Have you nailed your baby giraffe pose?

Posing for a full-length photo can be an excruciating experience.

Where do my hands go? What do I do with my face? Why do my feet look so awkward?

It helps if – rather than just getting someone to hold the camera and hope for the best – you have some go-to poses.

May we suggest looking to Instagram queen Eva Chen and using the baby giraffe pose?

Dont worry, being a baby giraffe does not require a sudden lengthening of your neck.

Instead its about pretending to be a baby giraffe learning to walk, all long limbs and deliberate movement.

Eva Chen shared the pose on her Instagram stories, explaining: I stick my bum out and tilt one leg forward and the other leg back. Like Im a baby giraffe walking.

Yes, it sounds a bit strange, but if you nail the pose it makes your legs look extra long and makes you look like someone who doesnt find having their photo taken unbearably awkward.

In an Instagram post Eva provided some more tips, noting that the back foot should be slightly on tiptoes – like youre coming off a step.

You can spot the pose all over Evas social media if youre having some trouble visualising it, but after a few stiff attempts, youll soon be baby giraffe-ing all over the place.

Dont worry if the baby giraffe pose isnt the one for you, though. There are plenty of other poses influencers use that you can nick.

Loved by the Kardashian-Jenners, this pose just involves standing on your tiptoes as if youre wearing heels. Look at Barbies feet for reference.

The stair sit

Find a step. Sit on it. Easy.

Put a hand in one pocket

If you dont have pockets (Im so sorry), just rest one hand on your hip.



The Cowgirl

Sling your thumbs through the belt loops of your jeans and pop a hip to the side.

Step to it

This one takes a bit of practice. You need to do an elongated step while getting someone to snap your picture.

If youve ever watched Americas Next Top Model youll know that a good method is doing a little jump forward.

Pretend you have a headache

Touch your fingers to your temples to frame your face and look super casj.

Just please dont call it a migraine pose.

Adjust your hair

It gives you something to do with your hands. Crucial.

Find a rail

Lean on it or rest your hand. A fancy rail is all you need.


Hit the kerb

Watch out for traffic and parking spots.

Pop a knee

Super easy but it looks a load less awkward than having both legs straight on. Genius.
