The butt cleavage trend is absurd but has kept its roots dug deep into the pop-culture — here’s wondering why female celebrities miserably fail to rock the fashion disaster ‘butt cleavage’.
I can’t wrap my head around that butt cleavage trend. I mean what’s the point of short-shorts, or what’s wrong with the perfectly covered hips? In the past decade, we have seen many bizarre fashion trends like camel toe, ripped stockings, barely their jeans, spike and fade away but butt cleavage stayed. And interestingly also developed a political backbone in the ‘body positive’ Instagram world. Nonetheless, it soon sneaked into the pop culture. Now you see? It makes sense but the sight of it… really?
So, what exactly is Butt Cleavage?
Known by many names butt cleavage, intergluteal cleft, booty cleavage, ass cleavage is simply the crease between your buttocks, the starting of your butt crack. One accidentally exposes it while bending over especially, in low rise jeans. In an evolution of this showing off your plumber crack trend, Gen Z also added the under butt in the same boat which explains the short shorts.
What is the Butt Cleavage Trend?
The most notable initiation of butt cleavage on the ramp was in Alexander McQueen’s 1994 collection where ‘bumster’ trousers stole the show! The trouser rode so low on the pubic bone that the back of exposed the most shocking degree of the bare ass crack at the time. McQueen told The Guardian in 1996, “It wasn’t about showing the bum.”
To me, that part of the body—not so much the buttocks, but the bottom of the spine—that’s the most erotic part of anyone’s body, man or woman.Alexander McQueen
At the dawn of millennia, celebrities like Paris Hilton and pop-star Britney Spears can be blamed to take butt cleavage mainstream. The erogenous new trend took a dip in the following years but in this decade crept back even undermining the notorious ‘side boob’ trend.
Are We Done With The Boob Cleavage Trend Then?
NO! While butt cleavage can dethrone side boob and under boob trend – it can never replace the ancient sexy supreme boob cleavage trend celebrities rock. God, it’s the only cleavage trend that makes sense when you think about trends like camel toe, hip cleavage, toe cleavage, leg cleavage, male cleavage and what not!
Is Butt Cleavage Body Positive?
Also, let’s talk about the ‘political roots’ that the trend has found on social media. Across the globe, women get to decide how and what they want to flaunt. Some take to flaunt their ass crack others the under butt – but in both the cases the flaunting of their most erogenous zone has also become a way of rebelling – stating my body, my right to express my sexuality! #MyBodyMyRules
Further, in the age of social media, however, the butt crack trend is EVERYWHERE. Thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Kim along with other Kardashian sisters brought it back to social media. (Pointing out the Paris-Kim connection here in case you missed it!)And very creatively so! Kylie Jenner slashed the back of her jeans to beat the California heat and in turn, added to the trend on social media.
Now you see the moral conundrum of this writer? So, while I still wrap my head around this bizarre yet beautiful trend here are 13 celebrities who donned but lost the butt crack cleavage trend.
Stefania Ferroria – Just the Right Size Model
Miley Cyrus – Own Your Body
Nobody flaunts their assets like Miley Cyrus. She is a supporter of free the nipples campaign and is an example of women comfortable with their own sexuality.
Kendall Jenner – Risk to Risqué
Kendall Jenner is a risk-taker. The supermodel often wears thigh-high slits and short shorts. The risqué factor of her flaunting the ass cleavage is always over the roof. In 2017, fans accused of Jenner of copying Rose McGowan’s 1998 VMA’s dress for the MET gala. But let’s just say it was highly inspired and not a rip-off.
Rose McGowan – Rebel With A Cause
The Charmed star Rose McGowan flaunts her sexuality the best. She donned a very provocative red carpet look for the 1998 VMA’s. McGowan wore a sheer, black beaded knee-length gown with a black thong on full display. Yes, the butt cleavage and ass crack at full display! Even before the #MeToo and Hollywood awakening on sexual abuse Rose McGowan have been vocal about the harassment. She explained to Dr Oz,
That was my first public appearance after being sexually assaulted. I was like, ‘Is this what you want? I’ve never worn anything like that before or since. That was a political statement. Of course, there was no Twitter at the time or Instagram, no way to speak for yourself.
Kourtney Kardashian – The Emerald Cleavage
Whatever Kourtney Kardashian does, she does it in style. She embraced the trend on Instagram by posting an image in emerald green sequin gown that boldly exposes some butt cleavage. While her fans went gaga over the picture we all know Kourtney has no real cooking skills.
Lady Gaga – The Trend Setter
Lady Gaga is many things an Academy Award winner, singer, actor but we often think of her as a fashion icon first! She once famously said,
My fashion is part of who I am, and though I was not born with these clothes on, I was born this way.
So let’s just say no trend has come and went by without Gaga noticing and her rocking the ass cleavage trend might have further popularized the trend!
Heidi Klum—Once a supermodel Always a supermodel
If someone can really pull off the ass cleavage trend it’s America’s Got Talent judge Heidi Klum. She once flashed her butt cleavage on social media showing her fans a sunburn while on a vacation. The supermodel, Project Runway host and mother of four have the perfect body to flaunt.
Jennifer Nicole – The Sexy Beach Bod
Let’s just say Jennifer Nicole Lee’s butt crack is a treat. The fitness model and author is well known for her body transformation. She often posts bikini pictures on social media sites and her followers just drool over whenever there’s ass cleavage involved.
Charlotte Mckinney – Behind the Bikini
The English model Charlotte Mckinney rose to fame with Superbowl commercial. She likes to flaunt her body one bikini at a time and set hot booty goals for her followers.
Anna Faris – Poster Child of Butt Cracks
While you can always find a picture of Anna Faris in a bikini (she looks super cute) she is more of an adding the cherry on top of the trend then rest thanks to her 2008 comedy movie House Bunny. More than a decade later the ‘Anna Faris butt’ scene will still leave you in splits.
Rihanna – Savage Lingerie Fun
Another fashion icon that we all hail! Rihanna not only rocks the ass cleavage trend by embracing her sexuality she also makes other women body positive as well. Her lingerie brand Savage X Fenty celebrates fearlessness, confidence and inclusivity.
Kim Kardashian – Hips Don’t Lie
Kim Kardashian well, the bootylicious celebrity has undoubtedly set trends on social media. And flaunting her butt has never been a question for Kim K. She famously broke the internet with her Paper magazine cover that placed a champagne bottle on her butt.
Ashley Graham – Sexuality Incarnated
There’s isn’t an inch of Ashley Graham that you can’t call sexy. Even her toe cleavage might give everyone a run for their money. The model never shies away from posing nude so showing off ass crack isn’t a big deal as well.
