Bespectacled Celebrities You’ll Want to Emulate

Eyeglasses have traditionally been associated with nerdy people who are stereotyped as socially challenged. This opinion has changed over the years, however. The truth is that some people wear eyeglasses simply because they need them physically, else they can’t see! More than than that, though, the eyeglasses industry has reached a point that the products have become well designed and fashionable.a

And who better to rock those glasses and serve as models than celebrities?

Of course, eyeglasses are not a one-size-fits all accessory. In order to actually look good wearing them – health reasons aside – you have to know how to choose the frame that fits your face shape best. Seeta Singh, optician at Your Eyes Opticians, explains:

The shapes of faces greatly impacts the styles and shapes of frames to complement one’s face.

An oval-shaped face needs a rectangular frames to shorten and widen the face, while a square-shaped face needs oval and deeper frames to soften the outline of the face. Heart-shaped faces do well with a rimless or semi-rimless to minimize the width of the temple.

While you may not be a Hollywood celebrity, you can choose your eyeglasses to give you that glam look as well. Let’s take a look at bespectacled celebrities that will give you some inspiration.

Helen Mirren

This is one classy lady we all love not only for her acting but for her ageless beauty. In this photo, she wears frames which are squarish and yet a little round along the edges. This is perfect for her face shape, which is oblong and longish. The shape of the glasses break up the long lines of her face, emphasizing her beauty even more.

Lupita Nyong’o



Lupita Nyong’o made waves with her performance in 12 Years a Slave, and her public appearances, together with her intelligent speeches, have made her a darling in the eyes of the public. This photo was taken during the MTV Movie Awards night, and her eyeglasses are the perfect example of how the color of the frame makes a difference.

Seeta Singh of Your Eyes Opticians also says that “colors to compliment the skin are also every important – the same frame in the wrong color does not look as good. You try to match the frames to the skin and eyes, as well as the hair. It all comes together when you color code.”

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston is another celebrity whom we all love, with her pretty face and charming personality. Her face is square-shaped, so the perfect frame for her is something that is wider than the widest part of her face – that balances out the proportion. No one can deny that she is rocking these glasses!

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway’s oval-shaped face is perfectly complemented by this square frame, which also draws attention to her beautiful eyes. Notice the color tones of the frame, which also suits her skin color. If you’re lucky enough to have a similarly shaped face, look for a pair of glasses like this one, and you’re sure to look great!

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson has a rare diamond-shaped face, which is best paired with top-heavy frames. These include semi-rimless glasses. Why is this the case? These types of frames draw attention to the eyes, which then give the area more width. The result is a more balanced look.

If you want to look great in glasses as these celebrities do, before you go to an optician to have eyeglasses fitted, you may want to determine if the optician is fashion-conscious. Otherwise, you might end up with ill-fitting glasses that don’t complement your face shape, your eye color, and skin color. You also should not hesitate to bring up your preferences – after all, it’s you who’s going to wear those glasses!

John Mayer and Taylor Swift

The song is several years old, but it seems that John Mayer has not forgotten the sting of it.

Remember “Dear John” by Taylor Swift? The aftermath of her relationship with well known playboy John Mayer did not leave her glowing with love. Contrarily, the “little girl” sniped back with a vengeance.

They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, but I rather than fury, but I think that I sense a deeper, stronger emotion than fury in the words Taylor Swift penned for her ex-lover. Read the rest of this entry »

Charlize Theron’s West End Dreams

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron is one of those women whose beauty never fails to evoke reactions from both men and women. We’ve all seen her Hollywood blockbusters, probably even more than once, and one has to say that she has got the acting chops as well. Read the rest of this entry »


Top 5 Most Downloaded Hollywood Hunks

Downloading has been a bone of contention for the longest time, and we will always hear different versions from the opposing camps. People will always have something to say about it, but one thing is for sure: downloading does not seem to be going anywhere in the near future.

You can watch movies any time and practically anywhere these days. It does not even have to be part of illegal downloading!

No matter what perspective you hold, though, I think you will love our list for today: the top 5 most downloaded Hollywood hunks.

