Red-Carpet Red Flags: How Not to Pose at the Oscars
From the "Kiss of Death" to the "Flapper," The Hollywood Reporter names the top 5 red carpet no-nos when it comes to striking a pose.
THE PEACE OUT
Cyrus goes for this one, which fits with her "Party in the U.S.A." songbook. Surely there's a better way to show your commitment to world peace.
THE JESSICA RABBIT
Note to Angelina: Roger Rabbit's vampy, slit-up-to-there-wearing better half is merely a cartoon, and she should only be channeled on Halloween.
Katy Perry is a fan of this saccharine pose that tries -- too hard -- to convey bubbliness. It's cute for a second, then the novelty wanes.
THE KISS OF DEATH
Lindsay Lohan made this popular around Mean Girls, and everyone knows how that turned out. Recent offenders: Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.
THE PIGEON TOE
A good choice -- if an actress actually wants her hips to look bigger. Word of advice: Pretend you're doing Pilates, and keep those toes straight.
