It's summertime -- in other words, time to show off your tanned, toned legs. Here, divas both desi and from Hollywood show you how to style yourself in shorts.
The temperature is rising and these lovely ladies certainly aren't helping matters, what with their smokin' hot appearances on the red carpet!
In the following pages we bring you some novel ways to wear shorts this summer, whether you're hanging out at a casual or attending a cocktail party. After all, what better way to plan your wardrobe than to take style tips from the stars?
We start off with Jacqueline Fernandez, who goes the dressy route in her heavily embroidered nude shorts and a matching jacket, worn over a silk cami and teamed with patent leather pumps.
At the other end of the spectrum we have Victoria's Secret bombshell Alessandra Ambrosio, who reveals her endless gams in hot pink denims and a floral crop top. She accessorises with gladiator sandals, plenty of costume jewellery and a low-slung handbag.
There aren't many takers for Ameesha Patel's 'out there' sense of fashion, but if you're one of them, this 'I'm hot' outfit should be perfect -- the actress teams daisy dukes with a tasselled tie-up tee and flipflops for effect.
Just make sure you've got a bod as fit as hers!
Jennifer Aniston teams a pair of silk shorts with a tuxedo-style top, except that it's missing the collar and sleeves. She completes the look with elegant black pumps and a clutch, certainly glam enough for the red carpet!
Attending a rock concert anytime soon? Take your tips from Diane Kruger, who looks super in her grunge tee, graphic print shorts and knee-high boots. The sling bag and hat add a cool touch.
Opting for the trendy blazer-hotpants combo we have Evelyn Sharma. She livens up the monochrome with a colourful dash of yellow and a hint of midriff.
Never thought leather shorts and boots could look sophisticated? Padma Lakshmi manages to make that possible with her flirty rust-toned pair, set off by sheer stockings and a demure black tee.
Selena Gomez is the epitome of feminity in this ensemble -- the white shorts are complemented perfectly by her delicately ruffled baby blue blouse, loose curls and sexy high heels.
Not many women are confident of pulling off masculine footwear like brogues, but Kalki Koechlin looks straight out of the pages of a fashion glossy in this outfit, balancing them well with her pretty bow-tied shorts and peasant blouse.
She's got the best set of legs in showbiz, so it's not surprising that Gwyneth Paltrow shows them off in shorts every chance she gets. The actress looks like a million dollars in this pair, so tiny that even her jacket is longer! The fishnet top and killer stilettos are stunning as well.
Czech supermodel Karolina Kurkova boldly adds a pop of colour to the blazer-and-shorts combo going with solid red, broken only by the black footwear and feathered clutch.
Wearing shorts that have a nautical feel to them, Monica Dogra also shows a preference for jazzing things up with her silky red shirt and matching pumps.
It's not often that matching prints work on separates, but Twilight star Kristen Stewart carries off her mesh-patterned blue ensemble perfectly -- talk about high fashion!
Fancy vintage looks? Mad Men actress January Jones goes the whole hog, from her retro shirt, hairdo and high-waisted shorts.
And finally we have Alexa Vega, whose double-layered shorts are both unusual and becoming, ideal for a red carpet appearance.
