Over the decades, the gods of posteriors have graced us with backsides that are a beauty to behold… from Monroe to Minogue, it seems the public can’t get enough of a prominent behind.
And while, of course, there’s much more to all these women than their bottoms, we can’t help but admire them for their curvaceous confidence.
We’ve compiled a list of stand-out rears that have captured the attentions of millions. Without further ado, here are the most prestigious butts ever to grace the pages of history.
She’s the definitive icon when it comes to the well-rounded rear. All the Kardashians are blessed with almost superhuman curves in all the right places. Whatever you say about Kim K, you can’t deny her booty is legendary.
Beyoncé’s looks are only part of her many talents and her unquestionable effect on the world – but her curvaceous dancer’s physique and perfectly toned behind definitely help!
The original sex symbol, Marilyn’s womanly figure makes her the quintessential icon of feminine sexuality. From the classic beach pics to the intimate nude shots, Marilyn’s tiny waist and ample behind make her sexiness still relevant today.
For those of us who watched the Royal Wedding (all 2 billion of us!), it was hard not to notice Pippa upstaging her sister. Her white dress and perfectly round butt have imprinted themselves on the minds of a generation.
She sings about her butt and she made twerking a worldwide sensation; real or fake, Nikki Minaj’s behind is firmly stamped on the pages of history.
The mysterious, dark-haired alternative to Marilyn, Sophia Loren’s sultry and sophisticated style made her one of the definitive sex symbols of the ‘60s and ‘70s. Featured regularly in subtly raunchy photo shoots, Sophia’s rear has quietly made its way into the public psyche.
Fiona Walker (AKA the Venus tennis girl)
One of the most iconic images of the ‘70s is the cheeky snap of the then unknown female tennis player. Fiona Walker’s perfectly round tush went – in ‘70s terms – viral. Teenage boys everywhere had the saucy image pasted on their bedroom walls, in an homage to a mysterious woman with a great behind.
This list wouldn’t be complete without an appearance from the queen of booties herself, J-Lo. Back in the ‘90s, her super-toned butt made headline news on a regular basis; now she’s a mother and in her 40s, she’s as sexy as ever.
So, there you have it. The definitive list of history’s most iconic butts. They come in all shapes and sizes, and all of them are beautiful! Which butt is your favorite?
