Men may seldom make passes on girls who wear glasses. But the red blooded nerd is not limited to such trivialities. Not only will we make passes, but we thrive on girls who wear glasses. Quite frankly not enough females break out the prescription lenses.
So, I put together a list of the top celebrity women who rock the sexy librarian glasses look. And I'm talking full on four-eyes-can't-see-no-date-on-friday-night-glasses glasses. Famous girls in over-sized sunglasses hardly count. Additionally, I want women who really wear glasses, women who are known for glasses, not some secretly squinty starlet. You can definitely find photos of Zooey Deschanel, Hayden Panettiere, Alicia Keys, Rosario Dawson, or Anna Faris wearing glasses, but that doesn't mean they wear glasses. We will have no pretenders here.
Thora Birch almost made the list solely because of her role in Ghost World. However, her part dictated the glasses, her glasses didn't dictate the part. Likewise, Sienna Miller is very hot as G.I. Joe's vision impaired Baroness, but hot or not, that doesn't count toward Sienna's glasses cred.
I don't know what I love more about Lisa Loeb, the fact the she loves wearing glasses or that she hates wearing pants. Lisa's number one in glasses and number one in our hearts.
I can't really say much more about Tina Fey than I already have. Her scar, her glasses, her alleged lack of self esteem, makes me believe that she's attainable. Plus she says things like, “By the hammer of Thor,” let's see 20/20 girls pull that off.
Janeane Garofalo is perhaps the first lady to shove the Hollywood image system aside and let her glasses shine. She helped a whole generation of young women wear black, make snarky comments, and be proud of their glasses.
Chloe wears glasses. Often in public. That's about it. She also performed oral sex in a movie. That kind of shows off where glasses rate in our society. It takes a girl willing to perform fellatio on screen to wear glasses on the red carpet.
Brainy. Cute. Does all the work. Short skirt wearing. Not a bad dancer. Why would Freddie ever waste so much time with Daphne? Scooby-Doo's Velma paved the why for glasses wearing cartoon characters like Daria Morgendorffer.
Who's your favorite girl in glasses?
