Is this the extreme of forward shoulder or is it just positioning?

Isn't it funny how you look at people and how their clothes fit? I never did that before I started sewing a couple years ago.

My theory is that models do these odd postures to give some impression of body shape, since they have removed theirs by being so skinny. The photographer is naturally looking for some light and shade, which for most of us is created by natural curves.

Ouch, that actually looks painful
I was watching Antiques Roadshow last night and the camera was aimed on the backside of a woman. Her pants were doing a major wedgie and the inseams were crawling where no inseam should go I also find myself watching news anchors. Sometimes the men are a real hoot. I ask my husband..."who dressed that man"!??? They will mix stripes and checks with almost anything. I'll never forget when my oldest son started picking out his clothes to wear for the day(3 or 4 years old)...one day he came out with a red shirt and red pants..."but Mama, it's red".

I can't watch SportsCenter. I have no idea who dresses the football commentators, but they clearly have no clue about what colors and patterns go together. While DH is listening to blah blah football talk, I'm utterly distracted by how that pocket square doesn't go with the tie or the shirt and how the overall color just washes out the commentator. Silly what our eyes get trained to watch!

The best project you could be working on is the one that's on the table right now.

And what about the women on the Weather Channel? I just want to tell them, wear the next size up ~ it won't look like you are bursting the seams...

The model looks like a lovely young woman with a perfectly normal body. I think the "extreme forward shoulder" is an illusion created by the photographer's lighting and posing directions.

Notice that the model's upper arm is extended backward, her elbow bent and her wrist extended upward. Try doing that yourself, and you'll see it's not a normal or comfortable position for anyone to hold. You'll also notice that your shoulder juts forward, regardless of how much padding you have.

Don Cherry Fashion

I think Don Cherry has the biggest fashion statement of a sports commentator.

The jackets may be wild, but they do fit well.
