According to The Guardian, the "baby giraffe" is the latest in Instagram "it" poses, thanks in part to Eva Chen who's kindly provided a tutorial on how to do the leg-lengthening pose on her Instagram stories. Just in case in 2018 wasn't enough of a jungle already, let's add some baby giraffes dressed in Revolve. {The Guardian
