A few weeks back Lori over @ Family Trees May Contain Nuts (no kidding!) had the bright idea of throwing a Retro Glamor Shots partay!
You remember those photos you had done 20 years ago where they did your hair and makeup? We would have them at our houses and the crew of photographer, hairdresser and make up artist would come and we would have a party. Food, wine, friends and some amazing transformations. An assembly line of women in various stages of super modeldom.Don't be shy, share these great photos with all of us. Some will be funny and some will be awesome but hey they are all us and we are always a work in progress.
I never went to one of those parties ~ but once upon a time, back in the early nineties it must have been ~ whilst on holiday in the States ~ in a mall somewhere ~ I was lured into a photographer's studio and persuaded by Mr B to have a Glamour Shots Makeover!
My hair was artfully teased into a bouffant style, not easy to do when you wear it as short as I have always done.
The make up artist did a super job of revealing hidden cheek bones and accentuating my eyes.
"Backstage " at the photographer's I was encouraged to play in the "dressing up box" and find accessories to accentuate the look.
By the way what about those eye glasses? Aren't they huge?
I actually owned those and several others very similar in style.
I remember a red pair that I was quite taken with, very Sally Jessy Raphael!
I still think these earrings are amazing!
The pearls made me look like Mrs Thatcher, but the cleavage was all mine.
Although we did create some other "looks" during the session, including a really sassy rock chic clad in denim, and a diva complete with bright pink feather boa, I have only been able to find these three shots to share today.
Thanks to Lori for the nostalgia trip and for hosting this fun Retro Glamour Shots Party.
