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.
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!
