Inspired in part by Strictly Fabulous Style's take on new red carpet trend (high-waisted pants), I decided to make this style spotlight a "practical or impractical" discussion.

Beyonce paid a visit to a local Houston, Texas food drive in a pair of high-waisted Dereon jeans. She paired her jeans with black studded Dereon top.

Singer/dancer/actress/TV & film producer Jennifer Lopez promoted her Spanish record earlier this year in a pair of high-waisted flare legged denim. She also wore wide-legged trousers with suspenders to team up with Secret Partners in Search of America's "Hottest" Dancer.

"Big Girls Don't Cry" singer Fergie rock her funky pair of purple high-waisted jeans with her new Fergie for Kipling handbag out and about in L.A. Eve flaunting her new blonde bob rocked a pair of dark denim as she left the Times Square MTV building.

High-waist pants practical or impractical?

I'm calling this trend IMPRACTICAL because high-waist denim calls for flat tummy and EVERYONE does NOT have one!

Only the brave and daring fashionistas can pull of this pull.

Rule of thumb: You don't want to rock shoulder-padded top with this trend if not you're going for a running back look.

Case in point: Jessica Simpson rocking a pair of ill-fitted high-waisted denim while having dinner in L.A.
