Celebrity cleavage - how (and how not) to show off your best assets

If you have an impressive cleavage, or you have recently undergone breast enlargement surgery and are dying to show off the results, you should be making the most of what you have up top. After all, dressing for your shape is all about highlighting your best assets and hiding your worst.

However, there are ways to show off your best assets without revealing too much. Over-exposure or simply an unflattering neckline can look really trashy, which is obviously not the look you want. To avoid this kind of look, use our celebrity examples of how not to show off your cleavage:

· Ke$ha – the edgy and often controversial singer Ke$ha broke the golden rule of showing off cleavage in a recent appearance – don’t off legs as well as cleavage. The singer flashed far too much flesh in low cut, tiny black dress on the red carpet of the VMAs, and the result was more trash than cutting edge.

· Victoria Beckham – Before VB took the world of high-end fashion by storm, but after her Spice Girl days, we saw quite a lot of her cleavage. One memorable example was a structured black bustier, which pushed Victoria’s chest (rumoured to have been aided by breast implants) up to a ridiculous and unflattering extreme. Tip – don’t push your cleavage up so high that it reaches your neck!

The best ways to show off your cleavage

If you want to avoid a fashion disaster, and perhaps even an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction, follow these better-dressed celebrity examples for flaunting your figure:

· Zosia Mamet – the actress, currently appearing in the HBO show Girls offered just a hint of cleavage in a gorgeous red velvet dress with a peek-a-boo slit in the centre when appearing on a U.S. chat show. Subtle, sexy and sophisticated – this is a look to copy.

· Jennifer Aniston – always well-dressed anyway, the actress wowed in a red Vivienne Westwood dress with a draped, peek-a-boo front when launching her perfume in 2011, drawing attention to her cleavage without making it the main attraction.

· Kimberley Walsh – the Girls Aloud and now solo singer revealed one of the best ways to highlight cleavage without being too overt on the red carpet recently. She wore a navy dress with a V-neck which would have been very revealing had it not been for cleverly placed lace panels, which gave Kimberley adequate coverage whilst also making the look quite sexy and grown-up.
