Style icons who make the most of their pins
These ladies have never-ending legs and know how to make the most of them. Even if they’re not necessarily femmes fatales, they exude sex appeal and class.

Cameron Diaz

The beautiful Californian keeps her legs in shape by surfing and wearing vertigo-inducing heels. The result is a pair of stunning, toned and tapered legs that Cameron puts on display whenever she can.

Julia Roberts

Although a body double was used for the “Pretty Woman” poster, the amazing legs seen in the film are actually Julia’s, and she's no need for a double with pins like hers. By no means used to showing off her body on the big screen, the mother-of-three owes her popularity to her talent, dazzling smile...and her long legs.

Kate Moss

Britain’s most famous model has used her long legs to her advantage in her modelling career, and she's not exactly short of work. Kate’s lengthy pins have helped her make big steps (in the non-literal sense!) in the modelling business, despite her lack of general height.

Nicole Kidman

Tom Cruise’s ex-wife has grown even more beautiful since their divorce. Not afraid of revealing her beauty, milky complexion and sublime legs, Nicole’s style is classic and studied, but she always puts her pins on show. With Oscar-winning roles and an ad campaign for Chanel, she's one of Hollywood’s top-paid women.

Audrey Tautou

The French actress, known for her roles in Amelie and The Da Vinci Code, has long, fine legs which are slightly knock-kneed. Audrey is a natural, uncomplicated girl but her legs have a statement to make. Floaty skirts, short dresses, heels or even jeans and a T-shirt, Audrey’s casual dress sense is as good as her red carpet look.
