One of the main social events in the world stars ceremony “Oscar”, there are only a few days — the next statues will find their owners this Sunday. There is no doubt that the camp celebrities and their stylists are already hard at work. A good way on the red carpet is always a combination of many factors. For the perfection of a good dresses is not enough. We must not forget that with him in harmony and make-up and hairstyle. But all the work can come to nothing if not to pay due attention to another important aspect, which has an impact on what impression will make a star in front of photo and TV cameras. Of course, it’s posing!
Talking about body language, how the stars choose the crown poses and can always get good pictures — we asked three experts: designer Anastasia Zadorin, model, and Director of the modeling Agency Modus VivendiS Victoria Laufer and clinical psychologist I hang Lucy Suleymanov.
For examples, we decided to go to the red carpet “Oscar” of the past, after all, this ceremony gathers the most number of star guests, and footage from the red carpet literally fly around the whole world. Right for mistake.
But if the style of dress the stars trying to find an individual, in terms of photos, many follow the General rules. The Internet is full of tips on posing — the basic rules today, in the era of Instagram, known, perhaps, everything. It is important to study their perspectives and choose the “working” side, to be able to catch the light and pay attention to posture — slouching is clearly not how you gain likes.
But no matter how hard it may seem, the science of posing, it turns out that in the “battle” (that is, on the red carpet) all is not so bad. Among the advisers of the stars not only by their personal stylists and assistants, but also the photographers.
If the paparazzi is important at any price to obtain the exclusive and about whether celebrity flatter caught camera angles or not, they’re not particularly think that in the case with the secular events, the situation is different — there are photographers interested in high-quality content and, of course, try to make beautiful pictures.

First of all, on the red carpet there are always people that show where guest is better to stand. Often photographers ask themselves a star turn in one direction or another, tell me how it is more profitable to put a foot or to correct dress. In social networks there are so many videos from the event, which heard the roar of the voices of the photographers, they literally shout, how to stand, you know which perspective is more profitable to look in their frame.
If you look at the pictures, but there are several of the most popular positions, preferences which give it many stars. Along with experts examine some of them in detail.
One hand is lowered, the second at the hip
This position can rightly be called the most popular and at the same time natural for the body. Worth a loom for the camera and it almost by inertia and become superstars, and tourists on the background of attractions. Such people’s love is understandable — in this position there is elegance, and sexuality. It’s not too ostentatious and at the same time allows you to gently highlight the curves of the body.

This posture accentuates the figure. It shows a sexy, confident in its irresistibility, attracts attention. In this position it is very easy to show accessories. Sometimes in this position you can see that the legs are crossed. If this position is chosen specifically, it helps to emphasize the waist and hide flaws. Do not forget about your posture. If man accepts this situation of course, usually, it says some shyness. Unconsciously, people isolate themselves from the group.

However, there are positive side — no wonder the pose with the slightly exposed forward leg blew up Instagram last summer, and having captivating celebrities and ordinary girls.

Elegantly crossed legs — trick to lengthen them to your photos to hide if necessary imperfection, which is often used, for example, Eva Mendes and Natalie Portman.

Hands on hips, shoulders slightly raised
This posture is essentially a variation of the previous one, but there are some significant differences. So accented to draw attention to the waist makes the posture more sensual, especially if you play with the shoulder line. But we must be careful — the “arms akimbo” can look a bit aggressive and too informal.
Stars understand that men react to the bends. So use this pose to emphasize the figure, reduce the waist, and showcase the outfit. This pose fits all. It shows the superiority. Elbows that are deployed in hand, talking about the capture space. If the person is also smiling, it seems that he completely owns a situation and space, he is a winner,
— Lucius says Suleymanov.

The position of one or both hands on the belt can already be called a classic — it is preferred by many celebrities, and this is not surprising, after all, so the waist in the photos will look thinner. If this elegantly lift the shoulders, this posture will allow slightly to highlight the collarbone and is particularly impressive look, combined with an asymmetrical or open dresses
— says Anastasia Zadorin.

In this position the impression that the man seemed to pull in different directions, he snapped, and constantly tries to escape in his life the speaker has. Visually, this pose elongates the legs. It is not recommended if wearing a long skirt or dress, as it creates the impression that people were wrapped in clothes. This posture indicates confidence, while a step to the side creates a sense of elusiveness and some originality,

But for the dresses with slit this position is ideal for fashionistas who choose this style over the choice of poses can be a long time not to think. In this case, the dress determines what position you should choose.
A good example is Angelina Jolie in a black velvet Versace dress on the red carpet “Oscar” in 2012. High side slit on the dress was created in order to demonstrate all slender legs and make the image more effective
— confirms Anastasia Zadorin.

Half-turned to the camera
One style that defines the pose, dress with open back. If you choose this outfit, it is also not worth the fuss in front of the camera and to invent something new. Yes, this pose can also be called classics, and to some it will seem too banal, but it works!
To get the perfect shots only need to turn back to the lenses, and then as if by chance to look. This position was popular in the 20-ies of the last century, when dresses of similar style appeared. It perfectly emphasizes the hips and the curve of the back,

— adds Lucius reported.
To learn from Victoria’s costs and those who believe that to perfection he lacks a couple of centimeters tall.

A wave of the hand
To walk the red carpet must be the most collected, because shooting there is always a line. At a photo shoot in the Studio to think and to try different variants together with the photographer, but on fotocelle place for experiments no. To get a good shot, there are only a couple of minutes and cannot be spend in vain, so better to choose poses and clearly repeat them in front of the camera.
On the red carpet, as a rule, many guests, so everything happens very quickly. The stars have literally one or two minutes to successfully get in the frame. Therefore, it is important to come up with a straight back, straightened the dress and the smile on her face. It is not necessary to hold your sight on one point for longer than five seconds, you need to “work” on the left and right sides, and photographers already choose a good frame
— advises Victoria Laufer.
However, for the unprepared stars there are a few tricks that will help disguise the current awkwardness. Feel uncomfortable in the static — go into the dynamics! While some stars literally frozen in one position and trying not to move, others prefer active gestures. However, here too there are nuances, because in this case, it is essential to look as natural as possible and not to beat on the public.
Very often celebrities like to welcome fans gesture with his hand. Any position of the hands in the air — a feeling of success and complete victory. Evidence of high self-esteem, or showing feels a person of high rank. This pose attracts attention, and the professionals always suggest. Such feelings, however difficult to play this position requires a sincere emotion. Therefore, in such cases you need to pay attention to the person: he is a sincere smile or a high
— said Lucius reported.

I always encourage my models to be as natural as possible. If the person is shy, it is very noticeable in the picture, he begins to slouch, much to the lips, all these details are visible even to the layman,
— echoes Victoria Laufer.
Accent on accessories
Many of us don’t know where to put hands when taking pictures. But their situation largely determines whether the pose is good. This is the most difficult experts referred to the position in which the arms lowered along the body — it requires a complete inner peace and confidence. But it has cons — standing at attention, of course, it is possible to demonstrate the outfit, but this pose does not look too impressive.
If the nice gesture in the literal sense of the expression is not your strong point, it is better to try to shift attention from the posture to some detail of the image. A popular variant in the case of a night out is a clutch bag.
If the accent you want to do on the dress, and chosen jewelry, celebrity choose a fairly modest posture, keeping ahead of the clutch with both hands,
