I’ve always been a little disappointed that my 20/20 vision precludes me from wearing glasses. In addition to making a person look smarter, I think they just look cool in general…there’s nothing like a nice set of frames to compliment a cute outfit. But aside from a brief foray into fake, prescription-less ones (I’m sorry), I’ve never had the occasion wear them, despite the fact that staring at a computer screen for eight hours a day really should have made me need them by now.
Enter Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian. With their terrible new ad for Kardashian Kollection eyewear, they may have cured me of my glasses lust forever!
Clad in hideous lacy Kollection items and giant door knocker earrings, the girls rock their glasses as if to say, “Just because you wear glasses doesn’t mean you have to like, read books or anything!” I’m getting a real Sarah Palin vibe from Kim especially, although those earrings might be a little too “ethnic” for the likes of her. Or is that Kourtney? Someone in post-production had an itchy trigger finger on the blur tool.
As always, Khloe looks the least like someone put glasses on a cat, took the dumb beast’s photo, and then posted it on the internet for all to LOL at, but she also had to wear the worst lacy thing, so it evens out. Whose idea was it to have two black rivers of nothingness emanating from the bottoms of her boobs? I get it that it’s “in” (or it was a while ago) to draw a skinnier body on your body, but this might be the worst iteration of the form I’ve seen yet.
In conclusion, glasses might make most people look convincingly more like people who read, but much like the British accent, they have their limits.
