Word Up: Glam


The origin of the word glamour is the ability to cast a spell on someone to change their looks. In worldly terms glamour used to mean you had class and alot of money. You could roll out of bed like everyone else but show up to the Golden Globes looking like you've never engaged in unsightly behaviors that are a daily occurance for the public. Since T. Rex and The Rolling Stones put on they're make-up and furs with denim the line ( and definition) has been blurred. Smearing your eyes in kohl eye shadow and partying in a faded band tee, ripped jeans and $200 boots with a scarf around your neck has been discribed as glamour's unrefined baby sister: dirty glam. Cigarettes, fabulous clothes and wearing sunglasses at night are a few of her signatures. All you have to do to be glamourous in the 21st Century is party like a rockstar. Or throw on some glitter and furs and at least look like you do.
