Like us, Cara is an expert squincher—and it's how her face always looks so perfect and mysterious in photos.

It's easy to look like Chrissy if you perfect your pursing-of-the-lips technique—which gives off that sultry-sweet vibe (in between a smile and a serious look). The best way to purse? Pretend like you're going to whistle, without opening your mouth!

3. Wear your hair to the side like Beyoncé.

Beyoncé way of looking great in photos? Wear your hair to one side. Why does this make you look better? Well, it frames your face with the hair to one side while also accenting your jawline for a flattering look.

4. Know your good side like Gigi Hadid.

You'll look perfect in photos if you follow Gigi Hadid's lead by identifying your "good side" and posing strictly to that side. FYI, the left side is usually your best side.

5. Go for a big smile like Reese Witherspoon.

If pursed lips like Chrissy Teigen's aren't your vibe, a big smile like Reese Witherspoon's here is sometimes better than a normal smile because it immediately shows you're happy and full of life in photos—rather than a regular smile, which could potentially come off as forced.

6. Put your hand on your hip like Kendall Jenner.

Balance your frame and give your look instant depth in a photo by putting your hand on your hip like Kendall Jenner.

7. Cross your ankles like Alexa Chung.

Crossing your legs at the ankle like Alexa Chung makes you appear slimmer in photos because you create more of a vertical line with your body straight up and down.
