Got legs? Draw the eye downwards with a gam-baring piece worn with a loose-fitting top. Rihanna (left) legged it in a bandage miniskirt, while Whitney Port played up her enviable stems in roomy hot pants.
This season, safari goes glam with the addition of crafty, embellished touches. Diane Kruger gave her cargo shorts a global spin with a lace top and a leather shoulder bag, while Beyonce dressed up khaki harem pants with a jeweled obi-style belt.
