The Squint and Pout

What is it with starlets, celebs and celebs by default thinking that pouting or squinting at the camera is attractive and equals a pose?

Exhibit A. Melania "Mrs. The Donald" Trump. Every picture I see of her she looks like she's either forgotten to put in her contacts, is bravely suffering through an impacted tooth or has a case of the vapors (also known as gas). Is she missing teeth? Is that why The Donald married her? Why doesn't she open her eyes and smile?

Exhibit B. Keira Knightley. I like the tiny Knightley. I thought she did an admirable job in Pride & Prejudice, and I am heavily biased in Jennifer Ehle's favor for that role. Do I think Knightley deserved an Oscar nom? No, but that's another story. I also liked her in Love, Actually. She's a pretty girl so why is she so hesitant to smile? She has a cute boyfriend so why is she always pouting? And why doesn't someone give her a sandwich?
