What’s the first thing that pops into your head when you think of glasses? Probably the nerd who sat in front of the class in third grade, constantly pushing up huge, round spectacles that kept slipping down his/her nose. Or maybe you were that nerd. Either way, the first word that comes to mind when we think of glasses is usually not “gorgeous” or “stylish.” A classic trope in teenage movies is the makeover of the unpopular kid who turns out to be way more attractive when the cumbersome glasses come off.
However, some celebrities make you reconsider your views on glasses. Whether they rock spectacles everyday or use them as a fashion statement, they pull off the look so well that you’ll be itching to put on a pair. Here’s our list of 10 celebrities who put the chic in geek.
