Are you looking to buy a pair of new glasses? If so, there’s no need to worry about how you’ll look in them – I know I do from time to time. Glasses have had a bad rap over the years, and it’s time we put the matter to rest. People don’t have to look bad in glasses—in fact, here are 10 celebrities showing that you and anyone else can look great while wearing glasses. Though glasses are mostly used for visual defects, they can still work as fashion statements or great accessories. I’ve actually got quite a few glasses now, but they are all very different so that I can match them with any look! And I’m actually thinking of buying another pair soon… You can never have too many.

Jennifer Aniston

With her pretty oval-shaped face, Jennifer Aniston can rock any frame shape, just as long as the size doesn’t make her features look smaller. She has been seen wearing large square glasses, aviators, and small oval frames. She looks good in all of them.


Rashida Jones

Rashida Jones’s face tapers down to a cute pointed chin. The key here is to select frames that don’t overload the upper half of her face and make her look out of balance. She always wears thin frames or half-rimmed glasses.


Henry Cavill

As befits an actor playing Superman, Henry Cavill has a strong jawline and a cleft chin. He can get away with larger, squarish frames. He can definitely do well with handmade glasses. He also has beautiful blue eyes that don’t get overshadowed by his pecs—oops, I meant specs.


Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys just has one of those faces—any haircut or accessory looks good on her. She still opts for a pair of glasses that go well with the proportions and contours of her face. After all, we all work with what we’ve got!


Zoe Saldana

Just like Rashida Jones, Zoe Saldana’s delicate face ends with a delicate pointed chin. Zoe wears glasses that don’t overwhelm her face, and she sticks to thin frames. With her face shape, she can wear almost any shape as long as the frames are in the right size.



Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss has a long-ish face and sharp features. She looks great in larger, more rounded frames because it softens her features somewhat. She typically chooses frames that complement her features and keep her look balanced.


Jason Momoa

Jason Momoa, best known as the leader of a barbarian horde of horseriders on Game of Thrones, nonetheless looks polished and pensive while wearing glasses. He often rocks tinted lenses and looks good in square or rounded frames.

Mindy Kaling

With her cute little pointed chin and wider, squarish face, Mindy Kaling rocks tortoiseshell glasses with delicate frames. These glasses flatter the proportions of her face and offset her features very well.


Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner’s face has an amazing bone structure. For faces like hers, the key is to frame and flaunt the bone structure with thin rims or half-rims. She can also rock any frame shape as long as the glasses are not too large.


Cate Blanchett

When you have great cheekbones, the last thing you want to do is draw attention away from them or make them seem nonexistent. Cate Blanchett shows off her amazing cheekbones by wearing glasses that graze just above her cheeks. Many eyewear makers allow their customers to request handmade custom designs that can fit their faces nicely, like Cate Blanchett’s glasses.
