There’s no denying that Margot Robbie has been killing awards season this year. From her vintage Barbie-inspired looks to her nominations in almost every major category (no, we don’t want to discuss the Oscars). But what isn’t being talked about enough is how she’s nailed the perfect pose on the red carpet. As a non-celeb, I have no experience with sashaying down a carpet, but I know a good pose when I see one and will definitely be taking notes for Instagram. The Barbie star has managed to ditch the Y2K-favorite teapot pose for something much more flattering: the raptor.
If you aren’t familiar, the raptor pose, or what PureWow’s beauty director, Jenny Jin describes as “the teapot's cousin” is a variation of the teapot. But instead of placing the tired hand-on-your-hip and forcing a big, cheesy smile, you relax your shoulders and rest your arms at your sides to create the illusion of a longer silhouette. Robbie also pushes her shoulders back and flattens her hands at her hips, honestly replicating a Barbie. See the signature pose in action below.
