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 like glasses if the people wearing them actually need them. Just wearing glasses for the hell of it is tacky.

I've been wanting a clear/quartz plastic framed pair for a while for myself.

Even though this is a bit of a pointless accessory, these Beckerman's are very cute:

I agree it's such a personal item. . .

I wish I needed glasses. I remember being 12 or something and wearing some because I thought they were cool. Now I feel silly wearing them when I don't need them.

I love the geeky ones and the Marc by. .

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.

I don't have any clear frames yet (still looking around for the perfect pair) but I've seen Marc Jacobs has some available in quartz, like this:
