Beyoncé's Flamingo Pose
We’ve had halo brows, the controversial Migraine pose, the Bambi one and Barbie feet, and now the latest trend taking Instagram by storm is the Flamingo pose.
While thinking of interesting ways to position yourself for those summer vacay snaps without looking awkward, you might want to consider the pose as it’s super flattering.
AAAH!! What a year it’s been! I shed tears of joy as I write this! Taking control of my journey was one of my proudest moments of my life. I’ve been able to book magazine covers I’ve always dreamt of being on, rock on stages I’ve been dying to perform on again, and in doing so allowed me to discover the power of the relationship I have with my fans! #CSQUAD! I also learned that #BeautyMarks to date has sold over 135k equivalent global album units, spurred a Gold Record with Level Up which is now VERY close to being platinum and the entire project generated over 208 million global YouTube views! I couldn’t be more excited looking towards the future and everything we have planned for this year and beyond! Truly feeling like a kid all over again! I’m truly grateful, for my family, friends, team and all of you that have lifted me up! It means the world to me! Love Ciara
The social media trend that is quickly gathering speed thanks to the celebrity Insta-set is also cute, fun and can add an elegant touch.
The pose involves standing on one leg with the other leg bent in a slightly triangular shape, well just like a flamingo. Thankfully, you don’t have to do it for hours like the awesome pink birds that inspired the stance.
This new way celebrities and Instagrammers all over the globe are posing elongates legs, especially if you cleverly cross over the perched knee towards the other, a la Kendall Jenner and Winnie Harlow.
Using something to lean against like a wall, windows or balcony, like Dua Lipa or Beyoncé. can make things easier. Incidentally, the Single Ladies singer, who like other celebrities has more than one picture featuring the bird theme, started experimenting with the trend last year.
The flamingo pose is actually used in yoga and has countless benefits, including improving focus, balance and concentration, and that’s probably why Eva Longoria gave her post a yoga-related twist.
Whether it’s her swimsuit, Hailey Beiber’s tie-dye mini dress or Gigi Hadid’s skimpy skirt, there’s proof the quirky pose is the perfect opportunity to show off that holiday tan, just another reason to give it a go.
