The 90s kid inside us just screamed a little. Sarah Michelle Gellar, more fondly known as Buffy the Vampire Slayer or the evil, borderline-incestuous Kathryn in Cruel Intentions, is in Australia on official business for Specsavers.
She’s a judge and ambassador of the brand’s 2014 Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition, to help inspire confidence in those who wear glasses. She hit up the Specsavers fashion show at Sydney’s Pier One Hotel last night, alongside Pip Edwards and Alex Perry, and also encouraged Samantha Armytage to try a pair of specs on Sunrise this morning.
Samantha agreed to wear the glasses but initially thought she looked like a librarian, which didn’t help the whole inspiring-confidence-in-glasses-wearers thing that Sarah Michelle and Specsavers are going for. The Sunrise co-host redeemed herself, though, saying, “I feel very envious of people who wear glasses, because I think they look quite cool.”
We, for one, think glasses and very cool. If you do too, you should probably enter the Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition here, by sending in a photo of yourself wearing glasses. You’ll win a trip to Hollywood and a year’s supply of designer glasses courtesy of Specsavers. Good luck!
