Read ahead for her thoughts on the mug shots of Lohan, Mischa Barton, Chace Crawford, and others, and pick up a few practical tips for taking either a great mug shot (God forbid) of your own one day, or just a great badly lit, close-up head shot at any old party. Your Twitpics will never be the same!
