After years of flipping through the pages of Vogue, have you noticed that the models in the fashion spreads strike the same poses—over and over and over again? Well, FashionIndie's Style and Culture Editor Lester Brathwaite noticed. And in a two-part series on FashionIndie, he breaks down the poses and demonstrates how to replicate them in, you know, your normal everyday life... like this one, which Brathwaite calls The Pensive Jut.
