From Studio to Street: 6 Ways to Wear Workout Clothes All Day (Winter Edition)
Oh, to have the time of day to leisurely shower, blow dry our hair and change into a darling new outfit after every workout. But that’s just not realistic for us, and we’re guessing the same goes for you. That’s why we’re all about incorporating our activewear into put-together outfits that work for any occasion (okay, maybe not a Gala). We’ve found new ways to pair our favorite workout staples (leggings, workout headbands, tops and running shoes, to start) with winter’s best looks to keep us warm and take us from studio to street in no time flat. By starting with some workout basics in fun colors, transitioning from your workouts to the your next event doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are 6 easy ways to still look refined this winter after even the most intense sweat session:
1.From Pilates to Party
Pilates is perfect for on-the-go women: it’s a sure-fire way to tone up and see positive results and you have an excuse to wear adorable workout clothes. Take a colored legging and workout top to the studio and march out with an oversized sweater and closed-toes booties for a chic (and warm!) look.
- Oversized Sweater
- Booties (These ones even have fur on the inside)
- Under Armour Teal Leggings

2.From Weights to Work
Like getting your workout in right away in the morning? Then make sure you’re wearing black leggings and a neutral colored workout top that can easily pair with a blazer and some shiny accessories for a totally appropriate weight to work look.
- Kendra Scott necklace
- Grey Blazer
- Teal Workout Top
3.From Running Laps to Running Errands
Need to run errands after your workout? Make sure to pack a warm jacket and heavy-duty boots in your gym bag to throw over a cute tee and save your yoga pants from snow and salt!
- North Face Jacket
- Sorrel Boots
- Athleta Tights
4.From Cardio to Chill
Having a girls night in? Make sure to get your cardio in for the day so you can feel better about lounging around in front of Netflix all night. Wanna feel even better? Throw on a cute baseball tee and easy-to-lounge in joggers with a fun headband for a perfectly transferable look.
- Athleta Headband
- Under Armour Joggers
- Comfy Baseball Tee
5.From Down Dog to Downtown
Yoga has so many healing benefits. From naturally detoxifying, alleviating pain and helping you sleep better, getting a yoga session in is never a bad idea. And now you have an outfit you can sport from down dog to downtown! Grab a pair of faux leather yoga pants and your cutest workout top for your practice, and then sport a stylish coat and heel for a night out!
- Wedge Bootie Heels
- Navy Blue Bomber Jacket
- Alo Yoga Moto Leggings
6.From CrossFit to Cross Town
There’s no messing around at CrossFit so be sure to have a sturdy pair of leggings, such as these bright colored ones from LuluLemon, and a good pair of sneakers. Afterward, toss this adorable jacket on and an infinity scarf to make your way back to the rest of your day: whether that means a walk with the dog or going to the grocery store.
- Lululemon Align Pant
- Knit Infinity Scarf
Let’s face it: Workout attire, especially the super-comfortable, easy-to-love (and wear 24/7) yoga pants, is pretty much the best clothing category ever created. It’s evident in the fact that athleisure — the act of wearing casual and comfortable clothing designed for exercise — has become a fashion trend in its own right. While we think that workout clothes are great for just about every activity out there, wearing them for too long can be a problem. Synthetic leggings, specifically, are not made to wear for long periods of time, as doing so can put you at risk for a host of health issues, according to experts.
What can happen to your skin
Let’s start with the bad news. After a class, there is a good chance you’ve worked up a full-body sweat — in some places more than others. Tight-fitting clothes can trap sweat and clog pores which welcomes a variety of potential issues such as:
Cystic Body Acne
Inflamed Hair Follicles
But don’t panic, most of these issues are avoidable if you take the right precautions.
What you should do
Joshua Zeichner, Director of Cosmetic and Clinical Research in Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, says that the sooner you can take off workout clothes and shower the better. “If you didn’t sweat much when working out then you likely can leave the clothing on for a few hours without any issues,” he adds.
When you hop in the shower, Dr. Zeichner also has some recommendations. “Remember, skin after a workout may be sensitive and inflamed, so stick to a gentle cleanser, like Dove Beauty Bar, that will hydrate you while you wash and won’t disrupt the skin barrier,” he adds. “Moisturize with a light lotion, like Aveeno Sheer Hydration or Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair, which can be easily spread without weighing down the skin — this will help calm things down.”
If you can’t shower or change
If changing or showering isn’t an option until later, ACSM-certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, Hope Pedraza has some solid advice. “First, I always have all-natural cleansing facial and body wipes to ‘shower off’ the sweat and gunk and prevent breakouts after a workout,” she says. “I also have deodorant and deodorant wipes on hand to freshen up.” If she knows it’s going to be an extra sweaty workout, she will bring a change of clothes and then freshen up with the body wipes and deodorant.
Don’t forget the footwear
Don’t forget about those sweaty shoes you just worked out in. Roger E. Adams, Ph.D., Houston-based dietitian, nutritionist, and founder of eatrightfitness.com, recommends removing them and placing them somewhere to air out (not in your gym bag). This will not only keep your shoes from stinking, but will also prolong their life. “Bacteria growth in shoes can lead to an early demise for your most important pieces of workout gear,” he adds.
The best way to avoid these issues is by getting out of sweaty clothes as quickly as possible. When it comes to less-intense workouts, it’s probably best to get out of those clothes sooner rather than later, but if you need to stick it out for a while, it shouldn’t be too big of a deal.
If you’re looking to spice up your wardrobe, sheer pants might be the way to go. They’re sexy, yet still more socially acceptable to wear out in public as opposed to just walking outside in your underwear. There’s also something incredibly daring about them (probably because you will be showing your underwear.) But if you’re unsure whether these translucent bottoms can even look good on a human person, we put together a gallery of celebs rocking them to convince you.
Most recently, Jessica Szohr, 33, rocked out with a pair of sheer pants at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards‘ red carpet at the Microsoft Theater on Mar. 14, along with a black bodysuit. We also saw the trend over the summer on Shakira. The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer, 41, rocked a pair of sheer, patchwork tights while performing at Madison Square Garden on Aug. 10, 2018 as part of her El Dorado World Tour. She paired her bottoms with a dark grey graphic t-shirt that featured an illustration of a tiger. The ensemble was rounded out with black arm warmers and chunky boots. But you don’t need to be on stage in front of thousands of people to rock see-through pants. The trend, like see-through tops, works well on a night out. Jennifer Lopez, 49, also stunned wearing sheer white pants at the launch party for her hit “Dinero” at the Bellagio on May 22, 2018.
Kim Kardashian turned heads in Sept. 2017 when she stepped out during New York Fashion Week in black tights, a thong, bandeau bra and oversized leather jacket. While she totally owned the look – and everyone thought it was intentional – she did admit that she didn’t realize how sheer her tights really were. Meanwhile, Halsey, 23, attended Wango Tango at the StubHub Center in May, 2017 wearing sheer white pants and a striped shirt.
Jessica Szohr stunned wearing sheer pants at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
In Feb. 2018, the social media maven took to Instagram to share a throwback photo of her sheer tights look. In the image, she could be seen wearing the outfit with her hair in a towel, and the pants are noticeably more opaque (but still see-through). “FBF to that time in NY when I didn’t think my pants would photograph that see thru #NYFW,” she captioned the post. Hey, I didn’t say this trend was risk-free! Check out the gallery above to see more celebrities in sheer pants.
Hailey Bieber gave a chic spin on the sheer look by plumping for a sheer skirt on the red carpet.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge flashed her abs in this netted Armani Privé number.
Priyanka Chopra’s sheer date night outfit had *everyone* talking.
Wearing one of her raciest looks so far, the Duchess arrived at the Royal Variety Performance in a sheer Alexander McQueen gown with a lacy, floral applique overlay.
Zendaya was officially the best dressed star on the Emmys red carpet in this delicious custom Vera Wang gown.
Lottie Moss put a chic twist on the nearly-naked dress trend as she stepped out in London.
She may only be 19-years-old but Kiernan Shipka stole the show at this year’s Billboard Music Awards in a sheer-panelled Christian Dior dress.
Taylor Swift stunned on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in a ruffled lilac dress with sheer sleeves and back. V ice skater vibes. Into it.
Naomi Campbell silenced everyone when she walked the Valentino runway back in January, even making a very overwhelmed Celine Dion cry on the front row from sheer (literally) beauty.
Gemma Chan stunned at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party in a sheer Tom Ford dress with draped sequins. Swoon.
Kristin Cavallari took to the Golden Globes 2019 red carpet in this chic and sheer golden gown and pulled the look off with aplomb.
All eyes were on Kendall’s sparkly gold Julian Macdonald gown at the 2018 British Fashion Awards
Unsurprisingly, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show served up some *seriously* sexy looks, but it’s the after party that we kept our eye on. Candice Swanepoel killed it in this strappless number with sheer skirt.
Joining Candice on the red (pink) carpet was Gizele Oliveira, who stepped out in a stunning Aadnevik dress with tiers.
Betty Bachz stunned at the premiere of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald” in Leicester Square, wearing a sheer red dress by Nadya Dzyak.
Queen of the catwalk, Gigi Hadid, proved that sheer can look totally luxe as she closed the Alberta Ferretti show in this delicious creation.
- Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner opted for a tiered tulle dress by Schiaparelli for the ‘Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil)’ premiere at Cannes Film Festival this year and we are absolutely here for every inch of it.
- Stella Maxwell
For the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show viewing party, Stella looked gorgeous in black lace and little else…
- Rita Ora
We have to give it to Rita, recently she’s been slaying all of her red carpet appearances. And although this dress is hella see-through, it is Beyoncé-worthy and one of the best things we’ve seen from her.
- Chrissy Teigen
As with many sheer dresses, underwear would have only ruined Chrissy Teigen’s look. The star wore a dress made up of black lacework. Risqué indeed.
Ashley Graham made naked dressing look totally chic in this Marina Rinaldi number. She wore the sheer dress, which featured pretty silver and black beading, over black underwear. And she looked HOT.
- Poppy Delevingne
We could have looked at Poppy Delevingne’s Reem Acra dress for hours as she attended the GQ Awards.
- Doutzen Kroes
To mark the start of New York Fashion Week, former Victoria’s Secret angel Doutzen stepped out in this jaw-dropping red Tom Ford gown.
- Cara Delevingne
On the promotional tour of Valerian, Cara wore a structured disc Atelier Versace minidress, which was VERY sheer. It looks like the concealing was done with the help of a nude body suit and some carefully positioned nipple pasties. Kudos to you, Cara.
- Kim Kardashian
To attend a Balmain event, what else would Kim wear than a tiny white bra top and a sheer, crystal-embellished Balmain skirt?
- Violetta Komyshan
Actor Ansel Elgort may have premiered his new film Baby Driver in LA, but it was his girlfriend, Violetta Komyshan, and in fact, her see through red dress, that stole the thunder.
To the amfAR Gala at Cannes 2017, Bella Hadid demanded attention in a sheer custom Ralph & Russo dress with draping sleeves and covered in crystals.
To the Met Gala 2017, Kendall Jenner wore the skimpiest dress of the red carpet. A chainmail La Perla gown which showed her entire behind…
Jennifer Lopez, the seemingly unaging queen, rocked up to the Latin Music Billboard Awards wearing this extreme cut-out dress. Lots of flesh on display, but doesn’t she look effing incredible?!
- Taraji P. Henson
To the 2017 SAG Awards, Taraji P. Henson went braless under a stunning sheer Reem Acra spring summer 2017 gown.
- Bella Hadid
At Christian Dior’s Haute Couture spring/summer 2017 ball, Bella Hadid wore a completely sheer, blue, diamond-encrusted Dior gown.
- Rachel McAdams
For the launch of her new film Doctor Strange, Rachel McAdams wore a stunning Elie Saab Couture dress. The dress was sheer bar some gorgeous swallow embellishments, which called for some full length spanx…
- Rachel McAdams
Here’s the dress from the back.
- Bella Hadid
Bella Hadid’s 20th birthday outfit was definitely one of her riskier looks. The outfit was comprised of a chainmail top and skirt with silver star-shaped nipple pasties fully on show.
- Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian is the queen of nearly naked dresses. She wore this crochet number to the Balmain Paris Fashion Week show and we’ve got a feeling that she’s actually having to cover her crotch with that hand…
- Kim Kardashian
Kim nailed the naked dress look wearing this sheer dress and body suit.
