How to never look bad in a photo again

2014-02-27 08:38
Cape Town – With Oscars fever heating up we thought it would be a great idea to get some tips from the rubybox pros on how to capture your beauty eternally on film.

After all, sharing your good looks for generations to come is only the considerate thing to do.

Follow these pro-approved tips and work that Hollywood pose which'll have you looking your best – every time.

Hands on hips. This classic megastar move accentuates your waist and makes your arms (and the rest of you) look slimmer. You’ll probably also look and feel more comfortable than hanging your arms by your sides, plus it’s a great way you show off your manicure, jewels or clutch.

Lean back. Putting one foot  in front of the other, tilt your hips forward slightly and lean back to appear tall and slim.

Back it up. Wearing a gorgeous backless dress, or simply want to show off your booty? Look back at the camera over your shoulder – one of the sexiest poses of all time. Think Cate, Halle, Gwyneth and the 85 years of Academy Awards.

Posture perfect. Stand up straight, head held high with your shoulders back. You’ll look confident, taller and slimmer every time.

Stay still. The more you fidget, the greater the chance you’ll be captured in an awkward mid-move. Hold your pose and keep still until the photographer is finished.

We’ve got more tips for you here!
