Stellar Celeb Summer Style
As the Hollywood trend of having children continues, celebrity moms are the paparazzi crown jewels. Summer is on the way, so let's say thanks for the pictures from the paparazzi (annoying as they may be) and take a look at the top 10 celebrity moms and their own summer styles.
It's another summer of the short, according to Gwyneth Paltrow. To get her look, pair dressy shorts with a classic top, strap on any of the summer's amazing sandals, and you have yourself an outfit ready to go from day to night this summer! Mom to Apple and Moses also sports miniskirts throughout the summer to stay cool and chic, as well as the quintessential graphic print sundresses to shop her favorite stores or hit the talk shows to promote her latest movie. Other celebrity moms sporting the dressed-up short look are none other than SATC2 fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker.
Celebrity mom Kate Hudson reintroduces us to the shift dress -- a short, simple dress with a straight line that hangs from the shoulders and first became popular in the 1960s. The hemline is usually short and is appropriate for any body style. It's become a favorite among moms (celebs in particular), because of the ease of movement and ability to "shift."
Heidi Klum has emerged as a mammoth force in the fashion world as a supermodel, jewelry designer and Project Runway host. This supermodel and supermom of four takes the less-is-more approach with swimsuits but says that, even though that's what she prefers, you should wear what makes you feel comfortable. Heidi is obviously very comfortable: As she admitted to Oprah, she takes it off when no one is looking.
While the mom to twins Eden and Savannah doesn't think of herself as a fashion leader by any stretch, she certainly knows how to accessorize to protect her flawlessly fair skin! Wide-brim summer hats are her cover of choice paired with classic Cross oversized sunglasses. This Desperate Housewife doesn't hog the hats either; she makes sure the kids sport the look as well.
The world's most famous mom didn't keep her summer fashion sense under wraps when she was expecting; instead, she proudly showed off her style and her baby with romantic maxi dresses. Whether you're expecting or not, be sure the dress is not too big and not too small, and keep the cleavage under control.
Mommy J-Lo is known for pushing the fashion envelope, and many real moms might envy that courage (at least a little). One thing on which any mom -- celebrity or soccer -- can agree is that the bag can make or break the outfit and the occasion. Summer totes and oversized handbags are usually seen draped around Lopez's shoulder during the hotter months, with contents most likely apropros for a famous mommy of twins.
While this Jennifer may not exactly push the envelope, the mother to Violet and Seraphina does know how to blend in and find the most appropriate outfit for the occasion. Garner's summer style includes solid colors and understated accessories such as necklaces and simple studs with nude heels.
Even though Katie is on the younger end of the mama spectrum, she is moving rapidly up the style ladder. This summer, look for Suri Cruise's mom to wear bold colors with contrasting accessories, such as an orange evening dress with sea-blue pumps. She exemplifies the fact that opposites really do attract.
Posh Spice turned Posh mama (who is happily married to the man who shows that soccer is sexy, David Beckham) has edgy, dramatic style. Look for her summer wardrobe to be no exception. She brings out the soft side of Victoria, sporting ruffles with wide, belted skirts and even jeans.
Gorgeous new mom to Benjamin most frequently embraces casual style. Super-short Daisy Dukes with a plaid boyfriend shirt and gladiator sandals pretty much sum up the Bundchen glam on days she doesn't have to strike poses in front of the camera.
Summer style doesn't have to be synonymous only with celebrities. Get to know yourself, your body and what brings out the celebrity in you.
