event BRILDRAGER VAN HET JAAR
Last thursday it was time for the annual spectacle wearer of the year (in Dutch: "brillendrager van het jaar") contest. In this contest, twelve participants -each from a different province- compete for the title of spectacle wearer of the year. But this isn't the only thing the winner wins, besides the title the winner gets a modeling contract offered, a weekend trip to Paris and a professional photoshoot for the Specsavers magazine. So there's much at stake for the ladies and only the twelve best were chosen to rock the runway of the Club Trouw building.
I didn't expect there would be an actual catwalk show. That was such a pleasant surprise! The show was presented by the dutch actress Nikkie Plessen and all twelve contestants were styled from head to toe by six different stylists. The styling was divided in two categories; Color Blocking and Gold, each contestant wore an outfit from these two categories. In front of the skilled judges the candidates showed us how great the look with glasses. Here are some pictures of the show, dearies.

2 Large glasses which hung at the ceiling as decoration
