The fashion magazine took some heat after publishing an article citing a new “big booty” trend. A story pegged to the upcoming release of Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty” music video featuring Iggy Azalea unleashed a large amount of opposing views about the feature from readers online.
Titled, “We’re Officially in the Era of the Big Booty,” the article aims to describe the history of derrieres starting from the appearance of Alexander McQueen’s “bumpster pants,” at the late designer’s 1996 runway show.
“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,” the writer mused. “Even in fashion, that daring creative space where nothing is ever off limits, the booty has traditionally been shunned.”
That line, and others, sent readers into a tizzy, poking fun at the magazine’s most recent revelation.
Needless to say, readers took it upon themselves to mock the article on twitter under the hashtag, #VogueArticles.
