Are you still making duck faces? OMG. Stop now, before someone sees you. Or worse, before you post a selfie and the ENTIRE WORLD sees it.

Apparently there's a new trend that all the celebs are obsessed with. And it's not duck related. It's named the wildly unsexy - wait for it - "fish gape." According to Marie Claire, it is achieved by squinching the eyes (essentially smizing), parting the lips and angling the chin slightly down.

If you basically look like a goldfish when you do it, then you are doing it correctly.

In addition to Cara Delevingne taking a fish-gape selfie on the red carpet, here are some other celebs really giving the duck face a run for its money.

J.Lo's fish gape is - like everything she does - fierce AF.
And Joan Smalls killing it.

The only problem is these ladies are all professional photo subjects. Our fish gape looks more like we're catching flies.

::Sigh:: Remember when people actually just said "Cheese?" and smiled for pictures?
