maybe... but such an interpretation of her pose is not intuitive. At least I don't get such a feeling. the problem with drawing cartoon characters is that sometimes poses look completely off even though they are "correct"
To put it simply - when I look at this picture, the most noticeable thing about Rarity is the feeling that her neck is too short.
True, that's what I thought at first. When drawing things like an arm reaching for the "camera", the arm's base looks thinner and the hand looks bigger than the body.
In this case, the head is sticking towards the "camera", making the neck look shorter and the head bigger than the body. It looks strange, but I think you may be missing something. The neck isn't the most noticeable thing here, it's the color of Rarity's mane. It's ocean blue, not royal purple.
