Shenae Grimes: To Shoulder Pad Or Not To Shoulder Pad

90210 starlet Shenae Grimes is doling out fashion tips via, 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.”
