1: a magic spell (the girls appeared to be under a glamour — Llewelyn Powys)
2: an exciting and often illusory and romantic attractiveness (the glamour of Hollywood); especially: alluring or fascinating attraction —often used attributively (glamour stock) (glamour girls) (whooping cranes and … other glamour birds — R. T. Peterson)
It's hard to describe, you'll have to see for yourself. But whatever that indescribable definition of 'glamour' is to you, it's there, at this exhibit, at the extraordinarily renovated V&A Fashion Galleries, and their new exhibit, Ballgowns: British Glamour since 1950.
You come in downstairs, where the permanent - yet new - exhibit resides. And that alone feels pretty darn glamorous. And you think, great. But then.. there are these stairs.. and you're up in what feels like heaven, the dome of the V&A. The gowns for the ball, and these giant balls. And I'm not sure who the woman in the top shot is - in this season's leopard print, lizard - but I'm guessing she was one of the curators, either Oriole Curren or Sonnet Stanfill - both absolutely glamorous names. Whoever she is, she was simply glowing with glamour.