The data is taken from an infographic titled Top 10 Most Pirated Movies of All Time. This is a pretty good list with lots of eye candy. My only regret: Robert Downey, Jr. did not make the cut!

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the top-grossing movies of all time, and apparently, people who download movies love it as well. The top-billed actor, of course, is understandably one of the hunkiest in Tinsel Town. I don’t think anyone will disagree!

Hollywood Mommy's Boys

Ryan Gosling

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Have you planned a treat for your mom yet? It is never too late to do something for the woman who carried you inside her body for nine months. And if you are worried that your friends may think you’re too attached to your mom for being excited about Mother’s Day, don’t! Even the hunkiest guys in Hollywood are not ashamed of their mothers. Why should you?

As a tribute to all the mothers in the world, People featured some Hollywood hunks who are actually mommy’s boys. We can’t call them closet mommy’s boys as they are actually proud of their moms.

Up first is Ryan Gosling, who says that his mom keeps the faith alive. Can it get any better than that? Read the rest of this entry »


RIP Amarillo Slim

Amarillo Slim Poker

Amarillo Slim

It seems that this period is another one of those, when we hear of deaths of significant people left and right. Right before the month of May began, Amarillo Slim passed away after battling colon cancer. I am ashamed to say that I even missed the announcement and didn’t hear about it till a week later. That goes to show how people may have forgotten this man who brought poker to a whole new level. Read the rest of this entry »


Ryan Seacrest on His Way to Building an Empire?

Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest

Everyone knows who Ryan Seacrest is, and that is saying a lot if you look back to the old days when he was a mere radio show host as a teenager. Today, there is no doubt that Mr. Seacrest is one of the biggest personalities in Hollywood, and by extension, the world.

The personable celebrity is best known for his ongoing stint as American Idol host, but he also has a lot of projects on the side. What many might not know is that just how vast his reach has become. He has not forgotten his “humble” origins and continues to do radio shows, but on top of those, he is also an integral part of E!. He even snagged a gig with no less than Dick Clark himself on “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve”! Read the rest of this entry »

Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan

Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan

The White House might very well be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and while it is open to practically everyone, certain events and areas are only for the super special. And when it comes to events, the White House Correspondents Dinner is one of the oldest traditions.

Conventionally, the dinner is supposed to be a meeting place for the President and political journalists. But who said that that has to remain the same for ages? Definitely not the current organizers of the dinner, I suppose, for we have two “unlikely” guests to this year’s dinner: Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan. Read the rest of this entry »

5 Celebrity Boob Jobs to Inspire You

The perfect pair of boobs. That’s what many women yearn for these days, isn’t it? Thanks to Hollywood, plastic surgeons, and supermodels, some women do spend considerable hours in front of a mirror trying to imagine themselves after a breast augmentation procedure.

No one can blame them. After all, guys do seem to be overly fascinated with these things we call boobs, and even women tend to envy those who are better endowed than themselves. Thank God for medical science, yes?

I have to admit, though, that while I am not all obsessing about getting a boob job, it is always amusing to observe how celebrities look before and after a breast lift. (And rarely, a breast reduction procedure.) Here’s a short list of celebrities and how they look –
breast lift before and after.

Tila Tequila

Celebrity Boob Jobs

Tila Tequila

Tila Tequila, born Tila Nguyen, is a model and TV personality but is perhaps best known for her stint as a porn star. She does have other career activities such as singing and online ventures, but who cares about that? This before and after picture is a testament to what a good surgeon can do. Oh, and that should be “before and after and after…” This gal has had more than one procedure, is what we have heard.

The Biebs Gets Snubbed by Christina Aguilera

Christina Aguilera snubs Justin Bieber

Christina Aguilera and Justin Bieber

No offense to Justin Bieber fans – although you probably still will take offense – but cry me a frakkin’ river. Seriously. This is Christina Aguilera we’re talking about. She may not be the most talented singer in the entire world, but she does have the chops.

And then there’s teen (or pre-teen) sensation Justin Bieber.

