Fashion tends to take itself super seriously, but every so often, you’ll open a glossy and think, “WTF?” Maybe it was a gangly model channeling her inner carnie and contorting her limbs like a human pretzel. Or maybe a horrifyingly grotesque Dolce & Gabbana-endorsed orgy.

Of course, in my opinion, nothing beats the oft-imitated Miley Cyrus “kissy face” on the ridiculous meter, but whilst on the the hunt for more artistic fare we stumbled across Ridiculous Pose’s dedicated catalogue of model fails and couldn’t help but share.
