Watch: The A to Zs of Mono-Blinking From Joan Smalls and More

The wink is hard to master, though ultimately worth the battle. What could make a photo even more fun, sexy, charming, flirty, or personable than closing one eye really fast? With a little help from 26 supermodels who have graced the magazine’s pages over 33 years, this quick-paced video from fashion-forward i-D (newly teamed up with Vice) gives you a crash course in how to wink creatively — like using a ruler, or revealing your face with a shark sweatshirt or motorcycle helmet. 

Watch the video for both a visual history of how many luminaries have been featured in i-D — and to get mono-blinking lessons from the likes of Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls, Xiao Wen Ju, Lindsay Wixson, and special guest star Rick Owens.