- Kim Kardashian
What to wear to a huge Vogue party? An embroidered, sheer piece of fabric by Peter Dundas like Kim Kardashian, naturally.
Queen Bey wowed her many fans in this sheer crystal dress at the 2015 Met Gala. The daring look divided opinion, but one thing’s for sure, it certainly got us talking.
- Kim Kardashian
At the very same event in 2015, Kim Kardashian also opted for a barely-there dress in the form of this silver embellished number. The details on the dress saved her modesty, and the feathers at the bottom added a bit of an edge that we’re very into.
- Lady Gaga
The Queen of bizarre dressing, Lady Gaga is another star who is regularly spotted in some pretty daring outfits. Here she is sporting a net dress over a pair of high-waisted knickers and some silver nipple covers. We bet she was cold…
- Jennifer Lopez
Proving nearly naked outfits can be the epitome of old-school vintage glamour, Jennifer Lopez makes sheer bejewelled dresses look, well, very classy!
- Miley Cyrus
Trust Miley to take nearly naked ensembles to the extreme. Miley made sure she would be remembered for years to come while hosting the 2015 VMAs.
- Perrie Edwards
Bravo, Perrie: you manage to make sheer dresses look cool, chic, and slightly 90s-esque.
Rihanna was seen in a similar sheer outfit to Perrie’s, but she chose to forgo the bra…
Kylie Jenner may be the new queen (sorry Kim) of glamorous, bodycon mini dresses, but this star also knows exactly how to dress down in style, too.
Papped as she was leaving the gym on Monday night, Kylie showed us her most favoured casual outfit – trainers+leggings+crop top+hat. Oh, and a green wig for good measure.
Considering all the amazing clothes we saw when the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star gave us a tour of her walk-in wardrobe(s) last week, we’re not surprised Kylie keeps on nailing this whole getting dressed thing.
This time, Kylie made sure her bright white trainers matched her long-sleeved crop top and baseball cap, as well as the white writing on her leggings.
While we’re on the subject of her leggings, Kylie did somehow manage to throw on a pair that were just ever-so-slightly see-through around the bum area – (been THERE, girl).
Luckily, she had two of her favourite accessories – her phone and her bag – to protect her modesty while those photographers just carried on snapping.

What Happens to Red Carpet Dresses After Celebrities Wear Them?

The popularity of award-show fashion has practically eclipsed the award shows themselves. For the 2017 Oscars, the E! Network devoted an entire broadcast day to the red carpet, starting with a morning “pre-pre-show” called “Countdown to the Red Carpet” followed by the hours-long “Live from the Red Carpet” with Ryan Seacrest.
For designers, the red carpet is one of the most visible and buzzed-about ways to promote their brands. In fact, some top designers will pay A-list actresses and musicians big bucks to wear their dress or jewelry — between $100,000 and $250,000 depending on the star power of the celebrity.

Other celebrities are allowed to “borrow” a designer dress, handbag or diamond-studded necklace for the night — for free of course — in order to get the designer’s name in the highly clickable red carpet photo slideshows.
But what happens to that very expensive dress when the red carpet is rolled up and the TV cameras move on to the next event? Is the gown stuffed into a closet never to be worn again, or does the designer take it down to the dry cleaner and try to sell it on Craigslist?
We reached out to Ariana Weisner, a Hollywood stylist, for some answers. Weisner, who dresses celebrities for award shows, press tours and magazine spreads, says that 100 percent of the dresses loaned out for award shows go right back to the designer. OK, 99.99 percent.

“On rare occasions, the designer will gift the celebrity the gown,” says Weisner, the most famous example being the plunging green Versace dress that Jennifer Lopez wore to the 2000 Grammys. “Versace gifted her the dress, because it was such an iconic moment.” According to Glamour magazine, the barely there dress is still in JLo’s closet.
The really big design houses like Dior, Louis Vuitton and Chanel will take back a red-carpet dress and keep it in their archives, says Weisner. You won’t see a “statement” gown from the Oscars resold to the public, dry-cleaned or not. But that’s not the case for lower-tier designers.
Weisner cites the rise of fashion rental companies in Los Angeles and New York for this trend. Less conspicuous red-carpet dresses from “whatever designers” (Weisner’s term) could very well end up on the racks of shops like Armarium or Rent the Runway a few years after a big event.
Sample sales are another place where you might stumble upon a dress that a celebrity wore for one big night. When a designer’s warehouse becomes overstuffed with leftovers from last year’s line, and sample-sized dresses that were tried on repeatedly in the store, they hold a sample sale.
“Sometimes you can get a dress from a sample sale that a celebrity has worn in the past,” says Weisner. “They’re usually pretty cheap, too, because it’s already been used.”
Even if you can’t get the very same dress that a celeb wore on the red carpet, you might be able to buy an exact replica. Every once in a while, says Weisner, a dress that really pops at an award show is picked up for mass production. One example is a silver stunner that Kate Hudson wore to the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars post-party. The designer sells the same dress online for “only” $3,325.

Really luxurious dresses not only grab the attention of E! viewers, but also thieves. At the 2015 Oscars, actress Lupita Nyong’o wore a white gown by Calvin Klein studded with 6,000 pearls worth an estimated $150,000. The gown was reported stolen from Nyong’o’s Los Angeles hotel the day after the Oscars, but was then mysteriously “returned” by the thief.
According to TMZ, after the dress burglar snatched the gown, he removed two pearls and took them down to the garment district. They were fakes! The thief dumped the “worthless” dress in a bathroom back at Nyong’o’s hotel and tipped off TMZ to its location.
Thanks to models and celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Dua Lipa, the trend of dressing in sporty, comfortable layers—also known as athleisure—isn’t going anywhere in 2019. That said, putting together an effortless, perfectly coordinated workout look (whether you’re actually working out or just running errands) is easier said than done. The best time-saving trick? Buy a matching set in classic black or a bright, statement-making color. It’s the easiest way to look put together on the go, despite the fact that you didn’t give it much thought at all.
