Designers, Stop Trying To Make The Fanny Pack Happen

Designers, Stop Trying To Make Fanny Packs Happen. They're Not Going To Happen.

Oh, fashion designers -- you can be so perplexing sometimes. Just yesterday, Tory Burch revealed a stunningly beautiful Spring 2014 line, with models walking down the runway in bohemian-chic looks. But one model caught our eye with her clutch, which, instead of being held in her hand, dangled in front of her like magic...

This could only mean one thing: Yes, Burch brought out the fanny pack.

This isn't the first time we've seen this interesting accessory on the runway, on the streets or even at red carpet events. The fanny pack seems to be the one item designers and celebrities desperately want to make a "thing."

How badly do they want to make it work? Here are all the ways fashion has tried to push the fanny pack upon us:

Rachel Zoe's red carpet attempt: Even someone as stylish and trend-setting as Zoe can't seem to get the fad to take off.

Kourtney Kardashian's Chanel fanny pack: Okay, the accessory gets a point for its practicality. Kardashian, a mom-on-the-go, needs her hands free to hold her precious caffeine. But not even Chanel can make it look good.

As a man-purse: Is that a mini-purse in a fanny pack position on We're confused... and this just looked so wrong and disheveled.

Amber Rose's furry fanny pack: This huge fuzzy pack (with a pocket!) just crosses the line.
