May 3, 2007 Ė Have models suddenly become myopic, or are glasses the new accessory du jour? Yigal AzrouŽl opened the season with bespectacled lovelies in luxe boy-for-girl basics. "Our focus was on smart, sexy women," says stylist Kate Youngówho's not averse to donning a pair of oversize frames herself. "Glasses are a very covered-up way of saying something provocative." Newcomer Chris Benz had style rather than sex on his mind. He used specs to achieve a "nerdy/art school/'mess-thete' " vibe that had the crowd at his first-ever show looking twice.
i wear glasses when i'm not wearing my contacts. i find it is a difficult item to work into my wardrobe. i seem to veer off into a different style than usual when i choose my frames. i had some secretary-ish ones for a while. then sort of minimal non-existent oval wireframes. and now i am at a loss as to what to get.
Hands up, I'm tacky! I have been wearing glasses even though I have perfect vision! In my defense however, I started doing it about 11 years ago when I was in my early 20's, discovering heavy rimmed ones hide dark circles beautifully, so they have been in my 'beauty' armory ever since. And I also think people look lovely in glasses and shouldn't see them as ugly or embarrassing and I think they should be made a feature.
