As WWD reported yesterday, there have been a lot of celebrities spotted in glasses as of late. The first to really set things off was Cate Blanchett, who was photographed wearing thick black frames out to the theatre. Then, we saw Helena Christensen and Daisy Lowe sporting their own pairs, and when we spotted a bespectacled Chloe Sevigny, we knew this was officially a trend. But how come we've never seen any of these ladies in glasses before? Did everyone just decide to ditch the contact lenses all in the same month? We think this could be true for some of them. But we think we're on to the others' secret: fake glasses. We've actually known people who wear fake glasses on a daily basis. They say specs make them look smarter, kind of like when we wear wedges under long pants to look taller, or highlights to appear blonde. We guess this could be just another accessory like any other. But there's something about their false use that comes off as, dare we say it, poser-ish? Would you wear fake glasses? And, more importantly, would you cop to it if anyone asked you if they were fake?
