I don't know about you, but here in podunkville, we don't have a lot of models running around on the street. But it did get me thinking about some things; one of them being celebrities on the red carpet. I'll admit that a seriously guilty pleasure for me is taking a peek at people.com every single morning to see which celebs are in rehab, which ones got divorced and which ones got knocked up. I'm a sucker for a good knocked up celebrity story. But what really gets me are the red carpet poses. I can't help but look at them and laugh and wonder who in the world made these rules and told all these girls that this is what you need to do to look beautiful for an audience.
Yeah- I never strike a pose with my arm cocked up like that so the world can see my armpit stubble. And what about the legs? Who decided that you need to cross your legs to look good? It just looks like an accident waiting to happen to me. Those skinny ankles look like they are just about to snap in half.
And one more thing... (I think that drunk college girls are starting this one.) I'm also tired of the kissy, fish face pictures. Yeah- I get that it makes you look like you have cheekbones, but you also look like an idiot.
Wanna know how real friends take pictures? They drop the kissy face, they throw their arms around each other and smile. And they do it because they love each other- not because they feel the need to look like models.
Ahhh... I love my friends. Lord help us the day a model wants to join the group.
