Glamour originally was a term applied to a magical-occult spell that was cast on somebody to make them see something the spell-caster wished them to see, when in fact it was not what it seemed to be. In the late 19th century terminology, a non-magical item used to help create a more attractive appearance gradually became known as 'a glamour'. Today, glamour is the impression of attraction or fascination that a particularly luxurious or elegant appearance creates, an impression which is better than the reality. Typically, a person, event, location, technology, or product such as a piece of clothing can be glamorous or add glamour.

Virginia Postrel says that for glamour to be successful nearly always requires sprezzatura - 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. Glamorous things are neither opaque, hiding all, nor transparent showing everything, but translucent, favourably showing things.

The early Hollywood star system in particular specialised in Hollywood glamour where they systematically glamorised their actors and actresses.

Glamour can be confused with a style, which is adherence to a particular school of fashion, or intrinsic beauty; whereas glamour can be external and deliberate.
"Glamour" originally referred to be a magic spell, an illusion cast by Gypsies and witches.

Late in the 19th century the common meaning shifted to being applied to ordinary objects and jewellery without connotations of supernatural, merely upon the effect that it has on appearance. This is a sense used in this article and to some extent is the way that it was used by the early Hollywood system.

In modern usage glamour is often confused with style or beauty; but they may be considered to be distinct, although glamour may give the appearance of beauty or present as a personal style.

Artist Vlad Tasoff is a master at blending the worlds of the fantastical and the real to create dynamic paintings that celebrate the essence of human spirit. His works offer a unique brand of organic surrealism charged with delicate intimations, traces and shadows. Overlapping, semi-translucent veils of rich, frosted pastel figuration sketch out the female body in synthesis with the vegetal and geographic features of mysterious terrain. Adopting the characteristically surrealist trope of masquerade as metaphor, Tasoff’ s dynamic use of hybrid female forms greet the viewer during precious instants of sensual slumber and spiritual discovery. Specific archetypes such as angels, enchantress and deities appear to fise seamlessly into their surroundings. Tropical oases, glacial slopes and dewy meadows emerge amidst illusions to Western and Oriental culture, fashioning mystical landscapes ripe with the beguiling fruit of forms, symbols and signs…
