Glamour is the impression of attraction or fascination that a particularly luxurious or elegant appearance creates, an impression which intensifies reality. Typically, a person, event, location, technology, or product such as a piece of clothing can be glamorous or add glamour. “Glamour” originally referred to a magic spell, an illusion said to be cast by witches.[

For glamour to be successful it nearly always requires an appearance of effortlessness, and to appear distant transcending the everyday, to be slightly mysterious and somewhat idealised, but not to the extent it is no longer possible to identify with the person. The early Hollywood star system in particular specialised in Hollywood Glamour where they systematically glamorised their actors and actresses.

The “Golden Age” of Hollywood Glamour was the 1930s and 1940s, following the depression and its aftermath. Glamour is the result of chiaroscuro, the play of light on the landscape of the face, the use of the surroundings through the composition, through the shaft of the hair and creating mysterious shadows in the eyes.

Hollywood studios presented their female stars in designer gowns and exquisite jewelry, both on screen and in carefully orchestrated occasions for publicity. Joan Crawford is quoted to have said, “I never go outside unless I look like Joan Crawford the movie star. My favourite has to be Marilyn Munro the epitome of Glamour and Glitz.
