Hollywood leg secrets

It's the season of short shorts and minis. We asked stars how they keep their legs looking great and what they love to wear to show off their hard work.

The first step, of course, is toning up your gams before you show them off. Jordana Brewster works out six days a week and trains with Harley Pasternak, who also keeps Lady Gaga in shape. Rose Byrne loves swimming laps, the ideal non-impact workout. Country girl Ashley Gearing sticks with an indoor/outdoor mix of Zumba and hiking, while running is the focus for Jennette McCurdy.

When it comes to showcasing the results, the fabulously glam Cat Deeley -- who styles herself, by the way -- prefers heels and minis. Wendy McClendon-Covey is loving the dressy shorts trend. Mom of two Amanda Peet loves a casual, breezy sundress. But for maximum flattery, it's important to think about where exactly the hem hits your leg. Sexy, fit Kim Cattrall says she looks for a specific at-the-knee cut to draw attention to her muscular calves.
