Whether you like her or not, it is no doubt that Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has left a great impression on the whole nation. Her words and deeds have defined her as intelligent, businesslike, powerful¦and undeniably sexy. Meanwhile, her famous oversized rims glasses to launch a new fad that swept the world. Therefore, it is called Sarah Palin glasses, too.
Often, eyeglasses make an indelible statement. People change clothes, hair, makeup, and accessories, but most wear the same glasses every day. In a February 2008 interview with Vogue magazine, Governor Palin voiced her need to be taken seriously and downplay her beauty queen looks by trying to be "as frumpy as I could by wearing my hair on top of my head and these schoolmarm glasses." Instead, she managed to bring eyeglasses to the epicenter of what defines sexy for the modern businesswoman.
Are you surprised what makes Governor Palin so appealing? There is something irresistibly intriguing about the dichotomy of a beautiful woman wearing glasses, a librarian with the soul of a sex kitten. In both appearance and lifestyle, Governor Palin is a study in contrast. Her hair is at once bouffant and just messy enough to be down to earth. It appears to be one bobby pin away from wanton tumbling, and yet properly¯and politically¯restrained. Her shoes are a sensible, businesslike pump in shiny red patent leather with peep toes. She presents herself as a high-powered politician with the savvy to step into the presidency should the need arise, and at the same time, a fully-involved, cookie baking, soccer mom.
Also, Sarah Palin's glasses are a dichotomous look. Those oh-so-fashionable specs pull it all together. Rather than hiding her face, the large, clear lenses magnify and reveal expressive bedroom eyes. The frameless construction is unfettered, giving her face an open, honest look. The shape flatters the shape of her face, accentuating high cheekbones and a strong jaw line. The finish was carefully selected to be non-reflective in the harsh glare of television lights. The overall impression is one of serious intelligence, but certainly not boring bookishness. Perfectly appropriate for a boardroom, a PTA meeting or the Oval Office, without dominating or detracting from Governor Palin's former beauty queen looks.
Her rimless titanium eyeglasses were made to order by Japanese designer Kazuo Kawasaki based on the Kawasaki 704 Duo frame in #34 gray, retailing at roughly $375 without lenses. Sarah Palin's glasses are custom made to fit and flatter her face, and the square shaped "SP" shape and many other shapes have been added to the commercially manufactured Kawasaki line. Although the elections have been over, Sarah Palin's stylish impact can't be forgotten.
