As Madonna famously sings, "Strike a pose, there's nothing to it." But it turns out, there is a lot more to it.

So, enter influencer Christine Buzan—a posing expert who shares her tips and tricks of the trade. And now, she's here to break down the red carpet trend from the 2023 Grammys on Feb. 5.

As she noticed, Taylor Swift, Camila Cabello, Keslea BalleriniOlivia Rodrigo and more of music's biggest stars modeled their glamorous looks by posing with their arms by their side. While the stance certainly commands attention, Christine noted that this position can also look very awkward in photos if it's not done properly. 

And this is where her expertise comes in. 

"Stand at a 45-degree angle," Christine began her Feb. 7 video. "Not only does posing at a 45-degree angle tend to be the most universally flattering way to pose for photos, but it makes your pose look less boxy and more streamlined."

She added, "Also, it immediately looks like you're posing instead of just standing there."

As for tip no. 2? She suggested hugging your sides, especially if you want to enhance your body shape.

"Instead of letting your arms hang, you're going to bend them slightly at your elbows and your wrists," Christine advised while showing her 1.1 million followers a shot of Bebe Rexha. "It will create space and bending at your wrist will allow you to hug the bottom half of your body, which will really accent your curves."

Her final tip might require some practice in the mirror, but once you nail it down, it will be a total game-changer.

"Stagger your shoulders," the TikToker explained. "Experiment with tilting one shoulder backward and lowering it. This will give the line of your pose an additional curve, so it has more movement."

As she pointed out, "It will make your pose look less stiff."
