As celebrity mug shots go, celebrity chef Cat Cora's gets points for presentation. Of course, she took it 11 days after her arrest for DUI.

Appearing serene and well-coiffed, the Around the World In 80 Plates star had to return to the Santa Barbara police station for a makeup photo because one was never taken after she rear-ended a vehicle June 17 after leaving a tavern, police say.

Cora, 45, is to be arraigned July 26 on one count of DUI and one count of driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher. She registered twice the legal limit on a breath test, police say.

"I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable," she said in a statement. "I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions. This will never happen again."
