“Thin is in!” “Curves are back!” You’ve probably seen these phrases on tabloid covers throughout the years, because pop culture's perception of beauty is constantly shifting. But we love certain celebrities that didn’t slim down or fill out in pursuit of any trend. Yo-yo dieting can result in awkward body proportions. But these natural, confident beauties fit right into their hourglass figures that make for unreal proportions, and that’s why they look so good!
Check out 15 famous hourglass figures that we can't get enough of.
Okay, so Wendy Williams
has had some work done. Well, a ton
of work done. But, we applaud her for not only being open about it, but for being realistic about her choices. Wendy could have also slimmed down and lost her natural curves, but she wasn't phased by all the super-skinny celebs and kept her proportions proportionate.
It's not easy growing from teen to woman all under the watch of the media. As a teen singer, Mariah
was slender just like the rest. And, while most other pop singers developed eating disorders from struggling with their changing female figure, Mariah embraced her new-found curves and still rocks them today. Plus,
she wears them confidently next to a skinny boyfriend.
If it is true that curves were out and then came back, it could be argued Christina Hendricks
brought them back. Her popular Mad Man
TV series character, “Joanie,” is admired and envied for her curves. Men shake in their pleated slacks at the sight of her.
We love how proud Nicki Minaj
is of her itty bitty waste and huge
T&A. She has unreal, comic book hero proportions. And she shakes them in our faces regularly. She makes having a booty look like so much fun in a society obsessed with being thin.

After noticing that a popular magazine had photo shopped her thighs to be slimmer, she insisted the mag print a statement from her saying that those are not her legs and that she has real curves like real women. Go Kate!
The women on The Bachelorette
reality TV series are beginning to look more and more like Barbies. That’s why we loved DeAnna Pappas
. She’s one of the few contestants that have represented real women! We love her curves. And so did the men on The Bachelorette
Another celeb that we love for “creating” a bigger body is Coco
. Coco has a naturally bigger build. But, instead of dieting and slimming down, Coco just added curves in all the right places to fit her larger frame.

We love that the face of Weight Watchers has a real
body. Not only in Jennifer Hudson inspiring women to be healthy, she got fit and still kept her curvy figure.
Kim’s booty is so delicious, she has single-handedly repelled the once held notion that white girls don't have big butts. Her full chest and slim waist doesn't hurt much either.
You must you have a killer body if after writing songs about throwing a man’s stuff out on the front lawn, and insisting guys “put a ring on it,” men still worship you. Beyonce—bootylicious and curvaceous since...ever.
Jessica Biel comes on and off our radar, but when she's on it her fit figure and full bottom are always a topic of conversation.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer disappeared for a while after the era of Heartbreakers,
and when she came back the world didn’t quite know what to make of her new body. In fact, she got a lot of flack for it. But, now that our eyes have adjusted, we can probably all see the beauty in this dangerously curvy figure.
Shakira is the queen of hips. Her skin-tight, low-rise bottoms made it okay to have divinely thick thighs. And for that, we are grateful to her.
When it comes to Amber Rose
, Kanye West might have put her on the map, but her unreal proportions kept her on it. Not only is Amber voluptuous, she's legitimately become a fashion darling landing spreads for top pubs like Blackbook and Lifestyle Mirror.
