Is Dua Lipa making 'whale tails' a fashion statement?

Dua Lipa posted an image with a questionable look that has me wondering if we'll see more people do this

Dua Lipa posted an image the other day on her Instagram of herself essentially sporting a "whale tail."

In case you don't know what that is, it's your thong underwear showing above your pants for all to see.

I think this was actually part of the design of the dress she's wearing, but I can't help but think that now people will try to recreate the look using their thongs. What do you think of this look?
