Step aside, duck face. There’s a new pose in town, and it’s taking over your favorite social media platforms. And even though we wish the simple smile was back in action, this new look goes by the name of “fish gape." Get ready, fellow selfie-takers, because this unique expression is bringing the world of selfies to a whole new level.

You’ve probably noticed this non-expressive pout maneuver on some of your favorite celebs (just take a look at our roundup below). If stars like Gigi Hadid, Zendaya Coleman, and Selena Gomez can ace this pose, so can you! Though, it's a bit harder to achieve than the duck face—it may take some practice to master. How can you mimic this new trend? Simply relax your jaw, pucker up a very tiny bit, show off those pearly whites (no tongue whatsoever) and squint like you’re a little confused. Voilà! You’ve mastered the fish gape and now you can post yourself posing all over your social media accounts to stay on-trend.
