You may have already written about this commercial, because it is so striking. It's the "Life takes Visa" spot with a young lady who starts off looking mousy and is led through the streets by a Broadway-style chorus singing "Downtown." She gets a makeover and is turned into a glamorous sophisticate, then shows her heartfelt appreciation for her credit card.

Origin

1930s: abbreviation.


Glamour photography is a genre of photography whereby the subjects, usually female, are portrayed in a romantic or sexually alluring way. The subjects may be fully clothed or semi-nude, but glamour photography stops short of deliberately arousing the viewer and being pornographic photography.

glam·our glam·or (glăm'ər) pronunciation
also glamour
n.
  1. An air of compelling charm, romance, and excitement, especially when delusively alluring.
  2. Archaic. A magic spell; enchantment.
[Scots, magic spell, alteration of GRAMMAR (from the association of learning with magic).]
USAGE NOTE Many words, such as honor, vapor, and labor, are usually spelled with an -or ending in American English but with an -our ending in British English. The preferred spelling of glamour, however, is -our, making it an exception to the usual American practice. The adjective is more often spelled glamorous in both American and British usage.
