Why female celebrities stand pigeon-toed

Have you noticed female Hollyweirdos and celebrities assuming a childlike pose, standing pigeon-toed?

Below is a sample.

These are the ages of the above celebrities:

  • Katie Holmes, actress and ex-wife of Tom Cruise, 40.
  • Amal Clooney, lawyer wife of actor George Clooney, 41
  • Cat Deely, actress-model, 42
  • Gwyneth Paltrow, actress, 47
  • Meghan Markle, former actress, now wife of Prince Harry, 38

Fiona Mcintosh reports for the Daily Mail:

Why, then, are increasing numbers of female celebrities adopting a rather bizarre pigeon-toed stance?

The trend was kick-started by Gwyneth Paltrow in 2010, and has since been adopted by a whole host of women — from Hollywood actress Katie Holmes to high-powered human rights barrister Amal Clooney….

They have all recently been pictured with their hands hanging limply, knees knocked and toes turned awkwardly inwards; in short, the sort of stance you’d expect a particularly shy child to adopt….

The reason for this is as depressing as it is fascinating: these A-list women have worked out that a pigeon-toed pose is a quick route to looking thinner, younger, sexier and even more approachable.

The pose brings your toes together, making your calf muscles look thinner and more defined, as well as creating or accentuating the appearance of a thigh gap…. As the cameras flash away, this pigeon-toe pose seems to say: ‘Gosh, look at little old me in the spotlight!’

As evolutionary anthropologist Dr Anna Machin explains, A-list celebrities need to appeal to two markets — men and, perhaps more importantly, other women.

The pigeon-toed stance sends powerful biological signals to both genders.

‘Celebrities are a commodity — they need other women to like them so they go to see their films,’ she says.

‘In reality they may be highly successful, powerful women, but with this pose they are trying to make themselves look more approachable. The awkward pose says: “I’m not an Alpha female, I’m just like you.” ’

Except, of course, surrounded as they are by agents, image builders and entire marketing teams, they are not remotely like us. So don’t imagine for a moment the pigeon-toed pose is natural — it takes a lot of practice to perfect faux-innocence when you’re a famous Hollywood diva. And while some men may find the stance inelegant, subconsciously it panders to the male ego.

Revolting!

I never noticed that, as I couldn’t care less about anything involving Hollywood or false idols. Interesting though. However, one thing I HAVE noticed, and would like to hear others’ opinions about, is the ridiculous proliferation of bearded or half-shaved men in commercials. The proportion is WAY out of whack with the actual ratio of bearded to non-bearded me in this country. I know there’s a reason. There are no coincidences. My best guess is that since seemingly every Middle Eastern man wears a beard, these commercials are actually subliminal messages to all Americans that Middle Eastern men are superior… Read more »

M*A*S*H normalized the unshaved look almost 50 years ago, which along with the tousled, greasy hair was associated back then with not bathing—meant to symbolize the technocratic elites’ contempt of the conventional, “bourgeois” behavior of middle class America. This inversion of conventional mores could have been contrasted with working class soldiers in Vietnam that’d been in the field for weeks shaving every day if they could, using tiny C-ration cans (to save on precious water) to rinse the razor and their faces. I’d guess the unshaved look is still meant to suggest flaunting convention and therefore supposedly being “authentic,” but… Read more »

And of course, these shy shrinking violets would not hesitate to speak against traditional American values. Aren’t they just so cute and adorable?

This is very interesting. I would have just assumed it’s because they have spent their entire lives with their legs spread out to earn cash and prizes.😇

Although there may be a more prosaic explanation (provided by an “evolutionary anthropologist”), I’m somewhat inclined to think that the pidgeon-toed stance, conveying vulnerability, along with the droopy eye/one dilated pupil displayed by so many celebrities, is evidence of a shattered and reconstituted persona due to trauma-based mind control

I shaved off my beard a couple years ago, & will never again have one, because of the proliferation of them everywhere I look. It is OBVIOUSLY more social engineering. I absolutely hate that grubby charcoal/five o’clock shadow look. It makes men look like they sleep under a bush & not use t.p.

I see it as a way to appear “sexy” and waif like. It does work on some of us men, but then the more aware of us know it’s just more mind control by the elites & Hollywood. The whole thing actually disgusts me.

I have never really paid any attention to the pigeon toed stance,however my lovely wife always likes to point out how many women celebutards stand with one leg crossed over in front of the other as if they have to pee really bad like right now .

“in short, the sort of stance you’d expect a particularly shy child to adopt….” There isn’t anything innocent or childish about them, specially Pagan Markle, as trashy as ever and her ugly skinny legs is a wonder can hold the weight of her boobs, smart move, from “tramp” up to the douchess of Success.

I don’t find that stance to be particularly attractive. How does being knock-kneed accentuate a thigh gap? What powerful biological signal are men supposed to receive?

Hmmm, wonder if Queen Mum, her court and cohorts have seen that pic? Pagan Markle is well suited for Globetrotter Harry.

I just assumed they were trying not to pee themselves.

Not mentioned are the very short skirts which are also age-inappropriate for these women. This is a revival of the mod style, including the knock-knees and childish posture, which emerged in the sixties. More unsettling was the modelling industry starting to use girls as young as 14 to model women’s fashion. An even more extreme form of this prepubescent image for women is also seen in Japanese “gyaru” style, which is making its way around the world in anime and pop music groups from Japan and Korea.
Creepy.

Could they be trying to appeal to the closet pedophiles out there,who want the young girls only without the legal risk?

That’s true, I’d forgotten the whole “Laugh in” show and Twiggy and Goldie who would wear those skirts and stand the exact same way!

That is rather fascinating, although I always thought it was beneath the dignity of grown women to act as thou they were a prepubescent child by using that pose.

Not to totally invalidate the reason given by the anthropologist in the article, but in my opinion there is way more going on here than he stated. For one I have noticed this trend now for at least 10 years or so in all the clothing catalogues that are sent by mail. This time line fits with all the light speed social perversions that the elite have been bringing in quickly since the turn of the century in 2000 molding everyone for their NWO. Most of these models are not high paid celebs trying to look average, nor do they… Read more »

I always thought they did it to keep their bearded clam from leaking Harvey Weinstein all over the stage.
