However, Cara Delevingne wouldn't hear of it and revived the trend with a picture of her derrière on Instagram.
We'll hand it to her, as belfies go, this is a pretty classy one.
Instead of posing in a barely-there white bikini a la Kim Kardashian, Cara D wrapped her assets in a stylish black lace Burberry pencil skirt.
The sheer material of the skirt did hint at the fact the model might not be wearing any underwear though, but still.
Meanwhile, Kelly Brook wanted to prove she was still the bum selfie queen by posting a snap of herself in some racy leopard print underwear.
And so the belfie war continues. Thoughts? Tweet us @handbagcom
