a few more fashion celebs that you can review.
The term glamour
was originally meant to be; a spell
cast over someone, particularly to change how things appeared
to them. The primary modern meaning of the word relates to fascination,
charisma, beauty, or attraction. Celebrities
are often referenced as glamorous. In addition to celebs
being glamorous, regular every day people, or their lifestyles,
can be described as glamorous. Although
many words which end in "our"
in British English are spelled with "or"
in American English, "glamour" is an exception with
the "u" usually being retained. This
may be due to its original being Scottish rather than French
or Latin. The alternative spelling "glamour"
is sometimes used in American English, but not as frequently.
Also, Glamour in modern day is occasionally
abbreviated as simply Glam.
