Didn’t have the heart to tell him and I didn’t want a scene at my Bar Mitzvah"-- Jay Godfrey “I burned a hole in the back of a family friend’s tuxedo jacket. Poor guys still doesn’t know.

Hamish Bowles has a certain "look" he works when photogs abound. (Check the Gallery to see what we’re talking about.) But what does it all mean? Chic consulted Patti Wood, “the Babe Ruth of body language experts," according to the Washington Post, and author of Success Signals: Understanding Body Language, for the skinny.

“The thumbs and fingers are pointing towards the crotch, which is a cue men give to show they are sexually available. I also call those ‘iconic poses,' because a lot of celebs use them to feel safe and comfortable. I’m getting that he’s doing this to appear strong and manly.” Thanks, Patti!

Chic loves learning so much that we've asked Norwegian designer Elise Øverland to translate our favorite phrases into her native tongue.

LESSON 1: Du kan aldri eie for mye svart.  (You can never own too much black.)

LESSON 2:  Vet du hvem som took Vogue mitt? (Do you know who took my Vogue?)

LESSON 3: Skal dette showet noen gang starte? (Is this show ever going to start?)

Use each phrase at least three times a day for the next week, and you'll be fluent in no time.
