Instead of feeling the need to make contacts work for major events, she just sports a striking pair that either matches her outfit, or is the focal point. For last night’s Golden Globe Awards, in which she was awarded the Cecile B.

While it’s not the hottest new trend or anything of the sorts, it is a reminder that just because one wears glasses doesn’t mean they have to hide behind them. To be honest, they can make an outfit pop! If you were wondering where she picks her many pairs out from, she’s a fan of Warby Parker among other popular brands and designers:

She is definitely leading the way when it comes to wearing a sleek pair of frames for very special shindigs. Check out 10 other women of color who have have made red carpet glasses a unique and chic look.
