For most women a police mug shot is the most humiliating photograph that will ever be taken.
In recent months, photographs of celebrities such as Reese Witherspoon and Lindsay Lohan have been forced to pose for the mandatory ‘booking in’ picture at the police station.
But these pictures of 10 women arrested in the U.S. have shown that some women have managed to maintain their looks in their mug shots.
Beauty Queen Lorena Taverna, who was Miss El Paso, Texas 2008, must have forgotten to Vaseline her teeth before she shot a close-lipped pout to the police camera after being arrested for shoplifting a $69 dress at Dillard’s department store.
Meanwhile, exotic dancer Toni Lee Hopkins does not seem at all intimidated in her mug shot after she was hauled in for violating statutes governing sexually oriented businesses in a Houston strip club crackdown.
