Carpet & Curtains magazine has named the “landing strip” the 2004 Pubic Fashion of the Year for women and girls. “It was a very tight race again this year between the strip and the full shave,” said C&C magazine editor-in-chief Maxine Nevins. “Although you might see the full shave celebrated more in the media these days, we believe that regular working-class women of this country are sticking with the refined elegance of neatly trimmed one to one-and-a-half inch vertical line of hair covering their pubis.” Pubic hairstyling, like most fashion trends, notes Nevins, are pendulous in nature. She predicts that the “full bush” look, popular in the 60s and 70s will be back in style by 2012.
