Who's Afraid Of Jennifer Lopez's ButtBetter Name Better Name Tropeworthy? Motion To Discard
This trope refers to film and music videos where the lead female actor or musical performer is slender or trim, but has a distinctively low waist-to-hip ratio, and where the film or video consistently obscures her distinctive figure with a range of filming and production techniques. Notable examples: Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce. Their full profiles front-on or side-on are rarely seen in film or video. Camera shots are head and torso only, angled so the perspective affects waist to hip or butt dimensions, or cut to new angle/scene before any 'full reveal' of body shape might occur. The music videos for Nicki Minaj are examples of a counter-trope.
