But now apparently it’s gone – and it’s been replaced by the “fish gape.”

Which looks more like this

As Cosmo explains, fish gape is where it’s at now:

Nowadays, if you scroll through your Instagram feed, there’s a new pose: It’s open-mouthed and slightly toothy. It’s the cooler, more flattering replacement for the duck face, and it’s called “fish gape.”

So, “open-mouthed and slightly toothy” seems to be fish gape’s main characteristic

The fish gape has become something of a phenomenon in the last couple of weeks. Sure, the pose has been around for ages – but it never had a name.

This poll on Twitter today asked the all important question
