Eva Longoria is making a spectacle of herself…
The 40-year-old Mexican American actress and philanthropist has signed on as a style ambassador for Specsavers.
As part of the agreement, Longoria will serve as the judge for the 2015 Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition presented by the New Zealand eyewear brand.
“As a glasses wearer I care about looking great in my frames,” says Longoria. “That’s why I’m thrilled to be launching Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition and visiting New Zealand later this month to kick off the search.
“Wearing glasses is all about having fun and embracing your style. Whether I’m on set filming, studying or at a special event, accessorizing my look with glasses gives me confidence and allows me to make the ultimate style statement.”
Spectacle Wearer of the Year is a nationwide search to find New Zealand’s most stylish and confident spec-wearer. Longoria will join New Zealand comedian, Jeremy Corbett and L’Oréal Professionnel stylist, Peter Dutton to judge the competition.
Longoria became a spectacle wearer herself four years ago, after noticing her eyes felt strained from studying late at night for a Masters degree. An eye test revealed Eva needed glasses for reading, which have since become an invaluable part of her life – whether hitting the books or reading a script for her latest role.
The winner will be crowned New Zealand’s Spectacle Wearer of the Year for 2015 and will receive a trip for two to Los Angeles, to meet Longoria on set where she films her latest role. They will also receove spending money and a Spectacle Wearer of the Year prize pack including $500 worth of product from L’Oréal Professionnel and a year’s supply of designer glasses from Specsavers.
Longoria follows in the footsteps of previous ambassadors including; actress Sarah Michelle Gellar, style icon and Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, WORLD designer Denise L’Estrange-Corbet, model and TV personality Colin Mathura-Jeffree, TV fashion star Gok Wan and media personality Paul Henry.
