Not all mugshots are Nick Nolte disasters or Trinity, Texas entertainment.

Some women go for the glamor look.

Like Siniad Vanessa Gonzalez, charged with being the getaway driver for a home invasion. The three men involved in the caper are on the run, but the victim gave police a description of the BMW Gonzalez was driving and she was nabbed.

A BMW as the getaway car: Classy.

We're not sure what Gonzalez is wearing here -- a silky stole or a Walmart hoodie -- but her baleful gaze and delicate coiffe all say "It is not here I should be -- it is behind the wheel of a sleek BMW, thumbing my nose at the law."

Gonzalez, 21, has been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

Police have released composite drawings of the three men involved in the incident.

Here's HPD's description of what happened in the 1700 block of Sandy Trail Court about 1 a.m. February 26:

Four unknown male suspects approached the victim at his front door and forced him inside the residence. They assaulted him with a gun and bound his wife and two grandchildren. The victim said the suspects remained inside the home for about two hours, demanding money from a safe. The victim advised he did not have a safe nor money they were demanding. The suspects ransacked the residence and stole numerous items, including an iPad, iPhone and a gun before fleeing the scene.

Well, maybe she doesn't look so glamorous after all.
