No one has ever accused my sister of being a wallflower. She has never met a stranger, never shied away from the limelight, and she takes confidence to a whole new level. Even just a simple act of trying on her birthday clothes becomes a forum to showcase her spunk. The fact that she looks stunning in her new wardrobe is irrefutable. But it isn't the clothes that turn heads; it's the model. Here's a little pictorial tutorial on how to make any outfit look sensational:
1. Hands on hips - You remember when your mom assumed this hands-on-hips stance when you were a child; she meant business! Putting your hands on your hips in a photo shows the world that you are in charge. It says "I own this outfit!"
2. Embrace the light - This move says "The spotlight was invented for ME!" Soak it up!
3. Keep 'em guessing - Is it sassy hair flip? A cupped ear eliciting praise from an audience? Or perhaps an inverted nod to Rodin's "The Thinker" (Mama Hop is going to be so proud that I paid attention in art history class!)? No matter how you slice it, she has captured our attention and made us wonder.
4. Bust a Move - A cross between "Stayin' Alive" and "Walk Like an Egyptian," this pose has flair! It takes confidence to resurrect a dance move that is several decades old. It says "I could be mummified or in polyester bell bottoms and still be cool, so there's no question I make this petites separates ensemble from Kohl's look incredible!"
With a little modeling guidance from Aunt Leanne, you too, can put Heidi Klum to shame.
Work it, Girl!
