Did Victoria Beckham Start The Shoulder Pad Trend?


Huge shoulder pads are very much on trend. We see them on jackets, shirts and dresses.

Yes, exaggerated shoulder shapes are back with a vengeance, with designers such as D&G and Balmain leading the way.

Should Victoria be credited as starting this trend, as she wore exaggerated shoulders on her Elle shoot back in October 2007?

i dont think she deserves credit. fashion always repeats itself....

If the birth of this trend came with those pictures, it is the person that styled her back then that should get the credit. If she styled herself then of course the credit is hers. But I don't think she was a trendsetter for this trend, although she has been for other trends. I am from Sweden and people have been wearing shoulder pads for a while now. H&M have been selling clothes with shoulder pads a long time now.

Nah I'd say Carine Roitfeld started the trend by wearing Margiela.
