Harry Potter/Daniel Radcliffe
Harry Potter has famous eyes for two reasons. First, his eyes are a central plot point in all the Harry Potter books. “You have your mother’s eyes,” is a remark you hear frequently in all the movies. In the books Harry’s eyes are written as green, but on screen Daniel Radcliffe’s eyes are blue. “No problem”, according to JK Rowling. The author says she didn’t care what color eyes the actor had as long as they matched the eye color of the actor playing Lily, Harry’s mother. The second reason for fame is that Harry of course wears those distinctive round glasses. Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t wear glasses but after seven books and eight films, it looks like he’s stuck with them! If you’re looking for Harry glasses, you want the “round” profile. Coastal.com has a few pairs I thought would fit the bill but not look costumy. Check out Lacoste 12235, and Joseph Marc 4058.

What’s famous about Lady Gaga’s eyes? In reality, nothing. It was her Bad Romance video that started all the fuss. Her eyes in the video were computer enhanced to look huge, doll-like (and a bit creepy, to be honest). The look started a fan stampede to duplicate Gaga’s eyes using oversize contact lenses. Hence Gaga Contacts, or Circle Lenses. Typically, these lenses have a dark outer ring that gives the impression of bigger, cartoon-like eyes. Non-corrective contacts, like Circle Lenses, should be properly fitted by an eye care practitioner. Remember, all contacts are considered medical devices and should be worn under supervision of an eye doctor.
