Everybody wears reading glasses. Even celebrities, those genetically blessed human beings, need reading glasses to see what’s on the menu at their favorite restaurant. So in a world that is usually photoshopped and blurred to perfection, seeing Oprah or Julia Roberts in a pair of readers can feel like a breath of fresh air. Stars really are just like us!
We dug around the Internet for pictures of our favorite celebrities in readers, and then found the glasses that match the look so you can get them yourselves. Celebrity reading glasses are sometimes even regular glasses. Because we can’t all spend $400 on custom-made Italian frames like Oprah, you can still channel her iconic Golden Globes awards look with The Snatchers, a pair of oversized black frames from The Book Club. That’s not the only Oprah inspiration we have.
Looking for something a little more subtle? Take a hint from Meryl Streep’s thin-rimmed, oval frames and put this pair of lookalikes from The Book Club in your cart. Catherine Zeta-Jones’s long, rectangular pair are sleek, modern, and elevated. We love the shape, but softened them a bit with this tortoiseshell version from Eyebobs. The bright blue arms give it a playful spin too.
Annette Bening’s clear frames are fun and artsy, but still pretty lowkey. You can get the exact same look (for way less) with this pair from Eyebobs. If you like the clear frames but crave a little bit more drama, MacKenzie-Childs is here for you. Their frosted clear frames paired with the iconic checkerboard print on the arms is perfect.
