In October 2017, an Italian fashion blogger decided to take a fashion risk.

Valentina Fradegrada wore her bikini upside down and posted some pictures on Instagram. To involve more people to try it out, she even posted a video tutorial on how to wear it.

'Upside down bikini' soon became an Internet trend.

The next thing we know is models from other parts of the world are trying it and sharing their pictures.

The reaction to this trend is not all appreciative, though.

The Daily Mail has called it 'absolutely ridiculous'; while some others have called it 'dumb' and the 'worst thing to have happened'.

Scroll down to see the pictures and tell us what you think.
