. With her starting out already being compared to one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood, hopes were high for this dark-haired beauty. While people know her best for her role in the Transformers films and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, even her small roles were celebrated. This Is 40 showcased how she could use her appearance to really help with a role, and fans loved seeing her in all those amazing pool scenes. Yet, a snafu where she made some comments that sounded a bit anti-Semitic caused her star to fall. Nowadays, she's scrambling to try and get back into the good graces of filmmakers in Hollywood. Yet, she's definitely managed to keep her looks on track. There's no telling if she'll be able to really become a star like Angelina Jolie, but she definitely has solidified herself as a bombshell with shots like this one with her white shirt and lingerie.
13 Kaley Cuoco
When Kaley Cuoco landed the role as Penny in The Big Bang Theory, she couldn’t have known how popular the show would become. The role skyrocketed her into the category of one of television’s most sought-after actresses, and she consistently reached the top of the list for earners on TV. Her Penny character was often traipsing around in lingerie and skimpy tank tops, which set the bar quite high for what she needed to look like in her personal life. Whenever she was photographed on the red carpet or in a magazine spread, it seemed like she had something to prove in order to promote her best self. There have been a number of different ensembles that have really showcased her stellar body, but none looked better than just a simple white shirt with a pair of matching white panties.
12 Blake Lively
When Blake Lively was first introduced to the world as a television star from Gossip Girl, it was inevitable that she would one day become known as a big screen leading lady. She had the look and charisma for the part, and after a while, the public began wanting to see more of her than just on television. She met her future husband while working on a film, and the world instantly fell in love with her new romance with Ryan Reynolds. She's officially become a true leading lady on the big screen with huge hits like The Age of Adaline and The Shallows. She's been praised for the ability to bounce back after her pregnancy, and the public can't seem to believe how great she looks as a new mother. This simple white button-up shirt is a great accent to her frilly bikini and offers just enough of a mix of coverage and sex appeal.
11 Heidi Klum
While supermodels are known for wearing couture clothing and walking the runway in over-the-top ensembles, Heidi Klum has repeatedly proven that she doesn't need all of that to exude massive sex appeal. This photo shoot showcased her infamous legs that were insured for more than $1 million and not a stitch of clothing but a simple white shirt. The oversized white button-up shirt is a classic men's top, but it looks incredibly feminine on this German beauty. With photos like these, it's obvious to see why the world remains captivated by her even after all of these years. She's still getting endorsement deals, and she's become a celebrated television personality as a judge on America's Got Talent. This photo proves that she can look amazing, even if it's just in an oversized white shirt.
10 Minka Kelly
Minka Kelly is a celebrated actress who's considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Yet, recent events have made the world pay more attention to her personal life rather than her professional successes. In early 2017, she split with her longtime boyfriend, Josh Radnor, and then the rumors began to swirl around a romance starting between her and Jesse Williams. The complicated part of this whole situation is the fact that Williams was still married when the rumors began, and he had some infamous choice words about the importance of African American issues. His wife was African American, and she was also his childhood sweetheart. Leaving her in the dust for the beautiful Minka Kelly wasn't exactly going to be seen well by the public, and that's probably why the two have yet to go public with their relationship. Yet, with pictures like these, it's not hard to see why he would have fallen for her in the first place.
9 Khloe Kardashian
When Kim Kardashian started gaining attention as the newest and sexiest reality star on television, her sisters didn't seem like they could compare to her in the looks department. Yet, Khloe has really started to garner major attention in recent years. She was once seen as the hefty Kardashian that didn't look as beautiful, but now, she's fully appreciated for her curves. There has been some major debate over whether or not she had some enhancements in the derriere department, but it's hard to deny that she looks better than she's had in years. White is a favorite color of hers when it comes to the outfits she's worn while out and about, and this ensemble proves why it's obviously a preference. She looks stunning in this ultra V-neck top, and she wears it with the utmost confidence.
Beyoncé was first introduced to the world as a member of Destiny's Child and was often seen wearing designs that were created by her mother, Tina Knowles. Everything seemed to be encrusted with crystals, and the entire group sported a slight variation of the same sparkly ensemble. Yet, as she evolved and branched out to become a solo artist, her style in clothing also changed. She still would wear her mother's designs from time to time, but the majority of her clothing were from famous designers. She soon became known for wearing couture designs and even got a bit of criticism over the lavish clothing she put on Blue Ivy. Yet, this photo shows that she doesn't have to be all dolled up in crystals and couture in order to exude sex appeal. Just a simple white t-shirt is enough to make her stand out.
