Look Thinner In Photos Without Relying On Spanx Or The South Beach Diet

We’ve noticed a bizarre trend of fashionistas assuming a seemingly unnatural position in front of the camera. From the red carpet to the standing section line, we’ve been seeing more and more crossing of the legs right before the flash goes off. Why this sudden urge to stick one foot in front and twist the torso? It turns out there is a method to the madness – and it’s not always a too-tight pair of Spanx. This trick has been used by celebrities for ages in order to appear slimmer in photos, and now fashion show attendees are striking the pose too.

By turning slightly sideways, pointing your front foot directly at the camera, and shifting your weight to your back foot, you too can appear super thin.

Just make sure your putting your best pump forward. We’re loving these party- ready Grosgrain Pumps ($19.80) which can be worn alone or with black tights. Or if you want to make more of a statement for the cameras, try these trendsetting Steve Madden Triumphh Pumps ($80).

Other slenderizing secrets include keeping your shoulders back and chest up while holding your arms slightly away from your body. Also, keep your head up to minimize the appearance of the double chin.
