4. Squinting Woman

The story behind the "squinting girl" meme is actually pretty funny. It all happened when Kalin Elisabeth was squatting and taking photos at a baby shower. Unbeknownst to her, a friend snapped a candid of her getting up and clutching her knees, which were not too happy. And voilà — a meme is born. 

What you need: A black tank top, black ripped jeans, pink blazer, and pink shades. Oh, and don't forget to squint.
