9 Reasons Blake Lively Always Looks Stunning in Photos
The camera loves Blake Lively, and it's easy to argue that some people were just born being photogenic. We fully acknowledge that she's tall, stunning, and regularly decked out in Chanel and Dior, but she has several photogenic tricks up her sleeve as well. After a decade spent on red carpets and being closely followed by paparazzi, she's undoubtedly had plenty of time to hone her skills.
The reason Lively is a great celeb to study is this: She's adept at both standing still and posing, as well as at taking candid shots. In the age of Instagram, you're likely to encounter both—even without red carpets and paparazzi—so keep scrolling to take a cue from Lively's playbook (and shop a photogenic clothing item she seems to swear by).

Eva Chen coined this photogenic stance baby giraffe pose. "I stick my bum out and tilt one leg forward and the other leg back," Chen explains. "Like I'm a baby giraffe walking." Lively seems to be on the same page.

Pockets are an easy way to look instantly more natural in a photo, as they give you something to do with your hands (they can be quite awkward, can't they?). We couldn't help but notice that Lively frequently wears pocketed pieces. Speaking of which, we found a few amazing ones below.
