Big vulva energy is the hottest new fashion trend



(Picture: Backgrid – Rex – Getty)Staring upon the images of celebs on the Oscars red carpet, a fashion theme emerged with stealth: big, flouncy, ruffled pink dresses, all in varying shades of pink.
What shall we call this trend?
Unquestionably, it must be big vulva energy.
Take a look at Linda Cardellini emerging from cascading pink ruffles and tell me your first thought is not of labia.
Check out the delicate folds of Kiki Layne’s shoulder bow.
Even Sarah Paulson’s voluminous gown has the gentle folds of a set of labia majora, albeit in a far more striking colour than the average person’s set.
We have seen the rise of big dick energy and accepted it, but now is the time for big vulva energy – a proud reclamation of all things vulva-esque. It’s an embrace of the traditionally feminine – pink, ruffled, fussy – but with an unabashed boldness.
Massive voluminous skirts literally take up space, asserting the wearer’s right to be there, big bows threaten to whack bystanders in the face, and bright pink refuses to be ignored.

Forget the power suit, with its sharp lines and sleek silhouette. Big vulva energy – all ruffles and pink and frivolous detailing is the new power dressing, a bold statement that says clearly to the world: look at me, respect me, and think about the power of vaginas while you’re at it.
It makes sense that this is a trend to emerge on the red carpet in 2019.
This time last year we were right in the pit of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, prompting celebrities to wear all black on the red carpet in protest of sexual harassment and the unfair treatment of women in the entertainment industry.
It was a powerful gesture thanks to its unity. A sea of black dresses in place of the usual glitz and glam was instantly sobering, exactly as it should have been. It was a reminder that no matter how fun and exciting an awards ceremony may be, it can’t distract from the very real issues of gender inequality and sexual abuse.

The work continues, but women are ready to shout loud and proud, to stake their claim for space and power, and to refuse to accept the idea that you have to act more like men to get ahead.

Red carpet style is a tiny part of that, of course, but the emergence of big vulva energy as a trend sums up the mood perfectly.
It started with Janelle Monáe’s pussy pants in the music video for Pynk. Then we saw Villanelle in that pink organza creation in Killing Eve. The trend hasn’t slowed down: The vibe right now is wearing anything evocative of labia, but with the exact opposite of subtlety.
Be loud, be proud, be pink and ruffled. Display your big vulva energy with confidence.
