Do you know what to do when the lens points to you? It’s notall about flashing a smile and hoping for the best. And there’s noone who knows that better than celebrities. After mugging it formillions of flash bulbs—including plenty of shots at this year’sNew York Fashion Week—they’ve learned a thing or two aboutlooking good in pictures, and now they’re sharing their lessonswith you。
"Sometimes you have to fake confidence, posture, or a smile—fake it until you make it!"
"Posing is an actual art form. You can give a really great dress to a girl, and if they don’t know howto pose in it, the dress falls dead. If the dress has an open neckline and a plunging back then yougive them the surprise over-the-shoulder. For me personally, I try to give smiles and no smiles. Ithink it’s good for them to give steely, sexy, sensual, and then just a happy smile."
"Work it! Have fun. Don't be nervous. If you're laughing and you have a genuine smile, there's nobad photo you can take. My favorite pose is the arm out on the hip. Have your face a little bittitled—I don’t like to face straight on. Chin up, and you’re good to go."
"When you stand next to someone, stand straight, and lift your head.
Keep breathing—don't be so stiff!"
"Wear something you feel really comfortable in."
"Shoulders back. That's huge! It just completely makes everything look taller and better."
"Three things: Blot your face so you’re not as shiny. Use excessive hairspray because if the carpetis outside, it seems to always blow the wrong way. And, last but not least, wear less makeup ratherthan more. Because when you go into pictures with more makeup, it just looks like a mess."
"I'm always nervous on a red carpet, when there's a thousand paparazzi standing there takingphotos. I'll forget that I was supposed to pose in a certain way, so I don't really know what myadvice would be, other than to just be yourself!"