When you’re shopping for “full looks” in activewear, consider a coordinating bra top and leggings, like Tory Sport’s emerald green set, or maybe throw on a matching jacket by Outdoor Voices or PE Nation. Even better? By trading your old leggings and mismatched T-shirts for these sleek, streamlined sets, you’ll finally slim down your overstuffed workout drawer. Here, we found 14 head-to-toe outfits to kickstart your New Year’s resolution in style; shop them all below.

It wasn’t that long ago that it was acceptable to throw on just about any old thing when you hit the gym, and you would cringe inwardly at being spotted in your activewear in public. However, thanks to the rise of athleisure, it’s now perfectly acceptable to toss on a pair of black leggings (with mesh panel inserts, obviously) with a printed sports bra, Nike kicks, a bomber jacket, and mirrored shades—whether or not you have any intention of actually working up a sweat.
If you’re looking to thank someone for this trend, look to buzzy A-listers like Gigi Hadid, Taylor Swift, and Kendall Jenner, who treat their activewear wardrobe with the same styling precision they’d give to a regular outfit. When these women are snapped by paparazzi after SoulCycle, they’ve got nothing to worry about.
In the gallery ahead you’ll find Jenner leaving personal training in a crop top and jacket, Swift in sporty short-shorts, Hadid in ultra-bright leggings, and more famous women in their finest fitness gear. Keep clicking!

Is there anything hotter than a snug pair of yoga pants? There aren’t many clothing items on this earth that can cling to the legs in such a flattering way. And they’re cheap too, so any woman can afford them. The pants come in a variety of colors and fabrics, like animal print, abstract, cotton, spandex, or whatever. Some girls like them tight, and other times, baggy is okay too. Beautiful women of all shapes and sizes wear these pants to the gym, or jogging on the street, or even to the grocery store, and men are held powerless in their presence.
We guys just have to turn our heads and get a second look at those pants, and then we have to glance again, to check the rear view. This is what most guys would do all day if they didn’t have to go to work. On their day off, some dudes might sit on a busy park bench to watch the ladies run by. Other dudes hit the gym just to marvel at the women’s lower half. We men are not judgmental, we are always appreciative. We don’t wear them, yet we love yoga pants more than women do.
So how in the world could yoga pants get any hotter than they already are? That’s simple. Just fill those pants with the buns of the most desirable demographic known to man: Disney starlets. Here are the women that grew up before our eyes, and now they’re older, hotter and in peak physical condition. This just may be the most comprehensive list of hot Disney starlets that ever existed.
15. Selena Gomez
Let’s start this list off with one of the most desirable celebrities in the world. Selena Gomez has captured our attention since she started out on Disney’s Suite Life, then Hannah Montana, and then she scored her own show with Wizards of Waverly Place. Selena stuck with Disney for a while, and did the Waverly movies, and Princess Protection Program, with on-again off-again, best friend Demi Lovato. These two starlets must be so competitive. They’ve known each other since the Barney kid’s TV show, and I’m pretty sure they must have auditioned for many of the same roles. Except for Spring Breakers, that film was pretty gritty, and Demi has steered clear of such projects. Here we have Selena just walking around in yoga pants. See, you don’t have to be working out to wear this stuff. You can just wear leggings to be comfortable, and that’s perfectly fine. Is she about to flip us off? No way, she seems too happy for that.
6 Vanessa Hudgens
Speaking of Spring Breakers, you just knew Vanessa Hudgens would make this list. She is perhaps the most often photographed of all celebs in yoga pants. That’s due to the fact that she’s always working out to maintain that hot bod of hers, and she still receives a large amount of attention from the paparazzi. The photo journalists have been following her for years, ever since the Disney days of High School Musical. Hudgens tried to shed her goody-goody image be leaking a bunch of nudes, way before nude-leaking was even a thing. This girl is a real trend-setter! She was super hot in Spring Breakers, by the way. She and Ashley Benson did James Franco in a pool. Then after he gets shot, the two girls stormed in a killed a bunch of gangsters. Kind of a weird flick. Hot, but weird.
5 Olivia Holt
Remember Olivia Holt? She was that cute as a button blonde from the Disney series Kickin It. She was also on the Disney sitcom, I Didn’t Do It. Now she’s nineteen and working on her next big move in the entertainment business. And she’s working on toning up her bod. Those are some baggy pants for a leggings article, but like we mentioned in the intro, yoga pants can be baggy too sometimes. Olivia currently has a Neutrogena commercial on TV, and she’s also landed a part in her first dramatic film, called Same Kind Of Different As Me. The film, based on the bestselling book, has an all-star cast including Renee Zellweger and Greg Kinnear. The movie may be a springboard to launch Holt away from her Disney roots.
12. Bella Thorne
Here is the gorgeous and lovely Bella Thorne, who started her career with the Disney sitcom Shake It Up. Can you believe this girl’s stomach? She has got to have one of the best flat tummies in the business. She works hard on those abs and takes tons of selfies to show off her body. This woman has a very attractive face too, but not so much in this shot. You ever go on a date with a beautiful woman? And then you’re sitting there at the dinner table and she starts to laugh. But her laugh is the most annoying thing you have ever experienced, and you start thinking, oh sh!t. You see, nobody is perfect, and there’s always gonna be something you don’t like. And we’re not really saying that Bella has an annoying laugh, but in this picture it just looks like she does. Just don’t tell jokes, and it’s all good.
11. Brenda Song
Our next starlet on the list is Brenda Song. Song has been in the Disney club since she did The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, as well as Suite Life: On Deck. Then something happened. Brenda got super hot. Were you aware of this? The girl is smoking. She was on the short-lived Seth Green sitcom called Dads, and people were like, who is that girl? She also appeared on New Girl as Winston’s hot girlfriend. Here she is opening the door at a 7-11, and we’re wishing she was holding the door for us. What is she going to buy in this store anyway? Coconut water? A Slim Jim? Cigars? Hopefully she’s not buying one of those sausages that have been roasting on the hot rollers for three days. Those things are gross.
