Move over "Barbie Feet" and "The Flamingo", there’s a new Instagram pose that all the cool girls are obsessed with. If you’ve seen the Princess Diaries, Mia Thermopolis (played by Anne Hathaway) had this weird concept that her foot would “pop-up” once she’s experienced true love’s kiss. The movie ends with her sharing that kiss with her bestfriend’s brother Michael in the Genovian diplomatic residence, and her foot pops up and accidentally turns the garden lights on.
That 90-degree leg position has suddenly become every influencer’s go-to pose, likely because of its cheekiness and undeniably youthful feel. It also makes your legs appear longer and slimmer, while showing off your waist if you’re wearing a high-waisted jean or skirt. See the "Foot Pop" pose in action below and make sure to cop it for your next Instagram OOTD.
All hands up! Emma Chamberlain’s casual denim 'fit gets a fun upgrade thanks to the Foot Pop. She’s also shown off the pose from the front, and we think it looks equally as cool.
