When I was growing up, I thought wearing glasses was very uncool. Maybe it was because my dad had the most horrendous 'Should have gone to Specsavers' type that were far too big with shockingly thick frames. I remember him always peering over them, and I used to think, why wear them if you don't actually look into them? Childhood memories aside, I now have far wiser take on glasses which is that with the right shape, colour and frames, glasses can look uber sexy actually. Think, Johnny Depp, Jenny McCarthy and Julia Roberts, who have all at some point looked stylish in spectacles.
It seems fitting then that Specsavers are running a competition to find the 2009 Spectacle Wearer of the Year. The winner will receive a modeling contract with Premier Model Management who have represented Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista and is the current home to Vogue cover girls Georgina Cooper and Kirsty Hume. They’ll also receive an all expenses paid trip to Barbados or St Lucia. Mr. Gok Wan - fashion guru and spectacle wearer himself judging the finalists come October.
The team at Specsavers, ASOS and social media agency Jam are still scouring the streets and the internet to find the all important winner. So if you'd like to enter click here Good Luck!
