Fashion Flashback: The Glamor Shot

Take a look back at the greatest photo trend of all time.

By Eden Dawn April 16, 2012


Circa 1992 every locker in my junior high hallway seemed to have a glamor shot hanging inside. They all looked nearly identical for ages 8 to 80. Each subject was bathed in fuzzy (forgiving) lighting, massive curly hair was never ending, and on top was a random hat askew. Basically, they were amazing.

After stumbling upon blog Buzzfeed’s tips for the ultimate glamor shot (including wearing gloves, feathers and using props), I felt super nostalgic for the slightly scandalous photos of yesteryear. Assuming you feel the same, take a look through forty of the best vintage glamor shots Google has to offer.

Be prepared to want a head to toe makeover immediately after.
