The high-waist jeans trend may be on the rise (mom jeans, anyone?), but the retro look of high-waisted dresses and skirts seen on the red carpet is much more figure friendly.
Eva Longoria Parker was spotted in a Nicole Miller dress in late October that magically lengthened her torso. The look, combined with a little extra length at the hem, morphs petite Eva into a statuesque model for the day.
And Scarlett Johansson already has a classic retro vibe going on with her gorgeous good looks. But in this high waist skirt from Mango, she looks like a modern day version of Grace Kelly.
