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:
