Since Lady Gaga launched onto the music scene in 2008 with her hit “Just Dance,” she’s been all over everything. She’s put out five albums, all of which have been undeniable, critically acclaimed hits. Touring around the globe, she’s amassed a huge fan base that’s shown no sign of slowing down. Along with her music, she’s been an absolute sensation in the fashion world. No one takes risks quite like she does. While every single outfit has been extensively critiqued by fashion blogs and magazines around the world, we’re going to focus on what we do best: eyewear. What suits Lady Gaga better: glasses or no glasses? Keep reading as we discuss her boldest frame choices.
When Lady Gaga first hit the scene, she dazzled fans with her hair bows and wildly eccentric clothing. But you already know what we honed in on—those glasses! The large, thick frames may have looked kinda crazy on anyone else, but here, with that hair bow and heavy bangs, they work. With all that hair hovering over her face, we think she would have been lost. While glasses often overshadow a face, we think they actually help hers stand out. Well done, Lady Gaga!
Now, for some balance, here we have Lady Gaga without glasses, and we think it’s absolutely stunning. The soft, platinum blonde hair, deep red lips, heavy brows, and full eye makeup is certainly a dramatic look, but that’s what everyone loves about Gaga. She’s a total risk-taker. Of course, as we say that, we admit this is definitely one of her more feminine, lighter looks. Either way, totally gorgeous. We think Lady Gaga looks great with her eyes front and center, unhidden by any heavy frames.
Like the last pic, we love how soft this one is too. The cream suit, simple black tie, and flowing Lady Godiva-like hair is an interesting change-up for the pop icon. Even her makeup is understated, done in nudes, soft pinks, and browns for an almost natural look. What really stands out here are Lady Gaga’s thin, gold rimmed glasses. Just like everything she does, the frames are a unique choice, and we can’t think of many people that could pull them off quite as well as she does.
This takes the beloved flower crown to a whole new level. Not satisfied to simply let the adronment lay across her head, Lady Gaga’s approach was to instead cover her entire head in a dreamy, colorful bouquet. Like most of her choices, we don’t know many people willing to even attempt something this grandiose, but isn’t that part of her charm? We’re glad she left off any frames with this one, as it would have been a touch overkill. We love how Lady Gaga’s eyes look so bright and glowing in this picture.
It seems that Lady Gaga has figured out which glasses, kooky as they may be, work best on her face and petite frame. It’s a surprise choice to go so bold with these goggle-like thick gold frames, but, like we said, she knows what works. The round glasses seem to be a favorite. While these are a totally unconventional choice, we can’t help admire the completely unique and fun spirit of them.
At this year’s Grammy Awards, Lady Gaga was a total stunner. She went total glam in a va-va-voom sparkling silver dress that nearly matched her flowing locks. Her makeup was on point and subtle compared to some of her more zealous past looks. She skipped glasses for this event, and we have to applaud the choice. Her eyes look totally sensational with the dark liner and ice-blue shadow.
We admit, we usually have a fairly strong opinion in the glasses vs no-glasses debate, but for Lady Gaga, we call a draw. Her daring fashion sense is so refreshing and artistic that it’s hard to critique anything when she’s taking such wholly thoughtful and stylish risks, clunky glasses and all.