C’mon! There really is nothing to discuss, is there? Read the rest of this entry »


Brangelina to Get Married in France

Brangelina French Estate

Brangelina French Estate

So the “good old US of A” is not good enough for the most famous celebrity couple of this generation? Is that it?

Probably not.

It is no secret that the famed Hollywood couple have properties around the world, and it just so happens that they have an estate in the south of France. Mind you, the use of the word estate is not an exaggeration in this case as the couple’s property is indeed worthy of that name. One can even call in a mansion housed in sprawling grounds. But do you expect anything less from Brangelina? Read the rest of this entry »


Guns 'n Roses

Axl Rose

It’s what rock stars – and wannabe rockstars – dream of: being inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And if there is someone in our generation who is worthy of being part of that great legacy, I think that Axl Rose right there. The entire group, Guns ‘n Roses, deserves that distinction, for that matter.

But no, Axl Rose seems to have a different idea. He has respectfully declined to be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Read the rest of this entry »

Casper Smart Gets a Dodge Ram For His 25th

Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez
Who the heck is Casper Smart? That’s the reaction I got from a couple of people – but only a handful. After all, his relationship with star Jennifer Lopez has not escaped the prying eyes of the celebrity-fascinated. Far from that actually. When news broke out that Jennifer Lopez was dating one of her back up dancers, tongues started wagging, and fingers started flying across keyboards.

Come to think of it, I do not understand why anyone was surprised when Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart started hanging out “way too much”. These things should be considered a normal occurrence by now, shouldn’t they? Read the rest of this entry »


Start Your Own Celebrity Blog

start a celebrity website
Do you live and breathe celebrity news? Do you know who is going out with whom even before everyone on Twitter or Facebook start posting about it? Do you think that you can rival Perez Hilton?

Why don’t you start your own celebrity blog then?

Sure, there is money to be made if you are that good, but the main thing is that it might very well be one of the most fun things that you can do these days. If you really are that much into celebrities and their lives, then starting a blog should be like icing on the cake for you! Read the rest of this entry »

Nick Cannon

Nick Cannon is a personality in his own right, but he really got the attention of people when he hooked up with older singer Mariah Carey. You can say all you want about that – and his career as well, but it seems that the two are going strong. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Cannon’s body, which is not at its healthiest at the moment. Read the rest of this entry »

Kim Kardashian: From Flour Bombing to Buying the Beckhams’ House

Kim Kardashian Flour Bomb

Kim Kardashian Flour Bombed

We’ve all seen that image make the rounds. I don’t know about you, but I thought it was pretty hilarious! Then again, I might have thought otherwise if it were me on the receiving end.

Whatever you think about Kim Kardashian being flour bombed, it is very clear that the star – or at least her sister – didn’t appreciate it. While she took it all in stride during the event (she even laughed and cracked jokes), Khloe has released a statement via her blog. Read the rest of this entry »

Jessica Alba Turns Author

Jessica Alba's Web Site
Jessica Alba is one of those mamas that go beyond hot. While I have never been particularly into her, her steel underneath sultry looks stand out. The actress, who also doubles as a wife and mom, has branched out into other endeavors. Recently, she launched her own business called The Honest Company. The idea is not new – there is a host of other companies in the same niche – but it seems to be a passion for Alba.

The Honest Company aims to deliver family products that are natural and safe. At the same time, it offers personalized service. It works by asking some questions of the consumer first in order to customize products that will be sent to your doorsteps on a monthly basis. No, I haven’t tried it, but it seems to be going well for the actress turned entrepreneur. Read the rest of this entry »


Pregnant Celebrities Who Love Heels

Jessica Simpson Pregnant

Jessica Simpson

There is something to be said about high heels, and even women who will readily admit that heels can kill your feet will also say that heels give them an extra oomph. Whether you’re walking on the red carpet, the catwalk, or an ordinary street, the right pair of high heels just might make you feel a tad better about yourself.

But what about when you find out that you are pregnant? And what about when your belly starts showing, not to mention that your body starts feeling the weight? Read the rest of this entry »
