These Vintage Mugshots Prove No One Is Glamorous Anymore

Nowadays, when people get arrested, it’s usually for bath salts. Rather, bath salts-induced violence. As much as TheGloss‘ editors live for bath salts stories, we have to say that the stricken, overwhelmed mugshots have become a little monotonous. Anyway, Least Wanted uncovered a trove of delightful retro mugshots and–surprise!–everyone is dressed to the nines. They may not be eating people or running from electricity, but they all have their hair just so.

    1, 4 and 5 are total babes (5 looks like she’s on drugs though)

    The second one has a serious Martha Plimpton thing going on. Also, I would gladly watch a movie about/starring #5.

    People just used to dress better. All the time. I remember when white gloves were standard.
