They're baaaaack...

Oh yes, indeedy...the 80s power shoulder is back with a vengeance and I, for one, love it. Why? Well, anything that makes my waist look smaller and takes the attention away from my large-ish arse is a winner for me.

What's your verdict? Who does it best, and will you be pulling out the shoulder pads this season?

I know I should be commenting on the return of the shoulder pad (eek) but I couldn't help but get distracting by poor old Victoria....oh deary me, I'm surprised she didn't slip down that grate, could someone please feed the poor girl a burger with the lot and a huge side order of fries.

Ooops, 'distracted' even, sorry, that's how frazzled I was.

I'm with you Amanda, I'm all for anything that takes attention away from my muffin top. But I don't think I can get away with wearing ze shoulder pads anymore *sigh*. So I'll just stick to my mumus. Perhaps some funky bubble dresses...nah!

Charlize is lookin mighty fine BTW.

Charlize looks hot, but I'm also loving Michelle Monaghan.

Posh looks like death warmed up. Tres unattractive.
