Instant Classic: Cat-Eye Glasses

Retro-fitted frames get into the swing of things with nary a poodle skirt in sight.

Jeffery Westbrook Studio
Once upon a time, boys didn't make passes at girls who wore glasses. But in the '50s, cat-eye frames put an end to that. Shaped after the tail fins of the era's roadsters, the specs made it glam to look smart. Leading ladies like Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe sealed their sultry fate. Now, despite the comeback of '70s bug-eye specs, even Mary-Kate Olsen rocks the vintage rims. Never thought you'd see the day? Hindsight is always 20/20.
