50 Shades of Glasses

Bob Gruen and Alexei HayThe album art of John Lennon’s 1974 record “Walls and Bridges” featured an image of the artist’s multi-bespectacled face, photographed by Bob Gruen. The over-accessorized pic riffed on Lennon’s ever-present round specs. For Elle Italia‘s April 2011 issue, photographer Alexei Hay showcased the season’s offerings of glasses, layering shade upon shade onto model Hana Soukupova for an editorial titled “Eye on You.”
