Celebrities in Uggs: The Ultimate It-Girl Rite of Passage
Not too long ago, Kendall and Kylie Jenner passed another major milestone. No, it wasn’t 50 million Instagram followers or another coveted spot on a lingerie catwalk; rather, the sisters went shopping for Uggs. While this might seem like an unremarkable occurrence in their lives, it is actually pretty major when you consider the sartorial history of the Ugg boot amongst Hollywood’s elite. Starting in the early 2000s, the shoe became a status symbol of youth, beauty, and the power to wear something, well, ugly on your feet.
In recent years, the Ugg has become somewhat of a fashion taboo (although, I still rock mine while walking my dog) but if you think about it, just about every It-girl of the past 10 years has been spotted with that iconic boot on her feet. Here’s a look back at all of the Ugg ladies of yesteryear, and considering that fans of the Jenner girls were just infants at the height of the craze, we’re predicting an Ugg resurrection.
