Vogue declares the "Era Of The Booty" some 20 years late

We’re Officially in the Era of the Big Booty
(Excerpt from Vogue )

As we await the premiere of Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea’s new music video, it would appear that the big booty has officially become ubiquitous. In music videos, in Instagram photos, and on today’s most popular celebrities, the measure of sex appeal is inextricably linked to the prominence of a woman’s behind.

For years it was exactly the opposite; a large butt was not something one aspired to, rather something one tried to tame in countless exercise classes. Even in fashion, that daring creative space where nothing is ever off limits, the booty has traditionally been shunned. Though nipples have long been a runway staple, the industry was scandalized when Alexander McQueen debuted his bumster pants back in 1996. And who can forget the horrified reaction to Rose McGowan’s barely-there beaded dress at the 1998 Video Music Awards? Today, Rihanna shows up to the CFDA Awards practically naked with her crack fully on display and walks off with a Fashion Icon Award.

Perhaps we have Jennifer Lopez to thank (or blame?) for sparking the booty movement.

When is J.Lo going to accept that her booty is not THE booty anymore??

Jennifer Lopez shows off backside during 'Booty' performance at Fashion Rocks

Dayum, J.Lo!

Jennifer Lopez not only set the red carpet on fire at Tuesday night's Fashion Rocks, wearing a black one-legged body suit, but she caused a five-alarm blaze inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
When she took the stage to perform her hit song "Booty," Lopez was literally in every form of the word.
She twerked, spanked and, yes, showed off her big booty in front of the sold-out audience for a night filled with music and fashion.

Jennifer Lopez rocked the red carpet at Fashion Rocks 2014 at the Barclays Center Tuesday night.
"Would you like me to seduce you?" she said at the start of the performance.
It's a lucky guess she succeeded.
Not 30 seconds into Lopez's showcase paying homage to voluptuous backsides did she turn around exposing her nearly nude bum in a high-cut bikini, silver-sequined ensemble.

But why have one big booty when you could have an entourage of plump derrieres?
The "I Luh Ya Papi" was joined by dozens of bootylicious mamas swearing black-sequined minis, who were happy to turn around, bend over and show off their assets alongside the internationally known superstar.

Don't be mistaken, Lopez was still the center of attention and even broke it down in a dance sequence, shaking her backside while several male dancers surrounded her while taking pictures with cellphones.
