10 Poses to Get You into Vogue: Part 2
Mar 29, 2011 - by Lester Brathwaite
Continuing on from our earlier lesson, turn on the wind machines and unleash the doves as we explore more of the poses to finally get you your long-awaited multi-page spread in Vogue.
What you're thinking: I haven't eaten in 4 weeks, my coke dealer isn't picking up his phone and if someone doesn't pour something alcoholic in, on or near me, I'm literally going to die. But I look great, right?
What you're doing: Weird angles, lots of slouching, while still showing the garment.
7. The Wistful Coo
What you're thinking: I'm caught in a violent hurricane of couture but my inner calm -- brought on by years of yoga and a small army of morally-suspect pharmacists -- keeps me the smizing eye of the storm.
What you're doing: A slight hunch, a graceful hand and an expression that says you might not really know where you are.
8. The Dynamic Sit
What you're thinking: Yes, this is sitting but you know what this isn't: Super Bowl Sunday. So I'm not lounging back with a bowl of goddamn nachos in my lap. Pardon me while I throw this leg up and concentrate on being effortless.
What you're doing: Hunching, creating angles with your legs and space with your arms.
9. The Couture Hunch
What you're thinking: I'm so thin that to prevent my ribs from caving in on themselves I have to hold them in place. I may have dropped a lung while in mid-hunch, but I dare you to tell from my face.
What you're doing: Arms akimbo, you hunch until you're basically doubling over and sucking in everything while splaying your legs out at awkward angles.
10. The Dynamic Stand
What you're thinking: Here I am, world! Take a good long look because I just officially shut shit down and own every one of you. You're welcome.
What you're doing: Once again, arms akimbo, but a strong stance that is at once seductive and powerful.
