Women in Archery during Early 21st Century

In recent years archery has become increasingly popular - and nowhere is this rise more noticeable than the number of female celebrities being shown in films, music videos, photography doing archery - often just posing with the bow and not actually learning archery.

Below is a collection of female celebrities from the last 15 years or so doing archery - or at least posing with a bow and arrow. It is a long list too. Everyone from actresses Anne Hathaway and Keira Knightley to fashion supermodels like Daria Werbowy and musicians like Ke$ha.

To Anne Hathaway's credit she at least got an archery lesson and presumably learned something. Many of the photos of fashion models and actresses below clearly show a complete lack of formal training in archery. You can usually tell easily by their form and stance whether they have had any lessons or not.

To be fair, if we found a similar number of photographs of male actors, male fashion models and male musicians doing archery, they would likely look equally inept.
