Do you ever wonder why it seems that celebrities are never recognized in the store? There are hundreds of recognizable faces from Hollywood and us everyday people hardly ever have an accidental run-in?
Maybe they are just masters of disguise and are actually all around us. Oftentimes when celebrities leave their luxurious homes, there is no doubt they are leaving the fancy hair and makeup at home. But that doesn’t mean the kick style out the window. It is not uncommon to see them rocking their favourite boyfriend jeans, prescription glasses, or drug store makeup looks. Somehow always making them look flawless! Well here are 10 celebrities we spotted who are no doubt using their glasses out in public to hide who they really are – and can we just say, we may like them better with the lenses!
I’m sorry what? Is that the girl from Never Been Kissed? Pretty sure this is an all-star CEO model ready to steal your heart with those amazing green-blue eyes accentuated by the fantastic tortoise lenses. Drew’s rounded face is all of the sudden balanced out by the shape and subtle design of these glasses, they take her to another level and there is no doubt if we saw her on the street we would have been doing a double-take.
From raging California Biker to very proper looking young chap? Charlie Hunnam does a complete 180-degree turnaround in looks with these trendy, circular eyes glasses, in the perfect light brown shade. They make him look sophisticated and like he knows his way around poetry. You won’t catch this guy in an SOA jacket, but maybe in a library?
Superman and Clark Kent always had their differences… but somehow the most differentiating feature was the wide-brimmed glasses. Henry Cavill mystifies us again with these gorgeous frames. So much so, we can totally see how you can get him confused for your college boyfriend you were madly in love with. Henry has taken on a new role in the Witcher where he is definitely not wearing glasses, but we would gladly take him this way too. So while it may be difficult to recognize this celeb in a crowd, you would definitely notice him.
Robert Downy Jr always exudes style but just a touch of facial hair and some new frames and this looks like a whole different person. He can take on any persona with the perfect smirk but can easily change into any character with different shades. We often do see him wearing glasses whether it is out in public or at the latest Iron Man premiere, either way, he looks 100% charming.
Kaley takes studious to a different kind of trendy level with wide-framed eyeglasses. Her fun-loving persona charges through any style and makes her very versatile. From TV show sets to the grocery store she always hits the target when it comes to on-trend style.
Anne embodies the perfect girl next door vibe in an array of different ways. Throw on a pair of glasses and the whole look changes, Anne looks fabulous in a pair of thick-framed eyeglasses, which only add to her look and overall style, simultaneously accentuating her amazing smile. She definitely looks different from the Princess of Genova days.
We’re used to seeing Jason playing a hunky star in a variety of different roles. Pretty confident that if Aquaman was strolling through the mall, he would be noticeable. But throw on a pair of eyeglasses and now we have a different situation. This star went from tousled Golden Globes ready to staring in a jazz band on the weekends? Maybe he plays the saxophone? Totally different look, same guy, but one thing is for sure, still attractive, but like in a new way.
This GOT star stole our hearts over and over again for 8 seasons and threw his hair in the wind for every one of them. This star creates a dramatic shift in character by letting his hair down and putting on some small, circular framed glasses, the seriousness level in the room just increased. Same outfit and same expression, but you’re getting a totally different look and vibe.
This Friends star has played a number of different roles over the years, but her iconic straight natural blonde hair and bright blue eyes are always recognizable. Although, she threw us all for a loop when she showed up with glasses? Still cute and chic, staying classy and not overly trendy, Aniston adopted a quick new style that is just as loveable as her. You might not always catch her with the cute frames, but she is always nailing her style no matter what the occasion or accessory.
Lady Gaga might be the most interesting and unexpected look with glasses on. The woman with some of the most extreme looks and fashion statements to date can still shock us with a simple new statement. This goes to show how different, iconic, and unpredictable this star really is. You never know what she is going to come up with next, but it’s always a surprise. Eyeglasses can take an outfit or a person from drab to fab. Choosing the right prescription eyeglasses are not only important, but they could be a game-changer for your wardrobe, and persona. Great looks can be achieved with the simplest pair of glasses to a bold pair that communicates you are ready to take on the day.
These celeb styles go to show you that style is what you make it and even the simplest change done well, can completely change a look or an idea of someone. Glasses can be a great additional fashion statement or a positive habit that adds personality to your everyday life and routine. Check out some new styles and start reinventing yourself.
