The Oscars might be over, but we’re still talking about last night’s red carpet fashion statements. In our book, the Oscar for best-dressed goes to five men who accessorized with bold eyewear choices. Check out their Oscar-night style below and shop reading glasses inspired by their classic looks.
Bono is known for his eyewear statements. For this U2 star, tinted lenses and shield style frames are a frequent favorite. You can sport a similar style with a pair of our tinted computer glasses. Rockstar-approved, these readers will be the talk of the office.

2. Samuel L. Jackson
Nothing says retro style more than a pair of browline glasses (they’re characterized by a thicker frame along the brow and a rimless look around the rest of the lens). Samuel L. Jackson keeps things fresh yet classy by wearing a pair that is subtly blue instead of black. Take a step back in time with our Cromwell reader pictured below, available in multiple color options.

3. Christoph Waltz
Last year’s Best Supporting Actor winner, Christoph Waltz, is the epitome of smart and simple style. His glasses selection is no different. Check out our similar option, the always-in-style Brookside readers pictured below, perfect for square face shapes like Waltz.

4. Steve McQueen
As director of this year’s Best Picture, Steve McQueen has much to celebrate. We, however, are celebrating his cool, funky choice of glasses. This exaggerated take on the aviator shape is bold but not too over-the-top for everyday wear. Channel your inner director with our Telluride readers.

5. Tyler Perry
Tyler Perry pulls together his tuxedo with a practical pair of black rectangular frames. Choose a simple pair of readers like Perry’s to dress down more formal attire. In our similar option, metal temple accents add a bit of interesting stylized detail.
