Paparazzi are a universally hated, yet somewhat integral part of modern celebrity culture. The vast majority of their time is spent harassing Hollywood actors and musicians, and while celebrities undoubtedly deserve privacy, paparazzi photos grant us common folk a little bit of insight into the lives of the world’s elite.

There’s one genre of paparazzi photo that stands out above the rest, though: airport fashion.