Rihanna is an artist who's known just as much for her fashion sense as she is for her music. While she started out as a fresh-faced beauty from Barbados, she quickly turned into a fashion icon who was a constant winner on all of the best-dressed lists. While she's basically worn every single color under the sun, it's surprising that she's worn so many white ensembles. While some celebs try to avoid white because it's not always flattering, Rihanna has worn a number of stunning white ensembles. This particular ensemble was put together for the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, and she completely stunned everyone with her simplistic look with incredible sex appeal. The white shirt was reminiscent of a men's white button-up but was left completely open to expose her cleavage and flawless skin.
6 Kristen Stewart
There aren't a great number of actresses that have been on such a roller-coaster ride when it comes to public opinion like Kristen Stewart. She was thrust into stardom with her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight film series, and her relationship with her costar, Robert Pattinson, only helped to fuel the flames. However, things came crashing down when photos were released that revealed she was having an affair with her married director on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman. The public condemned her, not just for having an affair with a married man but also for breaking the heart of the beloved Pattinson. Yet, that doesn't mean that she'll stay on the bottom forever. She's emerged with a whole new persona, a whole new look, and a whole new sexuality. When attending the Café Society event for the 2016 Cannes International Film Festival, Stewart proved that she can still look incredibly sexy in just a simple white t-shirt.
5 Chrissy Teigen
Chrissy Teigen is considered one of the most successful models to have been able to crossover to mainstream success. While the magazine spreads and covers were definitely helpful in notching up her notoriety, it was all of the other side projects that truly amplified her fame. To be fair, marrying the music artist, John Legend, was definitely helpful in getting her name to become known to the world, but the rest of her success came from her stellar good looks and quirky personality. From being a television host to her numerous endorsement deals, Teigen is a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. She's also known for being a fashion icon and has consistently followed her own trends. The high-low white shirt she's worn on a number of occasions in different styles has been hugely popular with her fans. It may be because of the sexy flowing material, but it's probably because of the dramatic neckline and skintight pairings.
4 Jennifer Lawrence
Although Jennifer Lawrence got her start on television, she quickly transitioned to become a Hollywood leading lady on the big screen. She started to garner attention through her Oscar-nominated film, Winter's Bone, but it was The Hunger Games film series that truly allowed her star to rise. She won an Oscar for her appearance in Silver Lining's Playbook, and she started to gain a reputation for her fashion sense with a lucrative endorsement deal with Christian Dior. While she's often photographed on the red carpet in couture gowns and sophisticated ensembles, that doesn't mean she doesn't know how to go casual now and again. She's often photographed off of the movie set, and even her casual ensembles exude an amazing amount of sex appeal. Proving that she can look good in just a simple white tank top, Lawrence doesn't need all of the frills like some of the others to look like a Hollywood beauty.
3 Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid has evolved to become one of the most sought-after models in the fashion industry. She's walked on runways all around the world, endorsed numerous high-end designers, and has been featured in numerous magazines. Obviously, all of the interactions she's had in the fashion world have helped to give her a fashion sense of her own that can be seen when she goes out in her personal life. This particular look was what Hadid chose to wear to Kendall Jenner's 20th birthday party, and she looked absolutely stunning. The ensemble was relatively simple, with just a pair of black slacks and a white top. Yet, the white top had a soft sheen to it that looked incredibly sexy, and the V-neck design was perfect for highlighting her cleavage.
2 Kendall Jenner
The Kardashian/Jenner clan has received a huge amount of criticism over the years and not just because of Kim's infamous sex tape. The entire family has been accused of using their personal antics to try and gain fame and notoriety, regardless of the cost. They've also been accused of dabbling far too much in plastic surgery, despite their claims that they're mostly natural. Kim and Khloe have often refuted the claims that they have butt enhancements, but it's hard not to see the stark comparisons between their before and after photos. The latest in the clan to garner negative attention over her looks has been Kylie Jenner since she's started to slowly morph into a younger version of her big sister, Kim. Kendall Jenner is the one who hasn't felt the need to alter her natural appearance, and her reward has been a hugely successful modeling career. This white shirt ensemble is a clear cut example of why it works on this natural beauty.
1 Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie had been known to wear some over-the-top ensembles on the red carpet and barely anything on the big screen. Yet, that doesn't mean that she's opposed to wearing just a white shirt. At the 2014 BAFTAs, Jolie showed up to the event with her and Brad Pitt wearing matching tuxedos. This was right around the time when Jolie underwent a double mastectomy, and it was amazing to see her and Pitt as a united front, with her still looking sexy as ever. Although the two of them have since split, this ensemble was taken during their happier times. The casual men's style white shirt looked incredibly feminine on her and was paired perfectly with her tuxedo accents. With Jolie exuding the persona of being a sex goddess on the big screen, this ensemble shows that she can continue that title no matter what she's wearing.
