Vanessa Hudgens is obviously proud of the workout she is getting from LA’s WundaBar Pilates – and rightly so. Posting a photo to Instagram this weekend, Hudgens was decked out in an oversized light wash denim jacket, chilled-out drawstring sweatpants, and a mauve cropped sweatshirt. Captioning an emoticon of a sunshine wearing sunglasses, the incognito star may have been referencing warm weather (or looking super-cool); however, eyes are naturally directed to that massive sparkling navel ring.

Hudgens has been a fan of this trend for a while, displaying the bling on various occasions; however, a number of other starlets and celebs have also rocked navel rings of late.

Miley Cyrus expectedly flashes hers from time to time.

Never one to skimp on accessories the way she sometimes does clothing, blonde bombshell Caroline Vreeland definitely has her navel pierced.

What do you think of the piercing? Do you think it exudes sex appeal or is it a trend better reserved for the archives?

Whether you’re into it or you think it’s on par with tramp stamps (which isn’t necessarily a bad thing), it’s definitely playful homage to the early aughts (hello, “I’m a Slave 4 U”).

Who can forget classic moments in history when navels sparkled?

For years, Beyonce was a fan of the adornment.

Britney Spears could have been synonymous with strategically placed glistening stones.

The accessory worked well with her choreographed dance numbers. Click here to view a few animated GIFs.

Geri Halliwell aka Ginger Spice during her Spice Girls days frequently rocked the bling.

In 2007, Kim Kardashian covered Playboy, complete with navel piercing.

Kim Kardashian’s flashback photo of herself and Paris Hilton perfectly captures the moment of time when this dynamic duo, and popularity of the sparkling piercing, was in their full glory, with Kardashian’s piercing in full view.
