There's This Thing Called "Baby Giraffe Pose" and Honestly, It Looks Pretty Good
If you follow Eva Chen (@evachen212) on Instagram, then you’d know that she likes posting OOTDs, aside from her signature #evachenpose.
But lately, we’ve been seeing a new type of OOTD from this style star and director of fashion partnerships at Instagram.
Chen, a mother of two adorable toddlers seems to have a thing for feet when it comes to posing for photographs.
The pose that she is doing now involves tilting one leg forward and the other leg back, “like I'm a baby giraffe walking.”
This stance makes you look taller and your legs look longer, even when you’re standing next to taller people.
Okay, yesterday I decided that my signature #igselfiemirror pose is called #babygiraffepose (one leg back, one leg forward, bum stuck out). VS supermodel @marthahunt said hers is called the Cowgirl (hands in pockets, one hip out). She also said that @hoskelsa does a similar move to the Baby Giraffe, but with a bit of a back arch 😂😂. Does that make me a honorary VS angel?!
We looked through the #babygiraffepose hashtag on Instagram and found some amazing shots.
I tried doing Eva Chen’s baby giraffe pose 😂. As per #evachen you have to stick your bum out, one foot back and the other forward. I think maybe I did my feet backwards. But hey, fun fact! my hubby who actually studied art said this is called a CONTRAPPOSTO! (it’s a human figure standing while putting most weight on one foot!) lol! _ anyway, this shirt is on amazon and it says “happiness magnet” on it because that’s me today 😎❤️🕉 _ #happinessmagnet #babygiraffe #babygiraffepose #contrapposto #counterpoise #fortlauderdale #coolmom #florida #southflorida #soflo #radiatepositivity #lawofpositivity #positivieenergy #zen #pinklady #filipina
Remember, you need to stick your bum put while doing it and the foot at the back should be slightly on tippy toes.
