Is Fish Gape the New Duck Face?

Say goodbye to the not-so-flattering puckered duck face, there’s a new selfie pose in town and it has just been coined the fish gape. According to Mimi Chatter, the fish gape is basically a halfway duck face. “The look involves just a touch of an eye squint, then the ever so slight parting of the lips. Almost like you’re about to say something but you stop pretty early into your thought.”

So why is the fish gape taking the Instagram selfie world by storm? Unlike the duck face pose, it’s more sultry and flattering and also slims the face. In case you need a better visual, here we have the duck face:

Taylor Swift Is Unrecognizable on Vogue Australia (Forum Buzz)

She already covers the November edition of US GQ looking as sultry as ever and now Taylor Swift makes the cover of Vogue Australia. After serving up Noami Watts last month, the magazine taps the American singer just in time, coinciding with her trip down under next month as part of Swift’s 1989 world tour. Photographed by Emma Summerton and with styling from Christine Centenera, Aussie Vogue gives Taylor an entirely new look, captured wearing a Schiaparelli creation and giving us Daria Werbowy vibes — the girl can model.

But were our forum members impressed with Vogue Australia’s best efforts? “She looks haggard here. Really bad,” slammed HeatherAnne the moment the cover dropped.

“For some reason she doesn’t look like herself. Maybe it’s the hair or Photoshop. But I do like the colors and the romantic feeling it has. Also, she is one of those celebrities who do not understand the meaning of overexposure. She’s everywhere all the time, she should go away for a while,” recommended KateTheGreatest.

Also acknowledging the evident airbrushing was KINGofVERSAILLES: “She reminds me of Daria Werbowy on the cover. The styling is romantic and the colors are gorgeous. Photoshop is maybe a bit overdone, though.”

J.Oliver agreed, echoing, “Taylor is always hit and miss. She looks stunning here, but TOO much Photoshop in the face.”

“Too much Photoshop on the face. Otherwise great,” said gazebo.

Miguelalmeida soon shed light on the cover, expressing, “WOW, the best cover from Taylor ever! This is the first cover of her that I’m really drawn too. Very romantic, charming and peaceful!”

Lara Bingle Finally Reveals Details of Her Secret Wedding to Sam Worthington

We’ve waited so long for the deets surrounding Lara Bingle and Sam Worthington‘s wedding that we began to question whether or not the nuptials actually happened. They most definitely did, and, at last, the Aussie model has revealed some very heartwarming details about the event, including the designer of her wedding dress.

Opening up to KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O this morning, the 28-year-old explained that she was six months pregnant for the “intimate” ceremony in Melbourne. “It was very intimate, we just popped into Melbourne where Sam’s family is from. It was just our families, less than 10 people,” she said.

“We wrote the whole celebration, we wrote all our vows. I was pregnant as well,” she continued, noting that it wasn’t easy to find a wedding dress for her growing baby bump.
