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.
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 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 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’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 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!

The act of dumping a bucket of ice cold water over one’s head is no longer reserved for football coaches. Anyone can do it anywhere. It seems everyone is doing it these days, including a long list of celebrities who are drenching themselves to raise money for ALS research. Sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS, short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
The challenge is geared to promoting awareness of the disease and to encourage donations. To date, the association is being flooded with monies earmarked for the cause. Although the challenge first gained media attention in the United States on June 30, 2014 during an airing of the Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive,” it was The Today’s Show’s Matt Lauer who introduced it to mainstream audiences when he accepted the challenge a month later. A special thanks goes out to social media as well for doing what it does best – making things spiral out of control. Read the rest of this entry »

Having a pet is good for you, and even if you’re a celebrity, you might need the companionship that only pets can bring. And we certainly know that some celebrities love and spoil their pets out of this world.
From extraordinary grooming habits to gourmet food to specially-built homes – these celebrity pets are more spoiled than the average American. And, just like their parents, they have special medical attention when necessary and patronize only the cream of the crop of animal clinics such as Panda Animal Clinic, which provides integrative medicine for pets, and even counseling on pet health, nutrition, exercise, surgery, and holistic medicines, including acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments!
If you want to get mind-blown by just how some celebrities love and spoil their pets – and maybe be a little envious, take a look at these five celebrities and their uber spoiled pets. Read the rest of this entry »

Why is it not expected for celebrities to go bankrupt? Is it because of the seemingly never-ending flow of money that comes in staggering amounts? Is it the vast talent and skills that they possess that assure them of a continuous money-making mechanism? Or is it because they have the look of affluence and richness so attached to them that it is simply difficult to imagine them otherwise or worse, going bankrupt.
A lot of celebrities have found themselves going from riches to rags. Several are still in the difficult phase of recovery. There were others who chose to consult with a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorney and were advised to file for bankruptcy. There are some people who are more suited to file for the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. It is necessary to get the best advice from experts when a person is in such a difficult financial situation. Celebrities going bankrupt is a wake-up call that getting big money will be able to protect us from bankruptcy.
Here are the Top 3 Celebrities Least Expected to Go Bankrupt but did:
If someone purchased a town to develop it into an entertainment attraction, would people expect that person to go bankrupt anytime soon? Probably not but that is exactly what happened to actress Kim Basinger. When she purchased the small town of Braselton for $20 million, no one was expecting her to file for bankruptcy. No, it wasn’t the buying of the town that did her in but the paying of damages required of her after she backed out from doing the film “Boxing Helena”.
If people were to base the probability of bankruptcy on the huge ring earnings of Mike Tyson, the percentage will be quite small. However, those incredibly large earnings proved no match to his unbridled extravagance. Even when broke, he says that he does not regret losing money because he had fun.
If people were again to guess the probability to go bankrupt on Mark Twain‘s creative genius and money-making capabilities, the percentage will likewise be nil. Bad investments and equally bad money management habits brought him to bankruptcy. What is notable about his case is that he was able to pay all his debts eventually even after he was relieved of such responsibility when he filed for bankruptcy.
This just goes to show that anyone can go bankrupt, including celebrities. The positive side here is that they have also proven that there is life after bankruptcy. However, hard lessons have admittedly been learned.
