2014 has been an amazing year for Taylor Swift. This month, Swift dominates the media, the fashion scene and, once again, the top of the charts, holding the number one spot on Billboard’’s Artist 100. It’s only December and her new album, “1989” has sold 1.287 million copies. For such a big star, it’s no wonder Taylor Swift’s glasses choices are so often a source of buzz online. The blonde sensation looks remarkable in her oval sunglasses, but has been photographed in nearly every style of shades, from cat-eye, wayfarer and oversized frames to red, black and gold varieties.
Deteriorating relationships have been a major theme in Taylor Swift’s career. The vocalist, known for her break-up ballads, has loved and lost a list of young men including Harry Styles, John Mayer and Jake Gyllenhaal. Breaking up with boyfriends, breaking up with country music and, last month, breaking up with Spotify makes you wonder if anything is permanent in Swift’s life. The singer admits that she needs vision correction and has a few pairs of permanent eyeglasses that she loves. She also wears contact lenses that show off her unbelievably vibrant azure eyes (which you can achieve as well with Air Optix color contacts).
For fans that are keeping track of Swift’s eyewear, way back in her video for “22,” she wore a pair of loveable, nerdy glasses. In “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” she updated her frames for a black modern style. Even in oversized eyeglasses, Taylor Swift looks adorable.
Taylor Swift loves her frames, but we think she looks the best in her contacts. Her piercing blue eyes are one of the most remarkable features she has. Once more, she has mastered a reto chic appearance and has made it totally her own, so why mess with perfection?
Ariana Grande is known for her signature ponytail hairstyle. Followers on Ariana’s Instagram learned recently that her ubiquitous updo is really due to serious hair damage she sustained playing her role in “Victorious.” “I had to bleach my hair and dye it red every other week for the first four years,” Ariana explained. The music star prefers her hair in brown tones and loves to model playful glasses. Changing her colors and styles in vision wear to accessorize with her outfits has added a sense of flair to Grande’s look.
Ariana Grande’s smart-girl glasses fit her Nickelodeon persona. When the network canceled her sitcom, Grande was already working hard on her second album and enjoying a blossoming music career. At age 21, Grande’s confident, intelligent look versus her bubble gum diva look is so very different. Her heart-shaped face easily pulls off the modern cat-eye frames she sports above as well as the traditional aviator frames she models in the next photograph.
Hitting the high notes is no problem for Grande. Hitting the high fashion scene however is a bit awkward for the singer. “I think of music first,” Grande stated when asked about her age-appropriate wardrobe choices compared to other music stars within the public eye.
Grande, a confident and talented singing sensation, looks so lovable in glasses, don’t you agree?
So, what do you think? Is Swift better off keeping her baby blues unrestrained by glasses, or should she ditch the contact lenses for some hipster frames? Are oversized glasses the next signature accessory for Ariana Grande or will she be victorious with an eyewear-free look? Luckily, these women (and you) have the ability to experiment and diversify their appearances, thanks to popular contacts like Biofinity, Air Optix Aqua and Acuvue Oasys.
