Miss Dior: Mila Kunis – Voted Sexiest Woman Alive 2012

Hollywood movie star Mila Kunis and current face of Dior was voted the Sexiest Woman Alive 2012 by Esquire. We must admit, its hard to disagree; there is something about the pint-sized star of Friends with Benefits. She even says so herself “If I wanted to charm the pants off you, I could”. All I can say is “be my guest”.

Mila Kunis has been the face of Dior’s advertising campaigns since the Spring/Summer 2012 campaign. In the photo (above) she is classy and elegant wearing Dior sunglasses.

Top Specs to Make You Stand Out From the Crowd in 2012

Here are some great examples of styles that are a little more attention grabbing or just a bit different from your average pair of glasses.

Street Survey Says Wearing Glasses Makes You Up To 75% MORE Sexy to The Opposite Sex

On the 23rd November 2011 we carried out a Street Survey to find out if wearing glasses changes the way people see you.  With photos of five different people (both with and without their glasses) we asked passers by to rate a selection of the images based on the following traits: -

  • Attractiveness
  • Intelligence
  • Trustworthiness
  • Employability
  • Sex Appeal

Even we were amazed by the results.

100% of the models were considered by the public to be sexier, more employable, trustworthy AND intelligent when wearing their specs.  But even more interestingly, our study found that it was men who benefited most from embracing their specs.

Women considered the male models on average 38% more attractive and 35% more intelligent when wearing glasses.  One male model was perceived as a whopping 75% sexier when seen in specs.  Men in general were considered to be 60% MORE SEXY by women.  With figures like that it seems like a no-brainer - If you want to turn heads, you've got to make a 'spectacle' of yourself.

Take a look at our video from the day (above) and see what people really had to say about glasses wearers.  Or bask in the glory of our study results from our Infographic below.

Courteney Cox Sexy Specs in Scream 4

I finally got round to watching my Blu-Ray copy of Scre4m the other night, having picked it up during the Halloween weekend.  The fun and games of Halloween may have been and gone, but there’s always time for a scary movie in my book.

I couldn’t watch this movie and let this little blog post slip; its part of our passion for fashion eyewear that every time we watch a movie, we just can’t ignore a good bit of glasses appreciation, especially when it comes to the Geek Chic look on someone as hot as Courteney Cox.

Get Your Glasses On for Valentine’s Day – Specs ARE Sexy!

FAR FROM being a turn-off, girls who wear glasses are MORE likely to stoke up a steamy session with the man of their dreams, according to the results of our Sexy Specs Survey.

The overwhelming majority – 92.7% – of men questioned said they find women who wear glasses sexy, proving that specs aren’t the barrier to passion, as so commonly perceived.

And – not surprisingly – the “sexy librarian/school mistress/secretary in glasses” image remains a firm fantasy-fueller with over 80% agreeing that the look floats their boat.

Four eyes are also better than two for women with

Valentine’s Day Sexy Specs Survey

It’s pink and it’s 24 hours long – yes, it’s nearly Valentine’s Day again. It’s the one day of the year when we feel compelled to make wild gestures of love and devotion before reverting to normal behaviour for the other 364 days.  But hey, love does make the world go round so we’re all for a bit of passion and pampering to inject some fun into a cold winter’s day.

What we’re really interested in is whether you find the opposite sex attractive if they are wearing glasses.  Do you think wearing specs is a handicap in the quest for romance or really a symbol of hidden passions

Sarah Palin: She’s in Fashion

Whatever your opinions are of Sarah Palin, there’s no denying the fact that she has been grabbing the lion’s share of the headlines during the 2008 Presidential Election campaign.  Republican US presidential candidate John McCain’s chosen running mate seems to have gained more attention than the man himself. While Barack Obama appears to be easing ahead in the polls, its almost as if Sarah Palin is the new Britney Spears or Paris Hilton of Internet search terms.  “Sarah Palin” is No. 1 on the list of mostly widely used
