Rihanna has been spotted in an eyepatch in her music videos, where she tends to be the most fashion forward. Leona Lewis wore an eyepatch-like mask to Perez Hilton's birthday party, Madonna sported one for Interview Magazine, and Heidi Klum wore one on Project Runway.

Want to get an eyepatch for yourself? There's one place to go...

Etsy, of course!

EtsyYes, you too can have a gem-encrusted babydoll hand jutting out of the spot where your eye should be. But act now! I have a feeling this particular eyepatch will be snatched right up!


EtsyWe all know there are days when nothing will do but an eyepatch. Preferably one with a fake eyeball sewn into it.

So tell me... are you rushing to buy one of your own? OF COURSE YOU ARE.
