The La Costa Film Festival is around the corner.  How prepared are you for pictures on the red carpet?  You are either a pro at this point or you are like me…FIRST TIME on the red carpet.

Here are some secrets you should bring when you walk down the red carpet with us this October 13-16, 2016!

Now bear with me…some may be strange and some may not.

1)Use your tongue

Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth when smiling.  It helps stop the dreadful double chin!

2)Natural smile

Smiling can be tricky at times.  You smile too big or you don’t smile at all.  However, your natural smile is ore sincere.  In words of Tyra… “smize.”  Smile with your eyes.

3)Angle your face

If you don’t know your angle by now, get to it.  Angling your face is the best tip because you need to know your best side.  When angling remember to leave your chin forward and down.

4)Twist your body and position your arms

Twisting your body can give you an hour glass shape.  Switch it up sometimes.  Either place both hands on your hip or just one.

5)Cross your ankles or right foot forward

By closing your ankles, you are elongating your body.  When crossing your ankles leave your arms hanging down to allow the full effect of elongation.

6)Practice

         With anything practice makes perfect!

7)Most importantly HAVE FUN!

If I need to explain this…we might have a problem.
