GEEK CHIC OR FREAK REEK? DISCUSS.
Massive lady glasses are the strong shoulder of facial fashion: Women think they’re trendy, men think they’re frumpy, everyone has an opinion one way or another. Anne Hathaway made a splash on the red carpet last weekend in Gucci and some statement-making specs, and we have a lot of feedback for her. Anne, why do you feel the need to play up your facial features? They’re already so big and intense and beautiful! Anne, your frames are too big! Anne, what happened to your hairbrush? Anne, the ponytail-with-tendrils thing is so Amber from “Clueless”! But we’ve all erred in the ways of ocular fashion. The question that plagues fashionistas mulling a trip to Moscot is: When do obnoxious frames become cute? We’ve assembled the best and worst geek-chic moments for the final word in big, huge glasses. —Emma Barker
