Pippa Middleton Spawns Butt Pad Trend, Really?


According to a segment on ABC's Good Morning America. we must credit Pippa Middleton for spawning the interest in butt pads.


Does she even really have a noticeably booty?

I like Pippa's body skimming Alexander McQueen as much as the next fashionista, but there were far better buts out there before hers. There's Jennifer Lopez who single-handedly brought booties back in style. How about Beyonce? Darn it, we could include Kim Kardashian in that list for that matter. And last I checked, Nicki Minaj was the behind behind the trend.

What do you think about Pippa's backside and butt pads? Is this a trend that just won't go away? Is it really a trend at all? Would you wear them to fill out your jeans?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
