Caution, legwear fans: you may have to rip it up and start again with your beloved hosiery in your quest to follow the stars.

Elle magazine, seen as a Bible for many fashionistas, highlighted the wondrous trend in tights exhibited by leading actresses such as Lindsay Lohan, Ashley Olsen and Mischa Barton.

Laurelle Gilbert, writing for the stylish publication, said: "The A-list's most rebellious girls are channelling their inner bad girl this week in ripped tights and leggings.

"The look is easy to crib, just take a pair of opaque tights and let rip."

Last month, singing sensation Miley Cyrus was seen strolling around Hollywood with her friends wearing ripped tights, revisiting a popular trend from the 1980s with her ensemble.
