Hollywood actress and style icon Diane Kruger proved the crop top trend is here to stay when she was spotted this week bearing her enviably toned midriff in a fetching Chloe blouse from the S/S13 collection.

The 36-year-old former model, who is in long-term relationship with Dawson Creek actor Joshua Jackson, proved her fashion credentials while out and about in her home city of New York.

Also advocating the trend, Beyonce put those pregnancy rumours to bed by posting pictures of herself in a pair of denim hot pants and a short tee, revealing some very firm abs. Actually, Beyonce is rarely seen out of a short top these days. Just a week earlier she was spotted in a matching stripy crop top and skirt combo while out with her hubby Jay-Z.

Body envy, much?

There’s only one thing for it ladies, no one wants to flash their muffin top, so it’s time for some serious ab crunches. When happy, hit the stores…
