You may have noticed a gradual shift in the type of photos you’ve been seeing on your Instagram of late. Whereas a few years back, your feed was probably clogged with duck face selfies, the trend today is more booty oriented.
A belfie is basically a pic that features your behind and was almost singlehandedly started by the butt queen herself, Kim Kardashian West. She is still the undoubted reigning queen of the belfie, but the trend has caught on and other celebs have been trying their hand at the awkward angle.
It’s become so popular that a company have even released their own version of the selfie stick, called the belfie stick. The device is used so you can easily take flattering booty photos minus the contortionism.
Kim Kardashian told Life & Style magazine that her first belfie picture, which now has over 1.1 million likes on Instagram, was not an easy feat to achieve.
“I took so many pictures and deleted them before myself and Kanye decided on which one to post.”
Her sister Khloe Kardashian recently got in on the action, and posed with talk show host Andy Cohen on his show, Watch What Happens Live. The 31 year old is clearly pretty proud of her new gym toned bod, and posted the snap on Twitter, writing
“Kim, you’re not the only one @andybravo took a belfie with!”
Kim struck the same pose with the talk show host back when she featured on the show in 2014.
We think that for us mere mortals, the belfie may be a little out of reach, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a good LOL at our favorite celebs attempting the compromising shot. You can check out the gallery below.
