The 17 poses girls will do in photographs

1. The Squat
Originally created as classy way to duck so photographers could see people in the back row, the squat lost its practicality when the entire group decided to get a leg workout.


2. The “Candid” Kodak Moment
See someone taking sneaky candids? Better force some laughter so you don’t look bored. “You just ate lunch? Wow, that is SO funny!”

3. The Cheek Smooch
The ultimate bestie PDA, the cheek smooch says you’re super flirty (and have probably full-on scored some of your girlfriends). #girlsnight #wine #badcombo

4. The Skinny Arm
Who needs to diet when you can slim down your waist and one arm with this easy move? Use with caution, though: doubling the skinny arm may result in looking unintentionally sassy.

5. The Death Grip Hug
Quick! Your friends are falling off a mountain and only you and this photo opp can save them! We also heard that the harder you hug, the stronger the bonds of your friendships will become (until you crush their lungs and they can’t breathe).

6. The Gang Signs
Sometimes you just don’t know what to do with your hands, so why not throw up some signs or make your friends think you’ve pledged your allegiance to organized crime?

7. The “I Still Need to Look Good” Goofy Face
This is the go-to pose for the girl who wants to prove she’s fun, but she’s completely against outdoor sports, breaking a sweat and anything else that could ruin her makeup. But she is totally down to wink and stick her tongue halfway out. Move over, Zooey Deschanel; there’s a new quirky girl in town!

8. The Chin-Down-Eyes-Up
The late Princess Diana was famous for this trademark look. Minimising the double chin, maximising eye size – everyone is on to you.


9. The Classic Duck
Suck in those cheeks and get those cheekbones protruding.

10. The Rogue Tongue
“Ahh I’m so cool and mad and yolo, don’t even care!


11. The ‘Mad’ Taxi
Why oh why do girls think the taxi is a good setting for a photo shoot. Everyone is hammered, it’s dirty and dark and in years to come you’ll never be able to tell what night it was because THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME.


12. The ‘Hot Dogs Or Legs’
Tanned legs, swimming pool, probably a cocktail – yeah we get it, you’re on holidays.


13. The Car Selfie
Usually with sunglasses on, good light, great hair… Pointless picture in fairness.


14. The Leg Pop
Do you need to go to the bathroom or is one of your legs shyer than the other?

15. The “Don’t Tag Me on Facebook” Face
Often used when girls don’t think they look good so they can use the excuse: “Yeah, see? I was totally trying to be ugly…”

16. The “Get Away From Me” Lean
It’s like there’s some strange magnetism going on in your bodies – that, or your friend just has really bad breath.

17. The Linear Brady Bunch
This pose doesn’t make the best use of camera space and can be quite dangerous after alcohol consumption. Human Jenga, anyone?
