Vogueing

verb; derivation
To act as though on the cover of a magazine. Vogueing is an interesting term because the term “vogue” in this case refers to the popular fashion magazine rather than the adjective vogue “in fashion.” This is possibly a form of metonymy because the word Vogue refers to not only the magazine, but also the aura of the magazine.
 
“She was vogueing in all of her profile pictures.”
Etymology : formed from adding derivational affix “–ing” to “Vogue,” where it refers to the name of a popular fashion magazine
