15 Glamour Shots That Took It To The Next Level

Advertisement

For those who don’t remember, or maybe for those who are trying to forget, glamour shots were a photography trend from the 80’s and 90’s. With the help of professional photographers, people could take their own “model style” photos with special makeup, hairdos, and lighting. As the name suggests, it was was a way to look your most glamourous.

Or at least that was the idea. Because, as we should all know by now, any time a new fad comes along that helps people look cool, only about .001% of us are actually able to pull it off. The rest of us wind up being reminded of how uncool we really are.

Today we’re looking at some glamour shots that fell a bit short of the mark. Maybe it’s an egregious wardrobe choice. Maybe it’s a hairdo that’s bigger than any human person’s hair should be. Maybe it’s just how they project an overall feeling of discomfort.

I will say though, at least these folks were willing to put themselves out there!
