Eyewear Shines at the Oscars

The grand finale of award season took place this past weekend, as Hollywood’s elite gathered for their shot at Oscar gold – the highest honor in the industry. As expected, The Artist and Hugo were the heavy hitters of the evening, picking up five awards each. Other memorable moments included Meryl Streep’s win in the tight race for Best Actress, Octavia Spencer’s emotional win for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Help and Angelina Jolie’s fierce, leggy presenting pose, which earned her right leg a Twitter account.

Besides it being an entertaining evening, the 84th Academy Awards served up some stellar eyewear on the red carpet and during the show. Geek chic and rimless frames took top honors, and were certainly the most popular choice among celebs. Check out the hottest looks of the night below:
