Rosie Huntington-Whitley and Lindsay Lohan Cool Off in White

We’re used to seeing celebrities slink around in all-black outfits, but in the current heat wave, that would be a death wish. These stars show you how to keep it cool this summer in bright whites, and how to accessorize the otherwise demure hue.

English actress Rosie Huntington-Whitley looks all-American in her white halter dress accessorized with blue pumps and a red bag on the set of Transformers 3 (left).  Naomi Campbell beats the St. Tropez heat with boyfriend Vladimir Doronin in a crisp backless wrap-top and white short-shorts (right).

White dresses may have angelic connotations, but Lindsay Lohan adds a dark and textural edge to hers, with a chain overlay, crystal ring, and leather jacket, when she was spotted leaving Beso Restaurant (left). Kylie Minogue wore a Marylin Monroe-inspired white party dress with sheer cutouts to Radio One, but kept the outfit current and casual with a glitzy belt, studded sandals, and jean jacket (right).

Just remember, when trying these looks this summer, "white" and "BBQ" don’t mix.
