If the phrase "guys don't make passes at girls who wear glasses" makes you sick with its untruth and misogyny, here's the cure. We've rounded up some of the coolest eyewear for fall, and some of the hottest bespectacled ladies. I'm willing to bet these girls have fended off their share of passes. Since we don't live in the 19th century, they probably even make passes themselves. You know how brazen girls in glasses are.
Ultimate geek chic heroine Alexa Chung not only rocks glasses on the regular, but here she wears them with a cute cocktail dress. It's not unusual to see celebs rocking four eyes, but it's usually to run errands or for a more casual event. Props to the girls who wear their glasses for all occasions, even the red carpet.
Victoria Beckham Eyewear
VB's glasses aren't available yet, but editors are already lusting after them. Victoria tweeted this picture of herself in a pair of her frames earlier this month, and you can see another pair here. There are six styles in all, ranging from $410 to $530. Look for them in January 2013.
We haven't seen any proof that Miranda Kerr wears glasses in real life, but she starred in the Jil Sander eyewear campaign in 2010. More recently she has been making headlines for wearing Terry Richardson's glasses in the outtakes on his blog from their Harper's Bazaar shoot. (Link NSFW)

Oliver Peoples Optical
Oliver Peoples is pretty much the go-to destination for quirky, sexy eyewear. These are for people committed to having their glasses be a major part of their look. From clear lucite to tortoise to every color you could desire, this is a really cool brand to check out.

Another poster girl for the quirky, geeky set is Chloe Sevigny. She plays an adorbs glasses wearing lady on FX's Louis and she wears glasses in real life all the time. She's another star who's not afraid to make her eyewear part of an evening look, and for that we love her even more than we already did.
