I haven’t seen a butt bow that’s rocked my world for a long time, but I just spotted this 1984 Yves Saint Laurent on 1stdibs.com.
Size matters. The YSL definitely outshines my own Guy Laroche butt-bow dress.
However, the winner and new champion of the butt-bow fashion stakes is clearly my new niece, Sabrina Berry.

Too adorable! That BB couldn’t be anything but fashionable coming from such a lovely family.

Oh, stupendous! In comparison, whatever your butt bow may lack (only slightly!) in amplitude, it more than makes up for in placement.
Lovely that Sabrina Berry is already a fashionista – so lucky to have such a cool trailblazing auntie as you!
I can’t claim credit for the baby’s bow. I didn’t give her that little ensemble. But I am impressed that my father is such a dedicated blog reader that he took a picture of Sabrina and sent it to me with a note that said “butt bow!”
Oh my God i LOVE that dress! So stylish!The ribbon fits really well! 🙂

As a lover of 80s fashion, I do love a good butt bow, but not necessarily one that reminds me of the Mos Def song, Ms. Fat Booty, in which he describes the girl as having “an ass so fat you could see it from the front.” I think probably neither BBs or asses should be big enough to see from the front. Which means your niece is doing it exactly right.
Ha ha ha! Love that song.
lol! ok, i only like it on the baby! so cute!

That purple bow is gorgeous – very Quality Street. Baby Butt-Bow is too cute. Your dad sounds like a man I can relate to! purr..rr
OMG, I’m going to scoop up little Sabrina as a client ASAP. Gotta start ’em young and she’s already proving she’s a style maven! Love it , love it.
Terri is in for a ride 🙂
There is nothing like a butt bow on a brand new squishy!!!!!
I do like Beyonce’s butt bow at her I Am… World Tour by Thierry Mugler. Nothing beat Beyonce’s butt: http://www.beyonceonline.com/sites/beyonce/files/imagecache/555_wide/photos/IMG_4224.jpg
That one would cushion her nicely if she continued that backward trajectory she’s on!

Ha! I love a good butt bow!!!
You look gorgeous in that 2007!
I like the YSL dress, it just so happens to be that navy blue and fushia are a couple of my favorite colors.
That’s an adorable little but bow on your neice babies can get away with wearing anything
