Richard Beetham/ SplashNewsOnline.comJennifer Aniston in Degaine
Jennifer Aniston could be the poster girl for great jeans -- they seem to be her uniform of choice. Here she opts for a slim bootcut style from Degaine. "I started this style from our skinny jeans and opened the bottom slightly to make it more casual," says Gregory Abbou, designer for Degaine. "Jennifer is not a tall girl but she likes the bootcut look because it's very casual. Bootcut jeans can make you look shorter because the thighs and knees are too loose, so by using a skinnier base we are able to give the leg a better shape -- it makes you look taller and slimmer." The denim also helps make this jean ultra-flattering and wearable. "The fabric feels like a second skin," says Abbou. "It has enough stretch to hide the little imperfections so you can feel sexy without compromising comfort."

Gwyneth Paltrow in Superfine
As Gwyneth Paltrow demonstrates, the skinny jean is still a strong trend. The good news: Superfine designers Flora Pinter and Lucy Evans swear that when worn with conviction, this style can work just as well for curvy girls as they do for skinny minnies (thanks to a higher rise that knocks muffin-tops out!). Pinter and Evans are also quick to point out that this style works on both short and tall girls -- the former should rock them with heels; the latter with heels or flats.

Leighton Meester in Rich & Skinny
Though this Gossip Girl is not terribly tall, she still looks fabulous in Rich & Skinny Sleek jeans, which have long inseams. Says designer Joie Rucker, "They have just the right amount of stretch to show off and accentuate all your best assets. They lift your butt and hold you in where needed." Fans of this denim line also rave about the disappearance of the muffin top when wearing R&S. The dark rinse adds further flattery to the figure by accomplishing the same thing as wearing all black.

Pacific Coast NewsLauren Conrad in Lofli
Lofli designer Sheel Khemka says the Bluebell trousers are great on Lauren Conrad thanks to "pleats and rear pockets that lift and shape the butt." They also look good on hippier gals: "They offer a little more room along the thighs and knees for those with fuller hips, but they also drape beautifully on a slimmer body." Jennifer Aniston is a fan of the label's Streamline style. They're also cut to lift the derriere, and the wash works to lengthen the appearance of the legs.

Cameron Diaz in J Brand
"Cameron has long legs and pairing the skinny with a heel makes the whole look even sexier," says J Brand Creative Director and co-founder Susie Crippen, who says this style works on anyone, with one caveat: "What you pair your jeans with is the crucial element. If you have curvy hips, wear a long sweater that moves. If you have slim legs, wear a short jacket and great boot. Pair a looser top with a fitted jean and a fitted top with a baggier jean."
