Celebrity fashion stylist and TV personality Dawn Del Russo says, "Try dresses with A-line skirts to camouflage wider hips."
Avoid tight dresses that cling to your rear, making it look bigger. Ruffles on the bottom are also a no-no. Draw the attention to the upper half of your body with unique necklines, embellished bodices and bold jewelry.
Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria and Shakira are all stars with pear shaped bodies.