Here’s Zendaya, who co-starred with Bella Thorne on Disney’s Shake It Up. Then she got her own show called KC Undercover, again on Disney. Disney also owns ABC, which may have been a reason why she was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Zendaya has guest starred on the hit ABC sitcom Blackish. She played the part of the oldest sister’s friend, who got cast in a commercial because she was racially ambiguous. The show is pretty funny, if you haven’t seen it, you should check it out. Andre Johnson, the dad on the show, played perfectly by Anthony Anderson, is a self-admitted sneaker head. Maybe his shoe fancy rubbed off on Z, because she is rocking some rad Jordans in this shot. She’s also been photographed wearing a rare pair of blue Jordan 3s with the faux elephant skin.
9. Maia Mitchell
Here’s another Disney star who is known mainly known for Teen Beach Movie. In Teen Beach, Maia plays the lead, Mack, the feminist surfer who falls in and out of love with Brady, the male lead, played by Ross Lynch. The musical film and its sequel are really cute and dumb, like most Disney stuff. There are nods to Grease and other beach flicks, as well as Back to the Future, with its time-travel twists. These two Disney flicks, and a couple guest appearances on the sitcom Jessie, are the least serious roles on the Australian actress’s resume. She did some serious series down under, and had another dramatic film that was just released last week. Mitchell plays Amy in Hot Summer Nights, a gritty writer/director indie piece by Elijah Bynum.
8. Miley Cyrus
Now this is a yoga pants picture for sure. Miley Cyrus is actually in the act of practicing yoga, with her soft purple foam mat, which is probably caked with bacteria. What position is this exactly? Well, in the ancient art of yoga, this is considered an arm balance. More specifically it’s a Tittibasana, since both legs are held over the arms. It’s informally known as firefly pose. This is way more difficult of a move than the downward dog position she was doing with Robin Thicke at that infamous award show. Miley was twerking away, and lost the respect of tons of people. People who didn’t even know who she was saw a GIF of her twerking in that flesh-colored latex jumpsuit and nearly barfed. She’s come a long way since Disney’s Hannah Montana, and she’s come along way since the twerk night too. She’s slowly but surely finding her center. Thanks, yoga.
7. Ashley Tisdale
Ashley Tisdale is a Disney starlet, known for her roles on Suite Life and High School Musical. Here she is seen coming out of a yoga class and clutching a bottle of Vitamin Water. Wait, no, that’s Vitamin Water’s cousin, Smart Water. But you’d have to be pretty dumb to pay $3 for that! Awful jokes aside, Ashley’s career seems to be in the dumper lately. She can’t seem to break out of her goody-goody TV star persona. Have you heard of Clipped? It was a TBS sitcom that ran for a year, and it was funny, but the damn show was just like the Disney stuff. Then she did Young And Hungry, with Emily Osment. That show is on the ABC Family network, which is as close to a Disney channel twin as possible. Tisdale’s latest credit is Skylanders Academy, a Netflix original, and it’s animated garbage. Let’s hope Ashley can get a more grown-up role soon.
6. Demi Lovato
Here we have Demi Lovato, who starred in the Disney sitcom Sunny With A Chance as well as the Camp Rock movie with the Jonas Brothers. Demi still shows up in acting roles, but she should focus more on her music. She seems to have already created her own sound, and has sold millions of records, and won many awards, including a Grammy nomination. Her tunes are way better than her evil step sister, Selena Gomez. I must admit that I used to be on team Selena. Selena is the prettier of the two. But, I don’t know, talent wise, I’m starting to lean towards Demi now. She seems to have more momentum than Selena. While Demi relies on talent, Selena seems to be skating by on looks, gossip and social media nonsense.
5. Aly Michalka
Our next entry is Aly Michalka, who appeared in the Disney movies Now You See It, and Cow Belles, as well as the sitcom Phil of the Future. This girl is smoking hot, and her sister looks great too. They have a successful band together, called Aly and AJ, but they’ve been on a hiatus since both sisters have stayed busy acting. Aly currently appears on iZombie, while AJ is on The Goldbergs. Aly starred on Hellcats, with fellow Disney star Ashley Tisdale. And while Ashley has struggled to break the Disney mold, Alyson has had better luck. Aly even appeared on Two and a Half Men, one of the furthest things from a Disney comedy. Two and a Half Men is so gross. The humor is cliche, immature, and degrading to women. Oh, how we miss that show. Why did they have to cancel it? Why?!
3 Peyton List
This next entry is a newcomer to most lists since she is now legally old enough to be talked about and ogled. Peyton List is mostly known as the pretty, rich daughter from the Disney sitcom Jessie, and its spin-off Bunk’d. Peyton has been in show business for years, first appearing on the soap opera As the World Turns, when she was only four years old. She has also starred in The Wimpy Kid movies, alongside her Jessie co-star Karan Brar. Speaking of Jessie, Peyton’s character on the show, Emma Ross, has been the subject of Disney marketing at its finest. Emma has appeared in KC Undercover, Ultimate Spiderman, and Austin and Allie. Add in Bunk’d, and this worn-out character has been in five Disney sitcoms. That has to be a record.
3. Britney Spears
Okay, so Brit doesn’t exactly fall into the starlet category, she’s more of a milf. I think you have to be under 30 to be a starlet. But we put Britney Spears on the list because she obviously is a huge yoga fan, and many people often forget that she started out with Disney, on the Mickey Mouse Club. She was cast alongside future big-shots like Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera. Then she dated Timberlake for a while, until he moved on to Cameron Diaz, Scarlett Johnasson and Jessica Biel. Meanwhile, Spears moved on to Kevin Federline and had a nervous breakdown. Talk about the yin and yang. One member of the relationship fell, while the other rose to the cream of the crop. Since then however, Spears’ personal life and hot body have made a complete recovery.
2 Dove Cameron
The next Disney beauty on the list is Dove Cameron, who you may recognize from the sitcom Liv and Maddie, and the Descendants movies. Oh, Dove. She’s kind of like a poor man’s Bella Thorne. She’s pretty, works out a ton and posts hundreds of selfies on social media, but she just can’t match the popularity that Thorne has achieved. They’re like the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith, or Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider, the latter is nearly identical to the former, but in some way they’re not nearly as good. So what’s the next move for Dove to try and up her game? Well so far, not much. The only non-Disney acting project she has had was that Hairspray Live business, and she played the racist girl. Not the most likable role, obviously. Keep trying, Dove.
