Critic Dorothy Parker once said that “Men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses”. But, today things have changed a lot. Some specced celebrities like Julia Roberts, Raven Simone, Alicia Keys, Oprah Winfrey, Demi Moore have changed the views towards the eye gears of all the people around. Even the male celebrities are also wearing designer eyeglasses these days. Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, Drew Carey, Richard Gere, Leonardo Di Caprio, Kevin Costner and many more male celebs are often seen wearing their eyeglasses even in movies. Elton John’s glasses have become the part of his legendary presence in the music industry now. Advancements in the field of ophthalmic treatments can easily sort their minor eye problems. But, surprisingly these starts are still opting to wear these glasses.
Have you thought about the celeb politicians around wearing glasses? Well, you must admit the immense popularity and admiration for fashionable presence of Sarah Palin. Her fashionable eyeglasses have become one major part of her public identity. Kazuo Kawasaki designed her sunglasses, which became a best seller in the retail market. She kept this on throughout the 2008 presidential campaign. Some celebs already have their signature eye-wears in the fashion stores around. Sophia Loren, Hillary Duff and Lauren Hutton have launched their designer products in the market. Whereas Donald Trump has aimed the businessmen with his sophisticated frame design of eyeglasses.
Even in the last decade, eyeglasses were the sole property of the nerds and geeks. As a result, wearing cheap eyeglasses was taken as unfashionable and unappetizing. But when some glass wearing nerds became celebs, POVs changed very fast. Say the two tech geniuses – Bill Gates and Steve Jobs; both of them wear/wore glasses. Interestingly, Steve had a special eyewear designed in the shape of Apple logo. Now, wearing eyeglasses have become an exclusive fashion trend, which has given birth to some wonderful eyewear brands like Armani, Ray Ban, Gucci.
Cost of the celebrity eyeglasses vary within a wide range. Prices are variables because the materials used in framing can be Gold, Diamond, Crystals or even Titanium. So you have to find out what fits your budget and personality while picking up a model you saw on your favorite celeb. The eyewear you can find belongs to different brands such as – Chanel, Cartier, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein and many more.
Maybe what Dorothy Parker said about the glasses was correct. But today, the trendsetting has changed in a way that makes the eye wears iconic for the celebrities around the world.
