Posh mastered the art of looking identical in all poses

London, April 24 (ANI): Do you wonder why Victoria Beckham, who is plagued by thousands of flashbulbs trained upon her every time she steps out in public, looks picture perfect every time.

Here is the reason - She has perfected a pose that makes her look slender and poised from every angle - and she makes sure to execute it every time a lens is trained upon her, the Daily Mail reported.

The pose - known to every catwalk model and celebrity in the business - is engineered to achieve the slimmest possible silhouette, while showing off clothes to their best advantage.

And the former Spice Girl has it nailed. To achieve it, the slender designer pushes one hip - usually the right - out to the side to create an angular S-shaped curve with her body.

Her left foot is stepped slightly in front and crossed over the right, slimming her silhouette, enhancing the curve of her body and bringing her legs down to a neat point.

Her right shoulder is pushed down and back, accentuating the 'couture curve' of her body, and her right arm is held behind her to narrow the profile further.

Her head is always held straight and high to elongate her neck, her chin tipped down to slim the face, or held up and back to create a firm, youthful jawline and lengthen the neck.

The result is a high-fashion look that some find contrived - but is the industry standard for those keen to avoid unflattering paparazzi shots.

The singer-turned-designer is not the only celebrity to be using the tactics at every opportunity - but she is surely one of the few to have nailed the technique so successfully - and to use it so religiously.

Posh pose is not Victoria's only photo-related habit either. The star, a relative newcomer to social networking sites, is nevertheless enthusiastic, and has taken to posting snaps of herself getting ready online.

This week alone she put up two photos of herself posing in front of the mirror while doing her make up.

Of course, given that she is sitting in front of the mirror, she could not execute the Posh Pose.

Instead, she has cultivated a new one. Sitting down, leaning forward, back arched, hands on knees. (ANI)
