Tina Fey On Being A Four-Eyed Sex Symbol: “I Tend To Look Like Tootsie”

“People certainly have a thing about the glasses. Liz Lemon wore them all the time, and I wore them on ‘Weekend Update’ to see the cue cards. The ones I wore on ’30 Rock’ were fake, but I kept borrowing them for years—I’d take them home and go to the movies. I finally realized they…

Are Fake Glasses A Good Thing?

Fake glasses or spectacles are the easiest fashion fix there is. Yesterday, after three meetings before 11 a.m. my fake specs came to the rescue when I dashed over to NYFW in the afternoon. Out of the door at 7:30 a.m. meant my hair was limp and clothes creased, but I felt brainy, busy and…

Style 911: Can I Wear Glasses And Earrings Together?

I’ve worn contacts since I was 14, but recently, my eyes just aren’t tolerating them very well. I am moving closer and closer to wearing glasses full time. I believe that 90% of my hatred of glasses comes back to the fact that I just don’t like the way they look with earrings, one of…

Shopping Guide: 10 Cheap Pairs Of Sunglasses In Every Style!

As much as I love my sunglasses, I’m in a constant state of losing them. It’s usually my favorite pair that I “misplace,” given that I’m always carrying them with me, and it usually ends in tears. There’s just way too many places to casually leave them and then forget about them just as casually.

The Many Glasses Of Woody Allen

I always assumed the original nerd boyfriend Woody Allen wore the same glasses in movie after movie. But alas, there are subtle differences. Maybe in 50 years someone can replicate this chart with Lady Gaga’s hair? [World of Wonder]…

2011 Glasses Kind Of Defeat The Point

Those New Year’s sunglasses had a good run from 2000-2010. But we gotta say: Once you get to 2011, isn’t the point kind of defeated? The look just isn’t quite working for this year. Try again in 2020? [Party City]…

Sally Jessy Raphael’s Signature Red Glasses Came With Her Pap Smear

“I couldn’t see the teleprompter. So I saw an ad that said, ‘We do a Pap smear and give you red glasses.’ They said were going to trade me up [for a more expensive pair]. I said: ‘You’re not going to trade me up. I don’t have that kind of money.’ It’s all they had…

Would You Wear These: Prada Eyebrow Glasses?

Crystal Renn loves these Eyebrow Glasses from Prada’s fall/winter 2010 collection so much she’s going to turn them into her prescription glasses. We’ve been seeing a resurgence in the cat’s eye glasses trend; however, these are a real first. Playful, feminine and possibly a little snarky, these glasses could be really cute on the right…

3-D Glasses Get Fashionable

The way we live now: thanks to 3-D video games, porn, and movies (“Avatar,” say whaaa?) coming back from the retro grave, the dorky glasses that go with them have already been co-opted by the masses.

Is It Too Early To Start Thinking About Spring Shades?

Coming this spring: Alexander Wang’s first sunglasses collection, which includes these uh-may-zing cat’s-eye shades that I’m going to declare this summer’s must-have beach peepers. How much do they cost? I’m guessing somewhere in the range of I-don’t-want-to-know. [Pipeline]…
