Would You Wear a High-Waisted Skirt Like America?

With her curvy shape, America Ferrera really works this 40’s inspired glam look. But she’s not the only one star who’s loving high-waisted pencil skirts — we’ve spotted everyone from Victoria Beckham to Kate Walsh donning it. Unlike high-waisted jeans (which are tough on many body shapes), these sexy numbers are universally flattering and actually slim down your silhouette. Just remember to wear it with stilettos, wedges or high heeled boots. The longer your leg appears, the better. Tell us: Is this a trend you would try?

America truly represents what a woman should look like! She’s always so feminine and classy, she could be sexy without looking cheap and I love her for that! I wish the rest of these weird celebrities would take notes!

I am so tired of people called America Ferrera “curvy” – what is she? Maybe a six? eight? She’s not a big girl, people!

She looks beautiful and classy!

I would totally wear it. It looks gorgeous on her, though she always looks gorgeous.

I never thought that a girl with curves could wear a skirt like this, but it looks great and I think I’ll try it.

I think America is rockin that skirt. She is a perfect example of how even curvy girls can rock high fashion clothes!

Michele on

I love her skirt, America always looks so classy and beautiful.

There is no way she is a 6 or 8 — more like 10 or 12. She looks healthy and real … but this is a look that she can’t pull off at her size. Sorry America!

Elda on

Hot Mamasita!!

Maria on

I don’t know if i would wear it-maybe. But it looks great on her, she’s a beautiful girl!

Lucy G on

I love this 40’s glamour look on her, but I wouldn’t wear it; I just don’t think it would work for my body type.