1 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff has been in the Disney game since Lizzie McGuire back in 2001. Hilary has come a long way since then, and lately she is looking better than ever. So what has she been up to lately? Well, she got married and had a son with NHL star, Mike Comrie. After the couple got divorced, Hilary has been very honest with the press. She has said that dating and co-parenting “suck.” What may help is constantly being on vacation. Have you ever seen the paparazzi shots of this girl? I swear she has visited about every tropical beach in the world. She is also seen working out, especially since shedding the baby weight. Lately, Duff has been focusing on music, and her album, Breath in Breath Out. If you haven’t seen her sizzling video for Sparks, check it out.

23 Celebrities Who Should ALWAYS Be Wearing Yoga Pants
Fashion is something well dictated by celebrities, socialites, and high-end magazines. What celebrities have taught us in the last year or so is that yoga pants can be more than just workout gear. These stars have dressed up their workout clothes and dressed down their normal clothes in these well put together outfits that all surround one concept: yoga pants. Companies like Onzie, K.Deer and Alo Yoga have put out some high end, American made yoga leggings that not only last long but look fabulous. All of these companies would love nothing more than to wake up and see their leggings on a celebrity captured by the paparazzi. This is free advertising that any small business can only dream about.
Though many prefer yoga pants for their ‘tight around the booty’ nature, they’re also super duper comfortable; making them the perfect choice for a lazy day around the house or a trip to the grocery store. Oh, and they’re also great for yoga. One of the stars in this list is actually doing yoga in the photo, the others are either coming from or going to a workout. While others even dressed up their yoga pants with a pair of heels for a day out shopping.
23. Eliza Dushku
All of that vampire butt-kicking on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel must keep actress Eliza Dushku in tip-top shape. Just check out this photo of her backside in these adorable yoga pants. If you ask us, Eliza should make this attire her everyday uniform, because it makes her body look on point! While at the airport, Eliza was photographed by the paparazzi while getting her luggage and carry-ons checked out. We wonder if she realized that the one who was being most checked out was herself? Everyone had their eyes on Eliza, who was smoldering in sleek black yoga pants and a cute light pink T-shirt. Her booty was petite yet perky and with a gorgeous feminine roundness, and those yoga pants did it a whole lot of justice. She even has that all elusive thigh gap that all the girls want. Thank you, Eliza, for infusing an airport with so much sexiness.
22. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
As a Victoria’s Secret Angel, you can bet that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has the body of perfection. At 5-feet, 9-inches, Rosie is tall, lean, and oh so sexy. She has to be, it’s her job! Although we’re pretty sure that Victoria’s Secret approached her because she was already smoking hot to begin with. Some people just get all the luck in the genetics department. That isn’t to say that Rosie doesn’t work out like mad. She actually has a pretty intense training routine, just like most Victoria’s Secret models. Just see for yourself in this photo of Rosie in VS’s sport collection, which features yoga pants, leggings, sports bras, and more for women who want to train (or pretend to train) like an Angel. And if you want to see more gorgeousness, then check out Rosie in a recent photoshoot for Harper’s Bazaar. It’s amazing how someone with such one-of-a-kind beauty can be so versatile.
21. Jessica Biel
There are so many reasons to be jealous of Jessica Biel. First of all, she is married to Justin Timberlake and had his baby (who is gorgeous, by the way). Secondly, Jessica has one of those figures that makes you swoon with envy. Known for being equal parts strong and sexy, Jessica is right at home on the set of a blockbuster film as well as in the gym, pumping iron. The actress even practiced martial arts for her role in Total Recall. She also loves doing cardio and strength training to keep her figure looking tight and toned (even post-baby), and her favorite activities are volleyball, yoga, and plyometrics. This girl can seriously kick butt! We love this photo of Jessica getting her burn on in a downtown gym while giving her quad muscles the ultimate workout with a resistance band routine. See? We told you she was hardcore!
20. Zoe Saldana
While we mourn the fact that Zoe Saldana will not be in the Avatar 2 movie, we can take heart in knowing that she is still looking as hot as ever. Zoe looks good whether she is all in blue, pregnant with babies, or just waltzing around town. It may be hard to believe, but this actress is a mommy of two, and she still has the body of a young twenty-something! She was spotted in the city while wearing a sleek workout get-up: grey yoga pants and a long-sleeved top to match. Zoe is 5 feet, 7 inches of pure beauty, and she is one of those people who just naturally has very little body fat and the most supple skin in Hollywood. Her physique is totally svelte, and we give her some mad props for those defined and muscular quads of hers. And don’t even get us started on her butt; there are so many girls out there who would kill for that booty!
19. Kate Hudson
Not only is Kate Hudson an adorable actress, but did you know that she has her own line of exercise clothing? True story! And Kate is a fantastic model to show off the clothing. Check out her Fabletics items and you will fall in love with the patterns and styles that Kate has to offer. Of course, you might be bummed out that you don’t look as delicious in these pieces as Kate does, but hey, she is Kate Hudson after all. She can model any of the pieces, which give us a glimpse of her perfectly defined abs, her toned obliques, and the round shape of her booty. Our personal favorite is this pair of black and white yoga pants, which feature intricate detailing and designs that encourage the eye to move all around Kate’s legs and butt. Not that we aren’t doing that already! Yeah, we said it!
18. Kristen Bell
Kristen Bell has a lot to be happy about. Not only does she look smashing these days, but the 36-year-old is slated to work on Frozen 2, sequel to the ever-popular Disney film Frozen. Sure, there are rumors that Kristen is having a beef with Idina Menzel on the set, but you know how those Hollywood tabloids spin things. The truth is that Idina is busy with wedding plans, which is causing some scheduling conflicts with the Frozen 2 cast. No big deal, really…maybe they should just “let it go”!? Anyway, Kristen is one celebrity who takes care of herself, both physically and mentally. She has spoken out about depression and anxiety, and she can be spotted around town getting her workout in. We loved seeing her in these snug-fitting yoga pants, which showed off a perky and toned booty, as well as some seriously good-looking quads. Work it, girl!
17. Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis has been looking hot and sexy for years, and we’ve been wondering just how she manages to do it! From That ’70s Show to Black Swan, Mila has been a hottie with a body, and she looks delectable all year round. We love that she makes it a regular habit to pow around in yoga pants. The paparazzi have spotted her heading to the gym, grabbing a coffee, and just lounging around town in these yoga pants, and we adore them. Mila has always been a thin girl, but her curves are on full display in these pants, and we love that the fabric tugs perfectly at her hips and booty. We can’t imagine the number of squats and lunges she does each week, but the hard work is definitely paying off. We love these black yoga pants that Mila sported one hot afternoon; they were capris and showed off her toned calf muscles and tanned skin.
16. Miley Cyrus
Miley Cyrus can’t be tamed, and to be honest, we don’t really want her to be tamed. The singer is constantly leaving us speechless, whether she is appearing on a talk show in pasties, flying around nude on a wrecking ball, or dancing provocatively in a teddy bear costume. Yet what really gets us feeling hot under the collar is Miley in her yoga pants. Even though this kind of clothing is usually referred to lazy Sundays and girls’ nights in, when Miley wears yoga pants, she looks like a red hot diva. These pants are perfect for Miley’s signature twerking, and her defined abs and toned tush look absolutely fabulous in them! Lately, Miley has been galavanting around town with her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth. We bet that he is just as happy whether Miley is in a party gown or yoga pants! She certainly puts an X-rated spin on things!
15. Kylie Jenner
It’s usually Kim Kardashian that people think of when imagining celebrities with awesome butts, and yet Kim’s little sis, Kylie Jenner is looking mighty fine. The 19-year-old has transformed into a hot young woman, and she is definitely not afraid to show the world her feminine assets. Her social media profiles are filled with selfies showcasing her luscious lips, as well as her banging badonkadonk. Whether she is wearing a swimsuit, her workout gear, or an expensive cocktail dress, Kylie’s rear end is often at the forefront, and the paparazzi is always scrambling to snap the perfect photo. Lately, Kylie has been celebrating her sister Kendall’s and her mom’s birthdays, but people haven’t been ignoring Kylie. In fact, she is rumored to be the leading singer in a new band: Terror Jr. No matter her on-stage look, our personal favorite is her post-workout attire – tight black yoga pants that hug every single curve.
14. Megan Fox
Even though she’s had two kids, Megan Fox still rocks those yoga pants with the best of them. The bombshell actress paired her black yoga pants with a black workout jacket and pink top for a film. Fox hates going to the gym but has used a celebrity trainer to help her get fit for major roles and awards shows. She got her start in television in 2001 after she landed a regular role and hit series Hope & Faith. Her first role in films was in the Lindsay Lohan tween movie Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen and then her biggest role came in the Michael Bay action blockbuster Transformers with Shia LaBeouf.
Megan Fox is one of the most notable actresses in Hollywood for her beauty in the early 2000s and has appeared in some very provocative magazines. She has been featured and even on the cover of mags like Maxim, FHM and Rolling Stone.
13. Nina Agdal
Nina Agdal got her first work for companies like Billabong and Victoria’s Secret. She has also been featured in Bebe stores along with some international work. As far as editorial work, Agdal has been on the cover and within multiple fantastic magazines. Among these magazines are Vogue Mexico, Elle, and Cosmopolitan as well as her spots in Sports Illustrated Magazine. She was named “rookie of the year” by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue’s coveted annual list in 2012. Two years later, 2014, she was featured on the cover alongside Chrissy Teigen and Lily Aldridge. In 2013, Agdal appeared in one of those messy Carl’s Jr. commercials during the Super Bowl halftime show. This Summer she has been on Leonardo DiCaprio’s arm, the notorious lover of models. What changed with
12. Kim Kardashian
It could be said that everyone knows who Kim Kardashian is at this point. Between her reality show fame and her rapper husband Kanye West, Kardashian has maintained her place in the spotlight. Her extreme hourglass figure makes us so curious what yoga pants are reliable enough to hold all of the junk she carries in her trunk. The young woman is mostly known for her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians and related spinoff series. Her social media and online presence is something that online marketers can only dream about and her mother’s ability to hand her public relations makes Kardashian a name that is hard to shed from our minds. In 2015 Kim Kardashian was featured in Time magazine’s list of “100 Most Influential People” and she was described in Vogue as a pop phenomena. Kim Kardashian lives with her husband and baby North in Los Angeles, California. Perhaps not shockingly, Kardashian also models from time to time.
11. Vanessa Hudgens
This actress and singer got her fame originally from Disney shows but has since separated herself far from the Disney name. After her role in the High School Musical franchise and highly publicized relationship with teen heartthrob Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens rose to fame. She released a record after the films and it quickly rose to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. Hudgens was born in central California and moved up and down the coast to the Pacific Northwest with her parents growing up. She started performing in musical theater when she was just eight years old and got many plays under her belt before even turning 18. She started doing more intense acting at 15 and briefly attended Orange County Highschool of the Arts before getting privately tutored. Her first major film was a supporting role controversial teen drama Thirteen which garnered mild success. She has done Broadway, voice over work and movies in her time between now and Thirteen and looks dang good in yoga pants.
10. Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco is loved for her sometimes airheaded, but always wonderful portrayal of Penny on hit television series The Big Bang Theory. Before the tragic death of John Ritter she also played Bridget on the hilarious sitcom 8 Simple Rules. Though her character Penny’s personality from Big Bang isn’t entirely her own she definitely has that same lively spark; clearly viewed in this photo here. Before becoming an actress the young woman was born in Camarillo, California and got her start as a tennis player. She played tennis from the age of three until she was 16 and was at one time regionally ranked.
It was 1995 when Cuoco made her first appearance in the movies but her role on 8 Simple Rules was the most breakthrough role the star could ask for. Since then television has been her realm and she’s had multiple starring roles in hit TV series. She has had some very public relationships that haven’t worked out but the actress is currently single.
9. Kendall Jenner
Though Kendall Jenner got her start as a little nugget on Keeping Up With The Kardashians she’s now better known for the role that she plays in the fashion industry. There is a new world in high fashion that Vogue has dubbed “the Instagirl era” and Harper’s Bazaar calls “Social Media Modelling” and it seems that Jenner rules it. In this world, models are chosen based on their social media presence instead of the usual meet and greet between model and designer. She worked in mostly print and photoshoots until her breakout season in 2014-2015 where she walked in fashion weeks in Milan, Paris and New York. The aspiring model has done layouts for tons of international Vogue offsets and is a brand ambassador for Estee Lauder. She is one of the top 10 most followed celebrities on Instagram and makes an annual income estimated around $4 million. The model lives in a house she purchased in Los Angeles and prefers to keep her love life out of the media.
