    Yesterday, while we were all focusing on Kate Middleton's practically vintage (circa 2006) cheery, cherry red Armani coatPrince William was quietly rocking a new look next to his fashion-forward, royal missus. Or at least, a look we've rarely seen on him: He was bespectacled! Yes, the Duke of Cambridge appeared to have gone full Harry Potter for his grandmother, the Queen's annual pre-Christmas lunch. And he did it oh-so-well!

    As HuffPost points out, the metal-rim glasses are working for the Prince in part because he's a "tired dad whose newborn has been keeping up him all night" now, and he has the "dad fashion sense to go with it." Ha, yes! So cute!

    If I was Kim Kardashian, I'd most likely be wallowing in a pint of Ben & Jerry's right now after hearing the recent news that ex-boyfriend Reggie Bush is expecting his first child with his current girlfriend. But heck, Kim's better than that. Oh, you're gonna have a kid Reggie? Well I'm gonna go look for a house with Kanye! Take that, stud.

    Well, that's how it went down in my mind anyway. Kim and Kanye just happened to be out in Miami yesterday checking out multi-million dollar mansions. Pretty good distraction, wouldn't you say? Considering Kim and Kanye are so totally getting hitched any day now, it doesn't surprise me, either.

    What does surprise me, though, are those massive mirrors overtaking her face. Wait, is that an umbrella Kanye's holding? So it's ... raining. And Kim's still rocking stunner shades big enough to hide the sun from all of Miami combined?

    I understand the whole big sunglasses trend. Heck, I love it. But these, well, they're a tad excessive don'tcha think?

    Kardashian stalker alert. Tell the authorities, Kim was seen working out with Kourtney and her gal pal Real Housewives star Larsa Pippen wearing GLASSES. Yes, the accessory otherwise known as spectacles, formerly known as bifocals, always identified as slightly nerdy with a twist of sex appeal.

    It's not that I don't think that Kim looks good in the glasses. Hell yeah she does. They're excellent for her face shape. Besides, Kim could look good in pretty much anything (except a blue pencil skirt, it seems).

    Except there's one little issue here. These glasses are TOTAL fakes. So why on EARTH is Kimmy wearing them to work out?

    When you find a good pair of sunglasses, you stick with 'em. For me, I'm obsessed with my Ray-Ban Wayfarers. For Kourtney Kardashian, she can't get enough of her Tom Ford Nikita Cat Eye Sunglasses. Next to those black knee high boots, these puppies have got to be her fave accessory. She's been spotted wearing them everywhere lately!

    I love the way that they accentuate her cheekbones, and adore the 1950s vibe they give off. I totally want a pair! The only problem? Kourt's beautiful shades cost a pretty penny. Well, a lot of pennies. A cool $360, to be exact.

    Not to worry though -- I've found a whole slew of look-alikes that should do the job just fine. Check 'em out:

  • 7 Sexiest Celebrities in Specs

    When I was diagnosed with far-sightedness, I was mortified. And yes, I use the term "diagnosed" because for a 9-year-old, that's what it felt like. Glasses = dork. Which is basically the worst thing ever.

    I feared that I would be called Four Eyes, Froggle Goggles, Crazy Eyes, Metal Eyes ... the list goes on. Gosh kids are mean. It was a reputation savior when my parents finally caved for contacts in middle school.

    Not sure if it's because I'm an adult or because specs have gotten much cooler in the last 20 years, but now I find them to be a pretty hot accessory. So nah, nah, nah nah, nah to all of you glass-free people. Who's the cool one now?

    My name is Lindsay Ferrier and these are my eyeglasses.

    I hadn't even thought of writing about my glasses as a style post until I was checking out the Curvy Girl Guide today and read Ali Martell's post about her "confidence glasses."

    I have a pair of confidence glasses, too! I thought to myself.

    Actually, I have two pairs. Like Ali's, they are vintage and they have my real prescription in them, and like Ali, I LOVE my glasses.

    Vintage frames really can be awesome, and they'll definitely get you a lot of attention.

    But if you're looking for a pair of your own, there's one very important aspect you must consider ...
