Getting out of a car is always a bit of a contortion act. You have to judge how high the doorway is, how far the ground is, and how to twist your body so you can gracefully slide out of the seat. Now, even if you’re not wearing a short dress and heels, this can be a tough thing to do. But when you’re dressed up, it can be nearly impossible not to accidentally show too much, or trip over yourself.
Photos of stars getting out of cars are currently popping up all over the internet, so these stars have mastered the art of doing it elegantly. They’re prepared for the photographers who are standing by to snap a shot as soon as the door opens, and their car exits have become works of art. We don’t know how these ladies look so good stepping out of cars, but we’re glad they do.
