Earlier this week, I wrote about bitches stealing my trademark crossed-leg pose. Gorgeous blogger of Erin of Work With What You’ve Got commented, “I kind of want to do a tribute pose now, but I’m afraid you’ll rip out my weave!” I was so delighted by the idea of a blogger pose-off that I promised to leave all weaves intact and my fighting earrings safely in my lobes. I encouraged all the wimmins to go for the full-on pose: in addition to the crossed legs, you need hand(s) on hips and a big smile to do the complete WendyB.
You get to vote for the Wendy-est of them all! Let’s take a look at our contenders.
Erin is showing excellent hand and leg placement! We’re going to have to deduct a few points for the non-toothy smile but the use of leopard print is an important redeeming factor.
Sal is doing fabulous work here. Note the two-handed pose, red lips and toothy smile.
Liz makes the pose her own by eschewing the hands-on-hip action in favor of romantic long-stemmed roses. Different, but I like it.
Emma went for a variation of my standard pose. Impressive take on my “holding up the wall” look, Emma!
Siouxsie Law won’t show her face but assures me that she was wearing red lipstick when this was taken.
Mariel combines my stance with the controversial fashion blogger “look away!” look.
Let’s take a moment to admire Pearl Westwood’s perfect Chrissie Hynde bangs! I wanted those when I was in high school.
Um, Jentine? This is not right! Where’s your smile? I’m not sure this counts …
Oh, wait! Jentine has redeemed herself!
Lenya Jones has got it going on. Smile, legs, hands. Nice job, Lenya.
While you ponder your options, enjoy Madonna’s exquisite performance of Vogue from the 1990 MTV VMAs. Love the costumes. And the fan flip? To die for!
