Women Are Braiding Their Hair Like Unicorn Horns and It Is Truly Magical

Do You Have a Go-To Picture Pose?

Behold, the many faces of Jennifer Hudson! At almost every event she attends, she can be found blowing kisses at photographers. It's safe to say that she has a signature pose, but is it terrible of me to think that it's incredibly cheesy?

With that said, I do a few things before my photograph is taken. I throw my shoulders back, open my eyes a little wider, and turn my face slightly to the more flattering side. Otherwise, I wind up looking stone-faced and sleepy-eyed. (A bit like Mount Rushmore, actually.) But some friends, like Geek, never pose and always look great in photos. What about you? (And am I alone in wanting to give Jen's pose the kiss-off?)

On occasion, I will throw out the peace sign or hang loose but otherwise I just smile :)

depends, but most of the time I feel embarrassed to take poses and risk looking ridiculous especially in group photos

Maybe she's not even doing it to have a special go-to pose but rather because she has no freaking idea what to do on the red carpet (which is how I would feel - I would definitely get the urge to just do <i>something</i> while just standing there, smiling and posing).I do have a go-to face when somebody snaps me - I'm have to admit that I'm very vain regarding photographs

This is a very diva-like pose. At least use something a little less noticeable.

my goodness, she is so gorgeous (seriously, she looks spectacularly beautiful in every one of these pictures!), she really does not need to be doing cheesy poses like that...

That pose is kind of cheesy. I also usually have a go to pose. I have a tooth that sticks out and makes it look like I have ugly teeth, so I tilt my head the other way so to try to hide it and it seems to work okay.

She looks so silly, her face is completely serious and sort of blah then she has this strange hand position. Not a good signature move at all.When I'm in a picture I try to genuinely laugh because my fake smile is frightening, but I don't have any other kind of tricks

I used to then after seeing the end results I decided to go natural. Maybe, Jennifer should rethink her "go to" pose.

Cheesy is the perfect word. I'm not a poser cause hubby is a photographer and you never know when it's coming.

What a cheesy pose she's doing...over and over and over. I just make sure my eyes are open a little wider and that I have a good smile. Other than that, I don't usually try to do some lame pose.
