Celebrity Chef Cat Cora's Glamorous Mugshot

Most mug shots are far from flattering. So, why does celebrity chef Cat Cora's mug shot look so good? INSIDE EDITION has the story.

Mugshots aren't supposed to look this glamorous.

It's celebrity chef Cat Cora, following her arrest for DUI.

It turns out, police in Santa Barbara let Cora come back 11 days after her arrest to pose for her mugshot. She had her hair and makeup done for the occasion.

Cora rear-ended another vehicle and failed a breathalyzer test.

"I am ok. I'm hanging in there," said Cora.

 A star on Iron Chef America and Around the World in 80 Plates, she is is due in court later this month.

She said in a statement: "I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening."
