RBF: an owner’s manual
The cultural saturation of RBF is not lost on those celebrities who supposedly have it. Whether they embrace it (with tongue in cheek) or reject it altogether, they deserve to have their say.
“Is there a filter on Instagram that fixes Resting Bitch Face? Asking for a friend.”
“I kind of created this character [for] the Spice Girls. I didn’t smile very much; it was quite pouty… I look at the pictures and think, ‘Oh wow, you look so grumpy.’ The ironic thing is that I’m actually not. I have a very British, tongue-in-cheek sense of humour.”
“[RBF] basically means that if you’re caught off guard and aren’t smiling, you look like a giant bitch. Apparently that’s how I come across. I’m really happy [in reality]; my life’s good. My husband has the exact opposite – Happy Resting Face – which is kind of annoying.”
“The whole smiling thing is weird because I actually smile a lot. I literally want to be like, ‘Dude, you would think I was cool if you got to know me.’”
We can’t talk about RBF without mentioning Kanye West. He has long been the only male we associate with the term. Not even marrying the love of his life Kim Kardashian and having two children, North and Saint, can keep him from looking so crabby.
Durban-born Leigh Schubert is a designer with a keen eye for trends, so it’s only fitting that she created a bold ensemble based on Rose’s trendy new ice tea.
“When I think of Rose’s, I think of fun and happy times spent with family, and I wanted to make a vibrant two-piece look to reflect that feeling. Roses’s Passion Fruit Flavoured Ice Tea has a fresh and tantalising taste, so I designed an energetic and modern outfit that’s also elegant and layered, just like the flavours present in the drink.”
