Yeah, two out of five "authentic" pictures showcased have almost the same weird leg-up pose that definitely didn't happen by accident.

But I guess authentic is always appreciated, but not something you have free access to if posing for pictures is your job.

Not that I want to encourage the sort of behavior described in the article, but the leg-up bit may just be a case of convergent evolution. The ladies pictures are trying to show off their shoes, which doesn't work well without a leg up if you're taking a selfie.