8. Gigi Hadid
Two years ago the young American model was named one of the 12 rookies in the coveted annual Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Here she’s pictured just getting some gas at the local pump in yoga pants paired with all Nike top and cross trainers. Hadid was raised in Los Angeles with a real estate mogul father and former model for a mother. Her mother and father have two other children together and then the family has two half-siblings on their father’s side. After her parents were divorced her mother remarried and added five more half sisters to the family. The young model graduated from Malibu High School where she was competitive in dressage and volleyball. Hadid moved to New York City directly after high school in an attempt to jumpstart her modelling career. In Fall 2013 she began studying at The New School in Greenwich, New York. She has shot three separate campaigns with Guess.
Head to toe in matching leggings and spandex top Rihanna pairs her workout clothes, the singer can bring fashion to any occasion. In 2003 she entered the music scene by recording demos with her manager in Barbados. She eventually signed with Def Jam Records and was taken under the wing of none other than Jay-Z. While she was being raised in Barbados Rihanna had tons of issues related to her father’s alcoholism and crack cocaine addiction. After her parents were divorced things got better for the young woman and she planned to finish high school until her music career blew up. Pre-music she was in a sub-military program provided by her school. She began in a three girl group but when they were discovered Rihanna was the only one that had that star shine. The young woman grew up listening to reggae which inspired her initial reggaeton beats on her first couple of albums.
6. Minka Kelly
Her road to being a famous actress was a long and windy one. Kelly is the only daughter of Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay. Her and her mother moved around a lot until settling in Chicago and then New Mexico as Kelly graduated from high school. After high school Kelly moved to Los Angeles to pursue modelling and met a former Playboy Playmate who hooked her up with a plastic surgeon that would give her work hours and pay her in a breast augmentation. She decided against the breast enhancement but fell in love with medicine and studied for a year to be a surgeon’s assistant but she continued to audition for film and television roles. In 2006 Kelly got her big break in the television series Friday Night Lights and acted in three seasons of the hit show. The New York Times commended Kelly on her performance and her future was bright after her character left for college and she ultimately left the show.
5. Ariana Grande
Another Disney star, Grande is an American singer and actress who got her start on Victorious filmed from 2009 to 2014. She signed a singing contract with Republic Records and released her debut album two years later, the album is called Yours Truly. Her second studio album was entitled My Everything debuted on Number 1. She has often been compared to Mariah Carey with her legendary vocal range and continues work her way into further facets of the entertainment industry. She remains one of the best celebrities at social media and has an enormous following. Grande posts all of her music videos to her Vevo account which is the 27th most subscribed to account on the entire channel and one of her videos reached 5 billion views. On top of this epic statistic her Twitter and Facebook subscribers have both reached more than 30 million. In this photo the young star has paired her black capri cut yoga pants with a teal workout jacket.
4. Katy Perry
The American singer was named Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson until changing her name before releasing her second album. Her debut studio album was released under the name Katy Hudson and was highly unsuccessful. After her record company went under the singer moved to Los Angeles she signed with Capitol Records in 2007 after being dropped from The Island Def Jam Music Group. Just one year after signing with Capitol Perry dropped the smash hit single “I Kissed a Girl” which raised quite the stir with homosexual connotations in the song’s themes. Two years later she released her third and uber popular album Teenage Dream and dropped the chart-topping singles “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Firework”, “Last Friday Night”, and “E.T.”. She was of the very first singers to have two separate videos on Vevo with over one billion views. Both “Roar” with it’s amazingly empowering message and “Dark Horse” with it’s fabulously dance worthy beat reached one billion views on the video sharing site.
3. Sara Jean Underwood
Just 9 years ago in 2007 Sara Underwood was Playboy Playmate of the Year and has since hosted American television and worked as a model. The gorgeous young woman was born in Portland, Oregon and studied at both Oregon State University and Portland State University. It was October 2005 that Underwood got her big break in the annual “Girls of the PAC 10” article featured in Playboy. She landed the cover spot of that issue pictured clad only in a painted on OSU jersey and bikini briefs. Her next gig with the nudie mag was as Playmate of the Month in July 2006 until she was given Playmate of the Year in 2007. Just one year later the magazine honored the young woman again by voting her #25 on the “25 Hottest Playboy Celebrities”. She has also had roles in some feature films like the spoof Epic Movie and Deadly Weekend.
2. Jenny McCarthy
Of all of the photos here we’d like to mention that this is the only one that features a celebrity actually doing yoga in their yoga pants. The star and television personality is featured in a balance heavy strengthening posture and displays knowledge of the ins and outs of yoga. She is an actress, television hots, author and screenwriter. McCarthy did a brief stint as a host on ABC’s show The View which is why we forget that her first big break was in Playboy magazine. Although the young woman was a cheerleader throughout high school she often refers to getting bullied and saying that she was an outcast in her teen years. She was selected out of 10,000 applicants for her first feature in Playboy magazine and continued to break into Hollywood after that. Two years after her first photoshoot McCarthy was cast as the host of MTV dating show Singled Out and a few years later released her autobiography. She’s since starred in some funny spoof comedies and spoke for the anti-vaccine movement.
1. Shia LaBeouf
The only man on our list, the brave and beautiful Shia LaBeouf has strapped into yoga pants on multiple occasions. As opposed to most of the ladies on this list he chose pink and purple leggings instead of black. LaBeouf has spent his entire career being a character in both his actual acting jobs and his daily life. In the past couple of years he has turned his life into a living piece of art, wearing odd things and filming odd videos.
His breakout role as Louis Stevens in the hit Disney show Even Stevens and received a Young Artist Nomination from the Daytime Emmys. After his Disney fame, the star moved to films and starred in the everyTransformers film that Michael Bay has made. He has won tons of MTV Movie and Teen Choice Awards in his years acting. He has described himself as Jewish stated a movie made him Christian before saying that religion doesn’t really make sense to him at all. The actor just eloped to Vegas with his girlfriend Mia Goth.
