The Supermodel Guide To Selfie Poses

When Jourdan Dunn revealed her no-fail selfie strategy, we were struck by how many times we'd seen her do that exact same pose on her Insta. But, Dunn's far from the only one. Turns out, despite their much-hyped flair for versatility, models tend to give more or less the same face when it's selfie time. Better to get the people double-tapping with a look that works, right?
We took to six of our favorite models' Instagrams to reveal exactly what kind of face they serve constantly — and we'll break down how to get the look yourself. Your guide to Karlie's sass, Joan's hauteur, and Cara's kookiness, straight ahead.

Karlie Kloss: The Boomerang Brow
Step one: Purse lips.
Step two: Smile wryly, as if all that you behold is beneath you (because it is, sort of).
Step three: Arch your brows into perfect, upside-down V's.

Making Taylor Swift look plain in comparison: optional.

Jourdan Dunn: The Headache
Step one: Tilt head to side.
Step two: Touch hand alluringly to your head (ouch!) or neck (so tense!).
Step three: Usually be wearing a sports bra. All Dunn!

Gisele Bündchen: The Bushy-Tailed Smize
Step one: Scrunch your eyes shut.
Step two: Open them wide, then smile slightly with your mouth closed, like you're gazing at your beloved over a candle-lit dinner.

Oh wait, we forgot, there's a step zero: Be the world's most symmetrical woman.

Cara Delevingne: The Wonky Eye
While the Miley Tongue and Wavy Tongue were in close competition, it is the Wonky Eye pose that we most associate with Cara. To do: Cross just one of your eyes, form mouth into ironic duck lips, or a faux-surprised gasp. Voilà: Now you, too, look like a supermodel!

Miranda Kerr: The Doll Face
Step one: Tilt chin down, smile sweetly.
Step two: Hold phone at an extreme overhead angle. Think MySpace.
Step three (optional): Surround yourself with several larger, taller people so you look extra tiny and adorable!

Joan Smalls: The Bewildered Babe
This one's counterintuitive, but stick with us: You are going for the absence of facial expression here.

Step one: Clear your mind.
Step two: Let your lips fall slack, your mouth slightly open (bonus: this will cut your cheekbones).
Step three: Hold the camera below you. You are superior to all other beings.
Step four: Gaze absently at, or just to the side of, the camera lens. Look like a befuddled alien. These mere mortals, they do not compute.
