My friend suggested this for last week, but I already had the tie idea, so I pushed it for this week. I am very excited. Yes, the red glasses will make an appearance.
Why make you wait? Shahrukh, glasses, wild hair and beard. Some kind of bohemian animal poet type.
Shahrukh, glasses, intense thoughtful look. Deep shy scholar type. Maybe an engineer.
Shahrukh, glasses, podium. Powerful important type who is still vulnerable with his little eye weakness.
Shahrukh, unshaved tired look, ORANGE GLASSES???? What is this monstrosity???? WHERE IS OUR RED????
Ah, there they are!
And of course, his best fictional glasses look:
See, the thing with Shahrukh is, glasses feel natural. Mature, thoughtful, responsible, all of that. But then you have Hrithik, say, who in glasses just looks like he is in disguise or a Halloween costume or something. And he is very tired of this whole pretense
John Abraham also looks like he is playing dress up. But more in a kind of “to keep the romance alive, I will throw myself into sexy shy librarian role playing just to please you” way.
Or, if that doesn’t do it for you, he is happy to try “soulful historical intellectual”. Still can’t believe he was in this movie by the way. Love John Abraham, but he just doesn’t scream “complex role in Oscar nominated film” so much as “underwear model”.
You know who surprisingly doesn’t look like he is playing dress up, and also looks really good in glasses? Salman! There is a kind of “yeah, this is a part of me, so what?” feel to the look.
Although, he does sometimes seem a wee bit aware of them. As in, my absolute favorite music video ever! Just makes me smile! So over the top in his “I’m a singer!” mannerisms! I don’t even care that it breaks the “no videos in TGIF posts” rule, it’s worth it!
Oh dang! Why did no one tell me how hot Aamir is in glasses? And I don’t even usually like him!
I always like Varun, and he is looking goooooooooooooood in the Judwaa 2 poster that just came out.
There are many Ranbir glasses photo options, but this is the only one that even comes glass to being appealing to me. Maybe because the glasses are just part of the whole look instead of feeling like he is throwing them in our face, all “oooo, I wear glasses, I am sensitive and vulnerable!”
Speaking of intelligent, for those of you with more of a thinking woman’s taste, I give you Irrfan! In Shahrukh’s red glasses.
And for the non-thinking woman in all of us, Prabhas! In sunglasses so it doesn’t really belong here, but I am kicking myself for not including it in the sunglasses and/or tie posts where it actually belonged.
But this one of Rana, this one’s legit.
Okay okay, I’ll give you the southern star most likely to look thoughtful and fragile in glasses-Mahesh!
And finally, in a move towards gender equality and openness to all sexualities, Kajol! In glasses!
Also, Katrina! Who somehow looks better in glasses than without.
I don’t understand this, why do women get all the sexy glasses photo shoots and not the men? Sure, Sonakshi looks great here, but Shahrukh would look great like this too! Where are the photographers to tell them “keep the glasses, lose the shirt”?
And finally, the evergreen classic, that moment when Salman meets Madhuri and falls for her spunky cute glasses look.
