1. Let your cheekbones pop

A chiselled jawline and prominent cheekbones can be achieved with this deceptively simple trick: When posing for a snap, say the word “prune”. The action automatically gives you that Blue Steel pucker. No one does this better than Kim Kardashian.

2. Do the knee pop

It’s simple but works wonders to enhance your curves and highlight those great heels or cute sneakers you’re wearing. Stand facing the camera directly, or tilt your body a little to offer a glimpse of your booty. All your weight should only be on one leg, leaving the other gracefully angled. Kristen Stewart nails it.

3. Show some leg

Angeline Jolie may be the intimidating captain of the leg-out team, but that shouldn’t stop you from being a member. Rest all your weight on one leg and slightly stick the other out, to give the illusion of longer pins. Kendall Jenner rocks this pose well.

4. Keep them crossed

No, not your eyes, but your ankles. The easiest way to keep your balance is to rest your weight on your front foot and push your hips out a little. This helps stretch you out as well, so you appear taller and more confident. Feel free to place one hand on your hip for a dash of insouciance, like Rachel McAdams.

5. Over to you

5. Over to you

Celebs love this pose, and they should! It’s a great way to show off a tight butt and a sexy back. Turn your body a little, then raise your shoulder and lower your chin so it’s slightly hidden. A come-hither gaze is the best complement. Vanessa Hudgens pulls this off like a pro.

6. Hands on hips

To shine, you want to project confidence and ease (not anger and annoyance), so go for bedroom eyes and a smouldering smile. Keep those shoulders squared and stand up straight too. Sofia Vergara totally aces this.

Everybody knows that great makeup and an enviable OOTD can only take you so far when it comes to snapping your money shot. If you don’t nail the right pose or expression, all the Insta filters in the world won’t be able to help your cause. Although it’s not easy to get it right every time, here are some tricks from Hollywood’s hottest that you can keep in mind to get that flattering shot. Ready, set, pose!
