Joanne Peh goes nerdy chic

Watching Joanne Peh try on specs at the Gentle Monster opening on Tuesday night (Sep 26) made us realise two things: one, that we need to get a pair of these for ourselves, and two, that a lot of our local celebs – like Joanne – look super cute in glasses. Here’s who else should follow suit:

We love how Aloy’s Dream Coder frames magnified his big, bright eyes – even though his character was supposed to be a bit of an awkward turtle, we found the look kind of cute, in a Harry Potter way.

Carrie, who was blessed with a small face, offset her delicate features with a pair of oversized gold frames. A short, blunt fringe keeps the look quirky and youthful.

Wearing glasses when you’re built like Desmond Tan is akin to saying, “I’m tall, handsome, buff, AND smart. In case you were wondering. And despite the fact that I’m being photographed in my underwear.”

There’s something mildly sinister about a bespectacled dude cradling a rabbit, but uhhh, it kind of works for Zhenhuan. (More villainous roles for him, please.)
