- BECOME AN ENTITY ADDICT
Not everyone gets to walk the red carpet like the stars at the Golden Globes but in this age of selfies and social media posts everyone needs to know how to look good in pictures.
That’s where posture coach Dr. Paul Drew comes in. The author of “Red Carpet Posture,” he is an expert on how to stand perfectly to show off your looks and outfit to best effect.
Celebrities preparing to rock the red carpet at Sunday’s Globes wrestle with the dilemma of how best to pose. Get it wrong and they could be haunted by pictures that stay on the internet forever.
But get it right and you can be hailed as a style goddess.
As ENTITY’s red carpet posture expert, Dr. Paul tells us which stars nominated for Golden Globes get it right and and which ones get it wrong. Plus, he provides tips you can follow for perfect posture.
Nicole Kidman (“Lion”): “Kidman needs to stand up straighter with shoulders down and back.”
Ruth Negga (“Loving”): “She needs to stop looking like she is about to tip over.”
Keri Russell (“The Americans”): “She has to stop rolling the shoulders forward.”
Viola Davis (“Fences”): “Davis stays level with her body.”
Jessica Chastain (“Miss Sloane”): “Chastain gives confidence with head up and over shoulders.”
Amy Adams (“Arrival”): “She always looks square and focused to the cameras.”
1. Keep your shoulders down and back. Nothing looks worse than someone wearing a great red carpet dress, but having forward or slouchy shoulders that makes any dress look bad. Remember, good red carpet posture can make any dress look better.
2. Keep your stomach up and in towards the spine. Don’t have a poochy tummy sticking out; otherwise, people will think you are getting fatter.
3. Don’t be twisted or tilted. Don’t be a Picasso; be square and direct with those flashing cameras and adoring fans.
4. Keep your head up and chin in. Don’t let your head get in front of your shoulders. Show confidence by holding your head high.
5. Walk a straight line on the red carpet. You want to look as if you own the red carpet and you are in control.
6. Turn gracefully and upright. When you turn to face someone or the cameras, turn the body together easily. Don’t get twisted in which you rapidly turn the upper torso before you turn the legs. Maintain level shoulders as you make the turn
7. Walk the red carpet with an even step and stride length. Don’t let one foot take a bigger step than the other.
