Here are 6 of the celebrity posing techniques to look awesome in the photographs
1. THE SKINNY ARM
Particularly when she’s having a princess-gown moment, Lawrence opts for the perennially-loved “skinny arm.” By cocking her hips to one side, then placing her hand on the opposite hip, her single arm not only looks more toned, but helps cinch the waist.
2. THE “PRUNE” FACE
You’re one syllable away from the Olsens’ signature smize. “Every time they pose and smile, they say the word ‘prune’,” a source told OK!. As evidenced by virtually every photo they’ve taken, the technique takes cheekbones to new heights.
3. THE LEG OUT
Angelina Jolie may have had her famous leg moment—but it’s J. Lo who works the pose *all* the time. The singer knows she has legs for days and accentuates them by putting all her weight on one leg, then sticking out the other leg in pointed fashion to elongate and define.
4. THE OVER-THE-SHOULDER LOOK
For anyone who’s been so bold as to try it, it’s a tough one to master in blithely chic fashion—yes, even celebs have neck creases. Rihanna works the over-the-shoulder pose every time she wears a backless number by lifting the shoulder, curving her back, and lowering her chin ever-so-slightly.
5. THE LEG CROSSOVER
Taylor Swift knows the power of putting one foot in front of the other. She crosses one leg over the other to make her supermodel stems look even longer and narrow the hips.
6. THE TONGUE-BEHIND-THE-TEETH SMILE
There is a trick that you must stick you tongue behind your teeth that will keep you from over smiling. If you smile without doing it, sometimes your gums show a little too much. It’s an actor’s trick!”
