Summertime, and the living's easy -- except for those celebs who are filming episodes for their fall TV series.
Such was the case in L.A. on Tuesday, where AnnaLynne McCord, 23, joined her 90210 cast mates for a day of filming in the sun.
Sprawled out on the beach alongside her co-star Shanae Grimes, the star (who plays Naomi Clark on the CW teen drama) flaunted her slim figure in a black, retro-style bikini that featured a high-cut waist, cut-out designs, and tassels hanging from the sides.
With a figure as trim as hers, the 5-foot-7 blonde beauty proves over and over again that she can pull off anything from high-waisted bell bottoms to thigh-grazing rompers.
But for most, high-waisted fashions don't prove to be as flattering. Earlier this month, Rumer Willis stepped out in belly button-high daisy dukes -- a look which 83 percent of Us Weekly readers dissed, agreeing that the shorts were way too tight on the actress.
