Hot or Not: Bare Midriff Couture Rihanna (Getty). It's time to hit the gym because there's a hot new trend sweeping the red carpets and it's not for the faint of heart.

Starlets like Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez have all recently been spotted rocking midriff-baring styles at premieres and awards shows. The trend has also been all over the runways, with designers like Alexander Wang, Dolce & Gabbana, and Prada all including belly-baring ensembles in their recent collections.

Instead of exposing the entire stomach with low-cut jeans, this new midriff-baring style favors high-waisted skirts and cropped tops that show off a strip of skin just above the navel, which creates a sexy yet still demure effect. Actresses like Kate Bosworth have also tried out a more conservative version of the trend that exposes only the slightest sliver of skin.

So what do you think? Is this belly-baring style something that should be reserved only for toned and tanned young starlets, or is this a look you'd love to take out for a spin?
