Shenae Grimes: To Shoulder Pad Or Not To Shoulder Pad
90210 starlet Shenae Grimes is doling out fashion tips via Minkette.com, the online community for all things designer Rebecca Minkoff. Here’s what the 19-year-old Canadian actress had to say about the dos and don’ts of shoulder pads:
“Here to chronicle the life and times of one of fashion’s most frightening trends, I must preface that the aesthetic created by these foam enhancements is only unappealing if executed incorrectly. A fine line must be walked to avoid reminiscence of the easily comparable Star Trek uniform and ladies… please, no gentlemen, your stature is broad enough… I am here to show you how to strut it. Shoulder pads CAN work in your wardrobe too! Our instinctive intimidation keeps us away from this runway commodity but there is a method to the madness and the key is in subtlety. The structure of this trend actually lends to a very flattering female form and can be interpreted in different ways to suit the individual.”
