Eva Longoria gave her 5'2" frame the look of length with a high-waist Victoria Beckham shift. In contrast with the plum bodice, the bright persimmon skirt gave her lower half a long and leggy line.

5'10" Liv Tyler chose a Stella McCartney sheath with silhouette-extending vertical panels. A high neckline and below-the-knee hem were proportionate with her height, while the curved side seams made her waist look miniscule.

Beyonce worked it Mad Men-style in a fitted Marc Jacobs sheath seamed at the narrowest point on her torso. Those of us without her perfect measurements can camouflage a larger lower half with a dark-skirted dress.

Cutouts-Curvy

Sports Illustrated

model Chrissy Teigen has curves aplenty, but passed up a plunging neckline in favor of a Prada design that revealed a peek of upper abs. Good news for us mere mortals-although Teigen is always bikini-ready, even those of us with a softer midsection can get away with showing off this naturally firm spot of stomach.
