According to your votes, fashion-loving stylist Lenya Jones won last month’s “pose like WendyB” contest. Congrats, Lenya! No prizes were promised beyond bragging rights — and those are priceless, of course — but I feel like that’s a little bit of a letdown. So I hereby offer Lenya free shipping on her next jewelry purchase.
I must ask for a round of applause for Siouxsie Law, who came in second even though she submitted a headless picture. You know you’re a fierce poser if you can do that well without a face!
Some gorgeous bloggers posed too late for the contest, but I still want to share their photos.
Megan Mae used every weapon in my posing arsenal: the crossed legs, both arms, lipstick and teeth.
Like Megan Mae, BonBon Rose Girl Kristin wore red for her pose. A good choice! Red is my favorite color. Unless we can count “leopard” as a color. In that case, red is my second favorite.
Sheila of Ephemera has a BIG smile going on here.
Kasmira of What I Wore Today gets extra credit for leopard.
Lei Ann of Lei Ann … Off Duty skipped the smile but her form is very good, don’t you agree?
Celebrities are getting in on the WendyB pose action too. Jacquelyn Joy spotted supermodel Iman doing my pose on Go Fug Yourself.
Gorgeous blogger Deja Pseu pointed out singer/actress Jennifer Hudson’s WendyB stance. Jennifer wins the celebrity division — look at her tense, high-up shoulder! That’s perfect! People attempting to take my picture are always telling me to relax my shoulder(s). Now I’m going to say that my shoulders are simply emulating Jennifer’s.
Even drawings are getting into my pose. Multi-talented artist Max Dana drew her observing eye character, Da-Eye, doing the WendyB.
I love the attention paid to the foot perspective.
Here’s the picture that started the whole “I only have one pose” conversation with my father, GeorgeB. It was extremely difficult to achieve this much motion. Dad kept saying, “Move!” and I kept saying, “I can only do my regular pose!” We finally got something usable, after we gave up on managing the shoulder.
Keep sending me pictures of yourselves doing my pose, and I’ll do a round-up every so often. Don’t forget to raise those shoulders!
UPDATED TO ADD ONE MORE STRAGGLER: Here’s Audi from Fashion for Nerds. Nice job, Audi!
I love the pose pictures. I tried to practice it myself but as I am so unco-ordinated I almost ruptured something, I think it was my pride.
hehe, good job girlies!
Make Do Style says
I’m off to be photographed today – I spent all night posing a la WendyB – we’ll see!! xx
Joy D. says
I really want to do this! I am always up for a self portrait challenge considering I use a self timer.
PS. I will probably not see you in New York this season but I will see you in the Fall for sure!
Penny Dreadful Vintage says
I tried to do your pose this weekend Wendy, but it just looked as though I was busting for the loo!
Some people have it and some just don’t and I fall into the latter, Oh well maybe I will keep at it NOT! nice pics of everyone else though.
Dangit! I was really hoping for the big win, here.
Hi there-well done to the gorgeous Lenya and all the others who look such wonderful posers too! I especially love this last pic of you, its so happy and uplifting!! xx
deja pseu says
Hey Wendy, that was me who sent you the Jennifer Hudson. 🙂
Hey, Iman stole your pose!
Sheila’s boots are fabulous!
Your trademark pose is sexy 🙂
It’s been really interesting to see other bloggers do the WendyB pose–no two are exactly alike even the pose is essentially the same. Here’s to diversity!
Thanks for the pic and link, Wendy! Your pose is awesome, as are you!
Miss Janey says
All lovely examples and tributes.
Megan Mae says
Thanks for including me in the round-up! Everyone looks so great. So much diversity among bloggers.
devilishly pleasurable says
I loved this post. . and that non-trademark one is fab too. Maybe you should trademark it and get a round up of the non-trademark pose 😉
Love all of these photos. Peeps are really getting into that pose!
You have some great new pose-a-likes here. It is hard to get movement right. I have been trying lately but we just dont have the light here yet. Xxxx
Faux Fuchsia says
I just got my mitts on a lovely book called New York Parties Private Views and there on page 62 is a chapter about your pal Zang Toi. Was hoping to see you on one of the pages. His apartment is divine.
Cheerio, FF x
Alas, I was not invited to that shindig!
I am truly honored to be named runner-up. Though my success probably has more to do with your gothiness than my fierce headless-torso pose.
Topaz Horizon says
I am SO LOVING the new pose! It’s so Hollywood, the raised shoulder, the naughty look back. Oh, and the windswept skirt. Was this for a magazine shoot?!?
It was for another blog I used to write 🙂
Topaz Horizon says
And I just want to add that J. Hudson is looking really hot.
The “WendyB” pose has gone viral!
What a great contest! I love that celebs are stealing your front-on pose. But that beach one with the swirling maxi skirt is my favorite.
Your pose is inviolable – in your last pic, your ankles are still crossed, your lips are red and smiling, and your shoulder is up. The pose can twirl, the pose can look coyly over its shoulder, but the pose can not be defeated!
You are so funny…and totally correct. This comment made my day.
I’m creazy about your layout ring!
The smartest idea ever…. you really are genius :)))
all my love,
Kasmira has the pose down pat.
Ha… and I like your beachy shot.. kinda unexpected for you but that’s cool to see too. I forsee sunset shots and pidgeon toes in your future outfit pics….
Only ironic pigeon toes are allowed in my photos! If you see me doing it seriously, slap me!
Emma at Daily Clothes Fix says
Congrats Lenya. A well-deserved win.
I love these extra entrants too. Wendy, you totally have bragging rights for starting such a craze which is now sweeping the nation(s).
Thanks for giving us some love!
Congratulations Megan Mae, you look darn fine, though you sure do look like you’re busting for a wee, as do all your followers. Still a very cute pose to showcase all the latest gorgeous outfits.
