Arnette’s Notorious event last night brought to my attention many things – perhaps one that I have been pondering the most is the illusive quest to be photogenic. The media frenzy that it was has seen many pictures circulating Sweaty Betty Headquarters – some good and others ‘banish to the trash, never to be seen again’ not so good.
So how does one achieve the perfect photo pose? Many of the Betties take different approaches to achieve the most flattering shot, note picture reference above. Angle head down with eyes up to create the ‘doe eye’ look? Situate yourself in the middle so as to have ‘bat wing’s’ disguised by those around you? Place something oversize in front of you to distract attention from other parts?
One trick that has particularly caught my eye is the ‘how to disguise a broken nail move,’ to anyone not in the know this stance looks like any run of the mill gangster symbol – and as we were in the presence of one of the worlds most ‘notorious’ rap artist, Snoop Dogg, who were we to question? It was only this morning when reveling in the pictures Sarah was questioned as to her gang affiliation …. Not to worry, there is none, she had a broken nail but was tying to hide it!
Mission accomplished I say – and note to self to pull this one out in the future.
