ANTM’s Rob Evans on How to Take the Perfect Holiday Photo – Exclusive
If there’s anyone who knows how to give good face, it’s America’s Next Top Model judge Rob Evans. A male model himself, he’s perfected the art of taking the perfect photo. Now, just in time for the holidays when everyone’s snapping pics, he’s sharing his secrets exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment. Rule number one, according to Rob, avoid trying too hard. “Don’t overthink your pose or facial expression,” Rob advises. “You’ll end up looking too stiff. Have fun and just let your natural features shine through.” Yeah, yeah yeah, but we know what you’re really wondering: How do I keep from looking fat? Fortunately, Rob has the answer! “For all the ladies out there looking to create a slimmer illusion in a photograph, cross your legs when standing (one in front of the other) and a place one hand lightly on your hip. This automatically generates a more slender appearance.” And above all else, show teeth. “Smiling always adds a great touch to a photo,” Rob adds. “I think people focus too much on achieving that ‘sexy’ look and forget that the best look of all is a cheerful, enjoyable one, especially during the holidays.” And that’s not all! We’ve also got a bonus tip from style expert Lindsi Lane on how to dress for all those fun, holiday photos.
Says Lindsi: “The great thing about the holidays is you can play with textures and colors, but for the best possible photo it's best to opt for the solid looks. This helps you look great against any backdrop and mesh well with those you may be posing with. Doing this by no means gears you towards the boring lane — you can play with metallic, sequins, accessories and silhouettes, all of which add the perfect touch of pizzazz. There you have it folks! Eat, drink, be merry…and look great doing it!
