8 Instagram Poses That Will Help Unleash Your Inner Victoria’s Secret Model
Watch out, Sara Sampaio.
Sure, they might have a pretty good canvas to work with, but is there another reason why Victoria’s Secret models have Instagram accounts that we’d spend good money trying to replicate?
Forget the exotic locations and gym-honed bodies, because a large chunk of their ‘gram success comes down to a series of exceptional poses, a knowledge of the lighting that works for them, and years of experience in front of the lens.
The backwards lean
What better way to reiterate the fact that you’re on holiday than to lean backwards in a pool and snap an on-point selfie under the premise of talking about your horoscope? We’ve had a long hard think, and there literally isn’t one.
The sleeping goddess
Best recreated with the help of an infinity pool, an excellent background shot, an on-point bikini and the truly impressive ability of being able to arch your back like a 16-year-old Olympic gymnast.
The retro shot
If Instagram is all about achieving a ~ vibe~ then it stands to reason that a casual post of you leaning up against a vintage car will tick all the right boxes when it comes to creative success. Bonus points if you can catch the beginnings of a storm in the background.
The token dog picture
Because who hasn’t shamelessly used their family pet in order to share an image of their half-naked body with the entire world? Not us, that’s for sure.
The idealised reality shot
Keep things minimalistic by removing anything unnecessary to the final shot. For example, a picnic worthy of Instagram probably shouldn’t involve a bottle of Fanta and a tub of sausage rolls.
The red herring
Basically, show off how great you look in a barely-there bikini by pretending the focus of the shot is on your acrylic nails instead. Like this.
The yoga pose
Guaranteed to bring in the likes, put some of your best yoga moves on display for a shot that will have a good portion of your followers thinking you’re a legit Instagram influencer. Jokes on them.
The holiday boast
When all is said and done, one of the best things about being a Victoria’s Secret model is a free pass to the most beautiful locations on Earth. This might not work so well down Margate beach, but it’s definitely worth a shot.
P.S. We can only assume our VS angel wings are in the post as we speak.
