What’s A ‘Plandid’ & How Celebs Are Using It To Up Their Insta Game

There is always a new trend brewing in the world of Instagram, aimed at keeping our pictures looking flawless and getting the triple-digit likes rolling in. The recent Instagram trend all over our feed has been monikered the “plandid”. The term basically means - a planned candid, where your posing appears completely natural. You look like you are unaware of being clicked. The trick is to find the right spot (extra likes for a scenic view) along with the perfect lighting and a knockout outfit. The plandid trend has just one rule - to not look in the camera.

Celebrities such as Malaika Arora Khan, Deepika Padukone and Karishma Kapoor are already cheating their way into this super hot trend. The result? An impressive set of gorgeous pictures with chic outfits that have left us green with envy and on the look-out for a personal photographer. See for yourself here:
