Snooki: Now With Very, Very Blue Eyes

It’s no secret that The Situation thinks Snooki is looking mighty fine this season on “Jersey Shore.” I wonder what he’d think of her with her new electric blue contact lenses, which she was spotted with yesterday while leaving a hair salon in New York. Personally, I think they are fab—I am a total sucker for the dark hair and blue eyes combination. [Radar]

But interestingly, Snooki’s new look has her looking an awful lot like another famous lady who stepped out with blue-as-the-ocean eyes recently. Find out who after the jump.

Christian Dior Would Like To See You (Literally) In Contact Lenses

Combining fashion and eyewear is a slightly contradictory deal. On the one hand, there are people who actually need to wear glasses, and so they opt for designer frames to deal with their genetic failings (but often still wish that their condition didn’t have to be a fashion statement). Then there are those who just think geeky specs are cool, so they stock up on fashion frames. (Note: I am one of those losers, thank you very much.) Now Christian Dior is taking things to a new level with these branded contact lenses, which have a swipe of gold on the surface as well as a tiny CD logo. So, these are for people who want to be all-designer, all the time? Because rarely is someone going to get so close to your face that they’ll ask you, “OMG, I love your eyes, where did you get them?” Or worse, during pillow talk when your guy gazes lovingly at you, he’ll now say something along the lines of, “Your eyes are just so … amazingly … trendy.”

What do you think of these Christian Dior contact lenses? Totally ridiculous? Or the beginning of a huge trend wave? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Would You Wear UV-Responsive Contact Lenses?

Does anyone wear glasses with those “transition lenses”? You know, the ones that darken to become sunglasses when you step into the light? Are we wrong in assuming that they’re kind of uncool? (Read: for old people.)

What if you could get the benefits of automatic sunglasses without the actual frames? Researchers in Singapore have now created contact lenses with the same capability; they remain clear until exposed to the UV light of the sun, and darken to shade your vision (and also protect the eye).

Do you find this creepy, or incredibly useful and neat? Honestly, we’d hate to give up our sunglasses addiction—they’re one of our favorite accessories! [Technology Review] Keep reading »

How Do We Feel About Amber Rose’s “Avant Garde” Contact Lenses?

Despite how hectic our Fashion Week schedules are around here, we had a chance to pop by the Persona magazine launch party and run into Kanye West (of course), music-and-more mogul Russell Simmons, kooky supermodel Janice Dickinson, and, of course, cover model of the new issue, Amber Rose. How gorgeous is Miss Rose in person? Ridiculously so. Who else could get away with that controversial hairdo? And while her skintight silver jumpsuit was superhero chic, the Marilyn Manson-esque eyeballs she was sporting were a tad too high concept for us. But judging from all the Kanye/Amber PDA going on between those two, he is totally into them. So there you have it. Check out Persona here. Keep reading »
